Live dosage

Because today is a slow news day, and I’m about as bored as my ex was whenever she was with me, it’s time for some random live Metal. And because I’m a great writer, I’m going to begin a sentence with the word “because” and then start another sentence with the word “and.”

What’s the live video for the day? Slaughter of the Soul by At the Gates, performed at 2008’s Wacken festival in Germany.

If you fancy seeing the reformed legends this year, you can check them out at Sweden’s Metaltown or England’s Bloodstock Open Air festival. More details can be found by googling “At the Gates [+]  dates 2011.”


Dose of Death

Why the cheesy image? Because I don’t take myself seriously, and neither should you. Welcome to my weekly feature where I’m normally drunk and/or hungover, and write some garbage about music in a way that makes me sound more knowledgeable than I really am. Or maybe I just fail at that..

The topic for this week: Death Metal. Admittedly, not my favorite genre, but one that fascinates me all the same. Death Metal is an extreme sub-genre of Metal (no, really?) that began in America (particularly Florida) in the 1980s. But I’m not fucking Wikipedia and this isn’t no history lesson, I’m just here for the music, and so should you be, so get your Death dosage after the jump. Don’t worry, an overdose won’t lead to death. Only awesomeness.


At The Gates head for Metaltown

Yup, the Swedish legends, At The Gates, are back (again) and have been confirmed for next year’s edition of the Metaltown festival, set to take place June 17-18, 2011 in Gothenburg, Sweden. The band loved their brief reunion in 2008 so much that they’ve decided to play a few more shows next year. Of course, if they love it so much, they could always reunite for real…

Anyways, the bill for Metaltown 2011 so far contains System of a Down, At the Gates, Cradle of Filth, Parkway Drive, and Raubtier. So at least now there’s one band to look forward to.
