Burn Reunion To Feature Glassjaw Drummer


New York hardcore legends Burn will be reuniting for a set at this year’s Black N’ Blue Bowl. Somehow, I overlooked this factoid when the lineup was revealed. I was probably too distracted to make the connection. Burn has been rather silent since the early 1990s, when lead singer Chaka Malik left to forge Orange […]

Readers’ Bands: This Is Imminent Peril

Imminent Peril

After a long hiatus, I’ve revived the Readers’ Bands column because, well, some of the people who check out the site are also fairly imposing musicians, in groups that should get some recognition but can’t afford publicists to help them achieve it. Being a broke bitch myself, I can relate. Today, we’re all going to […]

Deftones Book West Coast Gigs


The Deftones have not been touring as of late, mostly because they’ve been busy writing a new album that will no doubt be as awesome as a girl who doesn’t flinch when you accidentally put it in the wrong hole. The Deftones do have some festival gigs booked, and to presumably prepare for those, they […]

The Metal Alliance Tour is happening, folks. And we’ve got the first dates announced, bitch. This year’s trek will feature Deicide, Entombed A.D., Hate Eternal, Black Crown Initiate and Svart Crown.

The dudes in Tool are not happy. They’ve gone online to address the leak of a new song they’ve been working on, which follows at the end of this post. “This music leak is unsettling on many levels,” says the band. “First off, it truly sucks to have your unfinished music available on the interweb […]

Skeletonwitch Part With Frontman?


It would look that way. Skeletonwitch’s Facebook page no longer lists Chance Garnette as the band’s singer. This development comes months after Garnette left the band’s tour, which they finished as an instrumental act. Now comes word that the band’s upcoming shows overseas will also not feature Chance. Instead, Andy Horn, formerly of Cannabis Corpse, […]

Dave Mustaine: Megadeth’s LP Nearly Finished

Dave Mustaine

The writing of it, that is. See, those videos that Megadeth released last week showing Chris Adler doing what people love him doing were shot during writing sessions, not the actual recording of the band’s next album. That, according to Dave Mustaine, will all start next week. Adler, Lamb of God’s drummer, and Megadeth’s two […]
