Joshua Radin’s plans for Valentines Day

Buzznet: Any specific plans for Valentines Day this year? If so who are you spending it with and where?

Joshua: I plan on watching “Harold and Maude” with the girl I am currently dating at my house, under a blanket, while a fire burns in the fireplace.

History of metal: 1976 – Judas Priest eclipses Black Sabbath

From their first release in 1970 to Sabotage in 1975, Black Sabbath were the undisputed kings of heavy metal.  That label became disputed in 1976 when Judas Priest released an album that was far superior in every way to Black Sabbath’s offering of the same year. [Cut = Read more...]

Judas Priest’s Sad Wings of Destiny marked a major leap forward for not only the band, but the entire heavy metal genre.  Featuring epic song structures, fast guitars, and awesome high pitched wails by Rob Halford, the album continues to influence bands to this day.  Completely gone were the blues influence of Black Sabbath’s music, and left in its place was heavy metal in its purest form.  From older bands like Iron Maiden to current bands like DragonForce, the influence of this album can be heard.

Meanwhile, Black Sabbath released an album that clearly marked them as a band on the way out.  Technical Ecstasy was easily the band’s worst album to that point.  It displayed a clear lack of focus due primarily to internal struggles which saw both Geezer Butler and Ozzy Osbourne leave the band for short periods of time.  The songs are inconsistent and lack the heaviness of prior albums.  It was during this time that Ozzy began attempting to to establish his own band, whom would become famous in later years.

Therefore, 1976 was both a good and bad year for metal.  1977 would prove to be the start of a new wave.
