"For a fake band, Tenacious D’s history is real enough: after getting discovered by David Cross and establishing a line of credit at the Bank of Indie with an HBO show canceled after just three episodes, the group (comprised of Black and partner Kyle Gass) shot into the mainstream with their self-titled 2006 masterpiece, poking fun at and worshipping the id of ’70s heavy metal. Then, like so many Alan Parsons Projects of yore, they overshot creatively, releasing the confusing flop film The Pick of Destiny. After that, silence. And with this year’s new album, Rize of the Fenix, they complete the rock-drama-cycle with The Comeback."

- I wrote about Tenacious D for Capital New York and am quite happy with that paragraph.
