"nike 12/2/2008 9:14:40 PM what the fck does that stand for?" If I'm not mistaken, it's a cheat code in Mortal Combat.

12/3/2008 12:24:52 AM
it is the blood code for mortal kombat on sega

12/3/2008 1:38:14 AM
Looking forward to this my band played with them a few years back.Great band.

12/3/2008 1:41:40 AM
This band has been around for a while. I am surprised they have made it this far.

12/3/2008 2:02:17 AM
YOU ARE fckIN' DEAD...... 2 ME!!!

12/3/2008 2:15:56 AM
this band will continue to be a revolving door of members around their singer. can't wait for this trend to die and for them to go with it.

12/3/2008 2:19:46 AM
this band is really inventive. and creative. and technical. and overall awesome.

12/3/2008 2:36:24 AM

12/3/2008 2:37:13 AM

12/3/2008 9:41:37 AM

12/3/2008 9:44:47 AM
hmmm good for them

12/3/2008 9:48:33 AM
Will never forget when this band played AFTER Necrophagist at VA Beach a year or two back. I looked over and saw the drummer holding is head in his hands after witnessing what they were following. Have never seen, not worth the time.

12/3/2008 11:27:40 AM

12/3/2008 12:15:03 PM
too bad veil of maya and after the burial suck just as much, guitarist_sandy

12/3/2008 12:32:00 PM
Shit band, shit label

12/3/2008 12:32:23 PM
This band sucks they are part of that Virginia/DC metal scene with c-cky gay dudes playing shitty "death metal"...join TTIW and you guys can take a tour bus off a cliff!

12/3/2008 1:59:36 PM
Played with this band about a year and a half ago. Used my amp, then broke it. Not their fault though. Nice dudes.

12/3/2008 2:31:35 PM
my old bassist from bitgota was in this band for a little while...he then left to europe somewhere. Spazz, where are you now?

12/3/2008 2:43:11 PM
j33bus 12/2/2008 9:35:41 PM possibly the worst band name ever bullshit. its the blood cheat from mortal kombat. that is badass

Fat Jack told me these guys were gonna get huge. Looks like he was right. Mortal Kombat for Sega Genesis is the greatest game of all time
