A Small Grab Bag of Metal...

Life has gotten in the way of blogging today! Let's fix that with a few favorites.

1. I gotta post a song from the new Novembers Doom album because it has been a huge hit with me. "Six Sides" is my favorite track off the record at the moment. Just listen to those massive riffs!

Novembers Doom - "Six Sides"

2. One of my all time favorite metal sounds is the USPM movement of the eighties. It involved power metal that was heavily influenced by thrash, creating a sound that actually had power behind it, which I can't say that same for many bands today. Liege Lord are a great band to start off with if you've never heard the sound, but there are countless bands from the movement that demonstrate its excellency.

Liege Lord - "Fear Itself"

3. For this last one, let's touch on Lizzy Borden, a favorite heavy metal band of mine. They criminally underrated and never got the exposure that they deserved. They've never put out a bad album; in fact, I highly recommend that you listen to all of Lizzy Borden's output as soon as you can.

Lizzy Borden - "Give 'em the Axe"
 (I wanted to post "No Time to Lose," but I can't find the studio version on You Tube. Make sure you listen to that song!)
