Friday Top 10: Live videos I enjoy

It’s a very slow Friday here at the Dose of Metal office, probably because we don’t have one.

Anyway, since we don’t have a great Top 10 for today, instead of just not posting one, I’ve decided to do a half-assed one. Well, everything on this site is half-assed, so this would be more of a ‘quarter-assed’ article.

So this is a list of ten live videos I enjoy. If you can’t cope with so much mediocrity, please understand that it’s not our fault our moms drank vodka during our pregnancies.

We also used that photo of a crowd that a reader sent to us, just to show how racially diverse we are, yo.


Weak Recap: We be winning, playa

It’s no secret that we’re amazing, and we’re pretty modest about it, too. I mean, the rest of the guys who write for this site aren’t really that awesome, but compared to your boring ass, they’re Gods. I, on the other hand, am absolutely sublime. I truly believe a few decades from now people will be quoting my posts and giving them as examples of literary genius.

So why would I, of all people, interview the other writers for this site? Isn’t it a bit like Mozart interviewing Linkin Park? Yes it is, but unlike Mozart, I am pretty humble. And good looking.

Anyway, make the jump and read my interview with some of metal’s worst writers… Ever.


No one knows QOTSA. Not even Dave.

Hey, do you know Queens Of The Stone Age‘s ‘No One Knows’ song? I do, but Dave Mustaine doesn’t. At least not by name, which is pretty ironic if you think about it.

When asked in a previous interview what his new album sounds like, Dave described it as a ‘Black Sabbath with a little bit of Queens Of The Stone Age‘ — which I can’t even imagine, really. But in another interview, Dave clears it all up (actually, no he doesn’t).

Yeah, that’s a really bad quote that’s gotten out there. What I said was that it’s got some really super modern sounds , because that’s Johnny (K, producer)’s style. The sounds themselves ARE – LIKE – OLD – SABBATH! Right? Now, that doesn’t mean that the songs are like old Sabbath songs. The sound is. Some of the guitars. But when you put the guitars all together, you put the bass in there, and the drums, and you add the vocals, it doesn’t sound the same at all. And what I had said about Queens Of The Stone Age, I was talking about guitar sounds. I don’t know that band at all! I know one song. (He sings the riff from ‘No One Knows’)

Read full interview here.

That makes a lot of sense now, doesn’t it? Didn’t think so. When are musicians gonna stop describing their upcoming albums as “<insert band here> meets <insert another band here>”? It will only enrage, confuse and annoy the fans.

But don’t worry, according to the same interview, the album will be ‘the best thing Dave has done in a long time.’ And we all know Dave likes to keep it modest, so if he says it’s the best, it has to be.  Right? RIGHT?

Make the jump to see the video for the song Dave was humming. It’s actually one of my favorite QOTSA songs.


Saturday morning headlines!

Soundgarden have released tour dates for their upcoming North American tour. I grew up with Soundgarden so seeing them live is a no-brainer. However, my big complaint is Coheed and Cambria opening at the show i’m attending, while The Mars Volta, Mastodon and Queens Of The Stone Age will be at other shows of the tour. Lame. More information can be found here.

The trailer for The Big Four show at Yankee Stadium (pictured above) has been posted online and you can view it here. It was pretty cool, but the “Four of the heaviest bands of all time” slogan made me roll on the floor laughing my ass off  (what can I say, I’m more of an metal elitist than everyone at Metal Archives).

Melodic death metal act Arch Enemy have uploaded a new song titled ‘Blood Stained Cross’, which is from their upcoming new album Khaos Legions. You can listen to the song here. Oops. Sorry, I meant here.

Mötley Crüe bassiest Nikki Sixx recently told about.com “I think our best record is still in us.” — I like Nikki, I really do. I think he’s a pretty cool guy. But after reading that, I have a feeling he is back on the heroin for that interview and thinking it’s 1983.


QOTSA perform on Conan

Queens Of The Stone Age performed on Conan Thursday night… Well, not literally on Conan, just on his show. Wow, look at you horny little fuckers immediately assuming I was talking about sex. Get some help, Jesus… You’re sick.

Anyway, make the jump to see them playing “If Only” on the ridiculously hideous Team Coco player. We need our own damn player up in this biatch.
