    I prefer Jordan’s other handle Ratbeard.

    The only good band Dallas Green has been in. City and Colour is soooooooo boring. One good song, because of Gord Downie.

    I saw AOF, Cancer Bays, Billy Talent and Against Me!
    There was a lot if screaming going on.

      Yeah that pic is brutal. Here’s the story:

      “The album art for Crisis features aftermath of the Great Lakes Blizzard of 1977 that hit the Niagara Region and Western New York. The main cover features the famous picture of a frostbitten man, a snowblower clearing the large accumulation of snow, and bare trees during the blizzard. Additional pictures of the event are included inside the album’s booklet. The lyrics from the song “Crisis” are based on this event.”

      This is how the sound is described (accurately, I’d say!):

      “Alexisonfire (pronounced “Alexis on fire”) is a five-piece Canadian post-hardcore band that formed in St. Catharines, Ontario in 2001… They describe their music as “the sound of two Catholic high-school girls in mid-knife-fight” (a reference to their song “A Dagger Through the Heart of St. Angeles”, also the inspiration for their debut album cover art).””

          Me too. I find I’m good for about three tracks of screaming and then I gotta switch it. Unless the music is so damn heavy and tight that I can ignore the vocals…
