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.


Weak Recap: First Class

Hey, guess who’s back, it’s those regular superheroes of the Metal community, Mark and Guido. Once again, we’ll be recapping what we’ve been up to this past week (usually a combination of sleeping, eating and masturbation – we all lead interesting lives here at Dose of Metal).

So, basically it’s that time of the week when someone massages my ego, I then in turn massage their ego, then they massage my… You know what, doesn’t matter. Make the jump to see my awesome interview with the awesome Guido.


Trent Reznor gets in on the covers

There’s something about today and Led Zeppelin‘s ‘Immigrant Song’ because not only have Enslaved covered it, but now Trent Reznor has got in on the action.

So you’ve had your Metal approach and now you can have your 1990s Sega style 8 bit version, aren’t you lucky?

Trent Reznor is working with Atticus Ross on the score to the David Fincher (they’re like BFFs now apparently) directed, ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’.  The Led Zeppelin cover includes a collaboration with Yeah Yeah Yeah’s singer Karen O. Check it out above. Or don’t, otherwise you could be like me asking yourself why you stopped watching porn to listen to that crap. Sigh, the things I do for this site.


Trent wins Golden Globe

If you had any doubts about Hollywood’s appreciation of talent, they will be shattered right now. Trent just won the Golden Globe for best soundtrack.

I mean, not that the Golden Globes were ever too trustworthy,  you can take out the judges to wine, dine and bribe them, so obviously everyone behind The Social Network did a great campaign since they won everything, but still, this guy should be winning Nintendo’s Retro SNES Soundtrack awards or something.

Don’t get me wrong, The Social Network was a decent flick and I am a big David Fincher fan, it’s just annoying seeing all his other great films get snubbed and this pretty average film get all the praise. I’m happy any time I see Fincher winning awards for his work, I just wish he’d win them for movies like Fight Club. Now THAT was a good film… With a good soundtrack.


Trent Reznor is ruining another film

I don’t know about you guys, but watching ‘The Social Network‘ with Trent‘s soundtrack felt like trying to watch a movie with someone blasting NIN next door. So you can see why I’m so excited to report that he is scoring yet another film.

Trent Reznor revealed in a streaming video interview with The New York Times that he is composing the score for “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”, the American film version of the best-selling thriller about an underground computer hacker teaming with a journalist to investigate a dark conspiracy. The director of the movie is David Fincher.”

Watch interview after the jump.

I have an idea. Trent should just score every movie that comes out. Or they could come out without a soundtrack and you just take your iPod in the cinema and blast some NIN. It all sounds the fucking same, anyway.
