‘There are winners and losers…and then there is ACCEPT’
Accept have long been considered a metal band that really laid the foundation for many future bands we have today and was one of the cinder blocks of German heavy metal in the 80’s. While people with only a passing knowledge of Accept will most likely remember the song ‘Balls to the Wall’, the band has a vast catalog of material that offers much more to a metal listener. With songs like ‘Princess of the Dawn’, ‘Fast as a Shark’ and ‘Metal Heart’, Accept have always been a band that have maintained a steady stream of anthem pounding metal hits that have united metal fans across generations.

I sit and talk with Gerre of the thrash metal band Tankard who just released their new album ‘R.I.B’ Rest in Beer. We discuss the bands musical career, their more serious songs and have a fun time all around.

Supergroups? In general I say, “No thanks.” Most of them you can write off as one-time aberrations. The music isn’t memorable. They so rarely get the right mix of musicians and styles.

Yes, please. Jesus God almighty, yes. Continue Reading

City: Minneapolis, MN
Venue: Mill City Nights
Hear Alex’s audio interview with Metsatöll HERE
Minneapolis is kind of a boring city if you have no money. After interviewing Metsatöll, I had four hours to kill before Mill City Nights opened its doors for a throng of metalheads. I ended up watching Seinfeld reruns at a crummy pizzeria around the corner until six, at which point I’d had enough and went to stand in line outside the venue. Fortunately, Atso, Metsatöll’s drummer, was having a cigarette. I can’t emphasize enough how awesome each member of Metsatöll is. (Listen to my interview with them here.) We talked about his appreciation for oldschool thrash and death metal. Metalheads were lining up. Finally Atso said, “We go in now.” Continue Reading
See my Week 1 movies HERE!
Ok so week two I think was better overall than week one, though I got a real piece of shit of a movie in here that was NOT horror even though Rotten Tomatoes has it listed as such. Anyway, if I have time I might try to mulligan that one and watch another. With that said let’s get to it! Continue Reading
