07:20 - Apothecary In other news, this album is so addictive it should be a Schedule I drug [link]
07:12 - theFIST wormed are at willowtip, they toured with those 2
06:35 - Apothecary We'll just have to agree to disagree then, as much as I love both bands, I still consider Zeppelin and Deep Purple hard rock at the very most
06:34 - flightoficarus Big sale at Willowtip. Best band there besides Ulcerate and Gigan?
06:33 - Apothecary Doom/stoner/sludge has its roots in Sabbath, and power and speed/thrash in Priest. I'd say everything else was just bands taking those categories and then building upon them to create new ones
06:30 - deadone That doesn't preclude Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin being pioneers in heavy metal and as such considered part of the genre, even though they happily sit outside it sometimes.
In June of this year we were fortunate enough to return to Mexico City for three sold out shows at Foro Sol Stadium and with 155,000 of you there over the three nights, we knew it would be extra special. So we asked our friend Wayne Isham to join us with a film crew and the results of that crazy, magical, most memorable long weekend will be available on DVD and CD starting November 30 as Orgullo, Pasion y Gloria: Tres Noches En La Ciudad de Mexico (Pride, Passion, and Glory: Three Nights in Mexico City).
The region free DVD's and CD's include songs from all three shows recorded on June 4, 6, and 7. Each show had a unique set list, totaling 34 different songs... they're all there on the two DVD set along with interviews with us. Other versions that will be available include one DVD (18 tracks), Blu-ray version of that DVD, a digi-pack with the DVD and two CD's, and finally the aforementioned deluxe version in a slip case with two DVD's and two CD's. Tracklistings for each configuration can be seen here. In keeping with the local theme, all the credits will be in Spanish (Portuguese for our Brazilian buddies) and will only be available at stores in Latin America. Of course we will also have it in The Official Metallica.com Store, starting sometime the week of December 7.
"Gripping virtuoso guitar licks and a glimpse at history as it was being made accurately summarize Jason Becker's new album, "Collection". Even as paralysis set in from his disease, Jason still had a strong desire to compose ."Collection" not only contains some of Jason's favorite moments from his Shrapnel and David Lee Roth recordings, it also features three new Becker compositions, each as impressive as anything he has recorded in the past. Jason has enlisted some of the largest names in instrumental guitar music and has as many as three guitarists per track trading off riveting performances. Including performances by Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Michael Lee Firkins, Marty Friedman and Greg Howe. "Collection" is exactly the kind of record that Becker fans have been waiting for."
