How can a song title like that not attract your attention? Pasadena Napalm Division recently released a video for the song which appears on their recent self-titled album released earlier in 2013. It’s a fun album and for DRI fans you might recognize that vocalist? If not, he’s the guy from DRI in case you didn’t get the tie in. Enjoy the song and a happy birthday shout to my brother who is and always will be…older than me 🙂 and has no idea who Napalm Division is. Enjoy your song of the week.
If I asked you to listen to a song called 100 Beers with A Zombie from a band called Pasadena Napalm Division what would you think? You would probably think it’s silly and take it with a grain of salt, but listen anyway. Would it change things a bit if I told you former DRI vocalist Kurt Brecht was fronting the band? I bet it would. Now take them seriously! Out of Texas, comes Pasadena Napalm Division with their Hardcore Punk, and primarily Thrash concoction very much worth taking note, especially for fans of DRI during their Thrash Zone and 4 of a Kind days.
Back in the day, going to a show was priority and when we got there it was all about good friendly violent fun. The mosh pit; the epicenter of all that is angst was the place to be to let off a little steam. I remember one of my first pit experiences fondly. It was (almost positive) on August 19th 1990, at a dive club called “The Channel” in Boston, MA. I think this may have actually been my first club show. Death Angel was the headliner supporting their album Act III and opening for them was another bay area band, Forbidden. We also saw a couple of local bands – Cardinal Sin and Atomicaust. The pit was an intimidating sight to see – all that hair, sweat, and movement. People were diving off the railings; it was complete chaos…the kind I wanted to be a part of…and so I jumped in with both feet and off I went. Needless to say it was a marvelous, exciting, and bruising time, but damn I felt good…so good that I remember that show to this day down to the six other people I went with…we all crammed into a small Hyundai I think – one dude in the trunk for the hour-long trip to Boston and then back. That’s the shit we did to get to the show and get into the pit.
