Tuesday Trivia: The longest Metal songs ever

So it’s that time again, it’s the weekly feature, Tuesday Trivia, which, erm, we haven’t actually done in a couple of weeks now. Apologies about that, but we are all regular guys, with day jobs, and we’ve all been super busy recently (did I just say super busy? Ugh never mind). But what do you care? I know, I need to stop babbling.

So what’s this week’s Tuesday Trivia on? Well, Metal as a general rule, is an ambitious genre and bands are always trying to out do eachother. Metal also doesn’t confine itself to “rules” and if they want to write a song that’s longer than the average length (which is 3:30 for those interested), then they’ll damn well do it. So, with that in mind, this week’s Trivia is about the longest Metal tracks.

Make the jump for the longest article ever (just kidding, it’s not that long).


Weekly Dose of Metal: Edge of Sanity

Opeth fans, you need to check out Edge of Sanity, if you haven’t already.

Edge of Sanity was a Swedish Progressive Death Metal band, a lot of like Opeth. The band released the, now classic, Purgatory Afterglow album back in 1994 and it broke a lot of barriers in the Death Metal genre.

Album opener ‘Twilight’ may start like something camper than a Backstreet Boys song, but stay with it, I promise it will kick your ass. Seriously though, the song is brilliant, and the introduction much like the work of Opeth, with a very prominent Pink Floyd influence.

Yeah, but enough chitter-shatter, check out the song below, or I’ll eat your mom out.


17 years ago seems so far away

17 years ago, Pantera’s Far Beyond Driven went to #1 on the US Billboard 200 charts. Currently on #1 on said charts is Adele and I have absolutely no idea who that is but I think it’s safe to say, they (or she?) aren’t metal (it’s worth noticing that the Foo Fighters are on #2 and I absolutely view that as a great thing).

17 years ago, even Kurt Cobain was blown away by the sheer amount of quality metal albums that were released that year. In the year of 1994, many great (and now legendary) albums were released. Make the jump to see the highlights of 1994.
