I think much faster than I can type.
I'll try my best - and I'll try to keep it short, too…
Basically, this blog runs on whatever record has got me stoked at the moment - it's not about the newest release or latest leak.
It's just me & my loaded-to-the-hilt HD, many of the times shuffling away on random while I'm perusing the interwebs, and then THAT MOMENT HAPPENS - something I forgot I had pops up, or it's something I downloaded but it went lost in the shuffle, or something subliminally triggers a memory, etc. Usually a post is inspired this way, other times it's a cool band photo found online that gets me to tweaking it out in Photoshop that does it as well.
Anyways, I can't believe it's been three years since the Lo-Res Viscera became my obsession.
It's interesting for me personally to look back through the archives and see how my tastes have changed over the years, and while there have been times that I've wanted to pack it in, I guess I really didn't want to call it quits because the L-R V is an outlet that I have grown to be dependent upon as far as sharing music & stories w/ you like-minded peeps who dig the same kind of aural insanity that I do. I've made some cool online (and sometimes in real life) friendships & contacts through this blog, and if you yourself haven't ever given music blogging a try GO FOR IT. I've been inspired by many over the years - all the blogs you see in the right sidebar I can honestly say are linked here because they all carry some sort of inspiration forth for me, so please check them out if you haven't already.
THANKS FOR VISITING/COMMENTING/DOWNLOADING/SHARING YOUR THOUGHTS & STORIES WITH ME. I LOOK FORWARD TO THE FUTURE OF THE L-R V - COME ALONG FOR THE RIDE.
Okay, let's get back to the music, shall we..?
Been holding on to this one for a bit, and while it might not be the best overall sound-quality - it's a bootleg, remember? - the history of these recordings more than makes up for that - it's The Good King, okay?
Mercyful Fate are one of the all-time greats, and here's a glimpse into their early days.
While at times a bit sloppy, and sometimes a bit punkier-than-they-are-heavy, these recordings a treat for the Mercyful Fate / King Diamond fan.
