Stovokor! Captain pInluH and Commander Khrell are stuck in Portland, the sneaky Ferengi having sold them a 'faulty temporal device.' Life is hard on Earth, it seems. Did anyone get a set list? No matter. It's my beleif that we will not see these warriors astride golf carts. Look out, number 1: perhaps they are looking to pull a Titor on your burgeoning data empire!

Looks like a Klingon. Smells like a vagrant. Sings like Cookie Monster from Sesame Street. Brilliant!

Stovokor puts on a really fun show. Not only is it damn fine metal, but they stay in character even when they're wandering around the bar.

Also, tomorrow they're playing with Seattle's Bloodhag at the Ash Street Saloon, a show that every Portland resident should go to.

Hmm, I hate Star Trek and heavy metal is my least favorite style of music. This Portland resident will probably not go.

I thought all those death metal bands already sang in Klingon.

Seriously, though, while I'm no death metal fan in general (I do have an inexplicable soft spot for Opeth), this is better than I expected.

Bloodhag rules! I used to practice down the hall from 'em, and didn't know who they were. I heard them discussing a set list:

"No, Isaac Asimov should come before Ray Bradbury."

"But what about Dick? I think we shouild open with JRR Tolkien, hit PKDE, and then do Asimov."

"No WAY, man, I am SO TIRED of PKD."

etc.

(The band's songs are all about, and named after, SF authors.)

Also, Stovokor will be seen in the just-out Trekkies II, playing with some other Trek bands.)

Actually, they seem to sing in English (based on the clip I just partway-listened to). I was hoping for Klingon. Maybe they also do Klingon. I agree, though, that singing in Klingon would fit nicely with their genre - only the Trekkers would be able to tell the difference.

I am enjoying the image of these guys banging their wigged heads in unison. Breakin the' law, breakin' the law!!

typo-mania! Sorry, doing too many things at once. Kindall, can you rig up an electroshock mechanism or something?

They're not bad, as Klingon Death Metal bands go, but they're no Hatebeak.

Already *bzzt* got one. Oh, you mean *bzzt* for you?

Shouldn't that be a Klingon Pain Stick?

Maybe they can have a "Battle of the Bands" with No Kill I.

All phasers must be checked at the door, natch.
