Dimmu Borgir: Bloody love a bit of ‘Poker Face’

Think that metal bands only listen to metal bands? Think again.

Every month in our unholy magazine as a part of our Discs Of Doom feature, we ask your favourite bands to name the album that no one will believe they own a copy of. A guilty pleasure of sorts, if you will. Sometimes the answers aren’t all that surprising. Sometimes they’re pretty spectacular.

So, without further ado, here are some of the more unexpected listening habits of some of rock and metal’s greatest names…

LMFAO
SORRY FOR PARTY ROCKING [INTERSCOPE, 2011]
CHOSEN BY: MATT TUCK, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE
“About a year ago I bought an LMFAO album. I don’t love it but there were a couple of singles that were doing well and it’s good fun party music. Stupid and silly but kind of unique, too. I don’t know why I bought it…well I do, actually, I was drunk. Ha ha ha!”

NELSON
AFTER THE RAIN [GEFFEN, 1990]
CHOSEN BY: CHRIS JERICHO, FOZZY
“They were playing (Can’t Live Without Your) Love And Affection on the radio and I was like, ‘Who are these guys?!’ They were cool back then. It’s a really good record!”

KATY PERRY
TEENAGE DREAM [CAPITOL, 2010]
CHOSEN BY: AMY LEE, EVANESCENCE
“OK, I didn’t buy it, it was given to me, but I put it into my iTunes, so it’s Katy Perry. Don’t be hatin’, it’s definitely a guilty pleasure. I like that son E.T. I wonder if there could be a heavy version of it…”

LADY GAGA
BORN THIS WAY [INTERSCOPE, 2011]
CHOSEN BY: CRISTINA SCABBIA, LACUNA COIL
“I like it, it has good songs, but the previous album was a bit more sophisticated. I think the one before sounded more genuine. I like things when they’re more spontaneous than contrived.”

GWEN STEFANI
THE SWEET ESCAPE [INTERSCOPE, 2003]
CHOSEN BY: SHAGRATH, DIMMU BORGIR
“It’s actually pretty cool. Of course, pop music isn’t my favourite, but I’ve become much more open-minded in the last decade – to me, good music is good music. Every time we’re on a tour bus with a bunch of metalheads, it’s always a kickstarter to put on something like this or Lady Gaga. Everyone always sings along!”

DIMMU BORGIR
SPIRITUAL BLACK DIMENSIONS [NUCLEAR BLAST, 1999]
CHOSEN BY: DANI FILTH, CRADLE OF FILTH
“What do I like about it? I didn’t say I liked it, I just said I’ve got it! Ha, ha, ha! But it’s some of their better stuff.”

SHAMPOO
WE ARE SHAMPOO [FOOD, 1994]
CHOSEN BY: MR LORDI, LORDI
“I was a big fan of Shampoo. They were fairly big everywhere…for about five minutes. I liked the attitude, and I liked the choruses – Viva La Megababes and songs like that. I like girls singing.”

MICHAEL JACKSON
BAD [EPIC, 1987]
CHOSEN BY: ANGELA GOSSOW, ARCH ENEMY
“Thriller and Bad are two of my favourite albums, but if I had to choose it would probably be Bad. He was obviously a very tortured artist, but he made fantastic music.”

DEPECHE MODE
GREATEST HITS [AMIGA, 1987]
CHOSEN BY: SERJ TANKIAN, SYSTEM OF A DOWN
“What’s interesting is to see from someone else’s perspective and look at what they’d be surprised at. I didn’t listen to any rock and metal until my late teens. I like goth and New Wave in the 80s – Depeche Mode, Sisters Of Mercy, Bauhaus…”

BABAMANIA
JUNGLELIVIN’ [TEICHIKU, 2003]
CHOSEN BY: WADE MACNEIL, GALLOWS
“Alexisonfire was on a major label in Japan, so when I went to the offices to meet everybody. I got pretty much their entire record catalogue – all this J-pop stuff that is absolutely insane sounding to me. It sounds so foreign, and that’s why I absolutely love it.”

NICKI MINAJ
PINK FRIDAY [Cash Money, 2010]
CHOSEN BY: DAVEY HAVOK, AFI
“It’s difficult because people have so many varied ideas of what I am into! I love Nicki Minaj, I particularly like her first record. The things she does with her voice, what she says, her flow, the continuity of her entire aesthetic, she is just wildly talented. I’ve seen her perform live and it’s all just very fun!”

KC AND THE SUNSHINE BAND
PART 3 [TK, 1976]
CHOSEN BY: STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN
“I was gassing up my RV the other day, and in the US, sometimes they have a television on the gas pump, playing commercials or music. They were playing I’m Your Boogie Man, and I was groovin’! I had a couple of those records back in the day!”

JANET JACKSON
RHYTHM NATION 1814 [A&M, 1989]
CHOSEN BY: LZZY HALE, HALESTORM
“This one actually isn’t my fault! When I went out on tour with Amy Lee from Evanescence she gave me this album. We’d had a few too many to drink one night and we started singing Janet Jackson, so Amy sent it to me, and then she rented us this karaoke machine for the end of tour party and we sang a couple of those songs… We weren’t bad, actually!”

BRITNEY SPEARS
FEMME FATALE [2011, JIVE]
CHOSEN BY: MICHAEL STARR, STEEL PANTHER
“I like it because every time I see her I want to fuck her.”

MILES DAVIS
KIND OF BLUE [COLUMBIA, 1959]
CHOSEN BY: JAMES LABRIE, DREAM THEATER
“That’s one of my favourite jazz albums. Would people think I go for that? Ha ha!”

EMINEM
THE MARSHALL MATHERS LP [INTERSCOPE, 2000]
CHOSEN BY: CHRIS MOTIONLESS, MOTIONLESS IN WHITE
“I love Eminem. When I was getting into music, it was all heavy, then he came in and that was the first [hip hop] I was able to listen to and think, ‘This is the same as those bands!’ Everything he does sounds so fucking heavy.”

Tarja Virmakari of Metal Shock Finland and TrueMetal.it recently conducted an interview with bassist/vocalist Jeff Walker of reactivated British extreme metal pioneers CARCASS. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.

Asked about his views on illegal music downloading, Walker said: “It can be a positive thing, if people download an album, hear it, enjoy it and buy it. The danger is that there is a hard core of people who download and never buy anything, and that’s damaging to the music scene. They’re not supporting anybody, they’re not supporting the artists as fans. But for the most part, I think it’s positive. Because I understand fully why people do it. There’s so much music out there; people don’t have the money or the resources to buy everything. And also people have probably spent or wasted money in the past on albums that have disappointed them. So it gives people a chance to test something before they buy it. I personally don’t think it’s any different to hearing music on the radio. But, like I say, it’s that hard core of people, who… their attitude is very nihilistic and it’s out of step with the idea of what being a fan is about. You shouldn’t be trying to damage the artist who’s trying to being people pleasure. We’re not at war with the audience.”

CARCASS‘ new album, “Surgical Steel”, sold around 8,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 41 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released on September 16 in the U.K., September 13 in the rest of Europe and September 17 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records. The effort was produced by Colin Richardson (FEAR FACTORY, MACHINE HEAD, NAPALM DEATH, SLIPKNOT, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE) and mixed by Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, ACCEPT, EXODUS, ARCH ENEMY).

Joining guitarist Bill Steer and bassist/vocalist Jeff Walker in CARCASS‘ current incarnation are new drummer Dan Wilding (ABORTED, TRIGGER THE BLOODSHED) and guitarist Ben Ash (PIG IRON, DESOLATION, LIQUEFIED SKELETON).

In a recent interview with Chile’s Radio Futuro, Walker stated about the new CARCASS CD: “We think we’ve made a good album, so it’s gonna be very interesting when people get to hear the record. We can’t wait to see what people think.”

He continued: “It sounds like CARCASS. Even the drumming sounds like CARCASS. Everything about it… I think it’s gonna shock people, how good it is. I think it’s got all the elements that people like, yet it still sounds fresh. So that’s all I can say, really, ’cause we don’t really sound like any other band, and the fact that after 17 years, we wrote music and it still sounds like CARCASS, I think it’s good.”

Regarding the direction of the new CARCASS album, Walker previously stated: “We’ve taken stylistic cues from all the albums because it’s in our blood, but it’s no rehash or mess of ideas. I think it sounds almost like the missing link between the third and forth albums but with some groove in there. I’ve jokingly christened some parts ‘trad blast’ and some ‘death sleaze’… don’t think for a minute this is just some nostalgic throwback album — we’re setting up another 17 years of ideas for other bands to copy and clean up on. [laughs]”

“Surgical Steel”, the new album from reactivated British extreme metal pioneers CARCASS, sold around 8,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 41 on The Billboard 200 chart.

“Surgical Steel” has registered the following first-week chart positions so far:

Finland: #6
Germany: #10
Austria: #24
USA: #41
Sweden: #42
UK: #47
Australia: #59
Netherlands: #73
France: #80
Ireland: #84
Belgium: #117 (Flanders #130, Wallonia #87)

Commented the band: “Wow! Well, we had every faith in the fact that we’ve recorded a very strong album and we had every faith in our label, Nuclear Blast, that they would work their asses off — but this is AMAZING news!!! This even more impressive when you consider that our album ‘leaked’ a month before the release date AND that we didn’t target the charts in the summer when it was ‘soft’ and easier to chart high.

CARCASS was up against some strong mainstream releases this past week!

“Thanks to all the listeners who bought the album — it goes to prove to all the cynics out there wrong — people DO still buy albums, especially metalheads!

“If you bought the album, you should be proud of yourselves!

“Again, thanks from us!”
