Metal Mondays

Good morning everyone, and welcome to yet another work week. If you're anything like me, it takes a 'mental army' to get you out of bed at the start of the week, and a veritable force of nature to keep you going during the day (read: my new creation, teaffee). Hence, why on Monday, I usually listen to something pretty heavy.

Today, we're talking about Doomriders. I found these guys when poking around the history of one of my favorite prog bands, Cave In. Cave was the sort of group who loved playing together, but was also very understanding of side projects. Playing with members of Converge, Piebald and others, Cave In was a band who traveled the Boston scene quite well.

A few years back, Cave In went on permanent hiatus, which allowed the already exploratory group to branch out into many new sideprojects. One of these was the Doomriders, formed of an old Cave In guitarist turned bassist, and an old Converge bassist turned guitarist.

I know... I'm confused too. That's why it's Monday. That's why I'm just going to shut up and let you watch this video. The quality's not great, so I urge you to check out this track (Black Thunder) on their myspace.

-I'll pour out my soul to anyone who'll listen, but always seem to turn to you.
