I wanted to take a second and wish everyone a very Happy and Merry Christmas! And Happy Holidays to those that don’t celebrate Christmas. Thanks for all your support over this past year and I appreciate all the comments as I enjoy what everyone thinks of the albums and songs we talk about here on 2 Loud 2 Old Music. I don’t have any long speech, but instead I will leave you with some Memes to hopefully bring a smile to your face. Thanks again!!Continue reading “Have Yourself a Metal Memes Christmas!!”
I am in the mood for something heavy…so why not SLAYER!!! Yes, I went into the bowels of the internet looking for Slayer memes and these are only a handful of ones out there. I am not the biggest slayer fan so I stuck with the ones I actually understood…somewhat. I hope you enjoy and go out there and slay the day…okay that sucked…sorry!!
Dee Snider’s follow-up to his last solo album, ‘We Are the Ones’, was completely unexpected as Dee was done with making albums. That was until he was challenged to do a contemporary Metal record by Jamey Jasta, leader singer of the metal band Hatebreed.
And there were some serious metal musicians on board with this album, just look at the contributors…
- Jamey Jasta – Hatebreed
- Howard Jones – Killswitch Engage
- Mark Morton – Lamb of God
- Alissa White-Gluz – Arch Enemy
- Joel Grind – Toxic Holocaust
- Nick Bellmore – Toxic Holocaust
- Charlie Bellmore – Kingdom of Sorrow
I like some metal music, but I am not really familiar with any of these bands, so I was a little apprehensive at first. These are all modern metal artists and I am stuck in the past. Plus, Dee only contributed vocals. He did not write any of the songs. That alone made me nervous, but it is Dee Snider so I gave it a shot.
The first single off the album was “Become the Storm”. It is a heavy song, but it was a little lame in my opinion. It was too contrived and sounded like they were trying too hard to sound and be metal. Thankfully, this might be the worst song on the album. The rest of the album is pretty fucking great.
No artists this week. We are tackling a whole genre of music called Heavy Metal. Maybe you have heard of it…I hope so. If not, these won’t be funny at all to you. Everyone likes it hard some times and with music, I do too. So let’s have some fun with Heavy Metal. I hope you enjoy!!
Hey Gene…trademark this!!
