One of my friends sent me a link to his new metal band (my friend is Andrew the bass player) called Mercenary X. I think they sound great, so I thought I'd share with you guys who enjoy quality metal. :)

haha, great stuff!

There's some fun stuff in Photo Booth for iMac as well--you can easily paste yourself onto a background graphic such as the Eiffel Tower. Too fun!

It is amazing to see how technology progresses

There's even a function where your face is completely replaced with an animated avatar. Head, eye and mouth movements are mimicked in real-time by the avatar.
You could do this by hand be drawing in the arrow or the 'stache in pixels in each frame but that'll take a long time. Today's computers are able to do it real time.

Very cool, Mark! That would have taken considerable effort before without the software!

And now for something completely different

And now for something completely different ;-) Of course I am being totally non-serious here. Lack of wife - being in Egypt - does that to a person. I'll probably be wanting to take this down when I see this again. Ah well.

If your ear-drums have sustained any damage - I hereby apologise thoroughly
Do check out Mercenary X, it is a very good sounding band you guys! Your ear drums will definitely heal by listening to Mercenary X

Strong voices!

The singing voices are really good! They sound very very good. Often the singing voices with Metal or Progressive Rock bands are a let down. In this case far from it. Strong vibes!

They sound professional.

I admit I'm the wrong person to "judge" this group, since I'm not really a metal guy anymore (with rare exceptions and oldies), but this group's music sounds like the stuff the kids are listening to nowadays, which is probably a good thing, commercially. I could easily see these songs playing on a new-rock oriented radio station. They sound a bit like "King Diamond" with a hint of Iron Maiden, but perhaps more serious and jam-worthy. Just my opinion. "Darkness Descending" is a cool, agressive jam.
