Reason #666 Why The 80’s Were Cool: There Was A Ronnie James Dio Video Game Called “Holy Diver”

The hardcore metalheads over at Metal Injection just posted about their recent discovery of a Ronnie James Dio video game called “Holy Diver”.  The text that follows comes from the game itself. Strap yourself in kids, because it’s a long strange trip…

It is the 666th year of the world of magic. The Black Slayer, Demon King of the Underground Dark Empire, has extended the world of darkness and weakened the power of King Crimson whose wisdom has guided the world of magic for generations.

The 16th Crimson Emperor Ronnie 4th entrusted his two infant sons, Randy and Zack, to his faithful servant Ozzy. The three escaped the forces from another dimension in the hope to bring light back into the world.

The next 17 years were difficult but Randy, Zack, and Ozzy devoted themselves to the cause of Holy Magic Justice. The Black Slayer had further extended his empire over the countryside and the interdimensional forces were even more powerful. Randy needed to find the Royal Coat Of Arms of the Crimson to battle the demons. He set out alone to carry out the will of his surrogate father Ozzy who had passed away. Thus begins the Legend Of The Holy Magic King’s Justice.

According to Hardcoregaming101, Holy Diver was the brainchild of Japanese company, Irem. The game never made it to America due to Nintendo’s strict “no religious references” policy.  And, as if a video game featuring Ronnie James Dio wasn’t metal enough already, the game also featured Slayer, King Crimson, Ozzy, Randy Rhodes. Very metal mind has been blown!

The headbangers over at The Gauntlet published an amusing list of their favorite heavy metal auto-correct faux pas. And to auto-corrects credit, it’s pretty much on the money with most of these “were you looking for this”, suggestions…

Everything Is Better With Corpse Paint! Bargin Bin Blasphemy Makes Bad Records Evil

Bargin Bin Blasphemy proves that just like Immortal, everything is better with corpse paint.

My new favorite Tumblr, Bargin Bin Blasphemy, has come up with the genius idea of taking old records, tricking the covers black metal style. Because just like Immortal, everything is better with corpse paint. And since it’s the holidays, I thought I’d share some of Bargin Bin’s “Christmas” themed creations.

In other very metal news, the black mass witches behind Bargin Bin Blasphemy say that they will be making their one-of-a-kind creations available for purchase soon. Bargin Bin is brand new to the world of Tumblr, and I for one can’t wait to see what else they come up with. So stay tuned, and have a grim and necro yule.

Bang A Gong! Every Episode Of The Marc Bolan Show Now Available On YouTube

Episode #6 of The Marc Bolan Show “Marc”. Featuring David Bowie and Generation X.

The Glitter Rockers at Dangerous Minds hipped me to the fact that every episode of  Marc Bolan’s TV show “Marc“, are now available on YouTube. The show ran for it ran for only six weeks in the Autumn of 1977, before Bolan died in a car accident in London, nine days after filming what would be the last episode of the series, episode #6 (above).

Guest on the short lived rock fest included The Jam, The Bay City Rollers, The Boomtown Rats, Hawkwind, Thin Lizzy, Roger Taylor of Queen, David Bowie, and Generation X. Even as I write this, it feels like a dream. Which is exactly how the show makes you feel when you watch it. And yes, there is such a thing as the “Marc Bolan Dancers“, who I’m sure all came dancing out of the womb. Never has there been, or ever will there be, a man or a show as cool as Marc. It’s true TV revolution.
