Slayer – Playing With Dolls – In anticipation of the new Slayer album ‘World Painted Blood’, the band has released a trailer for the bonus DVD to accompany the deluxe edition of the CD. This 20 minute, 12 part video graphic novel (12 parts in 20 minutes – talk about A.D.D.!?) is directed by Metalocalypse director Mark Brooks. Check it below, or follow the link back to the mighty KNAC.

Speaking of Metalocalypse, I’m seeing ole’ Dethklok tomorrow night. Wiki puts this show on par with seeing GWAR or Spinal Tap (both of whom I’ve seen live), so I’m pretty stoked. Check back here later in the week for an update. In the meantime (& in my best Nathan Explosion voice) – “Stay Brutal!”.

Skinlab – In For The Kill – It’s been 7 long years since their last studio album, but Skinlab are poised to release “The Scars Between Us” on September 17th. Here’s the video to the first single off the new disc, “In For The Kill” featuring UFC fighter Nate Quarry & Greg Thompson. I’m like’n it & can’t wait to see Steev, Snake and the boys when they tour!

Marilyn Manson Interview

As if Reverend Manson would be interviewed by Reverend Mortis, right?  pfffft!  No, below are 4 links to an interview with the self-proclaimed God of Fuck as found on Shockhound.  It’s good stuff, kiddies – this ain’t no MTV interview.  Here’s the press kit info and links;

Chapter I – Manson talks about his identity issues, the rawness of his new album and the meaning behind its lead-off track, “Devour.”

Chapter II – Manson talks about the stories behind the tracks “Pretty As A Swastika” and “Arma-Goddamn-Motherfuckin-Geddon,” and why he almost gave up making music.

Chapter III – Manson talks about voting while drunk, writing “We’re From America,” and how he’s a different person than he was at the beginning of The High End of Low.

Chapter IV – Manson talks about reuniting with Twiggy, and why he would never do reality TV.

As usual, not for the faint of heart. Enjoy!
