    Faceless have decent management who can keep Keene in check. It's been going well for them as of late. Michael plays what he knows and gets session players to fill in the other parts...Exactly what should have been done here.

    ....now... management didn't seem to have much control up until recently, and rumor was that there A LOT of money owed to management, hence the not being able to cancel tour/shows that maybe shouldn't have been played.

    But that's way OT and was more of a point of reference than a talking point. The Haack Machine seems to just be some egomaniacs fever dream that people keep buying into for some reason or another.

    I think Al mentioned a while ago that they're being managed by EJ now, same guy as the Faceless.

    I thought Al's whole thing was going solo with Haarp, didn't they leave/get dropped by their record?

    ( yes, I realise record company and management are not the same thing)

    Yeah you're right he parted ways with Sumerian and wanted to do it all his way with the help of the gofundme. When that didn't go as planned he started to send it off to different labels/publishers and was working with EJ to try and resurrect the band's image.

    This is sad and hilarious at the same time.
    So much potential wasted...

    I heard the gofundme was to pay off early release of the sumerian contract?
    and was billed as "album expenses"

    He literally said in the video for the campaign that was one of the things the money was for. There was no trickery there.

    Why does it feel like he's being held at gunpoint behind the camera? It's like he's reading off a script like his life depends on it.

    Dude will do anything to get out of playing guitar live

    EDIT: also, 3 track demo, and put out a new song...so much for the "album"

    I mean give him enough time and he might get good at singing too

    But this dude has formed his whole career around teasing what's cool about him (songwriting ablity) before being able to deliver

    Either its Andy Kaufman levels of comedic genius or this guy is really just a dipshit. It's really hard to tell at this point. I guess if this is somehow profitable, it can't be as dumb as it seems.

    Is it profitable though? Highly debatable. The odd free guitar and a hand full of low paying gigs (I highly doubt Euroblast paid him much) doesn't exactly keep a roof over yoyr head and pump up that nest egg.

    I doubt he upgraded from 2 Varbergs to an LTD purely for taste.
