Everyone had a great night celebrating and listening to Forbidden's new cd OMEGA WAVE at Oakland's Soundwave Studios. Delicious food, drinks and the bright green gift bags with Forbidden T-shirts, posters and other Nuclear Blast artist cds in them brought smiles to fans faces. I had a chance to chat with Mark Hernandez, Matt Comacho and Craig Locicero about the new cd, please see the video link below.

Forbidden will be performing in San Francisco at DNA on Saturday, December 11th. Tickets are available at 

Omega Wave is available in the US on Tuesday, October 26th. You can find the cd as well as other great Forbidden merchandise at or as Craig Locicero suggests support your local record store!

BITE and BATUSIS at Thee Parkside in San Francisco

We spent our Sunday night at Thee Parkside in San Francisco checking out BATUSIS (featuring Cheetah Chrome of Dead Boys and Sylvain Sylvain of New York Dolls). But before that we got to see BITE tear it up!!!  Chelsea, Keith, Jon and Hjeffe absolutely made my YEAR!!!! They played some new songs "Go Man Go", "Dive Bar"(dedicated to Thee Parkside of course), “Motopsycho", “Gimme Gimme",  “Rubber Cement", "Razorblade", my absolute favorite "Yesterday's Trash" and "Frankenstein" of Angie Bowie's comp "AIDS BEGONE".  I am pleased to find out these will be on BITE’s upcoming record and CD “Leave Em To Bleed”. It should be out DIY style release just in time for Christmas!!  Guess what I want for Christmas!

Meanwhile, Batusis was amazing. There is nothing quite like having your ears and mind blown by these legends! I still have goose bumps from Sonic Reducer.

Please check out BITE performing tonight, Tuesday, October 19, 2010 at Grant and Green in San Francisco for FREE and also on Saturday, November 13, 2010 at Victory Warehouse in Oakland.
To hear some BITE goto:
