Imagine it now, going on board a rickety old tub, with hundreds of hardcore bearded men and grungy women, all craving one thing. Metal. Each one of them getting ready to go mental and start to destroy the ship which keeps them afloat, they will devour greasy chicken legs and become a beast on the waters.I’m just kidding, but you can actually imagine how awesome this would be, going on a metal themed cruise which crosses the Atlantic for 5 nights of partying, would be sweet.
Ooooh Heavy Metal Halloween song! Who would of thought it. Actually it’s pretty good, it may be from last year but music never ages does it? Chris does the job with scary dark and eerie riffs and those deep tones are just magnificent (although the bedroom leaves a lot to be desired – maybe film in a crypt next time).
Today I came across this really interesting post by Lauren Wise on whether Heavy Metal is the Devils Music or if it’s all a load of hype. She makes some great points and I thought I would share some with you. I mean some people really love to pigeon hole us as either one thing or another but as the article below points out that’s just b#@l*cks!
What Was The First Heavy Metal Band? OK, this was a question asked on the Yahoo answers site, I was intrigued so I did a bit of digging about.
The term “Heavy Metal” is said by many, to have originated from a line in Steppenwolfs “Born to be Wild”. The lyric was “Heavy Metal Thunder”.
You can now buy BlackWolf Taking Root online . This is the first EP Blackwolf have released and it’s kind of a big deal. We have been friends of this band for a while now and have been watching their progress from a new and relativly unknown band to being Semi Finalists of the Scottish Highway to Hell! We last saw these guys at the Bull Dog Bash year and they Rock! With pedal to the metal, hard and fast rock sounds they take no prisoners and make no apologies. I love the energy they have and all of the tracks have a timeless feel to them.
