In case you are blissfully unaware, today marks quite a specific day in, well, the history of the internet. To protest the upcoming legislation in the US congress (SOPA and PIPA… even the names kinda fucking suck) that could pretty much fuck the internet up as we know it, and to raise awareness of the implications, a lot of websites are going dark today.
Two of the most popular ones probably being the English Wikipedia and Reddit, but a lot of smaller websites are also joining the “internet blackout day.” Some metal sites are also trying to get their reader base familiar with the situation, namely The Gauntlet and Metal Archives (possibly more).
While Dose of Metal is all about freedom on the internet ‘n shit (in fact the website is started by a bunch of people who probably wouldn’t have ever met if it wasn’t for 1) internet and 2) metal), we won’t go to such drastic lengths.
Now, I speak for myself as this hasn’t been discussed internally, but the reasons I’ll personally keep posting today are: 1) seems kind of cocky to stop our website because as much as we’d like to believe it, we’re not really that big and we’d just be attention whoring and jumping on the band wagon; 2) a lot of people who read this website aren’t from the US, and while the bills in question could screw things up for everyone, seems unfair to those people to bother them with something they probably don’t even understand.
Instead, we’ll leave a few links to get familiar with the situation and make your own decision on whether or not these bills are bad, and in case you do find that they suck, there’s plenty of ways you (Americans) can protest this.

The rest of you can keep your fingers crossed, but ALL OF YOU can listen to some metal. Later, bitches.
I first discovered the band Anaal Nathrakh while I was searching for anal porn, having mistyped ‘anal’ as anaal. Although at first I was unamused with my Google screen being filled with “some random band” instead of the hardcore pornography I was in desperate search of, I soon realized that in actual fact, I had discovered one of the most brutal Metal bands around.
Anaal Nathrakh are a two-member, British extreme Metal band, fusing various styles of the genre, including black metal, grindcore, death metal and industrial music. The band formed in 1999 and have since released eight studio albums.
You can listen to the track ‘Virus Bomb’ from the 2007 album Hell is Empty and All the Devils are Here below. I believe it’s about a virus. A virus bomb to be precise.
We’ve made fun of supergroups before on Dose of Metal, so I thought hard about milking that cow once again. Well, I’m lying. I barely though at all, and was just looking for an excuse to write something for the site.
This time around, we really do have a gem. Justice Leauge of Deathgrind, otherwise known as Lock Up, have had their founding member, Shane Embury (the dude from Napalm Death) interviewed by some guys, and he talks about the band and what not. Apparently, they’ve had a new album come out last month, it’s called “Necropolis Transparent,” and he also discusses the band’s somewhat rotating lineup which includes people who put together will maybe some day be as famous as that clip of my cute cat that went viral at one point.
I am messing witchallz of course, the band has been around for quite a while, and Shane is an awesome guy, so I honestly recommend you make the jump, find out about the current and past members, and hear the album preview. It sounds pretty much like the perfect grind — the one you can actually listen to. Oooooh snap.
Can you believe it, we’re not dead?! Well, of course you can believe it, because if you are reading this, you’re clearly alive, and as any awesome Dose of Metal reader, you should know better than believing every stupid thing some crazy asshole tells you.
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, and I finished watching the home sex video I taped last night with three hot lesbians, we can move to the more important things, like metal, and our favorite thing to do on a Sunday (except taking beer shits), and it’s doing the recap of the previous week in form of interviews. I got to interview Alex this week, so what are you waiting for, read on!
Anaal, not anal, but you didn’t get excited for nothing because Anaal Nathrakh are currently streaming their new album Passion right here.
I’ve just had the chance to listen to the first two songs and not more just yet but those two songs (‘Volenti Non Fit Iniuria’ and ‘Drug-Fucking Abomination’) already kicked massive amounts of ass.
So if you’re in the mood for some Blackened Grind Industrial Metal (or whatever they label themselves), check it out because it’s definitely worth it.
