One + One


Chris Cornell, of Soundgarden fame, combined the lyrics from Metallica’s song “One” with the melody from U2’s song “One” to great effect. I’m not a huge Metallica or U2 fan (more of a Soundgarden fan I suppose) but this combination is uniquely moving.

There is another video of a different performance of the song on YouTube. It has better sound quality but lacks the same emotion as the performance above.

The Best Two Second Slayer Video Ever

I was upset to read that Slayer’s guitarist Jeff Hanneman died yesterday morning at age 49. In honor of Jeff’s passing I present to you my most favorite two second Slayer video ever.

These two ushers had a hell of a night during the August 25th 2010 Slayer show at Magness Arena in Denver, CO. They stood like that the entire night. Magness Arena really doesn’t have a lot of concerts (Though I have seen Pixies and Jane’s Addiction there) and I don’t think these poor ladies had any idea what they were in for.

SLAYER!

Slayer

Slayer

I get to check another goal off the old life list.

Having missed out on a couple opportunities in the past I finally had my chance to see Slayer at Magness arena. It was the loudest show I have ever seen (by far). Forget amps that go to 11, Slayer’s go all the way to 666. It was a full-on sonic assault on my ears and I loved it. They started off with two songs and then pummeled there way through the entire Seasons In The Abyss album. The encore whipped the crowd into a frenzy with “South Of Heaven”, “Raining Blood,” “Aggressive Perfector” and show closer, 1986’s brutal and harrowing “Angel of Death”. I can’t wait to see them again.

The Unrepentant Evil Of Black Fudge Or Chöcolate Cüpcakes

Death metal + incredible dessert recipes = The Black Oven – immaculate confections succumbed to northern darkness. With recipes like “Where the Chocolate Beats Incessant”, “Le Petit Gateau du Les Legions Noire -Traditional cupcakes inspired by untraditional black metal”, and “Frostbitten Molasses Cookies Entombed with Ginger” this promises to be the best black metal cooking site on the web.

I’m pretty sure lemon curd doesn’t exist in Norway. However, if by some miracle Odin had bestowed upon the snow beaten north the gift of citrus, the vikings would have probably made these. Buried beneath the mountains of frost…are cookies! These are best enjoyed while basking in the self-righteousness of your own obscurity.

Don’t stop there. The Breadmaster Strikes!!!!!!!!!! comes in a close second when it comes to baking in hallowed depths of hellfire. SeitanWörshipper does a pretty good dark metal/food blog (from Finland of course) too.
