Hey Ray, I was just wondering if the Pit record store was still open? I'm going to Colorado in a couple weeks and wanted to go there. I noticed that they haven't had a magazine out for a while and I know you write for them so I was just wondering if you knew anything.

sorry for the late get-back, brothers...

Mark, I think you played me Halloween once but I remember it more for the album title...and I have Flight 666 on its way for review here...can't wait

cjk, very cool list and let me know your thoughts on DT and DH...I reviewed both elsewhere and gave both good marks...DT was QUITE impressive

Dpth, do you agree with that? Also, Green Jelly? Wow! Little pig, little pig, let me in!!!!

Ian, good luck on the final mix. To my knowledge the entire Pit endeavor is disabled and in total limbo. I heard it MIGHT go online again in the future but nobody's checked in and I only talk with a couple of the writers now and then

Count, glad you dug the new's fucking badass, definitely making my Top 10 of the year

Klepto, you, me and Dpth are all on Tyr...are you guys digging it? I thought it was their heaviest one yet. From my Hails & Horns review: "Impressive even for these guys..."
