Slipknot Release Another New Album Teaser


There’s a new Slipknot album recorded, and coming soon. In case you’ve missed that all-important news. The band’s been releasing a bunch of video teasers to promote the forthcoming offering, and I’ve basically been ignoring them since Slipknot isn’t a band I’ve ever been able to get into. Sorry. What follows is the most recent […]

Killswitch Engage Deliver Hardcore Set In Philly

Killswitch Engage

One of my favorite Killswitch Engage tracks is “Soilborn.” It’s such a brutal cut, with razor-slicing guitarsand Jesse growls like a fucking monster on it. The band performed a special “hardcore” set in Philadelphia last night, and ripped through “Soilborn” early…the second track in. Well-played, fellas. Appropriately, the hardcore set happened during the “This Is […]

Video: Phil Anselmo Covers The Smiths

Phil Anselmo

Not only does he cover The Smiths, he covers the one song chicks really dig by The Smiths. Disclaimer: I fucking love The Smiths. I have most of their albums, and have turned numerous friends on to them over the years. They’re the epitome of depressing music, because their lead singer is asexual. I could […]

Video: Killswitch Engage Frontman Joins Code Orange On Stage

Jesse, doing his thing

The following video is cool shit. Not only does it feature Jesse Leach of Killswitch Engage (who wrote a new column this week you should read) but it also boasts Code Orange (the band formerly known as Code Orange Kids). Jesse joined the band on stage last night for something I like to call show […]

Converge Rejoined By Cave In Frontman During Live Set


Converge were rejoined by their former bassist Stephen Brodsky last night when the band performed the Deathwish Fest in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I know a couple of people who were fucking there, and now I am wishing I had been. Brodsky, of course, left the band in the late 1990s, and went on to form Cave […]

Avenged Sevenfold Help Dude Propose Marriage

Avenged Sevenfold

Do I like Avenged Sevenfold’s music? Not at all. Do I understand their popularity? Only a little bit; I mean, they pander to the lowest common denominator of rock fan, so, of course they’re going to be biggish. Do I think what they did for Beau Barkley, a worker on the Mayhem Festival, the other […]

Former Testament Bassist Launches Meshiaak

Meshiaak, of course

Head to the end of this post if you wanna see what Greg Christian’s been up to as of late. Turns out it’s a band called Meshiaak. The new band further features ex-4Arm frontman Danny Tomb and Teramaze guitarist Dean Wells. The following song is expected to appear on Meshiaak’s debut album, tentatively due out […]

Machine Head Fan Proposes To Girlfriend During Show

Machine Head

Some dude named Tony — described as a huge Machine Head fan from North Dakota — proposed to his girlfriend Ashley on stage during the band’s sold-out concert Monday night in Monot, North Dakota. You can see video of that incident below; the girl’s kinda cute, I think. I’d be her friend. Machine Head’s Robb […]
