Weather heads towards late(r) Autumn...there is a chill in the air - it's cold, Aussie cold. 17-18 degrees Celsius (you do the math for Fahrenheit, we are in Australia...and when in Rome...). There is a priest, or at least a man dressed as a priest. He is set to deliver a eulogy. The setting is a bluestone chapel. Inside, a man sitting at the organ is solemnly playing "Nookie". Outside is a graveyard. There is a freshly dug grave with a casket next to it. People are throwing in baggy shorts, a seven string guitar, a turntable, a tracksuit, and the like. Killswitch Engage's Alive Or Just Breathing is filling this cold night's air. What the hell are we talking about??? Actually, what we just described is going on in Australia this weekend, a burial showing a changing of the times. Metal is back, my friends. Look it straight in the face and let it kick you right in the ass. Snarl, then smile. Roadrunner Australia, being the clever 'punters' they are, organized the above event in honor of Killswitch Engage and their upcoming album. It's true. Invites were sent out, people loaded onto buses, buses which rode them asses to the funeral site of the 'yo-yo' style of rock...if ya know what we mean. And the people, they shall welcome the sounds they hear outside in the graveyard. For it is metal. And it has been missed. Food and drinks are served. Midgets, goats, and strippers were to be at the wake afterwards...but somewhere along the way that idea got nixed. Metal is back, my friends. Smile. Killswitch Engage Alive Or Just Breathing in stores May 21st see www.AliveOrJustBreathing.com for a taste of what is to come...
