I’ll admit it, I used to be a Hot Topic kid. For a summer. Then I grew up. I never looked back. Something that I knew about at Hot Topic stores but never personally witnessed were live concerts. Often times it was touring bands who would stop in and do a quick acoustic set followed by an autograph session where you had to buy a CD, not bring one in, to get it signed. But sometimes it was something different, something a bit more surreal, a bit more…local.
Such was the case with ORCumentary, a one-man project that performs “Orc Rock”. Below is footage of his song “Blood”, which is performed at one of these Hot Topic in-store concerts. I wasn’t able to make it past the first verse without laughing hysterically and shutting off the video.
And THAT’S why I wanted to share this with you readers. It’s bright and early on a Monday morning and I figure that everyone could use a good, solid laugh to start off their week. So, if you decide to watch the video below, I want you to think about the worst concert experience you’ve ever had and share it with me in the comments! READ MORE
Okay people, would you pay $8.99 for 48 tracks over three CD’s? The answer had better be a resounding “YES!” because Metal For The Masses Vol. 9 is full of amazing metal goodness that you should keep you headbanging for weeks! The compilation will be available at all Hot Topic retail stores as well as their website and features music from Century Media Records and Nuclear Blast artists (who both incidentally have some of my favorite bands signed).
