It's only 1:25 PM ET for me. I'm getting this done early so I can go to work and not have to worry about something like this later tonight. This one is more metal themed, probably due to the fact that I've been staring at Ticketmaster.com recently and the page for Ozzfest which is in Dallas, Texas on August 9th. I've never been to a concert, outside of John Tesh when I was like seven or eight-years old, so I really wanna go. Trying to decide whether I should fly solo or call my uncle Scott, (Iron Maiden fan, metal, etc) or my friend I just graduated high school with Chase (Maiden, Metallica, Slayer, etc fan).
Anyway, on with the volume.
Meh, Megadeth on Letterman? I didnt think a thrash metal band would ever get face time like that. And on top of that, there's another performance by White Zombie. And I think we know it too, as I've heard it a million times on the radio.
2. Detroit Rock City - KISS
Whether you believe they're metal or not, or their name is just KISS or really Knights in Service of Satan, this song seems to be one that kicks butt to most people. Or I dont know, I'm just making stuff up here; see, I hate KISS. But hey, it's here, so there.
3. Smoke and Mirrors - Symphony X
Never heard of these guys? Me either, but apparently they're damn good. This one is a marathon of a power metal track.
4. Criminal - Steeler
Yay for bands I've never heard of! Shows my knowledge of old school metal still needs work, eh? Anywho, pretty cool track, and the album art seen in the video isnt bad either.
5. Welcome Home - King Diamond
Thanks to seeing "Clerks II" the other night, which is quite possibly one of the funniest movies I've ever seen (doesnt top the first one, though) you've got this gem from King Diamond. If you thought Rob Halford's vocals (Judas Priest) were high pitched and nearly ear piercing, you havent heard nothing yet.
