On July 31, 2014, female-fronted, Heavy Metal band, Corprit Convict, is taking the message of their debut album, Come Clean, directly to the steps of the U.S. Capitol Building. The message?  Remove money from politics. The band will be performing songs from the album, such as “3 Ring”, “Applicator” and “Left for Dead”, serving, themselves, as protest anthems and calling for change in our country.

“Campaign financing has become the single, biggest problem plaguing our country’s political landscape today. But it’s also the least discussed problem, because the only people who can effect real change on theses policies, or lack thereof, are the same group cashing the checks. Money talks in Washington and, right now, it’s screaming,” says singer, KT. “Americans cannot continue to stand idly by as the richest members of our country continue to buy our elections and control our public officials.”

In the Spring of this year, the US Supreme Court passed a ruling that will allow individuals and corporations to give up to $6 million to candidates and parties in a 2 year election cycle; nearly 50 times the limit before the ruling.

Supporters for the band can join them on the steps of the Congress on July 31 (last day of summer session).

Stone Is Fed Up… And Here Are The Reasons Why…

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, news, politics, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , on October 28, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

MetalOdyssey

You know, I haven’t bitched here on Metal Odyssey in a very long time. Very long time. Well, brace yourselves, cause I’m ready to bitch! I’m fed up. Wanna know why? Below are the reasons why I’m fed up. Take a gander at my bitching and if you don’t want to bother, well then, I really don’t give 2 shits. Seriously, I don’t. Metal be thy name.

1. ALL United States politicians from the municipal level on up can kiss my ass. Why? Cause Republicans are NOW Democrats and Democrats are NOW Republicans. Unless you’re a Tea Party constituent, y’all can kiss my ass again.

2. Dee Snider –  Please, Dee Snider, shut the hell up already. You are NO LONGER funny, relevant, inspirational or badass. You are merely a whisper of “what once was” prior to your very annoying 1983 album: Stay Hungry. Go Away now, Dee. You’re yesterdays news. Hey Dee… two words for you… Broad Way. Here’s two more words for you Dee: You Liberal.

__________________________________________

3. Satellite Radio. Hey Satellite Radio… kiss my ass too! Y’all aren’t worth the drop of sweat off of a donkey’s asshole. I can lug around my CD catalog into my car and not have to give a shit about you corporate dumb dumbs; and save a TON of money in the process.

4. Apple. It seems like Apple is coming out with a NEW iPhone every two weeks now. Hey Apple… kiss my ass too! Hey Apple… how much of your BILLION dollars in profits have you given back to charity? Dumb asses, Apple.

5. Male erectile Enhancement Commercials. Give me a break. If I had a hard-on that lasted for more than 4 to 6 hours… I’m not calling any fucking doctor. If there are dudes out there that need this product, just pick up a copy of SWANK and you’ll save yourself a fortune. Plus, I’d wish these male erectile enhancement companies would STOP hiring all those geek corporate assholes to be acting like morons in your commercials. Dorks. Idiots.

__________________________________________

6. Metallica. Please, Metallica, go away! Lars Ulrich looks like he’s 85 years old and y’all can’t put out a studio album without it sounding like a Rick Rubin billion dollar produced piece of shit called Death Magnetic.

7. Robert Trujillo – Somebody should remind Robert Trujillo, that his Metallica legacy is he’s ONLY played on that one full-length studio piece of garbage… Death Magnetic as a replacement musician for Metallica. I’m NOT even gonna count that EP offering of Beyond Magnetic. Why bother? It was a good effort by Metallica, yet, still, go away Metallica. Um, Mr. Trujillo… you are light years away from being the bass legend that Cliff Burton was (and still is). Go back to Sharon Osbourne and ask her if you could re-record more bass tracks for her on the Ozzy Osbourne catalog, Robert Trujillo. Reminder: You are NOT a Metallica legend, Robert Trujillo. Jason Newsted can school YOU on bass playing any day of the fucking year. YOU KNOW IT TOO.

Stone Says HEY! On This METAL Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

Megadeth - Countdown To Extinction - LIVE - promo cover pic

HEY! In the past, whenever I posted random blab, I’ve used the heading: Some Metal And Rock ‘N Roll Thoughts; today I’ve decided not to. No big deal. Change is good, no matter how big or minuscule. It’s Wednesday, September 25th and I absolutely have no clue as to where the first 8 months of 2013 went. Do you?

HEY! I still haven’t really organized my CD collection since moving to Ohio, unless you consider neat and non-alphabetized stacks of CD’s located everywhere in my house an organizational accomplishment! I buy CD’s still cause I’m old school. I buy used and new vinyl albums cause I’m undoubtedly very old school. The new CD I bought yesterday (on CD release Tuesday) is at the top of this post. That’s right. MEGADETH. Countdown To Extinction. LIVE. This CD kicks unadulterated live Metal ass. ‘Nuff said.

HEY! Yesterday, I was searching for the new ONSLAUGHT CD, VI. I couldn’t find it. I will special order this CD from a local (indie) record store in Dayton, Ohio, which is named: OMEGA MUSIC. This is a bona fide used vinyl and CD store that I will proudly shop at! Let’s face it, the indie record shops are our future; large retail chains are consistently downsizing their CD selections. Dummies. Funny thing is, it’s the indie stores that went out of business so many years ago, due to the large CD retailers; and now the market needs MORE indie record shops!

Kreator - Dying Alive - promo cover pic - #66 - 2013

I absolutely cannot get enough of this double live CD from German Thrash Metal Legends: KREATOR. Just a remarkable live release!

HEY! The first time I ever saw MEGADETH was on the DIO Live Evil tour. That’s right! SAVATAGE was the opening band too! Heavy Metal icons, all. Good Metal times. It’s bands like MEGADETH that I cherish, due to the consistency of album releases, touring and (of course) quality of Metal. Thou Shall Never Take Thy Metal Legends For Granted!

HEY! On a (personal) closing note, I’m very, very proud of (Texas) Senator Ted Cruz. His taking action to filibuster on the Senate floor yesterday, into the night and straight through as I write this, to me is admirable. This is The United States Of America and lately it feels like many laws and regulations have been driven down the throats of “We The People” without much debate… if any debate at all. Scary. The issue at hand, regarding Senator Cruz’s filibuster is about Obamacare. This national healthcare law begins to go into effect on October 1st, 2013. It’s a long story. My best advice (for those who are not in the know) is to go back in time and research BOTH the Democrat and Republican arguments, concerning Obamacare.

That’s all I really have to blab about for now. I hope y’all have a GRAND Metal Wednesday and rest of the week! If you like to read MORE of my blabbing about Metal, Metal Buddies, sports, food, politics, critters, monsters, weather, animal rights and (often times) nonsensical stuff, please follow me on twitter! Here’s my twitter link for y’all:

An Open Letter To Dee Snider – August 23rd, 2012

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal music, Music, politics, rock and roll, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on August 23, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Hello Dee, it’s Stone. I’ve read today that you requested Vice Presidential nominee, Paul Ryan, to stop using the (your) Twisted Sister song “We’re Not Gonna Take It”. I also understand you (obviously) don’t support Paul Ryan or the Republican party.

However, please understand Dee, that our beloved Heavy Metal community is unlike the mainstream Rock and Pop communities. I speak for all Metalheads when I say we are: unified. We have and always will be unified regardless of race, sex, (I would hope religion) or political party affiliation. Anyone who disagrees is not a true “Defender Of The Faith”.

Certainly, there’s nothing wrong with an honest and open discussion of politics, after all, you fought for our civil rights when it comes to freedom of speech, when you stood up to the PMRC. Political commentary, sex and drugs in lyrics are here to stay due to your heroics on Capitol Hill. However, no political group or Hollywood clique has ever supported you as loyally as your fans have; please don’t turn your back on a large group of us now.

Political nonsense shall never steer me away from a band or musician. It’s always been about the music for me. I’ve never let politics cloud my judgement with an album review or interview. Please remember there are conservative fans that have looked upon Twisted Sister’s songs for inspiration, going on four decades strong. I can guarantee that there are many conservative politicians who grew up as Twisted Sister fans. “I Am, (I’m Me)”.

Dee, you have been a leader and legendary contributor to the history of Heavy Metal. Please don’t forget your fans that may support Paul Ryan and the Republican Party; for these same fans have loyally supported you since day one.

Please Dee, don’t get caught up with “those other guys” that have made political statements as a part of their overall claim to fame. Here at Metal Odyssey, bands are supported regardless of what political party they are loyal to. “You Can’t Stop Rock ‘N’ Roll”. Please Dee, don’t get onboard with the political Hollywood celebrity mainstream. You’re too good for that. Metal be thy name.

LONG LIVE DEE SNIDER.

Happy Metal New Year From Metal Odyssey! 2012 Shall ROCK! \m/

Posted in classic rock, classic rock bands, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, holidays, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, politics, pop culture, rock music, rock music news, sports with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 1, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Metal Odyssey would like to THANK ALL OF YOU who come to visit all year, sharing the same passion for Rock, Hard Rock and… METAL! Throughout the past year, Metal Odyssey receives support in ways too numerous to mention. However, there are those “thank yous” that I need to mention, If I leave anyone out, believe me, you are included.

THANK YOU to all the super cool PR people and record companies that have made it possible for Metal Odyssey to deliver the METAL news and album reviews! Each and every one of you ROCK beyond belief! Without them, I am in the dark.

THANK YOU to all the bands and musicians that have been mentioned, featured and/or interviewed here on Metal Odyssey this past year. Without them, life would suck big time. Really.

THANK YOU to all my Metal Buddies around the world! You know who you are and I don’t take any of you for granted.

THANK YOU to Best Metal Buddy/Metal Researcher Scott Coverdale & staff photographer Tom Coderre.

THANK YOU to Rob Rockitt and HARD ROCK HIDEOUT

THANK YOU to KINGER at Demolish Fanzine – 1980’s Heavy Metal Revival

THANK YOU to Metal Mark at Heavy Metal Time Machine

A very, very, very special THANK YOU to Metal Chick.

Now, here are some Metal thoughts, um, ramblings from Stone:

The world will NOT end in 2012. Sorry. If I’m wrong and the dreaded doomsday does come to pass this year, I will hopefully be with my family while any ORANGE GOBLIN album is blasting LOUD around me.

2012 IS GONNA ROCK! WHY?

Cause… Ozzy, Tony, Geezer and Bill are… BACK!

Cause… KISS is releasing a new studio album titled: MONSTER.

Cause… KING DIAMOND is better and… back in action! Just ask Metallica.

Cause… VAN HALEN IS BACK!

BOLD SPORTS PREDICTION:

The New York Yankees will win the 2012 World Series.

STONE’S 2012 NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS:

There are so many that are too boring to list. Okay, here’s two:

I shall eat less potato chips and listen to MORE METAL \m/

STONE’S WISHES FOR 2012:

I wish for an end to world hunger and human suffering of any kind. May there be world peace? On a smaller scale, I wish that Motörhead would receive a deserved “Lifetime Achievement Award” from The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences.

I wish CHEAP TRICK would follow Metal Odyssey on twitter. If this happens, I will write, without hesitation, a positive article on ABBA and feature it right here on Metal Odyssey for the world to read and see. I’m honestly not kidding. CHEAP TRICK F’n RULES.

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SEE MORE OF ON METAL ODYSSEY?

Would you like more album reviews? Short or long album reviews? More/less Metal news? Classic Rock news? Are you demanding more band interviews? Are “lists” good or bad? More or less of Stone’s ramblings? Let your thoughts and feelings be heard by leaving a comment! Man, it would be greatly appreciated!

METAL BE THY NAME.

Thank you to my Metal Buddy down South, for that thoughtful package of CD’s and videos after the hurricane struck. You know who you are.

Stone.

BLIZZARD OF 2010 – PART TWO!

Posted in current news, greenhouse climate, greenhouse effect, heavy metal music, humor, metal odyssey, people, politicians, politics, weather, weather news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 25, 2010 by Metal Odyssey

What gives with all the snow falling down in the Mid-Atlantic States this year? The New England States too. Hey, Al Gore… where are your speeches on global warming lately? Uh… Al, Pennsylvania is awaiting it’s SECOND BLIZZARD of February 2010! That is TWO BLIZZARD’S in one month… see what happens once the temperature begins to rise! Greenhouse effect? Um, try freezer effect. Or, try something better than that… it’s the good ol’ North Atlantic Oscillation, (NAO), and/or the same damned historical pattern of weather that has been happening in the Mid-Atlantic and New England States for centuries. Oh, Al, we poor people, you know, (the people who can’t afford those green cars that only politicians, spoiled major league athletes and celebrities can afford), well, we know a blizzard when one hits us. Gee whiz, I really could use a lecture on greenhouse gases and how hot the climate is right about now. I could use a hearty laugh.

Hey Al, what do BLIZZARDS and HEAVY METAL have in common? Neither one YOU can prevent or ban! Try censoring a BLIZZARD… nice try. Put a parental advisory sticker on a BLIZZARD? Nope. I’ll handle this second BLIZZARD by turning up my heat and running up my electric bill… then kick back and listen to Metal Music… LOUD. I’ll then shovel my family and I out once this BLIZZARD passes by… should I wear a thong when I do shovel the snow? It is supposed to be so hot outside with all of this climate change happening, isn’t it?

This great album cover from Savatage sums it up best, when describing the Winter weather that has taken it’s toll on the Mid-Atlantic States in 2010.
