Fatality Posts Final "Western Annihilation" Tour Blog

Toronto party thrashers Fatality have posted the final tour blog online from the band's "Western Annihilation Tour." You can check out an excerpt from the blog below.

"So far on this tour, we have been in this godforsaken van for roughly 150 hours. That’s about 5 days in a row innit? Damn, that’s a lot of time to reflect on how awful I am, while simultaneously smelling other peoples flatulents.

"One of the hardest drives was to Phoenix, Arizona. It is the kind of heat that just makes you want to weep openly in front of all of strangers. The kind of humid thick heat that makes you sluggish, shiny and uncomfortable. We still managed to maintain some optimism because we were headed for the Inner City Youth Centre to play with one of our favorite bands on the planet: Vektor. For those who don’t know, Vektor is a fantastic 4 piece metal band that plays a very unusual and progressive style of thrash metal. Nothing better then playing a set and then sitting back with a few Millers and watching one of the best bands on the continent. The Vektor boys were also nice enough to let us stay at their house, which was a treat. The bass player Frank entertained the shit out of us by blowing up beer cans in the backyard with his assortment of weapons.

"Our next gig would prove to be the most unique show of our tour without a single doubt. We had a gig at the Amped Performance Centre in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Apparently last minute the Venue cancelled for any number of reasons so we were without a goddamn venue. The guitar player Amanda from the Albuquerque’s all girl 3 piece Suspended decided to have the show in her living room instead. So we headed through this Mexican neighborhood that looked like the set from Steven King's 'The Stand.' We finally made it to the house and were met by a bunch of really cool Mexican metal fans. Everyone was extremely warm and inviting. We all shot the shit, ate good BBQ and drank cold beers. Shortly after Suspended set up in the living room and turned the hell up. I was impressed to say the least. The band is made up of 3 cute Mexican chicks but they had enough crushing heaviness and groove to power a Mexican prison. I was so much happier at this house party than I ever would have been at any venue. When you are playing a concert theatre it is always so formal. It was a nice change of pace to play for everyone in a relaxed social setting."
