19:22 - ScreamingSteelUS *complete* trash, though probably because I had little exposure to other Morbid Angel at that point. I saw them a couple of years ago and they put on one of the most intense shows I've ever seen. Good band.
19:21 - ScreamingSteelUS Altars of Madness and Covenant are excellent albums. I find Blessed are the Sick overrated, but still decent. Other than that, I haven't heard any album in its entirety except for Illud Divinum Insanus, which I didn't find
19:19 - !J.O.O.E.! They are / were definitely a band that made music.

The band posted the following update concerning some coming releases and some other things:
We've wrapped up the east coast leg of this spring tour and it couldn't of been better. Well, maybe Richmond could have been, but even that turned out ok. Thanks to eveyone who came out to be a part of the shows, we know a good number you travelled a long way, we appreciate it. Bear hugs again to Zombi and Dalek who killed it every night as well as being great friends and tourmates.
So we finally got the Live 4 CD together and will have a limited number of them available from our webstore soon. This volume is a compilation of songs from different shows over the past 6 years or so, with some older songs, a couple newer extended line-up songs, and a live improv 'jam.'
