Dio didn't think America was Metal either.

So today was the anniversary of the death of Ronnie James Dio, which I wasn't aware of until somebody reminded me only a few hours ago. I thought today felt especially shitty and unmetal, more so than usual. Nothing really went right for me and my motivation to do anything today was all but non-existent. The balance of the universe was just totally off all day. My heart still hangs heavy for the unsurmountable loss to the metal community, and I think the best way for me to remember the forefather of truly epic heavy metal would be to gloat about how he more or less agreed with my last violation in a 2006 interview:

Straight from the man himself. Dear all 50 states, you still have to blow me.

    So sad yet so true. America is a trendy country... damn. R.I.P. Dio. Too bad you're not here to make any more great music

  2. Raul's status:
    [ ]Not told
    [ ]Told

  3. R.I.P Dio, still regretting the fact that I missed Heaven & Hell a few years back.

    Also, ToxicWaltz, I don't know what you're talking about. Dio was referring to the American mainstream, which I agree is a total crock. The American metal scene though, is something completely different (and no, I don't mean crap bands like LoG or Pantera).

  4. Exactly why I'm moving to Norway.

  5. I've got to get out of America.
