Wanna know who is the up-and-coming talentless band of douchebags that is infesting the world of metal? Well, look no further than Winds of Plague! A band that has no idea who or what they are, their style of music is lame and sounds like everything else out there, and band that is not afraid to brag that their debut made more sales than a fellow band on tour with them (Skeletonwitch and Dimmu Borgir). Let's do the world of metal a favor and bury these losers. Send them back to California where they belong with all the other metalcore/deathcore posers out there.
Yet another heated exchange between myself and a member of WOP (a racial slur to an Italian, no less). Enjoy!
Winds of Plague, I was disappointed with your set. I didn't think you guys fit the billing with the other bands. You had that annoying deathcore sound that is becoming a new scourge in metal. Seriously, it doesn't work. I wrote a blog about the evening in greater detail, even giving you guys a special section and mention. Hope you like it... or not.
Hey Kris, its cool man, we run into hard headed old metal nerds like you in every city but there is plenty of appreciative people that make it all worth our time, and its kinda hard to tell me our sound isnt working when we have sold over 35,000 records and are making a living off the band. I dont waste my time reading blogs, sorry.
And if you dont think we fit on the billing, take it up with Glenn, he put us on the tour himself.
Only 35,000 records? That's not even enough for zinc certification, but you guys are relatively new and inexperienced, so you still have lots of ground to cover. And you should consider reading blogs, you might find something inspiring in it and use it to sharpen your lyrical skills. Since you don't want to find the blog, I'll bring the blog to you, which is going on my site at heavymetalnation. com.
WINDS OF PLAGUE - In every tour, there is always that one band that just doesn't fit with the rest of them. Case in point: 1349 on Carcass's reunion tour as part of a bill that included Suffocation, Necrophagist, Rotten Sound, and Aborted. In this case, the honor belongs to Winds of Plague, who come bearing that shitty and overdone noise called "deathcore," straight out from the west side of the U.S. Whatever you want to call it or them, it was crap, plain and simple. These guys, and one girlie, would have been right at home at the Summer Slaughter Tour. It seems these dudes are going through a Japanese fetish like Trivium, as the bass drumheads are decked out Kurosawa-esque pictures of samurai and in between songs, there are taiko drums being played. That's not going to save these guys from their inadequacy and should focus on getting a fresher sound than what they're doing now. Some good riffs, but ultimately the whole set is a mess. Deathcore = played out! Set Grade: C-
Oh, and I would take it with Glenn, but he was too chicken-shit to come out and meet his fans. Do you people even have fans? Now Skeletonwitch, that's a band full of nice guys making great music. You dorks could learn from them.
(This next entry is where they brag about having more sales than Dimmu Borgir and Skeletonwitch)
35,000 is more then dimus [Dimmu Borgir, sic] first record, and is a pretty good for a debut band with the record only being out 6 months, i love skeletonwitch but they are only at 10,000 and theres has been out a while now. Watch some videos on our youtube page if you question our fan base. I still dont need to read blogs, im on the road living it, your sitting at home typing it. Dork.
Yeah, traveling in a van with a bunch of other losers and chick on her period, eating McDonald's and gas-station food, playing for peanuts and not getting paid. Face it, geek, you'll never a dime of it. Metallica, Pantera and Slayer you will never be, or be as good as. Deal with it. And your set was the worst of the evening. Little Man Glenn needs his head examined. Enjoy your Big Mac and sleeping in a crowded smelly van, I'm off to sleep in a nice warm bed.
Well dude, i never set out to be the next huge metal band, we have already far surpassed my expectations and im still young so im just having fun racking up the life experience. We are getting paid and I already told you i am making a living off this. I own my own house, drive a brand new Audi and no i dont have a job. I am also in a nice hotel room eating room service so once again you can eat your own words. Have fun writing your little blogs and pretending that your opinion matters.
Keep telling yourself that if it makes you and the rest of the band feel better. I saw what you guys were driving at the venue and it wasn't a luxury bus. Actually, many other bands and peers within metal enjoy my blogs and my site, so you can eat your words. I repeat: YOUR SET WAS THE WORST OUT OF THE ENTIRE BILL. And your arrogant, snotty attitude confirms your inadequacy. I will be happy to spread the word of what kind of band this is, a shitty one. Skeletonwitch will go much further than you douchebags. Count on it.
By the way, who is this I'm talking with? The band should really dump your stupid ass for talking too much shit.
Everything i said was in defense of your elitist comments.
Bottom line, no once forced you to watch us, your almost 30 talking shit to a young band via myspace. Get a life, grow up.
You must be the chick in the group, right? Anyway, I do have a life and it involves so many things that matter. My blogging is simply to kill time. A life in a band like yours is not one at all. I would suggest you all go to college and focus on Plan B, because in a couple years no one will give a damn about Winds of Plague. That's the truth.
your talking to kids on myspace, your fucking 30, it doesnt get much more pathetic then that. That is your opinion, and fortunate for us, it means nothing.
That's all you can come up with? How boring! I was expecting more bite, like what your music is trying to be. Instead, it is exactly what your music is, but not intentionally. Boring and lame. Give up and go to school.
