Recap by Randy MetalWulf; With this show falling on Friday the 13th, it only stood to reason that we once again kicked it off with Alice Cooper's "He's Back (The Man Behind The Mask)", one of Joe's favorite rock songs, EVER! Yeah, Joe may rant and rave that he hates the song, but this has been a tradition for at least as long as I've been involved with the show, and very likely much, much longer.
As a matter of fact, Joe seemed very confused as to why this song ended up first on the playlist for the week, insisting that he didn't put it in there at all. He even went so far as to place the blame on Azkath, who I'm sure would never pull something as underhanded as sabotaging the playlist.
Honestly, Joe just LOVES that song, and that's all there is to it! I'm even willing to bet that he's just chomping at the bit to play it again next month!
Anyhow, the main subject at hand this week was the announcement of the lineup for this year's installment of Finger Lakes Metal Fest, an event that we all look forward to. Once again, the show will be held at Donselaar's in Clyde, NY and will feature twenty bands on two stages. It's a FREE show, open to all ages, and will once again be emceed by The Metallic Onslaught!
Event founder David Henninger was on hand to make the official announcement, so, without further ado, here is the much-anticipated lineup for the event this year:Read more...
