Recently I worked for three months to get an interview with a very legendary progressive metal band. I’m not going to mention the band outright, but lets just say they have sold around 40 million albums over a 40 year career.
In an official statement Diminished Fifth Records owner/founder Josh Hogan announced the label will be closing it’s doors in the coming months. Based out of Eastern Canada, D5R was one of the first labels We Love Metal ever worked with. The quality this small independent managed to put out was staggering.
A couple of weeks ago I supported an argument that Christian metal was every bit a sub-genre as death metal, folk metal, thrash, or any other. Well, not thrash. Nothing is close to that.
Ozzy Osbourne and Randy Rhoads side by side is heavy metal. Spilling half of your 6 dollar beer on your denim jacket with patches because Sebastian Bach just hit that note and you can’t contain yourself is heavy metal.
