Happy Halloween, everyone!
We had a great time putting on a special Halloween themed show this week. As per MetalOxide tradition, we played a copius amount of Gothic metal, but not exclusively; we also threw in some other sufficiently dark songs. The Gothic metal we played included songs from E Nomine, Type O Negative, and ThouShaltNot. I was able to find some dark and creepy stuff from Iced Earth and Tyr, and we had to play a sing from Nevermore, on account of the amazing show they played on Friday night.
News was great tonight! We talked about Lordi's new drummer, Blind Guardian and Blackguard playing on 70000 Tons of Metal (you can see all of the other bands and see other information regarding the cruise at http://www.70000tons.com). We also mentioned that Gwar is playing a show at the Rave in Milwaukee on Halloween, and you can watch it live at webcast.therave.com. Also, Cradle of Filth announced their upcoming tour dates (blabbermouth.net). If you read closely you can see the best part..................Turisas is opening for them!! Yes, news was truly epic tonight.
