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.
Well… I don’t know whether this post is ever going to see the light of day, what with our on-and-off-and-on-again recent history, but what the heck, it’s worth a shot. It’s about nothing special, apart that it’s my birthday and I wonder what it’d be like if the world was again as it was when kings were real kings and heroes didn’t think they’d be 50-ish someday and they would need a retirement plan…
Anyway, keep up metallin’ those asses and cheerz. MORE BEER, FUCKERZ!
Every time Metallica goes on tour, they have to find a gimmick to help sell more tickets. The previous years it was the ‘Big Four’ motif, this year it’s the Black Album. You know, the self-titled album fans nicknamed ‘The Black Album’ because that’s when their souls turned black and they hired a poppy producer to sell more albums…
Anyway, it’s been 20 years since they
sold out released that album, and even though this year would mark it’s 21st birthday, not 20th, they decided to play all of it.
Well, two shows (Rock In Rio and Rock Am Ring) have been streamed live via the internet, and you can now see Rock Am Ring after the jump, cause the other one is nowhere to be found in its entirety.
Why would anyone want to meet Lars? I can see why some would want to escape him, but the guy in this movie wants so bad to meet him, a movie has been made about him.
“Mission To Lars” tells the story of Tom Spicer, an autistic Metallica fan who just wants to meet Lars Ulrich — and the journey he makes to do so.
There are so many jokes I could do right now, and trust me, I’m trying really hard to control myself. I’m just wondering if this guy was the inspiration for the name ‘Lulu.’
Okay, I know, I’m going to hell, but the movie does seem pretty touching… Hell, it made Lemmy cry.
Metallica‘s own festival has a pretty shitty lineup, but now things get even crazier. James will host some kind of car/bike show or something.
Watch the video above and find out more about it. I got distracted by the comma hanging from James’ chin. What is that? He looks like a villain from Wild Wild West.
You know, when people mock, criticize, or even question some religions, people go apeshit over it. But how does one blasphemous motherfucker get away with ruining Metallica’s self-titled album by adding Jay-Z’s poems over it?
“RawHustle.com links up with BamBeatz which is a very talented up and coming Hip Hop producer from Miami. Last year was Metallica’s ‘Black’ album 2oth year Anniversary and Jay-Z’s ’Black’ album 10th year Anniversary.BamBeatz is dropping a mixtape of both black albums together (Metallica & Jay-Z). Here is his first leak off his “Double Black” mixtape dropping in Spring.”
More info here.
This is the song, if you really want a combination of ear cancer and hearing AIDS (as in HIV, yo):
At least they only butchered the Black album. If they touch Master of Puppets, shit is gonna get real, son. WHAAAT? WESSIDE!111
As we all know, Dave joined Metallica on stage at their 30th anniversary shows… Dave seems very happy about that, since he keeps saying how great it was. Which is cool, considering the way he talked about Metallica a few years ago…
“I think you can see from the way the guys lit up that it was mutually beneficial for everybody. We all expected something magical to happen, and it did. We were playing stuff off the first record that I’d written in my teenage years. It was a blast.”

Aww, Dave is in love. <3
Guess I was wrong… When Metallica ‘teased’ us with a special announcement, it was not about the 3D movie like I had predicted. They’re actually doing their own festival.
It’s called Orion Music + More and it’s happening in Atlantic City, on 23 and 24 June.
The lineup is pretty shitty, but Metallica is headlining both nights, playing The Black Album in its entirety the first night, then Ride The Lightning the second night. Pretty cool if you like Metallica, but pretty boring if you want a full festival. The other bands are Arctic Monkeys, Avenged Sevenfold, Modest Mouse, and a bunch of other acts I’d never want to see live.
Granted, this is their first one, so maybe the next one will be better. If there will be a next one. It’s just that, if someone asked me about a Metallica festival dream lineup, I’d list the rest of the Big Four, Exodus, Down, that kind of thing. Arctic Monkeys and Modest Mouse? What the fuck?
update: Sorry for screwing up the video, added a 20 minute one which includes the live conference they had on the site. The presenter has to get an award for best facial hair ‘hide your double chin’ illusion attempt. Personally, I’d recommend a diet and exercise plan, but doing a chinstrap over the double chin kinda works too, I guess.
Hey, Metallica have a very important message for you guys. You need to go to Metallica.com on February 7, at 11 am pacific time. They won’t tell you what this is about, but I will…
This is probably about their 3D movie, which we’ve known since last year if you want to count the rumors, but it got confirmed in January. This is good cause I’ve made this image of James as an Avatar character, and it will be great finding opportunities to keep using it.
We recycle here on Dose of Metal, from images to jokes to everything. We’re green and we care about the environment. What do YOU do for the planet, huh? Fucking loser.
Anyway, yeah, come back here on February 7 at 11.02 am to see us make fun of whatever the band is announcing.
Pretend-fighter Hulk Hogan claims he could have been a pretend-member of Metallica — get it? Cause except James and Lars, no one has a say in that band. Jeez, why do I have to explain all the jokes to you?
“I used to be a session musician before I was a wrestler. I played bass guitar. I was big pals with Lars Ulrich and he asked me if I wanted to play bass with Metallica in their early days but it didn’t work out.“
Visit the page we stole this from here.
This guy would have nailed the AJFA gig. Imagine pretending to do something, but not actually doing it… Not that hard for a pro wrestler, is it?
