Slipknot have a photo exhibition

I have to admit, Slipknot do photograph well with the masks. That’s the only thing I like about this gimmick, I mean look at the photo above, it’s rather cool. But is it cool enough to warrant a photo exhibition? I don’t think so, but others may disagree:

‘Kerrang! Presents: Slipknot – A Photographic Exhibition by Paul Harries Sponsored By Relentless Energy Drink,’ which was held at the Strand Gallery from July 12 to July 24, featured over 60 photographs spanning Paul Harries’ 12 years of unparalleled access to the Iowan metal legends. Now that the exhibition has closed, Paul has made the shots available to view online.

Read full article here. Photos are here.

Yeah, they could have used a shorter title, don’t you think? That’s not even a title, it’s a novel.

Here at Dose of Metal, we’re opening our own photo exhibition. It’s called ‘Dose Of Metal! Presents: Photos – A photographic journey through a lot of useless photos no one gives a fuck about sponsored by Dose Of Metal.’ Attend, or die.


Weak Recap: Simo’s back!

You guys remember Simo, right? He took a two-month break from the interwebz, to see if this ‘real life’ thing is as good as people say it is. Once he realized talking to a girl in real life is not as easy as on Facebook, he came back. With a vengeance.

Okay, so maybe not with a vengeance, but he came back. And now I get to interview him, which is not an honor and a privilege.

We’ll talk about a lot of things, a lot of boring things, so I’m not gonna lie to you… It will be a pretty boring article, so don’t bother reading this further. It will only make you waste a lot of valuable time.

But if you’ve got nothing better to do, make the jump and read what two people who rarely get laid (and when they do, it ends in tears) have to say about this past week’s articles.

Enjoy! (you won’t, trust me, but I like being optimistic)


Back when they were still good

Remember this little gem? The post that was mostly used as filler a well written, informative article to bitch about point out the bands that were once good, but the quality of their output has since subsided.

I decided to resurrect it for no other reason than I feel like it. Will I keep it up? I have no idea.

This week, it’s that small underground Metal act, Slipknot. You may have heard of them. The music on their last album sucked. Their music from long ago, however, did not. In fact, it kicked ass. Listen below to one of my favorite tracks by the ‘knot.


Corey Talyor more positive about Slipknot

Drama, drama, drama. Drama makes the world go around, and Slipknot too, evidently.

After the on going ‘will Corey continue with Slipknot or instead pursue a pop career in a supergroup made up of The Jonas Brothers and Justin Beiber?’ saga, and with words from drummer Joey implying the band would continue with or without Taylor, it seems Corey is finally much more ‘positive’ about the band after these European shows.

According to Blabbermouth though, despite the new found positiveness in regards to Slipknot‘s return, Corey is still not keen on the idea of recording another album.

This, of course, presents some pros and cons however. Pro – No more shitty Slipknot albums in the vein of All Hope is Gone. Corey you’ve lost all your metal cred, so don’t even try to fake it. Con – Crap, this means more Stone Sour, doesn’t it?


Corey Taylor hearts Justin Bieber

Okay, the title may be a bit misleading, but that’s what we do here — we mislead people.

You know that Justin Bieber / Slipknot mash-up clip? Make the jump to see it, if you don’t. It’s called ‘Psychosocial Baby’ and it’s pretty bad. And it’s not bad because it has Bieber in it, it’s bad because it has Bieber AND Slipknot in it. That’s like a double assault on your ears.

Corey loves it though. He finds it ‘beautiful’ and ‘fucking amazing,’ so that should give you a clue as to why Stone Sour sounds the way it does.

I thought it was great. I was just like, ‘This is fucking beautiful.’ And the way it was put together… I mean, it was so pulled apart and put back together. [Laughs] I was like, ‘This is awesome!’ And so many kids were pissed off about it that it makes me laugh. I’m like, ‘This is fucking amazing!’

You either get it or you don’t. And that’s that thing, there’s that line. So many people take it way too seriously. It’s just like, ‘God, wear a helmet. Figure it out.’

Full interview after the jump.

In fairness, the video is put together rather well. Clearly the person responsible for it has a lot of talent. So Corey is just praising the concept, not Bieber himself, right? Wrong:

The thing that really bothers me about so many people who talk shit about Justin Bieber — and I’m not saying I’m a fan — but the kid’s got talent. He’s got more talent than a lot of the bands that are signed out there. And you may hear the Auto-Tuning in his voice, but he doesn’t need it. He can dance, he can play, he can sing… Whatever… I don’t care. My son and my niece may love him to death, but at the end of the day, it’s like, who am I to question their taste

You tell ’em, Corey. Who do these assholes think they are, to question YOUR taste in pop music. You like Justin Bieber, that’s fine… Some people like Stone Sour, that’s fine as well. I’m more of a Britney guy myself, she used to be hot back in the day and all.

But hey, I’m being an asshole, right? Corey is just nice to this kid cause he’s 16, he wouldn’t just insult a young kid, right? Wrong:

Now, if you wanna talk about Rebecca Black. If I hear that [Friday] song again, I will probably beat the shit out of a nun, I’m telling you right now. That song’s so bad. I mean, it’s insultingly bad. And the lyrics are something out of ‘Sesame Street’… ”C’ is for cooking, back seat, front seat…’ Are you kidding me? Get the fuck out of my face with that shit!

Way to go, Corey. That 14 year old kid has to be put in her place. Don’t let her get away with her crappy lyrics. She will never be a brilliant lyricist and come up with stuff like “People = shit, whatcha’ gonna do? People = shit, cuz I’m not afraid of you.”

That would never be on Sesame Street. Interview clips and mash-up, right under the cut.
