Weak Recap: Pop a recap in yo ass, fool

Yo yo. From the slums of Shaolin, Dose of Metal strikes again!

We from the streets, yo. Break yo’self!

This Sunday, takin’ on the events of last week, straight from the ghetto — word up.

Sorry guys, just really tired and uninspired, so I went with a ‘street’ approach, just to relate to hip-hop fans who might be magically lost here. Make the jump and see what happened this week.


Deftones are bringing vinyl back

Deftones are a band that was mildly popular in the late 90s/early 2000s. You know, back when nu-metal was big.

Apparently they want to acknowledge the nostalgia factor that still keeps them going in 2011, by releasing their albums on vinyl, yet another nostalgic object which only sells because people are, well, nostalgic.

This fall, Reprise Records will release a limited edition vinyl box set from Deftones. ‘Deftones: The Vinyl Collection, 1995 – 2011’ will be available October 25 exclusively via Deftones.com and BecauseSoundMatters.com. The collection is a seven-album (8 LP) retrospective containing the band’s six studio albums — 1995’s ‘Adrenaline,’ 1997’s ‘Around The Fur,’ 2000’s ‘White Pony,’ 2003’s ‘Deftones,’ 2006’s ‘Saturday Night Wrist,’ and 2010’s ‘Diamond Eyes,’ and the limited-edition 2011 Record Store Day release ‘Covers.’

Wow, that sounds like a great thing to buy, if you have the musical tastes of a prepubescent boy stuck in 2001.


We Came As Romans are Mis/understood, Deftones hit Bodom

Yo yo yo, quick video update: We Came As Romans have just released a video for Mis/Understanding, and it’s hilarious. And very retarded, which adds even more laughs to the mix. Need I say the humor is completely unintentional? They’ve single-handedly made guitar spins uncool forever, synchronized crabcore jumps even funnier, and ruined the idea of a moshpit forever. Seriously, just what the fuck is going on at 2:22? I mean, if they brought some special ed class to the show, that’s awfully nice of them, but somehow I don’t think that’s the case, which makes it just awful.

Second video for today is a fan filmed footage of a Deftones show that took place in Helsinki. Why are we bothering with this one? Because Mr. Children of Bodom, Alexi Laiho, joined them on stage for the performance of Roots. Odd mix, and you can see the results after the jump.



Keeping up with horrible puns, here’s another post. I combined audio and panorama, and got an ‘awesome’ title — audiorama. One more? I combined horrible and comedy, and got the following — Dane Cook. Press.

The thing above is the new Deftones video for Beauty School, so we even have a little videorama going on, nice. If you make the jump, you’ll get to hear/see a bunch of other lame ones! Awesome!


Deftones guitarist also has a side project!

Stephen Carpenter

We’ve covered Sol Invicto before, when they released a remix of Deftones‘ Diamond Eyes (it was for charity, so we’ll forgive them). Hot on the heels of Chino Moreno’s recently released Crosses (if you expect me to copy paste those ASCII crosses, you can suck my pretty penis), another EP by another Deftones member sees the light on this day.

In case you’re slow, Sol Invicto is a side project by another member of the Deftones, and it’s none other than Stephen Carpenter, the dude with the most horror name ever. You know, the fat one. The really fat one. You can download the EP for free right here, and it’s supposed to be some experimental drum and bass shit.

The band also announced they’ll release a few more EPs in the following months, so be ready for a few more posts which aren’t really related to this website and you could have most likely lived without.
