5.0 out of 5 stars Not all it's cracked up to be., Jan. 6 2004
This review is from: Hammering Process (Audio CD)
It has alot of build ups, but it seems like they do'nt use any of the energy they have except for in two songs, and that would be Conditional and Bloodwork. That's about it, the rest of the CD is basically filler, and really doesn't offer anything new, but I guess I'm dissappointed by this one because I had already heard Reborn and Conceived in Fire, I mean those 2 CDs rule! This is just really mediocre for them and I know they can do better. Very repedative.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Beggining of the downfall of the corporate media, Jan. 1 2004
This review is from: Damned Damned Damned (Audio CD)
The first punk band is their claim to fame. The music is great, but keep in mind this is the philosophy behind the 1st wave punk movement. TRUE punks have matured pass the anarchy stage and found that we can do more damage in the system then outside of it. Give the guys credit for starting the whole thing. Thanx guys, we will never forget what you guys did for us. Now we got to get the play acting anarchist and mommies little skinhead outta our scen, and quit with all the "this is punk and that's not" crud because that really is doing no good and we haven't changed anything. Let's get back to the glory days. This record will give the feel of those good ol' days that all the posers and fake anarchist are keeping from happening again.

If you're wondering if you're a poser, well then have you been to Ozzfest? What you have, congratulations, you're now an official poseur. There are no metal bands on this CD, and plus they all suck live. You want some real metal get some Norma Jean, ZAO, Extol, and Crimson Thorn.

2.0 out of 5 stars Brutal as Heck!!!, Dec 30 2003
This review is from: Consume The Forsaken (Audio CD)
This is one of the heaviest and most brutal bands on the planet, but the lyrics. My goodness, what is so desirable about hating other people, murdering, and eating rotting flesh? What gives? If I want stupid and idiotic lyrics, I'll listen to Eminem, but this band has a lot of potential, but the lyrics ruin it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Okay, you really wanna a review?, Dec 30 2003
This review is from: Eps Or Rp (Audio CD)
Well I think that Rudimentary Peni is a great band, so u should bye this cd right a way. So if you even remotely consider yourself punk and claim that you don't have this CD then you need to be beaten. This is an absolute essencial punk CD. You can't live without. They are rarely understood, and speak in imagery, but believe me, this is a thinking man's punk album. Get this right now!

1.0 out of 5 stars Well written, but utterly ridiculous!, Dec 30 2003
Alright how to review a book that uses know intelligence at all. Hmmm... well it seems as though the public believes anything they are told. Even if the "facts" told to them are from a fictional "expert." This is the sad state of the world today. The book opens with the death of the curator of the Lourve, The Da Vinci Code is a mystery story and is reframing the way people think about Christianity, the church, and Jesus himself. First off the premise of this book really isn't original. It was done before in the 1970s, but recieved little to no support. Anyway the novel finds Harvard "symbologist" Robert Langdon thrown together with a french cryptologist and the daughter of the slain man, Sophie, as they try to unravel a series of clues hidden in the works of da vinci and they attempt to deny the diety of Christ. Using many made up facts and imaginable 80 gospels which have been disproven as propaganda devised by the atheist, alot of the actual historical facts are inaccurate such as the exact date of the discovery of the dead sea scrolls. The book says they were discovered in the 1950s, which is untrue, they were actually discovered in 1947. It is one thing to offer a novel that posits all sorts of conspiracies and theories that intrigue the imagination and provide fodder for coffee-break discussion, but it is entirely different when a writer puts things into the mouths of his fictional characters and present it as true, proven facts when they hae obviously been disproven. Face it people, everyone that has tried to disprove the diety of Jesus Christ has failed miserably. Christ is the Son of God, okay so get over it. No amount of theories or false religions (i.e. atheism, muslim, agnostic) will change that. Besides the Bible already predicted these things, so we are never surprised with things like this. I'm shocked that many of you people buy into this. I mean art critics have examined da vinci's drawing of the "Last Supper" and every sunday school student knows good and well that their were 12 disciples, and that has been proven, and considering that this was the last supper all the disciples would be their. Because John doesn't have a beard, this guy gets it in his head that this must be Jesus's wife? WHAT RUBISH! Every historical document, ancient diary, and even all art critics say that the figure in the painting is of a young man without a beard. You see that pretty much takes the wind out of this persons argument. Brown's expert is wrong on even simple, basic facts. As I mentioned before, The Dead Sea Scrolls were not discovered in the 1950s but in 1947. They were documents from a Jewish community that thrived during the time just prior to Jesus' life. They not only do not contain any "gospels" of any kind, but make no reference to Jesus at all. There are a few "gospels" among the Nag Hammadi documents, but based on the dating of the documents themselves, the allusions to the Canonical Gospels found in them, and the references found in the Early Church Fathers to the teaching that permeates the Nag Hammadi material, it is reasonable to conclude that these so-called gospels all are much later creations than the Canonical Gospels. The discriptions of Jesus is inconsistence not only with the Gospels, but what is known about Jesus from sources outside of the New Testament. It is true that Jesus is the most inspirational leader the world has ever seen, but He did not personally topple kings. Ultimately, His followers did influence millions for Him, but His personal ministry touched far fewer. Although He is the Messiah and as such the rightful heir to David's throne, His life was not recorded by thousands of His followers. Not only is there no reliable historical evidence of such wide spread recording, but seeing as He lived in a time when writing materials and ability were scarce, it is unreasonable to make such an assertion. Also this moron, Brown, has his "expert" quoting from the Gospel of Philip. There are some Aramaic/Syrian nuances in the work, but it doesn't exist in Aramaic. Apparently Brown intends for us to accept the idea that the original Armaic word that was translated into Greek and then into Coptic always means "spouse." But neither the word in Aramaic, or Greek, or Coptic for "companion" has as its only meaning "spouse." Face it, Jesus wasn't married, and He is the Son of God. So honestly as I have just exposed the stupidity of this lame-brained author, I hope you'll be smart and not support false teachings, and definately do not, under any circumstances, support this wad of junk. PLEASE, next time you try to deny the diety of Christ, at least get the facts strait Brown.

1.0 out of 5 stars They Suck, Dec 29 2003
This review is from: To Serve Man (Audio CD)
This is an insult to any musical genre. This is so boring, and it isn't even heavy! Sorry I like my deathmetal heavy, but this, this is just plain bad. To anyone out there with taste and/or common sense, please refrain from purchasing and/or supporting this lame "band" at all cost! They ammount to a steaming pile of human pheces. This CD is a mountain of cr@p. So please people get some real music like Extol, Nile, ZAO, Crimson Thorn, Suffocation, Cryptopsy, Decapitated, and Origin. Don't waste your time or moeny on this band, as it seems they have nothing to offer. Uninspired, bland, unintellingent, boring cr@p!!! That's just sugar coating how bad this is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh yeah!!!, Dec 29 2003
In my oppinion this is the funniest show ever!!! I love this how. It's so warm hearted and funny. John was, in my opinion, the heart and soul of the show. (R.I.P. John Ritter) This DVD contains the first season, and it's definately worth the purchase price. This is a must buy for those of us who remember or just discovered the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is so not metal-core, Dec 29 2003
This review is from: Calculating Infinity (Audio CD)
What do you get when you mix hardcore, grindcore, and metal together? The Dillinger Escape Plan! This is not metalcore, simply because it is too chaotic to fall into that catagory. They've been dubbed many times as a "chaos-core or chao-core" band and I think that suits them perfectly. So technical, so loud, so fast, so unbelevably insane!!! Chaos-core is definately the right term to describe this group. They are awesome. This may be too intense for the Slipknot kids, but for the extreme music listener this is heaven. A must buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Skunx!, Dec 28 2003
This review is from: Out Of Print (Audio CD)
A face-stomping collection of B-sides, compilation tracks, and assorted out-of-print rarities from California street punk favorites the FORGOTTEN-whose members sideline in the TRANSPLANTS and LARS FREDERIKSEN & THE BASTARDS. A roaring eighteen-track look at the band's early beginnings, delivered tough, rocking, and ferocious. Ska-Punks or "Skunx" as they now have been dubbed, will definately love this. I loved it, and I think you should definately buy this.
