I just watched it the other day—it was pretty sweet, though some of it, especially the end, felt a little rushed.
The parts about the recording of Human and ITP were especially enjoyable. Good stuff!
I just watched the new documentary on the band Death, called “Death By Metal,” which you can find on Amazon Prime. It’s really sweet and touching, and does a great job reminiscing about the early days while still hitting all the biographical beats you’d expect. Also, great interviews with ex-members of Death, Sadus, and just about everybody you’d care about.
I just discovered a man on Reddit who’d done the 80s hard rock lead guitarist thing, without commercial success, and lost the drive for it. Gave up guitar playing, settled down, had some kids. About a year ago, he was somehow inspired to come out of retirement for fun, to see if he could play a fairly advanced classical guitar piece.
I do believe this is one of the first metal albums that Zig ever made me listen to. Or was it you, JaPaBo? Pouring out a tall boy….
What a bummer! You’re not wrong about Into the Mirror Black. I bought it a few years ago to prepare for Sanctuary’s Japan tour and was surprised by how much of it I remembered. Such a Carman album!
Was just rocking out with some Nevermore and Sanctuary—he was a talented guy. So sad.
(Also, pop on Into the Mirror Black and tell me you don’t immediately feel like you should be drinking a tall boy in Carman).
