SAINT VITUS is an American doom metal band from Los Angeles. The quartet consists of founding members Dave Chandler (guitarist) and Mark Adams (bass) alongside singer Scott "Wino" Weinrich and drummer Henry Vasquez. SAINT VITUS has been regarded and credited as one of the first bands of the doom metal genre, along with Pentagram, Witchfinder General, Trouble and Candlemass. The band formed in 1978 under the name Tyrant, with Scott Reagers (vocals), Dave Chandler (guitar), Mark Adams (bass) and Armando Acosta (drums). After recording two demos, the band changed their name to SAINT VITUS in 1979 after the song "St. Vitus' Dance" by Black Sabbath. The group's main influences were Black Sabbath and Black Flag, the latter of which SAINT VITUS toured with during the 1980s. Greg Ginn of Black Flag would also sign SAINT VITUS to his label, SST Records, which eventually released four LPs and two EPs by the band including the now classic LPs "Saint Vitus" (1984), "Hallow's Victim" (1985) and "Born Too Late" (1986). In 1986, Weinrich replaced Reagers; this lineup proved to be the band's longest-lasting, and recorded three albums, "Born Too Late" (1986), "Mournful Cries" (1988) and "V" (1990). In 2008 it was announced that SAINT VITUS were reuniting for a tour and the band would headline at the 2009 Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Netherlands. SAINT VITUS' new album, entitled "Lillie: F-65", was released on April 27, 2012.

"In Saint Vitus, there is an eternity of despair, bottomless boredom and muddy guitar fuzz that, to this day, has never been duplicated. Saint Vitus unleashes the slow-mo headbang of a thousand metalheads"

"Saint Vitus are arguably the single most important and influential band in American doom"

"Chandler's prowess as an axeman cannot be given enough emphasis: his writhing, twisted, screaming solos, and devilishly heavy riffs funnel blood and mercury into Saint Vitus' heart, as Wino's pipes lay down the soul."

"During more than 30 years together, St. Vitus played by a single rule, a rule many heavy rock and metal bands eventually forget -- focus simply on being the best at being yourself. Though their formula has changed scant little over the past three decades, it has lost little of its potency."

Logo bags are kind of five minutes ago, right Chanel Replica Watches? Theyve been kind of five minutes ago for a couple of years now. Great for dressing up day-wear or a casual night on the town. What was supposed to be a week of fun in the sun ended up being a week of rest inside, but that meant more time with my family and more time to shop online.It takes a lot for me to like a suede bag, but Gucci has gone and done just that.Cameron Diaz sure is mixing up the handbags lately. Both are taken into my wishlist authentic chanel cambon.I remember a couple of seasons ago when Louis Vuitton debuted detachable fox tails on the Spring 2012 runway and everyone threw a fit over how silly and tacky and unreasonable they were.Gucci does such a fabulous green python, here and also in the small shoulder bag with horsebit detail. It also has an interlocked GG charm, which is detachable. Yep, teach them to school in journalism.Not only is the bags basic look fun for the coming warm weather chanel watches, but I just cant resist this bright, vibrant shade of purple. This is an overall simple bag, but an option rather than going for simple black leather and getting a slight blue sheen which will still work with many outfits.I love the colors that it comes in as well.The Chloe Katie Embroidered Bag appears easy to make if you have some wool in various colors and glue and a plain bag.I can handle exotic skins and I can handle metallic, but I sure cant handle overly gold metallic python skin, golden hardware, and a chain shoulder strap with rings.The east/west version is a tad more expensive than the large version.Its the first of this seasons accessories line that I dont like in any way, and Ive got a couple reasons as to why.
