Strapping Young Lad – The New Black

After their brutal album Alien, Devin and Co. returned to work on their 5th studio album, and I for one I’m really looking forward to another aural assault from the canadian metallers.

Check out a sample from the new album here.

In other SYL news their first album (Heavy as a real heavy thing) has been re-released by Century Media. Along side the remastered album are 4 bonus tracks, the video to S.Y.L and notes from Devin in the accompanying booklet.

The New Black is due for release on July 7th.

Browser Sync

Only Stumbled across this Firefox extension while on the Google homepage at work.
I have multiple installations of firefox ( Desktop / Laptop ) and have been awaiting a tools to help me keep bookmarks on the machines matching.

OK so what does the extension do?
Well on first apperance it can sync Cookies/bookmarks/stored passwords and it seems even windows/tabs can be stored.

In all honesty I only require the bookmarks but the other items are a good idea, like saving your last open pages when you closed the browser down so you can conitue browsing on the save machine or another machine. Even the history can be stored.

All of the storable elements have to the option to enable encryption ( defaulted for cookies and stored passwords ).

More Dolls

The Dresden Dolls appeared on Jules Holands show on Friday. They played 2 of their songs from their new album (My Alcoholic Friends / Necessary Evil )

Yesterday I was told that they were doing another 1 off gig in London in November, so had to get some tickets for Ricci, my sister and I who all had a great time at the last gig.
