French blackened death metal outfit Temple of Baal have a new album in the works. It’s true. I wouldn’t lie to you…unless it was to spare your feelings. The band’s fourth album will be released on Agonia Records…just when, is the question. The label says this fall, but we don’t have an exact date. Right […]

New Cynic Record Coming Along


Paul Masvidal of Cynic says the next Cynic record is sounding “fan-fucking-tastically amazing!” So there you go. Obviously, he’s excited for it. And so am I, to be honest.

Obituary Announce Live Pay-Per-View


Now this is something I feel isn’t exploitative. There are a ton of people who — because of geographical or physical limitations — will never get a chance to see Obituary. But they likely have access to the webernets, which basically puts the world at our fingertips. Thanks, Al Gore! Obituary will perform their first […]

Testament Vocalist Recording In California?

What could it all mean

It seems that’s the case. But the what is the thing that remains a mystery. Testament couldn’t be working on a new album already, could they? Not that I’d complain. I just find it unlikely. Testament’s Chuck Billy posted the picture in this post online, with the caption “Recording with Ross Robinson on Venice Beach.” […]
