Good morning fellow metal-heads and loyal readers! I bring to you today news so spectacular and overwhelming, you might want to take a seat to read it. That is, if for some reason you stand whilst at the computer.
I was doing the usual morning MySpace check and it would seem that... 1990’s pop sensation Hanson will be returning with a new album! I completely forgot about them, but remembered clips from my youth of some indecipherable lyrics being sung while three beautiful girls roller bladed around on MTV. But wait--after some digging, I realized that this latest development is actually a tragedy, because the three little girls grew up to be men, and the Hanson Brothers are not making a return. They have in fact, been pumping out albums for the last decade in relative obscurity, and this next album is a fleeting attempt to re-up their previous success. Sad stuff.
What has this got to do with metal you ask? Well, absolutely nothing except it’s yet again a slow news day and I felt compelled to share. Today’s headlines are being dominated by the death of Type O Negative's frontman, Peter Steele. While it’s sad anytime someone in the community passes away, we have never made mention of Type O Negative on the site before, so right now, nor in this context, is the time to do so.
