It’s hard to be tr00. Every week, the editors of MetalSucks.net , Axl Rosenberg and Vince Neilstein, will dissect the week’s stories and decide which stories are deemed worthy of the title “tr00″and admonish all posers who are false and upset the metal gods. Here are this week’s entries:
Dillinger Escape Plan vs. Disturbed
Remarks about stage performance led to some highly amusing backtalk and a subsequent media tornado. We live for this kind of shit.
Air an amazingly low budget TV advertisement .
Released a spurt of new video clips featuring rehearsal footage and clips of new tunes. Good? Too soon to tell, but who isn’t interested?
Unknowingly covers Pantera at a live show. Lame.
Scars on Broadway
Daron Malakian and John Dolmayan of System of a Down’s side project, Scars on Broadway, signed with the big boys at Interscope . Why bother with a major these days, especially if you’re already of such high stature? Just pull a Trent Reznor and DIY.
Scott Weiland / The fucked up U.S. legal system
Weiland served 13 minutes of an 8-day jail sentence resulting from a DUI conviction. What the fuck?? Most people get locked up for a year for a second offense. Money rules all.
