Who are those two playing in the Marshmallow Ghosts?

The great and talented William Schaff was in Savannah for a few days hanging out with the Graveface folks. For Graveface Fest I had planned on wearing a mask reminiscent of those that Schaff is so famous for… instead he painted it on my face directly.

Happy Halloween! Here in our second year with the furhoof Halloween Split Series we have Man Eating Sloth & Blackrune working together on what they have called Devil, Do You Dare Approach Me?
It seems to be a perfect fit for some awesome horror film soundtrack. These two songs were meant to be listened together back to back, in a dark room during the full moon.
1. Man Eating Sloth - Depths
2. Blackrune - Oracle of Night

The National have been huge supporters of Barack Obama in both of his Presidential campaigns. They’ve performed at rallies and benefits, sold T-shirts to make money for the cause, and lent their song “Fake Empire” from Boxer to an ad in 2008.
Apparently, nobody told all that to whoever put together this pro-Mitt Romney video, which uses ”Fake Empire” as its soundtrack. Yes, the exact same song that Obama used in his 2008 ad. The video was made by a group called Ohio University Students for Romney, and does not appear to be an official campaign video.
Naturally, the National are livid about this. Frontman Matt Berninger posted the following comment on YouTube:
“Our music was used without our permission in this ad. The song you’re using was written about the same backward, con game policies Romney is proposing. We encourage all students to educate themselves about the differences between the inclusive, pro-social, compassionate, forward-thinking policies of President Obama and the self-serving politics of the neo-conservative movement and Mitt Romney. Every single person involved in the creation of the music you’re using is voting for President Obama.” - Matt Berninger
