I Love Metal?

Well not love. You see in general I think metal is awful. Sure I like Sepultura and Slayer. I've definatly thrown some horns up at a Deftones show. I've for sure gotten my jollies listening to Sabbath. But recently my metal fun has been few and far between.

That was until the past few months. Since I picked it up back in Novemeber I've fallen asleep to the durgy drone of Sunn 0)))'s Black One more times than I can count. And more significant I've internalized, memorized, and mulled over Boris's amazing grinding variety pack of a metal album Pink more than any other album released this year.

Today Pitchfork Media (who've been kind enough to legitimize my metal jonze over the past few months) announced the wonderful
news that Boris would be touring the U.S.! Want More? (yes) They'll be doing some of this touring with Sunn 0)))!!!!! Excited! (yes)Pumped!! I am!!!! Or at least I was til I noticed that this tour will not be darkening my city or even my tri-state area. I'm a New York elitist! I'm not used to this kind of treatment.

So until these bands decide to book a date somewhere in my radius I have little to look forward to. Accept for the sure to be fan-effing-tastic Sunn 0)))/Boris collaborative album(coming this fall). You take what you can get I s'pose.
