Why do drummers have lots of kids?

They’re not too good at the Rhythm Method.

Drummers always get a bum rap. Why is that? Ever seen a good band with a shitty drummer? No. Know why? BECAUSE THEY DON’T FUCKING EXIST.

Drummers rule! We hit stuff, get peoples’ butts shaking, and ultimately determine whether or not the band is going to perform well. You CANNOT have a solid band without a solid drummer, so all you 6-string wankers out there with your tapping and flooded solos can suck it… This one is for the hitters. 

Today, I bring you our own occasional contributor and Shai Hulud hitter (you’re welcome) Matt Covey, a great friend and total pro behind the kit.

Review of FALL CITY FALL’s Victus album; Dropping 1/22/13 on Victory Records

Fall City Fall – Victus (Victory Records)

The first full-length album from Calgary-based Fall City Fall, Victus, is billed by Victory Records as a truly boundary-pushing hardcore record.

But by the time the second tune, “Dissentipede,” gets going, it’s clear there is a bigger plan at work in FCF’s writing. In the first couple minutes, they slickly pull off a plot that feels distinctly like the layered reveal of a “monster next door” villain in a murder mystery…and you’ve realized just a little too late.
