Top albums of 2008 [Jan. 1st, 2009|05:04 am]
andrew rotten
[music |Iced Earth - Dante's Inferno]

Welcome to 2009! Now that 08 is over, let's list my overdue albums of LAST year. This will be determined by the number of plays from the ipod.



15. Scar Symmetry - Holographic Universe
With Christian being replaced by TWO vocalists, lets hope they can keep the momentum.



14. Abigail Williams - In the Shadow of a Thousand Suns.
Definite surpriser and much better then the EP. It also helps that Trym from Emperor plays drums on most of this.



13. Toxic Holocaust - An Overdose of Death



12. Moonspell - Night Eternal



11. Origin - Antithesis



10. Ihsahn -Angl



9. Testament - Formation of Damnation
Took long enough. And unlike Chinese Democracy, it was not only worth the wait but was better then I expected.



8. Brain Drill - Apocalyptic Feasting



7. Amon Amarth - Twilight of the Thunder God



6. Cradle of Filth - Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder
Their best since Damnation and a Day.



5. Cavalera Conspiracy - Inflikted



4. Dismember - S/T



3. Death Angel - Killing Season



2. Grave - Dominion VIII



1. Unleashed - Hammer Battalion


Hopes for 2009

New Nevermore?

Kreator - Hordes of Chaos

Cannibal Corpse!!

Iced Earth and Into Eternity 10/15/08 [Oct. 16th, 2008|04:32 pm]

[music |Boston Red Sox vs Tampa Bay Rays Game 5]

Even though my birthday was Saturday, last night would be what I considered to be part one of my 'celebration'. And what better then seeing one of my favorite bands with their rightful singer back where he belongs?

Palladium was pretty packed for it being a Wednesday night in October. I recall seeing Cannibal Corpse on a Monday night and only like 150 at most being there.

Tim Roth wasn't on their tour, because according to Stu during their set, he was having a baby. "No, his wife isn't pregnant. He's going to be giving birth through his dick!" They had this kid from a band I've never heard of called Blessed By a Broken Heart fillinf in and he surprisingly did a good job. Last time I saw them last march, their sound was so terrible you couldn't even hear the snare drum at all, just the hi-hat and bass drums until their second to last song. Stu did a good job filling in for Tim's vocal harmonies as well. Was tempted to buy their Fuck Cancer t-shirt but I'm going to be seeing Dimmu Borgir and Moonspell Friday, so I settled on just an Iced Earth one. They did my favorite song Splintered Visions this time, so that is always a plus. :-)

Iced Earth hit the stage around 10 and simply destroyed. Destroyed my hearing that is. I wasn't even on the floor in front and my ears are ringing worse then after a Manowar show. My only true complaints really are that Burnt Offerings got shafted and that Barlow's voice could've been higher in the mix. They did I believe were 18 songs for a 90 minute set.

Not surprisingly Something Wicked This Way Comes got the most attention with 5 songs. They did a few of the Ripper songs, which happened to be the few from that brief era that I liked :-).

WWE Raw/Smackdown/ECW Supershow - July 19, 2008 [Jul. 21st, 2008|01:31 pm]

[music |Morishima/Shiozaki/Marufuji vs No Remorse Corps - ROH Southern Navigation dvd]

WWE came back to Springfield, this time on a Saturday night instead of a Sunday afternoon for a house show the night before The Great American Bash. Instead of going alone, I managed to get my co-worker Dan to come, even though he only knew of a handful of the guys who were advertised.

After finding our seats (which had a better view then we expected) and buying some overpriced beer and a Triple H t-shirt, we were told right off the bat by Tony Chimmel that John Cena couldn't make it, so the main event was changed to CM Punk vs Batista for the World Heavyweight Title instead of the original one consisting of Cena and Batista vs JBL and Big Show, with us 'choosing the stipulation', only one of which I can remember which was NO DQ. Most of the matches were 'previews' of last night's ppv.

For $22, I'd say it was worth it. One of the better house shows I've been to in the last few years and I managed to tell Mike Knox that he looked like an Orangutan during his match.

The card (to the best of my knowledge):

1. Evan Bourne vs Mike Knox
Evan got a bigger reaction then I expected, which was nice. Nothing eventful but I got to see Sydal in person. Can't complain.
Winner: Evan Bourne with the Shooting Star Press. Wasn't that move supposedly banned?

2. 4-Way Tag Match from GAB for the WWE Tag Team Titles
Winners: Miz and Boob Man. Finlay laid out Jesse and Fetus with the shilelagh afterwards.

3. Bikini contest with Kelly Kelly, Layla, Lena (?), Jillian, Natalya and Maryse
I got myself another beer during this but I remember screaming that Jillian was the greatest singer ever but apparently no one agreed with me because she got Jumped by Natalya and it ended with a "cat fight! Cat Fight!" into the back.

4. Mark Henry vs Tommy Dreamer for the ECW title.
Mark Henry and Tony Atlas wouldn't shut up and we got to listen to Mizzark and Dreamer call each other fat for what seemed like 10 minutes and Dreamer tell us that Springfield was more hardcore then the current champ. Rather boring match to be honest with Henry getting the win. I kept yelling at Mark Henry that he better not bring the ring and asked him if he wanted another cheeseburger.
Winner: Mark Henry with the fat splash.

5. Khali and Umaga vs Big Show and Triple H.
Khali is fucking HUGE in person, making Trips look small in comparison. Entertaining match surprisingly, ending with Trips hitting the pedigree on Khali. Show told Trips that he wants a title shot afterwards.
Winners: Triple H and Big Show.

Intermission. I missed part of the next match while waiting in line for another beer and a pizza.

6. Kofi Kingston vs Paul Burchill for the IC Title.
Crowd was a bit quiet for this one. I think Sydal got a bigger pop then Kofi tbh. Crowd was a bit too silent for Burchill though :-(. Pretty good match with Kofi winning. The 10 year old girls in front of me were screaming like my sister at a New Kids on the Block concert.

7. MVP and Shelton Benjamin vs The Hardys.
Match of the night easily. MVP and Shelton played tug of war with Matt's shirt before the bell and threw it into the crowd, with Matt and Jeff doing the same to MVP's but the guy who caught it threw it back, so it got thrown to the other side and the same happened. Third time was a charm though.

8. CM Punk vs Batista for the World Heavyweight Title. No DQ.
This one managed to last 15 minutes, though apart from a few chair shots and such, it didn't feel like a No DQ. Finish came with Punk getting the clean pin with the GTS when Batista tried going for the Batista Bomb.
An angry Batista told Punk he wouldn't get lucky the next night and gave him a Batista Bomb. Aside from Triple H, that got the biggest pop, but I think that had more to do with everybody being shocked by him being there.

To say my Fourth of July was uneventful would be an understatement, with the most eventful thing being my trip to Subway for dinner. Here's my favorite albums for anybody interested.

1. Death - Human. Death's best album, hands down.
2. Behemoth - Satanica
3. Dissection - Storm of the Light's Bane.
4. Sanctuary - Into the Mirror Black
5. Nevermore - Politics of Ecstasy
6. Death - Symbolic
7. Queensryche - Rage For Order
8. Dimmu Borgir - Enthrone Darkness Triumphant
9. Iron Maiden - Powerslave
10. Candlemass - Nightfall

Honorable Mentions:
Death - Spiritual Healing. Can you tell Death is my favorite band?
Arch Enemy - Burning Bridges
Black Sabbath - Sabotage. Paranoid is about as overrated as British Steel.

Yours?

As happy as I am the Celtics have finally won their 17th championship, I look o so forward to ticketing all of our NBA champions t-shirts tonight. Too bad I had to miss the damn game because of work :-(.

Before I forget...


FUCK YOU KOBE! :-p


New Judas Priest = turbo 2008 except songs about Turbo Lovers and not needing any Parental Guidance are replaced with "I Am Nostradamus." Least it's nowhere near as bad as Point of Entry.

LONDON (Reuters) - It is the one moment every man wants to get right -- and which London floor-fitter Lefkos Hajji could hardly have got more wrong.

ADVERTISEMENT


The luckless 28 year-old's dreams of giving his sweetheart, Leanne, 26, the ultimate proposal have literally vanished into thin air.

Hajji, of Hackney, east London, had concealed a $12,000 engagement ring inside a helium balloon. The idea was that she would pop the balloon as he popped the question.

But as he left the shop, a gust of wind pulled the balloon from his hand and he watched the ring -- and quite possibly the affections of his girlfriend -- sailing away over the rooftops.

"I couldn't believe it," he told The Sun newspaper.

"I just watched as it went further and further into the air.

"I felt like such a plonker. It cost a fortune and I knew my girlfriend would kill me."

Hajji spent two hours in his car trying to chase and find the balloon, without success.

"I thought I would give Leanne a pin so I could literally pop the question," he said.

"But I had to tell her the story -- she went absolutely mad. Now she is refusing to speak to me until I get her a new ring."

He is hoping the ring will still turn up.

"It would be amazing if someone found it," he added.

Lately I've been wanting to get some more ink done, but have been short on ideas. Until 3 days ago that is.



Hopefully I'll be able to get this little guy done within the next month. :-)
