IN WHICH WE PLAYED THE WAITING GAME
So the three-day weekend kinda threw our schedule out of whack; you may have noticed that we still haven’t finished announcing the line-up for our Magical Mystery Tour, and we didn’t get to finish our list of The Top 25 Modern Metal Guitarists, either. Both of those blessed events will go down next week, though, when we’re back for a full five days! So get stoked.
In the meantime, let’s review all the fun we managed to pack into this week’s abbreviated set:
- We debuted new music from four bands signed to Black Market Activities — Ed Gein, Engineer, Fit For An Autopsy, and Khann — as well as new music from Bloodlights.
- We spoke to some guy named Devin Townsend.
- Woods of Ypres’ Shane Madden continued his exclusive tour blog for us.
- We checked out the latest release from Autopsy.
- We celebrated the amazing amazingness that is the album art for Opeth’s Heritage.
- We were not surprised to learn that Emmure’s Frankie Palmeri is completely lacking in originality.
- We wondered if metal is a movement of the youth, inapplicable in its rebellion and ferocity to us olds.
- We made the case for the movie Jennifer’s Body as an underrated cinemetal masterpiece.
- We actually had something nice to say about Limp Bizkit (sort of).
- We introduced you to the future of appliancecore.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. You will always be at the forefront of our thoughts, dreams, and prayers.
