Just over the past few years, the number of bands getting their gear stolen out of their vans/trailers has been staggering. This kind of horrible shit usually happens when the band has loaded out and left the van unattended to get paid, go get a bite to eat, or crash in a dirty ass motel room for the night. I just read today about how The Jeff Loomis Band just had all of their shit stolen out of their van after leaving it unattended for ten fucking minutes to go get some food. It’s bad enough to read about this shit but in the case of Atlanta based thrashers Sadistic Ritual, it gets even worse.
According to the band’s official Facebook page, Sadistic Ritual was performing a show with Memphis based band and Housecore Records recording dicks Evil Army who showed their appreciation to Sadistic Ritual by stealing the bands bass gear. Here is what the band posted on their Facebook Page:.
Unfortunately, as of yet, no YouTube footage of said ass kicking has surfaced but you can rest assured that as soon as it does I will post it for all to see.
Reading this really chapped my fucking hide. I mean, it’s bad enough that bands are getting their shit stolen but for a band to steal from another band? What the fuck is wrong with these guys. The metal community (as I’m sure most other communities are) is a tight community and is about coming together to work with each other and help each other out. The fact that these guys flat out stole from another band and got caught is a blow to the community that luckily has a happy ending. Sadistic Ritual got their gear back and the word on Evil Army has been spread. That is why I am here doing this. This shit will not go down on deaf ears and blind eyes.
Bands, fans, venues, be on the look out for Evil Army. They are a band of thieves and they are not to be trusted. If you’d like to send Evil Army your thoughts on their band, check out the links below. Besides, they’re a shitty fucking band so that just makes it all the easier. Reach out and e-slap them via Facebook and while you’re at it, drop Phil Anselmo at Housecore Records a line and let him know what bunch of sacks of shit he has on his label.
And just for the record, I don’t dig Sadistic Ritual. They’re not really my cup of tea but I feel that this story at least deserved to be posted.
Have at it kids!
