D.I.E. – D.I.E.: A Video Breakdown

G.E.T. A. B.E.T.T.E.R. N.A.M.E.

We all like to joke that all the good band names are now taken. It may be why we see so many metal bands with “wolf” or “witch” in their names. The more plausible reason is that some people just aren’t particularly creative when it comes to naming things. With that I present to you the band D.I.E. No, not the thrash band from Finland named D.I.E. Not the three death metal bands from the US named D.I.E. And not even the Spanish band named D.I.E. I am talking about the crossover band from Brazil named D.I.E.

It’s safe to say that they are not the only band out there to use the oh-so-clever acronym of D.I.E for a band name. Acronyms can seem like a good idea if you’re a comic book writer coming up with a new evil syndicate or a child making their own fantasy wrestling federation, but it’s not a good look for bands. Just ask HIM, M.A.N., D.R.U.G.S., or S.T.U.N. You practically go blind from rolling your eyes so hard at those names. While naming your band D.I.E. is pretty silly, I suppose we should give them the benefit of the doubt. It’s a simple, easily remembered name and besides, their song titles are probably more cleve…wait, the song is also called “D.I.E”? S.h.i.t.

0:04: “Don’t worry, sir. We cleaned off all the vomit and splooge while you were gone.”
0:07: You alright, dude? Need a little moisturizer?
0:12: It’s Manbearpig!
0:16: Pig Men are the new Crab People.
0:20: Piiiiiiiiiiig Meeeeeennnnn Piiiiiiiiiiggggg Meeeeennnnnnnn!
0:24: I think this song wants people to do something, but I’m not quite sure what…
0:27: Golden Corral prepares the feeding trough.
0:32: “That’s not what I meant when I said ‘I’m going to lay some pipe!’”
0:34: “Just walk away!
0:39: Ssssssssuuuuuuuuuweeeeeeeeeee!
0:43: “Damn it, Jason! I never should have given you this job as a favor to your mother!”
0:50: Freddy would never put up with this pigshit.
0:52: Who knew Jason would wear Converse sneakers?
1:00: He’ll never get full credit at Dartmouth for his internship now.
1:05: It looks like he just finished a porn scene with a strawberry.
1:08: Marco Bertolini: The Most Trusted Name In Brazilian Metal News.
1:11: That’s a lovely brick, sir.
1:17: Is this about to become an Asesino video? Because that would be great.
1:23: Pewpewpew!
1:28: He’s going to be disappointed when he finds out those aren’t brigadeiros-flavored.
1:34: They’re no Miss Bum-Bum, but it’s good enough.
1:41: You really taste the tobacco.
1:48: A deleted scene from Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas.
1:54: The power of pork compels you!
2:01: This is the end of the gun that makes bad people go away.
2:06: Trefe.
2:17: Is a Fozzy video going to break out now?
2:26: Brazilian PTA meetings require armed guards.
2:34: More bacon in that place than the policeman’s ball.
2:39: A deleted scene from Eyes Wide Shut.
2:49: How do you say “trailer pants” in Portuguese?
2:56: He was made of jelly donuts this entire time!
3:04: A pig on cocaine? Now I’ve seen everything.
3:11: See, this is why you always tip your drivers.
3:17: Jeez, you already bashed his head in. Do you really need to gas him too?
3:23: Wait… is the song over?
3:27: Uh oh… I don’t like the sound of that music. Is this about to become a snuff film?
3:34: So the song isn’t over. It just stopped for that super important interlude.
3:38: Meal preparation for the Olympics starts early.
3:43: Just because you’re a demon doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use gloves when handling raw meat.
3:54: Sure let’s stop the song again.
4:04: Whelp, shouting “Die!” over and over again sure made me want to die.

I have no idea if there is a new D.I.E album out any time soon. They put out an EP in 2012 so there you go.

        God damn it. And thank you for posting this.

        I’m not quick to say this and I don’t mean offense to anyone in any way, shape or form – but:


        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          You make a compelling argument. I concur.

      • RepostedAvengedSevenfoldFan2

        I guarantee that these guys have fucked each other.

          Ha ha ha ha

    • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

      Last I read, one of the guitar players became a cop. 9999999999999999 Flushes for that, on top of the 9999999999 Flushes for being in KSE!!!!!!!


    construction metal

  • There actually is a S.H.I.T.!

  • CyberneticOrganism

    I think they’re trying to say rich people are pigs? I don’t know, the message isn’t clear.

    • Maik Beninton™

      Yeah something like that.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      So what are rich pigs, then?



          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            You motherfucker. I dig a lot of old school shit, but I HATE Aerosmith.

          • Oh, me too! So terrible it actually angers me.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Yeah, they should have fizzled out in the late 70s/early 80s.

          • 80’s Aerosmith is an abomination though. All of that material should be completely erased.

          • Eliza

            This brings back memories from when I I liked this band. Never do this again.

      • Dubs

        “The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”

        • Warheart

          Best Orwell book.

      • CyberneticOrganism

        *uncle on facebook makes lame Donald Trump joke*

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Hilarity ensues.

    • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

      I’m wondering if those are the same pig people from Blind Passenger’s ‘Electrocop’.


  • 365ChaosRiddenDays

    Your music has one duty:

  • JWEG


    • more beer

      Do they bring pizza then fuck your mother? How exactly does this work?


        they deliver.

      • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

        So THAT’s what the Big Sausage Pizza crew is up to nowadays!

  • Waynecro

    Thank you, Mr. 365. This was hilarious. I think I’m going to use blood to write “Pig Men are the new Crab People” on my wall and then just disappear. The media will have fun with that story.

  • more beer

    These guys are about to be back. With the original lineup with the exception of Vinny Daze. But that is to be expected.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFN9x6yE-iw

    • Dave Vincent’s Perm

      Epidemic of Violence is one of the most underrated thrash albums of all time. Necrology is fucking brutal. Tortured Existence is like Sacred Reich on steroids.

      • more beer

        Yep and the Skull Fracturing Nightmare demo shouldn’t be slept on either.

        • Dave Vincent’s Perm

          Shit, I forgot that. Skull Fracturing Nightmare is good because it’s demolition hammer and demolition hammer are good.

        • Dave Vincent’s Perm
    • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

      Oh FUCK YEAH!!!!!!!!

  • Ha ha, charade you are?

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

      You are the man, KJM

      • Well, someone else already did the obvious Orwell reference.

        • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

          Your’s was sly, under the radar, superb.

  • Eliza

    How could the people involved in this video keep a straight face?
