Just recently we uploaded a new drum video. It’s one of the several covers we filmed and recorded a few weeks ago. Seems like I still haven’t ran out of Blink-182 songs to cover, so here’s another Travis Barker classic. The Blink album Take Off Your Pants And Jacket has THE best sounding drums ever made. Actually we try to mimic that namely drum sound on our own recordings too. In addition to the sound, Barker’s playing on that record is also top notch. […] Read more!

1. Metallica – Holier Than Thou
Metallica S/T was one of my first CDs so I listened to it all the time, since I had nothing else. I remember that I played One Must Fall 2097 while listening to this. It’s maybe the only fighting game that I might have been good at. […] Read more!

Out of all camera gear, fisheye is definitely what defines our band. Right from the beginning we were looking for a camera with a fisheye, since all of our idols are using it. For example every great skate movie is shot with a fisheye and Travis Barker uses it a lot on his Instagram photos. Greatest examples are the ones he takes of his car’s front grill.

Fisheye makes any situation look cooler, and it’s best when shot from a low angle and close to the target. […] Read more!
