Angry Metal Guy’s Classics: #2

Angry Metal Guy’s Classics: #2

OK, so the first album that I did in my “classic albums” section was Type O Negative, which of course, was one of my favorite bands at the time. But they also turned me onto Roadrunner Records, which for those of you too young to remember, was kind of one of the few places even putting out metal in the US during the 1990s. Sure, in retrospect, a lot of that stuff wasn’t that great. But there were a few bands on that label that put out some good records. Sepultura had Chaos AD which I loved, and one band that stands out for me to this day, and that I really loved as an angsty teenager, was Life of Agony.

Now if only Candlelight would add me to their promo list so that I can get a copy and do an interview with the genius himself!! Mark down October 19th on your calenders, I know I will.

What am I stoked about?

Angry Metal Guys do get all excited like little kids.  This time?  The new Hypocrisy record.  Oh, yeah.  How cool is that?  Dropping in October—watch this space!  I’m hoping to land an interview with Peter Tägtgren!  Here’s the official release from Nuclear Blast. Swedens [sic] masters of death HYPOCRISY have just revealed the final tracklist […]

Megadeth – Head Crusher

I make no bones about it, I am not a big Megadeth fan.  Remember that part of Lord of the Rings where Gandalf calls Théodin “the lesser son of great fathers?”  Yeah, the way I see it: Megadeth is pretty much the same way.  Overrated, not very interesting and pretty much just kind of annoying.  […]
