I like giving “Sunday Metal” a theme, and so this theme is “Songs of My Youth”. I found heavy metal as a teenager and it’s always been a big part of my life. I wanted to highlight some songs that stand out from those youthful days.
The Coup de Grace are probably still relatively unknown to most of you. They were a band out of the Minneapolis area, and I got to know of them because I had a good relationship with their record label, Red Decibel. Hooray days of college radio.
What I remember most was traveling to NYC for a music convention, where they happened to be playing on my birthday (or just around it; I honestly don’t recall the exact date). Getting to see the band, hang out with them, and party quite well with them, made for a great birthday present. I can remember a lot about that evening, but I just can’t retell it here. 🙂
