Monday overdose: Heaven Shall Burn

Nothing like an overdose on a Monday. I mean, it’s the beginning of the week, many of use have to return to work after a weekend of prostitutes, mass alcohol consumption and wild partying. So overdosing on metal is never going to be anything but a great thing to get the week going.

Ripped off from Inspired by Guido’s post on Saturday on Cult of Luna, I present to you today, Heaven Shall Burn.

The band are often classified as metalcore, but personally I find them far closer to the style of melodic death — and to be honest even that’s a slight stretch. The band implement quite a few styles, even black metal, but all I care about is that they’re heavy as fuck.

One of my favorite songs is ‘Combat’ taken from the album Invictus (Iconoclast III) and you can watch the video above.


Saturday overdose: Cult of Luna

Just a couple of days ago, I started listening to Cult of Luna’s masterpiece Salvation again. For those who haven’t heard it yet, it’s killer! Get it, blast it, overdose on it.

To get you into the right mood for the weekend, we’ve got two Cult of Luna songs for you right now: ‘Vague Illusions’ and ‘Leave Me Here.’ The second of the two was a single in 2004, even though it was cut down from over 7 minutes to just over 4 minutes.

Some people don’t seem to have the patience to listen to a song that’s over 7 minutes long, but we are fucking metalheads. We’re used to lenghty songs. With ‘Vague Illusions,’ you get a song that’s over 10 minutes long. So you now have a soundtrack for the next 17 minutes to listen to while you read our site.

Weekly Dose of Metal: The Rotted

This week’s Dose of Metal comes from English death metal titans, The Rotted.

I don’t have much to say other than, the results are in, and I don’t have chlamydia. Yay! What better way to celebrate than a blast of The Rotted? You can listen to the song ‘Nothin’ but a Nosebleed’ from the 2008 album Get Dead or Die Trying below.


Weekly Dose of Metal: Fight

Following his shock departure from British legends Judas Priest, Rob Halford’s decision to explore other Metal territories (he was becoming far more interested in the thrash and groove styling of bands like Pantera) first became apparent in the form of Fight.

Fight‘s lineup consisted of Halford on vocals, Priest drummer Scott Travis on drums, Russ Parrish on guitar, Brian Tilse on guitar and keyboards and Jack “Jay Jay” Brown on bass guitar. The band released two studio albums in their time, both of which were critically acclaimed by the majority of the metal media and fans alike.

The track ‘Kill It’ taken from 1993’s War of Words can be heard below.

And because it’s also worth checking out, the power ballad ‘For All Eternity’ taken from the same album can also be heard. Hell, just listen to the whole album. It’s fucking brill!


Weekly Dose of Metal: Biomechanical

Another awesome dose of Metal for you this week. Awesome, because it’s me posting, and Metal, because this is Dose of Metal of course.

I’ve also learned an amazing new skill this week, which is great for a lazy, hungover, delinquent like myself. It’s called copy and pasting, and linking.
