I always take a shot of the lighthouse from directly below. The band’s latest full-length CD is titled Resistance. After paying for my admission in the gift shop, I proceeded outside where you can stare straight up at the lighthouse.
Evan and Scott of Ohio metallers Skeletonwitch caught up with me recently at their Pomona, California stop out at the Glass House to discuss briefly about the new album, current touring conditions, and everything else thrown in between.
But that didn’t stop Fred and his little sister Sophie from heading off for Harker Elementary School. Sophie was two years Fred’s junior and a shy and retiring creature who preferred the company of books to other people. She was way too smart for school and dreaded each and every day she had to spend in the company of the hooligans who daily disrupted her fourth grade class with their shenanigans.
I think it’s AOL, really. 1996 was the year they took over the internet. That meant that Joe Idiot who basically wanted television with a keyboard could find out about death metal. Joe Idiot and his friends decided they wanted to be cool like the death metal people, but they wanted the music to be just like their indie rock under the skin. That’s how you get metal-flavored indie rock like metalcore, shoegaze black metal, and that new kind of ultra-kvlty black metal that’s basically punk rock in a minor key.
Fred freed himself from the prison of the past and placed himself solidly in the pleasingly present moment of the sublime final movement of Brahms’s Trio in A minor for Clarinet, Cello and Piano.
Saturday, March 26th: The Machine at Brooklyn Bowl. This premiere Pink Floyd tribute tours endlessly, but there’s no such thing as too much Pink Floyd, right?

Nicholas Cage and his so Weston are also the creators of the the comic book “Voodoo Child” which is very popular among the metal music fans. The comic book sells for about $15.00 and is published by Virgin Comics.
Well, that is one depressingly short list! I guess I could add that the dates for the annual Rock on the Range concert at Crew Stadium have been announced. It will be held on May 21 and 22. The lineup has not been announced yet, but Saving Abel is rumored to be on the roster.
