I'm finally getting around to listening to the new Hades Archer, "Temple of the Impure" (which I can't link here because the album art is rule C violation).

It's weird hearing Hades Archer this polished -- they're nowhere near as raw and out-of-control as they were five years ago, when their previous album was released, or nine years ago when they released a certain EP (the title of which I can't mention here because of rule C rearing its head again) which remains their most well-known release (only partially because of the fame/infamy gained by its absurd title). "Temple of the Impure" is a fun listen, but I can't help but feel that some of the charm has been lost from the days when they sounded like a pair of coked-out maniacs playing as hard as they could, tightness and musicality be damned.

Specifically, The Day I Tried To live, Soundgarden.

Cornell wrote a lot of great stuff, but this song is still awe inspiring. I love this amateur video, just watching the lyrics spool thru like I'm hearing it for the first time. Even more eerie because of his awful end.

I love this album so much. It was also a huge influence on my playing, with opening track "Cromlech" being one of my favorite songs to play when I was just starting out.

Well, you already know I am an Andy fanatic but was perusing for some Andy to work on and ran across this. Maybe you have all already seen this and I am just late to the party but just in case . . . Dudes and Dudets, this put tears in my 60 year old eyes . . .

That's a really cool record. I give it a spin every once in a while.
