Jack White Collaborating With Insane Clown Posse

What the hell is this?

This is the weirdest news I’ve reported all year. The Insane Clown Posse have collaborated with former White Stripes leader Jack White on a new track called “Leck Mich Im Arsch,” (or “Lick me in the arse”).

For Today Sign With Razor & Tie

She'd work...for today

Figures. For Today are Christian metalcore, Razor & Tie puts out those Kidz Bop records. And is a Christian label [Edit: A publicist for the label says R&T is not Christian, FYI]. No big surprise there. In fact, this was actually the work of Satan. I know it doesn’t sound like it would be, but […]

TesseracT Already Working New Singer Like A Thai Hooker

TesseracT

That’s right, peoples. If you like TesseracT, you probably know they have a new singer. A solid move, in my opinion, since I thought that last dude was fucking awe…full.

Mike Patton Participates In Gainsbourg Tribute

After the jump, you will find yet another example of Patton’s genius. Not that long ago, the Faith No More and Mr. Bungle frontman […]

Jesse Leach Demoing Solo Tracks

Jesse Leach

Hell’s yes! That’s awesome news. After Times of Grace and The Empire Shall Fall frontman Jesse Leach left Killswitch Engage, I always said that he should just go solo. I’m interested to hear what my man comes up with. Apparently, fans of Jesse’s Alive or Just Breathing-era pipes surely will be bummed. “Looks like I […]

Fans Wanting New Slipknot Getting Old Slipknot

Iowa

I know some Slipknot fans. Fine folks, actually — despite their love for Slipknot. Yes, they all mourned the death of Paul Gray, and yes, they’re anxiously awaiting Slipknot’s next move on the recording front — will they or won’t they? They are not getting answers — at least not the kind they want. Corey […]
