Gwar Has Their Own Beer
The absurdly awesomely-named Gwar-B-Q Brew is the lovechild of metal band Gwar, respected brewer Rob Chalmers, and Cigar City Brewing. You can get your hands on a can at the annual Gwar-B-Q in Richmond, VA on August 17.
Check out the official Gwar-B-Q commercial below which is easily one of the greatest beer ads of all time.

Aluminum Wood Casting- Tech Meets Nature in These Beautiful Design

Israeli artist Hilla Shamia manages to create a modern/natural art piece made of aluminum and wood that remains functional while still conjuring a wide range of emotional and ideological triggers. These are gorgeous pieces that can not only stand in a gallery, but also in a home as a table or a seat.

The process involves, and this is by no means an in-depth explanation, pouring the extremely hot aluminum into a casting with the wood at the bottom. The goal is to have as little oxygen in that space as possible and then get the aluminum to cool quick enough. The result is charring instead of burning.

These are aesthetically perfect to me. I would love to have a piece sitting in my office.

When Japanese Pop Idols Go Metal

Here’s the video for “Take My Chance” by the Japanese all-girl hard rock group Doll$Boxx. They’re all super cute, can shred on their instruments like it’s nobody’s business, and their drummer can scream like a demon with a throat like a freight train. Definitely not your average J-Rock band.

The Official Slayer Christmas Sweater
Slayer, the legendary thrash metal band, released these awesomely hideous Christmas sweaters on their official merch site for $80. They’re all sold out now, but you can always hit up ebay and plop down a few Benji’s if you can manage to find one.

A Little Bit On The Daft Punk Meets Metal Side: Watch powerful guitar warlock Eric Calderone shred out a medley of Daft Punk songs with his magical warlocky fingers. At the 2:45 mark he plugs in the Talk Box and shit gets real.

A Little Bit on the Cave In Side: This Cave In poster rocks, man. It’s from way back in their Until Your Heart Stops days. Two of my favorite things: metal / hardcore and old games.

Somewhere, a Dude Dressed as a Stormtrooper is Throwing Up Devil Horns.

Watch this dude shred the gnar on his geetaur to a metallic medley of Star Wars songs. We were starting to get sick of Guitar Hero Hero and its umpteen flazillion sequels, but Team Albotas would kill for a Guitar Hero: Star Wars Goes Metal Edition as long as every song was written by Dragonforce and this guy.

Before My Life Fails Are Up & Coming

A few years ago, I stumbled across an oddly named Japanese [we like Japan here at Albotas] metalcore band while browsing iTunes and I was super impressed by how Western-sounding and just plain heavy they were. Before My Life Fails didn’t seem to have much of a following at the time; the only Google results were their MySpace and a few other pages. It looks like they’re hitting it big now though, as they’ve recently released a full length CD with higher production values. Not to be the “I like their old stuff” guy, but check out their EP, “The Pathetic Party” before anything else. It sounds like Arma Angelus and Johnny Truant. The new CD, “Youth Against Christ” has some cheesy pop-punk riffs and clean vocals, which is fine if you don’t like bowel-shaking breakdowns.


 

Half-Minute Hero Soundtrack Frickin’ Slays

I recently got Half-Minute Hero for the PSP. It’s an awesome game, and equally awesome to the way it plays is it’s soundtrack. You usually get metal that sounds like stock audio but this is some quality shredding.
 

This Is The Most Bad-ass Limited Edition Vinyl Record Packaging Ever…
…and not just because the packaging folds into a cardboard ghettoblaster, or because the 10” album is pressed on clear vinyl limited to an edition of just 1350 pieces, or because it also includes a CD version of the album containing three trilogy records.
No, this thing rules for none of the above reasons. It rules because it’s only $15 and from a freaking heavy-ass grindcore band called Graf Orlock!!! The album’s called Doombox and you can get it from Vitriol Records.
