    Umm, if this conversation reminds you of something at that link, there is NO WAY I'm clicking on that while at work!

    I'm just disappointed they didn't ask Womb Tomb to play.

    Fine, here are the lyrics. Just not as funny without Brian Posehn on the mic.

    VERSE 1:
    They’ve killed METAL twice, but it will never really die!
    It’s kind of like a zombie or even that Jesus guy…

    So grab your friends, some instruments and start a metal band
    Just sing about death, Egypt and wizards or rip off Ayn Rand

    We’re coming to the end of the first verse…
    Then comes the breakdown, a pretty chorus and then the second verse.

    I know I just rhymed verse with verse
    That’s because I’m sooo METAL, bitch, where’s your fucking purse?

    PRE-CHORUS(BREAKDOWN):

    BREAKDOWN!!! In this part it sounds like the singer wants to fight…
    BREAKDOWN!!! Don’t be scared, the chorus will make it all alright

    CHORUS:

    Metal by numbers, 1, 2, 3
    Follow these rules and you will see
    Cookie monster vocals or yell like a wookie
    Metal by numbers, COOKIE, COOKIE, COOKIE
    Metal by numbers, 1, 2, 3
    THIS IS THE GAY PART, with melody
    Even a baby could do it, just give it a try
    Just sound like Maiden or Metallica or Every Time I Die

    SECOND VERSE:

    I have to change my voice to make me sound (gang) MAD!
    If I tried to sing clean it would make your ears (gang) SAD!

    This is the (gang) GANG VOCAL and I’ll tell you the (gang) TRUTH!
    It’s four sweaty dudes yelling in a (gang) BOOTH!

    Music really sucks now Posers and trendy FOOLS
    But compared to Coldplay and Nelly, EVEN SHITTY METAL RULES!
    It’s metal by numbers, it’s not arithmetic
    John Mayer, Kelly Clarkson…they all can suck my PENIS!

    PRE-CHORUS(BREAKDOWN):

    BREAKDOWN!!! In this part it sounds like the singer wants to fight…
    BREAKDOWN!!! Don’t be scared, the chorus will make it all alright

    CHORUS:

    Metal by numbers, 1, 2, 3
    Follow these rules and you will see
    Cookie monster vocals or yell like a wookie
    Metal by numbers, COOKIE, COOKIE, COOKIE
    Metal by numbers, 1, 2, 3
    THIS IS THE GAY PART, with melody
    Even a monkey could do it, just give it a try
    Copy Maiden or Metallica or Every Time I Die

    MOSH PART:
    (BUILD UP)
    Here it comes! C’mon! All Right!
    ARE YOU ALMOST READY??
    Dammit! I missed it!

    (SPOKEN) This is the mosh part! MOSH!!!
    Or don’t. It’s your call. I'm too old for it. I just stand in the back and try not to get hit. Watch out for the shirtless white trash guys. They’ll punch you and they stink. And look out for the screamo kids trying out their karate kicks. Dude, you look gaytarded. And look out for the giant Mexican guy, he looks really pissed. I wish everybody would put their shirts back on, it’s kind of gross. Is this part still going? Here comes the lead break…Oh, not yet. Here it comes… here it comes. GO!

    SOLO(Jon Donais)

    CHORUS:

    Metal by numbers, 1, 2, 3
    Follow these rules and you will see
    Cookie monster vocals or yell like a wookie
    Metal by numbers, COOKIE, COOKIE, COOKIE!
    Metal by numbers, 1, 2, 3
    THIS IS THE GAY PART, with melody
    Even a retard could do it, JUST GIVE IT A TRY!
    Steal from Maiden or Metallica or Every Time I Die

    Never in a million years would Gorgoroth play DLD, but could you imagine the complaints on this forum after the event if they did? Would be incredible!

    But...they don't do growlers.

    Morbid Angel now (since David Vincent left) would be killer. Would be cool if they somehow got some bands playing Maryland Deathfest to come. Bands like Candlemass, Autopsy, Root, Grave, Exhumed, Oranssi Pazuzu, etc.

    True, but I'm hoping that if I ask very nicely a couple weeks beforehand for just a 32oz fill and explain where it's going, they'll accommodate one of their quite regular customers.

    I don't have a cooler backpack. I know it's not ideal but how have normal backpacks worked for people? Just use ice packs and frozen water bottles?
     
  29. Bbear

    Bbear Initiate (147) Oct 26, 2016 Illinois

    Yes. Backpack has served me well with a few frozen water bottles and an ice pack. However, the last few years have been on the colder side. With it being in May, might have to add more ice packs.

    My water bottles were still partially frozen at the end of the day last year. I plan to use the same backpack this year.

    Back-pack has worked well for me also. I place my camelbak with ice in it, as well as 5-7 bottles for shares. As I consume the bottles (most before entering DLD) they create space for allotment. Also would pack in some Cliff bars, small bag of pretzels, some clear plastic cups for people that forgot or broke their glasses for shares and bottle opener which can cut through wax.

    backpack worked well past 2 years but like previously mentioned, warmer weather will probably necessitate some sort of cooler.

    Hope it isnt too warm, it was nice the past couple years to have the beers stay at drinking temp after opened.

    very true. I did not mind the rain personally, especially the more I consumed beer. I can see it ruining the day for the less prepared people.

    What if I go to Dark Lord Day alone?!

    Hear me out...

    Assuming FFF releases tix to the local public like they always seem to do each year a couple weeks before DLD, I plan on picking up a tix.

    My dad, uncles and cousins (who are all big craft beer guys) won't be available. I have a few buddies who would go, but not for $180/ticket - it doesn't mean that much to them, even tho they like craft beers (they sure don't have a problem coming to my place and drinking them). Then the final resort is my girl, but same thing she's already said she won't go, "it's not worth it". Blah blah.

    Any of you ever go alone?! DO people go alone?! I'd bring some goodies to share.

    Oh... Asking for a friend..

    No one is alone on The Day of the Darklord. I always go with one guy, but mostly we talk to strangers. I wouldn't hesitate to go at it alone

    I basically went alone last year because my friends wussed out. I ended up selling my extra to some random Internet dude. Actually looking like I may be going the same route this year (yes, I need better friends). :rolling_eyes:

    You should be fine as long as you're sociable and sharing beers. People were generous in passing stuff around even though I had a mostly shelf turd supply.

    The one drawback was having to keep my backpack with me at all times. Those trips to the portapotty lugging that monstrosity sucked. Admittedly I got less annoyed the drunker I got.

    The last 2 yeas were so cold that my beer was fine in a normal backpack, I use a Chrome messenger bag, there are separate compartments and the main compartment is waterproof so I don't have to worry about anything getting wet. Assuming it doesn't rain this year.
