Heavy Metal Monday: King Diamond

February 21, 2011

Be afraid…be VERY afraid.  Actually, don’t.  Kim Bendix Petersen may look scary, but he’s just a normal musician who likes to paint his face and act weird.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that.  Hell, I know plenty of people who do the very same thing, though they don’t add hilarious screams in their music.

Heavy Metal Monday: Adam Bomb

January 17, 2011

Starting a band isn’t about who you are, it’s about who you know.  If you’re lucky enough to have Guns N’ Roses guitarist Izzy Stradlin as a room mate, and happen to sing/play guitar, the odds of you getting a gig somewhere are rather high.  Today’s selection, Adam Bomb (that’s the name Stradlin told him to use), was one of those lucky dudes.

Heavy Metal Monday: Lionheart

December 13, 2010

It’s amazing the crap you find on YouTube when you’ve been drinking and want some cheezy music to listen to.  Some would go right to Grim Reaper or RAVEN with the hopes of a few chuckles.  But have you ever looked at the list of bands they suggest you check out?  Well I have.  Let me tell you, things aren’t always what they seem.  Some are so rare and stupid that you simply MUST watch.  Today’s band was found in just such a way.

Heavy Metal Monday: Black N’ Blue

November 15, 2010

It’s a well known fact that growing up sucks balls.  Most people just suck it up and deal with it.  But there are a few people out there who have that spark inside them; that driving force that says “we’re going places, brother…..BIG places”.  It’s these people that usually make something out of their lives (yet still find themselves staying in mom and dad’s basement well into their 30’s).

What’s their secret?  Where do they find the motivation to continue following their crazy pipe dreams?  I think the boys from 80’s glam band Black N’ Blue have found the answer. Read the rest of this entry »


Heavy Metal Monday: THOR

November 1, 2010

Long flowing blond hair, muscles on top of muscles, and a drive to be epic every minute of the day.  No, I’m not talking about myself.  The guy in question is none other than former bodybuilding champion Jon Mikl THOR.  Why this guy isn’t as famous as ManOwaR, I couldn’t tell you.  He’s done it all:  bodybuilding, sings in a superbly cheesy metal band, acts, writes, AND directs.  This man doesn’t fuck around.

Heavy Metal Monday: VIXEN

October 18, 2010

Minnesota; a frozen tundra full of Viking descendants, gelatinous fish, mighty ice skating ducks, and colossal malls.  One must be crafted of stern stuff to thrive in such hostile environs, though the sexy ladies of VIXEN made doing so a walk in the park.  They could melt the snow off a wampa’s hairy nut-sack and still have time to belt out some rocking music (probably on tauntaun back).
