Playing a specific song before you go on, drinking a glass of scotch, retying your shoelaces 3 times(i have a friend who does this, it's really weird ) jacking off or anything??


Do you have any pre-gig/show rituals?
There's only one boss I listen to, and that's why I'm unemployed.

We do "Band Prayer", it's a series of shots called the four horsemen;

War - Whiskey, Rye, or Scotch
Famine - Vodka
Pestilence - Tequila
Death - Jager

Not recommended for new drinkers or light weights

Never heard of that before

And isn't tuning up just standard? ;p Wouldn't see that as a ritual unless you do it in so weird fashion..

My ritual begins the week before the gig. That is my denial phase.
When the gig is a mere few days away, my denial phase becomes my bargaining phase.
The day before the gig is my phase of depression.
The day of the gig is usually my acceptance phase.

Then I hit the stage.

I bury my clothes in dirt and don't wash for a week in preparation. Then, an hour before the gig I bathe in pig blood and apply chalk to my face in place of corpse paint.

I then burn down a church and sacrifice a baby lamb to satan, before punching myself in the throat so my voice goes all funny.

Metal as ****
I have nothing important to say

I helped with school plays a few a times and they had a ritual where they would pray to a dead student right before the grand opening of a show. It was weird lol

i talk to the previous bands and acted like i enjoyed their set when really i hated it, then i tune up
#28
in this order:

warm up my vocals in my car
roll a tiny joint
take a piss
smoke joint with drummer
go on stage, set up all my shit
jam.

And then afterwards, probably another, bigger joint that I smoke with fans/the other bands. Always good to network
#30
The only time I ever went on stage sober I realised how shit my band was and quit the next day. It was all good fun while drunk though.
#31
i eat a couple of dead fetuses before going on stage. keeps things in perspective.
