Metallers are po-faced. We don’t really like the idea of a joke, because the joke is often on us. We can laugh [ahem] at Steel Panther because the obvious pastiche of 80s glam rock drips off them as evidently as tequila, sweat and silicon shavings. But at the end of the day, we can just listen to Slayer and remind ourselves that the kernel of heavy metal is serious business, crafted by stocky-legged men hitting the bottom E string really hard and really fast.

Sabaton 2011 by Gary Wolstenholme Thrash Hits

Well, here’s a confusing bit of news. People have spent the last 18 hours left debating whether or not sure this news was the result of a website hack, an April Fools’ joke that got splurted out a day early, or whether it’s just the result of some good old-fashioned miscommunication. However, this morning the Swedish military fetishists and all-round OTT metallers, Sabaton, have confirmed the rumours that have been making the rounds all week – that not one, not two, not three, but FOUR of their line-up have left the band, mere weeks before the band’s seventh studio album is released.

Sunday Spotify Slaylist: Power Metal

March 21st, 2010

Normally we leave it up to our Deputy Editor to cobble together our Slaylists when he’s one shade or another of hungover. Not so this week – step forward Tom Dare with his Slaylist of EPIC proportions…

In a world where metal rules (“and if you don’t like it die” Paul Baloff), one nation consistently ignored one of the finest styles of metal. That nation was the UK, and that style was power metal. One man began a quest to expose some of the ultimate greatness displayed by power metal bands.
