we really miss you

Today 4/14/2020 is a huge day in metal for anniversaries. Iron Maiden’s classic debut turns 40 (“Running Free”!) as does the legendary British Steel from Judas Priest (“Metal Gods”, “Breaking The Law” etc.)! Those albums deserve essays all their own but of course I had to shout them out today. I have to take a friend to the dentist shortly amidst the pandemic for emergency surgery, but I have time to at least make this post acknowledging the big milestones today. That said, it is also the anniversary of a more recent and much more tragic event in metal.

Peter Steele fans pretty much mourn the passing of the gloomy, satirical goth metal giant everyday, but today is ten years since he passed away. God, I can’t believe it has been a decade. I have spent so much time with the band’s music over the last 20+ years that it is weird to have someone be absent but still with you in spirit and song.

Billboard has a Johnny Kelly article HERE about the sad anniversary and remembering his friend. Take Steele’s life as an example of the impact you can make charting your own course. Type O Negative’s World Coming Down , arguably their most depressing and melodic album, just got a vinyl re-issue and t-shirt reprint via Roadrunner recently. Order it HERE and crank it on streaming services today, or whichever is your favorite record from the Green Man.

Protest, Preach, Kill, Escape or “Just Rock”?

Let’s talk about reasons for rocking. Some bands wanna party and meet people to screw. Some want flying unicorns to befriend them on a castle facing a cliff made of diamonds. Some bands want to “just rock” and make people happy. Some want to further social change. Some bands want to sing “Worm Infested” and make you envision horribly rotten corpses of victims. IS one path better than the other or more “legit”/true?

Can music still change the world?

Three songs mentioning “Christmas” and “Hell”

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Monday, December 24, 2012 at 2:23 PM (PST)

Happy Ho Ho Ho. While it is undisputed that Christian Metalcore band August Burns Red’s Sleddin’ Hill pretty much kicks ass, we also should approach this “Christmas” thing from a “Metal” perspective and thus…three songs mentioning “Christmas” and “Hell”. Stop the Tivo of Clark Griswold hanging up Christmas Lights and click HERE (especially if you like Type O, Mours and Sixx:A.M.).

Top 10 Heavy Metal Love Songs

Posted by JDKleinhans on Tuesday, February 14, 2012 at 2:14 AM (PST)

Is there a worse holiday than Valentine’s Day? I’m pretty sure there’s not, but then again, I’m a black shirt, combat boot kind of guy. Expression of romantic sentiment doesn’t come easy for most of us metalheads but fret not ye’ emotionally challenged, that’s why God created the mixtape (or now, the cursed playlist, but we’ll save that soapbox for another time). Why spend hours groping for just the right words when somebody more talented can do it for you in the form of song?! Some even do it in the form of metal songs!

So our gift to you my fellow heathens and cretins, is this: to celebrate this most asinine of all holidays, here is a list of the ten best heavy metalΒ love songs ever recorded (in no particular order).
