5 albums to rock your weekend

Picture this: It’s a Saturday night, you’re all alone eating cold pizza, watching crappy television. Everyone else is out having a good night, and you’re home alone crying and using the tears as lubricant to masturbate with. Life couldn’t get any worse, right?

Wrong, you could be me. The picture above is of what is commonly known as a ‘female’. I’ve heard of them before, although I have yet to see or speak to one. But enough about that. If you’ve got nothing to do on this Saturday evening, why not join me as I list five perfect Metal albums that should brighten up your day.

So what are you waiting for? Make the jump in front of a car. I know I will soon.


Ultimate Dio collection heading your way

It wasn’t that long ago that I reviewed The Collection by Dio, which I gave a brilliant 4 and a half skulls out of 5. Don’t ask me how you can get half a skull though, I’ve never seen anyone cut a skull in half before, but I somehow managed to do it for this review. One of  the reasons I gave it half a skull shy of a full 5, however, was that I would have liked to have a full collection of all of Ronnie James Dios music, and not just a collection limited to his solo material.

Lucky me then, and lucky you, because as Metal Hammer have reported, a double-disc compilation that spans the entire career of the late Ronnie James Dio has been announced for release in June. I’m literally jumping for joy, although that may also have something to do with the pube lice I’ve caught. Check out the awesome tracklisting after the jump.


Ever wanted to see Ozzy open a CD box?

Me neither, that’s why we won’t be looking at it here. Here’s a video mashup of Ozzy and Dio performing a true classic. Yeah, inspired by Guido’s post earlier today, I’m trying to stir some shit up. Or am I just remembering our fallen metal heroes? Good metalhead. Fight. Sit.

But, to address a certain doubt that arose once I saw the article promoting some new Ozzy shit, yes, he can actually open a CD/DVD/deluxe boxset for whatever he just released, without medical assistance. Cool, huh?


It’s been a year already…

On May 16 2010, the world lost another Metal God. His name is Ronnie James Dio and he will always live on through his musical legacy.

It’s kind of crazy to think how fast time flies, can’t believe it’s been a full year since one of the worst news in metal history.

Rest in peace, Dio.


Blast from the Past: Black Sabbath – Heaven and Hell

Towards the end of the 1970s, Black Sabbath were in a real turmoil. The band had been falling apart for years, with addiction consuming Ozzy and the band, and as a result of the band’s problems, the quality of the music was dramatically taking a dive. After the release of 1978’s poorly received Never Say Die, as stated by Iommi, ironically the band were actually dying. Ozzy was fired and everyone assumed the band would end.

As we all know though, the band didn’t end, and instead, with the help of Ronnie James Dio, they went on to release a new album, known as Heaven and Hell. I’m here to take an objective and honest hard look at the album and deliver to you a review on the 1980 album. How does it compare to the Ozzy albums? Read my review after the jump.
