The American Caliban
I just finished reading Lords of Chaos: The Bloody Rise of the Satanic Metal Underground, which is a really fine book. Norwegian Black Metal is quite a story, including arson, murder, Nazism, very confused teenagers, more murder, more Nazism, and a whole hell of a lot of high-pitched singing and grinding guitars. My favorite band so far is Abruptum, who are led by a dwarf who considers himself so evil that he can have no human name, and is therefore called “It”.

The kids across the street are having a party and their “band” is playing. So far they have played the intro to just about every song with a cool intro, including:

  • Seven Nation Army
  • Crazy Train
  • Pipeline
  • Smoke on the Water
  • Sweet Home Alabama
  • Sweet Child of Mine


They’re nice kids with basically good taste, but they should learn a whole song some day.

according to the website (http://www.fmp666.com/abruptum/abruptum.html)

"It" provides, "cries, screams, violin, drums, torture." while his bandmate, "evil" brings to the mesh, "guitars, sounds, piano, darkness."

"what do you do?"
"i play The Sounds."

wonder if i can find any of it on soulseek. they describe their first full album as, "a kind of a "Veni, Vidi, Vici" thing which really messed up peoples heads." does that mean they sound like the hives?

oh god, i think those kids should get together and play a show with the kids on my block, or even form some sort of supergroup, since they seem to know the same songs. luckily, i also get some foo fighters every now and then.

their drummer is what really ruins it for me--he can't seem to keep himself away from the cymbal, so every beat sounds like CYMBAL-CYMBAL-CYMBAL-CYMBAL-CYMBAL-CYMBAL-kickdrum-CYMBAL-CYMBAL-CYMBAL-CYMBAL-CYMBAL-CYMBAL.

A long time ago, when I saw Mary's Danish (hey, they were opening for the Dead Milkmen) between songs one of the MD guitarists would do exactly that...just play cool intros to famous songs. Repeatedly. Annoyingly.

That fucking book

I was at Guitar Center one day, and I saw a book full of intros to songs — just intros. I'm surprised it wasn't called "How to Annoy the Fuck Out of People".
