- Work is underway on a master of the live TEN SUICIDES recording from last June, at Reckless Records, the weekend of Eyehategod's two night stand at The Empty Bottle. We are moving forward with an LP and there is even discussion of a few shows this summer, with some sort of interesting personnel configuration, pending a bit of tricky scheduling... Don't forget that TEN SUICIDES T-shirts are available via the BloodShop!

- Mail-order is up-to-date. My apologies for the slight delay in shipping things last week.

- Redrot LP master is at the plant and we are now awaiting test pressings.

- After a quick burrito and a very solid The Fortieth Day practice last night, Isidro and I ran over to Pancho's to see A Storm of Light and Tombs, both of which bands were excellent.  I have been keeping ASoL in heavy rotation for the last couple of years and I have managed to miss them live until now.  It was great to see them play, and to see the well-chosen video projected over them.  Dark and brooding apocalyptic stuff, indeed.  Tombs were totally blistering... every bit deserving of all the praise that I read about them.  It was a great way to end the weekend or start the week, especially with so many friends out last night.

- Anatomy of Habit will be working on recent/new material tonight, looking ahead to our 7/16 show with Cages, along with parts of a brand new composition - if we can remember what we started...

- Well, the blog is still being super-buggy, especially when images are posted, as below, with the new BloodShop! additions.  It is pushing earlier posts into the archive, for some reason

- I am catching up with mail-order from the last week and everything will be up-to-date and in tomorrow's mail

- While I was sorry to have missed Sword Heaven and Sickness last night, I was able to see Buried at Sea for the first time in at least five years or so, and dear god, they did not disappoint.  Within moments of the "creaking ship lost at sea" sounds starting, the band totally erupted, and like just like the old days, it was microphones in the mouth and full-on fury. EXCELLENT!  If you like your doom heavy and brutal, and you skipped this show... well... Nachtmystium were a blast, as well, and the new bass player from Rwake seemed to fit in really well.  They played a powerful set.  And Orange Goblin capped off the night with a set of hard-and-heavy crowd-pleaser stoner/doom anthems.  It was great to see them again after five years, too.  It was a great show, overall, and it was cool to hang out with so many friends there.  The party continued across the street at The Flat Iron, so thanks to the Indian guys for the amusing night/morning!
