Rob Zombie and Dave Mustaine have one thing in common. They’re both involved in unintentionally hilarious movies. Dave was in Some Kind of Monster, Rob directed a few ‘horror’ films.
But now the guys have two things in common: They’re touring together!

May 11 – Holmdel, NJ @ PNC Bank Arts Center
May 12 – Scranton, PA @ Toyota Pavilion
May 16 – Pittsburgh, PA @ Stage AE
May 18 – Grand Rapids, MI @ The Deltaplex
May 20 – Columbus, OH @ Rock On The Range
May 22 – La Crosse, WI @ La Crosse Center
May 24 – Sioux City, IA @ Tyson Center
May 25 – Wichita, KS @ Hartman Arena
May 26 – Pryor, OK @ Rocklahoma
I’m seeing Megadeth again this summer. Not much else to say, really. I just am.
John 5, the “awesome” guitarist that plays in not-so-awesome bands (ex-Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie), has a new album coming out. No one knows exactly why, but he’s offering the first single for purchase on Amazon, and it’s a cover of Micheal Jackson’s hit Beat It.
You can hear a preview there, and while the song sounds decent, his announcement for the new album isn’t:
I have an album called ‘God Told Me To’ [coming out] and it’s half heavy and it’s half acoustic, which I’ve never done before. I’m doing a cover of Michael Jacksons’s ‘Beat It’, an instrumental version of it. And it’s gonna be amazing. I’m really excited about this record ’cause of the acoustic stuff, ’cause I’ve never done that before. And it’s gonne be awesome. I’m so excited for this to come out. I think I’m gonna put a [making-of] DVD out with it. People always like to see how I do things and stuff.
Usually when someone throws around words like awesome and amazing, it’s us, talking about this site. And that’s cool because we’re a bunch of assholes and we admit it. This guy is actually serious. You can see the cover for the single after the jump.
A Rob Zombie interview? It’s either 1999 or I’ve slipped into a time vortex and have been taken to a time when music was a lot shitter. What, neither?? You mean Rob Zombie is still relevant? Well I’ll be damned… I thought it was all about gay vampire pretty boys and pedophile werewolves (have you read/seen Twilight? I’m not even making that up) these days. Guess I was wrong, zombies can still have success.
I have no idea what the interview is about, I didn’t watch it, nor did I even read the story on Blabbermouth, but apparently the interview occurred in Victoria. So all I’m wondering is who’s Victoria and is she hot?
The interview was conducted by /A\ and can be watched above.
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.
We’ve had a lot of news today, but make no mistake about it, it’s still been a shit day. So enjoy these boring headlines as there’s not much else to post right now.
Machine Head‘s Robb Flynn (pictured above) says he doesn’t time songs when he’s writing them with his band. They’re just going off the vibe. He also calls Metallica their masters.
Meshuggah should buy me a new keyboard, because their names are a fucking mess. Guitarist Mårten Hagström (what?) talked to some Romanian chick about their upcoming album. I didn’t really read the interview, and neither should you.
This Is Hell have entered the studio for a new album. According to their vocalist, ‘they can’t wait’ — Neither can I. I want the record out as soon as possible, because I want to stop wanting to avoid music sites in fear of having to listen to it.
Yngwie Malmsteen has such an ego, he makes Dave Mustaine look like Gandhi. Apparently he’s touring North America now, so you can check out the dates right here. Problem is, I don’t know if those are concert dates, or just McDonald’s restaurants Yngwie plans to eat at.
Phil Labonte of All That Remains is auctioning his shoes. Now, I don’t want to be mean, cause this is for charity, but who the hell would pay a few hundred bucks for used footwear? If you can answer that question, then go here and start bidding.
Rob Zombie says he doesn’t really think of music when he’s not working on it. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t think of music, ever, and he has 4 studio albums that stand behind that statement.
That’s it for now, join us next time for more boring fucking headlines.

Rob Zombie, otherwise known as ‘that dude from the 90s’ (no, not Fred Durst), has defended his decision to get behind the camera for a commercial for laundry detergent Woolite and says he isn’t a sell out.
Well it’s not like he’s biased though, and I’m sure he didn’t take a huge payment from the company for the commercial. Nah, he did it out of the goodness of his little zombie heart, bless him.
More crap at Blabbermouth.
Everyone should like live videos right? I know it’s bit like comparing porn to real sex, or watching sports to playing sports (actually that last analogy doesn’t work at all), but you can’t always make it to your favorite gigs or festivals, can you?
So luckily, fans of bands like Opeth, Mastodon, Kreator, Amorphis, and many more, can check their live performances at today’s Graspop Metal Meeting festival in Belgium today over at Skynet.be.
The schedule is as follows:
Amorphis 14:00 – 14:45
Kreator 14:50 – 15:40
Moonsorrow 15:45 – 16:30
Mastodon 16:35 – 17:35
Legion of the Damned 17:40 – 18:30
Avenged Sevenfold 18:35 – 19:35
Opeth 19:40 – 20:40
Rob Zombie 20:45 – 22:00
Cavalera Conspiracy 22:05 – 23:05
Muppet character bassist, Piggy D, is the victim of a victimless crime. His mask got stolen in Spain, hence the Spanish title. Ole.
Piggy, in true ‘rockstar’ fashion, got some very warm thoughts towards the thief:
“Dear prick who stole my skull mask from the stage in Spain, [I] hope [you] get the black plague, and all your teeth fall out of your head. GFYS.“
Read full article here.
Two things. One: Isn’t GFY enough? Yourself is a single word, why would he need the S? Two: If you do find the mask, make sure you contact him here.
Also, if you’re wondering what the title means, it’s “Where are the thieves?” or something. It’s the title of a Shakira album, not that I’d know anything about that. I swear to God I’m a metalhead. You don’t believe me? Fuck you, I don’t have anything to prove to you…

The UK’s Metal Hammer hosted their very “special” awards ceremony, The Golden Gods, last night. We at Dose of Metal at times have considered hosting our own awards ceremony, but ultimately we’re just not self-indulgent or pretentious enough to attempt such a feat. Actually, it’s just we’re too lazy, poor and not big enough to pull it off. Instead though, we can just look at other award ceremonies, and criticize them, which is exactly what I’m going to be doing.
Winners include Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Rob Zombie and many more. Find the complete results, plus my own little thoughts and criticism below.
* Best New Band – The Damned Things —- Meh, debut was catchy, but overall fairly mediocre.
* Metal As F*ck – Nergal (Behemoth) —- No argument here.
* Best Underground – Primordial —- Also no arguments here.
* Dimebag Darrell Shredder(s) – Gus G. (FIREWIND, OZZY OSBOURNE) —- Yeah, Gus is pretty awesome.
* Breakthrough Artist – Sabaton —- Who??
* Best UK Band – Iron Maiden —- Of course. Question though, do Iron Maiden win every year?
* Best Live Band – Skindred —- Skindred? Fuck off.
* Inspiration Award – Twister Sister —- Twisted Sister? No thanks
* Best International Band – Avenged Sevenfold —- Fuck off.
* Best Album – “Absolute Dissent” by Killing Joke —- Haven’t heard it yet, so unsure on this one, but I bet there’s better.
* Event of the Year – “The Big 4” coming together for first time ever in the U.K. —- Yeah, as a UK citizen, this is awesome.
* Riff Lord(s) – Pepper Keenan and Kirk Windstein (DOWN) — Down are great, but there’s a lot of riff lords I guess.
* Spirit of Hammer – Diamond Head — Yeah, I guess I’m cool with this.
* Icons – Judas Priest —- Undeniably deserving of the title.
* Golden God – Rob Zombie —- Rob Zombie sucks.
