My new pair of white jeans got broken in today courtesy of the ass-kicking band you see here. The seating took a beating but it was well worth it. And while my trusty crocs aren’t ideal for mosh-pitting, I’m glad I wore them, because my teeth would be tangled in laces after such a jaw-dropping performance.
I’ve been a satisfied customer of Ian Steale and his family’s bank my whole life. For the past 20 years, he’s been President of Steale Reserve Savings, and he’s always been straight business... I had no idea that he had a wild side in him.
I’m guessing he took out a serious tone-loan, because this guy has a wealth of solid gold hits sitting in his riff bank... You don’t just earn credit when you walk out on stage with an Bass-modified Epi Gibby, you get 100% interest too. If I put all of the music Ian played today on my Zune, it would be packed with so many heavy jams, I would need a forklift to pick it up off the ground.
You guys know I love metal/heavy metal/Nëw metal... that’s nothing new. But I’m assuming you all are just as surprised as me to see Ian ditching the suit and tie we always see him in for some serious shred threads.... you would’ve never thought he was able to hurl such heavy riffs, until he put his music muscles on display with some sleeve-free fashion. His band is not just a solid Pantera tribute act... it’s a release of the anger he keeps locked in the vault at his day job. The aptly named “Ian Venting the Steale” is a storm of emotions. It is a force of nature, so it makes sense that local weatherman Skeet Pasbin would be brought on as drummer to deliver the thunder he promised on today’s forecast.
That was without a doubt one of the heaviest happy hours The Chug Suckle has ever hosted. Might have to lift my boycott of The Pooge to catch them with some of the other Pantera tribute acts in the area next week. Thank you Ian... I hope that show was just as much of a therapeutic release for as it was a thunderous display of power.
