Throwback Thursday: Grinder (ft. Darren McCarty)

Alright, so for those that may not yet be aware, I leave Friday afternoon for Hockeytown, USA — known to most others as Detroit, MI. It has become an annual occurrence that I see my (admittedly mediocre) Detroit Red Wings play a game at home — at the decrepit yet adored Joe Louis Arena. Regardless of the current NHL Eastern Conference standings or the city of Detroit, I have chosen to take advantage of this week’s Throwback and link two of my favorite things: metal (or I guess hard rock in this case) and hockey. And by hockey I mean the Red Wings. You see, one of my favorite players of all time, and one of the game’s most popular enforcers, was one Darren McCarty.

Alright, so for those somehow unaware, I’m off to Detroit less than 24 hours from now. Finally, for the first time in my life, I’ll be watching my beloved Detroit Red Wings on their home ice at Joe Louis Arena, rather than among enemies at the TD Bank Garden in Boston or some shit. That in mind, I wanted to try and uncover an awesome metal band from the same metropolitan area to share for today’s #tbt. That proved difficult. So, I expanded my search to the entire state of Michigan, and…still didn’t find much. Eventually I stumbled on The Black Dahlia Murder, a melodic death metal band I no longer follow, but one that managed to put out some pretty entertaining shit that I used to spin on a regular basis back in the day.
