Kerry King’s favorite things

Kerry King of Thrash legends Slayer recently spoke to Spin about his favorite things in the whole wide world and apparently he’s a lot more multifaceted than me (I like beer, sleep, Metal, boobs – that’s about it).

I don’t have the energy to copy and paste everything from the Spin article, besides it being a pointless task anyways, so here’s just a couple of excerpts:

“‘Becoming’ by Pantera. Whenever you get asked a question like that this, the answer is whatever comes to mind first. But it’s Pantera and [guitarist] Dimebag Darrell was my boy. It’s one of my favorite Pantera tunes.”

“AC/DC live with Bon Scott, but I did see the movie Beyond The Thunder, and it seems like he would be a cool dude to party with!”

“Moreliapythons.com. Because I am a better snake breeder than I am a guitar player!”

Wait, what? His favorite website isn’t Dose of Metal? blasphe-fucking-my! Wait, that doesn’t work at all.

Slayer is too metal. Technology can’t keep up.

The only thing more metal than Slayer is Dose Of Metal. And we love Slayer, so it’s a vicious circle of metal badassery that just fucks your shit up and makes your year be awesome.

Now the sentence above may not make sense at all, and I get that, I didn’t do too well in school… But the point is… Slayer is metal, and no device in the world is able to cope with that.

With that in mind, is it really a surprise that their P.A. went out during a Brazilian gig, while playing War Ensemble? No it isn’t. How much metal can one P.A. really handle?

Fortunately for the crowd, Tom Araya isn’t Justin Bieber or Ashlee Simpson, so instead of crying like a little bitch, he just kept rocking and helping the crowd sing the rest. This band rules. If you disagree, you fail at life.

Vid under the cut.


Friday Top 10: Albums of the 90s

So, many of us here at Dose of Metal are in our mid twenties, and we grew up with Metal in the ’90s. It may not go down as the greatest decade in Metal history, but fuck it, I love the ’90s. So many damn good albums came out of that decade, and that’s the purpose of this week’s Friday Top 10.

The list is pretty simple. Two rules: Only one album per band, to keep it varied, and secondly, Metal only, and that’s it. Other than that, I just blew this list out of my ass, because I’m awesome and you should listen to me.

So what are you waiting for? Make the jump for this week’s Friday Top 10.


Hey! It’s time for headlines!

Today is June 6th and that means it’s ‘Internatinal Day of Slayer’, a day where dumb/redneck Slayer fans dedicated Slayer fans get heavily intoxicated, listen to Slayer all day and randomly yell “SLAYER” every 10 minutes or so.  So, uh, yeah… SLAYER!!!!

Queensryche recently just released a brand spanking new song titled, ‘Around The World’.  The track comes off their upcoming new album, ‘Dedicated To Chaos’, which will be released on June 28th.  Interesting… Queensryche still make music?  Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy them.  Operation:Mindcrime and Empire are great records.  I’m just surprised they are still around.  I’ve not heard anything new from them in ages.   As usual, you have to “like” the band on Facebook to listen to the track.

Jane’s Addiction > Nirvava.  Well, that’s what Tom Morello basically said.  Tom was inducting Jane’s Addiction into the Guitar Center RockWalk and said

Nirvana often gets credit for being the first ‘alternative’ band to break through, the band that changed music and led rock out of the hair metal wilderness of the ’80s. That’s just not true. It was Jane’s Addicton: inspiring intelligent, furiously rocking and artistically deep.”  The thing is, I don’t really care.

He’s got a point.  The thing is, I don’t really care.  Nirvana died in 1994 and the latest Jane’s Addiction song sounds like this

Opeth, one of the best live bands around, have released a handful of North American dates for their upcoming tour with Katatonia.  Not a big Katatonia fan, but that’s not stopping me from going to see Opeth live for the 4th time.  Tour dates can be found here


Araya gets a key

For those of you who don’t know, Tom Araya was born in Viña del Mar, Chlie, but moved to the States when he was 5. He later fronted one of the most influential metal bands of all time. The definition of the American dream. Or day I say, the American NIGHTMARE? Since, you know, that sounds more metal and less effeminate.

Anyway, apparently the mayor of his birthplace, Virginia Reginato (haha, virgin), will give him the key to the city. I don’t know about you, but I didn’t know Chile had locks around their cities. There’s a cruel miner joke in there somewhere.

I’m kind of speechless; I don’t what to say. They’re probably gonna change the locks when they give me the key. [Laughs] It’s an honor. I think it’s great. I don’t have a reply. I’m more speechless than anything. It’s not something I expected. That’s never happened before. You see other people receive rewards like that, but it’s usually people of political status or someone that’s really done something for the community or done something important. I’m excited. I don’t know what to expect. . . All I can say is: thank you. That’s about it. said Tom while weeping.

Since Tom likes keys so much, I am officially giving him the key to Dose Of Metal. Tom, if you’re reading this, make the jump to see it.
