Icelandic post-rock act, and personal favorite of Lane and I, Sigur Ros will be appearing on the television adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s novels Game Of Thrones‘ forth season. Along with bands such as Snow Patrol, Coldplay and The National, Sigur Ros will (most likely) be performing songs based on George R.R. Martin’s novels.
I don’t watch this show, but now I have a reason to, so it might be time to jump on the bandwagon. Sigur Ros and Peter Dinklage on the same show? Hell yeah. Continue reading →
Just a few days ago, television’s cooking icon Rachael Ray featured Saturday Night Live and Portlandia cast member Fred Armisen as the guest on her show. At some point in the interview, Ray gives her guests one minute of free time to purvey any message that they choose. In this particular instant, Armisen chose to go on a thirty-second tangent about “a musician who he thinks is the greatest ever”. That musician was none other than Death Grips drummer Zach Hill! According to Armisen, Hill has “reinvented how you drum”.
Man, that is some killer press, too bad it’s going to be wasted on people who’d rather listen to Justin Beiber. Can you just imagine America’s bored house wives casually youtubing Death Grips? Yeah, pretty fucking awesome, right? To view the clip of Armisen on Rachael Ray click here.
There have been many metal incarnations of non-metal…. stuff over the years. Like that awesome Larry David/Motorhead mash-up shirt (seen here) and now something that I find amazing: NBC/Nick @ Nite’s FRIENDS made into black metal characters (name logos and all) by Skreened. It’s pretty fucking fantastic. You can see David Schwimmer’s character Ross as it appears on the t-shirt at the top of this post and see the rest of the stock here. Unfortunately, these shirts are rather pricey ($30 a piece), but they are cool nonetheless.
I am officially a huge fan of The Gorburger Show now. Monday’s episode of the ridiculous music centered talk-show featured Cedric Bixler-Zavala of The Mars Volta and a performance by Chelsea Wolfe. Watch as Gorburger and Cedric “debate” about where garbage goes and why Usher is the best dancer. Also, watch Chelsea Wolfe perform a stunning rendition of her song “The Way We Used To”. Watch the hilarious new episode below and check out the first two episodes if you have not already. Check The Warner Sound’s YouTube channel every Monday for a new episode.
Oh, apparently Usher is the best dance because he can “dance Rock Lobster on anyone’s taint on any given Sunday”. Thank you Cedric, I had no idea.
You may remember me mentioning that bands like The Mars Volta and HEALTH were slated to appear on a new internet series. Well, the first two episodes of the ridiculous The Gorburger Show premiered yesterday and it did not disappoint in my opinion. Watch the titular, ego-maniacal, blood thirsty but lovable blue monster Gorburger as he “interviews”and shit talks Tegan & Sara and Mariachi El Bronx below. It’s full of wierd and crass humor that I am sure you will find enjoyable. If you enjoyed it as much as I did, be sure to check The Warner Sound’s YouTube channel every Monday for a new episode.
The people at Funny or Die are putting together a ridiculous internet series entitled The Gorburger Show. The show is hosted by Gorburger, a blue furry monster that has to satisfy his blood lust and interview some bands while he’s at it. Some of the band’s to be featured, according to the trailer, are The Mars Volta, Mariachi El Bronx, Le Butcherettes, La Sara, 3OH3!, HEALTH, Dum Dum Girls, Fool’s Gold and Tegan and Sara. The show will premiere on the 24th via The Warner Sound’s youtube channel. Check out the show’s trailer below:
Late last week a video surfaced of the drummer of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Billy Rymer, being interviewed on NBC4 about…… Taco fucking Bell. I guess this means Billy isn’t a vegan or a health nut like most of the other dudes in DEP. It’s odd to me that anyone eats Taco Bell, it’s odd to me that out of all the random people they happened to interview Rymer, and it’s even odder that they were doing a piece about late night fast food during the day. Whatever. I guess DEP can use this footage when they inevitably apply for a Taco Bell sponsorship. YO QUIERO TACO BELL!!
Good morning, folks. How are we all feeling today? Good, I hope. If you listen to extreme metal than you most likely know of Dethklok, the animated metal band from the hit Cartoon Network show Metalocalypse. I fucking love this show, so of course I am a fan of the band. Lately I have been listening to my Dethalbum II vinyl that I got a while back and it has reminded me why I like the band so much. Smooth and heavy melo-death with lyrics that cannot be anything but loved. So, yeah. I’ve chosen Dethklok for my mourning playlist. Enjoy.
I know I’m the elder statesmen of this website, so I feel the need to make clear that I hate KISS. I know I’m supposed to love them, but I hate just about everything about that band. Their gimmick was lame. Their songs were lamer and Gene Simmons is probably the world’s biggest douche.
Gene Simmons explains to Adweek that KISS was a pyramid scheme and a “brand, not a band”
It’s not very often that I do reviews of television series. Actually, I never have done one and I didn’t think I ever would, seeing as my section of expertise is extreme music. The review however is not about extreme music or a television series. The show I want to talk about is Mortal Kombat: Legacy. This is a web series put together by Kevin Tancharoen and released on Mechinima’s YouTube page. The show is the offspring of Mortal Kombat: Rebirth (see below) which was written, directed and edited by Tancharoen and was made with a budget of $7,500 and filmed in just one weekend.
Tancharoen met with Warner Bros. executives who almost gave him the go-ahead to create a full-length film based around his reimagining of the Mortal Kombat world. Although they did not give him permission to create the film, they did agree to fund a web series which spawned Mortal Kombat: Legacy. Which was greeted with great fan responses. [Continue…]
