  1. Singaporean Metal Scene, ca. 2012

    As some folks know or noticed, I was on a business trip to Singapore for two weeks recently. Hey, sometimes all of those shitty trips pay off with an awesome trip such as this!

    Had enough down time to see a lot of the main city of Singapore, and even got a small taste of it's metal scene!

    Now, before going, I knew of exactly two metal groups from Singapore: the fucking awesome Death/Black/Ethnic stylings of Rudra, and the somewhat messy Blackened/Thrash/Sabbat(JP)-wannabe ...

  3. How social media made and killed fan websites

    I kinda feel like Andy Rooney while writing this. I was searching for information on a band and all I could find was their poorly maintained MySpace page, and their page on http://www.metal-archives.com. This was ok, but I really wanted to know more about this band. I mean, pictures, past shows, fliers, history, guitar tablature, full discography (bootlegs even?), interviews and video. This got me frustrated, as I could not find out much except for a short bio on Metal-Archives and discography. ...
  4. SD Brewery Tour 1/28/2012

    A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to go on a beer tour courtesy of the IT company my work hires for major jobs (G-Squared Computing). These guys are big beer fans and brought their clients on a bus to three local breweries and stocked the coach up with 3 coolers of ultra rare beers. On the bus we had tastings of very rare beers from Lost Abbey, The Bruery, Firestone and all kinds of Belgian and So. Cal breweries. We stopped at Hess, Green Flash and Ballast Point. Of the three breweries, ...

  6. ICED EARTH - Dystopia

    Iced Earth are back! This album is been out a few weeks and I can't seem to stop listening to it. This is their best album since Something Wicked. New vocalist Stu Block (Into Eternity) fits this band way better than I expected. His vocal style is a lot like Matt Barlow, but he can hit a lot of the Ripper Owens highs, that Matt could not. I am very much looking forward to their show here in San Diego with Symphony X at House of Blues early 2012.
