    Maybe guys at HAARP device (not the band) are unhappy that it's used as a band name, and it's also a weapon, that is capable of targeting individuals, making them fuck up constantly. So they tuned it in on Al back when THM was on their first tour, hoping it would destroy the band, but it didn't go as planned? :lol:

    Replacement of an expired contract? I doubt strandberg have provided him with much of an income in years. Plus he's not exactly going to be on the best of endorsement contracts considering the niche genre he Is a part of?

    Having a few LTDs chucked at you is nice I suppose, perhaps next year's he'll be endorsed by Kiesel (those five sold guitars might cover a few months rent?

    Who am i kidding, he lives in his mum's basement.

    He probably has an okay day job, he's not just living off this. There are plenty of things you can do to earn decent money nowadays. Which means he'll have money to sink in to this, money to pay his manager who will do their job of securing gigs etc.

    Haarp is just a hobby band at this point.

    Part of me is sad seeing this, after all isn't he a struggling artist like many of us here ? No matter your level now, you had to start by sucking.

    On the other hand, WTF ! If you think you can learn to sing, then sure go ahead, but then show the final result, no one wants to see your lame updates about baby steps.

    It's 2019, if you want to be a struggling artist it really your prerogative.

    I am pretty sure the majority of us are hobby players/weekend huggers.

    The band could realistically be doing pretty well if it weren't for his attitude. The first album is such a solid release, he had the perfect platform.

    Yeah that's kind of what I mean, some of us are amateurs and thus don't always get everything super tight or first time right, and do what we can at our level with the time we have (that's what I emant with struggling). So to some degree, his issues are understandable.
    But yeah when you promise people albums and get to headline serious festivals, the standards are and should be higher. And you don't come up with half-assed excuses afterwards.

    He sounds like someone who is singing along with their earbuds and doesn't know how loud they are and those screams are gonna kill his throat in short order. Alll neck.

    After watching that horrible video of Al singing I need to watch this to clean out my ears. Same mic, decades of practice difference.



    With practice Al might be able to pull it off but right now he's doing EVERYTHING wrong. He's not breathing right, he's not screaming right, he's not enunciating right, he's not doing vibrato right. He sounds like he's mumble singing to himself.

    I'd be a little bit more "there but for the grace of God go I" if there wasn't so much hubris & shenanigans with this guy.

    oh god I just got to the part where he "sings" Jet packs was yes. :rofl:

    It's so weird, I recognize another song he "sings" but only by the lyrics. He has completely botched the melody so badly that my mind can't recall what song those lyrics belong to.

    Everyone has their own unique "talents" I suppose.

    Or any other place where you can only afford renting a tiny apartment with no other place to put it

    1. I have never been to Euroland.
    2. All the apartments I've had in the US either have a special laundry section in it, or no hook-ups at all and a laundry-mat building close by.

    Shit, around here in-unit laundry costs more than an extra bedroom.
