apagon + ohsnap! = love
If anyone out there hasn't already heard about Apagon, you probably should. they're the newest addition to the OS!R roster of scarborough maine superstars, and the little demo they've stuck up online (which may or may not end up in some form of mini release on ohsnap!) has really grown on me. They're a group of sexy young men that stretch the themes of metal to their melodic most without forsaking all heavyness, nor death metal's traditionally brutal low growl (and guitarist/singer shane's rendition is quite impressive). The guitars are a laid back and less agressive death and black metal style with a lot of intersting solo work, as well as their own quirky spin on the music in the same way one might describe the stylings of fellow OS! sexymen Midriff. There is also some slight resemblence to Apagon members' long-dead former project Robust, despite the stark change in genre.
Their two-song demo dealy can be found at http://www.purevolume.com/apagon/

The Battle for WHFS
Hey everybody. I need your help.
My friends at WHFS are in a real bad situation right now after being fucked over by the jackasses at Infinity Broadcasting. As you probably read from my previous post, they lost their jobs with little to no notice yesterday when WHFS was suddenly replaced on the FM dial with El Zol, a spanish-language pop station.
If you can help me out, send an e-mail to Joel Hollander, president and COO of Infinity Broadcasting at firstname.lastname@example.org and demand that WHFS be put back on the air. Even if you're not familiar with the station, trust me in that it is a vital part of the D.C. music scene.
For those that are in the D.C. area, there are tentative plans for a protest at the Asylum Wake-Skate-Snow store at 819 7th street NW Saturday morning at 11:00 AM. I'll update if there's any change in those plans here.
A lot of you not from the D.C. area may not be aware of WHFS, but for years the station has helped many a struggling band get national recognition and acclaim. The annual HFStival is a highlight of the concert season on the East Coast and was even immortalized in the Good Charlotte song "Festival Song", the video for which was even shot at the HFStival!
Please don't let this Washington institution go away when there is less and less variety on the airwaves each day.
Thanks a lot and take care,

ok so I've spent some time the last couple of days going through the tapes I recorded this past fall/winter and I've been thinking. I still really want to release that cassette, but I'm not sure how I want to do it. Should I plan on re-recording all or most of the demos and release a solid sounding tape or should I just take the best takes from these demos and put together a retrospective sort of thing, including most of the songs from '02-'04? this is really only an issue because I lose the motivation for this thing every month or two. The best thing would definitely be re-recording everything in one session with better mics and a few other players, but there's a good chance this would result in the tape never coming out at all. I'm not feeling too serious about this, I mean I'm completely aware of how far LM! reached, which was basically to me and that's all, I just don't want all of these songs to just sit on my computer or on my fourtrack forever, good or bad. I'm sure most of you haven't heard LM!, and if you have there's a really good chance that you think I'm retarded now, but pretend I'm a good friend and talented musician and let me know what you think I should do. Current Mood: tired.
