I was planning on texting the photo to my wife as a suggestion for an anniversary present, but I didn't get around to it. There's always next year...

Probably told this story before but one year my boss (at the time) bought his wife a cemetery plot for an Xmas gift.

I find this so poignant and harrowing at the same time.  Simple statement that forever states this person was loved and has/had someone who loved and misses/missed him.

In one sense, yes.

In another, this dude is now forever defined by his relation to the woman who put it there. In fact, it becomes not about the man but about the monument maker. But then again, maybe all monuments are ultimately about the ones left behind...

Despite all the hi-tech equipment and endless hours in the house it took this one random selfie for us to capture the ghost of the man in the Queensryche tee.  Join us next week on "Cold Spots & Flashing Lights R Us" for more paranormal exploits.

Due to nekrotic undead qualities of frostbitten grimness, True Belief and Requiem's images can only be captured via ghost hunting equipment exclusively.

Breaking news: An innocent dinner party ouija board game ended in disaster in the neighbourhood of the infamous Castle Requiem last night. A witness at the conservative Christian soirée reported that the board suddenly spelled out TRUEBELIEF before bursting into flames, destroying a whole suburban block. Another witness claimed to hear 'Operation Mindcrime' playing faintly in the distance against the sound of the flames.

Today I went to the local Heavy Metal record store (called Mariposa Duomo) in the underground here in Milan and the guy on the right insisted on taking a picture with me.

A metal hearted man... Mr. Wolf Hoffman, ACCEPT lead guitarist and musical mastermind.

SK: "Hi Wolf, I wanna thank you for all the incredible riffs, solos and melodies that you've created. Your music has been a part of my life for 15 years and I'm deeply grateful".

WH: "Thank you, I appreciate".

SK: "You're from Solingen (German city), right?"

WH: "Yes indeed".

SK: "Now let me tell you this. Solingen is very famous for its blades, but the sharpest thing that ever came out of Solingen is YOUR MUSIC. Sharp as steel!".

WH: "Ahah thank you, but that is not true. NOTHING IS SHARPER THAN THE BLADES OF SOLINGEN".

He's a great guy! Very polite and humble. He smiled all the time and took time to sign and take pics with every metalhead around. He asked me what my name was and shook my hands twice. Being the cheesy defender of the faith I have always been and always will be, I was starstruck and in awe of him. 

I mean, he is the man that threw Beethoven's "FUR ELISE" in the middle of the "Metal Heart" solo. THE STUFF OF LEGEND.

Thats awesome!! And I love your shirt mate! Need to get an Overkill one.

Damn, nice photo! Wolf seems like a badass, and being named Wolf and playing guitar in a legendary heavy metal band, why wouldn't he be?

Under a funeral moon this evening as I stalked the streets in sorrow and woe. The night air was cold; the wolf within unchained; the nightspirits my only companions.

Thanks Deathy. I've tinkered here and there like most people on the forums. I was out walking with this amazing moon and tried to capture the moment. Somehow photos of the moon (taken on phones) don't turn out as cool as hoped.

Oh, I'd thought that was an astral projection of the wolf within, or maybe a nightspirit.

Sorry dude, my bad, the white hot spiritfire ov blakkhearts it is. Honestly my first thought was that it was whatever UFO dropped you off, but then I figured I'd better play along and say the stuff about wolves.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
