MISERY INDEX: EXCLUSIVE WORLD TOUR VIDEO DIARY, PART 1
When the lads of Maryland death-thrashers Misery Index (whose excellent 2008 album Traitors our own Axl Rosenberg gave a four-out-of-five-horns rating and our own David Bee Roth ranked his #8 album of 2008) approached us about doing a video blog series for their current world tour, we were a bit skeptical; lots of bands pitch us all like, “hey doodz we’ll do a tour blog it’ll be awesome booze bitches drugs metal rawwwr yeaahhhh!” and then never deliver. But Misery Index have delivered in spades with Part 1 of the 3 Part series, a hilarious look into the band’s life on the European leg of their tour including band introductions, backstage shenanigans, live footage, and, um… bird-watching. The best is when bassist/vocalist Jason Netherton convinces a bunch of dudes in European metal bands — unaware of the awesomeness that is our site — to say “Metal Sucks!!!” to the camera. Stay tuned for Part 2: Japan, coming soon to a douchie metal site near you.
