No way in hell?

Got an excited sms early this morning from our metal correspondent in the outer limits of Gopeng - Tuan Anba. Apparently, extreme metal act Rotting Christ have announced their 2009 tour & we are part of the itinerary!!! Its even confirmed on the band's official website (http://www.rotting-christ.com/tour.php).

But me is telling Anba there's no way in hell (excuse the pun) that the authorities will allow these longhairs to play a show. The moniker alone is enough to cause offence. Anyways, the gig is scheduled fer 5 May, 2009 @ Melawati Stadium, Shah Alam.

So in the meantime, you can busy yerself by downloading some of their LPs. You can find most of their discography here: http://lordmessiah.wordpress.com/2007/12/21/rotting-christ-greece/ .

Fer a sample of these Greek black metallers, watch this vid:




ps: Apologies to any of me Christian friends who are offended by this posting.

pps: Let's just say fer whatever perverse reason, the gig is allowed to happen, anyone going? Me is definitely on fer this!

i doubt too la. with their image and as you mentioned, their monicker will not go down well with the local authority. and they'll never get on any stage on malaysian soil.

there have been talks by the way that Korn will be the main acts to feature in sunburst music festival. if its true, better save up at least 2oo bucks if you wanna catch them live here. this is Korn i tell ya, you wouldnt wanna miss it. will find out more if they are indeed heading to our shore.

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

what pisses me off the most is international rock acts are known to stop in our neighbouring countries but ours. and all we ever get are fag acts like Rain, MLTR, Rihanna etc. lancau la wei...

anfield devotee said...

Yup, me agrees. But stranger things have happened.

Keep us posted on Korn.

And to all the regulars here, today (2 Mar) is Dato' Kerp's b'day!!!

Tuan Kerp Happi Birthday...

anfield devotee said...

anba: Ahhh . . . fook em la. The more the authorities try to ban stuff, the more popular it becomes!

Besides, me is not really concerned anymore as we no longer have to rely on local distributors of yore like Rock Records to spread the sounds f Roadrunner, Earache, Noise, SPv eyc.

Almost everything you want is but a mouse click away.

However, me is pretty certain the gig will not go ahead. If it does, me will be there.

Thanx fer the heads up.

Tinesh said...

First of all, KERP!!!! HAPYY BDAY MACHA!!!

no.2, Like Mayhem and Megadeth (seriously, they cant tell diff between black and thrash?) I doubt this guys will be allowed to play here.

no3. Im goin to watch KORN!!!!!

Achilles said...

Kerp: Happy Birthday

AD: I saw the Sunburst Ad in the SUN newspaper 2 days back and they did feature Korn as one of their bands.

As for rotting Christ, me also doubt they will come down-lah. Don't mean to sound discouraging, but just me opinion.

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

thanks all for the wishes, brothers!

so its almost confirmed Korn to strut their stuff to their legions of Malaysian fan. i'm waiting for the confirmation first before committing myself. there's every possibility they might cancel their appearance at the 11th hour.

senorita.. said...

metal gig ah unker? when n how much?

premo said...

Yep Korn is performing at Sunburst. http://www.sunburstkl.com.my/v1/

Am going. Already got my tickets:) If those bastards cancel last minute I will make sure that the office of Pineapple Concert Organizers receive rotting corn! Hehe :P

anfield devotee said...

achilles: Yes, me knows. Me said so meself in posting that me is quite sure it won't happen. But if it does . . .

Premo: Korn - Where did you get tickets & how much?

Kerp: Korn?

senorita: If thr Rotting Christ gig does happen, it'll be 9 May at Stadium melawati, shah alam & price shouldnot be more than RM70.
Most of the dudes here are going fer the sunburst fest which will feature Korn. You in fer that?

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

yes, korn.

eh premo, i'm telling you, if they cancel last minute you wont get a refund bcos the organiser has got other bands lined up. so you have to settle for indon/local fag acts instead...kihkihhh...

anfield devotee said...

kerp: that's what me is fooking worried about. Am not gonna waste RM400 on a gig where the headliner doesn't show.

Avtually its me wifey who is the Korn fan, not me.

premo said...

Sunburst ticket prices and venue info are all on the website. I got mine pre-sale for RM143 tho from a fren at Junk magazine.

Let me know who's goin la - then we can all form an otai headbanging circle for the botak and balding hehe :P Heard that the only beers that will be selling are Tuborg. Yucks!

Senorita: How's the apartment hunting coming along? Goin to sunburst or not - N.E.R.D performing ooo...

Tix are going for about RM200 a pop now and will rise to RM250 at the door on the day of the event. & Tuborg? Thanks but no thanks, I have my limits.

anfield devotee said...

Premo: So still can get the RM143 tickets?

Bernard: Hip flask?

Bernard said...

Hip flasks are for unrepentant alcoholics.

premo said...

Nope - 143 all out.

anfield devotee said...

bernard: Enjoy yer Tuborg . . .

Premo: Fook!

Praxidice said...

No way man. I can bet.

But hey, if they do manage to slip in, I'm in.

anfield devotee said...

praxidice: Cool. Somehow me thinks this gig, if it does happen, will be a lot more fun than sunburst which will be filled with posers.

However, me still wants to take me wifey fer Korn but am worried theypull out last minute & that's RM400 wasted.

Praxidice said...

I'm defs missing the korn gig. Unfortunately I've to get back to penang on the 21st itself.

Wot korn might not make it either now? WTF really...

SLACKER said...

conclusion: is korn playing or not?

when's the sunburst event? - i have my doubts... i fear it'll be another cock up event like during the rentak asia back in 2000

anfield devotee said...

sunburst is 21 mar. Got a feeling Korn will NOT be playing . . . but that's just a hunch.

Just worried as tickets are so expensive.

So me takes it you are not interested in the underground gig then . . . ?

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

if Jay Chou/Rain/harlem Yu coming then i'll be one of the first to set up my tent at the ticket counter.

amoi galore beb...muahahahaaa...

anfield devotee said...

kerp: brudder, please don't even joke about it. You haven't been dragged to a Canto-pop gig against yer wishes. Amoi or not, its a bloody crime against humanity.

BLOODY FOOKING TORTURE OF THE nTH DEGREE!!!

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

anfield devotee said...

kerp: Padan muka. This is karma fer all yer homophobic comments . . .
