That headline WAS unnecessary!

If you’re like 99.999999% of the world, you couldn’t make it to Wacken Open Air in Germany this year. That’s OK, because you can stream the festival at your desk.

The broadcast will be streaming today and tomorrow. Watch it right here. Children of Bodom is up right now, followed by Apocalyptica, then CARCASS.

In the meantime, I need a sandwich. Open thread below!

Thanks KJM and 365 Days of horror.

UPDATE: Slipknot just put out a new tune if you care about that kind of thing. Listen to it here. 

 

  • Metaphysical Anus

    My lack of god! The new slipknot song is so FUCKING bad.

    • I think I’ve only heard 2 or 3 Slipknot tunes so I can’t really make a judgement here. It sounds exactly like the other songs to me.

      • KJM

        I’ve seen them 3 times at various Ozzfests. ‘Purity’ was the only song that stood out to me.

      • Pyschosocial is on my gym playlist, but that’s as far as my slipknot listening goes these days.

    • Mother Shabubu III

      Honestly, it’s not THAT bad. It’s exactly what I expected the follow up to “Iowa” would sound like. It’s just ten years too late. It’s not as bad as the new Bizkit song. It tries to be Mr. Bungle and has a post-rock interlude in the middle of it.

      • Metaphysical Anus

        I haven’t heard that one yet.

        • Mother Shabubu III

          It’s pretty boring actually. Usually Bizikit has a riff or part so awful and catchy it gets stuck in your head despite it being so awful. This is just unorganized dreck.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            I listened to it. I didn’t like it.

          • Mother Shabubu III

            The Germans have a term for a song like this, “Krappenfest”!

      • Norfair Legend

        My sentiments exactely…

      • Metaphysical Anus

        After a few listens: I kind of like the chorus.

    • Owlswald

      Did they ever find a new drummer? Slipknot has been bad since Iowa. Their S/T is still their best.

    • God

      🙁 I like it

      • Negrodamus

        I used to really like Vol. 3.

        • Mook Styfawker

          Same, and there are still a few songs on it that I would say I could listen to. I also still very much enjoy their first album. This new track is just boring and too clean sounding for how “intense” it’s supposed to sound.

          • Ann Coulter’s Flaccid Penis

            Not grimy enuff. Also, shitty and boring drumming.

    • CyberneticOrganism

        Toilets are our friends.

        • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

          i saw this post and i still thought, wonder what that chick looks like naked and if she has a pretty face. Yea, i love pussy a lot.

          • Mr.CustodialArts

            Yeah, I saw RIGHT past the ever flowing shit stream and thought-“I’d do her.”

  • Man… Laiho looks like shit. That dude better lay off whatever he is on.

    GL

    • Owlswald

      They also sound like shit. It’s surprisingly bad.

      • Between The Buried & Smee

        Bodom are turning into (or always have been) the Motley Crue of melodic death metal.

        • Mr.CustodialArts

          What is their “Primal Scream” equivalent? I’d like to hear that one.

          • Between The Buried & Smee
          • Stockhausen

            No, Children of Bodom. It was not worth it.

          • Steve Smithwick

            That’s too bad. I used to like them quite a bit more. I still respect Alexi as a guitarist, but they’ve gotten really stale for me.

            Still love Hate Crew Death Roll though.

          • Mother Shabubu III

            Tss more like Children of BOREDOM or sumptin’ a’tss

        • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

          ouch ! that’s a brutal hit below the belt. It’s so bad i feel like i got a steel toe boot in the sack myself !

  • Mother Shabubu III

    Wack off to Wacken.

  • RuIN?

    Slipknot begins and ends with that 9.0 live album they did. It serves as a best of and also a good example of how good a singer Corey is. Also, am I ‘tarded? I can’t watch the Wacken thing without another useless registration to a site I’ll never visit again?

  • God

    Unashamed slipknot fan here. Loving the new tune!

    • RustyShackleford

      I’m sorta neutral on it. Big fan of self-titled and Iowa, not so much the other two albums. I’m glad it’s pretty heavy and not like some Snuff bullshit, but they just ain’t as raw as they used to be. That being said I was expecting something worse lol so I’ll take it! Yep!

    • Mr.CustodialArts

      I was a huge Stuck Mojo fan once. I could invoke the “Devin Townsend” defense, but I choose just to man up and say I enjoy shit.

      • When I was putting this site together I was trying to think of a really embarrassing and mostly forgotten band that I could hate on all the time (like MS with Emmure). The band I chose was Stuck Mojo.

        • Mr.CustodialArts

          My love affair with RapMetal was INTENSE and DEEP. PIGWALK 4-EVA.

          • Set The Tone!

          • Mr.CustodialArts

            HAHAHA dude I packed up my tent and left Camp Mojo before THAT one! HA!

          • Mr.CustodialArts

            Dude, I just checked out yer blog…no love for “Maximum Overdrive” or “Shocker?” Why do you hate my youth? WHO MADE WHOOOOO!

  • Link D. LeonhⒶrt V.

    It’s me or the new Slipknot song have a cowbell at the beginning? 😀

  • Tyree

    Dear Carcass,

    Please perform all of Symphonies of Sickness.

    Thank you

    Tyree

    • Owlswald

      They are killing it.

      • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

        sound quality is horrible

        • Owlswald

          The guitars are too low in the mix but the drums sound sweet

      • Tyree

        Damn, I can’t watch it now.

  • Owlswald

    In owlther news, I don’t currently have a face after the new Decapitated track melted it off.

    • WHAT? WHERE IS THE TRACK?

      WHY ARE YOU WITHHOLDING THIS INFORMATION??????????????????????????

      GL

    • Stockhausen

      Absolutely. I love that tone!

      • Tyree

        Them drums are relentless too. I like this new drummer.

        • Stockhausen

          Absolutely. He fills Krimh’s shoes nicely.

          • Tyree

            Have you heard Krimh’s solo stuff?

    • Ann Coulter’s Flaccid Penis

      GEWWWDDD SHEEEEIIIIIT

  • Mr.CustodialArts

    I actually DO whack off at my desk-the internet here at work is faster than at home. I wear a clip-on tie.

  • Mook Styfawker

    Is it fitting that the drums in that new Slipknot song sound both awful and boring?

    • Christian Molenaar

      Fitting because all Slipknot songs sound like that?

  • Stockhausen

    I see some hot, shirtless fat guys.

    • My productivity this afternoon has stopped. Well, it never really started…. So I guess no harm no foul!

      GL

      • Stockhausen

        Can’t resist the flab, know’m sayin??

      • Productivity is overrated.

  • Motorhead, Slayer, and King Diamond are also playing today, but for whatever reason, they’re not being shown on the stream.

    • Mr.CustodialArts

      They pulled a CRONOS and cut the feed with an AXE.

    • Owlswald

      Instead you get synchronized circle headbanging while playing cellos.

      *EDIT* They are re-broadcasting Motorhead’s set tomorrow according to the lineup.

  • CyberneticOrganism

    Pictured: an Asking Alexandria fan

  • KJM

    (looks around furtively)

    Fapfapfapfap

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      Wacken looks to be CROM approved !
      Please don’t take this down dad……….er i mean joe.
      ITS FRIDAY for fuck’s sake.

  • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

    WTF DOES

    Zugriff verweigert mean????

    • Owlswald

      Access denied

  • “you dont have permission to access this page” what nonsense is this? I’m Jack Bauer! I AM ACCESS

  • SMOHLG

    What is all y’all’s take on Apocalyptica???

    • 4.5/5 Flushes

      I was literally so bored, I went a took a shit.

      GL

    • Owlswald

      Interesting for a few songs

    • Christian Molenaar

      If it weren’t for the cellos no one would care. I don’t think they even have any style of their own, they just try to sound like whatever band their guest vocalists are from.

    • RuIN?

      I am a fan of classical music and classical arrangements. They are entertaining and put a different spin on an otherwise stuffy genre. Horns up!!

    • Steve Smithwick

      My take is that I like Epica better, I think.

      • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

        CROM APPROVES. has something to do with a strange feeling i get in my nether regions when i see simone.

    • Mother Shabubu III

      If we’re talking novelty metal, they’re no Van Cunto. Whoops, I mean Van Canto.

      Notes:

      -Isn’t having a real drummer kind of cheating at the whole a cappella thing?

      -In regards to the girl; what the fuck kind of dance moves are those?

      -“Buh-tari”?

      -1:33 to 1:34, he’s “Buh-tari-ing” into your soul and raping you with his eyes.

      -I know it’s an obscure reference, but the main vocalist dude looks a lot like a drama club/fashion goth version of Steve “Dangle” Glynn (blogger who covers Toronto Maple Leafs).

      • Between The Buried & Smee

        This is the worst thing I’ve ever seen.

        • Mother Shabubu III

          It’s so bad. I love watching this and laughing at it.

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      They were quite good as long as those cellos did sound like cellos as opposed to guitars, which kind of killed the point of the band.

  • actiondonkey
  • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

    IS THIS METALLICA COVER A FUCKING JOKE????????????????????????? FLUSSSSHHHHH

  • Warheart

    DAMMIT, guess I missed Carcass.

  • geddy

    new shitflop? why? WHY?

  • geddy

    A little help, please. Who is the band pictured?

  • geddy

    The flag was raised and it was good…very good! Thank the metal gods for allowing me to watch some of Wacken 2014 from my home in Canada!

    KREATOR!!!!
