In Flames, Metallica, Bad Religion and Kate Nash all on the same bill, huh? I thought I'd never see the day.

H.I.M stands for His Impotent Mediocracy. Did you guys know that? Westfallen is your wifey not a metal fan?

Definitely not. She's into orchestral music, and doesn't like stuff with lyrics for the most part. It's a good balance for me :)

Oh, yeah. I thought H.I.M. meant Hedonistic Immoral Molestation! But not really.

Get her into symphonic black metal West. She may like it. More power to you though. I could not be with someone that did not like metal. Tried it once and refuse to ever do it again.

Honestly, Prodigy, RATM,and Incubus all on the same bill blows my mind to hell. i never thought i would see the day. Well, ever since the Slayer/Manson concert happened, i guess anythings possible... At least now a Nirvana/Hendrix/Tupac Ressurection tour does'nt seem as far fetched as it used to. Still impossible, but more believable to me now at least.

Now Playing: Stillkept- "Priestmonkey"

Same here Oz. I was wondering when I was going to hear something about that band. I enjoy both soulfly and Sepultura in different amounts, and I was hoping for something interesting outta Cavalera upcoming. Have you heard any of the actual music yet? Cuz I would love to be able to hear it before the album actually gets let outside to play.

Now Playing: Iron Maiden- "Run to the Hills"

I think there's some samples on the roadrunner site but I was unable to stream/ download them. Though they've just been confirmed for Graspop so I can't wait!

Simple Plan and Dimmu Borgir. That ought to be an interesting clash of subcultures.

Now Playing: Pink Floyd- "Welcome to the Machine"

thx Oz, ya I listened to the one track they had on roadrunner, it's called Sanctuary. Overall it sounds rather thrash-metalish sounding, and actually quite good. I have high hopes for this new project now.

Now Playing: Monty Python- "I've Got A Lovely Bunch Of Coconuts"

I haven't heard it yet. For some reason they ain't put any music on their myspace page. Not cool.

I wanna wait and just buy the album. Bit of a risk but I like it that way, I find I can tell if it's a better album that way.

Now playing: Drowning Pool- Sinner
