Betcha Can't Fuckin Play This!
April 22, 2010
Before I head out for the day to go watch Mutiny Within shred faces... I decided I'd leave you with a video from my buds in Sacramento, CA's Ultra technical Noisetendocore shredders Journal... or well, more specifically, from Journal's facemeltingly awesome shredtastic guitarist Joseph Van Houten.

If you dig what you see, head on over to Journal's Myspace page for more info on the band and be sure to check out a few songs from their forthcoming independent full length release while you're there!

Journal will be shredding alongside Sumerian tech melodic thrashers, Conducting From The Grave and other locals on June 12th as part of 'Cap City Metalfest', taking place at The Boardwalk in Orangevale (Sacramento), CA. More information on this event is also available on Journal's Myspace page.

Cheers!!
