I am friends with the bassist, the vocalist and the drummer of the band via Facebook.com (ROFL "I'm their best friend, online!)-- has anyone heard their stuff? I own their CD Apocalypse In Retrospect and they're one of the bands signed by my buddy Jeff Swanson. I did a write up of their CD too on VampireFreaks.com -- this one isn't as long as the ones I did for Ultimatum, Black Sabbath, Saviour Machine, Tourniquet, and Fashion Bomb./facepalm
Wolf in the band is a friend of mine (Wolf plays bass for Bloodstream Parade.) I should have Issue 11 done by then and will see of Davidson would be game to help me getting this going. You have pull with NoLifeTilMetal.com./double facepalm
I am recently friends with Val of Fashion Bomb so I am trying to get him a copy of DAGON's CD (I have an extra copy of Terraphobic.) They're playing in April at Reggie's Rock Room and in Crest Hell, Illinois (Crest Hill) this month -- but I am going to catch them at Reggie's in April. One of the members of Dagon actually lives in Chicago, so the promotion of that show should be a little easier to do than promoting Withering Soul and Neutral Red./wristcut
My own book, An Eye In Shadows, also explores inner hells of people's minds too. I wrote this one at a period of my life when my publishers were getting crucified for running my work. I did this to take the heat off themAwe after all this time of never mentioning it before, Nicky finally explains the real reason he wrote it was to help others and not himself. Good thing he did it when he did otherwise those publisher's s reputations might suffer and some might have even gone out of business if yo had---OH...oops! Nevermind. :)
I am in correspondence with Matt (Retroactive Records) and Dave (Bombworks Records.) Getting the details together for this one will be the hard part and right now I am in correspondence with some models for the second local edition of my magazine. The promoter side of things is part time, I am still relatively new as a promoter but I want to do a show which knocks around the other promoters (the ones that do industrial electro type.)head+desk
First time I heard a track of theirs has to be when Ultimatum did the song Locked In Chains on the Bombworks Records sampler. I picked up Dagon and My Silent Wake from that sampler. I paid attention to Dagon right away because they were named for an H.P. Lovecraft short story. I have about four of the bands on that sampler too -- the CD came with Ultimatum's label mate Grave Robber (my friend Skot Shaw is in the band Leper, I helped Grave Robber haul their gear in.)Here's where it gets bad. After pictures were posted depicting Nicky as a flaming homosexual, he sort of has that look where someone at a party next to him asked him if he was the one that farted and as time goes on, he's not sure the other guests believe that he is not the source of the stink.
So from this point, it's all about "Oh I just happen to deal with models and have hotel parties with them" because as we all know, no gay man would ever do those things.
DOKKEN -- the one with the naked lady ripping the wings off her back (shut up, got to have something for the ladies, right? I can't blast something really heavy for them at hotel parties.)"them" who?

Thank goodness we were starting to worry the new guy was gay and the one that farted. Sadly, were he in a hotel room with women, blasting music is exactly what he'd do and little else. He'd pace in a corner and yell at fire until the time came for his token "convention pass out" and EMTs arrived to take him out of the harem.
For the record: The people and the mods on that site all seem very cool. I found myself lurking on one section of the site reading everything from Carly Simon revealing more info about the identity of the man/men in the song "Your So Vain" to Food Network being pulled from some cable stations. It appears to me to be a cool board with cool people, even the mods!
Which is why Nicky being there is a shame. :(
