-
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!

Snow tonight? Good, it has been too damn hot for way too long...




http://www.theweathernetwork.com/news/articles/dangerous-travel-as-snow-pushes-into-ontario/60001/

Andrea Bagley
Digital Reporter
Thursday, November 19, 2015, 6:32 AM - Snow tires -- check? Travelers should prepare for winter driving conditions not once, but twice in parts of Ontario this week. 
Rain showers developed across southern Ontario Wednesday night and will continue for eastern Ontario through the day on Thursday.
"Southwestern Ontario will clear out through the morning, yet a trough approaching from the west may bring in some late day cloud cover and isolated showers," says Weather Network meteorologist Erin Wenckstern. "Otherwise, mild temperatures continue for one last day with a breezy southerly wind."
LAKE EFFECT SNOW SQUALLS
According to Wenckstern, winds will shift to a cool, southwest wind Thursday evening supplying the energy needed for lake effect snow squalls to develop northeast of Lake Superior and Huron/Georgian Bay.
"Local snow squall activity likely tonight into Friday," says Environment Canada in a special weather statement issued for parts of southern Ontario early Thursday morning. "Showers are forecast to change to flurries and local snow squalls late tonight into Friday morning as temperatures drop behind a cold front."

While significant accumulations are not expected from this system, heavy flurries and local blowing snow could reduce visibilities.
"Travelers should prepare for winter driving conditions," EC warns.
It's a different story in northern Ontario however, where snow and blowing snow are expected to persist through Friday with general snowfall amounts of 15 to 20 cm possible by Friday evening.


WEEKEND SNOW
This weekend brings a greater chance for accumulating snow in parts of southern Ontario.
"An approaching system from the west will bring the first 'systematic' snow for southern Ontario Saturday," Wenckstern says.
"Most of the Greater Toronto Area below the escarpment should see only minor accumulations (dusting to 2 cm), but heavier amounts are expected above the escarpment," adds Weather Network meteorologist Doug Gillham. "Travel will be impacted north and northwest of the GTA, potentially including Guelph and Kitchener-Waterloo."


 Doug Gillham @gtaweather1
Classic lake effect snow set-up Sat. night - Sunday in typical snowbelts; Difficult travel in snow squalls, primarily north & NW of the GTA

According to Gillham, totals will continue to increase towards Lake Huron and Georgian Bay and significant accumulations are likely for parts of the Nickel Belt as well including North Bay.
"Late Saturday night and Sunday, bands of lake effect snow will develop east and southeast of Georgian Bay and Lake Huron with significant accumulations likely (in addition to what falls from the system) in the more persistent bands," Gillham warns. "Difficult travel is likely in these areas."
Wet snow that melts and/or gets packed down by vehicles and then refreezes as temperatures drop will produce icy roads.
In addition to the snow, strong and gusty winds are expected.


Like a killer in the state
Like a rat in a maze
Living in a city of freak
(Lives on children in the snow
It's too late) you can't go
Smashes on with turning teeth

The wheels of chains roles again
It was marching like a prowler
Sacrifice the raw flesh
You are nice, you are cash
Here come the flesh eater

Run like blower - eats like a grinder
Run like blower - eats like a grinder

Chatterning sound of iron
You smell the smoke of carbone
Tell me if it's near
I'm in the snow, I panic, I can't go
I see the yellow blades of danger

Run like blower - eats like a grinder
Run like blower - eats like a grinder

Run like blower - eats like a grinder
Run like blower - eats like a grinder

Chatterning sound of iron
You smell the smoke of carbone
Tell me if it's near
I'm in the snow, I panic, I can't go
I see the yellow blades of danger

Run like blower - eats like a grinder
Run like blower - eats like a grinder
A grinder! A grinder!

Brian Taylor CKLN-FM interviews POSSESSED - 1985


Possessed (US) Zine interview with Larry Lalonde in Montreal 81985
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWiXo0p1XqU
yeah, not even a Canadian band, but lots of us loved them up here 
and I bet many are still pissed off they never played once in Toronto! 
(Though I remember saying hello to Jeff Becerra because he WAS at The Siboney Club once, just hanging out and catching a concert once, maybe Nuclear Assault or Sacrifice in the summer of 1988 or '89).
Unsure of the interview recording date, but I think this guy has it wrong. Maybe this interview was printed in Metallica Assault, or Brutal Torture fanzine...but I am too lazy to look.

if you still believe... i don't..because I think politics is all fixed....but if you still do...D.O.A.'s Joe Keithley Seeks Green Party Nomination

http://exclaim.ca/music/article/dos_joe_keithley_seeking_green_party_nomination

D.O.A.'s Joe Keithley Seeks Green Party Nomination

D.O.A.'s Joe Keithley Seeks Green Party Nomination
D.O.A. leader Joe "Shithead" Keithley is jumping back into party politics, having announced he's vying for a Green Party nomination in an upcoming Metro Vancouver by-election.

Keithley announced his campaign today (September 1), confirming that, if nominated by the Greens, he'll be trying to grab an MLA spot in the Coquitlam-Burke Mountain riding.

"I want to help the citizens of Coquitlam get fair value for their taxes from the BC government, which they are not," Keithley said in a statement. "My other top priorities are: lowering costs for students, helping seniors, tax cuts and incentives for small businesses and promoting 'green' technology. I would also work hard to protect our environment and we all know the Greens are the only party actually committed to that."

This isn't the first time Keithley has tried to grab a nomination from a political party. He had run for the Green Party in the 1996 and 2001 general elections in the since-dissolved riding of Burnaby-Willingdon, and switched allegiances ahead of the 2013 provincial election in an attempt to get nominated as a member of BC's NDP Party. Apparently, the party swap was short-lived.

"I am here to work for the people of Coquitlam and to listen to them, unlike the BC NDP and the BC Liberals who only answer to their financial masters, big unions and big companies respectively," Keithley continued. "I will honestly represent our citizens concerns in the legislature if I am elected. It's really about giving power back to the people. The Green Party is the only party where the votes will not be party whipped. I will put the people's wishes first. Grassroots democracy is what I am all about."

RIOTOR (Quebec) - (2015) ''Rusted Throne'' LP --- write-up / ordering info

Here are some nice blurry photos so nobody else will use them.







I dunno man, I just don't know.

Been waiting years for the follow-up to RIOTOR's amazing (2010) debut LP, "Beast Of Riot",


and for a total of $15.00 CAD, which includes shipping costs in Canada), ordered the digipack CD version of "Rusted Throne" instead of the cassette tape from foreign lands or waiting for a vinyl edition.

The musicians in the band still are fast and heavy as fucking hell, busting out some pretty raging death metal / thrash metal.
The packaging is cool with oldschool type artwork and photos, with lyric sheet included. The production is perfect.

BUT...
What the hell happened to Ismarevil's vocals ??

Sure, he sounds MORE raw and bleeding and raspy this time, but I miss the "Quebec/French"-type accent from the first album and demo tapes.
That was part of the charm, Ismarevil reminded us of Snake from VoiVod, or Stephan Whitton of Soothsayer with that Quebecois sound.

Now, he kind of sounds the same on every song, which makes it harder  to remember any of them.
Did he blow out his voice previous to recording the album ? had a cold ?
Too much rehearsal time before going into the studio? Too many live concerts before recording?
Something changed !!



anyways, maybe I will get used to it...

If any of you like it brutal and uncompromising, like Morbid Saint, Holy Moses, Sentinel Beast, etc., you will dig it.

Death Sentence


This was one of the first hardcore bands that I heard that appealed a lot to me, even as a metalhead., with their Not A Pretty Sight (1986) LP.

I don't know if they were ever really labelled "crossover", but they had metal-edge guitars and some metal riffing.


They disappeared I guess after they made a second LP on Fringe Records, which had some hard rock songs, but it did yield a music video that got a lot of airplay "Danger Zone", plus a killer circle-pit song that was on the B-side of that 7 inch single, "I Want A Woman From the Soviet Union" (Danger Zone / I.W.A.W.F.T. Soviet Union ‎(7")

Armed & Hammered ‎– It's About Fucking Time (1997)

Alrighty,
I started looking online for any Armed & Hammered music downloads,
(you can read some band history + info here -  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armed_and_Hammered
 or here - -  http://www.punkrockplanet.com/music/bands/armed-and-hammered/  )
so, I was looking for the demo tape with guitarist Crazy Dave (who became  Hardcore Dave, but I bet nobody remembers the name change or why...hmmm, I forgot why it was changed too..)

(here is something else Dave created http://torontothrash.blogspot.ca/2014/11/dave-mcleod-ex-armed-hammered.html )

I found this free download.

Thanks to the band for being cool and sharing !


http://armedandhammered.bandcamp.com/releases

 The only merch they are selling is a funny t-shirt, and I probably will buy that eventually, but still want to get again a copy of the old 1991 tape!
PS.
I am pretty sure I remember in the early or mid-1990s, their singer, Mopa Dean, was a radio dj on a Toronto college or university station.
Or  is he still a dj, after all this time ?

RAZOR history 1984

Since I don't have a copy anymore of Metallic Assault  #1 (or of #2 !) fanzine, I will guess this is where the RAZOR history 1984 by Derek Emerson  is from.

review - Vio-lence / Defiance / Overthrow , Thursday October 4, 1990 The Apocalypse Club

I was remembering that Overthrow are to be released on vinyl
 http://torontothrash.blogspot.ca/2014/08/overthrow-to-be-released-on-vinyl-in.html .

Here is a review I found online, taken from an old fanzine or newspaper.
Thanks to the original uploader.

I barely remember that concert.
By the time Vio-lence hit the stage though, MOST of the audience had gone home!
I can't remember why, but they started playing after midnight or 1 am!
the last TTC subway train and last bus for many was between midnight-1:30 am (I think).
Not everybody lived downtown and could walk or take an all night streetcar home.

Another thing I remember was the usual thing, a bunch of assholes standing on the stage all around and blocking the view of the band ,so the rest of us could barely  see anything. (The ceiling was only about 7 feet high for crying out loud).

All the bands delivered good sets, but think I was tired of the Apocalypse Club and that bullshit of not seeing anything for half of the shows I attended  there.
The more popular the band, the more likely I would not see anything.
It was great for local bands and all ages shows though.

Here is some stuff I took from Dark Legion's MySpace years ago.
Interview taken  from Keelhauled ,and Doomhauled fanzine #1 back cover, with a review. (both released in 1990 )

BEYOND 1987-03-13 Friday the 13th at Ildiko's (live audience recording)

originally posted Saturday, December 3, 2011



I DON'T HAVE THE FLYER OF THIS GIG ANYMORE AND HAVE NOT SEEN IT UPLOADED.
I PUT OFF SHARING THIS GIG FOR AWHILE, BECAUSE I CAN'T FIND THE FLYER, BUT THAT ISN'T YOUR FAULT, UNLESS YOU HAVE THE FUCKER.
IF YOU DO, THEN UPLOAD IT AND SHARE IT !

Beyond (Bramalea,ON) 1987-03-13 Friday the 13th of March at Ildiko's (The Bridge,Toronto)

The sound is not too hot, there was a loud buzzing through the PA due to the fluorescent lights / spotlights used, interfering with the guitar pickup's.

Paul Garvey - vocals/guitar
Shaun Garvey - Bass
? Sean Wisener - drums

I always thought it was Razor's drummer Rob Mills, but when I met him briefly when he was unloading gear at the GTS 4 gig, he said he briefly jammed with them, but didn't record the "Inner World" demo, ( and maybe didn't play any gigs either? )

Recorded on a SONY mono recorder, in front of the PA on the audience's right side, most of the patrons were seated on the left side.
Nobody was in the pit, nobody standing up front.
Everybody was sitting down at tables and drinking / watching this gig.
Less than one hundred people, maybe 50 patrons.

the voice you hear speaking briefly for a second or two between songs near my walkman is either James C. or John C. of Malhavoc.

There was a guest singer on the Sodom cover, Steve Donnell (sp?), the super-longhaired singer from the Brampton speedcore band DISTORTION.

01.Tight Ass
02.Awaken To Dream
03.Beyond The Mind
04.Man of Morals

The guest singer's name is Steve Donohoe. Me, Steve, and Jason Flood formed a band in 84/85 called TNT (Thermo Nuclear Threat). I had left by 86 and Paul Garvey took over as guitar player, shortly after that, the band evolved into "Beyond". Jason Flood went to a band called "Curious Mold"

ah, they don't have the tape uploaded I used go have, copied for me by Dave Busch.
Had a ton of great songs ,like "Bus Stop Cruising" (ripping off Ted Nugent's "Cat Scratch Fever" riff), and "My Car is a piece of shit"!

The sound is hissy. Only real demo freaks and diehard Beyond fans will want it ,when they had that early Sodom influence in their sound.

This blog originally was going to be just for hardcore punk, and metal, bands from the Toronto area that played in the thrash style.

NOW, it's for anything I like, but will attempt to limit it to hard rock, hc, heavy metal that is Canadian.

and on that note, I wish I had Lee Aaron when she did the City-TV live concert with Frank Soda in the early 1980s.
Anybody seen a copy floating around?

Beyond (Can) 1987 Inner World Demo

originally posted Friday, August 14, 2009 


no demo cover was made for this, as far as I know, and that's how it was traded by mail.

Beyond (Can) 1987 Inner World Demo @VBR

1.Awaken To A Dream
2.Flame Of Understanding
3.Quest Through Paradox
4.Introverted Cry
5.Man Of Morals
6.Strength In Numbers
7.Faith Of Unknown
8.Beyond The Mind

Download

Produced by Brian Taylor on a very small budget (it might have $100 or $200).
Paul Garvey -vocals-guitar
Shaun Garvey -bass (no relation)
Rob Mills -drums (later joined Razor)

Was not sold as far as I know, as they were not happy with it.

EDIT:
I just remembered. It has been ringing in my head since I did this post.
Brian said something like, 'They didn't spend much money, they couldn't afford studio time, and only spent $60'.
I'll have to ask Paul Garvey about that next time I talk to him (whenever that will be, who knows).

The guys in BEYOND should have been proud as I rank this along side Nuclear Assault's debut album as one of the best classic thrash metal releases ever.

See...you don't need money, sometimes all you need is HEART & SOUL put into it.

RoadRash 2015 ROADRASH Demo
[speed metal thrash metal heavy metal Vancouver]

32 minutes 29 seconds
https://www.facebook.com/YOUKNOWTHEPOINT
"name your price" / free download
https://roadrashmusic.bandcamp.com/releases

I was looking at the Hard N Heavy page, and seen this band said to be added to their label.
Good effort, very 1980s-sounding. Is it me or are more bands these days going for less of the typical thrash metal guitar sound, and more for fast heavy metal/speed metal ? A LOT of underground South American metal  bands have been doing it for awhile now.

RoadRash Cassettes maybe sold out from the band, write Inti to ask if he's re-releasing them?

Here's a rip @ VBR
Cheers to my friend in Brampton for copying this for me

(Any of the the band members and friends of the band I posted to on facebook would not rip and upload, or offer to tapetrade a copy...it was a fluke that I got this. Thanks Steve!)

AFTER THIS demo tape, the band jumped on the alternative metal bandwagon in the early 1990s. Blah.   
At least they released a decent demo if you like NWOBHM and METALLICA - AJFA era.
