Grayson

I am back again my dudes. So let me present you with this short lived band. Yes a short lived band. Grayson existed between 2002 and yep. That whole year was when they were around. The band released a tour EP called "Whatever works" 4 simple emo songs about break ups or whatever. Pretty typical sound. Justin (Bassist of Stillwell and the guy who runs Forge again records) was in this band also a member of Wafflehouse was in this band too. Grayson later released a song on a split 7" with Rescue and kicked off with a short tour. Now the bands 5th song is probably the best one of this bands short discography. It was also one of Forge again's early releases. Grayson did about 5 songs and lasted maybe less than a year. There isn't much else to be said about these guys besides what I mentioned here.

A trillion barnacle lapse

I am trying to wrap up on Off cloud nine so I can bring up the new label Nolan is running now called Coercion records... Well now he runs a second label called Heal which started a few days ago and had its first release. Well this band is pretty old, they started off in the late 90's as a screamo Spirit of versailles/In loving memory-esque style. They released a 7" and a split 7" with the last 40 seconds. There were 3 unreleased songs due for a split with As the sun sets but it never came through. So about 10 songs came in like this. The band switched styles with their debut. Honestly from here on I couldn't go through deep with this band. I do like their debut but its not good enough as the earlier 10 songs. The band lasted 2 more full lengths and a couple of songs for a fourth unreleased album. In honesty the other stuff sounds the same and pretty average like. I will post those 10 songs instead though. They sound more like something off The truth about dreaming or something. Nolan released a compilation tape that features some songs from their albums plus all the 10 earlier tracks (I'll keep it at those songs though)

A selective memory

Under a sky so blue

I am back with some Off cloud nine, I have had a shit week after someone tore my heart out and what not. I tried keeping my emotional and physical self busy. Since Monday I have been feeling a bit content though. I already had my 10 minute cry almost 2 weeks ago and I feel ready to move on. I have recently been working out and just killing it at that with some boxing skills and I also been watching the show Lost. I haven't really got much on here but I think to keep myself busy I will start posting here more often. I wanted to bring this fine band up I found on Off cloud nine about 2 years ago. They released a 2014 demo tape with 4 amazing songs, sometime after they released a 5" split with The truth about dreaming and then after a split 7" with Celebration in which both bands are incredible. The band did a 2015 demo tape with 2 rough tracks from the newest EP tape they put out this year. The band overall I like it but they have been active since 2014 and haven't put out much music (2 demo tapes, 2 splits and a EP tape) I really liked their split 7" with Celebration. Both bands are really great. You can catch that 7" at off cloud nine for 3 dollars.
