Morbid Angel
Morbid Angel

Two outdoor tents, a club, and a theater hosted 26 bands. Perhaps by design, the premises lacked alcohol (except for the theater). So bad behavior was scarce. Fans happily bounced from venue to venue, queuing for some bands (Wormrot, Floor, Atheist, Obituary, Morbid Angel), and eating burgers from the Grill 'Em All trucks. To order the Witte Burger (beef, bun, cream cheese, deep-fried bacon, beer-and-Sriracha-soaked onions, malt vinegar aioli), my friend Robert merely pointed several feet away, where Dave Witte himself was standing.
-[Invisible Oranges]
Saturday (3/5) was the left coast's turn for Scion Rock Fest 2011. The one day, multiple venue festival relocated to Pomona, CA this year, and housed legendary names like Morbid Angel, Obituary, Integrity, Agalloch, and many more alongside names of tomorrow and underground favorites like Bastard Noise, Anaal Nathrakh, Floor, Wormrot, and many more.

Kvelertak were supposed to play too. but their passports and visas were stolen at the airport moments before they boarded the plane to the US. As a result, they'll also miss some days of the Weedeater/Zoroaster tour, but should "be in the states by Friday" (3/11). That means they should have no trouble making it to SXSW where they're on board to play Full Metal Texas. The band was replaced in Pomona by Black Cobra.

Who still listens to metal? So boring! Everyone still dresses like they are going to see Helloween and The Scorpions! So Sad!

I don't care for metal but I used to date in college who was really into it. He had the hugest dick and could somehow fuck me while eating me out.

12 15 years ago if you told me Bastard Noise and Integrity would be playing back to back id probably not have believed you no matter who you were.

God, will someone please throw a brick through "Dr. Rob D'Aquila's" office already! What an irritating ad. We get it, you're one of us, you understand what we go through. Now, go the fuck away.

Talk about overfuckingkill.

12:51: If you are not trolling, you might be one of the stupidest people alive. NO ONE can be that out of touch.

Where's the Immolation pics?

12:51, I think the most interesting part of your comment is that your judgement of the music seems solely based on what people are wearing. That is very telling indeed.

Morbidly Obese Angel is my pet name for the current conditioning of Fear Factory
