Well, it looks like the one and only Against Belief is Artist of the Month once again! Only this time, I had absolutely nothing prepared. But, wait! That doesn't mean you all fucked up horribly by picking me, but rather you've convinced me to take the time to write and record a brand new song to add to Against Belief's library! I now present to you one of the better songs I've written:

Panic - Against Belief (http://servercrashers.com/music/Panic.mp3)

When I wrote this song, I felt like Against Belief was missing that super-charged punk song that many other bands seem to have too many of, so I decided to whip this one out. I tried to have the lyrics represent the broken dreams of a dead soldier, but that's as much as I'll go into it for now. There's more intentions behind it, but I'd rather leave things open to interpretation.

Of course, Against Belief has a Myspace (http://www.myspace.com/againstbelief), a Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Against-Belief/36574690147?ref=ts), and you can download our compilation of demos, The Current Essentials (http://servercrashers.com/site_files/Against%20Belief%20-%20The%20Current%20Essentials.rar).

Not included on The Current Essentials are as follows, as they were made after its release:
Moral Dilemma (http://servercrashers.com/site_files/Moral%20Dilemma.mp3)
Against Belief (http://servercrashers.com/music/Against%20Belief.mp3)
Bed Religion (Ricetigers cover) (http://servercrashers.com/music/Bed%20Religion.mp3)
Pudding Basin (Slowdraw The Hungry Eskimo cover) (http://servercrashers.com/music/Pudding%20Basin%20%28The%20Snake%20Song%29.mp3)

Also, here's a live video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2Tra2XU46o) of us playing two Bad Religion covers.

Finally, I'd like to announce to the very few who still follow my music that Against Belief will be releasing a full-fledged, professionally recorded album before the end of this year. So, if you like what you've heard, then I can guarantee that you will love the album.

Congratulations!

Thanks for the staggering three votes, or whatever it was! Hopefully people will actually take the time to check out at least the new song I've made. Here are the lyrics for the song, by the way.

Panic
Pride is such a funny thing; it's all relative
Primitive in its natural form; it's not ours to give
Pride of the nation, defender of our land
A hero in the making; the finest one in the sand.

Your palms are sweaty, it's hot as hell, but you're feeling compelled
By the captains words (they couldn't be worse): "kill or be killed"
And as the sun beats down, you hear a distant sound, the calmness is profound
And then you see a sudden flash; a deafening blast; everyone hits the ground

Panic, Panic, Stand up and attack
Everyone is dead, and no one's got your back
Panic, Panic, Look all around
Only chaos surrounds

Panic, Panic, Last chance to attack
Distortion in your head, and your vision turns black
Panic, Panic, Search all around
Your pride cannot be found

Well, Panic was the kind of song I had never heard from Against Belief and I'm glad I now did. It's a great song and a great addition to the collection.
Congratulations again!

Finally, this thread has seen the light of day *Blitz! glances sideways at Ad8* ;)

Congrats Carson ... definitely well deserved and I'm glad that my request for some new shit has at least been heard.

*ad8 glances at the people who didn't vote so the AotM was a 2-2-vote-faceoff most of the time and then ashamed- and silently excuses for the rest still taking 11 days* :D

Seconded.

By the way: Could it possibly be a bot that automatically votes for the first option in the poll (here Against Belief)?
I think it would be kind of pointless to vote for Against Belief again, and I think I have seen this quite a few times now (the first vote rapidly being voted for Against Belief)

Heck yeah! Excellent choice, I voted for you!

So, does that mean we'll have to have Carson as our special guest on the next podcast? :)

Easy way to find out: have the next poll show the people who voted. Isn't there a way to do that? (I was thinking I'd seen a poll that showed who voted for what somewhere before....)

I'd just like to inform everyone that I never vote for myself.

SO, NO SUSPICIONS!

One day, Ryder decided that he wanted to do a cover of Bad Religion's You. He made the instrumental track, and contacted me about doing vocals. I think that was about 2 months ago.

Well, today I've decided to finally finish the damn thing, and the result is pretty fantastic!

Random Goods Ft. Carson Mauthe - You (http://servercrashers.com/music/You.mp3)

Check out that shit.
