WHO ever you are , and WHERE ever you are, say ONLY these 5 words to police if taken into custody -
Remember these five words.
This will save you in many cases.
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,
even if they stop at your door and ask questions, DO NOT ANSWER QUESTIONS,
The police have stolen from my personal belongings in the past and I wonder if those items will appear in a future crime scene!

Unsettled weather pattern across southern and central Ontario for Halloween

Snow is coming! Five things you need to know

Unsettled weather pattern across southern and central Ontario for Halloween


Cheryl Santa Maria
Digital Reporter
Thursday, October 30, 2014, 6:35 PM - A low pressure system is threatening to bring up to 15 cm of snow to parts of Ontario between Thursday and Saturday. Here are five things you need to know

1. Rain for the GTA, snow elsewhere
"While rain is primarily on tap for the GTA, widespread snow is in the forecast for regions east of Lake Superior and northeast of Georgian Bay," says Weather Network meteorologist Brett Solderholm.
That includes the Nickel Belt, which could get up to 15 cm of snow by the time all is said and done.
2. Timing
The system is expected to remain in the province from Thursday night to Saturday morning, with the height of the storm occurring Friday.
"Snow will being to fall during the pre-dawn hours Friday for Sudbury and gradually taper off during the afternoon," Solderholm says.
3. Accumulation
  • West of Sudbury and eastward to North Bay: 5-10 cm of snow
  • Lake Nippissing (including Sundridge and east toward Algonquin Park): 10-15 cm of snow
  • Bracebridge towards Barrie: Less than 5 cm of snow
  • Near Orangeville (in higher elevations): 2-4 cm of snow
Parts of the GTA may see less than a centimetre of snow.

4. Wind
"Strong winds are expected to build throughout Friday afternoon across much of southern and central Ontario, leading to particularly gusty conditions along the eastern shores of Lake Huron and the Georgian Bay," Solderholm says.
Gusts up to 80 km/h in this region are expected.
5. Forecast confidence
While there's moderate confidence some areas will see accumulating snowfall, there remains some uncertainty in the exact snowfall totals.
"Marginal temperatures could result in a few centimetres of deviation," Solderholm says.
Current models suggest the highest accumulation is expected between Huntsville and North Bay.
  • Krissy Vann will be heading to Sudbury to cover this system as it rolls in Friday.
  • Chris Dawson will be reporting from North Bay Friday and Saturday.
  • Mike Arsenault will be covering the trick-or-treating hours in Port Perry and the GTA.
We will be live-streaming our coverage of this system online and on mobile. A link will be provided on Ontario city pages once the stream is running.

missing is "Balance Of Power" off  MySpace (and like 10 more songs off the tape???)

I grabbed these shitty sounding mp3's off MySpace, and had a difficult time.
They sound  a million times better if you go to the page and listen there -

The program I used years ago, to download audio from any website, has not yet been reinstalled yet, since I had to delete everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, off my computer a few times.

earlier this year I hoped that their tape might come up for sale on eBay or somebody would upload it all. 
Still hoping.
The hardcore / punky beats and riffs are neat, mixed with growled hardcore and death metal vocals.

Can't remember if it was on EPIDEMIC RECORDS run by (ex-SLAUGHTER drummer) Ron Sumners.
Just because it isn't listed on Discogs, does not mean it didn't.
Hopefully somebody from Ajax/Pickering reads this and enlightens us.

I keep wondering... one of their guitarists had long brown or dark red hair and wore eyeglasses, and when I seen a Hamilton band named GNARLY SKULL around 5 years ago, I thought it was the same guy!

Galy Records

a reminder of this excellent distro and record label.

Galy Records in Quebec is selling a lot of CD's for CHEAP !



They have always been good and supportive of the metal underground scene, inexpensive, and when you order, sometimes they throw in free extras.

I probably still haven't listened to every thing I bought (and all the extras) from last year!

L'évolution du métal québécois

DO you speak / read French ? I don't. Fuck me. Now I wish I could.
There is a book in conjunction with a boxset of classic 1980s Quebec demo cassette tape re-releases.
Since I have a few of what I really want out of these, on CD / vinyl, guess I will pass on the boxset.
Voivod “No Speed Limit – Iron Gang Fanclub Live Demo”
Voor “Evil Metal 1985”
Aggression “Demo #1 1987”
Outrage “Buried Pieces 1984-1986 Demos”
Soothsayer “To Be a Real Terrorist”
Treblinka “Trials of War 1987”
Vensor “Thrash Till Death 1987”
Obliveon “Whimsical Uproar 1987”

This tape boxset was organized by Annick Giroux (Cauchemar, Morbid Tales Zine, Hellbent for Cooking book, etc.) in conjunction with the book "L'Évolution du Métal Québecois", which is coming out in October 2014.

ACCURSED SPAWN Release Drum Webisode From PUTRID Recording Sessions

Published on Oct 7, 2014
Studio update from the drum sessions for Putrid. Recorded at Serrated Studios.
Pre-order the Putrid EP: http://accursedspawn.bigcartel.com/

Canadian Violent Death Metal outfit ACCURSED SPAWN has released a webisode from the drum recording sessions for their upcoming EP, 'PUTRID'.

Jay Cross (drums) commented on the video, “We had some footage laying around from the PUTRID drum recordings so Luke [vocals] and I decided to edit it together and post it up on YouTube. Half the material is the standard drum recording stuff, and the other half gives people a flavor for what recording with us is actually like. In other words, empty beer bottles and stupid jokes. We're a pretty deep band.”

PUTRID will be independently released on October 28th, marking the bands second EP since 2012's Engendering a Sociopath. Early reviews have pegged it as the Accursed Spawn's strongest recording to date, packing a powerful punch reminiscent of early releases from bands like Cryptopsy, Cannibal Corpse and Suffocation.

For more info, please visit the following links:
Cool video with some parts that made me laugh out loud for real .

I downloaded all their music , and I am glad I listened to this newest release first, as I don't like the way the drums were miked  / recorded on Accursed Spawn's debut demo "Dismember The Informant" (2010). It had that gawd awful pingy noise that have plagued too many other good bands, eg. AXIS OF ADVANCE, and ADVERSARIAL.

Accursed Spawn will be performing next at Montreal's Metal Academie on October 22nd, as well as the second instalment of Ottawa's Extreme Halloween on November 1st.
