PUDDLE OF MUDD
MIDDLE CLASS RUT
February 14th is a date that means different things to different people. For some, Valentine’s Day is that special occasion to show someone how much you care, while for others it’s an unfortunate reminder of just how long that unused condom has been stashed in your wallet. For every lucky gentleman who has found the lady he can sexually accost without fear of court mandated harassment classes, there’s that lonely soul who will spend Valentine’s Day with nothing but music out the speakers and a bottle of Jack.
No matter which side you fall on, heavy metal has got a song to match your mood and help you head bang through the gooiest of all the holidays.
Whether any given track is purposefully over the top and funny, depressing enough to make you pull out the eyeliner and candles, or just plain outright disturbing, metal is no stranger to the anti-love song. So for those of you will be spending Valentine’s Day alone, or just simply think the holiday is nothing more than a marketing ploy to sell chocolates and greeting cards, here’s a series of anti-love anthems to get you through the day.
For those who still have a heart and haven't devolved into extreme cynicism, you can also check out our companion listing of pro-love heavy metal music at this location.
Metalunderground.com is no stranger to aberrant sexual behavior, as we have the honor of being home the infamous “I’d put my tongue in her butt” forum thread. The following, um, “tongue-in-cheek” songs are all dedicated to everyone who has ever contributed a post to that thread.
Whether 80’s glam rock parody/tribute act Steel Panther is singing love songs or anti-love songs is a matter of some debate. What could be more loving than each band member’s willingness to sleep with anything that moves, regardless of VD status? Take the particularly touching song “Turn Out The Lights,” in which we are informed that front man Michael Starr is in desperate need of some physical attention, even though his partner actively disgusts him. What’s a horny rock star to do? Look no further than the title for the answer:
L.A. guitarist Caleb Bingham (Ascension, Ex-Five Finger Death Punch) has joined Swedish death/black metal band Zonaria. The band is currently on tour with Nile, Dew-Scented, Melechesh, and Darkrise throughout Europe.
Zonaria guitarist Emil Nyström commented: "Caleb has been a great friend of mine for quite some time. And while recording our third CD Simon felt like he wanted to focus on the singing. So from now on Simon will only handle the vocals and Caleb has stepped in as our new guitarist. He’s an amazing guitarist and has a fantastic view on music and guitar playing."
Caleb also comments on joining the band: "It’s fantastic to be out on the road with Zonaria. I’ve always been a fan of death metal music, especially death metal music from Sweden, so playing with what I would consider to be one of the best modern Swedish death metal bands is both a pleasure and an honor. People should most definitely expect some major things coming from Zonaria in the very near future."

Thomas G. Fischer (aka Tom G. Warrior,) the founder of the legendary metal bands Celtic Frost and Hellhammer, and most recently Triptykon, was honoured in London this week when he received the prestigious Golden God award for inspiration. The award was presented to him at the Indigo2/O2 Arena by Cathedral frontman Lee Dorrian. When accepting the award, Fischer stated:
"In my opinion, however, I don't deserve this award. It should instead go to Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, Angel Witch, and Venom, artists who have inspired me and without whom I would not be here tonight."
