THE FIRST DVD YOU’LL BUY IN 2009When you think about it, being French Canadian must be the worst of both possible worlds. You’re not really French but you are, you’re not really Canadian but you are, and if you’re like most people, you probably don’t really wanna be Canadian anyway (All due respect to Sebastian Bach, William Shatner, Michael J. Fox, and MetalSucks’ own resident canuck David Bee Roth).

So maybe that’s why Despised Icon make such furious music. It can be hard to understand what they’re actually saying amidst all the br00tality and pig squeals, but I think it’s something along the lines of “FUCK! WE’RE FRENCH CANADIANS! GRRRRRR!!!”

ANYWAY, Century will release a decidedly intense, decidedly French Canadian Despised Icon DVD, entitled Montreal Assault, on January 27, 2009. I haven’t seen it yet, but it already has a few things going for it:

  • It’s Despised Icon.
  • They put on an awesome live show.
  • The DVD has a concert film which was directed by David Brodsky, who has directed some insanely excellent concert films in the past (like God Forbid’s recent DVD!).
  • The live version of “The Ills of Modern Man” currently streaming on the band’s MySpace page sounds killer.
  • There’s a documentary which is sure to feature lots of hilarious French Canadian accents. Drinking games based around trying to figure out what the fuck the band members are saying will surely ensue.

So, yeah. January 27, 2009. That’s shortly after my birthday. Fellow MetalSucks staffers, take note.
