Alice Cooper Performs With New Guitarist

Nita Strauss

At the end of this post, you will find video showing Alice Cooper performing for the first time with his new guitarist, a hot-ass broad named Nita Strauss. The video was shot during the kick off of Cooper’s summer tour with Mötley Crüe. Strauss was recently announced as the replacement for Orianthi, some other hot […]

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 […]
