Seriously, it's Wednesday?
How goes with y'all out there? Hope The Metal Minute is keeping everyone entertained out there; I always aim to please when I'm on a roll! Be ready for more "stuff" like Chuck Barris of the old Gong Show would put it, with upcoming reviews of new releases by Tim "Ripper" Owens, Pelican, Doro, Nihilitia and the vinyl release of the new Sunn O))) album, Monoliths & Dimensions. I've listened to three sides so far and holy shite, is this one superfreakout evil record...
Upcoming changes in my life as I gave notice at my current job in preparation of a new one. I'm ecstatic to be able to pull this off in the type of market we're in these days, needless to say. It was done in the interest of my family so hopefully this new post will be "the one," shall we say...
Still in awe from the Isis/Pelican show the other night; if they hit your town, do not miss it! With Tombs opening in impressive fashion, chalk this tour up as priority one!
As such, I've been spinning a lot of Pelican including their upcoming EP Ephemeral as well as that Nihilitia album which was the perfect vibe coming home from the show on Sunday night. Brian Setzer is the top flight runner of the week, however, with his Sun Records tribute, Rockabilly Riot Vol. 1. My folks had the chance to visit Graceland and Sun Records recently (I am way envious), so out this fantastic covers album came off the shelf and stuck with me throughout the week. Get rhythm, kiddos...
I hope to bury myself in Joel McElver's Cliff Burton book for future review here at The Metal Minute, while I've managed to carve out a little tube time with the Stanley Cup finals, which is getting real good now, plus I had a mini horror marathon featuring Gothkill, 30 Days of Night, Hostel and Pulse, not to mention The Great Kat's Beethoven's Guitar Shred DVD and half of From the Underground, a cool indie rock DVD featuring Sonic Youth, Radiohead, The White Stripes, Beck and others in a loose-fitting live environment. Well-recommended...
K, storm's a-brewing and my head's a stewing...
