Getcha wax pull

dime

If you ever asked yourself where you could see a wax figure of Dimebag, you’re in luck. Apparently someone made on and it’s on display at this museum in Niagara Falls.

I never really understood the point of wax statues, to be honest with you. They almost never look like the real version, they always have something off, and they’re fucking creepy. That’s not to say I wouldn’t like to see this one if I lived near that museum, but I know people who go to wax museums and took shitloads of photos with their ‘favorite celebrities.’ Why?

You might as well Photoshop yourself next to a celebrity if you want a photo with him/her that badly, it’s the same thing.

Tell you what, $10 says this wax figure plays guitar better than anyone in nu-metal.

Not being in Metallica anymore kinda sucks

newsted

17 years ago he was smearing feces all over himself in a music video, as Metallica were reinventing themselves as artsy fartsy softer rock guys. Now things aren’t any better, as Jason would probably prefer smearing shit again all over himself for Metallica, rather than be thrown off the stage by a crazy fan.

Happens at around 3:08

It’s not like Jason isn’t used to falling during concerts, though.

Paris Hilton and Limp Bizkit are on the same label

freddurst

Cash Money Records is a hip-hop label, yo. Wesside. Lil’ Wayne, for instance, is signed there. And say what you will about him as a rapper, but he kills this guitar solo. His thumb picking lead guitar work has influenced thousands of Down Syndrome kids around the world.

Anyway, they also welcomed Limp Bizkit on that label, trying to prove that talent isn’t really necessary to be signed to them. But now they have a brand new artist signed, and when I say artist, I’m using the term very loosely.

That’s right, folks. I’m talking about Paris Hilton. The original ‘famous for no reason whatsoever’ chick who proved two things to the world. 1. Kids don’t really need any colors in their porn videos to masturbate, green nightvision will do just fine.  2. The only talent you need in this business is the talent required to suck a dick right after pressing the REC button.

Now what does this have to do with metal? Nothing, but we’ve made it a tradition to laugh at nu-metal here, and I just wanted to show you that there is a label out there for talented folks such as Fred, Lil’ Wayne, and Paris Hilton. Well done, guys. Can’t wait to illegally download your new records, just for the chance of sending those files to the TRASH instantly.

17 years ago Metallica fans said WTF

sleeps

On this exact day in 1996, the world (and especially diehard Metallica fans) said “WHAT THE FUCK!!???” as Tallica released their video for “Until It Sleeps.”

Don’t get me wrong, I like this song way better than I like a lot of other Load tracks. But the video is full of weird imagery inspired by a Dutch painter and a completely different band. Haircuts, eyeliner, Lars’ nipple ring, Jason smearing feces all over his body, all of this was pretty fucked up.

All the eyeliner and artsy fartsy crap came from Lars and Kirk, apparently James hated all of it. This begs the question, why did he go along with it? I guess we’ll never know, all we know is, 17 years later, another ‘different’ video from Metallica debuts. It’s the trailer for their new IMAX movie.

Go watch it on their official site, or after the jump.

Sweet sexy succulent Satan, Ghost released their first video today

Continuing their downward spiral, the sellout band Ghost (or Ghost B.C. as they go by these days) just released their first official video, for the previously released track “Secular Haze.”

I remember those good old days of almost 13 months ago, when when this band made simple, catchy, 70’s sounding stony doom music and gave me credibility on obscure metal forums, but suddenly it feels like they’ve been making all the wrong moves. The new song is simple, catchy, 70’s sounding stony doom, and I guess it’s still pretty good, but I don’t feel as comfortable with it as I did all those moons ago. Fuck this band.
