I’m using the tried and true selection methodology of whatever song has been running constantly in my head for the past week or so.

Iron Saviour (or Savior) is unusual in the power metal genre because instead of fantasy, the band uses science fiction for its themes.
I’ve noticed two big differences in how I approach concerts than I did when I was younger.
I no longer feel the need or desire to be in the crush around the stage. Hell, I’m willing to pAy a bit extra to get seats away from the floor.
Ear pro. I remember boasting of being slightly deaf to my dad after he picked me up from a Faith No More concert. I was stupid back then.
I’m sure there are more, but those were the two that stuck out at me.
Ghost is one of those interesting theatrical groups. They do the satanic metal bit, with the kicker that they’re lead singer is an anti-Pope. The music has a unique sound amongst the metal bands.
According to the YouTube video, this is Jon Bon Jovi’s very first recording.
Another song from the burying through Derek’s head. And it’s Blind Guardian. They don’t make many mediocre songs.
We’ve had Holyhell on here before, and this is one of their more interesting songs.
Yeah, I know. How utterly surprising that a Sabaton song shows up on Metal Tuesday. Well, this one has been playing almost nonstop in my head for the past few days. Because it’s that awesome!
And it’s about the largest cavalry charge in history. Seriously, read up on the Battle of Vienna.
Lyrics in the video.
Since Halloween had to land on a Monday this year, I’m doing my Halloween post a week early. And I’m doing TWO songs this week because this group is just that awesome. Especially if you’re nostalgic for the 80’s Transformers.
