So the big, ginormous, colossal game today is Game 17 featuring the two powerhouses of the cricketing world- Afghanistan and Scotland! Seriously, they both have cricket teams! I know, right! Anyway, both teams have played two games and lost two games, so in today’s match someone is going to be picking up their first two points of the tournament! And if that is not getting you moist in the gusset to tune in towatch (Cthulhu knows what TV channels in the States are showing this, or any other cricket matches!) then I truly despair of you all!
GAME 17: AFGHANISTAN vs SCOTLAND
District Unknown are the only metal band featured on the metal-archives site and given the current turmoil, religiosity and so forth of the region, I’m actually surprised that there is a metal band in Afghanistan at all! The band call their music ‘Psychedelic Metal’ and it certainly has a more hard rock vibe than metal sound, in some places with the occasional nod to Incubus etc but all things considered, District Unknown are quite a good up and coming band.
In the past two years one-man act Saor has released two of my favourite albums of the past decade. One-man Atmospheric/Folk/Black Metal, you say? Count me the fuck in! Expansive, expressive, exhilarating, this is music to get the blood pumping through the veins and you climb the mountains and monroes of Alba whilst waitng for the Jacobites to come free the land 😉 Seriously, check this guy out, he is amazing.
PREDICTION: While both teams lost their first two matches, I feel that Afghanistan might just shade this one. Their bowling against Sri Lanka was immense and if they play with the same intensity then I fear for the Scottish batsmen, who have been quite anemic in the two games played. Musically, well that’s a different tale. Saor win this hands down.
