Soundgarden, Smashing Pumpkins Having War Of Words

Billy Corgan

Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan’s like me — he’s always got something to say, and generally, it’s not very flattering. Corgan recently put Soundgarden on blast for cashing in with their reunion tour. “There are those bands that are essentially coming back only to make money — playing their old albums, and maybe somewhere in […]

Morbid Angel Cancel Canadian Dates

Morbid Angel

I’m actually sick of writing about bands being denied entry into Canada. It seems to happen all too often, especially with metal bands. Morbid Angel have been turned away at the border, meaning they have cancelled their show tonight in Montreal, and tomorrow’s scheduled show in Toronto. “Regretfully, as much as we wanted to continue […]

Ex-Arsis Drummer Joins The Final Sleep

Look, it's Mike

Former Arsis drummer Mike Van Dyne is back behind a kit. He’s joined Troy, New York-based metal band The Final Sleep. The band features in its ranks Jay VanDervoort and Mike Stack of Burning Human and Jeff Andrews of Armor Column. “Mike is an amazing drummer, and we are very excited to have him on […]

Emmure Douche’s Lame Clothing Line Restocking

...because Frankie looks like the Swedish chef

So, Emmure frontman Frankie Palmeri is arguably a bigger douche than any single member of Five Finger Death Punch. In fact, Emmure and 5FDP should tour together. I guarantee there’d be at least three rapes each tour stop [UPDATE: I totally forgot they just toured together. Duh! Why did I forget? Clearly, I don't care […]

Darkthrone Reissuing A Blaze In The Northern Sky

A Blaze In The Northern Sky

This is fucking rad, and if you think otherwise, I feel like we can’t be friends anymore. A Blaze In The Northern Sky, Darkthrone’s ground-shattering second album, will be reissued soon to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the album’s release. Hailed as an album of true scene-shifting greatness, the album saw a whole new blacker […]

Phil Anselmo Open To Pantera Reunion With Zakk Wylde

Pantera

Vinnie Paul may think a reunion of Pantera without his late brother “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott would tarnish the band’s legacy, but Phil Anselmo’s down. The former Pantera and current Down frontman was asked by the Village Voice about Zakk Wylde’s proposal to fill in for Dime for a Pantera reunion. He’s not totally opposed to […]

Mayhem Are In The Studio! Mayhem Are In The Studio!

Mayhem

HAILS! That’s right, kids. I knew I sensed a disturbance in the force. Norwegian black metal icons Mayhem have entered a recording studio in Budapest, Hungary, to begin tracking their new album for an early 2013 release. Mayhem played several festivals in Europe this past summer and will play a special club show in Budapest […]

Deftones’ Chi Cheng Battling More Infections

Chi Cheng

Not a day goes by that I don’t stop to think about Chi Cheng and send him some good thoughts. The Deftones bassist, as you well know, has been in and out of a coma since 2008, when he was involved in a terrible car accident. Today, the One Love For Chi site was updated, […]

Papa Roach Singer Nearly Offed Himself

Surprise -- this guy has substance abuse issues

I know there’s a ton of obvious jokes to be made here, but do I really need to make them? I mean, I guess we could simply mock him for not having the guts to go through with it, but, that wouldn’t be cool. Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix told the Associated Press he suffers […]

New Song From QOTSA Frontman Josh Homme Streaming Online

Josh Homme

Check this out! Yes, yes…I too can not wait for new Queens of the Stone Age, and even more than that, I’m anxious for another Them Crooked Vultures LP. Until both those things happen, here’s an unofficial stream of Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme’s new single “Nobody To Love.” It follows at […]
