10:31 pm - 'The Great Tribulation' Review

The year is 2008 and it is finally time for the vision of No Assembly Required to be unleashed upon this world. It all began seven long years ago as an idea and in those years has been turned into what is now known as 'The Great Tribulation', an album capturing the true passion and intensity of modern heavy metal like no band before. That's seven years of dedication and hard work from a band that knows no boundaries and can go as far as they want to go and even further. No Assembly Required are back and we had all better prepare to rebuild what is left behind in their devastating wake.

From the beginning you realize these past seven years were not spent lightly. 'The Great Tribulation' opens with the full-on metal assault of "I Hate", pounds through the intense groove of tracks like "Russia" and "Of Sin and Suffering...", while also giving you some room to breathe on tracks like the hook-laden "A Day In February" and the awe-inspiring "Pictures of You", which features guest vocals by Shane of Silverstein. The album's most beautiful and emotional moment comes in the track "Internation Love Affair", a track that transports you to a completely different world.

All the members of No Assembly Required are at their musical best on 'The Great Tribulation' and prove they are a force to be reckoned with in the metal world. Vocalist Luca Mele screams, growls, and sings his way through 11 tales of love, hate, and destruction. Guitarist System lays down some of metal's sickest guitar riffs and at times makes you question if there is more than one guitarist in the band. Bassist Paul Amaral and drummer Dave Saylor feed off each other to create a deeper more intense sound that makes NAR unique.

In a world where there is little or no creativity left, No Assembly Required prove there are still original ideas out there. With a new album and a sound only described as "intense vibecore" by the band and their legions of fans, No Assembly Required are set to take over the world. We've waited seven long years for this and 2008 is the year of 'The Great Tribulation'...

3:41 am - Someone finally bashes Dimebag and his fans...

Are you fucking kidding me? I knew someone would start the idiocy sooner or later, but this was completely uncalled for.


Please, voice your opinion and email that address. We can't let people sit here and stereotype all of us just because of one mentalcase with problems.

x-posted everywhere.

So, I lost my old computer, along with all my NAR songs. I've been able to recover most from the helpful links on their site, but I can't find 11 Cent Solution, which was my favourite. Does any one have a copy of this they could send to me somehow? I've been trying to show this song to my friend for awhile now.

Thanks guys.

9:04 pm - Hil -to the- arious.

This was an actual letter sent out by St. Mary's Catholic Church.

If Your Child is a Gothic, Reform Through the Lord!

Listed below are some warning signs to indicate if your
child may have gone astray from the Lord.

Gothic (or goth) is a very obscure and often dangerous
culture that young teenagers are prone to participating in. The gothic culture leads young, susceptible minds into an imagined world of evil,darkness, and violence. Please seek immediate attention through counselling, prayer,
and parental guidance to rid your child of Satan's temptations if five or more of the following are applicable to your child:

-Frequently wears black clothing.

-Wears band and/or rock t-shirts.

-Wears excessive black eye makeup, lipstick or nailpolish.

-Wears any odd, silver jewelry or symbols. Some of these include:
reversed crosses, pentagrams, pentacles, ankhs or various
other Satanic worshipping symbols.

-Shows an interest in piercings or tattoos.

-Listens to gothic or any other anti-social genres of
music. (Marilyn Manson claims to be the anti-Christ, and publicly speaks
against the Lord. Please discard any such albums IMMEDIATELY.)

-Associates with other people that dress, act or speak eccentrically.

-Shows a declining interest in wholesome activities, such as: the Bible, prayer, church o! r sports.

-Shows an increasing interest in death, vampires, magic, the occult, witchcraft or anything else that involves Satan.

-Takes drugs.

-Drinks alcohol.

-Is suicidal and/or depressed.

-Cuts, burns or partakes in any other method of self-mutilation. (This is a Satanic ritual that uses pain to detract from the light of God and His love. Please seek immediate attention for this at your local mental health center.)

-Complains of boredom.

-Sleeps too excessively or too little.

-Is excessively awake during the night.

-Dislikes sunlight or any other form of light. (This pertains to vampires promoting the idea that His light is of no use.)

-Demands an unusual amount of privacy.

-Spends large amounts of time alone.

-Requests time alone and quietness. (This is so that your chid may speak to evil sprits through meditation.)

-Insists on spending time with friends while unaccompanied by an adult.

-Disregards authority figures; teachers, priests, nuns and elders are but a few examples of this.

-Misbehaves at school.

-Misbehaves at home.

-Eats excessively or too little.

-Eats goth-related foods. Count Dracula cereal is an example of this.

-Drinks blood or expresses an interest in drinking blood. (Vampires believe this is how to attain Satan. This act is very dangerous and should be stopped immediately.)

-Watches cable television or any other corrupted media sources. (Ask your local church for proper programs that your child may watch.)

-Plays videos games that contains violence or role-playing nature.

-Uses the internet excessively and frequently makes time for the computer.

-Makes Satanic symbols and/or violently shakes head to music.

-Dances to music in a provocative or sexual manner.
-Expresses an interest in sex.
-Is homosexual and/or bisexual.

-Pursues dangerous cult religions. Such include: Satanism, Scientology, Philosophy, Paganism, Wicca, Hinduism and Buddhism.

-Wears pins, stickers or anything else that contains these various phrases: "I'm so gothic, I'm dead", "woe is me", "I'm a goth".

-Claims to be a goth.

If five or more of these apply to your child, please intervene immediately. The gothic culture is dangerous and Satan thrives within it. If any of these problems persist, enlist your child into your local mental health center.
