DECIBEL MAGAZINE - ISSUE #110
Page 36: Pyrexia - Feast of Iniquity profile. I talked with Chris Basile, founder of Pyrexia, when I hadn’t yet heard the whole new album, basing my opinions on one song. Finally got the full experience, and it’s a killer record. I have a lot of respect for these guys and I was bummed to hear their tour with Six Feet Under was just cancelled.
Page 86: Ringworm - Bleed review. Solid EP from these Cleveland hardcore titans, keeping things lean and mean with plenty of metallic punk and a Discharge cover. I gave it 7/10.

GIRLS & CORPSES - VOL. 7 WINTER ISSUE
FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROT - CARCASS, WATAIN, and EXHUMED. In the debut of my metal column for this brilliant, bizarro magazine, I interviewed Jeff Walker from Carcass, Erik Danielsson of Watain, and Matt Harvey of Exhumed, asking their thoughts on metal, sex, death, and the afterlife. I toss in reviews of their new albums and a few bad puns. I really need to thank the creator/deaditor in chief, Corpsy, for giving me a shot at this.

KUNG FU BREAKFAST - ISSUE #13
Page 37: “An Invisible Man Hypothetically Visits Wisconsin.” I dusted off an old piece of flash fiction and expanded the story with more sadness and perversion. It’s the one-year anniversary issue of Kung Fu Breakfast and has some amazing work from some of my favorite artists: Jay Kantor, Sean Whitman, Jessica Towne, Nate Eggert, and Kendra Lin.
