That is a good article, cheers. I will never understand how someone like John Dolmayan, the SOAD drummer can make statements and think thoughts like that.

Does the metronome he listens to block out Serj Tankians lyrics or something? Baffling.

Black metal is the absolute fucking worst when it comes to racist douchebags. Although, to be fair, I'm not sure I'd lump them in with actual racists, as many of them seem to be "racist" because they think it makes them seem edgy and dangerous.

In reality, they just come off as berks.

The new Lamb of God album is absolutely sensational. Check it out if you get some spare time, this band just keeps getting better and better.

The album opens with a song called Memento Mori which is superb, summed up by this YouTube comment 


I’d love to see them headline a big festival next year although I can’t see it happening. Maybe headlining a second stage somewhere, here’s hoping.

Some metal label has started this "Fuck Racism" campaign and the first thing they do is feature the dude from Integrity who's pretty well known in the scene as sketchy as hell (best mates with Boyd Rice etc), has his own racist as label, too. There's a lot of loudly anti-fascist bands today but fuck me, it's hard to tell who's grifting and who means it.

Dave Mustaine from Megadeath is another that should be added to the list in that article. 

A friend of mine's band went on a US tour with them a few years back and backstage at a show Dave asked asked one of them where in the UK he was from. He said Coventry and Dave replied with "Oh yeah, lot of Muslims there, isn't there? Don't worry though, they'll be the first to go when the day of reckoning happens" (I'm paraphrasing as I can't remember the exact wording). They had a bit of a heated debated about it as they'd seen all the InfoWars stickers plastered all over Dave's amps and next day they got a phone call from the bands manager saying they were being dropped from the tour due to their "poor record sales in the US" even though their US sales are more than their UK ones, and that they'd done numerous sell out, headline tours of the US already.

Speaking of black metal dweebs, False have split up as one of the members has been accused of sexual assault. They cut all ties with the guy and disbanded the band then and there, they were certainly one of the more progressive groups around (politically, no so much musically).

The only British band that’s toured with Megadeth that has any sort of following in the US is Tesseract but I’m pretty sure they’re from Milton Keynes, or they were originally at least, they could’ve relocated to Coventry early on

In Daves book he tells a story about dedicating a song to "the cause" in Belfast in the late 80s. Immediate riot.

If I recall correctly, this was after a guy selling bootleg merch gave Big Dave what I am sure was an extremely accurate and in depth overview of the troubles.

Yeah it was Tesseract. One of them is from Coventry originally. I think it was the drummer.
