Rock thoughts II! The sequel!

Queensryche

I’m way more excited than I thought I would be for next week’s Queensryche covers album, Take Cover, after hearing a stream of it at Rhino’s site. It’s all one stream, but you can skip ahead to hear other parts – that’s what I did. I’m not much for hearing the whole album up front – why spoil all the fun – but a taster is a good thing.

01. Welcome To the Machine (Pink Floyd)
02. Heaven On Their Minds (Jesus Christ Superstar)
03. Almost Cut My Hair (Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young)
04. For What It’s Worth (Buffalo Springfield)
05. For The Love Of Money (The O’Jays)
06. Innuendo (Queen)
07. Neon Knights (Black Sabbath)
08. Synchronicity II (The Police)
09. Red Rain (Peter Gabriel)
10. Odissea (Carlo Marrale & Cheope)
11. Bullet The Blue Sky (Live)(U2)

More Dethklok

I’m also way excited for the prospects of a live CD and/or DVD of the upcoming Dethklok tour. Why? Well, not only is it a killer album (one of the year’s best, to be honest,) but the live band is comprised of Brendon Small, presumably on guitar and definitely on vocals, with album drummer Gene Hoglan, along with one of my favorite guitar gods, Mike Keneally, and his “bass boy” Bryan Beller – a killer bassist in his own right. Here he is talking about filling the role for the band:

And, no, I’m not going to stop talking about this until you buy this album.

Keneally.com

Aw, man, how cool – right on the front page, Mike points out my raving, drooling praise for the hat. and Boil That Dust Speck remasters earlier this year, even going so far as to point to this site and not Blogcritics! Go over there and give this man some money. He good people.

Which reminds me . . . I need to finish watching all of the many, many features on those bonus DVDs. Man, they crammed a lot of stuff on those.
