Protect Your Privacy Online!

Getting a VPN is a necessity in today's online world.  The government and other people are trying to look at and monitor what you are doing online, and a VPN prevents anyone from seeing what you are doing.  Hide.me is an excellent choice and one that I personally use.  There are free VPN services, but they will keep logs of what you do, and you will still be vulnerable if someone wants to get to them.  Hide.me is located in Malaysia and are not required to keep any logs.  Basically no one can see what you are doing online, not even them.  They offer blazing fast connections with multiple different types of VPNs.  They have tons of servers too, so you can choose where you want to be connected.  The support staff is great too, and can help you with any questions you have.  There is also a limited free version so that you can try it out before you invest in it, but you will be happy with their service.  Take a minute to check out the video and sign up so you can protect your privacy.  I HIGHly recommend this with the current state of the internet.

Blacklisted - When People Grow, People Go (2015)

Artist: Blacklisted
Country: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Album: When People Grow, People Go
Year: 2015
Genre: Hardcore/Experimental

Their 4th full length "When People Grow, People Go" is set to be released February 10, 2015.  The pre-orders are not up yet, but they have released a track called "Deeper Kind."  I've enjoyed everything this band has released so far, just such a great hardcore act.  Their last album "No One Deserves To Be Here More Than Me" took a more experimental approach, drifting from their short fast songs into more of an atmosphere of interludes.  "When People Grow.." is supposed to be a cross between their old fury and "No One Deserves..."  Check it out and pre-order when it becomes available.

The Banner - Greying (2014)

Artist: The Banner
Country: Bloomfield, New Jersey
Album: Greying
Year: 2014
Genre: Hardcore

I had never listened to this band before, but man this is some dark ass hardcore.  They used to have more of a misfits punky feel from what i've read, but they should definitely stick with the direction they're taking.  The brutal, self-loathing, raw songs with the gloomy interludes really is a beautiful mix on this album.  This is how hardcore should be, as real as life itself.  There is no happiness on this record, but it has all the morbid glory you could ask for.

The Smith Street Band - Throw Me In The River (2014)

Artist: The Smith Street Band
Country: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Album: Throw Me In The River
Year: 2014
Genre: Folk Punk

I've been following this band for a few years now, and nearly everything they release is gold.  "Throw Me In The River" is no exception, and will be a classic.  Nothing but raw, true, feel good music.  This might be their best release to date but hard to say because their discography is so strong.  Great to play around the campfire(like the album cover implies), or just grab a few brews and have a merry listen.

Defend Freedom!

So this 14 year old kid is facing charges that he could go to prison for, just for this photo:

Regardless of your religious views, you probably would agree that this is ridiculous.  They are refusing to drop the charges of "Desecration of a Venerated Object", which could result in up to 2 years in prison.  This is a violation of freedom, just because it makes the people in charge angry.  It's fucking bullshit, so if you agree please sign the petition linked below, and maybe we can stop this insanity.  The only way is if there is enough public outcry, and that is a plausible possibility.  Thanks guys.

Big K.R.I.T. - See Me On Top 4 (2014)

Artist: Big K.R.I.T.
Country: Meridian, Mississippi
Album: See Me On Top 4
Year: 2014
Genre: Rap/Hip Hop

K.R.I.T.'s second full length album "Cadillactica" is supposed to come out in November.  So it's appropriate to put this mix tape out right now, and let us get a little peak at what's to come.  I personally think he's one of the best rappers out right now.  I haven't listened to this yet (just finished downloading it; still on track 1), but I know it'll be good, so i figured i'd go ahead and post it for those of you that didn't know it was coming.  Totally free(obviously) so download it below.

Fuck The Facts - Abandoned (2014)

Artist: Fuck The Facts
Country: Quebec, Canada
Album: Abandoned
Year: 2014
Genre: Grindcore/Death Metal

This is a 3 song EP coming out October 1st.  Their Ep's are always great, and the new song does not disappoint.  They've come so far as a band from when it started as a solo project.  Pick it up on a cassette while they're still available.  Brutal as fuck.

They know i'm sippin on it...


His new album is pretty good, slows down some of his raps and you can hear more lyrics, which isn't a bad thing considering fast rappers in general.  I'm not feeling it as much as some of his other releases, but it's well worth the listen and is still gold compared to alot of the shit out now days.
