If you've heard of marco pitruzzella, then he's basically famous for his ridiculous blast beats... it originated in more extreme music. here's a good example.

marco pitruzzella at work.



the first actual blast beat starts at about 25 seconds into that.

If you're being serious




I wasn't. I was making fun of the fact that a lot of people throw around the term and can identify it by ear, but apply it way more liberally than it should be.

Lol, well now i feel like a moron for typing all that up.



CHEERS! :D



and since i'm a drummer, and can personally play songs with blast beats (I.E. Arsis and stuff like that), please don't think I'm one of those people just throwing around the term. XDThis Message Edited On 11.12.07

Ire Works is just sort of poopy by comparison.


Probably could have picked a better word. :lol:

[quote=myself being going to wikipedia.com]I'm right between a 2 and a 2.5 but after reading a bunch of positive reviews on other websites I figured I'd even out the playing field by rounding down[/quote]



Wow I didn't realize how positive the reviews were until I went here.

Why did you not use "Dire Works" as the summary seriously

It was between Mire Works, Tired Works, and Dire Works obviously. Also I was thinking that intended reading of the album title was "works of anger" but if you treat "works" as a verb as in, "hey using blastbeats works pretty well on that song" it's sort of funny. Like, oh ya being brutal and bring the shred works pretty well, go DEP!

I agree with the Panasonic Youth pt. 2 thing. Every song I heard on here just made me think of that track.

Hey Subtle, out of curiosity what's your reaction to this album other than witty humorjokes about possible headlines.

Everything I've heard has sucked miserably and I would say i heard about half the album
It just depresses me to listen to them suck that bad so i generally can't make it much farther than that

I feel like everyone who was around for Irony Is a Dead Scene or earlier is just scratching his/her head.

It's just because Chris was the most important member of the band
The most interesting stuff on any of their albums is the drumwork, even when Patton was with them he couldn't outshine how nuts Chris was
And CI obviously was all about the drums
