I feel so bad for the modern DJ today

It seems the further we walk down the road the worse FM radio seems to get. From time to time I’ll hop in the car for a short run to the liquor store and every now and then I will actually turn on the radio. It’s the same thing, time after time and I know as I’m pushing the “On” button that I will soon be disappointed.

Preset #1, commercial, preset #2, commercial. Then I hit the scan button…the stereo searches and then finds a station, commercial, NEXT, crappy pop channel playing Robin Thicke for the 9 trillionth time, NEXT, commercial, NEXT, Robin Thicke again. WTF!

By now I’m at my destination, I click the “Off” button, not to repeat this process again for another two months.

It’s fucking sad. Even if I do manage to find a station that might have an actual guitar on it, it’s some worn out Zeppelin song or Bad Company or some shit like that and the saddest part of it are all the DJ’s. I feel so bad for the modern DJ today. They are the human amongst the robots, pointless in their use, needless in their ability, knowing they have no real job, just trying to collect a pay check in a field that used to have a purpose.

Since the dawn of radio, the DJ played a poignant roll at the station. They pulled albums from the vast rooms of LP’s; they designed their show’s format and helped mold the trends. They discovered the next hits and helped field the industries new talents.  But those days are long gone. Now, much like the robot lawyers at the record companies, they have no real purpose. Yeah, they still lead the next block of songs or commercials and they somehow have to sound thrilled to hear “Blurred Lines” again, by they have no soul. Just another gear in the transmission, having their flesh crushed under the weight of the machine, blood and guts squeezed between the moving parts.

With the death of Casey Kasem comes the death of all DJ’s. DJ, stands for Disc Jockey. There are no discs and there is nothing to Jock Up! The Auto DJ 5000 chooses 1 of 200 songs that will be played in a vile never ending commercial designed and micro managed simply to pick your wallet. Nothing more and nothing less, FM radio is a marketing tool carefully orchestrated to separate you from your money. If you are fool enough to turn it on then you are subjecting yourself to the subconscious pick pocketing that these machines were manipulated to do and that’s TAKE!

This brings me to my show on Kosher Metal, a show without commercial influence, a show without the Auto DJ 5000 and a show that has little or no outside influence.

Like the days gone by, I pick songs that I would want to hear on FM radio. Songs that if I could get in my car, turn the key and go for a drive, this is what I would want to hear.

I never play a song I haven’t heard before. I never play a song that I have been told to play by management (as if someone at Kosher Metal would ever do such a thing, LUDACRIS!). I simply play what ROCKS!

In the end, FM is not only dead, it’s been dead for decades and it’s never coming back. The good thing is, you don’t have to be part of that shit. You can simply download the Kosher Metal app to your phone, or the Tune In app and search for Kosher Metal and listen through your car stereo while streaming. No Robin Thicke, no bullshit commercials for lawyers or used cars or local dentists or Walmart or McDonalds…JUST MUSIC and for that matter, JUST METAL! The way it’s supposed to be!

The new album is DONE!

The new album is finished! After almost a years worth of work by Jon DuBose, Jamie Page and myself it is finally finished. There is still no release date, but that information will come soon enough. Stick around as I will be debuting a brand new song on my radio show on Kosher Metal (www.koshermetal.com) in the next few weeks.

The best way I can describe this album is it is a 2 hour journey in just of 43 minutes. It is a mixture of Speed, Doom and Death Metal that is punishing, dimensional, grinding, mean and powerful. Even though it was a lot of work, it was an amazing journey to create and I’m looking forward to releasing it out to the world.

Stay tuned as details will be released soon.

Another Song Finished!

I just finished yet another song for the new album and it’s CRUSHING. I love it. Fast, Heavy, Dark, Horrid Lyrical Content.

I had asked Jon DuBose for on more fast song to round out the album and he delivered in typical Jon DuBose fashion…Over The Top!

So basically 1/2 a song to go and they will be all recorded. 8 songs totaling around 45 minutes worth of music. Next is final mix and mastering.

Stay tuned, I will be releasing a single soon!

What are the qualifications of Religious Leaders?

I want to know what education religious Leaders have. Priests, Rabbis, Ministers. All these people have massive congregations of people and they are teaching others on subjects I don’t feel they are qualified to speak.

Just think about this for a moment.  The “Religious” people are teaching from ancient texts and books that are long since outdated and people are sending their children to these Priests, Rabbis and Ministers to be educated all while these very same Priests, Rabbis and Ministers are ignoring everything we as a global civilization have learned in the last 2000 years!

Would you send your son or daughter to school to take a computer class that only teaches them DOS programing or Windows 3.1 from 1991? That would be completely ridiculous. You wouldn’t send your kids into the world knowing they don’t have the most current computer skills. So why in the world would you let them be taught something so out of date and irrelevant as a 2000 year old dying religion?

It just makes no sense at all….

If you want your offspring to be successful and survive in the modern age, then you must give them the tools to do so.

Modern humans need to be accepting of others. This is something NO religion preaches. Instead, it’s about hating others. Right off the bat…hate the ones that don’t worship the same as you. Next, hate other races, hate gays, hate mixed marriages, hate a womans right to choose (abortion). These are all things that have nothing to do with the people spewing their religious beliefs on others. They have the right to choose for themselves, but they want to choose for you! Just saying it sounds ridiculous and outdated and yet Priests, Rabbis and Ministers are preaching this garbage as you read this. All based on books from a time long since passed.

The answer is so simple….you don’t have to pick up a gun, you don’t have to vote or protest in the street. Simply teach your children the difference between right and wrong and enforce it. Don’t pass the religious hatred down to your kids. Just simply raise them to be good people and make sure they get an education.

By simply breaking this unnecessary religious chain, in time, maybe a 100 years from now or even less, the world will be free of the filthy wars and hatred that is dumped on us thanks to religion.

In the US there is freedom of religion, but there is no freedom from it. But by simply doing this you can insure a better future for ALL, not just the ridiculous idea of “Gods Chosen Few”.

The Heaviest Album I have Ever Made.

The new album I am working on with Jon DuBose and Jamie Page is easily the heaviest record I have ever made for a lot of reasons.  It covers a greater range of Metal styles and pushes hard on the throttle.

First and foremost, it’s a Thrasher’s album. Jon and I spoke many times about the energy level I wanted to achieve and there is no question we have delivered in that department.  As of right now, there are 8 tracks totalling nearly 45 minutes worth of music.

Although primarily Thrash, we dipped into the Doom category a few times and pushed the envelope off the table with some extreme Death Metal as well. The layout and flow of the album is really making me happy as well. The songs flow in and out of each other well and I think there is a good balance of production mixed into the songs.

I have 2 more songs to sing on, finish vocals on a 3rd and then it’s on to mixing and mastering. Once we get closer, I will leak some samples out via Kosher Metal and Facebook.

More to come!


What we are offended by is really, for the most part up to us.

If our parents taught us to be offended because of the differences in someone elses race, religion, background or nationality, then in a way you are predisposed to being offended by someone elses differences because of what someone else told you.

But that doesn’t mean you’re forced to be offended because of what you were taught.

You can also make up your own mind.

Choosing what and what not to be offended by is really up to you. If you choose to not be offended by comments about your car or your clothes, but do choose to be offended by comments about your favorite sporting team, or national flag colors then you have decided that is a line that can not be crossed.

But what if you just let it roll off your back…after all, words are just words.

Blowing up because someone called you a name or sleared your side of a political argument or your religion and your reaction is to be offended by it then you may be setting yourself up for an unnecessary conflict.

In every situation you face you have to decide “Am I Offended?”

Being offended is also an easy way to describe what HATE really is.

Do you hate because someone really wronged you?

Or do you hate because you chose to be offended?

If you chose to be offended and hate was the outcome, chances are, you missed out on a chance to know a quality person. If you could have only looked past the “Offenses”.
