Every once in a while, a music post which is truly, spectacularly amazing bubbles up from the depths of Reddit. Today, it is this gem of a cell phone video, posted by a Redditor named Live_Positive, who shared with the world what happened when he requested a bar band called Brothers Luis to play DragonForce's power metal epic, "Through The Fire and Flames". And while we all know that one person who will inevitably make an inebriated request such as this, it is rare that the performers pull it off so well. Seriously, Brothers Luis, whomever and where ever you are, please record this cover and release it.
And props to Live_Positive for upping the difficulty, instead of just shouting "Play Freebird!" as so many in his shoes have done before.

Song Review - The Heavy "Short Change Hero" or the Answer to the Question "What is the Name of the Song at The Beginning of Borderlands 2?"
The highly anticipated video game Borderlands 2 dropped today, but what was I was most interested in hearing from it was if a relatively obscure song would accompany the game's opening cinematics in the same fashion which Cage the Elephant's "Ain't No Rest For The Wicked" did with the original Borderlands. I was not disappointed, as Gearbox Software has put another fantastic song into the ears of an audience who likely never heard it before.

YouTube guitarist extraordinaire 331Erock does it again, transforming PSY's worldwide viral sensation "Gangnam Style" into a headbanging good time. Actually, he has really upped his game with this one.

This is a very sincere thank you note to each and every one of you who have taken the time to visit, read and listen to my musings on music. August 31st marked one full year of consecutive month-to-month growth for this little blog, and for that I am deeply humbled and so very appreciative of your interest and feedback.
What's great is, you seem to equally enjoy articles on huge names like Iron Maiden as much as profiles and album reviews of sounds unheard from untapped talent. In short, you have excellent taste and an inquisitive ear.
I really am at a bit of a losfer words here, so please know that this thank you goes to 11!
