I would like to chalk this up to the benefits of clean living, but who am I kidding? It’s just more of the dumb luck with which my entire life seems to have been blessed.
So, I’m sitting around feeling all mopey and disgusted because of some news I saw this morning that turned an inspiring metal story into what looks like a big fuckin’ con job . . . which will be described in tomorrow’s first post. And on top of that, a run of five straight days of glorious weather in Seattle has been interrupted with some gray dankness up in the sky this morning. In a nutshell, I needed some cheering up, pronto.
And then what should appear in my e-mail in-box at just the right moment but a message from Finnish NCS fan jeimssi with a link to a brand new Mors Subita video, which includes some film made by jeimssi himself.
I pressed play, and suddenly I perked right up, I got the big smiley face, I banged my fuckin’ head. I barely resisted the urge to rip off my headphones, grab a brew, put the music on the external speakers, and start finding shit in my house to bust up — an urge I resisted at the last minute only after remembering that it’s 7:45 in the fucken morning and my wife is still asleep. That was a near thing, as in a near-death experience, as in yours truly coming THAT close to being the victim of a spousal homicide.
The video is a montage of clips from a Mors Subita tour that includes electro-charged Mors Subita metal, drinking, dry heaving, crotch-grabbing, more metal, drinking, hamming it up, more metal, bus-riding, drinking, and drinking.
I’m still waiting for a video of a Finnish band discussing particle physics instead of . . . drinking . . . you know, just for a change of pace. Not that a discussion of particle physics would be more fun than this video, but it would make it less likely that I would become a victim of spousal homicide, because one of these days I’m going to cross the line before I gather my wits and I won’t even be around to write my obituary for NCS.
Here’s the video, and for my review of the band’s killer 2011 album Human Waste Compression, go here. And below that I might as well also include the Mors Subita track that made our list of 2011’s Most Infectious Extreme Metal Songs.
