Got the Leaves´ Eyes five track EP titled “Fires In The North” in the mail a few days ago. Introduces new singer Elina Siirala, and I still like the band very much.

Looks like they are OK to me.

Great cover.

Barbarian Lover

Echoes of Jean M. Auel here, but quite good enough to sustain itself. “Barbarian Lover” (Ruby Dixon, 2015) is the third book in the Ice Planet Barbarians series. I think there is about 11 in all. Not sure what to call this scene, but it is pretty hot.

Not that there is anything wrong with that…

Nice Walking Dead cover

TV Guide (November 21 2016 issue). The Walking Dead are back and that is a good thing. Interestingly, a lot of dead people registered to vote a few weeks ago. I would just love to know a tad more about that…

I will buy this on DVD later on.

Freewheel Burning

Added the Special 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of Judas Priest´s “Defenders of the Faith” to the old collection the other day. The original album came out back in January 1984 and it has aged like a fine wine. In fact, it sounds terrific. Opening track “Freewheel Burning” was an instant Heavy Metal classic back in the day and still feels like a stampede on your brain. Nice bonus comes in the shape of a full concert over two CDs, recorded at Long Beach Arena in May 1984.

I have very good memories seeing these lads in the 80s.

Excellent Clausewitz Spezial from Germany, Deutsches Afrikakorps 1941-1943.

Kept me busy for hours.
