I think I overheard a stranger sum up the general feeling I have toward all the metal bands I've been hearing lately--at live shows, that is, which is how I prefer to listen to music. Recordings are so twentieth century. Anyway, this unknown-to-me nailed it. Here 'tis:
"Bah, this band is all 'ch-chunk chunk!' Where's the 'Meedly meedly meedly meeeee!!!' "?!
Nice. It also reminds me that I need to go check in on what Strongbad is up to these days.
