    According to Mirror, two members of the British metalcore band HUNG have created hilarious new video with tips on making the perfect cup of tea.Barnaby Oakley and Paul Benford shot the clip called "How to make a METAL cup of tea, with Barnaby roaring: "Take your sacred bag of tea, one's all you need not two or three. Pour your boiling water in. Burn its body and wait for a min."Barnaby wrote on his Facebook page: "Me and Paul Benford are here to teach the world how to make a brutal cup of tea... with the aid of metal music."He added: "I'm sick of seeing people slaughter this beautiful British beverage, help us educate the public and share this around."According to The Washington Post, tea consumption in the United Kingdom per person has fallen considerably in the past four decades, dropping from almost 68 grams per week in 1974 to only 25 grams per week in 2014. The huge decrease is being blamed largely on the fact that tea drinking has fallen out of favor with younger people who don't have the time or the interest to prolong the tradition.

    In a brand new interview with OC Weekly, LAMB OF GOD singer Randy Blythe was asked if he feels optimistic or pessimistic about the current state of the world and the looming presidential election. He responded: "The election is looking pretty grim. Everything is a mess. From the train wreck that was the Republican party's nomination process… The establishment doesn't like who the nominee is. And it is pretty much the same with the Democrats; Hillary [Clinton] is having a hard time gaining traction over young people."He continued: "There was this obituary printed recently in the Richmond-area newspapers it went viral, but it said that a woman who died faced the prospect of voting for [Donald] Trump or Clinton, and chose to instead pass on and be with her Lord. I feel that way sometimes, I understand where that lady was coming from."Blythe added: "This election has changed the way things are going to run. There is not a lot of statesmanship coming out of anyone, particularly the Trump side. Anyone who communicates best in 140 characters or less is not someone I want running my country. It's more like a professional wrestling match, not a presidential election."So far, I am not impressed with either though, Clinton or Trump. As far as the world goes, I swing widely from day to day and even sometimes minute to minute. Sometimes I think this is the best thing in the world; others I think we're all going to Hell in a hand basket."At the end of last year, Blythe made it clear that he was not impressed with Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump, saying that he would "leave America" if the the real estate magnate and former reality TV star becomes President Barack Obama's successor. He told Metal Insider: "I think [Trump] is going to burn himself out. I think he's going to say something so overarchingly stupid that people are finally going to be unable to accept what he's saying anymore. But I almost think he's a purposeful clown, a tool."He continued: "I don't know if he really wants to be President. He might just be a foil for the Republican party to say, 'We've gotta be tough right now in our international relations policy, but not with this guy,' so they'll get someone who looks more moderate into office. They'll say, 'We still need to be strong, hawkish right now, but no, not Donald Trump.' I mean, it's ludicrous the things that he says. He's making shit up."Blythe added: "I'm trying to read between the lines here and see if that's what's going on. If they're in a back room somewhere and Donald Trump is saying, [adopts Trump voice]: 'I'm gonna say that we should pull a Nazi Germany maneuver and make all Muslims wear a yellow crescent moon on their arm,' like the Gestapo did with the Jews in Nazi Germany."He could just be a clown. If he is the president, though, I am leaving America 'till he's gone."Back in August 2015, Blythe told the "Metal Shop" radio show about Trump: "Donald Trump does not know what the common man does. He has no clue what the average working person goes through in order to pay their bills. He does not give a fuck about you; he gives a fuck about protecting big business and the lobbies. You know what I mean? So fuck that guy, and fuck his hair. He has no need to be the president of the United States. Just 'cause you're rich doesn't mean you should be president of the United States."Blythe went on to say: "Let's take away the campaign funding, right? Let's take it all out. The Internet is free, okay? Why don't you speak about real issues. Take away the money. You know what I mean? They don't need a bazillion dollars to run a presidential campaign; I'm sorry, it's just not true. Go to YouTube, you know?"Not just the presidency, but our Congress has been a disgrace. Bipartisan politics, fighting over party lines. Why don't they care about the American people instead of whether you're a Democrat or a Republican. You know what I mean? Let's deal with some issues."

    Video: DIO DISCIPLES Perform New, Original Music At 'Ride For Ronnie' Event DIO DISCIPLES, which pays tribute to Ronnie James Dio and is fully supported by Dio's widow/manager, Wendy, performed three new, original songs during the band's May 22 appearance at the "Ride For Ronnie" motorcycle rally and concert for Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund in Encino, California. Fan-filmed video footage of one of the tracks, which is apparently called "'Till The End Of Time", can be seen below.DIO DISCIPLES' lineup for the "Ride For Ronnie" event consisted of the following musicians:* Tim "Ripper" Owens (JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH) - Vocals* Oni Logan (LYNCH MOB) - Vocals* Craig Goldy (DIO) - Guitar* Bjorn Englen (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN) - Bass* Scott Warren (DIO, HEAVEN & HELL) - Keyboards* Simon Wright (AC/DC, DIO, OPERATION: MINDCRIME) - DrumsSome of the recent DIO DISCIPLES shows have also included singer Joe Retta (SWEET, HEAVEN & EARTH). Joe hails from Rochester, New York and and was raised on '70s R&B and rock during an era when, as he describes it, "music had more soul and was more diverse." His influences include such luminaries as Stevie Wonder, Steve Marriott, Paul Rodgers, Robert Plant and, of course, Ronnie.Speaking to Hek82 at the "Ride For Ronnie" event, Owens stated about DIO DISCIPLES' plans to record and release original music (see video below): "Craig has really been instrumental in getting these songs written and trying to get it going on. And Joe and Oni [have] been doing a lot of shows with DIO DISCIPLES. I hadn't been with DIO DISCIPLES for over a year, and they asked me to come do this [event]. They're really trying to push DIO DISCIPLES to put some music out — Wendy's been pushing it, and Craig's been pushing it — so these three we have here was three good oneswe've already recorded. So it makes it special and it makes it even cooler that DIO DISCIPLES is gonna do our own thing."In a recent interview with Myglobalmind, Goldy stated about the formation of DIO DISCIPLES: "You see, the band DIO was run like a family. So when your family member dies, the other members of the family that are left behind often try to do things to keep their loved one's memory alive. So that's where the DIO DISCIPLES came from. Wendy and Simon [Wright, sometime DIO DISCIPLES drummer] called me and said, 'We should really do something.' Because there were all these tributes going on for Ronnie; some of them were just trying to cash in on his passing and some of them were legitimate. However, we said, 'We are his family we should do something.' So that is where DIO DISCIPLES came from."Goldy told Music Life Magazine that DIO DISCIPLES live performances are unique experiences. He said: "At every DIO DISCIPLES concert, there is a moment when the audience and band really connect. I am getting chills just talking about it. There are people in the audience looking up to the sky and singing at the top of their lungs with tears in their eyes, singing to Ronnie in heaven saying they miss him. It's just beautiful, and that's what the project was for."
