Charles In Charge

Last Sunday was the Season Three premiere of Metalocalypse and it seems that the creative ambitions have expanded with the new 30-minute time slot. First a quibble with the people at Adult Swim — what is with the unbelievably lame designation ‘Stoner Series’? Dude. Seriously uncool. So, in last season’s cliffhanging finale it looked as

You Should Be Dancing

And at the complete opposite end of the musical spectrum from Low Anthem, one finds the positively epic Tragedy — All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees! These guys opened for Dethklok last month and blew everybody away (tough crowd too, more Deth-y than Disco).  They know how to play, the arrangements are wildly original,

Shoegazers — Repent And Be Saved

Remember fun? It looks and sounds like this. Tickets are still available for Thursday’s show at the Foxboro venue, Showcase Live. Brendon Small, the creative and musical genius behind Dethklok, will be performing some Dethklok songs and ‘Metal Klassix’ with the School of Rock All-Stars which is not as bogus as you might think (and

Dethklok For Cutie

Really? This is what’s behind the curtain? Not really very death-y. I mean I knew it was a cartoon but… really?! At any rate, good news for Metalocalypse fans, Dethklok is a real band and it’s touring. Nearest venue — the Palladium in Worcester, June 24th. Mr. Small (Berklee grad!) and Mr. Blacha are the
