Wait A Minute! This Isn't Metal! - April 2019

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. This article series is the place for those artists who don't matter to metal in the slightest (more or less) but still warrant some conversation - after all, good music, is good music, and we all know metal isn't the only thing on this planet for any of us.

However you look at it, the two bands are a good match - let's face it, they go together like a pair of colourful mittens and are the very definition of rocking your socks off.
