YouTube Discovery of the Week

Ancient Egyptian-themed death metal step aside; there's a new sound in town. Say hello to agriculturally inspired heavy metal.




Music class would have been a helluva lot more interesting had Old McDonald sounded like this when I was a kid. Can you just imagine Mrs. Larson, the second grade elementary school teacher, saying "Now children, sing with me...

Old McDonald had a farm.
E-I-E-I-OOOOOOOOO!
RAAAAAAAAWR!"

Hm, I'll have to check this out when I'm on a computer with a functioning sound card. That guy in the still looks like Oasis' Liam Gallagher, though.

Well until you get to work tomorrow, Maise, think System of a Down with a scream-o singer. Great stuff.

Was that a commercial? I think this is the guy JR is in love with. In grade school, we never sang Old McDonald - only If I Had A Hammer. I guess that's why I like metal now.

JR said...

Anonymous, funk you.

The two men at the top of my list right now are KEVIN SHIELDS of My Bloody Valentine and J MASCIS of General Awesomeness and Unbearable Hotness (also Dinosaur Jr, J Mascis and The Fog, Witch, etc).

Yeah, they're really good friends. What are you driving at?

JR said...

I don't have the hots for Zohan.

J MASCIS is too old for you JR.

JR said...

Nuh uh.

I prefer HATEBEAK, it is a real metal band that has a parrot singer.

This is not a joke. Real band, real record.

Jesus. Those guys should visit my Mom's house. She's got several macaws that are loud. as. FUCK. When they all get going you swear your ears are going to burst.

The best part is the guy's face in the screencap. He's so dead fucking serious about this, you guys. MOOOOO!!!

LOLOLOL, Okay, I finally took two minutes to watch this.

I was a bit afraid that there would be slaughterhouse footage or something with the "vegan" warning Iris provided.

But this was just awesome.

TRACTOOOOOORRRRRRRRR!

Iris said...

The vegan warning was because of the "milk the cows" line. Wasn't sure how sensative an issue it might be to some folks.

Iris said...

Warning adjusted.

This just makes me think of Lamb of God
seriously. That's not some retarded pun.

My brother was listening to one of their albums a few days ago and the guy sounds a bit "Oo-arr moi flower" if you ask me. They should do Wurzels covers.
