Heavy metal comedy
This article is from 2007.
Former drummer in death metal band Slaughter Lord, what Hughes means by ‘Heavy Metal Comedy’ is an outsider attitude and refusal to compromise (much like his heroes Slayer). This is hard-edged satire covering everything from Australia’s treatment of the Aborigines to the ludicrousness of the War on Terror. A passioned delivery, spiralling conspiracy theories and informed leaps of logic keep things interesting. (Henry Northmore)
