October 24th, 2021 - The Kommander of Udder Kaos


Good afternoon and happy Sunday craft brew fiends, evildoers, and rebel rousers!  The Meista here getting heavy with classic rocker "Kommander Of Kaos" by Wendy O. Williams and a delicious Udder Chaos Chocolate Milk Stout from Talisman Brewing Company!  Hell yeah!

  • Sound: Combining elements of heavy metal/hard rock and punk rock, the sound on "Kommander Of Kaos" is a bit of a love child of early Plasmatic punk influence and the band's more mainstream aspirations in later years.  It isn't brilliant, but it is a lot of fun!  Motörhead and NWOBHM influence is heavy throughout as well.
