Metalocalypse

|current sounds| Hate Forest- (some compilation I found floating on the internet- warning: only for those who seriously, deeply enjoy and thrash out to buzzsaw metal... I'm looking at you, Drew and Jace)



Metalocalypse is the best new show on Adult Swim... ever. Well, nothing will beat Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law or Space Ghost Coast to Coast (classic), but tonight's episode, "Dethfam," literally had me squeel and laugh with brutal delight at the silly metal references. The restaurant the band Dethklok takes their families to: Burzum's; the wheelchair store for the bassist's stroke-ridden grandpa: Gorgoroth's; and something was called Marduk's, too. All legendary and slightly obscure black- and death-metal bands (well, at least to kids who think Korn is metal). Brilliant.

For the hey of it, Immortal will pile-drive all you suckas. Death to false metal!

Have you seen this?

no, i haven't. not that modern youth group culture hasn't been examined before, but it's definitely been a new focus of the mainstream media in the last 2-3 years. this photojournalist had nothing new to say whatsoever, so her photo essay's a bit of a waste, but interesting nonetheless to see what a total outsider decides to see.

i think it was also in rolling stone, but did you read that article about abstinence that primarily featured "extreme christian teens"? from what i remember, it pretended to come off as balanced, but asked all the wrong questions and presented a questionable story.
