High on Fire is BACK with a new video for "Fertile Green". Glad to hear that Matt Pike is on the road back to good health.

You haven't really heard New Order's "Blue Monday" till you've heard it sung by a Welsh male choir. You can watch Brythoniad Male Voice Choir take on this indie disco staple below.

What else?

Russian Circles freakin SLAYED, but someone please tell me why sausages smell soooo fucking bad? I mean, there were these two sausages near me, groping each other inappropriately, and the man stick was so unbearable I had to move. What, were daddy's friends all stinky when they gang raped you? FUCK! Would it kill you to shower?

Russian Circles were great, as were Marriages. 10:24 is just an ignorant troll.
