One of the first things I saw today is another fun cover song from Leo of Frog Leap Studios. It's always a good day when he posts one of his amazing metal covers of a pop song. He takes those silly pop things and turns them into something people would actually want to listen to!

Holy Grail Brought Lots of Shred to the Stache Wednesday Night [Video}

I'm a huge fan of metal and shred guitar playing. It's some of my favorite stuff to listen to, and it's always great to see a band that can really shred live.

But as I walked in, Holy Grail was setting up and getting ready to play.
