Abysmal Law

There are just these few points of Abysmal Law you want to be aware of in The Sonic Abyss:

1.  In The Sonic Abyss, the word “Abysmal” is a good thing.   For instance, “10 Most Truly Abysmal Songs” refers to good songs that just never quite got the attention they deserved.

2.  To qualify for placement in The Sonic Abyss, the album/musician/band/song cannot be overwhelmingly popular or too well known.   There are some minor exceptions you’ll see along the way, like the inclusion of Matthias Jabs of Scorpions in the 10 Most Truly Abysmal Guitarists list.  Scorpions are a very well known band who have sold mucho pancakes…but how many times do you ever hear people mention Matthias Jabs?

3.  Definition:  Raview – The Sonic Abyss is a celebration of music I love, so you won’t find me trashing anyone.   That’s just not my idea of a good time.   Mama always said if you can’t say nothin’ nice then don’t say nothin’ at all.   I also find that most people who like to trash bands, etc. on their blogs can barely write a complete, coherent, readable sentence anyway.  I refer to my concert and CD reviews as “raviews,” which is a rave and a review.

4.  Q: Why do Sonic Abyss “10 Most Truly Abysmal…” lists usually have 11 entries?

A: “These go to 11.” – Nigel Tufnel (Spinal Tap) from This Is Spinal Tap

  1. What about Zodiac Mindwarp and the Love Reaction “Tattooed Beat Messiah”?
    I have heard some of their other CD’s, and yes, they suck, but this one (along with their “not so serious” funny music video’s) i think, should have its place in the Sonic Abyss.
    Do you think so?

  2. Hi, guys!!!

    We are ESTAMPIDA,a thrash metal band from Spain,and we would like to
    let you know about us!!!
    If you want some stuff just like, bio, some more tracks or something
    just let me know!!!

    OFFICIAL ESTAMPIDA PRESS ANNOUNCEMENT: “Crowd Control” videoclip.

    This announcement is about the removing by YOUTUBE our recent video
    “CROWD CONTROL”.

    Over one month ago, YouTube has decided to remove our video from the
    corresponding channel, without giving any kind of precise explanation,
    just by noting that our work did not meet their regulations and
    policies. Having been a month, doing an intense paperwork and forms,
    together with NADIR MUSIC and AL LENTE COMUNICACION AUDIOVISUAL. The
    only response we had was that the music video was removed from the
    channel, and that they considerated invalid our replica and appeal.

    As ESTAMPIDA, NADIR MUSIC and AL LENTE COMUNICACION AUDIOVISUAL, We
    want to make clear that “WE DON’T ADMIT ANY CHARGE” and We invite
    anyone who has seen, to tell us if our work had some sort of malicious
    scenes or any kind of vocabulary is often aggravating see in the same
    YOUTUBE. The work done by the three parties mentioned above, based on
    the promotion of the video was hard and intense, costed much
    sacrifice, and media, label, fans and bands, exactly know how hard it
    is reaching more than 15,000 visits Worldwide. The fact still remains
    unchanged: they have taken our video in a unceremoniously dictatorial
    and arbitrary way. The decision is taken, and that means to us to
    start again, working harder than before, those who know us know our
    fighting spirit, the video will be uploaded again, and as often as
    NECESSARY. As always, We deeply thank all Medias that will echo this
    statement, and for all our Fans, let the new link to “CROWD CONTROL”:

    Finally, we leave the following message:

    “Gentlemen of YOUTUBE, We deeply regret that You did not like our
    video, We deeply regret that our style is not “dancing on the top of a
    boat”, and We deeply regret that our work does not allow adequate
    remuneration”.

    Our style is HEADBANGING, our style is singing AGAINST WORLD
    DOMINATION, AGAINST CENSORSHIP, and AGAINST HANDLING BY THE MEDIA.

    Thank you very much for Your kind attention!
