DO NOT TALK TO THE COPS

WHO ever you are , and WHERE ever you are, say ONLY these 5 words to police if taken into custody -
" I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY"
Remember these five words.
This will save you in many cases.
" I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY"
You can be held for what seems like days and possibly be (physically and mentally) abused by the cops, but DO NOT SPEAK TO THEM other than,
" I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY"
even if they stop at your door and ask questions, DO NOT ANSWER QUESTIONS,
" I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY"
The police have stolen from my personal belongings in the past and I wonder if those items will appear in a future crime scene!

Cost: $10
Doors at 8pm

The Doors Pub
56 Hess St. South,
Hamilton, Ontario
L8P 3N3



The Doors Pub is about the size of your bedroom, or living room, meaning it is tiny, maybe fitting 50 people at the most, and can get pretty hot and sweaty in there.
Thank God it is finally winter and freezing weather, so hopefully it won't be that bad if I attend.

I bought the latest DURVASAG album and dig it. The original singer Mark is back in the lineup, so they rip it up again just like the early days (which was I guess 2 years ago?)
If you like primitive Slayer-ish/Exodus-type thrash metal going towards death metal weirdness, download or buy a CD off them. They might have a new EP or demo out by this gig.

I heard of WILL OF THE ANCIENTS for some years, just never got around to doing more than check out a song or two online.
(Is it my fault I prefer to order the more easily found cassettes and vinyl from distros the last few years?)

Deprecator (USA) (2013) You Broken Warriors





Got this emailed to me awhile ago, and finally gave this the repeated lsitening it deserved !
GOOD-GREAT gritty/crunchy thrash/heavy metal.
The band reminds me a lot of mid-late 1980s bands Metal Church, Metallica, Accept, early Hexx, etc, Maybe not that fast, but solid playing and catchy tunes.
The strained singer is a lot like Slaughter House -"Face Reality"LP(1991), and Blood Feast -"Chopping Block Blues" (1990).

Contact them, all the info they provided is below the track listing.

SPEWGORE CD RELEASE PARTY (Friday Nov. 29th)

SPEWGORE CD RELEASE PARTY with SHOTGUN CURE + BLACKCLOUD SYNDICATE + 1 (Friday Nov. 29th) @ Sneaky Dee's 

431 College Street West,  
Toronto, Ontario 
M5T 1T1

https://www.facebook.com/events/245116135641607/?ref_newsfeed_story_type=regular&source=1

EDIT--
I SHOULD attend this, even though I rarely attend concerts / gigs. 
WHY should I attend? 
BECAUSE. 
BECAUSE it was through originally talking to guitarist Steve on facebook many years ago and he surreptitiously included a few mystery bonus songs at the end of one our CD-R trades. 

I was very curious WHAT BAND it was, as it was really good, and later he informed me it was his band, SPEWGORE from their first PRO-CD-R release. 

THAT got me excited there was still REAL THRASH in the Toronto area that existed as how I remember it from the 1980s. 

 IF IT WASN'T FOR SPEWGORE, THIS BLOG PROBABLY WOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN STARTED, 
AND YOU WOULD NOT HAVE DOWNLOADED ALL SORTS OF STUFF OVER THE YEARS WHEN I WAS IN THE MOOD. 

so there, nyah.

Toronto Crypt Metal E-Zine


A new website / blogspot just started. Looks like one reason is for reviews to be able to be re-posted to Metal Archives?
anyways, so far, only a review of CROMLECH.

I know, I don't care much myself for reading reviews when it is easier and faster to listen or download, but the emphasis by them will be on local bands, which is  something I don't work hard enough at, so the more support out there, the better for all of you to be informed.

Since I don't get my hands on much of it, and am unaware of many Ontario bands and events, as I will collect vinyl and cassettes from all over the world depending what I dig that week, but will miss plenty of great stuff right under my nose.
You figure with so much online, and so many links everywhere, it would be easier?
Not for me.

Pretty much starting to think these days that *Jeremy from the band SATAN'S GOD has it correct.

Bands that don't print snail mail addresses on their releases for contact/purchase and this info is also on printed paper material (fanzines/ newsletters / magazines) maybe are NOT the real underground scene they claim to be part of and say we should support.

Most bands don't appear to care and don't understand. (For example, what became the trend starting in the early 2000's, "the myspace band"-era, where they don't even release anything on a physical format, they just post audio files to listen to).


Anyways, enough of my stupid rant. Support  http://toronto-crypt.blogspot.ca/

(Jeremy B. sells his PRO demo tapes and home-dubbed bootleg concert tapes of his band for really cheap, so if in the USA, send him stamps for a guaranteed reply.
If you send $3 (well hidden cash, such as wrapped inside of many flyers/newsprint and your letter, for example)(or a blank money order) for his long awaited 17th album, "Void Consequence In 3-D" out now on cassette

This song below is on the live album CD-R released by SFM SKULLFUCKING METAL Records &  Distro.


hmm. since I mentioned this band, guess I should pull out some emails and do the same courtesy for others, which are more in the traditional metal styles most of you want.

From one of the fastest, craziest, D.R.I.- type hardcore bands of the 1980s, SONS OF ISHMAEL,
is the return of guitarist Glenn Poirier aka "Ditchdog".

This small demo collection was shared by him a few years ago and he gave permission to be shared here.
It is pure hard rock in the vein of The Cult, Econoline Crush, AC/DC, Airbourne, etc

Glenn has a new band that played Hamilton recently, but I missed them.

NO IDEA yet what Generation Hexed is like, but he has always been in a band that plays good riffs,
