On the road!

My sincerest apologies to those who read this site on a regular basis. We’re all pretty busy around these parts and the last few weeks have been hell for me especially. I’ve taken some odd jobs that have required me to travel the Western United States. While doing so I picked up some CDs, and here’s a little blurb on each of them..

Hatebreed’s latest – I don’t even know the name of it, however, I don’t seem to mind. Save your money, folks. I found this album to be an absolute bore. It felt like Jamey Jasta was done making music for artistic purposes and just decided to rake in a few bucks. I know lots of musicians are on that side of the spectrum these days, but the feeling was almost instant when I popped the cd in. Aside from that, there’s a cover of Metallica’s “Escape” as a bonus track which I have considered the worst cover of all time.

Megadeth’s Endgame – I understand that the days of the “classic” lineup are over and the band hasn’t released anything amazing since the 90’s, but, this album was surprisingly entertaining. Not once on my drive to Boise did I skip a song. There’s plenty of great riffs and solos on this album to keep you air guitaring in your car. Don’t pay attention to lyrics. They’re terrible.

Revocation’s Existence is Futile – Holy motherfucker. The hype from Invisible Oranges was enough for me to seek this one out. I traveled to several record stores looking for it, and finally found it in Salt Lake City. I listened to this one several several times through, back to back. It’s just that good. David Davidson’s guitar work is really some of the most refreshing I’ve heard in some time. I can’t do this one justice, buy the album.

Baroness Blue Record – After many listens I decided that this is easily one of my favorite albums this year. I forget about good music in an attempt to discover the most brutal, heavy shit that I can. All that “metal” shit aside, this is just a fucking phenomenal rock record. A perfect album to chill and burn a fat one to.

Big Four Tour..more rumors.

This is actually a story from last week, but Robert Trujillo, who supposedly plays bass for Metallica*, is now talking about the big four tour as if the shit might be happening. Here is a quote from Mr. Trujillo regarding the situation during an interview with Blabbermouth:

I think it’s great. We’ve had a few different conversations on the subject. I’m friends with (SLAYER‘s) Kerry King and had dinner with him a few months back, and it came up there. I think (MEGADETH‘s) Dave Mustaine is amazing. I’ve never had a problem with him personally. I think it’d be great if METALLICA shared the stage with his band. METALLICA‘s still great friends with (ANTHRAX‘s) Scott Ian. There’s a lot of history there. I think it’d be great for metal. I don’t think all four bands have played together at the same time.

I’m getting excited, but I know it’s over nothing. Let’s say everyone agrees to this tour. We all know Anthrax would open, but it’s that second spot I’m curious about. Would it be Megadeth, or Slayer? And if it’s one over the other, what would either egomaniac, Mustaine/King have to say? Things are already too complicated as it is, so, again, I won’t hold my breath. I’ll wait till tickets go on sale.

* – There is no proof Robert Trujillo plays bass, or if there even is a bass present on Death Magnetic.

Big Four Tour…Riiiiight.

It’ll never happen, right? Right?! It’s a possibility..Maybe.

Metal Hammer recently spoke with Kerry King of Slayer and he says differently. Kinda..

“I’ve heard people referencing Lars,” says King. “I don’t know Lars that well and I haven’t heard it from Lars but apparently he’s talking to somebody about it. Maybe us, Metallica, Megadeth (and), I think he even threw in Anthrax and I said in this day and age, I know we had that time together but how do you leave out Machine Head? There’s better options than Anthrax and that’s nothing against Anthrax, but they’ve just been in pieces for quite some time and that doesn’t make as much sense to me.”

So it’s only a rumor but I really don’t think it’ll ever happen. All those dudes hate one another or at least Dave Mustaine hates all of them. I won’t hold my breath, and neither should you.

Dave Mustaine Is at it again!

Oh, Dave.

Dave Mustaine is crazy. I absolutely love the guy’s music. Hell, I was a part of many, many Megadeth > Metallica threads on message boards across the internet. I had no desire to learn guitar until I heard “Symphony of Destruction” for the first time. It’s safe to say that I keep up on all his doings, even when he’s being a moron. Dave recently spoke with Dave Ling of Classic Rock Magazine and, as usual, there are some fucking gems in there.

However, I’m only going to focus on the shit talking he did when it was mentioned he was chosen number one in Joel McIver’s “100 Greatest Metal Guitarists” book:

How did it feel to be No. 1 in Joel McIver’s recent book, “The 100 Greatest Metal Guitarists“?

It was especially sweet when I found out that Joel has written books on Metallica. I looked at my copy of the book — I wasn’t on the cover or the back. I figured I’d be somewhere like No. 69. So I thumbed through it; it’s a really comprehensive, good book. I got to No. 50 and I thought, “Am I in here?” I’d been told that I was, but not which position. So I got No. 16 and I saw Hetfield. I thought, “Wow,” because I respect James. I’m a better lead player than he is, but he’s one of the three best rhythm players in the world.

The other two being?

Malcolm Young [of AC/DC] and myself. Malcolm kept it basic but brought a whole new style of rhythm playing to the world. So I got to the Top 10… I still wasn’t in there. Every page I turned, I became more excited. I get to No. 5 and it’s Kirk [Hammett], and I thought, “Thank you, God.” At that point it didn’t matter [which position I was]. To be better than both of them [Hetfield and Hammett] meant so much — it’s been one of the pet peeves of my career and I’ve never known how to deal with it. I didn’t realize that it has had so much bearing upon my life. Then I got to No. 2 and it was John Petrucci [of Dream Theater] and I froze. I was No. 1. What made it better still is that the guy wrote: “This isn’t about Dave as a person because he’s been a cock” — [interjects with a bray of laughter] — “These four pages are about his guitar playing, which is the best. There are people who are better at one thing that Mustaine does, and others that are better than another, but no-one who’s as good at everything.” All I thought was… I win!

I haven’t read the book yet. Someone tell me where Dimebag is, please. Also, I just found out that Dave Mustaine will have his own radio show soon. I would give anything to be his co-host. Please, Jews who run radio, let me be his co-host.

New Shit: Slayer – Hate Worldwide

slayer

White people are crazy.

Slayer has a new song streaming from their upcoming album World Painted Blood, which doesn’t have a release date yet… Anyway, the new track is titled “Hate Worldwide.” The single will be released exclusively at Hot Topic tomorrow, but you can listen to it exclusively on Shockhound.com, or wait a few minutes and download it some zshare or some shit.

Also, did you know Megadeth and Slayer are going on tour together again? Yeah, you know, in Australia. Which is thousands of miles away from America, where they should be touring. Motherfuckers.
