Transmission 7.2.2012

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 2, 2012 by everythingwentblack

I hit Martyrdoom Fest this weekend with Mike Scondotto. Mainly, I was there to see Dead Congregation play, but there were several other bands on the bill that I was interested in seeing. I missed Evoken and Encoffination, but caught Sanguis Emperem and Grave Miasma, both delivering intense sets. As I watched the death metal mayhem unfold, the idea that if Immolation, Morbid Angel and Incantation hadn’t existed, this whole scene would vanish. I don’t mean that in a negative way, it’s just a testament to how deeply those three bands have impacted the underground death metal scene.

Andrew and I have been busy writing new material; we haven’t done any shows since the run of dates with Ulcerate; it feel like a lifetime has passed since we’ve played live. The summer will be mostly downtime for us, spent working on new jams, we’re hoping to be back on the road in the fall. This weekend we’re going to be heading up to Boston to track two songs with our old friend Tim. One of the songs, ASHES, will be released as part of the Decibel flexi-disc series so for those of you who are subscribers to that publication, you’ll be received a new Tombs song. The other is a cover of “Heroes / Helden” by David Bowie. Most of you have probably heard the track, but there is a great alternate version of the song that came out on the soundtrack for the German film Christiane F. That’s the version we’re recording.

I’m going to try some new things on future podcasts; trying a little more structure. Anothe Everything Went Black Podcast will be posted in the next week or so, so please check it out. I have a really special guest lined up for the next episode. Also, if you enjoy the stuff we have going on, please subscribe via iTunes and leave comments. It helps us out immensely.


Transmission 1.23.2012 Musings in the Garden

Posted in Podcast, The Trip with tags , , , , , , on January 24, 2012 by everythingwentblack

One of the cooler things about doing this podcast is that there are no rules; it’s a free-form, open-ended discussion that develops naturally and often times takes unexpected paths and locks into strange orbits; just like any other conversation among friends.

Mike Repasch Nieves (Junius) and eric Jernigan (City of Ships) stopped by this past Sunday afternoon and we hung out for a bit, talked about The Road, Germans, The creative process and The End Game.


Transmission 5.17.2011 Official Podcast Launched

Posted in Podcast, The Trip with tags , , on May 17, 2011 by everythingwentblack

This is a quick, sort of “non-transmission” just to indicate that I launched the official Everything Went Black Podcast yesterday. Future episodes will be available on the site or through iTunes (pending approval). I’ll alert everyone once it goes up on iTunes, so you can subscribe if you’re interested.

The first episode is the Serbian Film discussion with Mike Scondotto, episodes 2 and 3 are just archives of the Rollins and Off! interviews; at this point I’ve beaten those two pieces into the ground, but I wanted to present them for anyone that doesn’t necessarily follow the blog. Mike and I had a lot of fun, he’ll be joining me on future episodes so stay tuned!!

Transmission 5.16.2011 PODCAST Episode 001

Posted in Podcast, The Trip with tags , , , , on May 16, 2011 by everythingwentblack

You can download the first episode of the EVERYTHING WENT BLACK Podcast. I did it sort of on the fly with Mike Scondotto (Inhuman, The Last Stand) after watching a screening of A SERBIAN FILM at the Alpine Theater in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. When Mike told me that the movie was showing at a mainstream theater I was blown away and committed to making the trek out to Bay Ridge last night to watch it on the big screen. This first episode is available on the Soundcloud but future episodes will available on a more legit stream

I’d never been to the Alpine before. Mike met me outside. When I rolled up I looked at the marquis and noted that A SERBIAN FILM was playing along side such blockbusters as Thor, Fast Five, Rio…you get the idea. It had been showing since Friday, and no one had picketed the movie or attempted to have it shut down. Mike and I entered the theater. The movie started with an audience of 6 and by the time the lights went up, the attendance was down to 4; we lost 2 people along the way.

Afterward, Mike and I went to Daisy’s Diner on 5th Avenue to have a late dinner and discuss what we’d seen.
