i took a trip! read about it here.

evidence of my lame yuppie side on my (gasp!) house blog here.

Well, I’m not sure if this animated gif of the Charlie Hunnam lookalike from objectively terrible -core band Lie Or Liar will ever come in handy, but all I know is that it is equal parts side splittingly hilarious and… easy on the eyes. 
You do you, Scott Prisk. Also, maybe grow a beard. Trust me, I’m a doctor.
And should you, kind reader, want to see the full, surreal video from which this was extracted…

Dave Brockie, through Oderus Urungus, always brought a smile to my face. This is very sad news. I’m going to go and watch Gwar cover Kansas and hope it makes me feel better. Under all the prosthetics, goo and silliness, this dude had a big, gravelly voice and the personality to match. He will be missed.

ETA: This Blabbermouth article has many lovely tributes, including a particularly nice one from Randy of Lamb of God. 

GWAR are back with another AV Club cover, and this one is a 2-for-1 special. Watch it and see! Hat tip to Robot for the link!

Oh, and, sign this pointless petition while you’re at it.

A few weeks back, I mentioned that DJs from CJLO would be guest judging the Wacken Metal Band Battle. Round 4 is tonight, and it’s my turn to judge! The bands competing tonight are Valfreya, Sanguine Glacialis, Karkaos and Hollow. You can check ‘em out here, or tonight, live at Katacombes! Tickets are 10/12$, and because it’s Katacombes, you know the booze will be flowin’ cheap & easy, so come down and party!

Here’s Vidar from Kvelertak reminding you, in Norwegian, to tune in to the BVST Meets Kvelertak special on CJLO 1690AM tonight! Don’t miss my full interview with him, as well as a bunch of amazing Scandinavian music, and of course, a whole bunch of Kvelertak. Tune in, 7pm ET tonight, only on CJLO 1690AM in Montréal, www.cjlo.com around the world, and keep your eyes peeled for the full transcript of the interview in the CJLO magazine in the next couple of days!

It’s no secret that BVST has been preaching the gospel of Norwegian heavy metal geniuses Kvelertak since the release of their debut album. Now, in the wake of their first-ever Canadian tour dates, Angelica from BVST was lucky enough to sit down with Kvelertak guitarist Vidar Landa for a wide ranging chat about Norway, Guns N’ Roses, trolls, and the band’s future plans, set against the roar of other bands soundchecking. Be sure to tune in this Wednesday at 7pm ET only on CJLO 1690AM in Montréal / www.cjlo.com, especially if you like the gritty audio verité styling of poorly recorded in-person interviews! We’ll be playing a lot of Kvelertak and other Scandinavian bands you should know about, as well as nerding out about one of metal’s most up-and-coming bands.
