You know that journalism has reached an all-time low when a magazine uses LOLcats as its cover.

But then again, it is just the Eugene Weekly.

    […] teh kitty cover offend teh internerdz? Folks SEEEriously need to lighten up. At least I was introduced to LOLmetal in the comments. […]

  2. Michael G. says:

    Speaking of LOLcats and metal… enter LOLmetal

  3. Vincent. says:

    Pretty close, I think.

  4. Timothy says:

    Manowar looks more like Gay Fetish Bar Metal.

    I think the subgenre for Slipknot is “shitty crap put out by strangely angry white suburbanites”

  5. Vincent. says:

    I’m actually somewhat afraid of anyone who can handle that much Manowar.

    Oh, and apparently Slipknot is “gore metal”. By that, I’m guessing that “Deanna Uutela” has never listened to Carcass.

    She tops it all of with this nauseating bit:

    “I feel sorry for this generation of metal lovers who didn’t get to experience Metallica during their drug years or witness Slayer rise up to become the crowning kings of metal. But all is not lost! There are true metal enthusiasts out there who want to honor and continue the tradition of vintage metal by introducing it to a whole new generation.”


    On the other hand, why the hell would I expect the Eugene Weekly to write convincingly about metal? Gordon Lightfoot at the Cuthbert? Sure. Floydian Slips at the MacDonald? Alright. Whatever “traditional” international band is coming through town this week? Yup.

    But any publication that mistakes Manowar for black metal shouldn’t really bother writing about metal in the first place.

    This picture. Damn it.

  7. CJ Ciaramella says:

    They called Manowar black metal? Uh oh, they better watch out. Manowar is likely to storm their office and put them to the sword. Seriously.

    I have the entire Manowar discography, and every second of it is as epic as that picture.

  8. Vincent. says:

    In one of their music reviews in there, they refer to Manowar as a “black metal” group.

    Have they ever listened to Manowar?

    Have they ever listened to black metal?

    Outrageous. The Weekly has indeed hit a new low.
