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 […]

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.

Obscura Part Ways With Guitarist, Drummer


Drummer Hannes Grossmann and guitarist Christian Muenzner have left German progressive death metal act Obscura. That fucking sucks.

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.

TesseracT Lose Singer, Get New One

Dan Tompkins

This band TesseracT holds on to singers like a fat kid holding a bowling bowl after scarfing down a bucket of fried chicken. That’s to say not very well.

Glass Cloud Lose Bassist, Drummer

Glass Cloud

I’ve tried to get into Glass Cloud, but failed miserably. Perhaps others of you are into them. Either way, it’s a slow news day and Glass Cloud lost its rhythm section.
