The Metal Asylum

The Metal Asylum: 8/8/12

Friday, August 24

Saturday was Backwards Day at the Metal Asylum! I have a slightly predictable habit of playing thrashy, punky, old-school metal towards the beginning of the show, then a little bit of death, ending with a transition to black metal or doom/sludge. Then, I typically leave the studio at 2 in a doom-y daze, blinded by sunlight as I exit Chicken Shack, gorge on Dynamo Donuts, and scoot home to take a nap. BO-RING! In the spirit of shaking things up, I reversed the typical playlist, and boy oh boy, I was PUMPED for the rest of the day.

Also. I have also re-fallen in love with Metallica. They’ve always been dear, but after their unforgettable spectacle at Outside Lands (8/11), I have been waking up every morning with a medley of Kill ‘Em All tunes whirling around in my head. My friend Andrea snapped this pic from the Snake Pit during the show. This is now my happy place.

Me and James.
