Why what does he say?
He's got two stories coming from when Slayer supported Venom in about 83. I can't remember the full details but both revolve around Slayer thinking they were hot shit and Venom bringing them down a peg or two. One of them was a bit puerile, something about pissing in their drinks if I remember correctly, but the main gist of it all was bringing Slayer down off their high horses. By the end of the tour everything was amicable but they all joked and did silly things.
Pretty funny. I know even less about Venom than I do Slayer. You know other than what everyone knows about them. Good that it ended on a positive note.
Yeah Venom really divides people, they actually divided themselves too since they spilt and formed Cronos and Venom Inc.
They get credited with kick starting both thrash and black metal at times but beyond the first two albums only diehard fans give a shit, and they lost a lot of those when they started fighting with each other. There is no doubt that the Venom influence is in a lot of today's bands but I don't think I've ever met a Venom fan who knows as much about them as fans of bands like the Big 4 know their chosen band.
I'm not a huge fan of Gus G (actually I don't know much of his work outside what he did for Ozzy), but it's great to see people still able to chat to Jason Becker. And how about the room full of guitars!!
Yeah same here. He seems like a cool guy. Man I'd love to meet Becker. I'd also love to just hold that guitar!
Jason has more inner strength than I could possibly ever achieve.
Fuck! look at all those guitars! Awesome!
Yeah the inspiration in that room is off the scale
Half the Napalm catalogue at the moment seems to be re-releases.
Oh it's out now huh? You can also get this from Amazon.
I reckon it's about time Flotz gave us a new album
When The Storm Comes Down was 31 yesterday, so to be fair they don't need to give us another album today, but I'll be expecting it from tomorrow!
Happy Birthday! The remaster is so much better.
I’ll be expecting it as well!
I was listening to the original the other day and it's weird how the tone and vocals were left on the final recording. It's not that they are terrible but it kind of doesn't feel like it was mastered.
They felt the same way.
I wonder how it got released that way if they weren't happy.
Wait a minute WTSCD was remastered,when?Oh you know what I may actually have it somewhere it was repackaged in friggin’ digipack form right?
Record company off course! They said they thought it was gonna sound like Metallica and were really let down when they heard it.
Yeah the Metal Mind release. It was on gold disc. Really good. They did Drift and Cuatro too.
Edit: I remember them saying Alex Parialas did a really shitty job. His excuse was that he was brand new to digital. Kelly was pissed for years and ended up apologizing a few years ago. I was like why? He did a shit job and if he didn't know how to use digital he shouldn't have done it. Also Alex was a fairly shitty mixer/producer regardless.
