The Evil Engineer. Web blog started by Bill Goodman, formerly from The Soda Shop.
I started writing about music in February 2009 with The Soda Shop. Spreading news and reviews focused on the stoner rock, hard rock, doom metal and sludge metal genres. I took a hiatus from The Soda Shop in May 2013 to deal with some personal issues. I wrote a little bit for The Ripple-Effect but I did miss the whole running a whole site deal.
Originally I wanted to name the site after a Clutch song. I also wanted a dot com address. All the names that I considered were already taken as a dot com in some capacity. After a few days of pondering what to name the site it occurred to me. By profession I’m a locomotive engineer for a class 1 railroad. I haul heavy freight. I thought something with engineer in the title sounded fitting, thus the name “The Evil Engineer” name was born. On February 11th, 2014, I registered the domain and the site was born.
