    From wikipedia: "Doom metal is an extreme form of heavy metal music that typically uses slower tempos, low-tuned guitars and a much "thicker" or "heavier" sound than other metal genres" I didn't know there was a band called Masters of Reality! I was referring to the Black Sabbath Album, Master of Reality (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRKGKXL1seE) --------------------------------------------------- No Substitutions Please.

    Pallbearer really captures the early Sabbath sound as far as the riffing goes. Even the vox sound like a mix between Geddy Lee and Ozzy. Thanks for the response! --------------------------------------------------- No Substitutions Please.

    Really? Doom metal is alot more subdued than Thrash, Death, or Black Metal, which are much more cacophonic, agressive and dissonant. Black Sabbath is often classified as the first doom metal band. Doom is characterized by the slow tempo and the monumental riffage. But hey to each his own! Thanks for the input! --------------------------------------------------- No Substitutions Please.

    The following is completely unrelated to hockey. I know this is a hockey blog and all but I figured, what with the slow news/no news these days, that I would start posting a record I like every monday evening, a sort of album of the week, with the intentions of directing your ears to something new/different/interesting. I'm a huge music nerd and there's nothing I love more than sharing the music I enjoy. Leave feedback! Let me know if you guys love it or hate it, and make recommendations of your own! Now, Listen to PALLBEARER. Pallbearer is a traditional doom metal band from Arkansas. Their album Sorrow and Extinction is a 5 track opus with some of the heaviest, most crushing riffs I've heard this side of Master of Reality. Strap yourselves in for this one, it's heavier than Virginia Woolf at the bottom the Ouse. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBJfHuyGpsI --------------------------------------------------- No Substitutions Please.

    So the other day i was playing some NHL '14 with my buddy (on my nifty neat-o PS3), and we picked the Sens because, unlike real life, they have an awesome team in the game. While editing lines, we came upon a photo of Mika Zibanejad. My girlfriend, in the room, sees him and says he looks way more like a soccer player than a hockey player. Me and my buddy just glanced at each other and burst out laughing. --------------------------------------------------- No Substitutions Please.

    In beginning to worry.... we need a tough bastard before the season starts. If we leave it all up to Prusty, he'll do well, but he'll run our of juice eventually. My apologies to all you pacifist hockey monks who see this as sacrilege .
