Taking inspiration from the films of Arnold Schwarzenegger and featuring a cartoon parody of the California Governor named "Ahhhnold" on periodic vocals, playing second-fiddle to AS I LAY DYING's Tim Lambesis. After releasing TOTAL BRUTAL in 2008 followed by the holiday EP A VERY BRUTAL CHRISTMAS (which I actually gave a friend for Christmas last year), most thought that ADM was a load likely spent.
The "luck of the Irish" hit me late last week when I discovered a copy of the new DROPKICK MURPHYS CD/DVD release LIVE ON LANSDOWNE, BOSTON MA in my mailbox. Yes, it was like a gracious leprechaun had delivered me a gift - granted me a wish, or left me a pot 'o audio/video gold.
Few (if any) radio shows could ever claim to challenge the legendary status of the late John Peel's THE PEEL SESSIONS on the BBC's Radio 1.

After being on hiatus for nearly a decade, ARMORED SAINT have returned with LA RAZA(due March 16, 2010 on Metal Blade) - their first set of entirely new material since 2000's REVELATION. The on-again-off-again band (due to vocalist John Bush being the in-again-out-again frontman of ANTHRAX) has been taunting fans with the prospect of a new album since 2008 when bassist Joey Vera revealed that he and Bush had started writing together again.
