GonzoGeek Staff Summer Jams: Chris

  It’s summertime already down here in Houston, and I’ve risen to the heat by compiling a Summer 2013 playlist. There’s some new stuff. Some medium-old stuff. And some ancient stuff. Regardless of age, however, each song stands on its own as a great summer-themed (to me) anthem. Even more spectacularly, their arc, played from beginning to end, roughly corresponds to the arc of any number of my 3-month breaks from school back when. And after all, summer really is for the k...

Melvins: 30th Anniversary Tour, Covers Album, Maryland Deathfest

The Melvins celebrate their 30th anniversary with an extensive North American tour, kicking off July 12 in Phoenix, Ariz. “Has it really only been 30 years?” asked singer/guitar player Buzz Osborne. “Dang! Thanks to everyone who’s been there for us! It’s been an exciting trip and I probably should have listened and learned more. I apologize for anything I’ve ever done wrong and for anything I’m going to do wrong… Ha!” ‘Everybody Love...

The Future of Slayer...and The Big Four

In the wake of the untimely and sad passing of Jeff Hanneman; the question begs to be asked as to what is the future of SLAYER?  And for that matter; what is the future of the Big Four of American Thrash?  I find it interesting and disturbing that out of all the surviving original SLAYER members; that only estranged drummer, Dave Lombardo, has made any public comments.  I hope that Tom and Kerry will have something to say on the matter soon.  I also hope that they will have e...

Long Live Jeff Hanneman

I’m pretty sure it’s still too soon for me to write this, but I can’t put it off; reminded anew of the foolishness of putting anything off. I saw Slayer more times than I can easily remember, though nowhere near as many times as some of my more devoted brothers. Appropriately enough, given the brotherhood within both the band and the metal community as a whole, almost all of my most vivid memories of Slayer, and through them Jeff Hanneman, are shared with others. There was th...
