Big 1 + 3 played New York

Last night marked The Big 4 playing the East Coast for the first time, which means I now have to cover it. MetalSucks and Metal Injection did the unthinkable and actually live-blogged a live show, which is kinda lame if you ask me, but then again, I get a free article out of this, so it’s a win for me.

To sum it up: same old same old, Gary Holt instead of Jeff Hanneman, Motorhead‘s Overkill instead of Am I Evil and members of Exodus joining the stage for that performance as well? (and you can see the clip of that above). That is all. We are now anxiously awaiting for The Big Four to announce the first show on the Moon, while this wave is still fresh for riding… Kidding aside, I actually enjoyed the mashup performance a lot, even with 30 people on stage.

As I Lay Dying celebrate anniversary in style

And when I say “style”, I mean no style what so ever.

The hugely successful As I Lay Dying will soon be reaching their tenth anniversary on the scene, and to celebrate their accomplishments and give something back to the fans who have supported them, As I Lay Dying will be releasing a special album, titled Decas (I think that’s probably Latin for ten, but have no idea since I can’t read).

The album will contain three brand new tracks (cool enough), four cover songs (meh), and five remixes (yuck!). Decas will be out November 8 in North America, and will include covers of Judas Priest and Slayer. The full tracklisting can be found after the jump, along with a picture of a cat for no particular reason.*

The Big Four Guitar World cover is here

The Big Four are featured in a Guitar World issue and we got the cover exclusively! If by ‘exclusively’ you mean ‘stolen from Blabbermouth.’ The cover is after the jump, and by the looks of it, the magazine itself features a poster of Dave and Jaymz fist-bumping each other. Sounds awesome, too bad this isn’t 1985.

Anyway, the site Glenrock Patch conducted an interview with Scott Ian, Tom Araya and David Ellefson about The Big Four and you guessed it, same type of questions, same type of answers. Read the predictable article here.

If you’re going to the NY Big Four show, we’re hosting a party on Skype for you guys, we can all like, videochat and drink beer together!!! [/lies]

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: Solo style

Mouthful of metal

Hey, it’s another Sunday, and you know what that means, time for your favorite weekly interview. The one we do with each other.

Except, you’re not getting one.

Apparently, other people at Dose of Metal obviously have this thing called “life” and they’re too busy with their “girlfriends.” You know where that leaves me? Same place I was last week — alone in the room, wishing I had enough money to buy myself a plastic one.

I’m just kidding, blow up dolls are for pussies, real men pleasure themselves. And by that, I don’t mean I can reach my penis with my mouth. I just make the best use of my hands. Speaking of my hands and wonderful results, make the jump to read my solo recap.
