‘Red Water (Christmas Mourning)’ by Type O’Negative

Since it is the Christmas and New Year time I am posting Type O’Negative today. For some reason this band has the songs that are appropriate for almost every holiday of the year, and I guess it only confirms how vast was the musical vision of Peter Steele.

Red Water (Christmas Mourning)

Wake up, it’s Christmas mourn,
Those loved have long since gone.

The stocking are hung but who cares?
preserved for those no longer there.

six feet beneath me sleep.

Black lights hang from the tree,
accents of dead holly.

Whoa mistletoe
(It’s growing cold)
I’m seeing ghost,
(I’m drinking old)
Red water
Red water
(Red water)
Red water chase them away.

My tables been set for but seven,
just last year I dined with eleven.

goddamn ye
merry gentlemen

Whoa mistletoe
(It’s growing cold)
I’m seeing ghosts
(I’m drinking old)
Red water
Red water
(Red water)
Red water chase them away.

(Chase them away)
(Don’t chase them away)

‘Crazy Train’ With Randy Rhoads On Guitar

Guess who I added to the graveyard’s alley today? When I got the concept of this page in May, I immediately started to write down the names of the musicians whom I should gather here and initially there was eight of them. The first names were obvious: Peter Steele, Quorthon, Ronnie James Dio, others appeared in my mind as I was doing a quick research in my memory of heavy metal music: Chuck Schulinder, Jeff Hanneman, while Dead, Somnium and Valfar came to my mind when I listened to their songs. I wrote short bios based on Wikipedia and added photos, exactly like I did for Grunge Graveyard years ago. I thought I was done. Then I recalled Dimebag and Cliff. Then I recalled Nicole and Aleah. But I thought, Ok now it is done.

And then, just a couple of weeks ago, we were checking the English presentation that my friend prepared for this weekend’s conference and it included the example of Ozzy Osbourne. While we were examining his case, I suddenly thought of a horrific episode from his history and another name came to my mind. Randy Rhoads.

So here he is in a video devoted to him and I have a personal request for all the metal musicians: please do take care of yourself! Eat healthy food, exercise, and do not take unnecessary risk! I know it doesn’t sound like a stereotypical rock’n’roll lifestyle but I just don’t want you to be included on this page! I want you to live, create and flourish until you are 80 or 90. Until then, please do not give me the reasons to place you here, ok?!

 

Carnivore Announce Their Reactivation

Carnivore posted the following message on their Facebook page on Aug 16th

After 7 years worth of grieving, homage and more recently, enthusiasm. Myself, Louis Beato & Baron Misuraca have decided to work together to reform the true original Carnivore. A Carnivore for the 21st Century. Carnivore A.D. The tickets for our first show, to be held on Halloween, Tue. Oct. 31st, go on sale this Friday, Aug. 18th at 12 noon. Carnivore A.D.’s “Steele-tacular” debut will share the stage with N.J.’s bloodiest old school thrash band, the incredible (and incredibly intense): BLOODFEAST, legendary Tri-State Area Black Sabbath tribute band: SABBRA CADABRA and Techno-Metal Masked Industrial Maniacs: VIBRATER (in which a certain unnamed member of CRUMBSUCKERS (and ex-member of The Genitorturers) is masked). Look for my next announcement on Fri. 8/18 @ 12Noon. I’ll let everyone know where to buy tickets online at that time. This is a huge step for us. One taken with the utmost respect and pure joy for music. We’re certain Peter would be proud to see Baron, Louie and myself making out best efforts to revive and keep alive his incredible legacy of thought provoking metal. The fans have spoken as well, and they dream of seeing Carnivore perform again, so now we’re going to make your wildest dreams come true. See you Friday at Noon.
