Bonus Trend Watch

If two points form a line, then three will give you a trend (aren’t I epigrammatic today?). In that spirit I offer you the following three trinities of trendwatching:

Sound the Alarm – Nothing says you’re serious like starting your album with air raid siren samples.

Keitzer
Suicide Anthology
2005





Tragedy
Nerve Damage
2006





Bloody Phoenix
War, Misery and Pain
2007





Sounds of the Animal Kingdom – Animal names Attack of the Mad Axeman wish they got to first.

Pig Destroyer
Terrifyer
2004





Righteous Pigs
Stress Related
1990




Vulgar Pigeons
Burning Episode
2004





The Scum Also RisesI may not be any good with titles, but even I noticed this.

Napalm Death
“Scum”
Scum (duh)
1987




Looking for an Answer
“Escoria” (That would be “Scum” for those who no habla Espanol)
Extincion
2008




Sick Fix (pre-Magrudergrind)
“Scum”
Self Titled EP
2007

exactly. it's time to declare a moratorium on the air raid siren.

also on the "number of songs equals the number of violent crimes we've committed" titles too. phobia, pig destroyer, and his hero is gone, i'm looking at you.

i'm not ex-journalist. just ex-newspaper. and i busted the chaps of many a colleague who resorted to lazy cliches. but, yeah, sadly most journalists can't write for shit. woodward and berstein's all the kings men is painful.
