I was going to wait ’til after midnight here in Cascadia to post this, but what the fuck. It’s already after midnight everywhere in the world except the Americas. So, on behalf of all your embarrassing friends at NCS, I want to wish everyone out there a Happy New Year. May 2012 be better for you than the year just ended. Take care of yourself, look after your friends, and don’t let the bastards get you down.
And yeah, I know what that photo looks like. We do like our massive ejaculations here in Seattle. If you’d prefer a less ejaculatory photo, I like the one after the jump, too. It has pretty colors. There are also three songs after the jump, including a brand new version of the New Year’s traditional featuring lead guitars by Jeff Loomis. Rock on.
First song:[audio:https://www.nocleansinging.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/24-Auld-Lang-Syne-Explicit.mp3|titles=24 – Auld Lang Syne]
Second song (guitarist Aaron Smith of Seattle’s own 7 Horns 7 Eyes made this metal version of “Auld Lang Syne”, with Jeff Loomis (ex-Nevermore) playing the leads. It went up on SoundCloud a few hours ago and it’s pretty sick):[audio:https://www.nocleansinging.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/01-Auld-Lang-Syne.mp3|titles=01 Auld Lang Syne]

Third song (because this is how we should be walking into the new year — with horns to the fucking sky):[audio:https://www.nocleansinging.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/01-Horns-To-the-Sky.mp3|titles=Byfrost – Horns To the Sky]
