The Sword has a new album out. If you like metal, you should investigate.
Deanna took me to see Three Inches of Blood a week or two ago at Richards on Richards, and it was hilarious. Heavy metal fans are way more fun to watch than the band itself. The mosh pit was about two rows shy of being surfable, but that didn’t stop many a metalhead. It was great sport to watch them sink, flip, and collapse into the maelstrom of black t-shirts, especially the unfortunately-dressed (or undressed) ladies. We had a bird’s eye view from the balcony right above the band so if we leaned back a bit it seemed like all those people were giving the satan-rock fingers to US.
