In 1980, Venom Received the Most Priceless Rejection Letter from EMI

Venom was never a particularly skilled or talented band, and the rejection letter they received from EMI could not be telling them the truth in a more subtle way.
I'm so glad the boys were persistent.

If there ever was a picture that was worth a thousand words, this has to be it!

Tom Araya Sings Scorpions Blackout

I bet you've never seen Tom Araya on stage without his bass, much less singing anything other than Slayer's own tunes. So here is a rare look at Tom Araya circa 1982 singing Scorpions “Blackout” sans bass guitar.

What's even better is that the accompanying band is what was to become Bloodcum few years later, a band featuring Tom's brother John on guitar.

'Thrashing Through The Snow' Is The Greatest Thing Megadeth (Almost) Did in the Last Decade. Sarcasm Removed

When you think of the greatest Mustaine and Co. establishments, you’d have to go back to early 90's to find much of an inspiration, as the latest eyesore “Super Cock Slider” is proof positive that once you derail your train of consequences, you should just stick to re-releasing greatest hits and writing books about drugs and groupies.

So when I heard of “Thrashing Through the Snow”, I actually thought Megadaves released an Xmas album, and while that would not surprise me in the least, the fact that the spoof of xmas portrayed by Megadeth aired on Jimmy Kimmel and was actually quite funny.

Grab some eggnog and crank it up. It's a blast to see the band dressed in Christmas sweaters playing Frosty the Snowman, Little Drummer Boy and the likes.

Periphery Covered on Piano and Drums is Ultra Badass

Check out this instrumental cover of Periphery's “Make Total Destroy” off their 2012 album “Periphery II, This Time Its Personal”, performed and recorded in the Berklee College of Music studios by two members of the Berklee-based Progressive Metal band, Zombie Frogs, Joey Izzo - Piano and Erik Huang - Drums. The guys are huge fans of Periphery and with skills like this, how could you not want to check out more of their stuff?

Cemetery Gates With One Hand on Fretboard, Another on Keyboard

December 8 is the infamous date that marks the death of Dimebag Darrell.
It's simply impossible to turn away from Gabriel Guardian's guitar and piano cover of Pantera's Cemetery Gates. You can easily see why Dimebag was such an influence on this guy.

Grampa Tom Araya Interviewed by 12-Year Old Girls

This is by far the best interview series on the internet. Hands down the two girls are the greatest interviewers on earth! They're not afraid to talk to the likes of Slayer frontman Tom Araya. I bet old dudes like this, who should be wearing hearing aids must be really ancient to 12 years olds.
Take a look at the old Tom and listen to the classic questions by Olivia and Connie as Kids Interview Bands below.

Jim Carrey Talks About Napalm Death

OK, so the metal nerd in me wants to say, "fuck that, Napalm Death is not thrash", but there is that other part of me that will never forget Jim Carrey singing with Cannibal Corpse in Ace Ventura. While I thought that during the movie, Hollywood enhanced his vocals, I now must admit I was wrong, and now I think he missed his chance, 'cause with those snarls, he'd make a helluva growler.
