Ghost, Mastodon and Opeth tour is on

Ya heard? We don’t be lyin’. Satan represent!

Ghost, Mastodon and Opeth tour has been speculated, kinda confirmed and now completely confirmed by Mastodon themselves.

“…We go to Australia take part in the “Soundwave Festival“, which is going to be lovely… Take a short break. Do a North American tour with Opeth and Ghost. And then take another break and come back over here for the European festival season.” – Source

The interview I got this from can be seen here, and above you can check out a clip by Ghost to get a dose all sorts of awesomeness you can expect on the tour.


Break it on down, Heritage styley

Above these amazing words, you can watch the first part of the much needed track-by-track breakdown of Opeth‘s latest album, Heritage, courtesy of Mikael Åkerfeldt.

In case you hadn’t noticed by the way, this is the new trend: Bands reviewing their new albums, so we don’t have to. Really nice of them, isn’t it?

Unfortunately, this time I haven’t even watched the video, as I’ve been listening to the album for the past two or three weeks, thus rendering this video a wee bit pointless.


Opeth mainman in new video interview

Fancy taking a trip back in time? Then why not watch the video interview with Opeth frontman Michael Åkerfeldt above. It’s a new interview, but it was taking with such a shitty camera, you’d think it’s 2001 and the first video phone had just come out.

The interview was conducted by Sam “Blammymatazz” Hatch, host of the Hartford, Connecticut metal radio programThe House Of Zazz’. In it, Michael discusses the new album, the lack of death growls, as well as some other semi-interesting shit.



Opeth streaming Heritage


Heritage, the latest album by Opeth (in stores September 20), is being streamed over at NPR.org. I’d like to let you know what it’s like, but unfortunately, I don’t have 2 hours to go through it. Snap.

You can find more details over at Blabbermouth, and if you happen to find time to give it a listen, let me know how you felt about it in the comments. Bye!


This week’s playlist

Have you ever wondered what we’ve been busy blasting here at the Dose of Metal office? Of course you haven’t, we don’t even have an office, but that doesn’t mean we can’t review some new metal tracks for you, and let you readers know what’s been hogging our stereo.

This week I decided to do something I rarely do – actually check out some new music. I sometimes get so caught up in my own ways, listening to the same bands over again, that I forget their is a wealth of other music out there.

Since this week’s feature is the first, I’m going to review some new tracks from the last month or so, but from next week I’m going to keep it to mainly just new tracks released in that given week. But enough about that, let’s just get on with it shall we? Make the motherflipping jump before I pop a cap in your ass.
