Brazilian Iron Maiden fans managed to end last night’s show by ‘breaking’ the fence separating the band from the stage. Worrying about
their own safety their fans’ safety, Iron Maiden had to end the show and Bruce’s attempts to calm the crowd were met with loud boos.
No one was hurt and they have another show today and everyone there got a bracelet for it. Whoever can’t make it will get a refund. Dammit… I don’t like happy endings (unless they’re after soapy massages).
The video of the barricade collapsing is after the jump.
What, you thought last Friday’s Top 10 was the only one? Ha, you wish! Just like a proper soap, we’re popping out endless sequels. Well, maybe not endless, because I plan to wrap it up with this one, but who knows when this topic will come back from the dead.
Make the jump and read ten more never-ending and/or soapy and/or embarrassing stories from the world of metal.
Dose of Metal is going all professional on your ass! Are you out of the loop when it comes to being up-to-date with what’s going on in metal? Who’s releasing a new album? What is Band-X’s new album called? We’ll tell you! Why? Because that’s what we do. We talk about metal! WOOO!
Polish Death Metal band Vader (not pictured above) are going into the Herz Studio in Bialystok, Poland to record the follow-up to ‘Necropolis,’ which is going to be called ‘Welcome To The Morbid Reich’.
‘Phoenix Amongst The Ashes’ is the title of Hate Eternal’s upcoming album and the band released the album artwork and songlist. Check them out after the jump.
Everybody’s favorite French
fries guys Gojira released the following statement about their upcoming album:
“We are currently working on a live DVD with important bonus section: ‘The Way Of All Flesh From The Inside’, the Sea Shepherd EP (a non-profit operation with a lot of people involved is a bit complicated to wrap, but we’re getting there and we promise to release these songs soon). We’re also composing a new album! We’ve written pretty much half of it, and we are very excited by this new material. It’s a big step for us. These songs are original and a good reflection of what we are today. We are so focused on these things that sometimes we forget to communicate with [the fans], but we’ll try to post more updates from now on.”
Iron Maiden have announced
the 20.000th a new best-of double-CD, entitled ‘From Fear To Eternity: The Best Of 1990-2010′. Artwork and songlist after the jump.
Peter Tägtgren (Hypocrisy mainman) has announced the albumtitle of the forthcoming Pain album. The album is going to be called ‘You Only Live Twice’. Eh, I can’t even come up with a good punchline involving that title. Think of one yourself, you lazy fool!
And the most important news of the past couple of days was that Kerry King is a bobblehead! Or The Music Farm are going to release a bobblehead moddled after Kerry King. Whatever. Check out a video of the bobblehead after the jump.
There has been quite a bit of festival news today, but apart from this piece of news I’m reporting on, nothing that I give a shit about. Something about Skunk Anansie playing the UK’s Download festival (really Download? Really? Your line-up sucks more dick than a prostitute on speed ) and then some other crap I actually can’t remember.
So on with the important shit…
The Bulgarian Sonisphere will be home to the mighty Iron Maiden this year, otherwise known as the greatest Metal band ever. Bulgaria were lucky enough to get The Big Four last year, and although they won’t be getting them again this year (as to be expected), Iron Maiden are great replacement for a headlining slot.
So what happens next? Probably the usual bitching about the possible setlist. But yeah, if you’re Bulgarian, go buy a ticket already.
When we were in primary school, we all played a lot of fun games. My all-time personal favourite would probably be Duck Duck Goose. How can anyone not love this game back in the day? Good times. But I recently found an activity for kids that’s actually more fun than Duck Duck Goose. It’s called singing a song from the great Iron Maiden.
It’s a good video. It’s nice seeing little kids having fun and it’s awesome seeing them headbanging and rocking out to metal in a classroom.
Which song did they sing? Watch the video above to find out and click here to read why they decided to do this.
Iron Maiden will release a book. When? In May. What about? Their studio time. Why? $$
“John Blake Publishing will release “Iron Maiden: In The Studio” by music biographer Jake Brown. Spanning the band’s entire 30-year catalog, the writing and recording of such classic albums as “The Number of the Beast”, “Piece of Mind”, “Brave New World” and “The Final Frontier”, and hits as “2 Minutes to Midnight”, “Wasted Years”, “Can I Play With Madness?”, “Bring Your Daughter to the Slaughter”, “The Wicker Man”, “The Trooper”, “Run To The Hills”, “Powerslave” and “Hallowed Be Thy Name”, among countless others, is chronicled.”

I’m also releasing a book. It’s called “Dose Of Metal: Sex without condoms” and it will chronicle my sexual escapades on Chatroulette.com.Photo credit: IronMaiden.com
What’s better than listening to your favorite album by your favorite band? Seeing your favorite band live. And what’s better than spending your day watching midget porn? Nothing… uh… I wanted to go somewhere with this… oh yeah! What happens when you combine the first question with the first answer? Not listening to your iPod while you’re at a concert, you dumbass, listening to your favorite band’s live album!
You know why metal bands are the best live performers? Because others aren’t metal. So now I’m listing the best fucking live albums… like… EVER!
Make the jump, you fool!
I always thought being a huge fan of a band was about their music and the way you relate to it, not about how many obscure facts you know about them. But I must be in the minority, because whenever I talk to a fan about his favorite band, he always seems to sheepishly insert or allude to trivia nobody gives a fuck about, just to prove how big a fan he is. Oh right, so you know in what year Lars Ulrich bought his first condom? You must get Metallica, man.
Anyways, there’s a British show called “Mastermind” which glorifies these types of fans, and right now it’s Iron Maiden‘s turn. Some 27 year old fan will apparently answer questions about his favorite band on TV or something like that, I really didn’t have the patience to read the whole article. Think you do? Then read it here.
Make the jump to see a Metallica fan on the very same show. Make the jump off a bridge if you knew all the right answers, too.
The Iron Maidens (the World’s only all female Iron Maiden tribute band apparently) recently “saved the day” at a Paul Di’Anno (original Maiden vocalist) gig. Paul was unfortunately unable to make it to the venue due to being snowed in, but fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it), The Iron Maidens just happened to be in the crowd. The girls stepped up to perform an hour and a half set along with an ex Anthrax singer. Not sure which one though, Anthrax have had about a hundred vocalists. Nah, I’m kidding, it was Neil Turbin. As in the original singer that isn’t Joey.
Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell also helped out The Maidens. It is the reported that the crowd were happy with the alterations, as this was the first time they had seen women this close up.

Thrash metal band Exodus will open for Airplane metal band Iron Maiden in Chile.
The concert is on April 10th of this year in Santiago, Chile.
In other news, my resolution for 2011 was to delete my browser history after viewing mature porn as it’s pretty embarrassing when you’re caught watching that by your grandma.
When asked why they post useless shit like this, Dose of Metal had no comment. They just cried.
