What's coming up?


It's Black Friday and if you went out shopping today then more power to you. I was watching "Jingle all the way" and even though they were last minute Christmas shoppers it still comes to mind when I think of crazy shoppers. We were not going to go out today, but then we saw a sales ad for Target where they were having selected seasons of Monk going for $13.99 a piece. So my wife braved Target at 6:00AM and said it was insane, but she came away with seasons 4 and 5 of Monk plus she didn't lose any fingers or get run over by a shopping cart. In the past the first week of December has meant I do a countdown of my top ten albums from twenty years ago and I began working on that in the fall, but I have decided not to do it this year and I probably won't do it again. It was fun for a while, but I am enjoying reviewing current albums and have so many of those to do. I will however be expanding my year end event for 2008. It will be towards the end of December and I will take a whole week and do the following:
- top 25 countdown of the best hard rock/metal albums of 2008 done in groups of five so it will take five days.
-top 5 re-issues of 2008
-top 5 demos of 2008
-5 worst albums of 2008
plus I will still be trying to squeeze in current reviews as well so one busy week of writing this month is about all I can handle.

Here is what I hope to have out this week.

Reviews of...
Dark Funeral-Attera Orbis Terrarum part 2 DVD
Ross the boss-New Metal leader
Dir En Grey-Uroboros
Underride-One of us
We wish you a metal xmas

-interview with Zebulon Pike
-maybe a Clash of the album covers
and hopefully Lesser of two evils at long last

Have a great week!

I started listening to Metal Xmas and it's a hair cheesy, but much heavier than Monster Ballads Xmas. Glad you got Ross the Boss; can't wait to listen to that one.
