While breezing through the Facebook Timelines for information that was NOT political arguments or involving the latest crap that the Kardashians are up to, I discovered that once again the lads in Powerglove had dished out another fancy little ditty as a part of their “Song Of The Month” club. The band has been doing this for a few months now with songs like “Kirby” and “Kraid’s Lair” and now with “Mario Minor 2” are continuing the process of presenting their eventually coming album “Continue”. It’s got a fun graphic as the cover and here are my thoughts on the latest tune.

Rating: 4.5/5

Though the wearers of the mighty Powerglove had emerged from their respective basements with another tune yesterday after toiling on the 64 Bit systems that propel their creativity; I felt that there was no better day to discuss the latest single “Kraid’s Lair” than on April Fool’s Day. The song continues the bands plans of issuing a new tune each and every month in their quest to not only please their ardent geek admirers but to also drive website outlets crazy by doing this piecemeal instead of a few at a time. Let’s get down to the brass tacks on this one.

The world around us has gotten far too serious and it’s been enough to make The Joker himself scratch his pasty white chin. You know what I’m talking about. The evening news is almost unwatchable and Facebook is a mess and let’s not even get started on what we see happening on Twitter. However the dark is leading us to some measure of light as those who wear “The Glove” are back and have powered up once more to offer us a brand new single with a new instrumental ditty “Kirby”. It’s been far too long between releases from their furious funster’s so I was damned glad to learn it was here and then indulge upon its controller melting melodies.

Music Luminaries Share Their New Year’s Metal Resolutions for 2012: Part 3

Hello again, it’s great that you are sticking with our New Year’s Metal Resolutions for 2012 Blog Series, and welcome to Wednesday or our “third times the charm edition”. As you have seen over the last couple of days posts, we posed the inquiry to a number of musical greats about what their resolutions might be as it relates to Metal or Music on the whole. I’ve loved what we got back from them and without any further adieu, please enjoy this chapter.

Stu Block (lead vocals for Iced Earth): My New Years Resolutions for 2012 is, to broaden my knowledge to the things that are happening in my country, politically and financially. Eat healthier and work out more.

Oliver Palotai (keyboards for Kamelot & Sons Of Seasons): My New Years Musical Resolution is to continue making good music and to further kick the mainstream in the ass!

Nick Avila (bassist for Powerglove): Powerglove’s New Years Metal resolution for 2012 is to overcome our Skyrim addictions, and write and record a new Video Game album for you. We are also exploring the logistics of building a Starburst cannon, setting up a Powerglove video game metal convention, touring Japan, and entering the world beard and moustache championships. Seeing as none of us currently have moustaches, we have our work cut out for us, but with a combination of Rogaine, miracle grow, and self determination, I believe we have a good shot at failure. Cheers to failure, and Happy New Year to you all!
