(doing the clap after every other word thing) STOP DRINKING A GALLON OF COFFEE AND THEN VOLUNTEERING FOR ASSIGNMENTS
Ahem. I filled in for Metal Injection’s usual #TBT columnist last week and used the opportunity to discuss a band that I chanced upon in high school and have been listening to semi-regularly ever since. Transcending Bizarre? is a great band and this is pretty much the only time I can think of to relevantly write about them. This is cliche and certainly applies to a lot of the metal stuff I write, but if you told me one decade ago that I’d be able to hype up this completely unknown music group for one of the web’s largest metal publications, I’d laugh you out the door.
I was also excited to be able to talk to Haris, who served as the band’s keyboardist, for the article. Loved the standout memory he shared with me. Haris, if you’re reading this, thanks for the quick turnaround and in-depth answers! You rock.
