so wave gotik treffen was pretty awesome, partied hard, promoted VF, saw some great bands and made some cool new friends. =) will post up an extensive journal update with pictures shortly.
on another note - whats up with the haters lately? saw the recent drama on the last vf post, plus i recently got called a 'trust fund' kid. and someone said that the triton festival lineup was 'politics'. man some people just dont have a clue.
anyway, glad to be back on VF!
and Kinetik Festival in Montreal - starting tomorrow!
Wow Jet, one would think after all these years and all the shit you and this website's been through, you would simply ignore anonymous bigmouth drama queens and not dedicate an entire post to them.That being said, fuck them. The majority of this community has been supporting you and will continue to do so. You are providing an independent, free platform for us to interact with each other and to discover artists without trading with our private info. That, despite whatever drawbacks this site may have, makes you simply amazing.
So what's this about a vf political party candidate running for election in europe offering free unicorn wings and bags of drugssweets to potential voters I'm hearing about?$10 says people believe this post despite this statement
In Germany for wave gotik treffen spreading some VF love with stickers and partying it up. Then off to kinetik festival in Montreal soo not too many VF updates from me for a bit so I hope you guys are holding up ok. Miss my Internet peeps
Oh. My. Goodness. The number of grammatical errors thrown in with all the cheap insults. I don't know whether to laugh hysterically or pity those for their complete lack of intelligence and total ignorance.On another note, I'm glad you had a lovely time in Germany jet

Triton Festival: NYC, September 5th-7th
Flyer Posted Plus Full Lineup Announced!
Last 5 bands announced:
The Birthday Massacre
[Toronto, Canada :: Metropolis Records]
Voted 'Favorite Band' by the members of VampireFreaks, The Birthday Massacre has had a huge following on the VampireFreaks site (and worldwide) for years now. The band was formed in 1999 and independently produced and recorded their first two albums, Nothing and Nowhere and Violet. Due to their independent success, in 2005 they were approached and signed by Metropolis Records and the band began its steady climb to reaching a much wider audience, and now has a total of 5 studio albums. In the last few years, the band has been performing internationally, traveling extensively across Canada, the United States, Mexico, Australia, the U.K. and Europe.
London After Midnight was formed in the 1990s by Sean Brennan. Unlike most music projects, LAM has retained and nurtured the progressive political and socially aware element of the later punk scene that virtually vanished from the music scene in the early 90s. London After Midnight has headlined and co-headlined concerts and major festivals around the world to crowd of over 30,000 people with bands like The Cure, Green Day, HIM, and countless other major artists. Each of London After Midnight's releases have charted in the top 10 and top 20 of the European DAC and alternative charts. This will be LAM's first NYC performance in over 5 years.
Modulate have supported Alec Empire, VNV Nation and Combichrist on major international tours as well as numerous national and international festival appearances, headline tours and shows around the world. After scoring dancefloor success with his own material, Skullfuck, Detonation and Robots releases, Modulate has become one of the hottest remixers in the alternative electro scene. The bands most recent release, Robots, gave them their biggest hit yet, peaking at #3 in the German Alternative Chart, giving them their first magazine cover and receiving rave reviews across the media...stamping their way into many journalists and broadcasters Best Of 2012 charts.
Voltaire is often described as a modern day renaissance man. He is a singer/ performer, creator of comic books, animation and toys. As a musician, he is a songwriter whose music can best be described as a collection of murder ballads, tongue-in-cheek exercises in the macabre, with just enough bawdy songs about Star Trek and Star Wars to keep a Con audience rolling in the aisles. Many know him for his song "Brains!" from the Cartoon Network show "The Grim Adventures of Billy And Mandy". Voltaire's live shows are highly theatrical -full of stories and games. The theatrical quality of his performances is not surprising; Voltaire has been directing commercials and animating short films for the last twenty years.
First taking the stage in 2011, Candy Brain has blended inspiration from synth pop, industrial rock, and various video game soundtracks to deliver a hard hitting, yet melodic experience with lyrical concepts of love, irony, and comic books. Having shared the stage with acts such as BILE, Orgy, Davey Suicide, and Vampire Everywhere, Candy Brain has developed a continuously growing cult following, and ravages the stage with presence and energy.
I'm really looking forward to attending this event! I've worked things out so that I will be spending less money than originally anticipated and I'm going with my sister who is totally badass when it comes to rocking out! Woohooo
Just in time for their new album "Tears on Tape", these "love metal" rockstars from Finland have amassed a huge worldwide fanbase and have been producing records for over 20 years.
Jet catches up with Ville Vallo and talks about the sounds of the new album, his dad's sex shop, life as a sex symbol, the current state of the goth scene, his tower in finland, and his thoughts on kids and marriage. And since the girls kept asking - no he's not married! LOL
"Not yet, not that I know of. I’m the lone wolf in the band, so maybe one day. When you’re in a band it takes a lot of your energy. It takes a lot of your time. It’s good and bad. Its something that you have to dedicate yourself to, otherwise it won’t go anywhere. I am happy for the rest of the guys…My bass player being married happily for fucking 11 years. The drummer has got a kid. The keyboarder has a couple of kids. So does our guitar player. I’m happy and kinda jealous of them. That they can juggle between those two things, being a dad and being a rock and roller as well. I still haven’t learned how to. "
Few bands have been more influential in my life than Stabbing Westward. They were one of the few industrial bands in the 90s to get regular radio play and MTV airplay (back when MTV actually showed music videos). I listened to their first 3 albums over and over again to the point where I had memorized all the songs and knew all the lyrics.
In 2002 Stabbing Westward broke up and 'The Dreaming' was born, founded by Stabbing Westward frontman "Christopher Hall". The new music is a great follow-up to Stabbing Westward, with the same singer and vocal styles, and still having a fresh new sound. Out of the awesome lineup we have for Triton Festival this September, the band I am actually most looking forward to seeing is "The Dreaming". They will be performing a special set which includes Stabbing Westward songs.
In our interview with Christopher, he talks about why Stabbing Westward broke up, and what it's like to achieve 'mainstream' success in the music scene only to start all over again.
"Stabbing Westward broke up because the music industry became too hard for them. We had just lost our second record deal in 2 years and it became obvious that they were not going to be able to maintain the level of success that they had grown accustomed to. We recorded in high end expensive studios. We had guys to set up our gear every night and check us into hotels,we had luxury buses to ride and sleep in. we basically walked on stage and played and then drank and partied all night until someone tucked us in and then we did it all again the next day. Once the money dried up and they realized that they would have to travel in a van and set up their own gear and share hotel rooms they decided it wasn't worth it anymore. I disagreed. so the very next day Johnny and I started the Dreaming. "
I believe I read somewhere that he doesn't really listen to other music. There's too much music in his head or something so instead he mostly listens to NPR. I also think I read that he's pretty short.

been fixing some minor bugs, so you should see a few things fixed around here. =)
also fixing up the VF mobile site, I know there's a few pages which are still not totally mobile optimized so i've been working on it.
if there's any site bugs that have been bothering you let me know!
Having the same bug issue as enter_the_fang_zone I agree with you Lethe, but I've seen cases where a person has been power bombed up to 10x and nothing happened. They still had their account's. And when us premiums DO power bomb a free user, we have to give a reason for power bombing.
