An’ lemme jus’ say: Fuck December 21st in it’s ass. Ain’t no ‘pocalypse, mutha’ fuckas.
Man, there were way to many good albums released this year. I listened to as many as I could but there were some that I just couldn’t get to. There are also some that I listened to, just not enough for them to make my final list. I can’t let this slide, however and I want to give a shout out to new releases by Marty Friedman, The Mars Volta, Birds In Row, Code Orange Kids, Downfall Of Gaia and Krallice. I really wish I could have settled down to check these albums out in full, but I just couldn’t get down to do it.
Before we get to my actual list I would like to thank each and every one of you readers. Without you, I honestly probably would have given this up a long time ago. Sure, on this site I give my opinion on music, but it is really you guys/gals that count. I don’t know how I could repay you all for visiting American Aftermath these past two years. You have really made it worth while. Even the haters who talked shit, I appreciate you fucks also.
Preceding their massive tour with Coheed and Cambria, Between the Buried and Me and Russian Circles will make three stops in East Coast Canada. If there are any Canadian’s that read American Aftermath, I would advise you to drive your ass to one of these shows. Check out the three tour dates below and GO MAN GO.
One of the most highly anticipated tours would be the upcoming Coheed and Cambria headlining tour with Between the Buried and Me and Russian Circles. After the tour was rumored earlier this year I became extremely excited. Possibly too excited. Coheed and Cambria finally took to their Facebook to announce the full touring schedule. The tour will be in support of the band’s upcoming record The Afterman: Descension, which will be released on February 5th. Check out the dates below!!!
More dates have leaked for the rumored Between the Buried and Me, Coheed and Cambria and Russian Circles 2013 tour. The additional dates are as follows:
02/08 Detroit, MI – Fillmore
02/13 Magna, UT – The Saltair
02/17 Portland, OR – Roseland Theater
03/07 Orlando, FL – House Of Blues
03/14 Boston, MA – House Of Blues
In addition to that, Coheed and Cambria have been teasing an announcement to be revealed on November 5th. Could it be about the tour? Who knows? All I know is if they do not come to Texas I will kill myself. I will. Just watch.

Between the Buried and Me was one of the first heavier bands that I really got into that ended up turning my view of music upside down. I remember being transformed into a total fanboy during my sophomore year of High School after listening to Alaska for the first time. At the time I had never heard anything like it and it instilled in me the desire to pursue various forms of extreme music. I was one of those kids who raved about Colors and pretty much the rest of their discographyto their friends but the friends never saw the appeal. You could say I was a BTBAM nerd. But somewhere between The Great Misdirect and now, my interest in them had faded. Not because they had put out a bad album, but because I was becoming absorbed in a plethora of other music and unfortunately BTBAM fell by the wayside. The first installment of the Parallax series aroused my curiosity, but not enough for me to want to listen to the band extensively like I had done way back when. But The Parallax II: Future Sequence completely surprised me. After hearing this seventy minute progressive metal opus my love for Between the Buried and Me was instantly rekindled. This, my friends, may be the most extensive and overall grandiose record they have ever written.
According to The PRP, a rumor is going around that Between the Buried and Me, Coheed and Cambria and Russian Circles will be touring together in early 2013. So far, a February 15th show at the Salt Air in Magna, Utah has slipped out. I like all of these bands and I hope they come to Texas so my inner fanboy can have a mind blowing eargasm. To get everyone pumped up for this I have posted a song from each band below.
How many of you hate your jobs? How many of you can listen to your music while working? Well fortunately (or unfortunately depending on how you look at it), I can answer yes to both questions.
The following is a new segment in which I will give you a playlist based on the songs I find myself listening to over and over again while working. Originally I had planned to do this with full albums, but quickly realized I only listen to a handful of album. So in order to be less redundant I’ve decided to limit myself to ten songs a week. Continue reading to find out what songs I am annoying my co-workers with this week.
Whaddup, Aftermathletes? It’s been a while. Sure, I’ve been away for a little over a month, but best believe I have not given up music all together. No. Make that “hell no.” I have been rocking a lot of shit lately and I’m here to let you know whats up. This month I have been jamming some killer tunes. Let’s see what’s rocking, shall we?
