Friday Top 26: Heavy Metal Alphabet

We’ve done so many Top 10’s already, but this time we’ve decided to top it all with a Top 26. 26? There was something with 26, right? You got it! The Latin alphabet, that is used in most countries on this planet, has 26 letters.

So what are we going to do with these 26 letters? Well, every band has a bandname, and every bandname consists of letters. Can you follow me so far? We’re going to list the best band for each letter of the Latin alphabet (including their best song and album).

Ain’t that cool, now? It sure is. Make the jump for 26 letters and 26 ear-shattering Metal bands!


Fear Factory working on new album

Chocolate Factory

Fear Factory is one of those bands whose music is as heavy as its members. Which means really, really heavy. And we at Dose of Metal liked Mechanize as much as Dino likes to eat. Which means really, really much. That’s why we’re excited as fuck about Dino’s latest tweet:

“Working/Demoing new Fear Factory today”

which he posted a few minutes ago. I’ll speak for myself when I say this album gave me more orgasms than my blow up doll, so naturally, I can’t wait. How ’bout you?


Tuesday Trivia: Smelling Fear in the Teen Factory

Now, if the headline above isn’t just the greatest headline of all time, then I might just have to lay off the weed. And, depends on if you’re stoned yourself or not, you might have already figured out what, or rather whom, this article is about. But, just in case, I’ll break it down for you.

‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ + Fear Factory + weed = Smelling Fear in the Teen Factory

Worked for me.

But anyhow, now you know whom this article is about. Are you wondering just what the two (the Nirvana song and Fear Factory) have to do with each other? Well, make the jump to find out.


Friday Top 10: Most Influential Metal Bands

Remember when I posted my wacky comments on Kerrang! magazine’s Top 10 of the most influential rock bands of the last 30 years? Well, it’s time to post the metal equivalent of that Top 10, only we’re not limiting ourselves to time, so it’s the most influential bands of metal history.

Also, only metal bands can make the list. Not bands that aren’t metal themselves but influenced a wide array of metal bands, so exclude AC/DC, Deep Purple etc.

Now, make the jump to see if my list is better than Kerrang’s list.

It is.
