drawing taking from the Gaping Void

Kyle and Walt, two of my cohorts from Purevolume, have started their own blog, dedicated to hardcore of the screamy, jazzy, chaotic variety.

Believes in Patterns

They have begun with a massive post for the Ampere & Daitro tour, so if you need anything by either of these two incredible bands, please head over and say hello. The idea is similar to Zen, so any regular readers should enjoy their rants and raves.

As for the Ampere / Daitro tour...

First off, the show was free. That is always nice. I played some Skee Ball by myself ( I went to the show by myself, cuz I have no friends that like this kind of music ) learned how to get 100's at a fairly consistent rate, drank a few Stellas and ran iinto a friend I havent seen in almost 10 years! He was at the show by himself as well, so we caught up on old times. We went to school together in Vermont, and he incidentally grew up a town next to me in southern NY. (We grew up about 45 minutes from Manhatten) Needless to say, it was great running into him, and I now actually have a friend to go see shows with. Not to mention the fact that we both still love hardcore and punk as much as we did a decade ago.

Daitro ruled, they only played four songs, but they all sounded amazing. Included was the title track from their second album, and their song from the Ampere split, La Substance et la Materie. Amazing. I didnt know the other two songs as well, but they killed too..

Ampere was quite a site. They play so goddamn fast, it is almost unbelievable. Live, it almost becomes a slurry of sonic defecation, but you can pick out the tunes easy enough. They are just so shredding though. I am suprised more people werent going completely apeshit. Living up to their legacy, they played for about 15 minutes... any more and there would have been multiple coronaries. They closed with DRI's Money Stinks from the Ampere/Das Oath split and then everyone really did go apeshit, including me. It was good times.

I bought some merch:

Ampere/ Ringers split 6"
Daitro US Tour 7"
Ampere shirt, black.

yes, i'm a fucking tool

I wanted the Funeral Diner/Ampere split, but had one coming in the mail, which i received on saturday, so it worked out well...

I also just recently received the Cease Upon The Capitol EP and the LP and am still waiting for the Kidcrash LP, Jokes...

Then its time for a break. I am going to Seattle in three weeks, so I need to save some dough for whatever stuff I get into out there... oh and bills too... but I am not sure if I am gonna pay those yet. ^_~

I will post up the CUTC EP and the Kidcrash LP...

I am also gonna rip the Ampere and Daitro stuff I got at the show, but I will drop those on Believes in Patterns , so keep checking back there...

Hope everyone is well!

yes... indeed. I will redo those when I get some free time. I'll have my parents visiting for a month so I will be sort of busy with all the tourist activities since they are coming from Brazil. It should be fun...

I already managed to find the Ampere / Funeral Diner split through Google . Gotta warn you beforehand though, it's completely clear that Funeral Diner won this split. I saw them play their song a year and a half ago live, and I've been waiting since then for it. It's a beaut and worth every moment I waited.

i just got that split, and the artwork is incredible... Funeral Diner definitely wins the split. but i have to say, while the song is immense, they released it on a 3" tour cd last year, so its not even a new song... bummer. and supposedly they are breaking up now...
