the video to this iotunn looks trippy
Decker 10:16:06 PM
Nappy burpday, Mr. Bick! \m/
KFAI 10:16:39 PM
The band name 'Iotunn' is Old Norse for 'jรฆtte' in Danish; 'Giant' in English
Chris Bick 10:16:50 PM
Thanks, all. Nothing like a cold brew and some heavy tunes to finish out the night.
Trent Horselord 10:18:04 PM
KFAI 10:18:25 PM
Hey Trent!
Decker 10:18:52 PM
When you get to death metal, how about some Sepiroth - Their Heads, our Glory?
KFAI 10:19:57 PM
Decker 10:20:55 PM
Oi, Trent! \m/
Chris Bick 10:22:46 PM
New Cryptosis, perhaps?
Trent Horselord 10:23:27 PM
Chad Isakson 10:29:09 PM
This set is really helping me power through some work tonight...Thanks!
Decker 10:31:34 PM
Beitenhold has an awesome ambigram logo too!
Decker 10:33:33 PM
Arise is one of a handful of albums I can pinpoint as being truly influential in my art hustle, unbelievably killer album still.
Darth Riffeous 10:38:21 PM
all hail the egg
Decker 10:39:08 PM
Egg came first, the mystery has been asnwered
Decker 10:39:57 PM
KFAI 10:40:45 PM
I hope that wasn't too rambly..
Chad Isakson 10:41:00 PM
Well done.

Matthew Gurrola 10:43:32 PM
Great story there.
KFAI 10:44:07 PM
Last week, the photo I posted with the Roots album, Sepultura commented on it, and it got over 500 likes.
Decker 10:44:40 PM
KFAI 10:44:58 PM
Hoping for similar results this week for Arise. =P
KFAI 10:48:17 PM
One more tidbit on Arise: It was released early in Brazil with the original Scott Burns mix, to help promote the band's appearance at Rock in Rio festival.
Chris Bick 10:54:48 PM
Love the trivia.
Decker 10:58:41 PM
That Sanguisugabogg snare tho
KFAI 10:59:03 PM
Chad Isakson 11:03:17 PM
Anyone have a first concert on the calendar for 2021 that (hopefully) happens?
Decker 11:03:45 PM
Ministry, Helmet, Frontline Assembly looks tasty and promising.
KFAI 11:04:29 PM
Not yet
Decker 11:05:12 PM
Waiting to see what percenages of folks get the vax, honestly, before I buy any ticket for anything tho.
Chris Bick 11:07:09 PM
Rammstein at the Bank still scheduled for September, but I doubt it. European leg was pushed back to 2022.
Chad Isakson 11:07:56 PM
I'm hanging onto my Primus, Megadeth / LOG, and Deftones / Gojria tickets from last year. Realllllllllly hoping that run happens at the Armory, but wishful thinking I'm afraid :(
Darth Riffeous 11:08:39 PM
that primus looked cool af
Chad Isakson 11:11:11 PM
The full Rush - A Farewell to Kings album set before they came back for their performance...would be awesome to see.
Darth Riffeous 11:13:19 PM

KFAI 11:25:10 PM
