As Blood Runs Black Runs Dry

As Blood Runs Black

The band is done. Kaput. Over. Gone the way of the Dodo. Out like trout. Finished. Deader than Dio. That’s one less band making shitty deathcore, if you ask me. Yes, folks — As Blood Runs Black runs no more. Despite finishing a new record earlier this year, the band won’t be making music any […]

Anvil Part With Bassist


That band Anvil, who I am convinced people only say they like, can’t keep a bassist. The Canadian metal act have parted ways with Sal Italiano and have replaced him with Chris Robertson. That means the band’s back to being entirely Canadian, which I guess was important. Sal joined the band as the replacement for […]

Arsonists Get All The Girls Bassist Quits

Arsonists Get All The Girls

Arsonists Get All The Girls have parted ways with bassist Kyle Stacher. The band has yet to announce the parting, but Stacher’s silence was broken online this week. “I’ve decided to take off my stinky touring shoes and get back to tattooing full time. Tour was fun, but this is where I would rather direct […]

Suffokate Drop Off Tour After Losing Two Members


This band Suffokate just needs to break up already, and stop finding new members. I feel like every other month, this band loses a member. This month, they’ve lost two members. Band guitarist Jason Graff and bassist Ivan Munguia have bounced, forcing Suffokate to drop off their current tour early. The band’s released the following […]

King Diamond Bassist Fired

Hal talks to a babe

If you have kids, the following statement may make you a tad bit jealous: I slept until noon today. I obviously needed the rest, but while I was snoozing, word of bassist Hal Patino’s firing came down. Hal used to be with King Diamond. Now, he’s not. Why? A statement from King Diamond cites “reasons […]

Voivod Parts Ways With Bassist


This is weak sauce to the umpteenth power. Voivod have released the following statement regarding bassist Jean-Yves Theriault’s latest departure: “It saddens us to announce that Voivod will no longer be performing live with Blacky. Jean-Yves has decided to leave the band for his own personal reasons. We wish him all the best. Voivod will […]

Obscura Part Ways With Guitarist, Drummer


Drummer Hannes Grossmann and guitarist Christian Muenzner have left German progressive death metal act Obscura. That fucking sucks. Says Muenzner: “My decision to step down from my position as the lead guitar player in Obscura after more than six years was not an easy one, but even though it may come unexpected for the majority […]

Pestilence Done, Says Frontman


Patrick Mameli, leader of Pestilence, says the band’s over. OVER! “As of now, Pestilence is no longer active in recording new material,” he says. “As a matter of fact, it’s on a permanent hold, as I want to concentrate fully on my new project Necromorph. The style will be more brutal, more crazy, more tech, […]

Emmure Get New Drummer

Mark Castillo

Emmure are another band I should stop writing about altogether, because they’re pure fucking aural bullshit. But for some reason, I can’t stop writing about them. Let’s face it, this blog wouldn’t be as entertaining if all I did was write about bands I love. It would get old fast, and everyone would call me […]

Paul Allender Out Of Cradle Of Filth

Paul Allender

Confirming what everyone already basically figured out, Cradle of Filth vocalist Dani “Filth” Davey told the “Bleedin’ Loud” podcast that the band has split with guitarist Paul Allender. Said Filth: “Paul Allender has left — which not everybody is aware of. We weren’t planning on it, because it was the kind of thing that has […]
