Greeting, friends, how ya'll be, as the late Justin Wilson would pipe...

The first draft of my novel is complete and the editing phase is under way.

I listened to a little bit of Pink Moon too, but didn't finish (it was in the car). Did you get the Raw Power re-issue?

Two big surprises for me: First, the two Paul Dianno records were TERRIBLE. Second, the Slaughter record (considering it was made by a bad band in an awful genre) wasn't too bad.

Ray Van Horn, Jr. said...

Bob, nope on the reissue...I got the press announcement which put me in the mood to hear it, so I grabbed the regular copy. You were DEFINITELY on the Alice kick, wow! Slaughter, though? Ummmm...

Dpth, have you heard the new Exodus? It rips!

Mark, is that Christopher Lee album the adventure metal album I got an email recently about? Moreover, how is it?

cjk, King's X is like fine wine, you know the adage...

bob_vinyl said...

I have no excuses for listening to Slaughter, but it wasn't too bad. Of course, I may just have been thankful it wasn't more Paul Dianno.

Ray Van Horn, Jr. said...

well, I can't beat you up too bad since you had on the Nick Drake :)

Ezra said...

Triptykon-eparistera daimones
Dillinger escape plan-option paralysis
Wall of Voodoo-The index masters

Metal Mark said...

Yes, it's that CD. It's fairly boring.

Ray Van Horn, Jr. said...

Mark, that's a bummer. I was skeptical but open-minded to it.

Klepto, I always admire your batch artist selections...Slainte to this list!

Ezra, I've not heard those albums yet. Your thoughts?

Ezra said...

Triptykon is absolutely crushing. If you liked monotheist, then pick it up.
Dillinger, I haven't fully digested yet. It's definitely Dillinger, only more so.

cjk_44 said...

Ray, King's X are one of those bands that i constantly revisit and i am reminded anew of how perfect that trio is.

Ray and Ezra, the new Dillinger is great. it does take some time to fully absorb. i hear more and more Mike Patton and Faith No More influences really shining through this time.

Ray Van Horn, Jr. said...

Ezra, cool on Trip...I was wondering where Warrior's mindframe was in ditching Frost for a new have to have his kind of reputation (Cold Lake be damned) to pull that kind of stunt off and have everyone follow

cjk, I can't say enough about King's X and I think Ty Tabor's one of my favorite interviews of all-time...super-nice cat...I'll get to Dillinger soon enough; they've really impressed me the past few albums, considering years ago when I saw them, I was like, "WTF?" but couldn't take my eyes off of them because they were literally all over that stage, amp tops and all
