I grew up in Flint, Michigan. I remember my father sitting in front of our front door with a shot gun, because people tried breaking in past midnight. I was only 6 years old. It was pretty scary going to middle school with metal detectors, at age 11. Other Kids tried bribing me with cigarettes and pills, to trade for my Pokémon cards. Someone connected with a local gang member, was hired to kill my father, because my father stood up for his father. He believed my Grandfather defended himself and was 100 percent innocent for a murder charge, my Grandfather was arrested for. Guy was dressed in a trench-coat about to pull out something fully loaded and my dad smashed a beer mug over his face. The guy chased my father to a local gas station and my dad locked himself inside the store, till police arrived. I was 12.
Right when we got the hell out of Flint, people broke into the house we moved out of and stole all the copper & metal within. I currently reside in Montana of all places.
Anyways, I don’t give a fuck what people think. This band deserves to be getting all the shine right now. I am happy they survived the slums of Flint and are going on national tours, even doing shows in Europe! They proved it doesn’t matter where you come from, you can be successful anywhere. “Memoirs of a Murderer” is kick ass from to to finish! Real and Raw! This band isn’t fake. Some tracks may even bring tears to the eyes, on the acoustic tip. Great job! Can’t wait to hear more! See ya guys at Knotfest!
Part 2 of Destroy The Archetype Tour in Billings Montana! Sadistik rounded up everyone on the main tour twice, to get a picture with me. Afterwards, I went to Denny’s with the tour manager, Cage, Sadistik and Maulskull. Most hilarious dinner I’ve ever had! My copy of “Movies For The Blind” is signed! Big shout out to Sadistik, Cage and Maulskull! Daniel Jordan flew out from AZ and did the show for free. I’m a huge DJ fan! He’s actually friends with Max Cavalera’s wife and Daughter, so I got to see Soulfly for free, the day before the Cage show. Daniel is the guy with Sunglasses on the porch with me. Daniel Jordan has toured with Esham, Twiztid handed picked him to do Frightfest 2013, in Michigan, with Madchild & Aqualeo, has tracks with Mac Mall, Dolemite and Blowfly! DJ is currently signed to Mad Insanity records, owned my Mars and Kung Fu Vampire! Much love and respect Daniel! killdanieljordan.com!
