Wait A Minute! This Isn't Metal! - August 2020
by musclassia, RaduP | 12.09
We here at Metal Storm pride ourselves on our thousands of metal reviews and interviews and article; metal is our collective soul and passion, which is why we bother with this junk. That being said, we'd be lying if we stuck to our trve-kvlt guns and claimed that metal is the only thing we ever listen to. Whether we want to admit it or not, we do check out some other stuff from time to time; some of us are more poptimistic than others, but there's a whole world out there aside from Satan-worshiping black metal and dragon-slaying power metal.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Band Of Gypsys

It has now been 50 years since Hendrix's passing, in September of 1970. Several months prior, at the Fillmore East with Billy Cox and Buddy Miles, he recorded the now legendary Band Of Gypsys live album. In contrast to the heavier psychedelic rock approach of his earlier material, the music on Band Of Gypsys saw Hendrix embrace a much funkier approach, more free roaming and a lot groovier in its delivery. This is as good a hint of where the man's sound may have gone had he lived on if any, into more expansive territory oozing of soul and jazz influence. Give it a whirl and mourn the planned Hendrix/Miles Davis collaborative album that never was.

Rest In Power, Jimi.
