Thursday Thirteen #67 — Bits about Deadly Metal Hatchet


I’ve been on this Deadly Metal Hatchet kick lately, wanting to make the time to explore them more, learn their back story, bring more of them to you.

Thirteen Things about Deadly Metal Hatchet

1. Deadly Metal Hatchet is four guys who have created a gimmick for themselves that works. Think Iron Maiden’s Eddy, only more gruesome.

2. That gimmick is the Deadly Metal Hatchet, their mascot.

3. Here’s links to other DMH posts. The first. An earlier Thirteen. Chelle and the Hatchet. The perils of being a baby band. And meeting a groupie.

4. Fozzy, the lead guitarist, is the only known survivor of a Hatchet attack. That’s why the Hatchet lives with him now.

5. Fozzy founded the band as a better way to cope with a bad motorcycle accident. The alternative was to crawl into a bottle. Which he tried.

6. Lido’s the singer.

7. He figured that being in a band would take him out of town and away from the woman he loved — and who loved him back.

8. Scott’s bass drum was a Hatchet victim. Thankfully, Scott wasn’t playing it at the time.

9. Unfortunately, though, the Hatchet did its work before a show. Scott’s tech was one busy man, but it wasn’t enough and the band had to take the stage without the drums. They returned in the second song. Thankfully.

10. By that time, the audience was booing. It was an ugly show.

11. It took them awhile to get booked again after that. And when they did, they had to play the frat of one of Lido’s friends.

12. Fozzy and the Hatchet had a long talk about desecrating the band’s equipment.

13. Notice how there’s nothing about Gecko yet? Like I said, I’m still working on these guys.

    I’m trying to imagine them performing without the drum set. Especially the drummer. Did he just stand there? Play the cow bell?

    Too cool! We have a band in The Bar Story, but none of the characters are mine. My character is their producer… a 1000 year old vampire! LOL I love the name Deadly Metal Hatchet!

    Where’s my boyrfriend Trevor?? Boy, I bet he’ll be bummed you aren’t writing about him. I of course saw the hatchet and thought “I hope Trevor isn’t doing things with that hatchet!” ;)BR/BR/Happy TT Susan!

    I love these guys – exactly the sort of band I would have gone to see in the student union bar! Like some of the bands I actually did see, they would be great if only they sounded great!BR/BR/I loved Iron Maiden (still do) and was a big fan of Eddy in my teens. While others had posters of pretty boys in bands I had a huge Eddy poster over my bed!
