Sacado de Blistering.com (la negrita es mía, el resto del párrafo está tal cual):

While on tour with The Rasmus and Negative, I caught up with a freshly woken up and very tired (And admittedly verbally challenged) Ville Valo in Milan (Spain), who was more than happy to talk about the band?s recently completed North American tour, their upcoming tour of Australia, speculation surrounding reports of a new album due sometime before the end of 2006 and the success of ?Dark Light? outside of their core European fan base.

En concreto, es el segundo párrafo de esta entrevista con Ville Valo, el tipo de las hemorroides.

La wikipedia todavía no refleja esta nueva incorporación al territorio patrio, pero me imagino que se debe a que nadie se ha molestado en actualizar el contenido. Voy a ponerme a ello.


Hace no demasiado (el 13 de Marzo, para ser exactos), los Black Sabbath originales (léase, con Ozzy a la cabeza) fueron incluidos en el Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame [wiki]. En dicho evento actuó Metallica [wiki], y el video de dicha actuación puede verse aquí:

Está curioso (sobre todo por ver a Hammett sin tocar el wah), aunque personalmente prefiero su versión del «Sabbra Cadabra» (casi tan buena como la versión de los Panic Democracy, de la que todavía no hay video :P):

En todo caso, es aún mejor el «Stone Cold Crazy» que se marcaron Hetfield y Iommi tocando con Queen:


Una pequeña actualización sobre una noticia que ya recogí hace no demasiado:

MACHINE HEAD: ‘Making Of’ Video Of Band’s Cover Of METALLICA’s ‘Battery’ Posted Online

A five-minute video clip of MACHINE HEAD rehearsing and talking about their cover version of METALLICA‘s «Battery» that was recently recorded for the upcoming Kerrang! magazine tribute to the METALLICA album «Master of Puppets», has been posted online at the band’s official web site. The CD, titled «Remastered», will be packaged with a special issue of Kerrang! commemorating the 20th anniversary of «Master of Puppets». Starting today, you can go behind-the-scenes for the making of MACHINE HEAD‘s cover of «Battery» with part one of a two-part series, now available on the «Media» page. Part two of the feature will be available on April 5, the same day that the commemorative issue of Kerrang! hits newsstands. Other bands contributing to the CD include TRIVIUM («Master Of Puppets»), MENDEED («The Thing That Should Not Be»), BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE («Welcome Home (Sanitarium)»), CHIMAIRA («Disposable Heroes»), FIGHTSTAR («Leper Messiah»), MASTODON («Orion») and FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND («Damage, Inc.»). Check out the «Remastered» cover artwork at this location.

MACHINE HEAD had previously recorded a cover of METALLICA‘s «Battery» in 2003 as part of a poll they conducted where they asked the members of the group’s official forum to list three songs that they would like to hear MACHINE HEAD cover, after which the band picked the 10 most interesting requests they felt they could do justice to. All of the forum members then voted on the final three, with the most-requested entries being given the «MACHINE HEAD treatment.» In addition to «Battery», MACHINE HEAD covered FAITH NO MORE‘s «Jizzlobber» and EXODUS«Toxic Waltz». None of the recordings were officially released.


Si la carrera musical de David Hasselhoff [wiki] alcanzó la cima con su «Hooked On A Feeling», es de justicia exponer las dotes musicales de otro gran icono ochentero:
