Don’t take your health, friends or family for granted. Ever.

The following is an op ed of sorts which includes personal music scene memories of the last 20 years, memories of my father Tom Vink-Lainas who just passed away from Cancer and struggled with smoking  cigs and drinking decades of his life. It also touches on Blake Judd, Coheed And Cambria , Bad Brains, UNITY and why PMA is so important. It is mainly about the Kingston, NY and Woodstock, Ny region music scene I came up in (I’ve sung for like 9 bands since 1993). Hopefully it can help heal some people (myself included).

Painmask: One-5 alive and tracking with Joey Z (Pt.1)

In the first piece of a series…Upstate, NY’s metalcore revenants Painmask are back with bold news. The decades long running Kingston based crew recently entered Darkworld Studio, home base of my band Antidote 8, to record 3 new songs with producer/guitarist/bad ass Joey Z (Life of Agony/Steromud) and new drummer Joe Carney (ex-Antidote 8). It was awesome to get a sneak peak of new Painmask, riffs as bludgeoning as and sounding bigger than ever. Even with a basic board mix and no EQ! Painmask recorded at Darkworld and are then mixing the stuff at Joey’s studio in NYC. It was nearly 11 years to the day that Painmask members saw Life Of Agony reconquer NYC in concert, and vocalist Jay Avery fills us in.

Jay Avery : I had met JoeyZ a few times over the years and knew of his Method of Groove studio. But it wasn’t until one night back in 2011 when the fate of the band seemed shaken. While out at a friend’s club watching the River Runs Again video,(a show which we attended) and being inspired,  Painmask bassist Carl and I had discussed possibly starting a LOA Tribute band. The next day I placed a Craigslist add. Sometime later I received an honorable email from Joey wishing me luck and vowing to share the stage at some point if I got it together. Later on I sent him our 2010 ep to see if he’d be interested in working with us. Then it was the dedication of our new drummer JoeyC that was the pinnacle for the new material. Having JoeyZ engineer this new record is a big step for us. Not only is he someone who has been on both sides of the spectrum., he’s a solid dude with an amazing work ethic!

 

Stay tuned! One-5! And props to Joe Carney for killing it with the Mask boys.

Band Name Origin: Black Veil Brides

Posted by KageDrummer on Tuesday, August 16, 2011 at 2:42 PM (PST)

Ever wonder where some bands come up with their band names?  Well, we do, and we’re sick of sitting around scratching our heads about it and we bet a lot of you Metal Rioters are sick of doing the same damn thing. So, we’re pulling our sleuth gear out to bring these heavy metal mysteries into the light and pulling the curtain back to bring you sweet revelation.

Today we’re looking at L.A. based hard rock band Black Veil Brides.  The group’s front man, Andy Biersack, explains:

When I was very young – I still am to this day – I was always very obsessed with religion in particular, but Catholicism and the imagery behind it. I myself am not religious, but I’ve always had a great respect for the idea of without faith there’s no hope, so without hope there’s no reason to go on. People need something to believe in. I just decided very early on in my life that I wanted to believe more so in myself, than give my undying something to a deity. That name comes from devotion in the Catholic Church, when a nun becomes a nun, they have a ceremony and she actually marries God and wears a black veil. She basically gives up all the joys of life to devote herself to her calling. To me, I always thought what we do in rock ‘n roll music is the same. There’s a great level of devotion if you want to do this, you have to give your all to it. We see ourselves as that.

Black Veil Brides newest album, “Set The World On Fire”, was released in June 2011 though Universal Republic Records.
