Feels like a metal kind of weekend. Or "metal".
I bet a sorcerer would pledge to the WGOM. Why haven't you?
C'mon, cheaptoy, that's 2 metal ("metal"? "metal?"?) bands in one week. On Pledge Drive week no less! You can't say your interests aren't represented.
Huh, I'm surprised I haven't heard of these guys before.
Hmm... what's visual kei? That's potential rabbit hole material right there.
Where's that cheaptoy signal?

Happy birthday, Dino!
As per usual, I listened to a lot of new music this year. Only problem is that it was only new to me. But! I did listen some stuff actually released this year. I definitely had a year of somewhat cheesy power metal, so my favorite from the past 12 months was the second album, Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards, from an awesome band I recently discovered:
October is here. Pure direct marketing of processed sugar for the next 31ish days.
I don't know if this is a wedding or a funeral.
After agreeing to do this, I remembered I have only heard one new thing from 2013. I picked up Within the Frozen Design by Winter Storm because it sounded interesting and I have entirely too few albums and bands based around winter. Also, this is pretty good stuff and a change of pace within the symphonic metal realm from bands like Epica and Nightwish. (sorry about the lack of live-ness of this video. It was the only video from the band I could find. Also, that is the drummiest looking drummer I have ever seen.)
This has cheap and e-6 bait rolled into one clip and perfectly half baked to AMR's droning taste. This isn't my normal bag, but I'm kind of hooked on these folks.
