KING DIAMOND – Black Horseman Danish Style Black Lager Available October 31st!

From the King Diamond facebook:

King Diamond is embarking on 23 black masses across North America starting Nov. 2. To make the tour even more memorable, King Diamond has collaborated with Surly Brewing Co., the Minneapolis-based craft brewery, for a limited release beer: Black Horsemen Danish-style black lager. The beer will be available at select venues within the Surly footprint and VIP ticketholders will have the opportunity to raise a toast of Black Horseman with King Diamond at each tour stop.

The Black Horsemen can design reflects the unforgettable album, Abigail, leading beer drinkers on a journey when they crack open a can, finding the traditionally light lager style turned pitch black. This beer is not for the faint of heart.

A limited run of Black Horsemen Danish-style black lager will be available in cans and on draft starting Oct. 31 across Surly’s distribution footprint. King Diamond ticketholders can find the beer at select venues throughout the tour, including: Riviera Theater (Chicago, Nov. 18), Palace Theater (Minneapolis, Nov. 19), and The Fillmore (Denver, Nov. 22).

“Everything regarding this beer fits perfectly together. It’s a 6% Danish style black lager named “Black Horsemen”. The label carries the front cover of the King Diamond album “Abigail”. The yeast used to brew it comes from my long time favorite Danish brewing company, Carlsberg.

Since I had the very first taste of it, I cannot wait to taste it again, and will, without hesitation, serve it to the best of my friends any time, any day of the week. I’m extremely proud to be a participant in this. In my personal opinion, this is the perfect beer.

PS: If you are in a bar somewhere, you can’t just order “one Black Horsemen”. That would not be proper English… it has to be: “two Black Horsemen”, at the least! 😈

ABSU – Trve Brewing Company Announces Collaboration With Band To Release Four Different Beers

Trve Brewing - Eastern Candle - Absu - 2013 - promo

Denver, Colorado’s Trve Brewing Company is proud to announce details on their upcoming first out of four ales titled Eastern Candle, dedicated to the mythological occult metal act ABSU. In honor of their 20th anniversary second album, The Sun Of Tiphareth, Trve has created the first out of four ales: Eastern Candle – a pale wheat beer fermented with brettanomyces in white wine barrels. The ale is a fine equilibrium of wheat and white wine with a slight, fruit-like yeast character. (Fittingly named after the song Never Blow Out The Eastern Candle).

The three forthcoming beers to be unleashed are the following:

Tiphareth – Red Ale: This will be a soured beer with a mild strain of brettanomyces fermented in red wine barrels. This fusion will have a nice malty, tart, yet dry balance including red wine adding a background complexity.

Manannán – Brown Ale: The Manannán batch will feature rye in the grain bill, as it will be soured and fermented with a shrouded strain of brettanomyces in whiskey barrels. This will be a more assertive brew with malt character and plenty of obscurity from the yeast while also showcasing the barrel flavors.

Winter Zephyr – Black Ale: A dark wheat and dark rye concoction giving the beer its cryptic color. This ale will highlight a fair amount of oats to retain vast body after the brettanomyces have alchemically fermented in wine barrels.

ABSU recently announced details of their upcoming North American Connexus Continuation Tour, the trek to showcase the band performing set with music spanning throughout their twenty-two year recording career. This excursion is a follow-up mini-tour by the Texas-based mythological occult metal trio since the release of Abzu – the second of a planned trilogy of recordings.

Some Metal and Rock ‘N Roll Thoughts – Featuring KING LIZARD! Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

King Lizard - A Nightmare Livin' The Dream! - promo cover pic

I think it’s been quite awhile since I wrote down Some Metal and Rock ‘N Roll Thoughts on Metal Odyssey. I write plenty of them down on twitter, of course! The last time this column (theme) was posted, I believe was November 4th, 2012. Whoa! Since then my family and I have relocated to Ohio via Pennsylvania and I’ve been busier than a taxi on Broadway during Christmas; when it comes to starting over in a new state.

Within the last year or so, my love for Metal has grown ever stronger. It’s probably cause I’ve leaned on so many bands and musicians to fill my senses with their sounds, energy and vocals; just to get me through the CRAZINESS of relocating. Exhilarating. That’s what METAL is for me. I’m sure y’all know what I’m talking about too, when I equate the word exhilarating to Metal.

I’m really, really, really, really, really excited and cannot wait for the new album Axe To Grind to be released from this True Metal band, with origins from Denmark and featuring Kev Moore on vocals:

The album artwork on numerous 2013 releases that I’ve been seeing and enjoying lately is phenomenal! Suffocation’s Pinnacle Of Bedlam, Six Feet Under’s Unborn, Adrenaline Mob’s Coverta and Helloween’s Straight Out Of Hell are just a few that have my eyes popping with Metal glee! What new album artwork has you applauding lately? Share one or several and spread the Metal word here!

A couple of weeks ago (on or about) I stumbled upon seeing the new premium beer that’s coming out from the ultra legendary IRON MAIDEN. Created by IRON MAIDEN, brewed by Robinsons is: TROOPER – A Hand Crafted Ale. Kev Moore has told me that Witch Cross will have their very own brew coming out, to coincide in celebration of their new album release this Spring! Whoa!

Back in November of 2012, A Nightmare Livin’ The Dream! was released by London’s very own… KING LIZARD. This KING LIZARD band has something very cool happening with their Heavy Rock ‘N’ Roll and I’m more than happy to tell y’all about ’em.

This hell-bent-for-leather and Heavy Rockin’ band has an official trailer out called: KING LIZARD A Nightmare Makin’ The Dream that you can listen to and watch below! Whoa! Yes, that’s their album cover at the top of this post too. Metal be thy name.
