Yes, “Ladybaby” is weird. Japanese pop music mixed with heavy metal? WEIRD is an overstatement.

I guess the show was in 2010 & “Lamb of God’s” vocalist, Randy Blythe, was arrested in 2012?

Metal fans are happier than other music fans? While were on the topic, I think I’ll have a nap & fall asleep to “Lamb of God”, one of the few artists on iTunes that is still working properly. Didn’t nap because it’s SHARK WEEK! On Discovery!!!!!

A kid drumming along with “Dream Theater”? WOW!

I think “Marilyn Manson’s” 15 minutes of fame expired years ago. He’s a shock rocker. I’d take Rob Zombie over Marilyn Manson any day, but I guess it’s subjective in the end.

Clutch to release new album “Psychic Warfare” on October 2nd 2015!!!! No single yet, here’s the title song from their previous album.

Rock It Out Blog for Wednesday, July 8th

I found a Canadian support center for Apple. Their iTunes Match has been royally screwed up since the launch of their streaming site, Apple Music, on Tuesday, June 30th. Kim will call them after work. I called but they have trouble understanding me & they asked for a serial number I can’t get to? I got through in a matter of seconds, hopefully Kim will too. Hopefully it can be fixed or they will tell us how to delete our very cheap subscription & use home sharing. Seems as though many households are deleting their subscription. $27.99/year to leave your computer off & stream your music library through whatever 5 devices that are approved. As for Apple Music, it’s really more of a radio station. Shows hosted by celebrities & music for rent, you stop paying the monthly fee of $9.99, your music disappears. You don’t technically own it, you rent it. Just because I don’t want it doesn’t mean others don’t.

The new Finger Eleven album sounds like a return to their original sound. There are 3 songs available with a pre-order. The lead off single “Wolves & Doors” for me is the weakest track of the 3. “Five Crooked Lines” & “Gods of Speed” I find to be more towards their sound on the first 2 or 3 albums. Sorry, couldn’t find “Gods of Speed” with decent sound.

“Lamb of God’s” album sounds promising as well!

Songs I like. “Lenny Kravitz” 2 greatest hits albums
