The Importance of Manowar.

Coming soon- a multi-blog, possibly multi-video analysis of the importance of Manowar, from the eighties scene to the modern viking/folk metal scene. This will go into the influence that they had on many bands, and the indirect influence that they have had on bands that you would never expect! Make all the haters read this blog series or maybe just tell them to LEAVE THE HALL!

Coming the next week or so! In Defense of Kiss (Video).

In the next week or so (depending) you can expect a fully articulated video (probably using some new software I'm a bit shaky at) that is a defense video of one of the most contentious bands of the past 50 years, Kiss. In it I will argue for their importance in influencing (countless) Hard Rock and Heavy Metal bands over time, as well as dispelling the notion that they are a "gimmick band". Look for it on here SOON!

Here it is (A Week + Late!) My Top 5 90's Norwegian Black Metal Albums of All Time!

I know some will think my picks stretch the term "black metal" as far as being more in the Viking or "Progressive" Black metal vein but I don't care.

I even threw in a few "Runners up" for good measure. It was hard to do this list because even at this point in my life I'm (re)discovering bands I may had missed back when I first got into this style of metal.

REVIEW: Metallica Hardwired to Self-Destruct 3/5

Yeah I know it's late.
Not a bad album by any means, and maybe just because I think Metallica "learned their lesson" regarding production, etc- that I am giving them a decent review ;)
