Check out my blog, I wrote 5 reviews recently and I'll be more consistent for the rest of the summer. I'll also have a more professional logo soon.

If you want me to review your band, send me a message!

I actually have been lurking there over the past week. Worthwhile content, while I'm not really a fan of reviews written largely in first person (which is mostly due to my own pretences).

The part about Evangelist was surprising. I didn't know doom metal could have such hilarious lyrics. :)

Thanks man, I never really noticed the 1st person thing though. I think I do a good job switching back and forth between musical description and some silly personal comments like in my Memory Driven review.

I just wrote a new review for Cemetery Fog, check it out.

It only stuck out in some reviews, so I guess I was just nitpicking.

Also, I added you to last.fm because I am a friend-seeking whore.

Still no Master Fury review. >_<

Anyway. Really great reviews of the Craven Idol and Vestal Claret releases. Good ones, those two are.

But Autothrall already said everything in his review :(

Don't worry, it's on my review list but I lack the time these days, I reviewed some stuff I really wanted to since a while this week like a 2nd one for Ningen-Isu and Craven Idol. I'll try to write it soon, man!

Glad to see you dig on Owl. One of my favs since their first album was announced. I don't really listen to much of his other work.

Can't wait for that Stone Dagger 7 inch. Also, FWIW Radigan's main band isn't Magic Circle, but The Rival Mob, a Boston hardcore band. Justin DeTore is also a member, and they're both also in Mind Eraser with Chris Corry.

Oh, I guess that's right maybe I should have said main metal band :) I'm just discovering his other projects as I'm not a big fan of hardcore. Thanks for the clarification.

Didn't even read your review (still haven't, but I'll get to it eventually, promise!) but when I saw "Psychedelic Heavy Metal" and "1986" and knew I needed the Jesters of Destiny album. The CD was sold out but luckily the album was re-released on vinyl recently so I treated myself to a limited transparent purple vinyl version with patch and badge. Expensive as hell but you only live once, right?
