Hello Al, Matt!
Allan Towne 10:10:30 PM
Joshua Decker 10:11:04 PM
Any Cerebral Rot would be a welcomed addition to my earholes tonight :)
Matthew Gurrola 10:11:06 PM
Christ is Dead over Kanye's Jesus is King?
KFAI 10:11:47 PM
Matthew Gurrola 10:13:02 PM
Can you imagine how crazy things will get if he actually runs for Prez?
KFAI 10:14:34 PM
Joshua Decker 10:14:40 PM
Don't talk like that
Allan Towne 10:16:11 PM
Scary thing is he could win
Joshua Decker 10:16:23 PM
If Trump did, Kanye most certainly would
Allan Towne 10:16:47 PM
New Unfathomable Ruination would be cool to hear
Allan Towne 10:17:05 PM
As well as new Hideous Divinity
Joshua Decker 10:17:34 PM
Fuck everything tho, I'm gettin' me a "FREE HUGS" shirt
KFAI 10:23:20 PM
Matthew Gurrola 10:23:33 PM
Which is better in the death category this year, Tomb Mold, Gatecreeper, Blood Incantation, or Cattle Decap?
KFAI 10:24:44 PM
Not gonna tip my hand early...
Joshua Decker 10:26:05 PM
Of those 4? I easily go with Tomb Mold. SUPER underwhelmed by the other 3.
Allan Towne 10:27:28 PM
Cattle is my fav band but Im honestly not sure how I feel about the new one yet.
KFAI 10:29:16 PM
I haven't sunk my teeth into the New CAttle yet
Joshua Decker 10:31:22 PM
2019 belongs to black metal, IMO. No year of as many incredible "black metal" releases ever.
Allan Towne 10:31:36 PM
New Nott is amazing
Joshua Decker 10:31:52 PM
Allan Towne 10:32:49 PM
Matthew Gurrola 10:34:23 PM
Really love the new Abigail Willaims. Up there with False, 1349, and Darkthrone.
Joshua Decker 10:36:01 PM
FALSE. #miocdrop lol
Joshua Decker 10:36:48 PM
Krallice, Cairn off Gilead too. But I'm gonna shit up, literally 100s of amazing black metal releases this year
KFAI 10:39:55 PM
I'd like to hear more of what you like in black metal, cuz I didn't come across a ton.
Joshua Decker 10:41:16 PM
My year end post will be littered with them ;)
KFAI 10:41:22 PM
Matthew Gurrola 10:42:48 PM
For NWOBHM it's gotta be Angel Witch.
KFAI 10:43:23 PM
That's a good one
Joshua Decker 10:45:17 PM
KFAI 10:45:38 PM
Haven't heard Cerebral Rot in a while, and it really sounds like Demilich
Joshua Decker 10:45:48 PM
Fuckin' love this album, thx!
Matthew Gurrola 10:46:31 PM
Speaking of Angel, lets hear "Death from Andromeda."
Joshua Decker 10:50:00 PM
Joshua Decker 10:50:27 PM
False is a national treasure
KFAI 10:50:45 PM
Matt, we'll get to that request.
KFAI 10:51:03 PM
Decker, yes they are!
Matthew Gurrola 10:51:19 PM
False should play at TRVE brewing.
KFAI 10:51:49 PM
Joshua Decker 10:52:02 PM
False should play in my attic beadroom every night before bed
Matthew Gurrola 10:52:46 PM
Or the State Fair just to see people's reactions.
KFAI 10:52:51 PM
Matthew Gurrola 10:54:31 PM
We seriously need local metal represented at the fair.
Joshua Decker 10:54:35 PM
Probably a lot of life altering experiences would take place if that happened, I have one every time I see them
Joshua Decker 10:55:43 PM
Legit, transcendental,out of body type shit
Bill Hansen 11:06:57 PM
Im over here now...
KFAI 11:07:40 PM
We fired bill
Bill Hansen 11:07:43 PM
Or rednecks would throw corncobs at them.
Bill Hansen 11:07:53 PM
More like demoted
KFAI 11:09:09 PM
we tried to do a live show at the state fair, KFAI has a booth, but we were too slow
Joshua Decker 11:09:57 PM
Bill Hansen 11:10:28 PM
Gonna pounce on that opportunity next year if it comes about
Joshua Decker 11:11:01 PM
Matthew Gurrola 11:11:19 PM
Did Riffeous just overthrow his Sith Lord master?
KFAI 11:11:47 PM
Yes now I need a new apprentice
KFAI 11:11:58 PM
The Rule of Two
Bill Hansen 11:12:44 PM
My powers are diminished yet my evil persists
Joshua Decker 11:28:42 PM
Did the Ulkum get a re-release I wasnt aware of? More importantly, is there a cassette version?
Joshua Decker 11:30:42 PM
I'm kind of amazed that's your #1. That album just left me.... underwhelmed
Bill Hansen 11:32:39 PM
Sorry but it exceeded my expectations
Allan Towne 11:32:43 PM
Now I'm not afraid to say Im not a False fan
KFAI 11:32:55 PM

Joshua Decker 11:33:03 PM
LOL I love music and you guys for this reason, specifically
Joshua Decker 11:33:49 PM
New Blood Incantation is a great album, don't get it twisted, I just didn't feel like it was some of the best of the scrap heap.
Bill Hansen 11:33:53 PM
Josh come to Part Wolf tomorrow night and see if they have cassettes
Joshua Decker 11:34:45 PM

Bill Hansen 11:37:29 PM
Im looking forward to the Coagulate demo
Allan Towne 11:37:43 PM

Joshua Decker 11:38:05 PM
I hope it's better than when they played that Eagles show, did not really care for that
Joshua Decker 11:38:32 PM
Stoked to check new Echoes Of The Fallen, personally. Is that still happening?
Joshua Decker 11:39:41 PM

KFAI 11:40:26 PM
Bill Hansen 11:42:21 PM
