Recap by The Metal Wulf;

Finger Lakes Metal Fest is just three weeks away, believe it or not, and in our continuing coverage of bands that are appearing at this year's event, we had Drew DeJohn (drummer for The Untold Lies) in the studio. Now, I know for a fact that Drew had been chomping at the bit to come out and hang with us for quite some time, and it was very cool to have him join us.

As for the band, I've seen them a couple of times, and I like them quite a lot, truth be told. They've got a very strong sound that's more hard rock than metal, and an amazingly talented vocalist in Michelle Sestito. The band is also rounded out by B.J. Carter (former Forty Oz. Failure) and Larry Snyder (former Bloodreign) on guitars, and Anson Stiles on bass.

All told, I can't say enough good things about this band. I highly recommend coming out on May 19th to check them out for yourself, along with the rest of the great line-up we have this year!

Many things were discussed on this evening. Joe, Rick, Josh, and I had all gone to Syracuse last Sunday night to take in Overkill, with supporting artists God Forbid, SuidAkrA, and Diamond Plate. Great show that actually resulted in me thinking it's about time I invested in a pair of earplugs. Yep, I think I'm done taking my chances. For a long time it was a running joke that I may have had cast-iron eardrums, but nothing could be further from the truth, and Overkill is the first band that really left me pondering the future of my hearing.

Yeah, Overkill are really, REAALLLY fucking LOUD! And that's a good thing!

Gotta give a shout-out for Diamond Plate, from Chicago. These guys are very much an old-school thrash metal band in all but age, and they just get better and better each time I see them. Their "Generation Why?" CD comes highly recommended, and you should sincerely check them out if you haven't already!

Can't remember how the subject was breached, but Josh had us busting a gut on the way home from that concert as he started impersonating Shaggy from Scooby-Doo. Josh does a GREAT Shaggy, by the way, and this topic was actually briefly discussed on the show this past Friday. If you were tuned in, you know what I'm talkin' about, and if you weren't...well, what the HELL is the matter with you? You should be checkin' this out!

We actually kicked the show off with a little birthday tribute to Ace Frehley as we played "Snowblind" from his KISS solo album, plus "Parasite" from "Alive!". What can I say? Joe and I freakin' LOVE KISS, and Ace is the freakin' man!

This somehow eventually led to the playing of a Cattle Decapitation (which had been hilariously mis-pronounced as Cannibal DeCATitation) track called (as I recall...) "Forced Gender Reassignment". We only briefly wondered at the meaning of the song title. All doubt was removed as we returned for a talk break and I discovered that my balls had been blown off...Yep, chances are if you're band is called Cattle Decapitation, you're music isn't going to sound like freakin' Lionel Richie...

Jeffie was on hand once again, this time going on about finding an entrance to Hollow Earth (or Earf in Onslaught speak...), where a massive robot invasion was about to commence. Yep, Jeffie was pretty much convinced that Earf was doomed. As a matter of fact, he wasn't entirely convinced that some of us weren't actually robots in the first place. Apparently the best way to tell was to tickle us. Obviously, if we were ticklish, we were NOT robots...

Gotta appreciate that Jeffie logic!

There was actually a moment of concern when Josh didn't appear to be ticklish at all. I mean, of all people to NOT be ticklish, he'd be the last! But, he seemed to be enduring it better than normal, and honestly had Jeffie thinking that maybe Josh had been replaced with some Unholy Bionic Beast From Below...

But, no, it was Josh displaying some improved endurance. Who would have thought?

Surprisingly, Josh had one of his rare moments of assertiveness. Every now and then Jeffie pushes his buttons just the wrong way, and Josh will actually stand up for himself! Yes, our Josh is fully capable of growing a set when necessary! But, then, as his assertiveness is displayed, he tends to talk a little like The Incredible Hulk...

Not sure how that particular correlation works, in all honesty...hmmmmm...this may warrant further investigation...

There was, of course, further discussion of No Pants Day, as the wait is almost over. Yep, tune in next week, because it's THAT time again! So many questions to be answered this year, I tell ya...Will I wear DOUBLE PANTS this year, just to make up for destroying everybody's sanity last year? Will Jeffie come "Power Un-Pantsed", as he puts it? (Gawd, I hope not...) Will our minds be the same afterward? (Well, probably not, but that's more or less the norm on even an average week...) Tune in and find out! The madness is coming!
