Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday - 11/18/09

Hi hi hi, droogs, back again on another Wednesday and hope ya'll are feeling instead of reeling.

Let's keep the chatter down a bit this week as I've been walking around like a Romero castaway, albeit motivated as always.

Over Fangoria.com I have reviews this week of the latest album from WASP, Babylon and the ultra-weird Melvins remix album Chicken Switch, so have a go over yonders to their Musick section. At About.com you can check out my looksee at Coalesce's kickass OxEP as well as the stunning new Voivod DVD Tatsumaki...to think they pulled off the unthinkable. Blacky coming back was worth the ticket alone, but mad props to Dan Mongrain of Martyr for pulling off a rather convincing Piggy...can you imagine the pressure that guy had learning those chops? On a side note, the dude has more hair than Troy Polamalu, wowzers...where's his Head and Shoulders endorsement?

Here at The Metal Minute be on the lookout for reviews of the new Black Breath EP Razor to Oblivion and Death Angel's latest live DVD. I had a great time chatting with both Tony Portaro and Joe Cangelosi of Whiplash last week, so that Take 5 piece ought to creep in here shortly.

Until next, cheers, and thanks as always for your loyal patronage...

Mark, I have Age of Evil on the horn this Friday...pretty good EP, actually...I still haven't seen that new Trek yet, but will ask for it for Christmas

Bob, I of course love English Beat with your influence

Dpth, no worries, hope your vacay was good...VERY eclectic and underground list, kudos

cjk, nice as always...I was hoping to review that AC/DC box set but it's not gonna happen...I am reading Mary Forsberg Weiland's bio and will be reviewing it tomorrow or Friday at the latest

Alex, howdy, bro, thanks for your continued writings....I liked the last Withered pretty good so I'm sure this one'll be good too

Metal Mark said...

Let me guess you made the mistake of going to see Wolverine, Transformers and GI Joe at the theater, but missed out on Star Trek.

cjk_44 said...

ray, the regular Backtracks set is nice. i'm not particularly fond of the overall presentation, but it is nice to have the Bon Scott-era b-sides, etc. in a better sounding version/format.

Ray Van Horn, Jr. said...

Mark, um, no, because of the boy I've been to the movies only a couple times all year and I saw NONE of what was on your list. Not by choice I missed Trek, I guarantee you that.

cjk, more Bon is groovy by me

Ray-I'll think you will like the new Star Trek. I like it even better the second time around.

Ray Van Horn, Jr. said...

metalguy, I can relate, brother...appreciate your coming by, always!

Mark, I can't say I like knowing what I'm getting for Christmas, but I know Trek is in the bag...looking forward to watching it
