******* Vikings ruined what I was hoping to be a close game and my boy is refusing to play Slayer on his tablet.

Spear EP I was on is getting a vinyl rerelease.

Edit: actually it's already out

More edit: crap, I don't think they take PayPal. I can't even message the SoL FB page because for some reason I'm an admin of it. Now have to try and get in touch with Glen for the first time in years.

I read that it was due to changes at his full time job. Goes to show how unrealistic a career in rock and roll is if even someone like Sodom can't make a minimum living wage.
It says that plus some other reasons. Wonder if health or Angelripper.

The commentary from Sodom was that they regretted ‘his’ decision. Must be personal circumstances/reasons I’d think. Not the worst thing to happen to the band I’d suggest. He seemed a little ‘off’ at times in the videos I saw.

Listening to the second Moonspell album. One of those bands I don't get. Was about to turn it off but it just went into a Rotting Christ type passage - probably go back to boring goth sounding metal shortly.

Geez the actor who played Varg was ******* terrible. Otherwise an enjoyable film I guess.

I liked the whole new Lineup. Because they were off at times. In the Sign of Evil Songs don't work with perfect play.

First day back at work. 7am alarm. Got up at 9.50am.
Started back this week too and got greeted with a truck load of overtime. Now it feels like I never left for a Christmas break.
Started a week ago. Black Metal Fridays formalised as standard Company practice for 2020.

Angelripper is a control freak. That's the only reason for the revolving door of musicians over the years.
Not that there's anything massively wrong with that, some of my favourites are.
Yeah. I'd imagine he lives off Sodom and everyone else gets a wage of sorts. Probably fun at first but after a while the return for the time investment probably isn't equitable. Have to check songwriting credits but it wouldn't shock if he limited creative input solely to protect royalty streams. No problem with it either as it is his band and one of my favourite bands too.

Financially but I think creatively too. If you watch the Lords of Depravity DVD you'd notice a bunch of guys get fired after a couple of albums and weren't really sure why. I think he likes to keep it fresh with each album, a bit like Chuck and Death.
I was glad when that drummer Bobby got the boot though, he was a dick when I met them drinking at the German bar in Sydney on that Australian tour haha.

Band members Dee has met that were total knobs in real life: Mustaine (arrogant w***er); Kerry King (obnoxious tool of the absolute highest order).

Band members Dee met who were incredibly genuine and cool: Lizzy Borden (amazingly nice); Jacoby Shaddix (super friendly even borrowed my mate’s hat to wear onstage); Rob Dukes & Tom Hunting.

Band members Dee met who had no fu**en idea what their name was: Ozzy (mentally incompetent would be too kind). Weekend at Bernie’s levels of human movement and coherence. God Bless him.
