Six Feet Under’s Chris Barnes To Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine: “You’re The King Of The Assholes”

Last night Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine publicly took issue with Metal Blade Records founder Brian Slagel over his version of how he unsuccessfully tried to sign Megadeth in the 1980s in his new book “For The Sake Of Heaviness: The History Of Metal Blade Records”. While Mustaine and Slagel appear to have since buried the hatchet, the manner in which Dave Mustaine called out Brian Slagel drew a fiery response from Six Feet Under’s vocalist Chris Barnes. Six Feet Under is signed to Metal Blade Records.

Barnes tweeted the following:

You sir are a FUCKING ASSHOLE.

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine Slams Metal Blade Records Founder Brian Slagel Over His Book

Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine has fired a shot at Metal Blade Records founder Brian Slagel over Twitter. Slagel was promoting his book, “For The Sake Of Heaviness: The History Of Metal Blade Record”‘, via Twitter, to which Mustaine fired off a heated response.

Mustaine appears to disclaim Slagel’s version in the book of a past offer Brian Slagel made while trying to sign Megadeth in 1984. Mustaine tweeted:

The section in the book that Mustaine seems to be referring to reads as follows:

“The only band that I didn’t get that I wished I had was Megadeth. It was between us and a brand new label called Combat, which was part of the Important distrbution firm that we’d started working out with.

Late in 1984 they’d decided that the whole metal thing was starting to happen and they wanted to get on it by creating their own label.

The first band that came onto their radar (and ours at the same time) was Megadeth. In the end, it came down to just a thousand dollars. We had offered them seven thousand dollars, but Combat offered eight, so they went with Combat.

With hindsight, especially given what Megadeth became, I’ve often thought, “Well, maybe I could have gotten a little more money together.” But really, at that time, seven thousand dollars was absolutely the most we had ever offered anybody.

Most of the stuff we were doing involved spending $1,600 to maybe $3,500, at the high end, to make a full record.

Seven grand was a lot of money. I remember Dave Mustaine writing me a really long, heartfelt letter saying how he really wanted to be on Metal Blade, but it just wasn’t meant to be.”

Brian Slagel has since responded to Mustaine, tweeting:

I’m so sorry if I got this wrong or offended you. I do remember talking to your camp at the time. If my memory is wrong again not intended https://t.co/QhkXjcczHE

— Brian Slagel (@brianslagel) October 24, 2017

Mustaine has since tweeted back to Brian Slagel’s apology, offering:

I totally forgive you, but you didn’t talk to us. Please take that out of your book at your next printing and good luck with your project ?? https://t.co/9N25ACQLmd

— Dave Mustaine (@DaveMustaine) October 24, 2017

When it was suggested that Mustaine, who had well documented substance abuse problems around the time, might be hazy on things, Mustaine replied:

Nope. @ellefsondavid confirmed it. Brian apologized, I forgave him, and we worked this out like grown-ups. Is that ok with you? ?? https://t.co/QZeQk7oeZs

Barishi Streams Full New Album “Blood From The Lion’s Mouth”

Vermont’s gritty progressive metal quartet Barishi is now streaming ambitious new full-length album “Blood from the Lion’s Mouth,” which can be heard below.

Regarding the album, the band comments: “We’re really proud of this album. It was an absolute blast to both write and record. We spent last summer at home in Jamaica, Vermont writing constantly. Our goal was to come up with something that was cohesive as a whole but also had an individuality to each track. Our producer Brian Westbrook really went above and beyond with it’s production. He has such clear vision in regards to a song’s structure as well as it’s sonic potential. It was killer to work with him again.”

Barishi’s second full-length album, and first for Season of Mist, will be released worldwide on Sept. 16. The album was recorded by Brian Westbrook at PDP Recording in Greenfield, MA during winter 2015-2016, and features cover art by Brian Mercer.

1. Grave of the Creator
2. Blood From the Lion’s Mouth
3. The Great Ennead
4. Death Moves in Silence
5. Master Crossroads, Baron Cemetery

Redemption launches video for “The Art of Loss” online, featuring guest guitarist Chris Poland

– February 18th, 2016 –

On February 26th, Los Angeles prog-metal outfit Redemption – featuring Nick van Dyk, Ray Alder (Fates Warning, Engine), Sean Andrews, and Chris Quirarte (as well as guitarist Bernie Versailles, who is presently on an indefinite medical hiatus) – will release their sixth full-length, The Art of Loss, via Metal Blade Records worldwide! In anticipation of its release, the band has launched a video for the album’s title track online (featuring guest guitarist Chris Poland). Directed by Brian Cox / Flarelight Films (flarelightfilms.com), “The Art of Loss” video can be viewed here: metalblade.com/redemption

Director Brian Cox comments: “It’s very easy to dwell on the past. To stew in pain, wishing you could get someone or something back that you may have lost. But in the end, you will always have yourself, no matter how much things might change. Nobody can ever take that from you and that’s the message I tried to convey with this video.”

Redemption‘s Nick van Dyk (guitars/keyboards) adds: “We’re very excited to have worked with Brian to bring this song to life in this medium. The story of regret, survival, transcendence and the realization that we have the ability to be authors of our own destiny is brought home with the visuals that Brian has directed. Needless to say, it’s also surreal to perform with the great Chris Poland. This video is a great representation of what Redemption stands for, musically and thematically.”

For another preview of The Art of Loss, please visit metalblade.com/redemption to view the lyric video for the first single, “Damaged” – featuring guest guitarist Marty Friedman – and to pre-order the album in various formats. The second single, “Thirty Silver” – featuring guest guitarists Chris Poland, Marty Friedman, and Chris Broderick – can be heard here: soundcloud.com

Containing over 70 minutes of their unique blend of passion, melody, aggression and complexity, The Art of Loss was produced once again by Tommy Hansen (Helloween, Pagan’s Mind, Pretty Maids, etc.), who worked with the band on 2009′s Snowfall on Judgment Day. The cover artwork was also created by long-time Redemption collaborator Travis Smith (Opeth, Amorphis). Musically, The Art of Loss follows its predecessor (2011′s This Mortal Coil), but their newest work finds composition, musicianship and production taken up another notch, with an array of songs ranging from hard-hitting melodic metal to the 23-minute epic “At Day’s End“– plus, special guest appearances from Chris Broderick, John Bush, Marty Friedman, Simone Mularoni and Chris Poland. See below for the official track-listing!

The Art of Loss track-listing
1. The Art of Loss (featuring Simone Mularoni and Chris Poland)
2. Slouching Towards Bethlehem (featuring Simone Mularoni and Chris Poland)
3. Damaged (featuring Marty Friedman)
