Recap by The Metal Wulf

Pretty damned good evening on the show, consdering we were originally going to pre-record the show. But, Joe decided to stick around, so it was he, and Rick, along with Josh and myself, who entertained throughout the evening.

Being Friday the 13th, it was only natural for Joe to play Alice Coope's "He's Back (The Man Behind The Mask)", even though it's really not among Joe's favorite Coop tracks. Truth is, Constrictor really doesn't rate to highly among Joe's favorite albums by Alice, although I personally didn't find it to be THAT terrible.

Joe actually suggested that I need to dress as Jason Voorhees tomorrow night when we go see Alice open for Iron Maiden at Darien Lake. Joe feels that Alice may actually play that song if I dress as Jason Voorhees, complete with hockey mask and machete, and approach the stage while Alice is playing. Personally, the only thing I see happening is ending up in a jail cell...which would endanger my chances of seeing Maiden for my first time, and THAT'S NOT HAPPENING!!!

And it's not just me who hasn't seen Maiden before. Foul Mouth Girl will be joining us for this show, and she hasn't seen either Maiden OR Alice Cooper before! Seriously, this is going to be a great time, can't wait to share the experience on the next Onslaught!

We were happy to announce that Judas Priestess would be playing in Seneca Falls at the Women's Right To Rock Festival. This show has already happened, and if you were there to witness it, consider yourself lucky, because these ladies kicked ass! Some may bitch that Militia doesn't sound like Rob Halford, and those are the people who don't freaking get it. These ladies aren't looking to copy Priest, they're looking to pay tribute and give the classic songs their own personal spin. I'm happy to say that it works, and Militia sounds freaking AMAZING singing those songs.

Don't believe me? Go to the Metallic Onslaught website and click my YouTube page, where you'll find plenty of live evidence from that show, plus an almost 20-minute interview with the entire band. Personally, I look forward to seeing and hanging with them again sometime!

So, it wouldn't be an evening on the Onslaught if we didn't get caught up in some completely nonsensical discussions. Somehow, we got on the subject of Faith No More and their former guitar player, Jim Martin. Jim, last I knew, was a pumpkin farmer, and this fact led to a discussion concerning why somebody would leave such an amazing band, only to devote his time to growing pumpkins. Of course, the only conclusion we could come to is that he's really Linus from Peanuts, and he's attempting to genetically engineer The Great Pumpkin, in the hopes of unleashing him upon mankind. We even came to the conclusion that he's still got his blanket, only now it's used to buff his guitar...

Hey, it could happen!

Or not...

And, I'm sad to say, for those who were tuned in, there was no nakedness on the show, after all. I was really pushing for it, knowing that after midnight it had officially become National Naked Day. Actually, if you look up the info, it was actually National Nude Day, as National Naked Day was supposedly back on the third of May. Naked or Nude, don't matter, there was none of it happening this past Friday night, as much as I really pushed for it.

I'll bet Jeffie would have celebrated if he'd shown up, though...

Ummm...yeah, best not to think of that...
