Having recenlty changed their name from Dahlgren Prophecy, the Frederick, Maryland band Dismal Tide has decided to call it quits. Here's a statement from the band:
"It is with a heavy heart that we offer the following news. After over two and a half years, Dismal Tide, or as many of you have known us Dahlgren Prophecy, has decided to call it quits. There is no ill will or animosity amongst us, we have just decided that it is time for everybody to move on. The conflicting schedules of everybody in the band have proven it difficult for us to dedicate the time and effort to this project that we feel it would truly deserve to accomplish what we originally set out to do. We will always look upon the past few years with fond memories, we've managed to play some amazing shows, meet some incredible bands, been lucky enough to have some of the best fans a band could hope for, and even managed to sneak a few free beers out of the deal. We'd like to thank all of you who have shown your support to us over the years, and we'll miss working with the people we've managed to work with in this project. Most of all, we'd like to send our love and respect to all the band members that we have worked with in the past, including Chris "Bingo" Wilson, Charles "Chuck" Johnson, and Tommy Mott.
"Look for new projects from all of us in the near future, you can currently catch Cliff Rehder in Solar Powered Sun Destroyer and look forward to hearing new material from Buddy Buel's old band Horror of Horrors. We leave you all with these words, fuck old women, kill your family, eat the dog, start suicide cults, engage in angry sex on a regular basis, huff the fumes from your piss and shit to get high, and take to heart all the other life's lessons that we have tried to instill in you through our music."
After playing under the name Dahlgren Prophecy for the past two and a half years, the Frederick, Maryland metal band has decided to change their name to Dismal Tide. The main reason for this is due to changes in line up and the direction of the newer material. "We are no longer the same band that we used to be, and so it's only fitting to change the name to go with the new directions," the band states.
Dismal Tide will head into the studio with Mike Schleibaum in late June and is expecting to have a new release by mid- to late summer.

Saturday, May 19 marked my first venture out to the new local metal spot in Frederick, Maryland - Krug's Place. They've been booking local metal bands there for nearly a year, but my last local show was at the Braddock Inn in December 2005, which had since stopped booking bands after several changes of ownership. Krug's is a decent sized place located on East Street - and much better suited for live performances than the Braddock Inn - with a total capacity nearing 300. The bar and billiards areas are separate from the room with the stage, however, so it would probably accomodate 150 people at most for the show. That would be pretty packed since there are tables in that room and the floor area directly in front of the stage ("the pit") is fairly small. More...
