Last week’s Battle of the Black, Scandinavian edition, was easily taken by Enslaved with 100% of the votes. Congrats to them, they deserve the win!
This week I am toning things down a bit. I am revisiting the non-so-fine line of distinction between David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar fans when it concerns Van Halen. A while back when we ran this poll, Van Halen didn’t have anything new released. Now that we have newly recorded material with David Lee Roth on vocals, has your opinion changed? Do you like the new music, hate it, or wish Sammy never left. Just for your information, last time this debate was polled on A Metal State of Mind, Sammy Hagar won. Where do you stand now?
This week, I am going to explore relationships within heavy metal. This is about how metal bands are basically tied together like a long list of cousins; some you know and some you don’t. Each metal band, in its own right, is not very far removed the metal band down the street. Starting with one of my Top-10 favorite bands, Machine Head, we’ll see how interconnected the metal world is. Ever heard of 6-degrees to Kevin Bacon? This is where this Themed Thursday is going.
