The King of Dance Metal!

I can’t say I know of many Dance/Metal bands out there.  Yes I have heard of the techno/industrial metal stuff like but never on that proudly proclaims their love of Dance music and their love of metal music like the band Xe-None from Russia.  I was asked by Nem Promotions here in Finland to come out to Hendry’s Pub in Kuopio to cover Xe-none and Fear of Domination for their short Finnish mini-tour.  Always willing to check out some new music and help bands what I can, I happily agreed, not knowing what I may be getting myself into.  So what did I find?  Did I feel some ‘good vibrations’ and did my hidden love of Ace of Base get re-kindled?  Well get out you 90’s Hit Dance Music collection and prepare to ‘Come and Get Your Love’!
