Friday Top 10: Live videos I enjoy

It’s a very slow Friday here at the Dose of Metal office, probably because we don’t have one.

Anyway, since we don’t have a great Top 10 for today, instead of just not posting one, I’ve decided to do a half-assed one. Well, everything on this site is half-assed, so this would be more of a ‘quarter-assed’ article.

So this is a list of ten live videos I enjoy. If you can’t cope with so much mediocrity, please understand that it’s not our fault our moms drank vodka during our pregnancies.

We also used that photo of a crowd that a reader sent to us, just to show how racially diverse we are, yo.


Friday Top 26: Heavy Metal Alphabet

We’ve done so many Top 10’s already, but this time we’ve decided to top it all with a Top 26. 26? There was something with 26, right? You got it! The Latin alphabet, that is used in most countries on this planet, has 26 letters.

So what are we going to do with these 26 letters? Well, every band has a bandname, and every bandname consists of letters. Can you follow me so far? We’re going to list the best band for each letter of the Latin alphabet (including their best song and album).

Ain’t that cool, now? It sure is. Make the jump for 26 letters and 26 ear-shattering Metal bands!


One more time: Up the Irons!

I was just thinking of a headline for this particular news post about Iron Maiden, and ‘one more time’ sprung into my mind. And then I had the above song by Daft Punk stuck in my head. The mind works in mysterious ways.

So let’s get on topic: We’re in for, at least, one more Iron Maiden album! That’s right, The Last Sucker Final Frontier was not Maiden’s last album, according to Bruce Dickinson:

“The singer (…) believes Maiden will make “at least one more album” to follow last year’s chart-topping 15th record The Final Frontier.”

That’s what he said to the Daily Star, and he added:

“Things have been going a bit more prog-rock on our recent albums and the fans seem to love that.”

You know, I’m actually a bit split on that now. I’m happy that Iron Maiden put their retirement on hold (for, what seems like, the 1.000th time), but I was not a big fan of The Final Frontier, nor A Matter Of Life And Death. I don’t dislike Matter… but I do dislike Frontier. Let’s put it some other way, because you simply can’t dislike any Iron Maiden album: I don’t care for The Final Frontier.

So I would have liked the band to go back to their Brave New World sound but, I guess, we’re in for another snoozefest. Oh well, yay either way.


Bruce Dickinson likes to fly

We all know Iron Maiden flies in a big ass plane which looks pretty badass. We also know Bruce flies that thing, because he loves it. But what we don’t know is that I have a huge penis, and I’m pretty much handsome, smart and successful.

I don’t have a NSFW video to prove that to you, but I have a very-SFW video about Bruce. Not that he’s more interesting than I am, or anything, but it’s all I have for you today.


Metalheadlines: Kill me now edition

That photo above will give me nightmares for the following weeks. Boner killer.

Lady Gaga (pictured above) keeps trying to fool us into thinking she likes metal. She keeps using Iron Maiden‘s name, too, which is total blasphemy. We’ve heard your songs, bitch, the only thing metal about you is the cage I’d put you in, given the chance.

Devildriver‘s bassist, Aaron “Bubble” Patrick, was injured. I’m sorry to hear that, and I wish him a speedy recovery. But being the glass-half-full guy that I am,  I’m looking on the bright side: Their tour is on hold.

Gwar lead singer (and I use the term singer very, very loosely) got canned from Fox News because he pulled a stunt where he decapitated Sarah Palin, or something. Getting fired from that channel is a bit like getting fired as a janitor. If you’re not even good at the worst job in the world, what on Earth are you good at? I didn’t even know you had a job there, but I laugh at you, Oderus Urungus!

Chickenfoot bassist says new Chickenfoot album has ‘more meat.’ PETA are gonna have a blast with this band.

Alice In Chains are working on new music. That’s not the only bad news, they also use Heart‘s Ann Wilson as their PR agent. Ann called their new music ‘amazing,’ so that should give you a hint about her taste in music.

Sepultura‘s new album, Kairos, sold 2,500 copies in the U.S. in its first week of release. That’s 700 copies more than Megadeth‘s Peace Sells reissue. MAJORLOLZ.

And finally, Anthrax‘s upcoming studio effort, Worship Music, has a pre-order bundle ready. You know what that means? It means that if you pre-order it, you get a bundle of joy in your life. I’m as funny as Lady Gaga‘s small penis.
