Metal news, open studio

For those of you in the Kansas City area, I will be participating in an open studio as part of the Urban Culture Project’s Third Friday openings. THIS Friday, September 21st. I will be at the studio between 7-9pm. The location is 125 E. 12th St. I’m in the back room.

I found a great article on the Finnish folk-metal band Finntroll. Finntroll incorporates traditional Nordic folk music with metal. An odd sounding idea, but they sound pretty good. It’s kind of catchy. You can listen to some of their songs on the Finntroll MySpace page.

In an odd development, Disney apparently has banned metal bands from performing in establishments that they own. I say it’s an odd development, because…why now? I’m sure these bands have been performing there for years. There has to be something else going on. Meanwhile, someone needs to talk to Disney about the slutty princess-themed outfits a neighbor gave to my niece for her birthday.  A tube top for a three year old?

Finally, a well written and thorough article on Brian Slagel, founder of Metal Blade Records. For the record, he thinks metal is about to blow up again.
