Due to unfortunate legal circumstances our last show as Starscream, will take place on May 12th at Shea Stadium. Event details can be found here and here. After May 12th we will exclusively be using our new name, Infinity Shred.
The first Infinity Shred single, “Wayfinder,” is now available for free download from Soundcloud and Bandcamp and our first release under the new name, “EP 001 (Gnar Dream),” will be available May 15th digitally via Bandcamp and iTunes, and physically from our website.
For a longer explanation as to why the name change has come about, please check the most recent news post on our website.
Thank you for these past five years. We’re excited to see what the future has in store and hope you will join us on this new journey.

Flag Designs for Earth & The Solar System in 2020 and Beyond
Redittor thefrek has designed a kick-ass series of flags for the Solar System and its planets. But flags, as we all know, change over time. So he’s also created possible revisions for those flags reaching as far as 800 years into the future.
Here you’ll find thefrek’s concept designs for “Earth/Solar flags throughout the future,” but we highly recommend checking out the banners he envisioned for each individual planet, and especially this batch of future-flags from a Martian Revolution, when the Red Planet “declares itself to be the dominant force in the Solar System, and claims all other planets as part of its empire.”
2020: Humanity is only present on Earth and the Moon.
2044: Humans have settlements on Earth, the Moon, Mars and its moons, and Ceres.
2087:Two more objects in the Asteroid Belt have been colonized as well as Europa and Venus.
2204: Humans have settled on every large body in the Solar System. Terraforming is well underway on most planets, and interstellar voyages are beginning.
2355: Another star system is incorporated into the Solar Federation.
2412: Another system has been conquered.
2484: The Solar Federation now has too many systems to show them on the flag - Each circle represents one star system, with the Solar System in the centre.
2514: Yet more systems are being settled.
2544: Expansion is occurring at a breakneck pace.
2639: Several different alien races now exist within the Solar Federation, co-existing peacefully with humanity.
2812: 800 years into the future, the Solar Federation is the leading force in the galaxy, with all denizens of our galaxy being given equal representation. Humanity has taken the responsibility to ensure peace and prosperity everywhere in the Milky Way.

Decided to step out of my lair of laziness (it’s been hectic, regular schooldays end next week so expect an improvement in this blog’s quality) to bring you all this great piece of music. It really, really is an amazing live performance, and truly one of the greatest bands of the Northern Europe. My iPhone’s alarm goes off in exactly six hours, so good night to you all!
P.S. I usually refer to the smart ones among you, and now again those people might notice that the text in the video mentions Verdens Største Land, not Bagamoyo as it is. ;)
