ive seen cephalic like 12 times live... the drummer plays some amazing shit and doesnt even break a sweat. i think ive only seen them once where i didnt smoke with them. and i agree... theyre grindcore that even old folks can enjoy
2 guys in Slipknot once played in Anal Blast. It's true. They kind of have a sketchy line up. The only constant member is Don Decker the singer. Whil they are compleltely offensive lyricly and as a concept they are totaly fun to see live and if you like Grindcore they are actualy pretty good. Just try not to pay attention to the lyrics. Don Decker makes El Duce look like a saint.
Just found out that Anal Blast will be opening for Slayer at some metal fest in Davenport, Iowa.
Since my band has played (reluctantly) the same bill as those guys, that gives me a two degree seperation from playing with Slayer, right?!
you have no idea...
Big Fuckin Skull are cool guys, the rest of'em ... yikes... I will never play the Lab again, and its the easiest gig we could ever play, casue it's only down ONE FLIGHT OF STAIRS!
Don ranks up there as one of the most disgusting people I've ever met, and I didn't even see his practice/living space just down the hall. Our guitarist did, and was horrified.
He does want to pay me to use this image on a shirt.
Yeah, AnalBlast's lyrics would make the Mentors blush. Classic song titles like "Eat you tampons out of my pile of shit" and "suck your shit off my dick". The only thing I can really say is that I don't think they take themselves very seriously.
Dave, I have said no at least 100 times to bands that ask me for that kind of artwork. I find it to be the easiest work to turn down. That stuff is so retarded.
So, I learned something from playing this show.
One: I never knew there was a genre of music called "Porn Death Grindcore"
Two: I discovered I had standards. I was asked to do a T-shirt of this truly fucking twisted violent misogynistic design, and I said, "No".
Both lessons provided by Anal Blast. Wow.
Otherwise, a very fun show!!
Thanks guys. I'll be wearing iron gauntlets on my hands to protect myself.
I was tickled pink when I found out we were going to play with Anal Blast. They eat at the restaurant I work at, and are very death metally/thrash punk, as are the other bands. TENXLBS is going to be the odd ball group at this show.
