Metal Merch – Motörhead Vintage 1980’s Pins

Posted in Heavy Metal with tags , , , , , , on September 26, 2021 by Metal Odyssey

I bought these Motörhead pins sometime back in the early to mid 80’s, at a store called Wasteland in Torrington Connecticut. I was serving time in high school then. Wasteland was filled with all kinds of Rock and Metal merch; plus lots of smoking and toking supplies too. This store was in walking distance to my parents house and near the Y.M.C.A., thus I made countless trips there. I would go to that Y.M.C.A. for pick up basketball games and to lift weights; it kinda kept me out of trouble. I’m laughing as I wrote that.

I didn’t always buy at each visit; just looking around the place and smelling the burning incense was a treat for me. Wasteland was an escape from the crap a teenager had to deal with, back then. It’s amazing what memories these little Motörhead pins rekindle.

I remember buying black light bulbs, black light posters, band t-shirts, pipes, lots of pins, band stickers and patches and rolling papers there. Funny how I never bought a bong or lava lamp there for they had plenty for sale. Those really were easier times. It’s fun to reflect on it all. I just wish I kept some of those band t-shirts for they’re worth lots of money now. Then again, I really wore out those shirts.

I’ve sold and traded away hundreds of Rock and Metal pins over the years; so I’m very happy I have these Motörhead pins today. When I saw Motörhead years ago they opened for Slayer. Overkill was the other opening band. Metal be thy name! Thanks for reading and stay safe out there. – Stone

LONG LIVE THE LEGACY OF MOTÖRHEAD.

ANTIQVA – Release New Video For “Anadem Gyre” 

Posted in Heavy Metal with tags , , , , on September 26, 2021 by Metal Odyssey

“Anadem Gyre” is the brand-new ethereal single from ANTIQVA (pronounced as; antiqua). The chamber black metal project was founded by Xenoyr (NE OBLIVISCARIS) and Lindsay Schoolcraft while on tour in Europe in the Autumn of 2015.

Watch the video here: https://youtu.be/inVvBxv2POk

“We’re pleased to reveal our debut music video, “Anadem Gyre”, a song released only in vinyl format in 2020 as a bonus track to our “Funeral Crown” single. “Anadem Gyre” is a more emphasised dark folk element from within our sound, a portion of this infused into our chamber black metal backbone is what to expect on our debut album. With all our tracks we utilise the Romanian tongue and so we thought it fitting that we pay respect to the country, one so rich in spirit, character, and folklore. We hope you enjoy this visual experience.”

Featuring an experienced ensemble of past, present, and live musicians from well-established bands; NE OBLIVISCARIS, NEGATOR, KARKAOS/BLACKGUARD, BLACK CROWN INITIATE, SUSPERIA/ABYSSIC, and THE OCEAN.
