Carnifex - Die Without Hope - promo cover pic - 2014

That CARNIFEX album cover is atop this post for a reason. I bought this new CARNIFEX CD, Die Without Hope, on Tuesday, March 4th. It’s the only CD I’ve bought in the past two weeks. Yes, this new CARNIFEX offering scorches, blazes, burns and tears apart my Metal soul, blah, blah, blah. I highly recommend it too.


As it stands now, I do solemnly believe we live in a world that is runneth over with countless governments and Hollywood fat cats that can give two shits about the people that continue to make them filthy rich. Let the U2 bands of the world sink in the same pitiful ship of arrogant fools that bow at the altar of the billionaires club. Those bands are far too gone; they can only relate to red carpets, narcissistic thought patterns and the plastic societies that they’ve succumbed to.

With so much bullshit going on around us, all over the planet, I hereby plead for all of us Metalheads, Hell Rats, Punks, Children Of The Damned, Bottom Feeders, Classic Rockers, Underground Dwellers and Fiends to UNITE like never before!

Music is our universal language and our passion; therefore, let’s continue to get along like we have been doing and show the artificial idiots of the world how real civility is conducted! Music inspiresMusic heals. Music unites. Music is a mystical force that can never be contained. Hallelujah and ring the Metal bell for peace.


With all of that said, I’d like to share with you all this very cool QUIET RIOT concert flyer for their June 13th, 2014 show:

Quiet Riot - St. Louis Mo - June 13 - 2014 - promo flyer

I love QUIET RIOT and appreciate this concert flyer. For those who might be offended, I make no apologies for being a red-blooded dude who digs art. Just take a long look at the endless line of violent and smutty movies coming out of Hollywood for the last several decades and this concert flyer pales (light years) in comparison. QUIET RIOT RULES.


This USA Winter of 2014 has broken countless weather records for freezing temperatures and snow totals; with many, many death related stories due to this Winter’s wrath. To tally all these bizarre Winter records here would probably take me 24 hours of non-stop keystroking. Electric, gas and fuel bills do not lie about non-stop freezing weather. From this Winter forward, the words greenhouse affects and climate change are filthy rotten words to me… and to think I practically jumped on board that dumb-ass bus of unfounded science!

Certainly, there will forever be meteorologists, scientists and misinformed individuals that live in the mild southern regions and Tropics that cling onto the idealistic view that Mother Earth is losing her polar caps. Everyone, build a bunker! Relocate to a base on the Moon! Maybe, perhaps, they should ALL read that classic children’s book about jumping to conclusions:

Or these same champions of ozone depletion can watch the animated film:

Thank you for visiting, reading or hardly reading this post. Regardless, your visit will make the site stats increase on Metal Odyssey; resulting in my (hopefully) not being fired by my boss. Metal be thy name.

    Too true, I’m with you all the way Stone. However, after reading that book by Laina Dawes, we metalheads still have some way to go ourselves. Let’s show the world how it’s done.

    • I can only speak for my life’s experience being surrounded by the culture of Metal, plus I couple in the number of actual jerks I’ve ever met in the Metal communities I’ve been exposed to as “a fan”; the actual “jerks” have been few and far between, for me.

      I have not read that book, yet everyone will have different experiences and opinions on the personalities and societal dynamics of Metal. I still believe though, that no other music genre on Earth has the camaraderie that the Metal community has. As RJD wrote and sung: “We’re the last in line”! The greatest people I know today are associated with Metal at some level.

      It’s true the musicians, record executives and any other person(s) closely associated with Metal as a “career to live on”, will have their gripes and lousy tales. Every biography and/or autobiography I’ve read over the years about Metal (or any Rock) musicians states their soap opera tales, that’s for certain!

      My apologies for being long-winded… I appreciate the feedback, Metal Buddy! You… ROCK \m/\m/

      • Hey, be as long winded as you like, you make many good points. We all have our experiences both good and bad from metal but what ever the problem metal can unite the world if we give it a chance.

        • THANKS 80’s Metal Man! I guess I’ve been screwed over by so many NON-Metal people throughout my life that I tend to get passionate about our Metal community and fellow Metal brethren. We Metalheads have ALWAYS persevered!! Metal be thy name!!

          You absolutely… ROCK \m/\m/
