Okay wow fuck today has to be the most horrible day of my life ever.
I'm 18, and the girlfriend is 17.
I went over to my girlfriends house earlier this afternoon you know, going to hangout for a bit, get laid and my whole life like flips upside down.
There's this really douchebag guy that she used to talk alot with that I hated, and his carwas parked in her driveway when i pulled up, so I'm like, okay... what the fuck?
I don't bother knocking or ringing the doorbell because she always lets me in and I'm good friends with her family, I run up the stairs and slowly creep the door open to surprise her you know like, "hey I'm here!!" but to my own disbelief, her and this #F are making out on her bed.
I was so furious I sprinted to the bed and decked him in the face as hard as I could about three times, words were exchanged as well as a few more fists and my girlfriend seperated us (he's lucky for that) and she told me to wait in her room and that she would explain everything as she walked him out.
I was really outraged two minutes later she comes back and she starts pulling bullshit excuses, telling me he made a move on her and that she swears she didn't want to or anything, we get in an argument and she pushed me and then slapped me, so I punched her in the face.
I really don't know what the hell I was thinking but she started crying, and she yelled at me to get out so I did I stormed off all fucking mad, even more mad for what I just did. I got home and went straight to my room and my mom comes in and she asked me why I've been so quiet(bear in mind i've been home for like 4 1/2 horus now) and I told her what happened, and I started crying.
My mom was really mad at me but really felt bad for me for what had happened, me and this girl dated for two years now...
So my mom wraps her arm around me and says how much she feels for me but how scared she was for me, then she said "You're moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air" I whistled for a cab and when it came near, the license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror. If anything I can say this cab is rare, but I thought 'Now forget it' - 'Yo homes to Bel Air'. I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8, and I yelled to the cabbie 'Yo homes smell ya later' I looked at my kingdom, I was finally there, to sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel Air.
Atlanta-based progressive metallers MASTODON have set "Crack the Skye" as the title of their new album, due in early 2009 via Reprise Records. The seven-song, 50-minute effort was recorded at Southern Tracks Studios in Atlanta and was produced and mixed by Brendan O'Brien, who has previously worked with VELVET REVOLVER, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, PEARL JAM, AC/DC and STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, among others..
"Crack the Skye" track listing:
04. The Czar
05. Ghost of Karelia
06. Crack The Skye
07. The Last Baron
In a recent interview with MetalSucks, MASTODON bassist/singer Troy Sanders stated about the group's forthcoming album, "I think most of our new material is going to be more under the rock category, but it's pretty epic and involved, extremely layered, broad, melodic, dark, and creepy. When we met up with [producere] Brendan [O'Brien], he had heard some of our demos and he liked some of the rock elements that we had with our stuff. We told him that we were interested in recording, quote, 'a classic rock record that will hopefully have a long shelf life and have solid songs from start to finish, and that will live a lot longer than just listening to it a few times and shelving it.' Our favorite records of all time that we always constantly revisit in our own collection are by bands like JOURNEY, YES, KING CRIMSON, FRANK ZAPPA, KANSAS, and all the shit that we grew up with and were inspired by and continue to revisit. We kind of wanted to attempt to capture a record like that, [at least] in our eyes and ears. The stars had aligned perfectly because Brendan's a perfect match, a funny dude and a great musician who has an amazing ear. He can pick out little things that we can try to do that we hadn't even thought of before, whether it be vocally or sonically with the guitars or something. So it is going to be more of a rock kind of Count Chocula-meets-DEEP PURPLE thing. That's kind of what we're saying."
Not so psyched by these titles, but I can't fucking wait for this record nonetheless.
These were promos a while ago... does anyone have one they're willing to sell/know where to get one?
Fast-rising Yorkshire thrashers EVILE began the process of recording their debut album with producer Flemming Rasmussen at their Huddersfield rehearsal space over the past weekend. Under the watchful guidance of the famed METALLICA producer, the final 10 songs selected for the debut were intensively discussed, arranged and rehearsed. Some brand new tracks were aired, namely "Man against Machine" and "Burned Alive" among others. The full track listing will be announced shortly.
Guitarist Ol Drake had this to say about working with the great producer: "It was an amazing experience to meet such an important guy who played a huge part in the history and evolution of metal. Not only is he an awesome and down-to-earth guy, he really fucking knows what he's talking about. We all already have a great feeling about how the debut's going to turn out with his input alone!"
After Sunday's successful pre-production session the band headed down to London to play a live instore at Tottenham Court Road's Fopp The band thrashed through a tight set of material to great response, and Flemming had the chance to see what the band can do live and further gain a feel for the music due to be recorded in May.
The album is to be recorded at Rasmussen's Sweet Silence Studios in Copenhagen during May-June, and is due for release on Earache on August 27.
