Quickies: ZTV! Also, Enslaved are in the studio…

The baseball playoffs have started and the only reason I care is because Puig Destroyer is suddenly more entertaining to me. Because timely.

Anybody else super excited about all the Ziltoid and Devin Townsend happenings? Of course you are.

Quickies: May 19, 2014

Today’s edition of Quickies marks our 50th (!) entry on the Horns Up blog. Would have been fun to commemorate this occasion with a post outside a category that we give you every single day, but frankly, I’m still a bit amazed that we’ve kept this thing going as long as we have, so I won’t complain too much. Lots to cover in today’s Quickies, so let’s not waste any more time. Here’s what we missed today:

A lot of people weren’t all that nuts over the title track, but this one’s gotten a better reception thus far. (I’d have to go with the reverse, personally.) Anyway, that’ll do it for this edition. Check back tomorrow for more from Horns Up!

Saturday Side-Splitter: “Slipknot Shreds”

Happy 39th birthday, Joey Jordison! In celebration, let’s poke some fun at the band that the Scar the Martyr drummer used to provide 100% of the talent for–Slipknot! To that end, we present…Slipknot Shreds!

To be fair, I never hated the ‘Knot as much as a lot of people do (or as much as I probably should), and I guess Mick Thomson and Jim Root do know a thing or two on guitar, but still…after the murky circumstances surrounding Jordison’s departure from the band, I don’t really feel too guilty poking a bit of fun at them. Particularly when said fun-poking is as hilarious as this video.
