Isis - Dulcinea

Hey check this out. It is the new song from the upcoming ISIS album entitled In The Absence of Truth. I am really looking forward for this. Oh, and these guys are much better than most pretentious post-rock wanker... at least these guys know how to fucking rock. But what's up with the artwork?

Self Made Grind

SMG have posted two new songs from the upcoming split 7" with Sloth. Go here and let them know what you think of it. I think it is killer. These guys have line up tons of new releases in the near future. Get and collect them all before it all went to ebay and sold for unreasonable price.

Relapse Signs Death Breath

Read the official news here. This will be the only Relapse release that I will check out in a very long time.

Slayer In Singapore - For Real

Alright, it is confirmed, Slayer will be thrashing Singapore on the 13th October this year (that’s Friday the 13th in case you are wondering). Let’s not cry that the Singaporean always get the good bands to rock their sock off while we have to endure a lot of wash-up rock acts of yesteryear who couldn’t rock to save their own life (read: INXS). Go here for the grand announcement. Will I be going? Heh…

Converge New Album

Converge has revealed the track listing and the artwork for the upcoming No Heroes album that will be released in October this year. More info here.

As far as modern hardcore goes, Converge is the only band that matters to me. I regard Jane Doe as one of the modern hardcore classic and won’t complain much if they kept on doing the same thing along the line of Jane Doe or You Fail Me. I know they are huge with all the fashioncore scenesters but I don’t make that as an excuse for me to overlook them or dismiss them as one of the bands that matter in recent time. If you don't like Converge, you can always listen to some shitty metalcore like As I Lay Dying, but don't blame me if people pity you for having a bad taste in music.

We're No Here

I was in Singapore for a few days. The reasons? MOGWAI.

Yes I was watching MOGWAI live at the Esplanade. To those who are wondering how it was. It was fucking awesome. Definitely one of the best show I had watched in my entire existence. I don’t need to explain it in detail; you just had to be there to experience it yourself. Oh, if there is one thing I want to tell you; I don’t need to watch any shitty post-rock bands anymore. Yup, that’s right and I am pointing my finger at every dime a dozen post-rock bands who are going through the motion and don’t know shit about rocking out. You are pretentious and your “art” are only suitable for pretentious asshole.

MOGWAI rule.

Your post-rock band sucks.

Just die.

P/s: While I was in Singapore I heard rumors that SLAYER will be playing a show over there in the not too distant future. If this is true than we are in for a treat. Fucking SLAYER man. It is about time that people over here got the chance to experience one of the best metal bands in the history of rock and roll. I will keep an eye for any update on this.
