“It is written that thy shall only cover thyself in the color of the flag and the sabbath and eat the curd of the bean, the apple of the ground and, er…the toast of the french” – Tony Shephard, disciple of the storm

The legendary UK crust/metal band Deviated Instinct recently crossed the pond for a North American tour. At least some of the Possessed (by Seitan) horde were lucky enough to see them on their West Coast dates, where we were truly NAILED after hearing such classics as ‘Rock n’ Roll Conformity’ and ‘Despair’ played live. Oooof!

A little known fact about the penners of ‘Pearls Before Swine’ – they’ll eat plenty of other things before they even think of eating swine! Our P(BS) horde auxiliary in Portland, otherwise known as Isa, cooked up a feast for the Deviated Instinct crew on their North West pit stop. Here are some pics of the mayhem that ensued!

Reborned Miscarriage or Pesto Scrambled Tofu with Walnuts? You decide

The most important part of Pumpkin French Toast is the CRUUUUSSSSTTT

The Conquest for Eternity is over and the winner is ROASTED FUCKING FINGERLINGS!!

Tony, Mid, and Alicia tuck in...


Many thanks to Isa and the Deviated Instinct mob for giving us a glimpse through the looking glass (and letting me make a bunch of shit puns out of their hard work!) Cheers guys, and safe travels!  – pranjalistkrieg


Sanctuary from the Laaaaaaaaaw

Posted in Uncategorized on September 2, 2010 by possessedbyseitan

Farm Sanctuary is an awesome organization, which operates two huge shelters to “rescue, rehabilitate and provide lifelong care for hundreds of animals who have been rescued from stockyards, factory farms, and slaughterhouses.”

One of the shelters is a 300-acre farm three hours north of where I live in California, and every now and then Farm Sanctuary organizes events and tours of the facility so us outsiders can see how things are run there and spend some time with a bunch of rescued cows, pigs, sheep, goats, turkeys and chickens, among others.

This in itself sounds like a pretty incredible way to spend a day, but couple of weeks ago, I got a flyer for something even more awesome – a particularly metal sounding excursion called the ‘Twilight Tour’ which promised to provide an “inside glimpse into the nocturnal lives of farm animals”.

Nocturnal wanderings through bestial realms? Needless to say, this was an offer I couldn’t refuse. I donned my Maiden shirt and made the drive singing ‘Sanctuary’ for three hours, after which I spent a (black) magickal few hours chilling with the horned ones (well, non-horned ones too, but you know what I mean…)
