Celebrate 7-8 with Traci Lords

Happy 7/8!

One of my favorite songs totally in 7/8 is titled "Good N Evil" on Traci Lords "1000 Fires" electronica CD. Here is a sample of the whole album and this oddness is located 1:00 - 1:27.

Cool CD cover eh?

Keepin' it ODD,

Omen - The Axeman, old skool power metal with a bit of 5

This spring I had the great honor of playing some dates (bass) in Europe with Leather Leone's new project SledgeLeather. We played with many old skool power metal bands almost everything was in 4, but it prompted me to dig some more.
And this is what I found:

Right on Omen! with some 5 in the verse. They are still kickin' it live in Europe too. Old Skool power metal is not known for odd meter use, but one slips in every now and then and when it does... its time to bow down to the axeman!
