Here is a bit of history. When Babymetal toured the States in 2016 Rob Zombie voiced his love for them in public and this caused a bit of a stir among the uneducated – when his fans went after him (and Babymetal) on his Facebook page, he blasted them big time defending the new phenomenon. When he shared a stage with them at the Northern Invasion Festival on May 14 that year journalist 93X Pablo interviewed him about his movies and his music, and he managed to get Rob to talk about Babymetal as well towards the end of the interview. I have a lot of respect for Rob, he is the Tarantino of Metal, and he digs Babymetal!

Watch the interview here. Babymetal clip from Northern Invasion here. Watch them command that audience to jump!

The debut album from Auri is out today. Nightwish men Tuomas Holopainen and Troy Donnockley has teamed up with singer Johanna Kurkela for this musical entity. Described jokingly as Rabbit Hole Music or Celestial Metal, the Soundtrack here is on the more beautiful side. A tour is not planned (Nightwish is out there right now) but they all hope that this will be a long standing project.

Check out “The Space Between” video here.

This looks like a good read. UK publication Military Modelling (March 2018). I wonder if the John Wayne inspired Jeep build comes from the 1962 movie “The Longest Day”?

The new Axel Rudi Pell album “Knights Call” is released tomorrow and I can see that he is lucky enough to have 220 Volt opening for him in Sweden in May.

Dave Berg

Added this mega Dave Berg book to the old collection this week. I grew up with MAD and I always enjoyed Dave Berg. “Five Decades of The Lighter Side of…” (Running Press Adult, 2013) is one hell of a celebration of the old days and I absolutely love this. 272 pages.
