Paul Stanley - KISS - Christmas Ornament - promo pic - #2011PS

That’s it above, my KISS Paul Stanley Christmas ornament. Pretty Cool, huh? I received this ornament back in 2011 as a gift from my wife. She purchased this piece of KISStory from the Moravian Book Shop, located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

The Moravian Book Shop was founded in 1745, by the Moravian Church and lays claim to being the oldest bookstore in continuous operation in the world. There’s some history for you! Metal be thy name! Bethlehem, Pennsylvania… Rocks! Whoa.

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.
