Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday - 8/13/08

Howdy doo, faithful readers...

Another week blitzes on through and more of the same insanity, with a bonehead maneuver on the part of yours truly, which just adds to the reason why this lad ought to get more sleep at night. Heavy sigh...

This week has been a Metal Church kinda week as I get ready to do an interview with Kurdt Vanderhoof for Metal Maniacs mag. Easily their latest album This Present Wasteland gets top dog honors on the spin factor, though I did give the new Norma Jean a couple plays as well and trying to gain my impressions of it. Great band with a lot of heart.

Not feeling too blabby this week, but I do want to give a shout out to Bob Vinyl. Get better, my friend. With that, let's have 'em, folks...

Metal Church - Metal Church

Hey Ray,

i'm on vacation, so metal has been limited. i've managed to listen to the following:

1. Mouth of the Architect - Quietly
2. Queensryche - Greatest Hits
3. Opeth - Watershed
4. Angels & Airwaves - i-Empire

since we're at the beach we've played a lot of my iPod (classic rock) and my sister's iPod (Buffett, reggae).

summer went by awfully quick this year. i guess that's the craziness of kids getting ready for the next school year.

looks like a lot of us are in the Metal Church and Blackmore's Night groove this week!

Mark, I remember you mentioning Sweet Cheater and can't recall if it's Ratt related; I know Pearcy has a new solo album due out

Steve, cool choices; nothing says up all night metal like Krokus, you midnight maniac!

Ripple, glad to hear it, thanks for checking in

Ian, thumbs up as always!

You vacation dudes make me envious! LOL... cjk, can't argue with those picks, and I know that summer and the beach to me equates into Steely Dan, The Doors and Seals and Crofts

Fred, great to see ya, broski! Nice picks as well.
