I don’t know about you folks, but when I shit, I need to read. It could be a magazine, a book, the back of a toothpaste tube…something, anything. I like to read and drop anchor, and always have.

After finishing my most recent bathroom book (Albert Camus’ “The Stranger”), I started a book I had bought years ago and forgot about: “Pygmy,” by one of my favorite authors, Chuck Palahniuk.

This has nothing to do with Abiotic, who are now recording — but I need to vent.

I am curious as to whether any of you folks have been able to get through this book, because 13 pages in, I am finding myself extremely perturbed. The book is completely written in the voice of a foreign exchange student, hell-bent on terrorism, and is written in broken English. So, it’s extremely hard to follow.

I am thinking of abandoning ship. Should I? Or should I keep reading? I just want to know if its worth it.

So, Abiotic — who just signed with Metal Blade — entered Sonic Assault Studios in Cape Coral, Florida, on April 23 with producer Charles J and engineer Phil Pluskota to begin recording their debut album for a late 2012 release.

The band announced that the cover artwork for the LP will be created by Daniel McBride.
