I will start by apologizing for the crappy iPhone photos below, but I did want to provide some evidence that we are in fact working at getting it all going!
For for those of you in the GTA, we’ve been practicing over at a place called The Rehearsal Factory, and man is it a great place to practice! They have some crazy ass rooms, like Hell’s Pit from above, but also some really great non devil worshipping rooms as well for those of you that aren’t into ritual sacrifice the way we are…. But in all seriousness if you’re looking for a great place to play I would definitely recommend it, rates are reasonable, they have some great equipment and the place is clean and very comfortable…
I will completely admit to the process being a humbling one, I haven’t played with other people in over a decade and it really shows. Some of the other guys are in the same boat, though not as long I don’t think and not as rusty. That being said you there is already progress and I fully expect that we will begin ramping up content here over the next month or two. I think we have some pretty fun ideas lined up and can’t wait to share them with you guys… Hey speaking of sharing….
We had the family over yesterday during the day for my sons birthday party, and the topic got brought up by my lovely wife (*cough*thanks for throwing my under the bus dear 😛 *cough*) that I would not be home that evening because I had band practice…. Now I don’t know about the rest of you out there in bands, but for me this was like chumming the water for the inevitable shark feeding frenzy that would follow. The next half hour or so was a series of jokes about head banging, when and where were we playing, would we be writing our own songs, how they would follow us around and be our groupies, dress up as god knows what when doing said groupying (is that even a word?) and on and on and on… Which in the back of my mind started convincing me more and more that really what we need to be doing is starting a Rammstein cover band:
Well on the plus side it’s out there now and I don’t have to worry about that any more, now I just have to figure out the right way to scar them and dissuade them from their aforementioned “groupying” project. And that is it for now my friends, we will talk in the near future 🙂
