Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday - 5/25/11

Greetings once again, readers!

I'm in a bit of a somber mood watching all of these awful tornadoes rip up the country. Yet again Nature proves to be the great equalizer over the industrial world. Prayers out to all those affected by these brutal storms.

Stay tuned this week at The Metal Minute for a look at the new Enslaved EP, the latest from Death Mental, the reissue of Sick from Duff McKagan's Loaded and the faboo new tin case re-release of AC/DC's concert film Let There Be Rock.

Though I'm not really into celeb worship and shows that pander to the already famous, congrats to Hines Ward for taking Dancing With the Stars. Steeltown, represent! A bigger congrats to Kirstie Alley for showing that a 60 year old woman has the power to dig deep inside and pull off what she did. I was in awe of her. And where will you be today, when Oprah signs off? Me, I'll be working.

Forevermore, thank you for being here, people...

cjk, terrific list as always. I finished the Mustaine book not too long ago. Good read, confirmed a lot of what I suspected and made me happy I chose the right side in the old Megadeth/Metallica wars. Quite a Game 6 tonight with Boston and Tampa, huh? That was a great game.

Mark, let me know your impressions of Zombi once you've soaked those albums up. They're not a metal band, but they are absolutely one of my absolute favorite bands of the past decade. I play the tar of them every time I get them off the shelf.

Literally no music for me this week, I'm just not in the mood for anything right now.

It's nice to see Warsawpack make an appearance. That record impressed me when it came out, and this is a good reminder to revisit it.

Ray Van Horn, Jr. said...

Enjoy the revisit, Chuck. I love that album. Glad Bob got it to me. It's rather brilliant and I wish hip hop still had that kind of verve with something to say.
