Next month, former adult film and ECW wrestling star Jasmin St. Claire will introduce and host a new metal DVD-zine, "Metal's Dark Side", a new extreme metal video magazine published six times a year nationally through MVD (Music Video Distributors). The first of its kind, this DVD-zine will feature interviews and videos from the most extreme metal acts, ranging in genre from black metal to speed metal to death metal and so forth. The debut issue features interviews with CANNIBAL CORPSE, DEATH ANGEL, SATYRICON, HIMSA (in a special in-studio interview segment), and DAMAGEPLAN, as well as a special tribute to late PANTERA guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott.
Jasmin got her start as an adult film star in 1995, was one of Howard Stern's most popular guests, and had been deemed "America's Most Controversial Sex Symbol" by the time she retired in 1999. Following her retirement from the adult film business, Jasmin joined the wildly popular ECW wrestling circuit, where she quickly became known as one of the most visible personalities, acting as both manager and wrestler in her two-year stint with ECW. Thereafter, she founded the 3PW wrestling company with the Blue Meanie. Following her retirement from the wrestling circuit in 2004, Jasmin began acting in more mainstream movie roles, most recently including her leading role in the forthcoming "National Lampoon Dorm Daze II" movie. Additionally, she serves as a BC Rich and Coffin Case spokesmodel. Finally, in addition to beginning work on her authorized autobiography in the summer of 2005, she is in the process of closing a deal to become host of her own nationally syndicated radio show as a spin-off of the DVD-zine, entitled "Metal's Dark Side Radio with Jasmin St. Claire", beginning in November of 2005.
