The Scala isn't there any more - you can check!


As a testament to the fact that I shouldn't have come in to work today, I have actually checked. Either your story is false or the Scala has been rebuilt, at least if this is the Scala you refer to.

Champion Rabbit needs some reconditioning in the harshest possible terms.

Just saw them for the umpteenth time and JESUS ORC DESTROYING CHRIST.


If you can name me a more psychically and sonically crushing metal band, I'll grant you a quest item that even a 2d20 cannot match. High On Fire are an apotheosis of metal, the sound of a genre orgasming lava into the most tender orifices of Gaea.

In summary...Des fucking RULES the wasteland.

The more I've listened to them, the harder time I've had thinking of them as anything but an overly Melvins band with the guy from Prong singing. That's all I hear anymore. That, and I go "wow, that's a nice guitar sound". But it still doesn't hold a candle to the Melvins, for me, as far as Melvins bands go.

Still, NOT CRAP. WF:2

Every time they play here in NYC there is some extenuating circumstance that keeps me from seeing them.

Damn them for playing Friday nights. CRAP.

Their records make me happy. This is not crap.

Hey Kids,

Has anybody hear checked out Kalas? It's Matt's new band...

I work for the record label that put out their album... but really I am a fan and surprised nobody has made mention yet. It's a bit more "classic metal" sounding and maybe a little more polished than HoF. Five piece band with matt singing. It's pretty excellent.

Sorry to promote like this but I really dig the record and wouldn't have mentioned it otherwise.

Cheers,

I've heard a bit of it and I dig it. Weird not to hear Pike's guitar along with his voice, but it's still damn good metal.

This band is amazing. Matt Pike's talent, in my opinion, is amazing.

His brain, however, is mush.

We have a mutual friend, and I've met him casually on several occasions. When there is a man with me in his presence, he is nice and slightly respectful. When there is not, he pretty much only stops short of goosing my pussy because he's too wasted to aim right. The last time I saw him, he said hi, and then......"Dude, yer lookin' hot." The look in his eye at the moment told me to turn and walk away slowly as not to alert the beast to my flight by sudden movements.

When he played the Relapse fest, I practically had to hold him up for a while, right before he was kicked out of his OWN SHOW.

I won't give up on him, but JEEEZ! Give me a break next time guy!

HA! Yeah, that sounds about right.

The guy likes his alkeehawl. And it doesn't exactly turn him into Noel Coward.

As long as he can produce this kind of stoned metal bliss (and he certainly does for me), I'll cut him a little slack.

"Blessed Black Wings" - not crap

It did, however, make me crap into my dice bag.

So Marsupialized likes Cocorosie and hates High On Fire...



Goddammit, we've been had! Marsupialized is Mandy Moore! (Though it's about time this board had a celebrity befitting it's status as the Premier Rock Forum.)

Saw the new line up last night, playing mostly stuff from the new record. Fucking hell. I mean really, fucking hell.

Better than ever. Although Pike's 9 string guitar had me confused for a short while.

I think they are faster and more straightforward than the Melvins. Two different kinds of bands doing different things.

Looking forward to the new album. Not Crap.

To a woman, Matt Pike said but hopefully never wrote:"Dude, yer lookin' hot"


I'd see a band called either 'Goose Pussy' or 'Pussy Goose'.

Probably 'Goose Pussy'.
