And so it continues...

Hey friends,

I haven't been very productive for the past few weeks, but a slight case of writers block and enough guitar playing to kill a dinosaur later and I'm pumpin out the jams again.

This record is like the genetically altered shark that ate Samuel L Jackson in Deep Blue Sea.

Here's the current score:

41 riffs:2.5 songs:7.5 minutes of music.

The record is winning.

Just in case you were wondering, here is a list of the cds that we have been jamming/have inevitably been influencing the writing of this record (check all these records out. They'll cure even the strongest deathcore addiction):

1. Meshuggah - Destroy Erase Improve
2. Daughters - Hell Songs
3. The Locust - New Erections
4. Converge - No More Heroes
5. Young Widows - Old Wounds
6. Goatwhore - A Haunting Curse
7. Nasum - Shift
8. Pig Destroyer - Terrifyer
9. The Deftones - White Pony
10. Cynic - Traced In Air
11. Neurosis and Jarboe - S/T
12. Astronautilis - Pomegranate
13. The Paper Chase - Now You Are One Of Us
14. Killing The Dream - Fractures
15. Ed Gein - Judas Goats and Diesel Eaters

Those are currently the top 15 anyway. Check them out. They're better than any ultra br00t4l brakedownz you could ever throw down too...

Summer Tour/Album Update...

Syrens will be on tour w/ Love Begotten this June. It's gonna rule. We're totally expecting this tour to turn into a battle of stage presence since both bands seem to be fairly well known for our live shows...at least one person is going to break something...

The fun doesn't end there...

Almost immediately after we get home from that tour I will be making the trek up to Ft Smith, Arkansas to fill in for our dudes in the Handshake Murders on their July tour. Syrens will be joining us for a fairly substantial chunk of the tour so come out and watch me turn into a sweaty, incoherent mess as I play two intense metal sets back to back. Hopefully I'll lose 10 pounds and my nasty, globular, fat gut this summer.

As for the album update:
We met again for practice last night and decided we liked some things and disliked some others so here's the current score:

31 riffs:2 songs:6 minutes of music

Good stuff. I'm start some ideas for a new song today.

More to come soon.

Thanks for sticking with us.

A month of no touring...

Is starting to drive me insane. I have way more down time than I really need, but it's leading to great things. The full length is going to be out of control good.

49 riffs: 4 songs: 11 minutes of music


p.s. - everyone be happy...Chi from the Deftones is out of his coma!
