  1. Forgot to mention that the expected audience for Hyde Park will top 50,000 ..... Edited to add - and being a Limey, I totally forgot that it's INDEPENDENCE DAY for Chrissakes ..
  2. I'm in. How about London Hyde Park on July 4th playing alongside Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Faith No More and Motorhead? Or ship it to Alicante for August 16 where we have a show with Michael Schenker, Behemoth and Arch Enemy. Or another 6-week European tour starting November 2? Or a bunch of stuff in between times depending on availabilty. Either way, I'll add to the case candy ....
  3. I know I posted this before, but for anyone who hasn't seen it - the 'Weapons Of Choice' used for tracking our second album; Left to right; My 4-digit #0204 - 95% of everything you'll hear was tracked on this. It sings. Andy's 2012 ESP LTD Nergal Signature 7-string - used to add grunt in a few places Andy's 2013 DBZ Cavallo ST-FR Andy's 2012 ESP Edwards Custom Shop V Andy's 2013 ESP Custom Shop Andy Sneap Signature V, with a flame top Hamer would have been proud of, plus a titanium Floyd My '08 Standard Custom.
  4. Wow. I feel like I just spent two years writing a killer original album for nothing. Without the brave pioneers who stake their claim to be different and innovative, we'd have nothing to inspire us, excite us and have our jaws on the floor. Guys in my fortunate position would also be swallowing up the dozens of free guitars I get offered, instead of sticking to my guns and wearing a minority instrument from a dead manufacturer.
  5. Any modern metal band who advertise the fact that they belong to a specific 'genre' are by definition unoriginal, lame copyists with no creativity or musical direction/ideas of their own. Just by reading the ad copy I can tell you EXACTLY what these guys will look like and EXACTLY what they will sound like. They'll have the right tattoos, the right T-shirts, the right cutoffs, the right sneakers and the right sideways haircuts. They'll play exactly the same done-to-death blastbeats and growled vocals, along with the same swept arpeggios - exactly the same as hundreds of other no-hopers - and c
  6. So sorry about the live stream screwup guys. The whole thing was a technical nightmare virtually from start to finish - which was a disappointment especially for our crew guys who had somehow managed to rig that entire stage set and pyros in 18 minutes flat - a miraculous achievement even by their standards. The live sound at the event was utterly flawless, and it's disappointing for us hearing the godawful temporary stream mix which is the inevitable result of some poor guy sat in an outside broadcast truck who suddenly gets 48 channels of unmixed audio thrown at him - in the knowledge that i
  7. Hey guys, Since a US tour still hasn't happened yet.... We're playing Bloodstock Open Air tomorrow (Saturday 10th) - along with King Diamond, Accept, Exodus, Slayer, Anthrax, Lamb Of God and dozens of others. It's the UK's biggest metal festival and we hit the mainstage at around 13.35 UK time. The event is being live streamed - so grab a few beers and tune in; http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x12kc97_live-steam-bloodstock-festival-2013_music Best wishes
  8. A thing of beauty and wonder indeed. Happy for you, bud
  9. This. TOTALLY THIS. Great job Zen. A coupla Super V orders coming SD's way from the UK
  10. Looking through the websites posted as suggestions by stratacus and many other of you guys, I can well believe it. They all look fantastic - what a selection, and a real eye-opener for us Brits who always assumed that American beer started and ended in MIlwaukee. Just in case anyone was wondering how come the band has its own beer - here's my kid brother's microbrewery..... http://www.northstarbeers.co.uk/
  11. OK - I know it's not American, but I had to add this. It's the band's own beer. At our last show, we sold 9 UK kegs at the venue bar (about 630 pints) We're bottling this from August onwards - so PM me your address and I'll throw some samples in the mail. Same goes for any other HFC member who fancies a super-strong traditional black English ale made with 6 different malts. Note to belgian - you'd like this. Think of a micro-brewed, slightly sweeter Leffe bruin or one of the darker triple Trappist beers from your great country, and you'll be on the right track..... http://s433.photobucket.com
  12. Based on this I'd avoid him. Every deal I've entered with so much back story has turned into a problem, whether it being shipping delays, overstated condition to flat out never shipping the item. His life is in turmoil and you are low on his list of issues to get to. I was thinking the same thing as I read it. Agreed. I would avoid it. Me too, I'd run a mile from that. It reads like the text from a Nigerian email scam. WHY would anyone tell that deeply personal stuff to a total stranger?
  13. I saw a reddish V-shaped guitar and immediately did this......... I then realised exactly what it was and did this........ Only you, buddy - only you. It's REALLY cool.
  14. Beautiful - congrats to you and kudos to Greg for helping it happen. When you get bored with it, just remember who offered you $350 first. This is now committed in writing......
