PostSubject: WHERE IS EVERYONE????   Mon Jul 03, 2017 5:01 pm

I know it is summer and everyone tries to get outdoors, and the music scene just seems to have virtually dried up with the heat this year.

But where is everyone?  I don't care if we are talking music or the effects of radiation from the warp drive on green plants and Vulcans. The house seems empty!

Warp Drive and Vulcans don't exist.

It has been incredibly quiet here lately.
I've noticed that the CMR is a bit dead as well.

I have to confess that the new music I am interested in is ridiculously sparse this year.  We are almost exactly half way through the year and I have purchased only 5 new releases this year (one of them a remaster of the origin Mo1/MO album....so technically only 4 new albums).  Based on Angelic Warlord's "Release Dates" list it looks like there are less than 5 more expected that I'm even interested in.  I find that kind of sad (not that I need 20 new albums every year....)

Then factor in that message boards like ours are a dying mode of social media.  I know everyone seems to love facebook (and I enjoy it for keeping up with family and select bands), but I don't think that platform works very well at all for group pages.

Typically, the scene tends to slow down a bit during the summer and then picks up in the fall as the holidays approach.

A lot of the upcoming releases I am most looking forward to are re-issues: XALT (Dark War), Guardian (Fire & Love) and Fear Not (self titled).  I also anticipate new albums from Dynasty, Deliverance and Crimson Bridge Ministry.

Halfway through the year and my favorite album is the new Biogenesis.  Outside of that, I have also liked new albums from Signum Regis, The World Will Burn, Jacobs Dream and Sunroad.  But when you think about it, 2017 has been the year of the re-issue when you also factor re-releases of albums from Sacred Warrior (Masters Command) and Haven (III).

It has indeed been rather quiet, still I visit here once or twice a day.  New releases are few and far between at the moment....

Can't speak to the music side - most of what I've picked up this year has been older (Bob Dylan, the complete Stevie Ray box set, some BB King and Hendrix). 

As far as me not being around... between my wife being gone for two weeks, my grandmother passing and helping my parents with that, cleaning house and trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong with my job search (or maybe, what's wrong with me), I just haven't had time. In fact, I've only got ten minutes to be here now before we head to see some family for a barbecue.

I have the Crimson Bridge Ministry CD preordered.  I'll probably get the Xalt as well since I only have a copy I made from a cassette on CD-R.  This has to be better.

As for Guardian, I had already remastered it for myself and am satisfied with it.  I may also run Fear Not and Haven III through the software just to get updated sounds.  I don't really think I need new versions of those.  I am not going to get any of the Sacred Warrior or Deliverance remasters, either.

I may not get the new Deliverance.  If it is too speedy, then I just won't waste my time.  I am one of the fans that loved the middle era of Deliverance and didn't care for the first 3 albums.  I don't really want a return to form with them.

If they were doing a rock record instead of the euro-pop stuff, I'd be all over the new Mad At The World.  Since they are going after the style I didn't like, I am not touching that.

Oh wow Fear Not that is very cool. I didn't know it was being reissued. 

Been busy the past several days still on long weekend today and return to work Thursday. Only a 2 day work week! But have been busy on the he front. 

Who is reissuing Fear Not?

Roxx Records.  Scott Waters is doing the cover artwork and CD layout.  I am guess, but do not know for sure, that Cliffy is doing the remaster.

Life's been pretty hectic for me too and yeah, there hasn't been much in the way of new music lately.  However, there is a fair bit that I'm pretty excited for:

Adorned Graves
Dalit
Fleshkiller
Melech
Pantokrator (I think?)
Renascent (re-release on CD of their second album)
The Slave Eye
Vials Of Wrath
Within Silence (not sure when)

Where is Vonnie ? 
I even sent her a message on FB and haven't heard from her. Kind of worried.  Sad

Makes two of us.  I also messaged her and have gotten no response.

Her Facebook hasn't been updated since Jun. 2, and the last message I got from her was June 11 when I was on the mission trip to Memphis.

I'm going to be bold enough to say, something bad has happened and we need to pray for her. This is not like her. She never goes off the grid for more than a couple days. Does anyone here have a closer relationship with her ? Perhaps try contacting her cell phone or family member ? I'm really worried.

I'm worried too. She may have a phone number listed on her Facebook profile. I'd look but I'm not on there anymore.

She has been out of communication for a week or so when on vacation, but she usually lets one of the mods/admins know she is leaving.  I sent her a PM more than a week ago and haven't heard from her.  Hopefully she is just taking a break from the internet, but I will be praying for her anyway.

None of her kids or her husband were in her list of Facebook friends.  So, I left a message on her page asking anyone with info to please let us know what is going on.  

That's all I know to do.

I also got a message from her saying she was fine and had been on vacation.  I've never been so glad to hear from her.

I've known some of you guys for over a decade.  I've known Vonnie for even longer.  She and I met through the original Napster (downloaders, GASP!) and then we switched to another site when they took the bullet.  Then, we both joined this crazy site called the Christian Metal Realm when it was on EZ Board.  I started this place a year or two after that on EZ Board and then moved over when CMR did.

We've known each other a LOOOOOOOOOOONG time.  I just made us sound old, didn't I?
