Pic of the Week: Detonation

Haven’t done one of these in a while, so what the hell. This is Detonation, a Death/Thrash metal band out of the Netherlands.  They’re pretty rockin’, you can check’em out on Myspace at their page HERE.   Reminds me of a kindred band to Testament – not a bad thing, right?

But what’s with this press photo?  Everybody in the band is chillin’ with a brew, probably after a hard day spent recording, drinking, recording themselves drinking, thinking of reasons to be pissed off, writing lyrics about being pissed off, drinking  – you know, the usual shit for a Death metal band.  Everyone’s relaxing now. . .  except for workaholic Danny Tunker who can’t be bothered to put his guitar down even for a minute.  “Got to lay down one more track” he says flashing the devil horns and plinking off 1043 notes before anyone can breath.  Ok, so that’s how I imagined the conversation.  In reality, he’s probably afraid someone will steal his guitar if he sits it down.  Guitarists are like that sometimes.

But ole’ Danny has a bigger problem, ’cause there’s someone in his band with a waaaay cooler name than his.  A name that makes a bold statement, it just says – with a voice all it’s own  “Fuck you, I’m a rock star”.  I’m talking about the bassist (Far right in the photo), one Mr. Otto Schimmelpenninck.

See, I’m right.  Now YOU’RE jealous TOO and you ain’t even in the band!

  1. The next time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I imply, I know it was my choice to learn, but I truly thought youd have one thing attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you would fix in the event you werent too busy looking for attention.
