From the same surreal corner of the rock and roll psyche that gave us “Hoogie Boogie Land” comes this, the “…Shreds” series, in which rockin’ solos from the world’s rockin’-est guitar heroes are made still more, um, rockin’, through creative overdubbing.
That, and the awesome power of shredding.
Warning: These videos are so dementedly hilarious they could have only come from Finland, what with that country’s long, dark winters, heavy vodka consumption and utter compulsion to rock.
Don’t believe us? Check out “Iron Maiden Shreds” and see for yourself. (Make sure you wait until about the two-minute mark.)
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
