Gira is everything people accuse Draiman, Mustaine, Ulrich, Sixx, etc of being, but he gets some sort of free pass because he is some sort of indie incubus god who allegedly grew up on the streets or something.


So all that shit is actually true

cause those stories seemed more like dumb urban legends

I actually like most stuff on here except for the title track and 93 Ave. A Piece Of The Sky could also be a bit shorter.

From an interview during the Seer press cycle:

"BR: How do you feel about bands still being influenced by you?

MG: Well, usually they're pretty awful so I'm not flattered, I'm kind of indifferent. But, yeah...that's how I feel about it, ha ha. I just heard this tremendous cover of a song from 'My Father...' called 'Reeling The Liars In' by this tremendously talented soul singer from Canada, a black woman. She goes under the name Cold Specks. Look it up on YouTube, she did a really beautiful version of it, and it's the first Swans cover I'd ever heard that I liked (you can watch this at the bottom of the page). The song had sort of a gospel melody, and she took that and really made it gospel and coupled with the words, it was really powerful. That's the kind of thing I appreciate, when someone takes something and puts it in a new context in the world; that shows creativity."

its overloaded for sure, yes, but in it's highest moments its really exceptional. Hopefully eventually I find a way to give this a 3.5 because it really deserves it most of the time, but spends too much muddled and dicking around too

and yea toxin thats pretty accurate actually look at channing its a 5 freeman
