The ABC’s of Music #1 – A is for Aaron Spectre and more…

Welcome to a new series of posts, one where I alphabetically ramble about all the different music I like. I like quite a few things, so this may take several years, but oh well!

I warn you now, some of the bands that’ll be featured here are going to be extremely NSFW. I leave it to your common sense to determine which is which, but I’d like to think that you can figure out on your own that you probably shouldn’t press play to something with a title like Infant Annihilator while at work or in front of your elderly parents. It’s not all going to be stuff like that, but there will be a pretty healthy (unhealthy?) dose mixed in there, so WATCH OUT!

Just to be extra clear in that regard, I DO NOT share the beliefs or opinions of many, if any, bands that will be featured over the course of this. I do not endorse cannibalism, Satanism, misogyny, vampirism, or any other such thing that some of the more gruesome bands I like might sing about. To be honest, some of this stuff I can’t even read the lyrics to because it’s too gross even for me, but I haven’t really gone out of my way to read the lyrics to a song since high school. I’m just there for the good music and usually the stuff with the most graphic lyrics is the stuff whose vocals are completely incomprehensible anyway.

So anyway, maybe you’ll end up learning about some great new bands here or maybe you’ll end up un-following me because of some of the disgusting filth I listen to, but either way, I’M NOT GONNA STOP!

Now, let’s begin with…

A is for Aaron Spectre!

The Well-Red Mage

I bought one of the first Nintendo systems and brought that home, and we were playing ‘Legend of Zelda’ at the time, and it was addicting, and I was playing it for hours and hours and hours.

It’s Day 4 of our Console Challenge, NPCs, and today is going to be a real treat.

When I first began recruiting for participants for this month-long event, reaching out to those I personally felt were best suited to the consoles which remained after our team of mages had their lion’s share, I decided to contact the renown Richenbaum Fotchenstein (Duke a la Von Mister… just kidding, I made that up). Richenbaum’s first response after looking over the roster was “Has nobody really picked the NES yet?” That was when I knew this person had to be a part of this project.

The NES is one of the most influential home…
