    Another band I will help crowdfund, the first being Dog Fashion Disco.

  • WURST

    Haha, weak.

  • asull24

    And all i was, was something beautiful…

  • cma3585

    If their last EP was reminiscent of their previous material, I would’ve helped out. That said, it was relatively atrocious and I don’t want to help them create and release more of that.

    • Alkeyhalikk

      Agreed

    • kalima666

      i agree in a way although i’ve seen them twice in the past 6 months and they are still a really great sounding live band and the songs off the EP sound a lot better live… but i get your point. even their old stuff still better than the crap coming out these days.

    Fund our drugs!

    say what ya will, but head charge where the only nu metal band that Rick Rubin put on his label.

    but afterward head charge fucked it up lol, any who thier album war of art was one of the best albums released within that time period, gave a breath of fresh air to music besides, “rollin rollin rollin”

    • RUREADY2JIGGLE?

      System of a Down would like a word with you.

      • musicalsnob

        I soppose I deserve that for over looking soad, even though I have bothered listening to them back in the day… They completely got lost on me back then, when I seen the video for war and he’s frolicking on stage or what ever… I could not get into it, some of it sounded okay to ke but most of it no… I considered them pop metal, head charge was heavier and it seems to for right in with my cd collection along with slayer and danzig all having the upside down insignia

      • musicalsnob

        Crap my typing is way the fuck off on my phn lol

    • Stereotypical Evil Archer

      Musicalsnob didn’t do his homework!

    • MyDarkPassenger

      Let’s not all anoint Rick Rubin a god just yet anyways. Have you heard that Lil Jon song where they sample Raining Blood? Dudes definitely made a bad decision or two in his day.

      • musicalsnob

        Rick Rubin is a bit of an icon in music, he’s been there in alot of the trends throughout music. He produced slayer, and danzig whose popularity was solely based on winning over peoples and word of mouth true underground with no radio airplay….

        the common person was listening to metallica, because they played it on radio, where as slayer and danzig were jus rumours getting exposure through mix tapes in my area at the time.

        Rick Rubin has good track record in my opinion and that’s what it all is opinions…

        in case you didn’t know, Trent reznor while writing the fragile had gone to Rick Rubin for guidance and advice, Rubin may have not produced it but he did somewhat have a hand in the creation process

  • wtf

    I will gladly help on this. War of art was awesome…Feeding has some good songs…and the latest ep had Writhe, Sand, and Set yourself on Fire..only 3 songs that were good on it. Writhe is a different and well written song. Sand has got some awesome screaming on it. Saw them live recently as well….had a blast.

    • MyDarkPassenger

      There were only 3 good songs on that EP? what a rip off…

    • spliff

      3 out of the 5 songs sucked? Such a poor success rate. They need to work harder next time,

      • wtf

        2 out of the 5 sucked…one because it was a cover song(Rock n Roll Nigga), and the other because it was like STP’s Big Bang Baby clap along song (Sugars of Someday). It was just a too happy vibe for them.

  • MyDarkPassenger

    If I was in a band, besides getting balls deep in a ton of groupies, I would try to make some more creative perks. Its always get the album, get a poster, pay $500 for the privilege of buying us dinner, get a half-assed guitar lesson at 10x the going rate from an instructor 1/10 as talented, pay us $10,000 to come trash your house (and make sure dinner is ready).

    The golden ticket thing would be cool if I ever had the slightest confidence that a band who needs crowd funding would be around 5 years from now.

    • Mikabass

      Couldn’t agree more

  • kalima666

    i was thinking about this too… 500 bucks to play with the band… first time i saw them was packed house next time it was probably like 40 people i think because venue and weekday lol… but still i think some of the price points are off.

    I can’t believe AHC got this many comments. The only time I listened to them was in the 10th grade my girlfriend liked them a bunch. I saw them open on Pledge Of Allegiance in NJ Halloween night 2001. By the time the tour got to NJ Rammstein( who supposedly had the sickest stage show at the time) and Mudvayne who I was sick into at the time dropped off the tour from illness (Rammstein) and Rehab (Mudvayne bass). So I just saw AHC SOAD and Slipknot. In that order. Also, it was 1 month after 9/11 in the NY NJ area so like half of the people didn’t show up. At the time every large gathering was considered a “Hot Spot” or some shit and people were scared to go to things.

    • musicalsnob

      but god damn you still remember… or is it because of the girl?

  • IamChristian

    I remember everything.
