Reasoning with Madness
"This is a barbaric yawp, and it will be sounded over the roofs of the world."
I'm so stoked that RATM are reuniting. They are still one of my favorite bands, one of the biggest inspirations on my musical career, lyrically and musically.
I will never forget their sold out show in Seattle at the old Mercer Arena in 1994 on the Evil Empire tour. I've never seen an entire crowd, front to back, explode into a full arena moshpit ever in my life like that. They have more energy and fury than any band that has ever taken the stage. I can only imagine that the dumpster fire in the White House has spurred this.
I pray this is more than just a short tour and these ninjas are going to write some new songs. There hasn't been really any reaction of any sort of merit from any musicians to this hideous era we are all living through, and I can't think of better band to bring the noise in 2020.
Who Am I?
I am Ahab.
