New blog from the drunk dude – Metal Mark in Atlanta

August 9th, 2009

It’s been another month and so it’s time for another hazy-eyed narrative from Atlanta’s finest metaller-bothering boozehound, Metal Mark from SkullsNBones.com. This time, he’s been to Mayhem Festival. Ooh err…

What was your highlight of 2008?

What’s the worst thing that happened to you in 2008?
We had a pretty savage tour van fire this summer, which was quite bad. The van was completely torched, and me and Steve (guitarist) were trapped in the back whilst the front was a pure raging inferno! [Read more →]

December 9th, 2008

There was this one time when Brock Lindow stood between us and the sun. We were plunged into darkness but the massive 36 Crazyfists frontman won’t be giving us The Fear this time. Oh no. Piss off, you giant Alaskan! Ha!
