We didn't have any insurance (we couldn't afford it). And, they can't compinsate for us unless the gear is recovered and damaged. I'm kind of in a panic right now along with the rest of the band.

I don't know how to react to this, or even what to do. the police said they'd do their best to find all of our gear.

So, what do I do? How to I like, deal with this? I'm furious and on edge right now so...don't go off on me.

Death Metal will live forever
