MORE ACAPELLA METAL THAT’S BETTER THAN VAN CANTO: JUD JUD AND DOKAKA
One of the more fun parts of guesting on last night’s Metal Injection Livecast was towards the end of the show, when we somehow ended up listening to some acapella metal. What was really amazing was that, unlike Van Canto, none of it sucked – in fact, it was all pretty rockin’. And, no, none of it was from this dude.
The first group we checked out was Jud Jud, a straight-edge duo that actually started back in the 80s. They were really just two dudes singing out all the guitar parts for various generic metal riffs (their songs have titles like “Speed Picking Song,” “Harmonics Song,” etc.), but they’re pretty awesome. I can’t believe they weren’t high when they come up with the idea for this.
The second artist (can I call these people artists?) we checked out was Dokaka, who I actually wrote about back in 2007, but, y’know. I guess weed isn’t very good for the memory. Maybe I should be straight edge like Jud Jud. Naw, I’m just joshin’, I’d never do that.
ANYWAY, here’s Dokaka doing “Creeping Death.” It’s frickin’ sweet, even if it seems pretty clear that this dude is crazy.
