Status - 07-12

As of yesterday, all paid orders (including Discogs packages) are in the mail.

Please note that I will be away this coming Monday through Friday, for work, so while I will attempt to stay on top of all correspondence, I will not be packing up or shipping orders until after I return - late on the 18th.

Thanks,
Mark

The test copy of the Envenomist "Hidden" CD (B!105) arrived, and it looks and sounds great. It will definitely be in the August update, and if possible, I will try to get it to distros ahead of time. David Reed will also have copies for his various August dates. A full announcement will follow soon...

Photos From Saturday

Blake has posted a few photos from the Animal Law show on his Flicker page, here

Buyer's Market on eBay

For those in need, a copy of the Peter Sotos "Buyer's Market" CD is up on eBay, here. Based upon the photograph, it appears to be a legitimate item, not one of the counterfeits that are listed, from time to time.

Fecalove, Corrupted. Envenomist Anticipated

The test copies of the upcoming Fecalove disc arrived over the weekend, and while the package looks amazing - no objection from the pressing plant over the sexual content - there were glitches heard in the recording. I traced it back to a seemingly corrupt .WAV file, which has now been corrected. New tests have been ordered, so hopefully, we will be back in business within a week.

Tests of the Envenomist "Hidden" CD are now on their way to me, and that production run should happen quickly. Greh Holger's re-mastering job really sounds excellent!

Animal Law, Last Night



Thanks to everyone who came out to support us at the early, all ages show at Ronny's, last night. I appreciated talking to so many new people, and getting such good feedback from them. It is nice to see our audience expanding and to look out and see new faces while we are playing. Thanks to Metal Ann and Metal Leslie for their kind words and astute observations... and the bourbon. Thanks to all of the other bands for enduring the switches in the booking schedule, etc. And thanks to Ronny's - and to Vito at MPshows who sorted things out for us.


I was pleased to be able to play with Al-Thawra again, and I thought that they sounded really good - and full - with a live drum kit. Big Knife was tight as hell, and that is not even considering that the have only played a few shows, so far. And, embarrassingly, it has been quite a while since I have seen Plague Bringer live. I have been enjoying the new album, quite a lot, and it was really great to finally see them with two guitars... which just adds to their brutality. Their set was fucking intense... and pretty damned flawless.

I think that things went well for us, overall. I had a lot of trouble hearing myself, so I could not tell if I was singing in-tune, or not, much of the time. The new song - "Hurry, Please" - worked nicely, which I was really happy about. We moved fairly swiftly through our five songs... um... swiftly in Animal Law terms. A few transitions were a bit slow, but no major breakdowns, or anything, and we opted to ditch the long, drawn-out versions of songs for this outing.

Here is our set list:

"Never Alone"
"Above Heaven"
"Grain"
"Hurry, Please"
"Glisten"
