Every now and then I like to step out of my comfort zone, in this case into very, very heavy metal. Anyone who listens to this show regularly knows I lean toward alt-rock, American Latino Music, singer/songwriter, folk, pop, rock and jazz rock. I am not a metal fan, but ever since I had the metal guitar genius Xander Demos on the show and he walked us through good metal, I keep my ears cocked for quality metal music. And when I find it, I put it on the show.
There is a segment of metal that lives in images and themes of over-the-top Halloween symbology and horror movies iconography, and is lots of fun. Solus Deus has taken that a step further. The horror imagery is there - and it is pretty camp - but the music is very skillful and it demands a careful listening. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but a lot of us don't drink tea and this fit perfectly. Tune in while we talk to a superb musician who can tickle our funny bones while letting us explore new parts of our ears if we take the time to listen. It will be fun.
