Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder Drinks Wine From Fan’s Shoe

The dude abides

You know, when I was a youngster, I thought Pearl Jam were basically going to be my favorite band forever. Alas, it was not meant to be. Heavier shit made its way into my life, and I have never really looked back. If I hear a song off Ten every now and again listening to […]

Metallica Poke Fun At Glastonbury Uproar With Video, Merch

A white shirt?

This weekend, Metallica closed out the Glastonbury festival’s second night in epic fashion — making it the first time a metal band has done that in the fest’s history. Of course, Metallica’s booking drew protests from butt-hurt indie rock fans who didn’t want the tang of metal staining the sanctity of their uptight proceedings. Most […]

Video: Tool’s Adam Jones Shows Off New Riff

Adam Jones

Tool have been working on a new album for what feels like fucking centuries now, so when Adam Jones posts a new riff online, it is cause for celebration amongst fans. Sadly, the new riff he posted this weekend — while new — is being inserted into the middle of an old Tool song for […]

Marilyn Manson’s Russian Show Cancelled Over Bomb Threat

Marilyn Manson

Someone (make that someones) did not want Marilyn Manson performing in Moscow yesterday. A bomb threat was called in, and his scheduled show was nixed. At the end of this post, you can find a video clip from C-Lebrity that shows footage of “religious fanatics” assaulting members of Manson’s entourage outside the band’s hotel in […]

Darkest Hour Releasing Album In August

The band in the studio

I may be the very last site to report about it, because frankly, Darkest Hour doesn’t excite me much, but hey, the band’s got a new album coming out. Hurrah! Tracking on the bastard — called Fuck Waiting Around To Die — was wrapped this past winter. The following teaser indicate the album will be […]

Exmortus Featured In Phone Commercial


This is weird. So, at the end of this post, you will find a commercial for the Virgin Mobile Galaxy S5. Somehow, and for reasons I don’t quite get, the company enlisted Prosthetic Records artists Exmortus to appear in the spot. Kinda cool but also kinda lame. But look, if Virgin Mobile wanted me in […]

Heart-Warming Video Of The Day: Jake’s Download


Like 3-year-old Jake, I wasn’t able to get to the Download Festival this year in the United Kingdom. But Jake’s issue wasn’t money for a plane ticket; he’s friggin’ 3, and it was determined by someone (it’s not clear) that’s too young to rock. Rules. Who needs ‘em? Jake was understandably bummed about missing Download, […]

Through The Eyes Of The Dead Tease New Tunes

Through The Eyes Of The Dead

On June 19, Through the Eyes of the Dead were the subject of a “Just Release Something Already” post here at Gunshy Assassin. Two days later, the band hits Instagram and posts long-awaited teases of some new material. Coincidence? Hells no. If you think it is, you can go get fucked. Good and hard, too. […]

Avenged Sevenfold Preview Video Game Tunes

Avenged Sevenfold

I’ve never been a fan of Avenged Sevenfold. It has nothing to do with being jealous. I just don’t like their songs. I’d rather listen to man rape. But maybe you are a fan of the band, in which case you might want to check out the following video preview. It provides a sneak peek […]

Video: W.A.S.P. Frontman Ignores Fans In Russia


So the following video was advertised by its owners, some site called C-Lebrity, as showing W.A.S.P. frontman Blackie Lawless walking through a train station in Moscow, ignoring fans’ requests for autographs. I watched it, and it doesn’t seem to show that. One fan kind of yells something at Blackie, but I don’t see that as […]
