Metal Hammer’s Golden God results

The UK’s Metal Hammer hosted their very “special” awards ceremony, The Golden Gods, last night. We at Dose of Metal at times have considered hosting our own awards ceremony, but ultimately we’re just not self-indulgent or pretentious enough to attempt such a feat. Actually, it’s just we’re too lazy, poor and not big enough to pull it off. Instead though, we can just look at other award ceremonies, and criticize them, which is exactly what I’m going to be doing.

Winners include Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Rob Zombie and many more. Find the complete results, plus my own little thoughts and criticism below.

* Best New Band – The Damned Things —- Meh, debut was catchy, but overall fairly mediocre.
* Metal As F*ck – Nergal (Behemoth) —- No argument here.
* Best Underground – Primordial —- Also no arguments here.
* Dimebag Darrell Shredder(s) – Gus G. (FIREWIND, OZZY OSBOURNE) —- Yeah, Gus is pretty awesome.
* Breakthrough Artist – Sabaton —- Who??
* Best UK Band – Iron Maiden —- Of course. Question though, do Iron Maiden win every year? 😛
* Best Live Band – Skindred —- Skindred? Fuck off.
* Inspiration Award – Twister Sister —- Twisted Sister? No thanks
* Best International Band – Avenged Sevenfold —- Fuck off.
* Best Album – “Absolute Dissent” by Killing Joke —- Haven’t heard it yet, so unsure on this one, but I bet there’s better.
* Event of the Year – “The Big 4” coming together for first time ever in the U.K. —- Yeah, as a UK citizen, this is awesome.
* Riff Lord(s) – Pepper Keenan and Kirk Windstein (DOWN) — Down are great, but there’s a lot of riff lords I guess.
* Spirit of Hammer – Diamond Head — Yeah, I guess I’m cool with this.
* Icons – Judas Priest —- Undeniably deserving of the title.
* Golden God – Rob Zombie —- Rob Zombie sucks.


WAR! New Sabaton video

What can you expect from a music video of a band that, pretty much, solely sings about war? Well, I won’t answer that question. Just watch the video above.

If you’re wondering why the title of the video says “2010,” don’t worry. It didn’t take us half a year to finally write about it. The song, ‘Screaming Eagles,’ is taken from Sabaton’s 2010 album Coat Of Arms and the video was shot in 2010. You see, it didn’t take us half a year to write about it. It just took them half a year to release it.

It is forgiven as soon as you hit the play button though, because the video — and especially the song — kick massive amounts of ass.


Evergrey are going on tour

A pretty decent tour is happening throughout Canada and the United States this fall.  Progressive metal giants Evergrey are headlining the tour and they’re bringing out Swedish metal band Sabaton, video game geeks Powerglove, a band that really wants to sound like Children of Bodom named Black Guard and The Absence, who quite frankly just bore me to death.

Interview: Joakim Broden (Sabaton)

The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Sabaton is “Through the gates of hell as we make our way to heaven. Through the Nazi lines. Primo victoria!” but that’s not all that members of Sabaton have to say, as we can prove with the following interview with their singer Joakim Brodén.
