Megadeth and Slayer, who last toured the U.S. together 19 years ago on the "Clash of the Titans" extravaganza, have confirmed that they will each perform, start to finish, their 1990 releases - Slayer's world-wide, million-selling Seasons In The Abyss and Megadeth's Platinum Rust In Peace - on the upcoming Canadian and American Carnage Tours.

Slayer.net News

Slayer's mostly only going to play the Seasons In The Abyss album!? Hrmm...well, there are worse setlists to be had, I suppose.

Reports like this are almost invariably sightings of National Defense testing out their "killing technology". They said the same thing about the B-2 stealth bombers back in the day. "HOLY SHIT, flying black triangles!"

Anyway, dropping tons of acid will fuck you up.

I love the Chilean Pentagram for their necro-interpretations of American proto-death and Teutonic speed metal. Keeping my eye out for this.

So, since it's Metal to be philanthropic now,  are the proceeds going to the victims of the Santiago quake?

Metal / U.S Senators use taxpayer money to attend metal festival in Germany
« on: February 19, 2010, 10:33:40 PM »
SOURCE: Congress Travels More, Public Pays (Wall Street Journal)

In August, two Republican senators, Richard Shelby of Alabama and John Cornyn of Texas, went to Europe with their wives and aides to meet with banking regulators and industry executives.
His spokesman, Jonathan Graffeo, said the trip's chief purpose was to discuss with foreign officials the global financial crisis and regulatory reform. The senators spent the first five days in Germany, where they had three meetings with banking officials
Among side trips they took were two tours in vans driven by U.S. Embassy staff, including one along the Rhine, where they stopped at a heavy-metal festival. The trip cost about $70,000, according to a travel disclosure form filled out by the senators. A spokesman for Mr. Cornyn declined to comment.
Funny how the White House can predictably and thoughtlessly brush off a presidential proclamation to recognize metal culture, and yet stories like these pop up. $70,000?!? Bastards probably got bought all-access passes while they were at it.

Although, this also means that American hessians may have possible allies within the government. All the more reason to push for NDoS!

Metal / Re: Metal to Become Religion in UK
« on: February 18, 2010, 12:50:04 AM »
To any Americans who were looking forward to screwing with the religion question on the 2010 Census---you're out of luck, because the Census has been abbreviated to just 10 questions and religion isn't one of them. If I may surmise the reasons for this, it's because (A) A lot of Americans nowadays don't have the attention span to look over a document that's more than 1 page long, and (B) we don't have a Muzzie problem like Europeans do; instead, the American census has an entire section devoted to "who speaks Spanish?" and "exactly what kind of 'Spanish' are you?".

The U.K. Census 2011 definitely asks about religion, though. Best of luck to the movement over there; it would be fitting for it to really happen, with England being Metal's birthplace and all.

Also, it should be widely promoted amongst the Canadian front that the Canadian Census 2011 will ask about religion!

Metal / Re: Metal to Become Religion in UK
« on: January 29, 2010, 07:36:32 PM »
The title can't just be "Metal" just like, Christians aren't just "Christ".

Metallist? Metalhead? Hessian? This has to be organized somehow so it's not all over the place.

There's no need for that here: if you're given a sheet that asks you to check the box next to your faith, the religions would be listed like "Christianity", "Buddhism", "Islam" instead of Muslim, "Metal" instead of what-have-you. You wouldn't have to worry about what to call a single practitioner, which is a good thing in our case since most so-called metal fans nowadays haven't a clue what "Hessian" refers to, and conversely some Hessians think the "metalhead" label is disparaging. Save that can of worms for later!

At first glance I thought this was a cheesy idea, but then I noticed a few common traits amongst Metal people:
  • Regularly attend live rituals, with attendees often acting possessed; orchestrate pilgrimages to the more significant rituals no matter how far
  • Shun the weak, tasteless, or otherwise treasonous among us as infidels; divide into sects; identify the most talented as spiritual leaders
  • Have established traditional dress and customs of appearance (varying somewhat by sect but ultimately universal)
  • Have a lexicon of symbols distinctive and esoteric ("You can't read this? It says 'Averse Sefira'.")
  • Derive a philosophy and inspiration from regular listening experiences, which are often prayer-like in their privacy
Fuck, I guess it is sort of a religion.
