This episode features an interview with Powerglove. Who is Powerglove? Powerglove is an instrumental-only power metal band, which is named after the Power Glove, a NES controller accessory.
The band was started as a side project of the members various other bands. A melodic death metal band all the members were in disbanded, and the group decided to further develop Powerglove. The band’s first recording was “Dr. Wily’s Theme” from Mega Man 2 in early 2003, which was followed by “Storm Eagle” from Mega Man X and the theme from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
The band records their music in various locations and mixes them in a home studio. The band recorded and released its debut EP, Total Pwnage, in 2005 (later re-released in 2008). Over the following two years, the band arranged and recorded what would become their debut, full-length album, Metal Kombat for the Mortal Man. The album met positive reviews. Throughout 2008, following the release of Metal Kombat for the Mortal Man, the band had found its way into many publications, such as Game Informer, Metal Hammer, and Gamepro, including interviews with the band members and album reviews.

Country Music can be a stale genre at times. There are a lot of artists that sound the same, that’s why it’s always refreshing to hear a unique voice. On this episode of the podcast, I talked to artist Doreen Taylor. Here’s an excerpt from her website:
“Doreen is an award winning singer and actress, but she has also received critical acclaim as one of the best young songwriting talents in the industry with not only captivating melodies, but extremely expressive lyrics that strongly explore boundless depths of her heart and soul. Doreen is best characterized as an eclectic talent with popular musical influences like Shania Twain, Faith Hill, Martina McBride, Jo Dee Messina, Gretchen Wilson, Bon Jovi, Celine Dion, Heart, Patti LaBelle, Linda Ronstadt and yes… even Britney Spears. Her music blurs styles and crosses formats, yet she fuses everything together in an ingenious, effortless way.”
Doreen has a great album out called Magic, which you can purchase through iTunes, CDBaby, and various other outlets. She is about to start touring in support of that album as well. So we talked about that, what it’s like being unique, her musical influences, and other things happening in her life. Find out how this former operatic singer who’s into Tool and doesn’t have an iPod should be in your life today.
