Twisted Sista’ interview… In 2011

Deep Purple, Queen, Twisted Sister… We’re almost in 2012 yet we’re talking about bands that no one even knows if they still exist or not.

I have to admit though, I am extremely hungover from Christmas so this is all I’m gonna post today, so if you don’t like it, FINE. Go read Metalsucks or something, what do I care?

So watch the interview, don’t watch it, the choice is yours… Bitch.


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.


Tuesday Trivia: The one where we couldn’t avoid Christmas

Evil Santa

…and decided that if we can’t beat them, we should join them. Christmas can be metal. Make the jump and find out why.


Dee Snider says Broadway is challenging

Dee Snider

In fact, he says that his recent gig on Broadway (which we’ve previously covered) is the most challenging thing he’s ever done. We find that hard to believe, because his other gig (in Twisted Sister) looks like it takes a few hours of preparation and ten pounds of make up. Check out the interview after the jump.

P.S. I wonder if Dee‘s Halloween costume was his “no make-up” persona. And I wonder which one scared people more…


Dee Snider has made it

Twisted Sister's Dee Snyder

Guess what? Dee Snider’s biggest prayer, ever since he first stole and tried his sister’s make up and prom dress, has finally been answered: he’s doing a show on Broadway! Even though Twisted Sister can already be classified as a drag act so we don’t see what the big deal is, everyone here at Dose of Metal is still happy for the guy, because a 35 year audition is hard work.

The deal has been confirmed, and he’ll be joining the Rock of Ages cast for a 10-week run. You can see a medley performance of it from this summer’s America’s Got Talent show if you continue reading (don’t worry, it features Dee in his male persona, so it’s safe to watch even if there are children or people with heart condition in the room with you).
