Bloodbath

Delight thine ears with the splendorous sounds of Bloodbath, whose new tune is now streaming like urine down a steep hill at the end of this post. Ever have that happen? You’re at the bottom of a small hill talking to some friends, and a piss river just comes dribbling down the road so you […]

More Details Provided On Free Slayer Track

New Slayer

Any day now, there should be a new Slayer track available for free download. It’ll probably be a major disappointment. Say, like the last three albums were. If it’s anything other than that, I’ll shit myself. For reals. I’ll make sure I don’t get up in time, and have an accident on my way to […]

Killswitch Engage Dress Up For “Halloween”

Killswitch Engage

OK, so what would be better than a video of Killswitch Engage from last night’s gig at New Jersey’s Starland Ballroom? Being there. Alas, I couldn’t make it out. Fucking job keeps me from doing so much with my life. But anyways, not everyone could attend last night’s gig, for which the band got all […]

Readers’ Bands: California’s Otoño Are Severe

10397836_10152108419761932_4436717379333472740_n

If you like your metal rough, raw, and without all the frills that come with enlisting a capable producer, then you’re going to dig Otoño. From their pictures, it would appear that Otoño has no drummer. Which leads me to believe they use a drum machine. Wouldn’t be the first time a band’s done this […]

Napalm Death, Voivod To Tour

Napalm Death

Why, this is one fucking kick-ass lineup. In support of their forthcoming album, Napalm Death will be touring North America in early 2015 with Voivod, Exhumed, Iron Reagan, and Black Crown Initiate. This, according to that dart at Lambgoat. The trek has not been announced by Napalm Death yet, but some dates for it have […]

Atreyu Plot Next Album

Atreydude

Say it ain’t so, Joe. Fuck, man. That band Atreyu, who I was fairly convinced was old news, has decided to return from its hiatus, with plans to record and release an album now. Why? Who the fuck even likes this band anyways? The band have signed with a new label, the result of a […]

The Deftones Return To The Studio

def

The Deftones are one of my favorite bands. I haven’t hated a single note of theirs. In fact, I think the band’s output has been flawless — it’s matured with the Deftones, and evolved with time, but it’s always been bad-ass. The Deftones have been writing material as of late for their next album, which […]

Exodus Fan Cleared After Posting Lyrics Online

Exodus

It’s about fucking time, man. That 31-year-old Kentucky man who was arrested for posting the lyrics to Exodus’s song “Class Dismissed (A Hate Primer)” has had the charges against him expunged. James E. Evans had been charged with terroristic threatening and served eight days in jail. Why? ‘Cause the song’s about a school shooting. A report […]
