As for that rude guy on here I apologise for him as there's just no need to be that rude, and for the rest of you who took it upon themselves to have a go back, then shame on you! Can't you see people who post replies like that are attention seeking stirrers and by you guys being rude back A. makes you as bad as him in the first place and B. you give him the satisfaction he wanted, by giving him the attention. Why can't we just ignore idiots like that, because we know what someone like is?!

Cheers guys, Ash.


agreed. i think ill pass up idiotic comments from now on and stick to the subject no matter how much i want to lay into the guy/gal.


on the bright side, the back and forths kept this guy's thread from sinking to the bottom with the rest of 'em.

great exposure!

point well taken... also...


There are far more constructive ways of doing this! If people really like the music and want to talk about it then thats a much better reason for it being up there rather than a silly argument.

My upmost apologies for not realising the intended use of sarcasm there.

My views are this:
Not my cup of tea. I am too darn old for that kind of music so I will approach it from a musicians point of view. The band is very solid. The drummer has a ton of talent and used some good rudiments on the kicks. The drums fit perfectly into this song. The same with the guitar players and the bassist did a great job supporting the rhythm section and bridging the drums and the guitars. Overall the band was rock solid and in my opinion didn't deserve the negative condescending attitude. If I don't like a certain music style I approach it from a different point of view with a series of questions
Was the drummer keeping the tempo...... Yes
Was the bassist supporting the drummer.... Yes
Were the guitar players listening ............... Yes
Did they give a message........................... Yes
Did they do the song and the message justice Yes
Was the whole band listening to each other ....Yes
Did the whole band serve the song.................Yes
Would I let my kids listen to this song............ Yes
Was it actually musical in nature..................... Yes
was it pleasing to my ears.............................. No

so 9 out of 10 from an oldster such as myself isn't bad. Just isn't my thing. But I am reminded of a band that I loved. Marvin Lee Aday was this fat kid from Texas. He teamed up with a dude named Jim Steinman. They wrote an album together based partly on classical music mixed with rock and roll. They went to every known record company and nobody would listen. Basically they said it sucked and none would buy it. Well they went and produced the record themselves. The album sold well into the millions. By the way Marvin Lee Aday is better known as Meatloaf and that album was Bat Out of Hell. Not everyone heard of Marvin Lee Aday but everyone had heard of Meatloaf.
My point and I do have one is this. Who gives a crap that some didn't like your music. Meatloaf didn't and dammit neither do I. You have a passion to do the music you want to do and so keep your passion going. You have a good solid band there and good muscianship. That is what music is based on. Like Meatloaf belie in yourself and great things will happen. That is what Meatloaf, The Beatles, Kiss and everyone else who was successful in this industry did. Now time to update my myspace page with a band from Ireland.

When I started to drum I was 11 years old. I am 42 now. Now I was taught by my first instructor to always approach music with an open mind. I later developed that philosophy with trying to learn something from every drummer I hear. It maybe something small but I still try to learn something. I also learned at a very young age that just because I don't like the sound or whatever that doesn't mean it is not music to someone else. However to be honest I have a heck of a time applying that to rap lol. But to me all music has a right to exist free from government censorship or labeling. It is up to me as a parent to decide what is acceptable in my home. I was serious when I said I would let my kids listen to it. My oldest son is not into the Grindcore scene and says it all sucks so I let him hear the song over and over again until he could pick out something positive to say. He finally said that the drummer was good and that the guitars had a rather unique sound compared to the rest of "main stream grindcore". I did however catch him listening to it later and remarked about how fast those guitars were going and how long and much practice it took to get to that speed. He is 14 and a drummer/ guitar player and I am happy that he could see it for what it was. Music pleasing to another person that he could learn from. See the impact you made?

Although I doubt that he does, your kid should consider himself lucky. You're pretty freakin alright as far as parents go.

It's always good to hear that they're are other open-minded people out there.

Eliminator, I really liked it. Your drumming is hella tasty, especially near the beginning where you match up with the guitar. I actually like the sound of the whole band, the guitar sounds kick ass, 'specially with the weird things thrown in, and the vocalist is really versatile, not just screaming his ass out until you want to die, he's really changing it up.

You got me sold on this whole noisecore thing! I love it!

I realize this thread is a month and a half old, but I thought it interesting that the star of it (johnnyringo) paid my youtube channel a visit today, this coming something like 3 months after he went after me on this forum for responding to his original unprovoked attack that like much of this, seemed to come out of nowhere. Today he posted 8 troll flames in 1 hour on 3 different videos, apparently obsessed that he thought I was pretending to be Buddy Rich and that I had admirers who were propping me up, or some such nonsense. I erased the first batch because they were just too out there to be considered anything other than what they were, and I felt like he would think better of it later, so it wasn't worth embarassing him. He then came back 5 minutes later with even more psycho trolling. Some people started coming after him on my comments sections, before I just politely asked them to back off, then just erased all of his comments again. He didn't come back a third time. Interestingly enough he had pmd me here a couple of months ago to apologize for his previous bad behavior, then asked me for advice to improve his grip. Ironically one of his troll comments today was that I had unsteady hands.

The lesson here I guess is that some people come on these forums to re create themselves, and although everyone's posts look the same, some of them really aren't. So much of drum forums are personal agenda driven with different perceptions of reality and sometimes even delusion, meaning that the next time he ever shows up here with this little routine he does, it might be a good plan to just pretend that he was never here, while silently wishing him and his little side band the best at whatever they're trying to do.

EDIT 2 HOURS LATER- He just did it twice more on different videos. He's completely lost it.

2nd EDIT 1 HOUR AFTER 1st EDIT. It's now past 1:00 am and he just keeps going. 2 more and counting.
