Reason #4,080 why I've grown to love MySpace:
BLUTHAUCH! (emphasis mine, because, well, you kind of have to, right?)
He's a kid from somewhere in Germany that I'm now determined to make into a cult hero in the U.S. He requested my "friendship" today and of course I just couldn't turn him down -- not with a profile picture like the one to the left.
Needless to say, he's a musician -- making the kind of music that, in the grand tradition of German industrial death metal, sounds like Satan torturing Joseph Goebbels with a belt-sander and requires that he look at all times like the Dictionary of Goth-Metal clichés (circa 1989) just threw up on him.
In other words, he deserves to be huge here in the states. HUGE I tell you.
Do yourself a favor and go to his MySpace site and check out to the soon-to-be-worldwide-hit-single God and Suicide, as well as the incomparable Eingefroren.
Tell him Chez sent you.
And remember the name: BLUTHAUCH! (Say it out loud and watch your horses go fucking bananas.)
Now if we could just figure out a way to get him to go on tour with this guy, we'd be set.
