Friday Top 10: Notorious acts

It’s a late Friday evening, which means whilst everyone else is out either getting laid or getting drunk, I’m once again stuck inside, writing for Dose of Metal and publishing this week’s Friday Top 10.

Metal as a genre is undoubtedly one that is full of controversies, stories of self-mutilation, murder, drugs and religious intolerance. Sure, these are often unjustified criticisms directed at the genre by conservative morons, and I am by no means trying to play into these idiots’ hands, but the purpose of this Top 10 is going to revel in some of the “edgier” sides of Metal.

So if you’re interested in reading about some of the more controversial, notorious and outrageous Rock and Metal acts, then just make the motherfucking jump.


Friday Top 10: Love songs

People often prejudge Metal as being an “angry” and “monotonous” genre, which is only concerned with noise and aggression. However, I’m going to prove that this isn’t always the case, as the Metal genre also happens to be home to some of the most emotionally mature and beautiful love songs and ballads.

Want to check out a more emotional side to Metal, then get your dose of love after the jump!


Bloody wasps

Some deranged W.A.S.P. fan (oxymoron alert) bit the ear off some poor security guy at a W.A.S.P. C.O.N.C.E.R.T.

A stage guard had part of his ear bitten off during a concert by US hard-rock legends W.A.S.P. in Örebro, Sweden on Friday after he was attacked by a drunk 40-year-old man.

I felt horrible reading that. They called that band ‘legends’? My God, that is awful.


W.A.S.P. A.R.E. B.A.C.K.

Ah W.A.S.P., that lovely band who’s stage show has been known to feature naked chicks being whipped on torture racks (hey, they’ve sold it to me) and have album covers featuring beastiality imagery, have just kicked off a Euopean tour.

Unfortunately, their first show, this past Wednesday night (October 13) at Kvarteret in Bergen, Norway, was stopped after just a few seconds. Why? Because of naked chicks? Because the frontman hurled some live rats into a meat grinder and sprayed the audiance with the blood? No, the show was stopped because a fire alarm went off. Don’t worry though, it soon was put back on track.

Apparently the show was an intimate performance with a capacity of just 400. They call it intimate, we call it N.O. O.N.E. C.A.R.E.S. A.N.Y.M.O.R.E.
