Spins of the Minute: 3/16/13

                                               


Hey there, readers.  Yeah, I've fallen off the pace here at The Metal Minute, but the traffic's spiked once again nevertheless.  Personal matters and the need to recharge in solitude for a couple of evenings compelled me to get off-track.  I love each and every one of you for keeping the momentum growing. 

This week I was asked to write a guest editorial for Ghost Cult magazine regarding the butt ugly Queensryche division, so be on the lookout for that in future days.  Meanwhile, I expect to pound on this site with previously-promised reviews and more including the latest Hendrix vaults package, People, Hell and Angels.

Be there or be nowhere.

I have the new Hendrix - just haven't listened to it yet. It's a beautiful exercise to examine his voluminous work.

I am amazed how dark "Promised Land" is, but it still holds up well all these years later.
