Inquiries from my Inbox: Jason writes: “Hey! Last night, I went to see Sepultura. The first openers were all bands I knew and somewhat liked. Most of them played tight, well-rehearsed, energetic and interesting sets. But when Sepultura came on, it took about a minute to realize that they were working on a completely different level than the openers. They were tight, well-rehearsed, energetic and interesting but they had something else that I can't describe. It was just electric. I'd chalk it up to liking the band and knowing their material - and I sure there's some of that - but I'm really not THAT big of a Sepultura fan.”
Random Musical Thought: from Psalm 33:3, “Play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts.”
