11:54 - Overrwatcher I had to leave Knotfest after Trivium due to dehydration issues ($5 water when I'm broke), Carnifex was so fucking good. Got autographs and a busted nose. 100% worth.
11:52 - !J.O.O.E.! Everyone should stop arguing and listen to Crimson [link]
11:50 - Overrwatcher I oversimplified it quite a bit, my bad on that. Marcel is right, Opeth has growls but no other DM characteristics. DM-influenced? Definitely. Actually DM? Definitely not.
11:47 - Overrwatcher My god, people are STILL arguing about my late night Opeth post? To clarify, I meant that the average person will go "wow, death metal can be good", regardless of whether or not Opeth is DM.
10:24 - Joe Zombie Let's play a game. I'll post a track and you have to tell me if its Opeth, or Mumford & Sons.
10:08 - Mr. Strawberry Judas Priest's "Better By You, Better Than Me" is really a weird song (lyrically)
09:42 - Mr. Strawberry I'm not really sure..., but I hope no one will steal my name "Mr. Strawberry" as their band name. My name sounds really cool and smart anyway.
In June last year, guitarist and founding member Laurent Lebec took an indefinite hiatus from Pelican and now the band has announced that they found their new guitarist in Dallas Thomas of the band The Swan Kings for the spot Lebec left vacant.
Dallas Thomas had been filling in for Laurent Lebec at live shows and now officially joins full-time.
Currently, Pelican is focusing on the writing sessions for their new album and follow-up to their last full-length What We All Come To Need and last year's EP Ataraxia/Taraxis. The album's working title is Fecal Cliff or that might also be a stinky joke.
