Big 1 + 3 played New York

Last night marked The Big 4 playing the East Coast for the first time, which means I now have to cover it. MetalSucks and Metal Injection did the unthinkable and actually live-blogged a live show, which is kinda lame if you ask me, but then again, I get a free article out of this, so it’s a win for me.

To sum it up: same old same old, Gary Holt instead of Jeff Hanneman, Motorhead‘s Overkill instead of Am I Evil and members of Exodus joining the stage for that performance as well? (and you can see the clip of that above). That is all. We are now anxiously awaiting for The Big Four to announce the first show on the Moon, while this wave is still fresh for riding… Kidding aside, I actually enjoyed the mashup performance a lot, even with 30 people on stage.


Mystery of Megadeth’s Public Enemy No. 1

Dave Mustaine (Megadeth)

Hey, if you go over to Megadeth‘s website, you can stream their new song, Public Enemy No. 1. It comes out as a digital single on Tuesday, September 13, the day that’s also Dave Mustaine’s birthday.

Woah, fuck the song, let’s dig into this some more. Megadeth‘s album is also called Th1rt3en! This is just crazy. You know what also happened on September 13? Tupac got shot, that’s what happened! Holy shit you guys, can’t you see the connections? Public Enemy No. 1 is also the song by Public Enemy, featuring cryptic lyrics such as “Ya know what I’m sayin'” — I think I do. The mind blowing thing about this is that Public Enemy’s version of the song was also sampled by Puff Daddy in his own version called PE 2000.

We all know what that clearly means though. Puff Daddy obviously killed Tupac because he gained the most out of it, that much we know by all the proof that’s been circulating on the internet over the years. What no one ever could figure out is how he managed to do it, and I think that by deciphering these clues Dave Mustaine is leaving us, we can now see that it was him who did it. I mean, who would suspect a ginger involved in some gangsta wars. Just think about it, it’s quite genius. You can also see Dave has had a tough time after that and he’s been leaving us messages, just like Tupac. I mean, why would he name Megadeth‘s 1997 album (the one written around the time of Tupac’s death) Cryptic Writings?

Everything matches up (one thing I still haven’t figured out, see it after the jump). You can join me in my quest for truth over at davemustainekilledtupac.com


The Big Four Guitar World cover is here

The Big Four are featured in a Guitar World issue and we got the cover exclusively! If by ‘exclusively’ you mean ‘stolen from Blabbermouth.’ The cover is after the jump, and by the looks of it, the magazine itself features a poster of Dave and Jaymz fist-bumping each other. Sounds awesome, too bad this isn’t 1985.

Anyway, the site Glenrock Patch conducted an interview with Scott Ian, Tom Araya and David Ellefson about The Big Four and you guessed it, same type of questions, same type of answers. Read the predictable article here.

If you’re going to the NY Big Four show, we’re hosting a party on Skype for you guys, we can all like, videochat and drink beer together!!! [/lies]


Megadeth headline Mexican festival

This Friday I made a Top 10 about my favorite live clips from YouTube, and Megadeth‘s Argentinian performance was there. If you watch that clip, you will realize that Latin America loves Megadeth, so maybe it makes sense for them to headline this Mexican festival called ‘Hell & Heaven – Metal Fest 2011.’

It will happen in Guadalajara, Mexico on November 19, and hey, maybe Megadeth can get a Mexican bassist too, just like Metallica!

I keed, I keed, you know I love borderline racist jokes.

Anyway, Fear Factory is also on the bill. Make the jump to see the poster! The official website can be found here.


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.
