Dog Days

7 / 10 The dog days being that time in high summer when drooling mutts are most likely to have a heavy dose of the mad death. Rabies that is.

Nothing wrong with that - in these days of the mostly rubbish heavy metal renaissance the [a]Goatsnake[/a] (their vibe's ugly, believe me, I've seen the T-shirt) is waiting in the bottom of your motorcycle boot. Ready to bite back.
