Having parodied stage acting of guitarists just starting out in his clip "10 ways to hold a guitar (for beginners)", Jared Dines’ deconstruction of metal musicians continues with the below video "10 Ways to Hold a Guitar" (for advanced guitarists).
Just in case you have missed the first clip we have both of them for your enjoyment below, showing Jared Dines (vocalist of Dissimulator) hilariously imitating the distinctive ways in which various guitarists stand and move on-stage. And as usual Dines’ observations are spot-on.
Check them out now below.

Watch Protest the Hero Vocalist Rody Walker Asking Alexandria for a chance below.
Nancy Pagan Animation, the creators of "He-Man Sings Mercyful Fate" video, have returned with another metal-related cartoon "Sons of Northern Darkness", which is apparently going to be a regular series. As you can probably guess from the title, the show is about the black metal veterans Immortal.
The specific premise is as follows: "In the fall of 1995, Black Metal band, Immortal, set out to make a string of music videos for their upcoming album. With little to no-budget, they walked into the woods outside their hometown of Bergen, Norway, never to be seen again. This is their story."
Check out the first episode below:
In recent months we've been subjected to fart metal and Jewish metal, and now it's time for baby metal (nope, not the Japanese school girl one).
An absolutely nightmare-inducing video is now online from Job For A Cowboy bassist Nick Schendzielo's YouTube channel Bassfordays. This time, Revocation's Dave Davidson lends his guitar talent for "Newborns." Experience a jazzy, avant-garde hell below.
Filthy Frackers created an 8-bit video game trailer for "The Big Four" featuring none other than Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax in classic video game form.
The video takes classics such as Metallica’s "One", Slayer’s "Raining Blood", Megadeth's "Seating Bullets" and Anthrax's "Madhouse" and gives it a chiptune 8-bit twist, complete with video game visuals and cameos from the likes of Mario and Bowser in recreations of their songs.

Dissimulator vocalist Jared Dines is famous for making entertaining parody videos in his spare time such as "10 Ways to Hold a Microphone" or "The Moment Djent was Invented."

As the Metal Grasshopper series draws to a dramatic and monumental close, the final episode finds Philip H. Anselmo and delusional manchild Dave Hill mending their often tumultuous relationship before Hill is released back into the wild.
Check out the sixth and final segment in the series below. If you missed it, be sure to watch Part 5 over at this location.
Apparently nobody sent Pastor Steven Anderson from the Faithful Word Baptist Church the news that the Satanic panic ended a couple of decades ago, because he's decided to take aim at metal bands.
In an amusingly ludicrous hour long video titled "The Jews and Their Lies (Part 1 of 2)," Anderson argues that the bands Pantera, Black Sabbath, and Judas Priest are all Satanic... somehow because of the Talmud.
If you haven't bashed your head against a wall repeatedly in awhile, you could always watch the video below (the references to Pantera start at the 21:48 mark).
For those who may have seen the story trending on Facebook some time back, yes, Anderson is the same pastor who said the act of being gay should be illegal and punishable by death, stating "Here's what the Bible says, Leviticus 20:13, 'If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.' And that, my friend, is the cure for AIDS. It was right there in the Bible all along. Because if you executed the homos, like God recommends, you wouldn't have all this AIDS running rampant."
Known to ruffle a few feathers from time to time, Decrepit Birth's Samus wishes you a happy Hanukkah and just released his latest work of art in the form of a song and video titled "Jewish Metal."
In non-ridiculous news, Decrepit Birth has been working on new material which will be the follow-up to the 2010 release, "Polarity."
Some intrepid YouTube user has synced up "Life of Fear" by Lorna Shore to typical online cat shenanigans. Enjoy the cutesy brutality below. As an added level of hilarity, be sure to actually go the clips YouTube page and check out the level of work that went into making the video description ridiculous.
Just in time for the holiday woes, the Wagoner Brothers have launched a lyric video for their hysterical parody using the Ghost song "A Year Zero." The original song appears on the 2013 release "Infestissumam."
This parody is sure to lift your spirits just in time with a little yuletide cheer. Check it out here:
"Metal Grasshopper" continues with episode 5 "Vulgar Display of Feelings," in which metal god Philip H. Anselmo agrees to undergo group counseling with delusional manchild Dave Hill in an effort to get the goat that also happens to be his grandmother back safe and sound.
There's not a dry seat in the house as Dr. Joe Randazzo helps Philip and Dave get in touch with their feelings. Watch this one with the whole family probably. If you missed it, be sure to catch part 4 at this location.
While Immortal's Abbath and Demonaz battle over who has the right to use the band's name, why not watch a Sock-Puppet parody of the band singing a black metal Christmas song?
Check out the Sock-Puppet Immortal parody playing a black metal Christmas song below.
Fear Factory, which just cancelled 2015 European tour dates to work on an upcoming ninth album, has now checked in from the road with a Thanksgiving message to fans:
"Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Enjoy this day with your family and friends.
"We are in India and they do not celebrate Thanksgiving here but that doesn't mean that we can't celebrate a Thanksgiving with our metal brothers."
In Metal Grasshopper: Episode 4, metal overlord Philip H. Anselmo allows delusional man-child, Dave Hill loose on an unsuspecting public where he meets an actual woman.
Anselmo also schools Hill on stage banter, corpse paint, and other important topics. Later Anselmo and Hill get in a huge argument from which they may never recover! Hill requests group counseling. There is also breakfast cereal.
In Metal Grasshopper Episode 3, Philip H. Anselmo puts delusional manchild Dave Hill to the test with a round of heavy metal flash cards.
Later, Anselmo makes Hill sit in a closet for a seriously long time while he makes an awesome salad. Hill also rents a goat, discusses the metal worth of butterflies and more... In short, this one pretty much has everything. Check out part 3 below, thanks to Metal Injection.
Metal Grasshopper is a new web series in which comedian/NPR darling Dave Hill travels to the wilds of Louisiana to get schooled in the ways of heavy metal by legendary frontman Philip H. Anselmo (Down, Pantera, Superjoint Ritual, Philip H. Anselmo And The Illegals, et al). You can still also see Part 1 and Part 2 online. More...
