In other merch news: Slayer have released their own brand of condoms


You can read that again: Slayer have released their own brand of condoms. They’re apparently sold out (condoms), but you can check the product order page to see when they’ll restock.

This seriously has to be the dumbest idea for merchandise ever, simply due to the name. Slayer condoms. God-damn. I’ll leave the jokes up to you, but I do have to admit I found the description on their page funny: “For when you’re going South of Heaven!”

Check the condom page at Slayer Store to buy some., check the original article at Metal Hammer, and make the jump to see a photo.


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!


Slayer are fun fun fun

Ever heard of the Fun Fun Fun festival? No, me neither. Apparently it’s a lot of fun though. It’s set to take place November 4-6, 2011 at Auditorium Shores in Austin, Texas.

Heading south of fun, ready to reign in fun and partake in some fun illusion, Slayer have been announced to perform at the festival. I’m not entirely sure if I’m inadvertently suggesting the festival won’t be fun, or if it will indeed be fun, but I thought I was being clever.

I don’t really have anything to add, other than check out Blabbermouth for more details.


Friday Top 10: Notorious acts

It’s a late Friday evening, which means whilst everyone else is out either getting laid or getting drunk, I’m once again stuck inside, writing for Dose of Metal and publishing this week’s Friday Top 10.

Metal as a genre is undoubtedly one that is full of controversies, stories of self-mutilation, murder, drugs and religious intolerance. Sure, these are often unjustified criticisms directed at the genre by conservative morons, and I am by no means trying to play into these idiots’ hands, but the purpose of this Top 10 is going to revel in some of the “edgier” sides of Metal.

So if you’re interested in reading about some of the more controversial, notorious and outrageous Rock and Metal acts, then just make the motherfucking jump.


Big Four jam pro-shot footage

Professionally filmed video footage of the July 2 “Big Four” jam at Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany can be viewed above.

Towards the end of Metallica‘s set, Members of Anthrax and Megadeth joined Metallica on stage for a cover of Diamond Head‘s ‘Helpless’. Slayer weren’t available to take part because Dave was having another tattoo, Kerry was having a wank the band had to travel for their concert on the following night.

[insert prefunctory rant about The Big Four]
