Massive Metal Monday: “We’ll Burn the Sky” by The Scorpions
Ides Bergen   |  

Scorpios with Uli Jon Roth

Taken by Force was the fifth Scorpions album. Issued in December of 1977, it would be their last album to feature lead guitar virtuoso Uli Jon Roth. The lyrics for the song “We’ll Burn the Sky” were adapted from a poem by Roth’s wife at the time Monica Dannemann. Dannemann had been the last girlfriend of Jimi Hendrix. Hendrix died in her London flat and the lyrics to “We’ll Burn the Sky” are a tribute to him. (Be sure to check out the dance performed by singer Klaus Meine during Roth’s blistering guitar solo in the video!)

1349 Band Photo

For this week’s edition of Black Metal Friday we examine the force of nature that is 1349.

Watch the video for “When I Was Flesh” here below.

The band hails from Oslo, Norway and their name is a reference to the year that the black plague reached Norway. Led by frontman Ravn and drummer Frost (who is also a member of Satyricon), the band present a challenging aural assault that is only intensified by their electrifying live performances. See for yourself in the official video for “When I Was Flesh,” the fifth track from the band’s fifth album, 2010′s Demonoir.

Disney In Depth: Honoring Robin Williams’ Disney Legacy
Brett Nachman   |

“When you read, don’t just consider what the author thinks, consider what you think.”

So true are the words of John Keating, the character from the movie Dead Poets Society portrayed by Robin Williams in an Oscar-nominated performance. The actor’s death, tragic in that a man who gave the world so much joy could never appear to possess joy himself, continues to startle Hollywood. There are few performers we could call “genius,” but Williams was one of them, an irrefutably gifted comic-turned-actor who was as much a poetic dramatic actor as he was a comedic revelation.

Black Metal Friday: Satyricon ‘The Pentagram Burms’
Ides Bergen   |  

Satyricon Band Photo

This week we look at the first black metal band to ever sign with a major record label (EMI). Hailing from Oslo, Norway, Satyricon formed in 1991. Since 1993, Satyr (vocals) and Frost (drums) have been the band’s only permanent members. Their first three albums were very true to the core formula of black metal, but starting with their fourth album, Satyricon started to incorporate more traditional hard rock elements. As a result, the band has become one of the biggest international success stories to emerge from the Norwegian black metal scene.

“The Pentagram Burns” is the third track of their sixth album Now, Diabolical released in 2006. Check it out here below.
