"shiFtid.com", submitted by . Are you ready for the "hardcore revolution"? No, me neither. I also wasn't ready for five mentally-deficient Slipknot-wannabes with radioactive faces leering at me from my monitor. Having permanently destroyed at least 30% of my brain by scouring this site for nearly 15 minutes, I still can't figure out exactly who or what "shifTid" is actually supposed to be. All I can ascertain is that it involves painting your face with luminous crap and making every effort to look like a truly stupendous retard. Ugh, the horror.

The unique blend of aggressive vocals, grinding riffs, driving low-end rhythms, and disconcerting sounds has created a stir in Central PA, shocking some people, leaving others awestruck. The shows are nothing less than pure, non-stop energy, start to finish, only adding to the sensory overload one can expect to experience.

Despite having no official album releases to date, the few studio tracks that shiFtid has recorded have found widespread acceptance, both locally and via the Internet. The band’s official demo, “Ugly”, has caused a significant stir among hard rock/ hardcore music fans across Northeastern PA.

"Ugly". Yeah, I can believe that. Don't leave without downloading their mp3s, that is assuming you want to get yourself a "sensory overload" (read as: "earache").

By the way, they have a guestbook you can sign, just in case you feel a spleen-ripping urge to offer your soul and / or ugly, luminous face to the Hardcore Revolution. ROCK OUT.

    The Fracking Fables of Groggery Gibbonman

    ‘Toad coin?’ wondered the traveler as he examined the pebble. It did not look all that different from any other pebble, and certainly nothing like a coin. ‘What manner of coin has no head or tail, and bears no seal or flag? Who backs this toad coin, the toad bank? The toad treasury!?’ The traveler laughed, but the toads croaked sternly back at him.

    Your Dog is Totally Worth Refrigerated Food

    Spending $10-15 a day on perishable organic dog food is not a sign of a decadent culture in terminal decline, it's actually real good and worth it.
