Darth Riffeous 10:08:18 PM

Joshua Decker 10:08:29 PM
Oh I have no shame, trust lollll
KFAI 10:08:58 PM
Whatever gets the job done.
Joshua Decker 10:09:09 PM
KFAI 10:09:28 PM
I need to get some Hamm's if I've gonna be rocking this show from home for a while.
Uncle Joey 10:09:36 PM
Real talk though, when this shit is over we gotta get together and I'll put on a bad ass spread. Good beer, good food. I'm ready to see other humans again.
KFAI 10:09:51 PM
For sure Joe!
Joshua Decker 10:10:02 PM
I be all about that mess, Joe!
Joshua Decker 10:11:16 PM
New Testament is a LOT stronger than I anticipated
KFAI 10:12:11 PM
Yeah, it's a step back in the right direction.
Darth Riffeous 10:12:17 PM
fuck yea! anyone watch those day in the life of testament vids, chuck billy smokes weed and golfs
KFAI 10:12:33 PM
haha, are those new?
Eric Wing 10:13:05 PM

Darth Riffeous 10:13:07 PM
Matthew Gurrola 10:13:12 PM
Yeah those testament vids are cool.
Darth Riffeous 10:13:22 PM

KFAI 10:13:25 PM
Hi Eric!
Eric Wing 10:13:43 PM
this new testament actually kinda rules damn
KFAI 10:14:33 PM
Yeah, we were all just saying that. =)
KFAI 10:14:47 PM
That first solo was killer too.
Eric Wing 10:15:09 PM
really glad this band is still awesome
KFAI 10:15:10 PM
The second one was obviously Eric Petersen. =\
Eric Wing 10:15:18 PM
Eric Wing 10:15:22 PM
he's doing his best
KFAI 10:15:37 PM
That's true, still love him.
Uncle Joey 10:15:54 PM
I can definitely get down with this. Gotta dig back through the thrash back catalogues again.....
Eric Wing 10:16:05 PM
KFAI 10:16:23 PM
Uncle Joey 10:16:32 PM
The timing on that was uncanny.
KFAI 10:16:39 PM
Eric Wing 10:16:45 PM
that scream hurt like hell haha
KFAI 10:16:57 PM
I believe it!
Eric Wing 10:17:10 PM
actually the second one was worse, almost passed out afterwards hahaha
KFAI 10:17:20 PM
Eric Wing 10:17:37 PM
i mean it lasts almost 30 seconds, i've only got so much air haha
Eric Wing 10:17:56 PM
ah here it comes
KFAI 10:18:13 PM
KFAI 10:18:26 PM
KFAI 10:19:11 PM
Could you just record one short scream and have the computer stretch it out for you?
Darth Riffeous 10:19:25 PM
eric my fiance is both worried for you and impressed :D
Eric Wing 10:19:34 PM
to a point i could haha
Eric Wing 10:19:52 PM
i'm totally ok darth hahaha, that scream was so cathartic, i felt GREAT afterwards
Joshua Decker 10:21:18 PM
Eric Wing 10:21:48 PM
an evening of bangers tonight i see
KFAI 10:22:09 PM
All bangers, all the time
Joshua Decker 10:22:23 PM
Morke AND some Panopticon, tickling all my bones
Eric Wing 10:22:38 PM
there's a band name, Bone Tickler
Joshua Decker 10:22:58 PM
Darth Riffeous 10:23:44 PM
Fickle Tone Records
Darth Riffeous 10:23:58 PM
sounds like a bluegrass label
KFAI 10:24:06 PM
sure does
Uncle Joey 10:24:12 PM
I'm not convinced it isn't one already. Haha
Joshua Decker 10:24:24 PM
Bickletoner on Tickle Fone Records
KFAI 10:24:31 PM
How about Rib Rustler?
Joshua Decker 10:24:41 PM
Uncle Joey 10:25:04 PM
The alliteration on that. -chef's kiss-
Joshua Decker 10:25:38 PM
Eric Wing 10:25:43 PM
KFAI 10:25:57 PM
KFAI 10:27:12 PM
Fickle Pickle Tickle
Joshua Decker 10:27:57 PM
Joshua Decker 10:29:02 PM
I actually REALLY liked that first minute or two.
Uncle Joey 10:30:03 PM
Some solid gutturals on this bad boy. Respect.
KFAI 10:30:11 PM
I like the drumming
KFAI 10:31:50 PM
my hand reaches out for another beer....
Joshua Decker 10:33:07 PM
Typically when I hear/read the term deathcore I feel underwhelmed upon hearing It just doesn't speak to me at this stage in life, but I'll go back and be checking out Cardijum, some good shit happening there.
Joshua Decker 10:33:51 PM
I'm on beer 3 and a couple whisky sippers, let's go fsm
Uncle Joey 10:34:13 PM
Metalcore is really hit and miss for me. Funny enough, a lot of the reviews GDT got slated RED\\SHIFT at least in part as metalcore which seemed surprising to me.
Joshua Decker 10:35:31 PM
That's weird AF, I mean I kinda get where there might be a mention in a review, but to label you guys as Metalcore? No way.
Darth Riffeous 10:35:34 PM
its your hat >D
Uncle Joey 10:35:28 PM
Thinking it's time to switch to bourbon after this beer goes down. No work tomorrow means I can sleep through the hangover. :]
Darth Riffeous 10:35:47 PM
(which is awesome)
KFAI 10:36:05 PM
maybe it's the guitar tone in some spots?
Uncle Joey 10:36:15 PM
Yeah, it's usually a song or two that get labeled as sounding metalcore or having that influence, but even then I guess I never realized it?
Uncle Joey 10:36:29 PM
That could make sense Bill. I can cop to that.
Joshua Decker 10:36:52 PM
I can see that, Bill
Joshua Decker 10:37:08 PM
lol worrrrd
Uncle Joey 10:37:38 PM
Lotta ripping solos in this playlist. Making me feel like I need to go practice. Haha
Joshua Decker 10:37:51 PM
Antiverse is the realness
Uncle Joey 10:37:53 PM
Yeah, these guys kick shit.
KFAI 10:38:07 PM
The solos these Antiverse boys can play airen't fair
Uncle Joey 10:38:03 PM
Cool dudes too
Joshua Decker 10:38:36 PM
Mad solos, mad riffs
KFAI 10:38:41 PM
Need another show with Red//Shift and Antiverse
Uncle Joey 10:38:46 PM
I agree most heartily Bill.
Joshua Decker 10:39:10 PM
Uncle Joey 10:39:04 PM
That first KFAI show we did was so god damned good.
Uncle Joey 10:39:27 PM
There have been few other local line-ups that have stacked up for me.
KFAI 10:40:01 PM
I still can't believe I saw Panopticon, Obsequiae & False on a Monday night.
Uncle Joey 10:40:13 PM
Damn. That is a strong lineup.
Darth Riffeous 10:40:26 PM
Joshua Decker 10:40:36 PM
It checked all the boxes
Uncle Joey 10:40:35 PM
I don't think I've actually seen any of those bands live shockingly.
KFAI 10:41:04 PM
Sold out show at Triple Rock too.
Joshua Decker 10:41:08 PM
KFAI 10:41:16 PM
Joshua Decker 10:41:55 PM
There has never been a better show.
Uncle Joey 10:41:54 PM
Let's put on all of the most bad ass shows once we finally can again. Just go fucking ham.
KFAI 10:42:15 PM
Other time I saw Obsequiae was at 7th Street with False, Pig's Blood and The Conqueror Worm
KFAI 10:43:02 PM
In beer news, I only had one Zombie Dust, so I'm onto a beer mix.
Joshua Decker 10:43:21 PM
I was at that show too,.
Lydia Stark 10:43:43 PM
hey everyone - monty python had my attention until right now. they never did find that grail, did they? what did i miss?
Joshua Decker 10:43:52 PM
Im gooodnn dronk
KFAI 10:43:55 PM
That's the show were I met Rick Jackson
Joshua Decker 10:44:11 PM
KFAI 10:44:46 PM
He actually, stayed at my house after the show, and I made him do Roar of the Underground with me after the show because it was on a Friday night!
KFAI 10:45:09 PM
Yeah, Rick Jackson the review guy from Michigan.
KFAI 10:45:33 PM
Hi Metal Kid. I can't remember if they find the grail...
Joshua Decker 10:45:39 PM
Rick, you (Bill), and me all met the same night, at least with you Bill?
Joshua Decker 10:46:09 PM
Joshua Decker 10:46:30 PM
I love metal so hard right now
Uncle Joey 10:46:37 PM
It is a beautiful thing.
Joshua Decker 10:49:38 PM
I can't go see Former Worlds live when we can do that again.
KFAI 10:50:18 PM
Yeah, Rick had posted on the event page that he just had to see False for their 5 year anniversary show because they were his favorite band. And mentioned wanting a place to crash.
Matthew Gurrola 10:50:30 PM
I saw them open for Yob couple years ago. Love this LP. Got it from them at the swap meet.
KFAI 10:50:27 PM
So I offered.
Joshua Decker 10:51:26 PM
SO rad
Uncle Joey 10:52:12 PM
These guys and YOB would have been a kick ass show.
Matthew Gurrola 10:52:41 PM
Bell Witch was with them too.
KFAI 10:52:44 PM
Uncle Joey 10:53:06 PM
Ddaaaammmmn. There were a couple years where I missed every good show cause I was working nights. Real bummer.
Joshua Decker 10:53:41 PM
I would fall so hard for Erin if I went and saw these guys live, jufffffffffff
KFAI 10:53:55 PM
She's amazing live.
Joshua Decker 10:54:11 PM
I imagine!
KFAI 10:54:29 PM
I had Former Worlds open for the Chasm about a year ago.
Joshua Decker 10:55:06 PM
I remember that, ciukdnt make it for pprobably some dumb reasoin
Joshua Decker 10:55:38 PM
KFAI 10:56:45 PM
Joshua Decker 10:58:39 PM
New Voivod album in the works. Thoughts?
KFAI 10:59:02 PM
I haven't listened to the last album as much as I would have liked.
KFAI 10:59:20 PM
So I"m not ready for more music from them yet.
Joshua Decker 10:59:24 PM
I really liked it, but it's not a HITTER
Lydia Stark 10:59:38 PM
so much new thrash right now. can’t be a coincidence that we have releases from warbringer, kreator, testament...
KFAI 11:00:01 PM
Yeah, it's almost too proggy? No offense Joe.
Joshua Decker 10:59:59 PM
It's a return visirtor, IMO
Matthew Gurrola 11:00:19 PM
I wonder how many more notable bands are going to postpone albums.
KFAI 11:00:53 PM
I don't get why they are doing that? What with digital downloads/streaming and mailorder.
Joshua Decker 11:01:10 PM
worth the visits tho
Matthew Gurrola 11:01:32 PM
Yes. It will be over saturated when things open and everyone will be broke.
Uncle Joey 11:05:04 PM
No offense taken Bill. Prog is definitely something that can be easily abused. We did it for almost an hour and a half on our album. Lol
Uncle Joey 11:06:08 PM
Oh Hell yeah, I'm ready for some Igorrr
Darth Riffeous 11:06:32 PM
Uncle Joey 11:07:39 PM
New album is a really fun trip
Mr. Muench 11:09:11 PM
Matthew Gurrola 11:10:34 PM
It's funny Igorrr isn't even listed on Encyclopaedia Metallum. Too weird for them?
Uncle Joey 11:12:27 PM
I can see it. I think he's a bit too genre bendy for em.
Mr. Muench 11:14:13 PM
Oath of Cruelty..good stuff!
KFAI 11:15:04 PM
Hi Muench!
Mr. Muench 11:15:29 PM
Cheers to all!
Uncle Joey 11:16:03 PM
Matthew Gurrola 11:17:05 PM
Next up: Hammerheart - Thor's Porter.
KFAI 11:17:44 PM
Matthew Gurrola 11:18:20 PM
Still got a bunch of cans at the Ale Jail.
Mr. Muench 11:20:31 PM
tasty solo
Lydia Stark 11:22:48 PM
i always look forward to hearing what new interesting carts we get each week
Mr. Muench 11:23:22 PM
hahaha I hear you!
Uncle Joey 11:24:41 PM
That's part of the fun of the show!
KFAI 11:25:46 PM
Bonjuer, Minnesota!
Eric Jensen 11:35:01 PM
Hi bill
KFAI 11:35:41 PM
Hi, Eric how are you?
Eric Jensen 11:38:11 PM
Good man. When we can we need to get together. Been a while.
KFAI 11:38:43 PM
Matthew Gurrola 11:45:51 PM
KFAI 11:56:41 PM

Matthew Gurrola 11:56:59 PM
