Recap from The Metal Wulf

Had Darrel Lake on hand to help promote the upcoming event, "Bring 'Em Home", a multi-band show to help benefit the Wounded Warrior Project at the American Legion in Geneva, NY on April 20. The show will feature a solid selection of local bands as well as some out-of-state talent, and should kick ass. Best of all, it's for a good cause! Pretty safe to say that at least a couple of us will be on hand!
Joe seemed to take a great deal of pleasure in the amount of suffering I'd been going through as a result of his implanting me with the Abba Chip.
It was bad, people. I'm dead serious when I say there are few things worse than hearing ABBA in every piece of music that makes it to your ear canal. Think I'm kidding? Television theme songs...radio of all varieties...the muzak system at work...all ABBA, all the time...
No shit, I was ready to power drill straight into my brain, from both ears... 
However, Joe WAS kind enough to turn the chip off for a brief amount of time, as we played the newest track from Darkthrone, which clocks in at almost fourteen minutes, and completely kicks ass. Looking forward to hearing the entire new disc once it's available. I'm thinking it could be an early contender for this year's Top 10...but, then, it really is far too early to say!
I was pretty much begging him to take the chip out, especially knowing that Rick, Josh, Bill, Erica, and myself were all headed to Buffalo to see Testament (along with Overkill, Flotsam & Jetsam, and 4Arm) at the Town Ballroom. I really wanted to enjoy that show, and the idea of hearing ABBA vocals emanating from Chuck Billy's throat just made me cringe... 
Things actually worked out well in the end, as Azkath was on hand, further taunting me with breath strips. He ended up pushing me a little too far, and I ended up mugging him, mercilessly, for his entire stash.
Yep, I devoured every last breath strip he had, after pummeling him and throwing him into some of the equipment, savoring the minty freshness for the rest of the evening.
Joe was so impressed by the amount of violence I directed at Seriah that he decided to cut me a break, deactivating the ABBA Chip, and allowing me to enjoy the concert in all it's Thrash-tastic goodness!
See, happy endings really do happen!
So, next installment, we'll be having Ferg and the rest of the boys from Setiva on hand. This should be a fun night to tune in, as most of us have known Ferg since his days in Loopus. Lookin' forward to this one!
