Bonus Post: Malmsteen

I’d prefer not to admit how I stumbled across this. Yngwie, how could you? The orginal version is already over-the-top, man.


Some like K.K. Downing more than Glenn Tipton

I have a weakness for Judas Priest. I always have. Any band name that illicits a sigh and head shake from your mom is a good one.

I intend zero irony in posting this video. It completely got me off. To start a big arena rock concert with a long drum intro followed by twin axemen appearing in clouds of smoke is exactly as it should be done. I admire anything that’s done right.

Please forgive the overly clever Sun Kil Moon reference in the title (if you know it.)

Heavy Coma

I’ve always liked Dead Meadow. When you look at those guys in person, you can tell that music is all the fuck they care about. I love the way they take a simple slow riff and punish it into submission.

I finally got Feathers . It came out in 2005, I believe. It expands on their riff-driven sound without moving too far away. I love this song, but it’s not even close to being the best on the album. The video, an homage to the film Picnic at Hanging Rock, is a perfect match for the song.
