For What are Metal Musicians Thankful?
As you are no doubt aware, dear readers, this Thursday is Thanksgiving, in which Americans gorge themselves to deal with the pain of being surrounded by family members. As part of the annual tradition of celebrating the genocide of the Native Americans via the consumption of Turkey, everyone is supposed to concentrate on those things for which they are thankful (e.g., “I’m thankful I’m not a Native American.”).
But for what are metal musicians and bands thankful? I’m totally speculating here, but if I had to guess, I’d guess that…
