Just realized it’s been over two months since I’ve made a blog post to this thing. And I know some great albums have been getting me through some stressful months. But I just haven’t had a chance to review them properly – in a nicely formatted blog post.
My other sanity saver has been my zen part time job shelving books at the public library. It was here that I found this in the children’s section:
The title of the book caught my eye because of my past ties to The Chasm. I must say, this is quite a metal dinosaur. Spikes, armor plates – yep, definitely a death metal dinosaur.
Perhaps I was reminded because of the post of the reissue deal that Daniel Corchado has made to get their last album out to a wider market share that brought them to mind, but even without that, I’m sure I would have been reminded of the good times I shared hanging out with The Chasm, selling and pushing their great death metal chops, and the time I shall not regret being “Julia”, the first wife of Julio Viterbo, a guitar virtuoso in his own right. You never know what things will remind you of the past – good or bad. In this case, I think it is a perfect dinosaur that shares its name (sort of) with a great band.
