What's the significance of the symbol on his bass? It resembles other things that are in no way crustcore, so I doubt that's it. Is it religious?

Most likely cultural. The Baron lives on the Isle of Skye where a large portion of people still speak Gaelic. Since he's a swordsmith, I assume he's into the cultural history of the celtic peoples.


it comes on all versions of that bass


Yep, it's an Nikki Sixx "Blackbird"(?) by Epiphone/Gibson. I think he wanted to use an Iron Cross for the logo but the suits said "nope"...
Either way, its nice to see a REAL bassist playin' one...

Wild. Thanks for the replies. The Southern Cross/Iron Cross worship is sort of interesting.

I may be one of few who think this band is just plain boring.

At Kathedral. A total shithole, but what can you do.

Annick, Slaughter Strike is doing a show with Orodruin (Rochester) the last weekend in June. You should come!!!

Also, Razor is coming out of the woodwork for one show on August 15th.

PM me if you want to come for either. You and others can crash at my place.

I used to think that and didn't listen to them for years, but gave them another chance recently and Amebix finally "clicked" for me... a totally unique band in their time, you have to give them credit for that at least.
