This Week Inside the Vortx – Metal AF


This week the Vortx will deliver a headbanging show with Black Sabbath, Motörhead and Anthrax. The Vortx just got a whole hell of a lot heavier.

Black Sabbath has been around since 1968. Damn, they’re old, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t make some of the best Metal music the world has ever heard when they were in their prime. Afterall, they are credited with creating the genre of “heavy metal.” The band recently completed their very last tour and went into retirement. I’ll have to get with my sources, but I don’t believe any of the members have checked into nursing homes yet.

Motörhead started up in 1977 and didn’t shut down until late 2015. The band made the decision to call it quits just one day after they informed the fans of Lemmy’s death. For those of you who may not know, Lemmy passed away from prostate cancer on December 28th, 2015. He had been diagnosed just two days prior to his passing. This week we’ll honor Lemmy and the band as we play two of their greatest hits.

Anthrax is a Metal AF infection that is caused by Bacillus anthracis. It is also an American thrash metal band that formed in 1981. Anthrax is one of the “Big Four” thrash metal bands, the other three are Metallica, Megadeth and Slayer. Since the band formed they have released 11 albums including one called Worship Music. That record is not your church choir’s worship music.

This week we’ll also be spinning the sweet sounds of I Prevail, Black Stone Cherry and Green Day.

Don’t forget to keep up with us on Facebook and Twitter for all of the latest updates from inside the Vortx.

The Vortx understands that all of these songs may require headbanging, moshing and overall stupidity. In the case that any of these required actions take place the Vortx is not responsible for any injuries and will not pay for trips to the chiropractor. Any and all actions that may cause harm are not encouraged by the Vortx, but if you do choose to participate we sure as hell won’t stop you. If you are unable to make it to work Monday morning due to neck pain please have your immediate supervisor email and we will tell them everything. We’ll see you soon.
