Thee After Hourz O’ Power
Spaceman is camping in the grim and frostbitten Upper Peninsula this week, so I (Bacchus) am hosting the show solo and writing After Hourz. Since he’s gone, Terrorsquid made sure to put plenty of power metal and atmospheric black metal in the playlist.
Summer Slaughter is tomorrow at the Majestic. We won’t be there, but the bands we’ll most regret missing are Dying Fetus, Origin, Rings Of Saturn, and The Black Dahlia Murder. I’m especially disappointed that I’ll be missing Dying Fetus since I’ve missed them twice in the past, and their last album is one that I’d look forward to seeing performed live.
Incantation and Marduk are at Harpo’s on Saturday. Again, we’re missing it, but it should be a great show for fans who like black or death metal at even a little bit.
Since Spaceman wasn’t here to stop us, Terrorsquid and I filled some empty space in the playlist with the longest continuous list of power metal songs that Hourz has seen in a very long time. Terrorsquid tends towards over the top and flowery power metal–think Blind Guardian, Rhapsody Of Fire, Dragonforce–whereas I prefer the more clean-cut stuff–think Angra and Pagan’s Mind. Admittedly, after several years of trying and to Terrorsquid’s dismay, I can’t into Blind Guardian. Still, we agree that among our favorites are Stratovarius, Kamelot, and Primal Fear.
After getting carried away with playing power metal late into the night, we went straight to funeral doom to balance it out. Obviously.
Spaceman will be back next week with his more colorful commentary!
