ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT
of the Week
Do you like rock ’n’ roll? More specifically,
do you like making fun of pathetic, washed-up metal bands who
still think they’re God’s gift to the music industry?
If you do, then Metal Sludge is a Web site you simply can’t
Sludge is jam-packed with hilarious interviews and juicy stories
about such has-been faves as Twisted Sister, Anthrax, Sebastian
Bach and many more — but the fun doesn’t stop there.
Oh no. Even modern-day bands such as Audioslave, Murderdolls
and The Donnas get a moment in the Sludge sun as the site creators
subject them to insanely funny, off-the-wall interview questions.
Sample clip from Sludge’s interview with Tripp Eisen: “You’re
in Static-X now. How long does it take to write an album of
songs that all sound exactly the same?”
Ahh, what a lovely burn. It’s the type of thing we at
The Gazette have always dreamed of doing in interviews, but
have never been able to since if we asked this stuff, we’d
likely get a click and a dial tone as our response.
Anyway, there’s way more to Sludge than we have space
to describe here: in addition to loads of columns, features
and reviews, there’s also a special place for Sludgeaholics
(read: groupies) to unite. And of course, there’s the
infamous rock star penis size chart (some of these figures
may surprise you!), along with an online store where fans of
the site can stock up on Sludgendise. What more could a metal
fan — or hater — ask for?
