BETWEEN JAPAN, THE RED CHORD AND ME
I really, really want to go to Japan. It’s definitely on my top 5 list of places I most want to visit along with Sweden (duh), Iceland and Alaska. “What’s with all the cold places, Vince? Don’t you wanna visit Tahiti or something?” Maybe some day. Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic and Egypt sated my warm-weather fix in recent years.
But Japan just looks like so much fun; the incredible sushi, all the crazy candies and foods in the grocery store, the big cities, the temples, and last but not least the completely different culture. This Metal Injection tour diary of The Red Chord and Between the Buried and Me’s recent Japanese tour captures all of those things except for the sushi (wtf guys? i’m dying to know how that octopus ball was, though). I can only imagine the looks these dirty, bearded metal dudes got from the locals everywhere they went.
