Recap by The Metal Wulf

Mercia were originally scheduled to join us for a bit, but they're currently in the studio recording their next album, so we'll just have to catch up with them another time.
Matt and Sean from Lowkey, however, were on hand, and brought us up to speed with some things in their camp. Pretty much what you'd expect from them this time of year, hittin' up a lot of the local outdoor shindigs, with TrishStock coming up next. They've got a new disc to support, so you can expect to hear plenty of new tracks played live if you make it to a show. Something I highly recommend, by the way, always a good time!
Azkath joined us once again, and seemed highly miffed at my behavior on No Pants Day. 
Which is kinda weird, to be honest, because if somebody should be pissed, it's me...something I made decidedly clear in a little rant I made regarding the beating I took at the hands of Jeffie and JustJoe.
Yep, it's pretty sad when a person tries to come out of his shell, only to be reviled and treated with intolerance and violence. Josh even knew where I was going, as I accused Jeffie and JustJoe of enacting a hate crime on me.
I also swore vengeance on them both...
Above and beyond that, it was pretty much an evening of pumping ourselves up for Finger Lakes MetalFest, which was amazing, as always. The bands kicked ass and we seemed to have a really good turn-out, which gives some hope for next year being even bigger and better. 
Enough 'bout that for now, though, I'm pretty sure we'll have plenty to share on the next show!


August 6, 2011 - Lowkey and the ROC City Roller Girls

  • Published in 2011

Recap by The Metal Wulf;
So, here I sit, contemplating the daunting task of writing a recap for an edition of The Metallic Onslaught that I wasn't even present for.  An earlier than normal work shift made me think that it may have been a good idea to hang back for a night.
Still, I tuned in to listen, at the same time leaving my own two cents here and there on the Onslaught Facebook page, which I've been known to do on nights like that. I'd honestly had visions of going to bed at around midnight or so, thinking I'd get plenty of sleep, but the truth is, I just didn't feel tired. So I listened some more. 12:30: Not tired. 1:00 Not tired. 1:30 Not tired. Sincerely, I ended up listening right up until the last talk break, not beginning to feel even remotely sleepy until roughly 1:50. Oh well... So, having listened throughout the evening, I was able to garner enough info to do my usual recap. Ahem...

Roc City Roller Derby members Izzy Normous and Cuss Muffin were on hand to promote this Saturday's bout at the Dome Arena, this one entitled Babes Of The Brawl. Rick, Josh, and myself will actually be in attendance for this one. I'm releived, too, because I was starting to think I'd never make it to a derby bout this year, and that would be a damned shame! I guess Josh will be wearing a bunny outfit to this bout. I can't honestly remember the specifics of WHY he'll be in a bunny outfit, but hey, who am I to judge? In fact, this will work out just great, because I'll be breaking out the ol' WarWulf persona. That's right, don't panic, there are going to be both a wolf AND a bunny in the suicide seats this time!
I'm thinking this is going to be insanely fun, and then some. Oh, for the record, Josh will be referred to as Floppy. Yes, that's right, Floppy Nolin. Personally, I think Floppy O'Nolin would sound a little better, but that is entirely up to his discretion.
Seriously, though, just imagine WarWulf chasin' Floppy around the ol' Dome Arena... There was some mention of Cuss Muffin having monkeys on her head in some of her photos. Hey, Cuss gets around, and if she's in parts of the world where monkeys can climb on you, well, hey, there's WORSE things! Like, how about parts of the world where tarantulas eat cockroaches while perched on top of your toothbrush? Cuss has had that happen as well... Ick... So, something was mentioned about somehow having monkeys brought onto the Metallic Onslaught. Personally, I think this could be fun, as long as there's no flinging of gross bodily excretions involved. Of course, it would just complement the usual assortment of poo-related humor, so... Lowkey were also on hand, to promote the upcoming 2011 edition of Hagefest, a three-day event that takes place in Sodus, NY the weekend of August 19-21. Thirty bands in three bands, representing some of the best bands our area has to offer. I'd highly recommend going if you've nothing better to do that weekend. Always good to get out and promote the local scene. Rick will actually be there on that Saturday, and Lowkey have personally invited him to announce the bands for that day. A disturbing topic was brought up, as something was mentioned about Jackie Stallone doing psychic readings. Based on photos of people's buttocks... Yeah, I was pretty perplexed about this, but apparently if you send Jackie a photo of your ass, she can tell you things about yourself as related to your past and future and stuff like that. I think she's just a strange old lady with some really twisted tastes, but that's just me... Jeffie arrived eventually, of course, and it's probably just as well for him that I wasn't on hand this week. I've gotta have a word or two with that guy regarding some things he did to my chewing gum last week. Seriously, this Jeffie could quite possibly lead me back to cigarette smoking. Of course, he'd probably just find a way to dose my smokes, and some of his concoctions are less than pleasant. So, he was mentioning some things about my adventures after his Viagra/Ecstacy combination had its' way with me. Police were involved...  Squirrels were involved... Trees... Scratches and bite marks... The story is still gonna have to wait a bit, though. Bill, Erica, Rick and myself will all be going to The Haunt in Ithaca to see Sorrow Of Batavia, along with  Of Wrath And Ruin, LAW (Lucifer At Work), and Neon Guillotine. Been waiting a long time to see Sorrow Of Batavia perform, and this is looking to be a kick-ass show from start to finish! I'll be back for the show on the following week, though, and rest assured, the story will be told. And afterward, the Malachi Crunch is going to be among the least of Jeffie's worries...


April 30 2011 - Compressed, Spater, and Lowkey

  • Published in 2011

Recap by Randy, aka Wulfie, who isn't ashamed to occasionally dance with his cats...

So, as of this writing we are officially just 3 weeks away from Finger Lakes Metal Fest, and in the interest of further promotion we had both Compressed and Lowkey in the studio, as well as Dave and Terry from Spater. We'll be having more bands from the event on the show in a couple of weeks, with Caroline Blue scheduled join us next. No denying it, we're all pretty damned pumped about this show! Speaking of being pumped for shows, a few of us were excited for a grand total of about 24 hours when we heard that KISS was coming to the Event Center at Turning Stone Casino at the end of July. Of course, the excitement was short-lived when we heard the tickets STARTED at $95 and went upward, to $1150. Sorry, guys, no dice, not everybody has that kind of scratch, not even for the nose-bleed seats, I don't care how great of a show you put on. I mean, really, Ozzy was able to do a full round of Ozzfest shows for free, maybe KISS could take a lttle cue from him and REALLY give something back to their fans... Oddly enough, Joe seems to think that I'm somehow made of money, and will be purchasing KISS VIP packages for everybody on the Onslaught. You know, I've discovered that it's really not a good idea to upset delusional people. I figure I'm just gonna let this one slide, and maybe he'll forget all about it!

Speaking of delusional, Joe still seems to think that it was Loverboy I went to see a couple weeks back, when it was Tesla. Can't seem to convince him otherwise. He also seems to think that I dance with my cats while listening to Loverboy, and I made sure that everybody was aware that it's not Loverboy that's playing when I dance with my cats. Oh, come on, don't tell me you're never held onto your pets' front paws and danced with them... I think that covers the important points. Like I said, look for more promotion of Finger Lakes Metal Fest, and more bands featured on that show. Won't be next week, though, because the time is almost here. Yep, that one day of the year that, for obvious reasons, we all dread. Next week is our annual celebration of No Pants Day. For those of you who've followed the show, you have at least a vague idea of what to expect. For those new to the show, however... well, just consider yourself warned...
