Romancing the Stoned

So I was looking over what you guys have been downloading (and not downloading) and I think your true demographic makeup is starting to reveal itself it to me. First off, you guys are RACIST. You like it white, seriously, as white as possible. Also, you guys are huge nerds (no surprise) and for the most part, a lot closer to 40 than 20.

this is you

I can put 2 and 2 together. You don’t want Heavy Psyche, or filthy Doo Wop, or even Drunk Horse 7”s (idiots). All you really want, is music from COMMODORE 64.

These jams are actually totally sweet.

This album was a novelty for about the first 5 minutes. After fifteen it was a new favorite. Sweet, melodic jams abound.

What can I tell ya? Hip-hop fucking sucks. Although not as much as Reggae or NSBM.

While we're sort of discussing racial stereotypes, why don't more black folks make metal? I mean, there's plenty of whites, Mexicans, Semites, East Asians, what-have-you making rap music AND metal... Katon and those dudes in Suffocation seem pretty cool...Why don't inner youth emulate them?

Damn straight we're a bunch of racists. The human race! Haha. Just kidding. I really hate spics. It's OK, so do Cobras & Manslaughter. Thing is alright too. He's so white you can't tell where the sock ends and the leg begins. Kill the muds.

I think one of the reasons that you don't get more black metal musicians is down to the cultural pressure that they're under. My experience during my time in the US showed me that the black community at large isn't really terribly supportive of black people who make non 'urban' music. Actually, THE worst genuine racism I have ever experienced was black on white racism in the US. I knew a couple of guys there who were flat-out told that they could EITHER be friends with their home-boys OR friends with white folks. Yet they didn't consider it racist. Weeeeeeeird. In my experience there was a LOT of mistrust and a 'get-them-before-they-get-us-don't-trust-whitey' attitude that I found REALLY uncomfortable. It really isn't like that here. I lived in the biggest black community in Liverpool for years and NEVER had ANY trouble from anyone who wasn't white.
Anyway, black folks don't NEED to make metal, Al Morris from Iron Man has chops enough for EVERYONE.

First of all, my fave metal band with black dudes in it are Stone Vengeance, those dudes are tight.

Also, I'm black. Not white. My face says white, my ass says black.

"Crazy Comets" is the jam.
