Post-Apocalyptic Warriors of Hell... ATTAAAAACK!!!

The year is 1990. Heavy Metal has been outlawed. Only one sport remains... SURVIVAL. Mutants roam the wasteland, looking for fuel to power their war machines of destruction. Greed and war has left the planet ravaged. Men are like animals. The actual animals have grown huge, and deformed from massive doses of radiation. All vehicles must be covered with armor to protect them from spears and various spiked weapons. If any female humans are to be found, they are often scantily clad in rat pelts. You have now entered the forbidden zone...

"Everybody F**ks in Pig’s Blood"

The story of a young man's introduction to the song Black Sabbath, from the album Black Sabbath, performed by the band ... Black Sabbath.

“Black Sabbath perform real Black Masses and they kill animals for sacrifice. You know what a Black Mass is? ... Not just that, they have orgies, too. F**king blood orgies, man,” Rick continued while smoke streamed from what seemed like every orifice in his head. “They get all these women high and then everybody f**ks in pig’s blood. That’s how you worship Satan. My brother, Chuck, has been to a Black Mass. He said they killed pigs and chickens and goats and all the women were naked. He drank real blood. That’s a f**king Black Mass.”

“Wow.” I was properly impressed.

Music Video Mania

LONE RAGER - "Metal RAPsody"

I would like to kick off this video jam, with one that dares you to make it through the entire song. A song intended to make a case for the movement of independent label metal bands onto the major labels, by showing metal lineage through rock history, AND the diversification of the scene. Brutally unlistenable. Instead of taking the most obvious path, The "Lone Rager" was recorded as a metalized rap song. The first Rap/Metal crossover? To relieve the listener from this tedious master of ceremonies, we refrain to the off-tune chorus of robotic chanting children, repeating their evil slogan.

TOXIC HOLOCAUST - "Nuke the Cross"

In the vein of K.I.S.S. (keep it simple stupid!) Not unlike the alchemists of yore, Toxic Holocaust pick and choose choice style elements for their cauldron of metal. It amazes me that I am so old, that this type of music is considered retro.

HEAVY LOAD - "Daybreak Ecstasy"

I don't know anything about Heavy Load. I probably dismissed them due to their annoyingly unscary logo. This song is really some tough metal, after you make it through the many guitar, bass and drum solos. You know I'll be hopping on eBay later to bid on a couple of raccoon tails!

AXEGRINDER - "Rise of the Serpent Men"

Weird song! Starts off like a poppy kind of art rock song for the first minute and a half. Not very Axegrinderish, I'm thinking. The song develops into reverb laden thrash that actually gets quite intense. The band simply falls apart several times, which is unsettling. At some point I actual feared that these "serpent men" were a legitimate threat!

JUDAS PRIEST - "Victim of Changes"

I dare you not to bang you head, poser! I WILL RIP IT OFF!

MAYHEM - "Freezing Moon" (Sims 2)

I'm not too up on the video games very much lately, or black metal either for that matter! I guess that they are now joined together. I know that Mayhem is a black metal band. I know that Sims is a video game where you walk around and interact with other nerds, and computer geeks. I guess you pay "credits" to see the virtual Mayhem? I find this more interesting than the real band somehow.

RAZOR - "Shotgun Justice"

The singer smiling throughout this video really upsets me on a primal level. Filmed in part through the moonroof of a Datsun Nissan Pulsar NX. The epic moment of "This is how a scumbag dies!" alone, makes this video worth watching at least once.

Samson - Biceps of Steel

A true metal mini-movie. Samson's roadie "Thunderstick" saves the day with his Herculean strength. I think I spot a few of those legendary home-made guitars that were a topic of this post. I like how the drummer is totally insane and has to be caged. Not unlike Raven's drummer Whacko or The Muppets drummer Animal.

Slayer and Stryper swap singers for new Reality Show.
According to Kerry King, guitarist, for Slayer, the band plans to “Show no mercy” towards Michael Sweet, singer for Stryper.
“We’re going to force evil down his goddamn throat. We’re going to make him feel pain like he’s never felt before. We’re going to get him wasted, laid and leave him on the side of the railroad tracks with nothing on but a leaf to cover his genitals. Of course, that’s after we allow all the wild animals to take bites out of him, giving him rabies and causing him to suffer greatly.”
