Turn Your Stupid Ashes Into Something Worthwhile

Monday, August 30th, 2010 by Vincent

Dying sucks, but at least some people are doing something about it. When you finally kick the bucket, a company called Vinyly will (with a practice that sounds soooo illegal) press your worthless burnt droppings into a 24 minute record of your choosing.  I gotta go with (When I die) I’ll Cast a Shadow.

56 for the #56 out of 100 greatest metal albums of all time, Pantera’s Vulgar Display of Power, as voted on by the readers of the Greek edition of Metal Hammer (random I know).

Pantera are by far one of our all time favorite bands. Their albums have gotten us through many a bender, and we’ve been known to wear out copies of their CDs. They’re brutal.

Pantera can claim many Halloween connections. In general, the guys (R.I.P. Dimebag) are all extremely mischievous and are known to get into all kinds of trouble. They would drink all kinds of booze, wear all kinds of silly outfits, and destroy every hotel/venue they ever played in. Known for being practical jokesters, there was always some mischief in the air with those guys. They’re probably one of the last great bands to actually have fun with what they did, and not take it all too seriously.

Oh my, haunted house season!
