Weekly Dose of Metal: Fight

Following his shock departure from British legends Judas Priest, Rob Halford’s decision to explore other Metal territories (he was becoming far more interested in the thrash and groove styling of bands like Pantera) first became apparent in the form of Fight.

Fight‘s lineup consisted of Halford on vocals, Priest drummer Scott Travis on drums, Russ Parrish on guitar, Brian Tilse on guitar and keyboards and Jack “Jay Jay” Brown on bass guitar. The band released two studio albums in their time, both of which were critically acclaimed by the majority of the metal media and fans alike.

The track ‘Kill It’ taken from 1993’s War of Words can be heard below.

And because it’s also worth checking out, the power ballad ‘For All Eternity’ taken from the same album can also be heard. Hell, just listen to the whole album. It’s fucking brill!


When trying to look cool goes wrong

I’ve seen Judas Priest live twice, so I always wondered if his bike ever malfunctioned, or if it just embarrassed him in any way during his ‘oh, look at me! I’m a biker!’ moment on stage.

Guess my question has been answered with a video.

Check the video above and laugh your ass off. I don’t think he got hurt (didn’t check, I really don’t want to play paramedic with him, if you know what I mean), so you can sleep tonight after laughing at another man’s misfortune.

The fall is at around 0:22, by the way.


Tuesday Trivia: Metal games


Hey, what’s your favorite metal game? Mine include:

  • moshing with metal attachements on my boots
  • throwing a glass beer bottle at a concert behind me and seeing how many people bleed
  • kicking a wigger

I’m kidding of course. Except maybe for the last one. The games we’ll be covering today have nothing to do with concerts. In fact, they’re my favorite games — the ones that don’t make you leave the house. Make the jump and get familiar with some of the heavy metal video games.


Someone get Rob a Brit

No, Rob Halford isn’t looking for a British lover, he’s looking for a Brit award.

Legendary metal act Judas Priest were recently awarded with a Grammy award (which are honestly pretty lame, let’s be honest) and now the guy wants some recognition from his home country, from the British counterpart, the Brit awards. Seems only fair?

The only problem is The Brit Awards are a complete fix and only celebrate the shittiest of shitty artists. Not even I, some socially challenged, alleged “writer” for Dose of Metal, would accept a lame Brit award. Well, ok, that’s a lie – I would, but only because it would make my mom proud and I could then sell the award on Ebay.

If you want to read more on the story, and less on my lame rantings, then why not read the original article at blabbermouth. It’s not as good as porn, but it won’t get you into trouble.


Rob Halford knows his shit

If you thought the only things Rob Halford was knowledgeable on are music, ageing with grace, and NASCAR, then you are wrong. Because the Metal legend also knows his sports shit. Well so I’ve been told anyways.

According to Blabbermouth, Rob recently talked with TheScore.com to discuss his other passion, sports. The Judas Priest frontman  is an avid baseball and basketball fan, and is also developing a taste for hockey, saying the sport’s balls-out style reminds him of rock and roll. And of course, Rob is a great fan of balls being out.
