Of Scantily Clad Lady Pirates & Cursing Priests

So it’s a slow news day & then I found this amusing link on, which in turn sends one to the WNEP website who originally broke it.  This one’s a love story, I think – but you be the judge. It would seem a sexy female pirate statue outside of an antique shop in […]

Video: Amon Amarth – Guardians of Asgaard

Thanks to Sin’s Metal News for this one – below is the new video off of ‘Twilight of the Thunder God’ by those angry Norsemen, Amon Amarth.  Featuring guest vocals by Lars Goran Petrov of Entombed.  Yeah, it’s awesome. Big arms, everyone.  Big arms.

Death of a Weekend

Y’know, Sundays bum me out sometimes. They always seem to me to be the death of the weekend, the last agonizing throes of freedom before the weekly gauntlet is to be run on Monday morning. Fuckin’ ray of sunshine, ain’t I? Worse, I usually have to go in to work for a while (which was […]

Al & The Black Cats – Ravari Room, Columbus OH 3-27-09

Another great show at the Ravari room, this time an eclectic triple bill featuring punk-infused bluegrass and decent psychobilly.  Here’s how it shook out; Hellsfire Sinners – were first up and played a great full set of their unusual mixture of bluegrass, country, punk with a touch of metal thrown in for good measure.  This […]

Music Review: Papa Roach – Metamorphosis

Papa Roach has an image problem.  When starting to work on this review, I popped their new CD “Metamorphosis” into Winamp & immediately noticed they were categorized as ‘Rap Metal’.   While that might have been true at one point, this is a band that has obviously been influenced by their time on Cruefest (specifically Sixx […]

Miss Me?

You know a man’s busy when he doesn’t even update his blog about St. Patrick’s Day. Now that’s just sad, eh? The Christmas day for alcoholics & mums the word on the ole’ Rim of Hell? Well, I DID go celebrate the day (OF COURSE!) but have been very busy with the paying gig recently. […]
