21:15 - Lit. Don't even know what this auto-rip is that everyone's spewing about. I've yet to have an issue with buying CDs off Amazon.
19:59 - Ceddybu pretty much agree with J-swizzle about amazon, ain't had problems with them and theres some good deals
19:50 - Cynic Metalhead Ebay are retarded. i once ordered Razor and they delivered defect one. i though gotta new one but that annoyed me like anything,
19:44 - Redn1ght Just a little annoyance to me Jaeryd, nothing much else. :p
19:15 - Jaeryd17 But I don't see how auto-rip is a problem, since it's not required that you use those files at all. Basically it's just a nice extra that doesn't cause any problems, so I'm not sure how that's a bad thing.
19:11 - Jaeryd17 I've never had a problem with Amazon. And sometimes you can find some really good deals on new CDs that aren't delivered by Amazon themselves, so you don't get the auto-rip anyway.
On their first ever North American tour, New Zealand brutal death metal band Ulcerate's van was broken into in New York and much of their equipment was stolen. However, the band is still planning to continue the rest of their tour.
The band has released the following update on their Facebook page: "We had our van broken into in New York last night at our accom. We've lost all our guitar gear (preamps, effects units), some drum equipment, stage banner and all of Svart Crown's merch was also ripped off. We're going to keep going but this is a fucking terrible start. We had phenomenal shows in Philadelphia and NYC last night so this is an absolute kick in the fucking teeth."
