Interview: Jed Simon (Zimmers Hole, ex-Strapping Young Lad)

Jed Simon is perhaps best known as the guitarist of Strapping Young Lad, but Jed is also active in Zimmers Hole and American Blood Cult and used to play with Tenet, Front Line Assembly and City Of Fire. With a resume like that, Jed has cemented his place in the olymp of heavy fucking metal.

When you’ve played with so many great bands, there is only one thing left to do… do an interview with Dose of Metal. That will certainly earn you a ‘Greatest human being… for a day’ award.

There’s not much else to say, but click ‘continue reading’ to read Dose of Metal’s interview with Jed fucking Simon.


Weak Recap: Mark your territory

Last week’s been all about Mark. He’s posted the most posts (read: all of them) because everyone else was busy. He’s taken one for the team and spent less time watching porn and more time writing for the site.

So it seems fitting that this weekend I get to interview him and ask him what he thinks on (mostly) his posts from this week.

Actually, we just have an order of interviewing each other for this self-indulgent and shitty awesome Weak Recap thing, and it just so happens that it’s Mark’s turn to be interviewed. Last week he interviewed me.

Make the jump and read the interview with the most amazing DoM writer (after myself and the other guys).

P.S. = That’s not Mark and his girlfriend above. Mark’s girlfriend is much fatter.


Blast from the Past: Strapping Young Lad – Alien

Strapping Young Lad, masters of chaos Metal (yes, I just made that term up – making up sub genres FTW!), and the brain child of manic, musical genius, Devin Townsend. The band formed in 1994, and created some of the most aggressive, schizophrenic and manic music until the band came to a natural end in 2007.

This week I’ve decided to review the band’s fourth studio album, Alien, so go ahead and make the jump for my verdict.


Weak Recap: First Class

Hey, guess who’s back, it’s those regular superheroes of the Metal community, Mark and Guido. Once again, we’ll be recapping what we’ve been up to this past week (usually a combination of sleeping, eating and masturbation – we all lead interesting lives here at Dose of Metal).

So, basically it’s that time of the week when someone massages my ego, I then in turn massage their ego, then they massage my… You know what, doesn’t matter. Make the jump to see my awesome interview with the awesome Guido.


Start your week with…

… a fucking SHITSTORM!

This week’s album of choice for me, is Strapping Young Lad‘s 2005 album Alien. If you want to start your week with a bang, there’s no better way than waking up to the sound of ‘Shitstorm.’ You can listen to the song below, but due to how shitty Youtube’s audio quality is, and especially with how thick and brutal the track is, I highly suggest you buy the album if you haven’t done so already.
