METAL MONDAY: Beating the Ghost of a Dead Horse: Sex & Religion in a Post DTP World

I guess to some attentive people, Transcendence was an obvious sign of the end-times. The third album was in excess of the original intended four for Devin Townsend Project (making it the seventh down the line), and the notorious sonic tyrant decided to let the Project half in on the writing process, as if they were some kind of band. My pattern-assigning monkey brain is telling me even the title was a clue. Fortunately, I am not some attentive people, so I'm just figuring this out now for your amusement.

METAL MONDAY: Heavy Metal Book Club: “What Does This Button Do?” Bruce Dickinson, An Autobiography

*Find out how to win a copy of this book at the end of this review!*

I'm never one to turn away a good music-related auto/biography. Just as with music documentaries, most are surprising and sometimes, surprisingly edifying. Bruce Dickinson, of Iron Maiden fame, has entered the fray with his autobiography, and I'm pleased to say it ticks both boxes, despite being quite the strange creature.
