Chess and Metal

Nov 14, 2008, 7:00 PM |

Hello all you nutty chess heads. I my self am a metal head. Metal relaxes me; As I'm sure that chess probably relaxes some of you. Long days at work; bad drive home; fight with the wife; throw in some Five Finger death punch, and let all the aggressions out. I know that most of you are the deep thinking type, and being the deep thinkers that you are; if you have never checked out Tool then your missing out. I suggest starting with the first L.P., and going from there. Mayndard sure knows how to get you thinking. Oh, and the music is great.

list of albums for Tools: Opium; Undertow; Aenema (yes that's how it's spelled) Lateralus, and 10,000 days. All great albums. If you Cheeks should ever check these out, (I doubt you will) and you like them; you should check out any album from A Perfect Circle, and as well Puscifer. All fronted by Maynard James Keenan. Props! Very smart man. 

No, this has nothing much to do with chess other then the fact that Metal music relaxes me like chess relaxes you.

If you check out tool; let me know what you think. Also, if you want; challenge me to a game. I don't care how bad you might beat me; It will help me learn.
