- on the good news front; the Communion had its first practice w/ a full band since Ju-fuck-ly. we jammed with a drummer named Scott, who seemed really enthused and into the whole whatever-the-fuck. His drumming style is very cool and raw, like all the best ugly thrash/death the underground used to offer. Fits us like a lady-bic enema. this was also the first time we jammed with our new bassist Jimmy. his bass tone is pretty bad-ass, super-heavy and solid. i don't wanna jinx it, but this could work out nicely.
- the Communion is also doing a project with Richard Johnson (formerly of Enemy Soil, currently of Drugs of Faith) simply titled "The Communion featuring Richard Johnson". Richard has been sending us tracks he's written on a drum machine, to which we will add guitars, bass, noise, and vocals. this will pretty much be a total grind project. influences/reference points include;
Looking for an Answer, Cripple Bastards, Pig Destroyer, Antigama, Drugs of Faith, Sayyadina, Psycho, pre-Relapse Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Dead Infection, and a bunch of other stuff that message board faggots will say we sound nothing like.
we're also looking to have some guest vocalists lay down some....vocals. all in all it will be a short, fast, dense, pissed-off record. so far two songs have been worked on; "ANDALUSIAN CHERUBS" and "WOMAN IN REFRIGERATOR SYNDROME". it will still be the Communion, just faster and shorter.
all in all we're pretty stoked, especially after the open-face shit sandwich (with no bread...and extra shit) that was 2007. again, don't wanna jinx anything, but 2008 may not be so lame.
- Happy Birthday to Me.
