Jacob Hansen and Rob Caggiano

I don’t get why Danish rock and roll outfit Volbeat are so awesome, or why so many metalheads dig them. The band’s appeal alludes me like the mythic Loch Ness Monster. But my college roommate Joe loves ‘em, so I write up news on them to keep him in the know. And you, if you […]

Hurrah, hurrah! We happen to dig Acaro here at GunShyAsssassin, and we’re rather psyched to learn that the band’s working on a new material. More specifically, one new song.

Someone From Terror Offers Up A Deep Thought

Terror has nice fans

A very deep thought. Terror are one of those bands whose early output still gets me amped, but whose latest offerings have left me flaccid. So I’m not excited for the album they have been working on. Yesterday, an unidentified member of Terror logged onto the band’s Twitter page and offered up the following musings […]
