ENTHRONED ARE COMIN’ TO AMERICA
Enthroned haven’t toured the U.S. in nine years, and I didn’t see them then because nine years ago I wasn’t listening to any black metal, my attitude being that bands that wore corpse paint were not to be taken seriously. The ensuing decade has taught me much about life, however, including these facts: it is better to have loved and lost than never loved at all, you shouldn’t go swimming for at least half an hour after you eat, always wear clean underwear in case you have to go to the ER ’cause you don’t want the doctor to see your dirty shorts, and corpse paint is not simply a gimmick used by European nerds to make themselves seem scary to other nerds, but, rather, is… actually, yeah. I guess corpse paint pretty much is a gimmick used by European nerds to make themselves seem scary to other nerds. But I’m much more tolerant of it now, and recognize that a lot of these bands are really talented.
My point simply being that maybe this time I’ll see Enthroned when they come to town! Maybe I’ll even wear corpse paint to the show. I mean, I’m not gonna do that ’cause I have very sensitive skin and the make-up would most likely make me break out. But I might go to the show.
