★Exclusive Interview 獨家專訪★ HUNDREDTH – 自由意志 The FREE Spirit

「我們相信人有自由意志,不受任何訓示或思維方式束縛。」

“We are about having an free mind, not enslaved to any dogma or way of thinking,” says Hundredth.

美國正在冒起的旋律硬核樂團 Hundredth 不僅停留在音樂層面上,更發起多個世界性慈善項目貢獻社會。樂團現正在 Vans Warped Tour 進密集巡演,很高興他們在百忙中抽空與我們分享新專輯FREE的創作理念,以及他們如何走過黑暗等個人題材。

★ 專訪全文

South Carolina melodic hardcore outfits Hundredth have always done more than just jamming or screaming – the band initiates multiple charitable projects to ensure Indian village people have access to clean water. While the band take a short break from their tight schedule at Vans Warped Tour and talk to us about their latest album FREE and how they ride through darkness.

[NEWS] 360 Degree Wall of Death

不知由何時起,演唱會參與者有用手機甚至迷你攝錄機拍攝現場片段的習慣。西班牙一個樂迷再進一步,以三百六十度攝錄機把 wall of death 紀錄下來,你又對此覺得新奇抑或厭惡?

Most gig goers tend to record clips at live concerts nowadays and some even go with a go-pro minicam. A fan has just pushed this forward with a 360 degree recorder. This 360 degree recording of a wall of death is shot at Resurrection Fest in Spain. Cool or uncool?

[NEWS] Fix Stretched Earlobes With Surgery

*警告:血腥影片*

一名叫 Kurt Barnett 的金屬樂迷被拉長耳垂問題困擾。Kurt 年輕時很喜愛戴耳圈、拉長耳垂的外觀,但隨著他長大,開始在工廠工作後,他的耳圈和耳垂使他無法戴上安全面罩,最後決定前往整形醫生Julie Khanna 進行糾正手術 (手術視頻在上)。你又覺得長耳垂是純粹青年潮流,抑或是終生驕傲?

*Warning: The image is graphic.

A metal fan named Kurt Barnett loved the look of stretched earlobes when he was a teen, but as he got older and got a job doing spray-foam installation he realized the plugs interfered with the gas mask he has to wear for safety. He went to plastic surgeon Dr. Julie Khanna for the corrective procedure. You can check out the video for the surgery details. Do you think stretched earlobes is a teen trend or a life-long statement of who you are?

I am proud and excited to finally be able to do what I love.”

3年前今天,我們失去了一個朋克界舉足輕重的人物—— No Use For A Name 主將 Tony Sly —— 一個在八、九十年代美國南加洲朋克運動中非常活躍的樂手。Tony,我們永遠懷念您。Never Forget Tony Sly.

3 years ago today, we lost a punk rock legend, one of those who shaped the SoCal punk sound. Tony, you will be missed.
