Vôdûn - V11, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, 25.06.2017

Where were you on the night of June the 27th between 9:30PM and 10:30PM? What? Where? No, wait, don't tell me! I really don't care. I know for a fact that you were at the wrong place because you weren't there. There are (or were) other possible right times and right places to be (or to have been) but for just an hour on that particular night the only right place to be was at a Vôdûn gig at V11 in Rotterdam.

The Magnum Opus of Tim "Ripper" Owens

Back in 2011, when he reviewed Charred Walls Of The Damned's Cold Wind On Timeless Days, Doc Godin made a statement about Tim "Ripper" Owens that wheedled its way into my head and has stuck with me ever since. Our erstwhile editor-in-chief observed that Owens, while an accomplished vocalist and an established personality within metal, is "known better for his talents than any type of legacy with dynamite albums." Here is a man with the voice of an S-rank frontman and no magnum opus to his name.

A hundred albums? Part 1

It's been a long while since I last wrote a blog post (whether here on MS or elsewhere, tbh).

Happened that I was reflecting about how I would select one hundred albums (like, a big, round number) in all my virtual and real collection - which ones would they be? And what portrait would they deliver of me, my tastes, and my history as an avid music listener?
The challenge appealed to me, so here it is - as a series of blogs and not articles (like, it's totally personal and egocentric stuff ). It'll feature all the most important albums in my life, whether I love them unquestioningly, or because they were instrumental in my musical growth (or even growth as a human being), or as they're perfect soundtracks for the worlds in my head. So no, this is not exactly a best of list. Kind of a mix between that and my life's soundtrack.
