    What big break was that ?

    I've heard embodiment 12.14 described as christian metal core with keyboards , that does not sound good in my book .

    Pimp , what is with the I's ?

    That was an exaggeration on my's part, but I's did get them their first gig at the RockApe and helped line up most of the gigs for the first 6 months after, as well as billing them with some named bands that helped get them the attention of the interstate bands and promoters. But it was there own talent that really lent them to the fore and the willingness to play as many gigs as possible in those first few months of gigging that really gave them a good reputation for doing things.

    As for the whole "I's" thing, it is both a payout on my's self -with my's lisp and all- and a tribute to the only decent real pimp I's ever knew, who also spoke by saying "I's" and "my's". But he was a good bloke who really looked after his ladies, never took anything from them, got them help & treatment if they ever got into drugs and made sure no one ever did anything to the ladies that they didn't want to do. He also gave them all the money they made, so he was more of a "carer" than an actual "pimp", he just made sure that the ladies had a place to work and someone watching over them, which is the true beauty of a arrangement like Canberra.
    But I, The Pimp NeonBlack, does not condone the peddling of human flesh, no matter the reasons. But that pimp was most kind to I and I's just like the way he talked.
    That is just a brief explanation, Unkle, and the one I's is sticking with at this time.

    Peace
    The Pimp NeonBlack

    Embodiment 12:14 used to be a Christian death metal band called Embodiment, now they've gone metalcore I believe.

    But do they still preach God in their songs is the main question?
    'Cause if they do, they ain't really gonna last long. They shall be smited badly, despite how hard they may rocketh. (Sorry, but I's been reading The Bible According To Spile Milligan for the last couple of days and it's starting to rub off).

    They're still Christians if that's what you're asking. Whether they 'preach' or not I have no idea, as I've never heard them or seen them play.

    Yes but in between each of them you get Daysend, Dark Order, Forte and Frankenbok, so they're not exactly in a row. :)


    By the way, Cog sound almost exactly like Tool. So much like them, in fact, that it's not even funny. But you get that.

    Really? Cool.

    I'd better start looking for accomodation for my heterosexual male friend and I.

    Virgin Black? Hard to describe... generally speaking they're that gothic doomy sort of style, but the vocalist is amazing - goes from an operatic style to some of the most ferocious screams I've ever heard. They also make good use of keyboards, both as a lead instrument and for atmosphere.

    Virgin Black are one of the best bands in Australia. Excellent atmospheric Goth metal. Not namby pamby shit like Tiamat, more doomy like My Dying Bride.
