You probably never would have linked Ned Flanders with metal music, but during a conversation about funny comparisons, two guys in Arizona changed all of that:
Myself and our drummer (Bled Ned) were in line at a grocery store, entertaining ourselves by coming up with really cutesy names for really hardcore, brutal bands,” [lead singer Head Ned] says. “The name Okilly Dokilly came up and was very funny to us. We ran with it. I contacted a few friends (Red Ned, Thread Ned, and Stead Ned), and here we are. Most of us have played in other bands around our hometown…This is definitely the heaviest sounding project any of us Neds have done.
If you want to hear what “Nedal” music sounds like, hit the jump to listen to four demo tracks from the new, Phoenix-based band, most of which are based on direct Ned quotes. There are also a couple additional pics of the band in costume.
