Fall 2004 brought about the release of the band's debut full-length "The
Choir". The album sold over 25,000 copies within four months and allowed the band to sell out two national headlining tours with support from Twelve Tribes, Anterrabae, Trivium and others. Alternative Press named them a "Band To Know" in 2005. The album has sold 90,000 copies to date.

"El trato de Argel" ("Life in Algiers", 1580), "Los baños de Argel" ("The Bagnios of Algiers", 1615), "El gallardo español" ("The Gallard Spaniard", 1615) and "La gran sultana" ("The Great Sultana", 1615) were four comedies by Miguel de Cervantes about the life of the galley slaves, called "caitiffs". Cervantes himself had been imprisoned in Algiers (1575–1580). His novel "Don Quixote" also features a subplot with the story of a
(chapters 39-41 of the first part).
Similarly, Walter E. Bezanson notes the "curious mixture of the archaic and the contemporary both in language and materials", leading to the inclusion of antique words such as "kern, scrip, carl, tilth and
", alongside modern technical terms taken "from ship and factory, from the laboratory, from trading, seafaring, and war." Commenting on the rhyme-scheme and the restricted meter, Bezanson responded to the common objection that Melville ought to have composed the work in prose, or at least in blank verse, arguing:
A clan is the character's vampire family. All characters of a single clan allegedly descended from the clan's Antediluvian founders. It is widely accepted that there are thirteen clans with thirteen founders though not all of them are technically Antediluvian. Some clan founders, such as Giovanni or Tremere, usurped their position via Diablerie. Clans may have a social or political component to them but a clan is not something a character chooses it is something they are Embraced into. Those with out a clan are known as
and are considered outsiders.
A controversy arose between partisans of Schley and those of Sampson over their respective claims to the credit of the victory over Cervera's fleet during the recent war. Of that discussion neither officer personally took public notice until after the appearance of a work by Edgar Stanton Maclay entitled "History of the United States Navy". In that book, the author referred to Commodore Schley as a “
, poltroon and coward.” The proofs of the book had been read and approved by various naval officers, among them Rear Admiral Sampson.
It Dies Today (sometimes abbreviated "IDT") is an American metalcore band that formed in Buffalo, New York during September 2001. The band achieved popular success in 2004 with the release of their debut album, "The
Choir". After frontman Nicholas Brooks departed in 2006, just after the release of the band's sophomore effort "Sirens", It Dies Today released "Lividity" in 2009 before going on an indefinite hiatus in 2010. However, with Brooks' return in 2012, the band have re-formed and have begun recording new material again.
On January 19, 2014, a video featuring a new recording, presumably by Mike Hatalak, was posted on the band's Facebook page. The full demo of the recording, titled "Son of Dawn, Brilliant Star", was later released on Lambgoat.com on April 29, 2014, with the band also announcing a set of shows in September to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the release of "The
Choir" on the same day. This is the first track to feature Nicholas Brooks since the release of "Sirens" eight years prior, marking a return to the original lineup for the band. In response to his return, Brooks commented, "I honestly could not be happier to have the opportunity to not only play shows with these dudes again but to write and record a new album with them as well." However, on February 13, 2015, Nicholas Brooks announced that due to a "severe case of writer's block and family life", the potential album effort had been postponed indefinitely.
In addition to having linguistically unique graphic pejoratives, Chinese, like all human languages, has typical disparaging terms for foreign peoples or "ethnophaulisms". Wilkinson (2000: 725-726) lists three commonly used words: "nu" 奴 "slave" (e.g., "Xiongnu" 匈奴 "fierce slaves; Xiongnu people"), "gui" 鬼 "deviI; ghost" ("guilao" or Cantonese Gweilo 鬼佬 "devil men; Western barbarians"), and "lu" 虜"captive;
" ("Suolu" 索虜 "unkempt caitiffs; Tuoba people", now officially written 拓拔 "develop pull"). Unlike official Chinese language reforms, Wilkinson (2000: 730) notes, "Unofficially and not infrequently graphic pejoratives were added or substituted" in loanword transcriptions, as when "Falanxi" 法蘭西 (with "lan" 蘭 "orchid; moral excellence") "France" was written "Falangxi" 法狼西 (with "lang" 狼 "wolf").
Even if it took a century and a half for many of the book's virtues to be realised, enough was recognised at the time to make the book one of Hazlitt's most successful. Unsurprisingly the Tory "Blackwood's Magazine" lamented that the pillory had fallen into disuse and wondered what "adequate and appropriate punishment there is that we can inflict on this rabid
". But the majority of the reviewers were enthusiastic. For example, the "Eclectic Review" marvelled at his ability to "hit off a likeness with a few artist-like touches" and "The Gentleman's Magazine", with a few reservations, found his style "deeply impregnated with the spirit of the masters of our language, and strengthened by a rich infusion of golden ore...".
In 1896 he was appointed lighthouse keeper at Old Field Point, and in 1901 received an appointment at the New York Navy Yard. He edited the "Journal of William Maclay" and was the author of "History of the United States Navy", which occasioned much controversy and brought about his dismissal from government employ, by order of President Roosevelt, in 1901. The ground of this action, following Maclay's refusal of an official request for his resignation, was a passage in the "History" stigmatizing Rear Admiral Winfield Scott Schley as a “
, poltroon and coward” for his conduct in the naval fight off Santiago, Cuba on 3 July 1898. Maclay also wrote "Reminiscences of the Old Navy" and "The History of American Privateers".
