THE COVER IS KIND OF CARTOONY, BUT I STILL LIKE IT. THEY SHOULD HAVE INCORPORATED THE SKULL AND WINGS LOGO INTO THE ARTWORK SOMEHOW............I'VE READ THE NEW MUSIC IS GOING TO BE MORE IN THE VEIN OF CLASSIC BLUESY METAL, IN THE STYLE OF LED ZEPPELIN AND BLACK SABBATH.

I'm guessing "poor ol lil' Venger" is myself? lol, not a fan of A7X anymore actually, they have sucked sh** since their self-titled album so I have as low hopes for this as I did for Nightmare. Album art does kick a$$ though.

And thanks for the love Hellrat, I am very proud of my above grade jibs.

^eh, no...ya ain't the lil Venger bro. you'd have to take a quite long and bumpy road to get all the way down to that level...and it gets ever more frothy the deeper you go, see? its dirty business

I do love you however, my good dear Lordy ;)

A buddy of mine picked a fight with some loudmouth at a bar last weekend. He beat the sh!t out of the guy while his GF caught it all on video. When he was done, he dropped a turd on the dudes chest and rubbed his filthy anus all over the guys face. Youtube took it down in just a few minutes of it being up and sent him a message stating that one of the parties in the video didn't give consent and charges may be pending. I told my buddy that he had nothing to worry about becuase I don't care who you are... You don't want ANYBODY to ever see you being degraded like that. LMFAO!

^heh, exactly...if things could always be so straightforward eh?

Funny thing about some of these cherries on the interwebz is that they don't even realize (or refuse to acknowledge) that there's a fresh steamer laid across their sh!t and a jolly farting bung pressed up in their grill...

What's that old saying about good diplomacy? the art of telling a man to go to hell, so that he looks forward to making the trip?

I remember one time hammering an ignorant and lippy board member so hard and comprehensively at a Council meeting that he retracted all of his statements and proceded to thank me shamelessly and sincerely...still get x-mas cards from him and his wife and nobody who knows his dipsh!t a$$ has ever taken him seriously since

quality :)
