Springtime/Sunshine Grill Tunes

The weather's getting nicer, I'm slowly adding ice to my coffees and my pants are getting shorter by the day: Spring's here. While the weather's been a bit bipolar here in NYC (get it!?) I sense it's only a matter of time before I'm up to my knees in cans and hotdog bun wrappers. While I'm not shelving my black metal entirely, I feel it's time to show off some essential Spring to Summer listening.

Without further adieu, here are some albums to get spinnin' while you grill.

Anthrax - Among the Living
Maybe my favorite thrash album of all time. There's tons to sing along to and it's just plain fun.

 Danzig- I 


Perfect party music, "She Rides" and "Twist of Cain" are my jukebox favorites, they'll fit in outside too.

 Darkthrone - A Blaze in the Northern Sky

I know you're saying "black metal on a sunny day, HUH!?" but ABITNS has the awesome backbeat and groove of "Dethroned Emperor" Celtic Frost with some seriously great riffs.

 Graf Orlock - Destination Time: Yesterday

Summer actionflicks mixed with rhythmically diverse grindcore is exactly what that kilbasa needs.

Insect Warfare - World Extermination

Energetic, perfectly constructed and devastatingly heavy, World Extermination makes for a good time.

Mercyful Fate - Don't Break the Oath
DBTO is full of headbangability and is a bit thrashier than the immaculate Melissa; "Welcome Princess of Hell" and "Nightmare" emphasize this perfectly.

Motorhead- No Sleep 'til Hammersmith

Only thing better then this would be Lemmy and co. 
sharing a brew with you and playing a gig
 for all your dumb friends. 
No Sleep 'til Hammersmith is Motorhead at their best.


Repulsion - Horrified

              Nothing happy about this, but  Scott's delivery and the simplistic headbanging riffs make this perfect grill side music.

Wehrmacht - Biermacht

Upbeat, fun, and energetic, this was Wehrmacht's crowning achievement. The best crossover album around.
