@vst Didn't you listen to The Infection? ^^ However, interesting to read that they have fun making music. Maybe the new record won't be as bad as I imagined after TI..?

2 words, bad press. Justin Beiber needed a break, so they decided to roast this poor guy.

Chimaira is a great band. Rob Arnold is a sick guitarist. I'm lookin' forward to their next album. And this song isn't that bad. Good topic to make this song too haha.

I'm actually a Charlie Sheen fan. Done a great job on numerous films plus seems like a good guy, judging by the interviews. AND - shock - I think he should clean up. In this life we all come to the same end eventually, and Charlie is taking the short-cut there, and that's a damn shame. Hope he wakes the f*** up. No one can OD x amount of times and gets away with it.
