I'm a few days late on my usual Friday music post, partially because of Blogger's giant fail last week and partially because it lined up with a date of memorial. A year ago today, one of the Godfathers of heavy metal when up to the big Rainbow in the sky. Pay your respects by throwing up the metal horns and/or watching this video (skip to the 1 minute mark if you don't care for Ritchie Blackmore's intro guitar solo!)
For anyone else who's into this kind of music, I highly recommend taking a listen to Graveyard. It's total Sabbath-era metal done by young Swedish dudes. Pure amazingness.
