Tell Me If Im Crazy...

...but did my whole death metal post disappear?

I swear I didnt do it... Obviously it was a problem to someone, so I guess thats that. No metal for you.

2008 lists coming soon.


Ohp!!! This just in... After two years I have crossed the line apparently. From this point onward you will not find high profile death metal albums on ZAFP. There are plenty of other places to find them and I suggest you do that if it is your ultimate desire to live in sin (As I so enjoy)

Peep this, from the Blogger Crew. It seems pretty official.

So, with that said, it is very clear that Friday is no longer a good day for Death Metal. Instead, Fridays will continue with their regular broadcasting of weekend warriors and binge drinking. For those of you not into those two aformentioned recreations, please know that Fridays will continue to be good for staying in and watching movies as well.

What's interesting is that I read your blog through Google Reader, Google's RSS service, and I can still see it. Furthermore, all the mediafire links I've tried are still good. But when I try to go to the actual entry, I get a "page not found" message.

Ahhh, you never know, man. Cannibal Corpse makes a living off their shit, and they are about as high profile death metal as you can get, as with Deicide, so... I wouldn't necessarily assume it was the Arsis disc at all. Either way, that was fast, and a little strange. You'd think with a blog of this nature the band/label would just contact you directly and ask you to remove the stuff. Weird.

i usually stick with things that bands dont mind or stuff thats oop.

Why not start grindcore fridays??? Just a suggestion.
All is well with me and I hope all of you guys are doing swell this end of year. I am just a slow and lazy typer.

I got served the same notice about a year ago for posting a Coldworker record. It does NOT pay to hype a good new band these days.
I'm glad I removed said post though because a year later THAT LAST COLDWORKER SUCKS.

I try not to post anything on Relapse or Touch & Go.
They kill links like mad.

Good luck!
