Upon An Oaken Throne, This Black Metal Master Awaits Goblets Of Royal Blood.

Mayhem - a band who simultaneously mastered black metal and bacon.

NOTE: Episode re-airs Saturday, November 20th at 2:30pm PST on G4. The segment is about the three "toughest rockers" - Ozzy, G.G. Allin, and Mayhem. Hope you can catch it! It's also available on iTunes, PSN, Xbox Live and Zune.

Yep, that's me. There's a new show called "That's Tough" coming to G4 TV in October focusing on the toughest people, places and things in the history of the world. Naturally, they chose to have me be on it. Har! They actually had me playing the lead guy from the infamous Norwegian black metal band Mayhem who killed himself years ago. Not sure when the episode / segment is gonna air for sure yet, but I'll be sure to post about it as soon as I hear more.

Anyway, it was a great shoot and I had a lot of fun being up on stage with that severed pig head while screaming in front of a crazed, headbanging audience. I've been a rocker of some sort in the last two shoots I've done... looks like I'm already being typecast. Actually, seeing myself in all that makeup really brings me back to the days when I was working on the ol' Metal Mockery site as I'm sure many of you old school I-Mockery chums recall. The Logo Deciphering section was always my personal favorite part of that site. Good times.

During some of my down time on the shoot, I was checking out one of the boxes filled with props and I found something that I knew would make for a perfect picture:

Warriors! Come out to playeeeeeaaaaaay!

By combining my black metal costume with the baseball gear I found, I turned myself into a member of the Baseball Furies gang from The Warriors! Now if you'll excuse me, I clearly need to go find some nail polish remover.

QUESTION: If I was going to start up a metal band of some sort, a) what would you name the band and b) what would be my stage name?

Rog is DEAD! Literally, as your costume can attest.

Hmmm...dunno what your band would be called, but your stage name needs to be Satanscythe. (Hellhammer is already taken.)

Awesome, -RoG-! Me thinks you should take such looks into consideration for your future Halloween costume.

As for the metal band name... That's a tough one, as I'm not into metal, but what about The Dead Pickles?

That's really cool that you're doing all these heavy metal shoots- I approve! Please do post a video or something up from the show you were on- that'd be really cool to see. I remember Metal Mockery very well!

Band Name: Ghosts of Pac Man

Stage Name: Mockesto (you know, like Mephisto... ehh its a stretch I'm trying to make it relevant to I-Mockery)


L D (Guest) on 08/17/2010 10:55 pm

Oh yeah, just curious seeing as this is metal related... what ever happened to A.L.E RoG? I remember listening to that stuff on way back when! You should do remasters of that stuff and put on here!

Band name:I-mockery of death

Dunno about the stage name though.

Julio on 08/18/2010 7:22 am

Come to think of it, the name I should have suggested is The Rotten Pickles, with Belmont Von Pickle as their frontman.

... And yes, I do agree with MrEff about the red eye effect in the second photo that makes you look genuinely insane.

So Rog is the episode just about Dead or is it about Blackmetal in general? Cause for as goofy as people seem to think all the make-up and symphony-like melody's those guys aren't joking around..

Take Count Grishnackh of the same band (and quite a few others)for example. He murdered another bandmate (Euronymous)and burned down 4 churches. He served 16 of his 21 years in jail and just got out on parole last year.

Wait.. having typed that all out and realizing how much crap they did/do, the episode isn't about Mayhem themselves is it?

-RoG- on 08/18/2010 9:34 pm

Thanks for the comments on the photos guys... some fine band and stage name suggestions so far too. Tuna Juice sounds so hardcore. Keep 'em coming!

L D - Wow, an old A.L.E. fan eh? Always good to hear from somebody who listened to all those old musical comedy tracks of ours. I actually have both albums linked to on our site forums currently. You can check them out at the following links and download all of the mp3s:

Abbreviated. Life. Expectancy.
"Songs You've Never Heard Before":

Abbreviated. Life. Expectancy.
"Negative Patient Healthcare Outcome":

Starscream - I believe the episode is about the toughest bands of all time, and that particular segment I'm in is indeed about all the members of Mayhem. I play the lead guy (Dead) but we also shot the bandmate getting murdered too (yes, I got to die TWICE in one day... awesome.)


Awesome Metal Band Name (Guest) on 08/19/2010 12:33 am

My Metal band name would be "The Stinkin' Meatflaps."

or I was watching Scared Straight and that one eyed prisoner threw the shoes of the two guys that he didn't like and said "Go Home Barefoot Ya Faggot" That would be a funny name. A bit offensive, but it's whatever.


Heattokun (Guest) on 08/19/2010 12:44 am

I have two Ideas:
1: Mr. Blocky's Henchmen. Stagename: Assplants.
or 2: Boner Soup. Stagename: Ruler of Gates(or RoG)

(Speaking of M.U.S.C.L.Es- you mentioned Mr.Blocky/Sunshine killing people using his rollers. I just gotta say, I read the manga, and you were spot on with this. Cause he killed someone and brutally injured someone else.)

Dress like the Baseball Furies but call yourselves the Turnbull ACs, would totally mess with the minds of all the boppers out there.


ash Davies (Guest) on 08/24/2010 1:39 am

Call yourselves S.T.A.K (sick twisted arse clowns)

Your stage name could be Jugglrog.


ZYX (Guest) on 08/24/2010 6:58 pm

RoG, playing... Dead?
I'm not sure whether I'm offended or impressed at how INSANELY AWESOME that is!!
