Metallica covers Green Day with jizz (and hair)


I was going to say 'no comment', but bwahahahahaha, is Lars now using the comb-over method? He is a Master of Disguise, while you pay attention to his hair, you don't pay any to his drumming. Wicked reality distortion. Check out the video below.

Slayer sells Google laptops


Not so great Halloween story (if you value metal's exclusiveness and anonymity).
Hell finally froze over, or should I say it's Raining Blood everywhere.
Google's attempt to sell cheap MacBook Air knockoffs with the help of metal's most metal band of all time, Slayer, makes the band sound fashionable and in my opinion cheapens the music and somewhat brands metal pushing it closer to mainstream, a place that is best avoided. The launch leaves a bad taste in true metalhead's mouth despite the Halloweenish nature of the commercial. Not sure that is enough to justify the move.

Yes, the band that was once synonymous with evil, metal-as-fuck attitude and those ungodly guitar riffs is now sponsoring software (and now hardware) giants Google. Hey, gotta look on the bright side, at least it is not another boysband or dubstep song you'd have to mute. Maybe Apple needs to hire Venom and use Welcome to Hell as the iOS intro to the Apple Maps.

GWAR goes trick-or-treating


Do the intergalactic monsters from GWAR dress up for Halloween?
FUCK NO!!!

The Retinal Circus of Devin Townsend



The only guy in the world who has time to record seven albums in a year, produce other bands, perform live and maintain his cleanly shaven head, can also blow the dust of the tunes that paved the way for his prolific career. Multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer and generally a funny guy, Devin Townsend performed a couple of tracks from his Strapping Young Lad project for the first time in years last night (Saturday, October 27) at the Roundhouse venue in London, England as part of a one-night-only event that was recorded for both DVD and Blu-ray, likely to be released sometime in the second quarter of 2013 via InsideOut Music.

Devin described The Retinal Circus as "a retrospective of my career in music to date, with the central theme being a metaphor of how life and the adventures therein are a 'circus' of sorts. The show involves a cast of characters and guests that support this theme through carnival type performances. A story about how a troubled young man dreams of fantastic scenarios, (illustrated through the music of my back catalogue), which ultimately crests in the characters realization that life is all about the relationships we have with each other. This is the first opportunity I have been given to make theatrical representations of my music."

This three-hour-plus performance included:

* A retrospective of Devin Townsend's entire career
* Full choir and theatrical cast
* Visual and aural enhancements unlike any show Devin has done to date
* Several special guests
* Circus and carnival performances and cast
* Art exhibit of Devin's albums, including explanations of each album

Don't expect a Strapping Young Lad reunion, back in January 2012 Devin has officially stated that "I don't miss the environment; the environment was really bad for me — it wasn't a healthy place for me to live emotionally or chemically."








Quest for the Cheesiest Promo Video (part 6)


Criss Angel hit it big in 2005 with Mindfreak, uber corny and narcissistic reality TV centred around a shamelessly phony pseudo magic series where the dude video tricked his audience to believing he walked through glass, leaped tall buildings, levitated and basically faked his way to Reality TV stardom.

Did you know that Criss Angel (Christopher Nicholas Sarantakos) got his showbiz start as another faker? Yeah, he was a glam hair metal poseur back in the 80s with an over the top "live" performance as shown in the video below. I'd say skip the first 30 seconds (basically a credit intro), but no, no, play the whole thing, because it even states at the beginning that "all the magic that appears in this video is genuine and is not aided by trick photography". Angel's processed cheese factory now makes perfect sense. Beginning with a dove and a puff of smoke, we're treated to magic acts involving levitation, disappearing chicks, yes, more doves, even moonwalk, and of course lots of trannies in spandex.

Axl Rose's karaoke disaster


He's back and he's baaaad. REAL BAD.
Unless Axhole Rose tried to mock himself, the attempt shown in the acoustic GNR performance was an epic fail.

Careful. This video has been previously removed due to copyright claim by Shakey Pictures.
Oh, and how the hell could they even tell this was Welcome to the Jungle?

Death metal drummer charged with child porn production



As if getting charged with child porn possession isn't bad enough, according to KDSK-TV, Martin L. Evanick, the 31-year-old drummer and vocalist for the Illinois death metal band The Core Of Your Nightmares, is facing federal child pornography charges where Evanick had sex with a minor in April and took close-up photos of the minor's genitalia.

Evanick, who performs under the pseudonym "Vlad," was indicted last week and is being held without bail. According to Southern District of Illinois prosecutors,
If convicted, Evanick faces between 15 and 30 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and term of supervised release between five years and life and best of all he will get his ass raped by a bunch of midgets with huge cocks.

Smells Like Teen Sitcom



More than twenty years after Nirvana broke through into the mainstream mostly on the strength of the song "Smells Like Teen Spirit", the band and especially the infamous track that singlehandedly killed hair metal overnight and saw flannel shirts disappear off every warehouse's floor, will see a makeover... in the form of a new family sitcom. CBS has bought the rights to a program called "Smells Like Teen Spirit" which was created by "Big Bang Theory" writer Dave Goetsch.

The program will tell the story of a teenager who "forgoes Harvard and instead opts to launch a multibillion-dollar Internet company from his garage with the assistance of his sister, best friend and his 1990s indie-rock parents". The title is clearly meant to wrap up the protagonist's ambitions and his parents' past.

If the American legal system has taught us anything, it is that you gotta clear all obstacles first, in this case Courtney Love who will sue if she hadn't signed off on the show idea.

I wonder what Kurt thinks of this.

Quest for the grossest promo video


Not to be confused with the Quest for the Cheesiest promo video series, the new quest is a bit sicker in nature. Seems like metal bands are trying to undo each other lately and release more and more brutal promo videos such as the one Cattle Decapitation did for "Forced Gender Reassignment" last week.

This time Arkansas doommetallers Rwake gave us “It Was Beautiful But Now It’s Sour” and I have to say the 12 minute video is a lot more boring than Cattle Decapitation's assault. It's basically a slow motion dog fetus torture including squishing, burning, exploding, snorting. Well, maybe not the latter, I kinda started to doze off midway through. Basically the director of this video found a few dozen ways to annihilate these unborn puppies and Rwake probably saw the vid, asked for the rights to feature their rather boring tune and if this kinda shit is your thing, then be my guest and check out this odd porn.

300,000 Motorhead hangovers

File this under truly strange, because this is such an odd combination. 
Lemmy's poison has always been whiskey, a bottle of Jack Daniels per day to be exact.
However, for some odd reason he has endorsed an Australian Shiraz which has made debut in Sweden in 2010. The 13.5% Motörhead Shiraz has been far more successful than Motörhead's album sales, as it has sold more than 300,000 bottles, but Lemmy warns that "My advice is — approach it with caution. I mean, wine is deceptive, anything can happen."

Motörhead's signature wine has been carefully selected by the hard rock legends and has been described as a wine with a fruity aroma, flavors of vanilla, blackberries, plums, eucalyptus and liquorice, but with soft rounded tannins.

The band recommends drinking it with grilled lamp chops with garlic and rosemary, while listening to anything by Motörhead, from 1980's "Ace Of Spades" to 2010's universally acclaimed "The Wörld Is Yours".

When asked how the idea for Motörhead Shiraz came about, Lemmy said in a recent interview, "Well, the company takes care of the business end and all I have to worry about is the quality. I am not going to sell shit to people, you know. We have a wine as well, that is very good. It was really simple how I got into it. This guy came up and said, 'You know, you could make money if we make this wine.' I said, 'Okay.' I think it is a California wine or it might be Spanish, I don't know. The vodka is Swedish."

What do blackmetallers think about Christian Black Metal


Christian Black Metal is such an oxymoron. You wouldn't see a Jewish orthodox salute Hitler, so why would christians start the unblack sub genre? That would be like Westboro Baptist church using Deicide's "Once Upon a Cross" as their theme song.

So what do black metal musicians think of Christian Black Metal? Check out the video below and see what Mordichrist, Watain and others think of this unlikely sub genre and if they can shed some light on this.

Former Pentagram drummer running for political office In Chile


According to Blabbermouth, Eduardo "Topo" Topelberg, former drummer of Chilean death metal legends Pentagram, is running for political office. The 45-year-old former musician is hoping to become elected one of ten councilors of Ñuñoa, a commune of Chile located in Santiago Province, on October 28.

Topelberg's campaign jingle, which can be seen below, has had more than twenty thousand views in less than two weeks.

Asked why he stopped drumming for Pentagram, Topelberg told Paniko.cl, "I started to feel a pain in my right leg and I was diagnosed with neuropathy [nerve damage]. I had to stop playing and change some of my habits. I underwent gastric bypass surgery last year and lost 80 kilograms, Now I have two musical projects: Ogre, which performs covers of Camilo Sesto and other songs in Spanish, and my other band is Electroponico, a 'tango trash' project which I began before my trip to Buenos Aires and which I intend to finish mixing soon."

Man assaults boyfriend over playing too much Alanis Morissette



According to NME, a man has been arrested for attacking his boyfriend in Jacksonville, Florida, telling police he was driven mad by his partner listening to Alanis Morissette too much.

The violent incident saw Todd Fletcher, 33, assaulted by his boyfriend, Allen Casey, 24, with a plate. Police reports reveal that Casey also attacked Fletcher with his hands during the incident and that Fletcher was left with a large cut to his face.

Police quote Casey as saying the reason for his attack was Alanis Morissette. "That's all that asshole listens to" Casey told them.

Dude, how much Alanis is too much? I'd break a plate over his head after just one song. But then again, I don't have to worry about boyfriends with shitty taste in music. Uhm, or boyfriends for that matter.

People's webcam reactions to Cattle Decapitation "Forced Gender Reassignment"


If you have no stomach to watch the original, check out these hilarious reactions by metalheads watching 2 Girls 1 Cup Cattle Decapitation gnarly video "Forced Gender Reassignment".

(As per Metal Injection post)

This Cattle Decapitation is NSFW


WARNING:
The video below (if it hasn't been censored and removed) is incredibly violent and shockingly brutal. No, seriously. Consider yourself warned.
If you are under the age of 18 you should not watch this video.

Cattle Decapitation are a brutal death metal band. We all know that, but their brutality has reached a new level. I knew they were sick, but not this sick.

Story in a nutshell. A group of Westboro Baptist Church members get kidnapped and tortured. The sex operation portrayed here (it all looks like mondo film footage) makes Human Centipede look like a preschool episode of Dora the Explorer. Not kidding.

Again, a huge warning, if you're sensitive, you might wanna skip this one. Nah, fuck it!
Who hasn't fantasized about Westboro Church hate mongers being tortured?

Watch "Forced Gender Reassignment" from the album, Monolith of Humanity at your own risk.
Don't look for this thing on YouTube.

Between the Buried and Confused


Between the Buried and Me are one of those rare modern metal bands that I get into. Big time.
What's not to like here? It's a combination of progressive metal, death metal and some hardcore. It doesn't stop there. One minute they can thrash it up, two seconds later get into some grove metal followed by an odd electronica odyssey. Never a dull moment when it comes to Between the Buried and Me. That's the way I like it. But I'm different, and music I like is not for the masses, right?

So how does something so odd, so different and swimming against the mainstream chart current become so popular? The new Between the Buried and Me album, The Parallax II: Future Sequence (2012, Metal Blade Records) has sold 17,132 copies in the first week in USA alone according to Nielsen Soundscan. That is good enough to land at #3 on Billboard! [By comparison, the last Sepultura album Kairos sold 2,500, which was already an improvement over previous (A-Lex) which only managed 1,600.]

Selling over 17,000 copies in the first week in the year 2012 is a huuuuge number, managing to do so on account of 10 to 15 minute off beat songs where a dude screams his head off is unimaginable.

I'm not convinced that the right amount of djent, metal nerdiness and skill sells albums. So what is it? Enlighten an old schooler. Would ya?!

Congrats to BTBAM and Metal Blade BTW and now I'm off to listen to Parallax II again.

Oderus calls Rob Zombie a G-rated rip off artist


In a recent interview with the Broward Palm Beach New Times, GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus was asked about the fact that GWAR isn't regarded as "shocking" as the band used to be.

"A lot of bands have tried to do what GWAR does," Brockie said "But no band has ever taken it as far as GWAR has. No one has ever out-sicked us.

"You think these Walmart behemoths of the music industry like Marilyn Manson or Rob Zombie are really scary people? That they have any kind of revolutionary agenda? All they care about is making money, and hanging out with their director buddies as they throw gala award ceremonies to circle jerk each other into a frenzy. GWAR is where GWAR should be: In the drawer marked filth."

He continued, "There would not be SLIPKNOT without GWAR. I have a direct quote from Rob Zombie about GWAR when he was figuring out what he wanted to do with his career. They asked him, 'Hey what do you think of them?' and he said, 'The first time I saw GWAR, I thought 'I want to be that, but I want to make money.'' That, to me, says a lot about Rob Zombie as an artist. It says that he isn't one.

"I give Manson a little more credit. He has a strand of pure obnoxiousness in him. I heard a story, some girl tried to get his signature and he hocked a huge bloody loogie. 'There's my signature.'

"Rob Zombie is a tired, G-Rated mishmash of other people's styles.

"When I see Slipknot I see lots of pentagrams and cow skulls. Really familiar imagery. What I do like about Slipknot is their music. Their drummer is fucking amazing. But when I get to Marilyn Manson, he's a little harder to peg. A little Alice Cooper, a little Bowie, a little Johnny Rotten.

"GWAR has done similar things. We've borrowed liberally from other shit. But no one has gone further than GWAR has gone."

Both Manson and Zombie have been at each other's throats during a recent tour. These rockstars engaged in a war of words worthy of pre-teen boys' dispute over marbles or comic books (citation needed). Check out the vids below.

10 year old Ozzy fangirl has some bite


Canadian band Motion Device is fronted by a 10-year-old female singer Sara Menoudakis, who, together with her 13-year-old brother David, 15-year-old sister Andrea, 18-year-old cousin Josh and 18-year-old family friend Alex can be seem performing a cover of Black Sabbath's "War Pigs" in a clip below.

Motion Device recently made its radio debut on "The Kim Mitchell Show" on Toronto's classic rock station Q107. They also performed on national TV on CTV's "Canada AM" and played the halftime show in front of 20,000 for the Toronto Argonauts at The Rogers Centre.

The Menoudakis kids got their passion for rock from their father John Menoudakis, who has co-written their handful of original songs. He also functions as Motion Device's manager.

"Sara definitely doesn't have a dainty voice," he laughed. "She does realize that if she is going to continue with music she needs to, number one, be unique."

Since the band launched a Twitter account earlier in the year, John has posted nearly 28,000 tweets and has reached out to such legendary rockers as AEROSMITH's Steven Tyler and Alice Cooper.

Cooper tweeted a response to MOTION DEVICE's cover of "School's Out" saying, "The singer is a 10-year-old girl, but this band has more bite than most."

Burzum - Pizza Hut


If this promo doesn't make you hungry, then obviously Burzum's reputation for burned crust still needs a bit of work.

Fart, orgasm or guitar solo?

When you see the instrument in hand you're convinced that someone is having sex on stage, but when the guitar is cropped out, it could look like anything. You decide.


Ritchie Sambora
Dude, what the fuck did you eat!?


Angus Young
OMG! Viagra makes everything stand up.


Alex Lifeson
He should have eaten a few more prunes before the show.


Paul Gilbert
Wow! I hope Mr Big is getting some and not receiving. Could be either.


Eddie Van Halen
Come on baby, finish what ya started.

Super hot blond does wicked extreme metal vocal covers


Wow! Should Angela Gossow decide to leave Arch Enemy, I think I may have found Angela 2.0. Check out this hot chick from Canada (although accent points to some place in Eastern Europe) as she screams to Arch Enemy's My Apocalypse. While other blondes her age are busy shopping or admiring nude photos of Bieber, this chick spends her spare time dressing her room up with Death logos and doing cool (if not a bit death-corish) vocal covers.
OK, so I'm not really a pig, but as I'm watching this vid, I keep thinking how I want to become her microphone. I sure as hell hope she also plays any of those guitars in her room.

BTW, she also does Death and Satyricon vocal covers. I guess I know what you're doing tonight.

Steve-O introduces Deicide

\m/ WEEKEND REWIND \m/



This has got to be one of the coolest band introductions ever. Jackass star Steve-O announces that Satan himself, Glen Benton and crew are about to hit the stage.

In this hilarious intro recorded on October 14th, 2009 in Santa Ana, CA., Steve-O tells the audience that god was going to send Santa over, but instead Satan sent Deicide.

In a documentary about Steve-O's drug addiction he has been seen wearing a Deicide shirt, so this and his anti-religious rants should not come as surprise. Enjoy a clip below.

Quest for the Cheesiest Promo Video (part 5)


When a balding dude storms out of the outhouse while instantly shredding the fiddle, you know you're in for a treat. And that's just the beginning. Naturally the rest of the trolls join him in an epic outdoor jam that takes you back several centuries to the medieval times which vaguely asks the question; where the fuck did they find electricity to power their gear? Dressed as cavemen they certainly don't look like time travellers. Watch one of the finest folk metallers Korpiklaani as they not only entertain themselves at the stage in the woods, but also feast on the forest squirrels and get violently drunk (Spoiler alert! The fiddle guy is not affected by alcohol).
This looks more like Quest for Fire rather than Quest for the Cheesiest Promo Video, but their submission has been granted. Enjoy.

Symphony of Destruction (reggae version)


Yah mon, yo mama would appreciate this version of Megadeth's Symphony of Destruction.

You gotta admit that for some very strange reason the combination of Megadeth and reggae oddly works quite well. Could be the smell of ganja in this room.

Get a massive Earache stick for $160


Times are tough these days, labels are closing, digital conditions dictate a massive shift in music, and mainstream is abandoning the concept of an album. These days you either move on with the times or fade away. Labels are forced to comply with a new rules of the game and either offer their catalogue in streaming format or some type of a digital download. Only those who are ready for the paradigm shift can expect to stick around.

One of those forward-thinking (and historically groundbreaking on a musical level) has to be Earache Records, easily one of the finest metal labels. They're responsible for signing Napalm Death, Repulsion, Vader, hell, they're pretty much responsible for putting extreme metal on the map. One has to wonder where would we be without such minds as Digby Pearson, founder of Nottingham, UK based Earache Records. While other labels desperately sue downloaders in hopes of a short gain, Earache embraces digital format and while celebrating 25 years in business, they're offering you an amazing deal.

They're offering 1,900 mp3 tracks from its illustrious catalogue on a custom shaped 8GB USB stick for just $160!

They're giving fans an approximately £1500.00 (US $2,500) worth of music (at current iTunes prices) for £99.99 (US $160). Hell of a deal!!!

Songs are fully labels with correct ID3 tags and contains albums from all eras of the label. From the 90's era classics like Napalm Death, Carcass, Morbid Angel, Entombed, to the present daycondenders like Woods of Ypres, Cerebral Bore & Evile.

Support a forward thinking label and feel good about being a part of their 25 year celebration of delivering the coolest underground music. I know I own copious amounts of Earache cassettes, vinyl, CDs and mp3s.

Hurry, this is a limited time offer.

Smashing Pumpkin sued over fallen tree


This week in Lawsuits continues.

According to TMZ.comSmashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan is being sued by his Beverly Hills neighbours, "Grey's Anatomy" star Eric Dane and his wife Rebecca Gayheart (I'm not making this shit up), over damage caused to their property by a fallen tree.

In the lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Dane claims that the tree, which once stood on Corgan's property, smashed into his house during a major storm last year, setting off the sprinkler system and snapping the power lines. Dane's pregnant wife was forced to evacuate a "quickly flooding" home while dodging live high-voltage wires. Dane's wife and daughter were able to escape without harm.

In my country, when you escape something like this "near-death-experience", you either go to the church and make a donation or you buy a lottery ticket or simply get shitfaced. Sadly that is not practiced everywhere. Not that I'm siding with Corgan here, he could be sued by an army of his former bandmates for all I care, but I think it's just a quick get rich scheme and that kinda bothers me. Maybe she really needs the money, she lives in a Beverly Hills Ghetto where fuckin' trees fall on your property.

Meanwhile Corgan insists the whole thing is a misunderstanding, telling TMZ.com that "I was horrified when I learned about the tree falling during what was a massive storm, a storm with winds strong enough to uproot a 50 foot tree by its base! Thankfully no one was injured.”

Corgan went on to call the lawsuit "a shame, because [Dane and Gayheart] are nice people."

One Man, One Black Metal

This is finally a portrayal of Black Metal that goes beyond the image and the stories. Yes, it is USBM, but perhaps that is the main reason this won't bore you as that of another BM documentary rehashing the same shit.

Black metal has an illustrious heritage, but its story is often told in the wrong ways. Noisey and Vice are proud to present "One Man Metal", a new three-part documentary with three of the most reclusive figures of the black metal scene, Leviathan, Striborg and Xasthur. They exist on the fringes of black metal and rarely have been documented… until now.


In this new documentary, Noisey follows the lives of three enigmatic solo artists — Leviathan, Striborg and Xasthur — producing black metal on the margins of society. These are men who don't just play the music, but embody what it reflects: isolation, misanthropy, and anger.

Presented in sumptuous black and white, the documentary moves from Chicago, to Los Angeles and Tasmania, interviewing these exceptional musicians, most of whom had never shown their face on camera before.

This week, "One Man Metal" will see a full international release, following series of delays leading up to Whitehead's 2011 conviction on one count of aggravated domestic battery.

Despite the richness of the genre, there ore only a handful of definitive pieces on the subject of black metal. This week, "One Man Metal" joins Michael Moynihan's "Lords Of Chaos" and Vice's book and documentary "True Norwegian Black Metal" in that illustrious lineage.

Parts 2 and 3 will run this month on Noisey.

Whether you give a shit about Kiss or not, you gotta love the country-style banter and yeehaws between the verses here.

Maid sues Chris Cornell and his wife

Oh, with a headline like this, you just hope there is some incredible story to tell.
So, I'm going to have to make one up, because the lawsuit seems disappointing.

Chris Cornell had it all, popular grungy band, a sound investment in a house with a garden and a loving wife.
Enter Mora, a voluptuous maid with big tits and a big ass and an even bigger appetite for rockstar cock. This maid to order groupie served her time in the Cornell's residence mostly cleaning under Chris' desk and his rusty cage until his wife Vicky saw her pay stub and noticed that 43 hour work weeks and cobwebs in the bathroom did not add up. So she cut Mora's overtime, took away her benefits and forced Mora to work during breaks.

While Vicky thought the maid didn't do enough, she also accused Mora of doing too much, as in more than just ironing Chris' flannel shirts and threw her out the door.

Now, Mora, a fan of grunge, tired of the rockstar behaviour, but in a true american tradition is suing the couple.

Can't wait to hear more on that.

Well, this could also be a publicity stunt to drum up some biz for the upcoming Soundgarden CD.

Cat reacts to metalcore

Scion aiming for headbangers



The once considered a hipster brand of cars, Scion is after your money, my metal friend. According to a report coming from AdWeek, Toyota's Scion division thinks the heavy metal crowd has a bad reputation and is undervalued as a consumer base. Scion has recently opened a gallery in Los Angeles that features works from British artist French, among others. According to the report, Scion's vehicles will be on display as well, in case patrons want to go for a test drive after purchasing some artwork. Scion’s “lifestyle” efforts also include live heavy metal shows, CDs and vinyl albums, and music videos produced by the brand-as-music-label. More than 1,700 artists have participated in more 10,000 events in 250 U.S. cities.

As a metal and car enthusiast, I can only tell you that Scion's FR-S, co-developed with Subaru is the only metalworthy offering from this car company.

Shifting their focus from hipster to metal crowd is a daring move, especially that their cars are about image with little else a true metalhead would appreciate. Now if only you could custom fit them with made-to-order artwork outside or skull shifters... wait a minute, you're a metalhead, you can do that to a Dodge or Kia.
