rothgar-inside the glass confines


i was turned onto this band by paul at perthmusic blog.
this tape is top-notch thrash metal from '92, really well written and played despite the young age of the members (i believe they ranged in age from 16-18 at the time this was released? and they've another two releases in the years preceding this too). some metallica and slayer thrash with a lot of melodic riffs in there too. the drummer went on to drum for N.I.L. and killing heidi

Rothgar were my favourite band in the early 90s. My late teens are a little hazy, but I think I saw nearly every gig. I had two of their tapes but they were lost to time about 10 years ago. I still have the tape covers though. I would love to see them do a come back show. I liked Nil also , but it wasn't the same without Mike B.P.

It must have been you and me at alot of their gigs then man. They stood out in the Perth metal scene. I followed these guys as soon as I got onto them, just before Glass Confines. They did a show under the name 'Leaf' at the Lone Star which drew people in from the street and made everyone's jaws drop. It was pretty much ambient style stuff at this point. Then the next I heard Adam went to Killing Heidi and Andrew guest appeared, you can hear his influence in the tracks he plays. Later I searched for Andrew's stuff and found 'Nightswimmer'. Last I checked there was nothing happening hear after three albums. If anyone knows what any of these guys are doing let me know at absyne@hotmail.com. I thought they were really creative and I have good memories of their creativity in the 90's :)

Require your family. If you have a youngster, you could possibly have them response the cell phone for you personally in order to get their allowance. Getting loved ones who deal with and for you will help lessen the pressure of starting a brand new online business, and also letting you hang out with them.
