Nothing fancy here, just straight up, pure heavy metal that does what it says on the tin. These chaps have been around for quite some time, possibly longer than many people who may stumble across this this little blog post have been alive... It certainly has a "classic" metal feel with its driving guitars and pounding beat, and Mr. Dirkschneider's distinctive AC/DC-like vocals. It is perfect music to rock out to at work and it comes up quite often on music rotation on the production floor at

Music SIG Likes #24 :: Russian Circles · 1:54am Sep 7th, 2016

More of that yummy yummy post-rock instrumetal music!

Russian Circles is one of the big name bands in the Post-Metal genre along with the previously aforementioned Pelican. They tend more towards the blues/rock end of the spectrum (as opposed to the more metal/hard rock sound of Pelican). It still has the heavy post-metal guitars, but the tempo is more...laid back, almost contemplative even. Certainly has a different feel and texture, but an enjoyable listen all the same.

More delightfully crunchy steampunk and industrial folk (!) courtesy of all 'round good guy/gal Cynewulf. These guys are pretty much the ur-example of steampunk music and the unofficial "spokesband" of the genre.

It has been nearly 2 years, but thanks for the suggestion!

Electronic industrial style metal. Pure, plain and simple. Quite catchy with a strong beat and rhythm. Quite popular with many of our drivers at $WORK. Odds are if you live in *mumblemumble* county in Americaland, your postman (and women) are probably listening to this...

And now for something completely different.

Electro Swing. Glorious, delicious electro swing. Imagine if you will a delicious mashup of Daft Punk and Django Reinheart. I dare you to listen to it without dancing or tapping your feet.

I Have The Attention Span Of A Dried Trout · 5:59am Oct 13th, 2020

Right now, I’m struggling to get off my butt and write something, I even have an idea of a story, it’s just that I rather be playing games like Sam and Max and total warhammer. Maybe I’ll finally write something in the near future but as for now kids, don’t be like me. Write at every opportunity, don’t even write a blog about writing stories, just write it down. That’s all I got to say.

Music SIG Likes #9 :: Brother Dege · 3:10am Feb 29th, 2016

I learned about a new instrument recently: Dobro resonator guitar. It has a distinctive look ("guitar with a shield thingy on the front) a distincitve sound (about midway between an acoustic guitar and a banjo) and features prominently in many blues/bluegrass/country songs. Needless to say, it features prominently in Brother Dege's music what with the rhythmic blues/folk style with a smattering of mellow rock mixed in for taste.

Music SIG Likes #30 :: Poor Man's Poison · 3:02am Dec 11th, 2016

Some delightful folk and bluegrass this time around courtesy of Poor Man's Poison. One of my brothers introduced me to them recently. I am not usually one for this type of music (a bit too much country), but they have certainly grown on me. Mandolin is one of those instruments I enjoy listening to (another is dobro), and Poor Man's Poison has it in spades.

Update March 2017 · 6:05pm Mar 24th, 2017

Status update

So I've got good news and bad news. I'm going to start with the bad news first because there is alot.

So first off the military thing ended up not working out due to medical reasons so I'm simply going to college instead. I've got to balance that with my job as well so my free time will be strained. That's kind of irrelevant personal things so let me get into the main stuff.

Pirate Metal.

Pirate. Metal. Just take a moment to savour the delicious barminess.

Alsestorm is an interesting combination of power metal with folk metal elements mixed in all wrapped in bombastic pirate-themed theatrics. Never before did I imagine I would ever utter the phrase "heavy-metal accordion".

I also picked up this cute AF kitchen timer I could wind up and give my writing time a bit more structure. It's all in order to up my production rates for 2017.

Of course, being me, I'm working on TwiDean and not Dazzling Sunset... I'm such a professional.

Something new, apropos of nothing: some blog posts wherein I act my age and slap a bunch of self-indulgent stuff various musical bits and bobs I enjoy listening to up on a public blog post.

At the very least, I figure who reads this may (possibly) discover something new and exciting, or (more likely) have something to laugh at and poke with sticks.

Music SIG Likes #74 :: Infected Mushroom · 3:40am Apr 17th, 2018

This one is quite interesting (for me at least). One of Significant Other's co-workers introduced me to this particular group a few months past, and I must say I am quite impressed. Infected Mushroom is primarily a psychedelic trance group with some industrial elements mixed in. Quite interesting if you are into that sort of thing...

Music SIG Likes #16 :: Great Big Sea · 2:51am May 17th, 2016

Great Big Sea was a Canadian folk rock band who performed modern rock interpretations of traditional Canadian folk songs and sea shanties. They were one of the first folk bands I ever really listened to. Oddly enough, they were recommended to by a complete stranger who I struck up a conversation with in an airport restaurant of all places (hi David!).

"Someday Soon" is one of my all-time favourite songs.

More folk music!

I never heard of Slaid Cleaves before stumbling upon him through Pandora, but I am glad I did. Some of his works shades uncomfortably too close to country (:pinkiesick:), but overall, I enjoy his singing.

Some more of that delicious electro swing. Energetic, upbeat, and just plain fun to listen to (at least to my ears). You know that saying "Dance as though no one can see you"? That is me listening to this.

Music SIG Likes #12 :: Mark Knopfler · 2:26am Mar 24th, 2016

Some classic blues rock with a dash of country and a hint of Celtic rock mixed in for flavour. Mark's voice is absolutely delicious and the smooth guitar riffs are like sonic velvet. The one or two older chappies and chappettes who may stumble across this post are probably sagely nodding and saying "Finally! SIG has stumbled across some Good Taste!".

I am certainly glad I stumbled across and re-discovered him on Pandora.
