New stuff we've added or are going to add


Well it's been a long time since an update here, we have a new drummer, Jay Sanders. We will be launching holdonhumanity.com withing a few weeks so look for us on there too now! Look for great music from HoH

Well we finally found that singer we were looking for! His name is James Annuci, and as far as we can see, he is the perfect installment we have been looking for! Look foward to some great vocals from this guy, and look foward to some great tunez from us, HoH!


Right now as we speak Mike is giving guitar lessons! Go to the guitar lessons page for more information.


Well we finally have a name, Hold on Humanity! We are still looking for a drummer / singer, and have found our recording engineer. We are laying down whatever tracks we can right now. If you are a singer / drummer contact us for more information.


Well after a day in a snowstorm trying to get flyers around for a drummer singer and recording engineer, which was unsuccessful, we thought of the idea of having the fans out there try to suggest a name for us. Check the main page for more info or e-mail BASSPLAYERSL@AOL.COM


Well it's the band again. I say the band because we are still undecided of a name. After a long 6months as a new band we are way ahead of schedule, in the studio with 8 songs and will continue to push foward throttles straight ahead. We have lost a singer and a drummer however in the process. IF YOU ARE A SINGER OR A DRUMMER OR A RECORDING ENGINEER GO TO THE CONTACT US PORTION OF THIS PAGE AND CONTACT US.


Well guys, we finally thought of a name, Metal Intake! And now we've got a common goal to go by. Stay tuned for more info and check back often for updates, new info, and feel free to contact any of the band members you wish!


Need to find out the weather, but don't wanna leave our site? That problem is solved now, go to the bottom of the "BAND" page and have fun with the weather! Also click on the link at the bottom of our "HOME" page to hear one of our songs in midi format... Woe Is You.


We finally thought of a name, 27Deep. Yay.


Well though it took a long time before we found a drummer, it was worth every minute of it cuz we have found the best drummer of New York Shaun Mandaloni.
Email us a name and we will give many suprises to you.


Ok all you fans out there, here's some more news for you all, besides working on new songs and new demos here and there. We are looking for a new drummer as of now, if you are in the Queens area please contact one of us via e-mail with any information! If you're a new visitor and dont know what ABATWAR is all about, we'll tell you, just contact any one of us on the "CONTACT US" portion of the website.


A lot... and I mean A LOT has been going on with the band since our big break-up in February. We've gotten back together but with a whole new line-up. It now consists still the core of the group, Lead Guitarist Mike and Rythm Guitarist / Backup Vocalist Carl and Drummer Mike. But here's the biggie, New Bassist Adem and New Vocalist Muhib have joined the group, not all their info is on the site yet, but you can check out what is there. In the band section there will still be pics of older members up, for you nostalgiac people out there. The date now is July 12 2001, we will be going into the studio to maybe produce a NEW and IMPROVED demo tomorrow, most likely it won't be finished but we are wishful thinkers. Here's another biggie for you people out there, the name has changed, we're no longer Slanted View (sob) but... ABATWAR!! Well that's all the news for now, Abatwar will try to play at a club near you, It will take me (MIKE) some time to update the site to its copmletion as so much has changed. So be patient!!


Slanted View is back! With a new bassist now we're gonna start hitting the studio real soon again. Adem Birson is his name and making sure we thump harder than ever is his game! We're in the process of fiding a new vocalist for our style of music. If you're interested in trying out go to the "contact us" portion of our site and contact us for a tryout time and date. Slanted View hopes to see you soon at a club near you!!

Well there's a lot coming up for Slanted View as of now. This Friday March 2nd we will be playing at the St. Francis Prep Talent show.
