the year where those of us fortunate enough get to huddle together
with family and friends over a delicious turkey carcass (or tofurkey,
turducken, chicken - whatever floats your boat) and say thanks for all
that we have been grateful for in the past year.
Those of us in the EARACHE family might exude more metal than Iron
Man, but that doesn't mean we can't stop and give thanks to that which
we feel made us better, stronger and made our lives more meaningful
over the past year.
Here's what some of our artists have been thankful for in 2008:
ORDER OF ENNEAD guitarist/vocalist, Kevin Quirion - "I'm thankful for
the opportunity to bring our music to the masses."
OCEANO guitarist, Andrew Mikhail - "I'm thankful for my life being as
hard as it is/was, without it I wouldn't have been as strong as I am
BONDED BY BLOOD vocalist, Jose "Aladdin" Barrales - "I'm thankful for
MUNICIPAL WASTE vocalist, Tony Foresta - "I'm thankful I get to watch
football on Thursday."
CAULDRON vocalist, Jason Decay - "I'm thankful I'm not crippled."
When even a Canadian citizen like Jason Decay can still be thankful
for something a month after his country's Thanksgiving occurred, it
goes to show that giving thanks is not only a pretty metal thing to
do, but it is also a good feeling felt worldwide. For something even
more metal, though, check out EARACHE's newest special release,
