Happy Independence Day, America! Today is a beautiful 4th of July here in Southwest Ohio and to spotlight our United States National Anthem, I could not think of a better guitar legend than our Midwest’s very own… Ted Nugent! The Motor City Madman and his guitar instrumental of The Star-Spangled Banner is:

Metal Odyssey’s Easter (And) Bunny Album Suggestions! Plus: Non Suggestions Too!

Posted in classic rock, easter, Hard Rock, hard rock albums, Heavy Metal, holidays, Music, rock albums, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on March 31, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Rock On Easter - cover promo pic

Okay. It’s Easter Sunday. Happy Easter to ALL my Metal brethren who do celebrate this grand religious (and rabbit delivering candy) holiday. Above is one of 3 Easter (or bunny related) albums you’ll find here that I and the other 56 staff members of Metal Odyssey 100% suggest for your Rockin’ Easter listening pleasure. Heck, just look at (some of) the Rockin’ legends that are on that album! ‘Nuff said.

Below are Easter (or bunny related) albums that we either suggest, slightly suggest or don’t suggest at all for your Easter audio experience. Agree or disagree, this is just a semi-useless list of Easter and bunny (related) albums that have been compiled just for you. Enjoy and… Metal be thy name.

Bunny Lake - promo cover pic

Bunny Lake. Who is Bunny Lake? Can’t recommend what we don’t know. Whoa.

Bunny Hop - Dance Party - cover promo

Bunny Hop Dance Party. Cool. I guess it can be recommended for kids. Maybe.

Patti Smith Group - Easter - cover promo pic!

Patti Smith Group – Easter. Patti Smith is cool. Patti Smith is hands down a Rock legend. Her group is cool too. Only thing is, no one here at the Metal Odyssey headquarters has ever listened to it. Just don’t tell Patti Smith or her group that.

Jive Bunny - cover promo pic

Jive Bunny. The Album. Whatever. I’m sure, based on the way things are done, Jive Bunny will get elected into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame before KISS. Disgusting.

Parry Gripp - Easter Bunny In Space - promo cover

I don’t know who Parry Gripp is and obviously this person has an album or song out called: Easter Bunny In Space. Um, yup.

The Bunny The Bear - cover promo pic

The Bunny The Bear – If You Don’t Have Anything Nice To Say is another album that FINALLY can be suggested for your Easter listening experience! Fabulous album artwork! If you’re into Experimental/Electro/Hardcore/Rock then this is a band and album for you. Whoa.

Lovers and Crypts - Bunny Rabbit - promo cover

With a little research, it appears that Lovers And Crypts is electro-dance stuff. Obviously, out of the Metal Odyssey realm. Having a title of Bunny Rabbit must mean it’s an Easter song though. Right?

Helloween - Rabbit Don't Come Easy - promo cover pic

HELLOWEEN – Rabbit Don’t Come Easy = RECOMMEND! RECOMMEND! RECOMMEND! It’s HELLOWEEN and it’s METAL! Metal be thy name!

Teddy Rock - cover promo pic

Teddy Rock. Teddy Rock! Who is Teddy Rock? The name does Rock. Don’t get me wrong, this nifty list just has to end with The Easter Bunny Song. Maybe not. I’m sure toddlers and ABBA fans should dig it. Whoa.

Happy METAL New Year 2013!

THANK YOU to all the visitors that have stopped by during 2013; both loyal and new visitors ALL! You are all the reason why it’s worth spreading the news, album reviews, interviews and miscellaneous Metal blab that Metal Odyssey has become known for.

THANK YOU to ALL the PR Agencies for supporting Metal Odyssey each and every day. Whoa. THANK YOU to ALL the record companies both large and small that have given Metal Odyssey the Metal ear candy needed to stay updated.

THANK YOU to ALL the bands and musicians that have appeared on Metal Odyssey during 2012 and in years past; you’re ALL the reason why Metal Odyssey exists!

A special THANK YOU to Best METAL Buddy Scott Coverdale, Rock Legends Kev Moore and Louis St. August and… Brian Basher’s Hard Rock Nights. To Lee and Danielle, I’m gonna F’N MISS YOU!

Another special THANK YOU to all the Metal Odyssey followers on twitter, who take the time to read what I have to say; from random Metal blabbing to nonsensical funny stuff.

Every visitor, PR Agency, record company, band and musician that make Metal Odyssey what it is are too many to mention… you ALL know who you are! Metal Buddies ALL! May each and every one of you have a healthy, prosperous and METAL New Year! Long live you ALL!

Happy Metal Halloween From Metal Odyssey! 2012 Edition: Here Are Some Of My Favorite Spooky Albums & Movies…

Posted in halloween, Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, holidays, horror metal, horror movies, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news, science fiction movies with tags , , , , , , on October 31, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

HAPPY METAL HALLOWEEN! Today is October 31st and Halloween 2012 is finally here! As you’ll see below, I’ve selected some of my all-time favorite spooky albums and movies, especially for all you Metal ghouls, monsters, witches, zombies and goblins out there. Enjoy!

The scary album cover at the top of this post is Orange Goblin’s fourth studio album Coup De Grace. Released back in 2002 via Rise Above Records, I highly recommend Coup De Grace from the solid-as-steel discography of Orange Goblin. This isn’t a Horror Metal album, yet it is lyrically filled with plenty of strange stories. Monkey Panic is a true Horror themed song, however. Coup De Grace contains a sensationally cool mix of Stoner Metal, Doom and a cover of the Misfits classic We Bite, (a song which adds a potent moment of Horror Punk to this album).

As with many of you out there, my favorite King Diamond album is Abigail. One of the greatest Metal concept albums ever written, structured and performed, in my Metal opinion! Released back in 1987 via Roadrunner Records, Abigail also features current and longtime Motörhead drummer Mikkey DeeAbigail is the crème de la crème of the King Diamond discography, without any Metal doubt in my mind.

What would a Metal Halloween be without the super-duper legendary IRON MAIDEN? For that matter, what would Halloween be like without IRON MAIDEN’s iconic mascot Eddie? I cringe at the thoughts! IRON MAIDEN without question, has the greatest assemblage of album covers in Heavy Metal history. Thanks to artists Derek Riggs and Melvyn Grant, Eddie’s mascot celebrity within the world of Metal is second to none.

Back on March 25th, 2010, I posted a feature titled: My Favorite Heavy Metal Album Cover Is… and you can read all about it by clicking the link below! Hint: It’s IRON MAIDEN.

MY FAVORITE HEAVY METAL ALBUM COVER IS…

______________________________________________________________

Here Are 2 Of My Favorite All-Time Scary Movies:

Directed by the ultra-legendary John Carpenter, They Live was released back in 1988 and is distributed by Universal Studios. This is a Science Fiction-Horro Film that essentially shows what our world would be like if taken over by elitist aliens. Uh, huh. Filthy rich space aliens want to take over the world!

My favorite professional wrestler of all-time is the star of They Live: “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. I feel his performance in They Live was stellar, just like his wrestling career. Rowdy Roddy Piper gives plenty of hurtin’ on these white-collar space aliens, before he, um… I won’t give the ending of this fabulous movie away.

Shout! Factory will be releasing, on November 6th, 2012, a “collector’s edition” of They Live, on both DVD and Blu-ray. Check out Shout! Factory here: http://www.shoutfactory.com

Another Science Fiction thriller directed by John Carpenter! This creepy Sci-Fi film takes place in 1997 and New York City is a maximum security prison! Once you’re put inside this NYC prison, you never come out… unless you’re Snake Plissken.

Legendary actor Kurt Russell is phenomenal in his role as Snake Plissken; his mission is to rescue The President of the United States (Donald Pleasence) from this horrible prison. It’s detailed as to how this all happened! Just get this movie at all Metal costs, if you already haven’t.

Escape From New York was released back in 1981 and  distributed by AVCO Embassy Pictures.

Escape From New York also stars such other notable actors: Lee Van Cleef, Ernest Borgnine, Adrienne Barbeau and Isaac Hayes as The Duke of New York.

I once met the producer for Escape From New York! Debra Hill was introduced to me at a wedding I attended (somewhere) in Long Island, (sometime) back in the ’90’s. A very quick “hello” and (I think) handshake and that’s about it. That’s my “brush with fame” when it comes to this unreal terrific movie!

METAL BE THY NAME.
