Geezer Butler joins Dimebash 2012

Dimebag Darrell was one of the most exciting and talented metal guitarists of all time. It’s sad that we lost him in that terrible tragedy in 2004, because I think he had much more metal badassery to offer us, and instead of kicking ass on stage (maybe in a Pantera reunion), all we can do now is remember the good ol’ days when this guy was alive and showing those dubstep/nu-metal pussies how it’s done.

But I digress. Dimebash 2012 is happening, and a lot of great names are taking part. Let’s be honest, a few not-so-great names are in there, also, but Dime liked everybody, so in the spirit of Dime-goodness, I’m gonna let Serj slide.

Anyway, Geezer Butler will also be there, alongside people like Scott Ian, Tom Morello, Phil Demmel, Duff McKagan, Jerry Cantrell, Tim “Ripper” Owens, and others… Sounds pretty awesome.

Metal guitar legend “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott’s influence on the music community can never be fully estimated, but if the collection of artists and players at this year’s DimeBash 2011 is any indication, his legacy is as far-reaching and deeper than ever before. On December 14th, the world of hard rock and metal come together in a communion of thunderous songs and stories to tip its collective glass to one of the true masters of not only guitar, but music as a whole.

Show begins at 8 PM tonight, if you’re lucky enough to go there, make sure you honor Dime by drinking and enjoying metal. Getcha’ pull!


Frank Sinatra is metal

When you’re listening to Frank Sinatra, have you ever wondered what his songs would sound like if they were metalized? And I’m not talking about the Death Metal parody Ten Masked Men did a few years ago, I’m talking about serious Heavy fucking Metal. Well, fear not! Because there’s a tribute album in the works.

Devin Townsend, Joey Belladonna, Tim “Ripper” Owens and Dee Snider, among others, each recorded a Frank Sinatra song to make it metal and all of this will be released as an album on March 29, called ‘SIN-atra’. Check out the tracklist after the jump.


Ronnie James Dio tribute

Tim “Ripper” Owens, of Yngwie Malmsteen and Judas Priest fame, performed a cover of “Children Of The Sea” in tribute to the late Ronnie James Dio.

This took place at Tim’s Bratislava concert, and you can watch a video of it after the jump.
