Twisted Sister To Detail Future Plans Next Week

Twisted Sister

It’s been two weeks since A.J. Pero’s death, and this week, the surviving members of Twisted Sister met to discuss the future. The passing of their drummer has left a lot of questions unanswered.

Dark Sermon’s Van Stolen

Dark Sermon

This morning, when I woke up, I looked out my fourth-floor window, and gazed upon my shitty neighborhood below. Down the street, I noticed a man’s legs dangling from a car window. I was half-asleep, so it took a few seconds for it to register: If that was his car, why would he be going […]

Is Behemoth’s Nergal Teasing His Solo Material?


Behemoth frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski has posted two videos, and I am pretty fucking sure they were shot while he was in the studio working on his solo project. You know, the one that’ll sound nothing like Behemoth but instead be “very stripped down and simple. The most primitive, acoustic-based stuff. That’s what I’m really […]

Into Another Releasing New EP

Into Another

Man, back in the day, I used to love me some Into Another. For me, discovering them on my own is something I like to gloat about. They were — and presumably, still are — fucking awesome, but they’re not metal, as it were. They’re appreciated by metalheads because they push the bounds of experimental […]

Aborted To Tour With Fit For An Autopsy


To me, that makes no sense. I, for one, don’t dig on Fit For An Autopsy. I get that they can play, I just don’t like their output. It doesn’t resonate with me. Why they’d be touring with Aborted is beyond me. Maybe I’m nuts. Maybe I’m wrong for not getting why Fit For An […]

Araya Offers Update On Next Slayer LP


Tom Araya, the dude from Slayer, has spoken to that rag Revolver about his band’s upcoming new album — Slayer’s first in eons not to feature Dave Lombardo or the late Jeff Hanneman. One of Hanneman’s old riffs will appear in one of the album’s songs, Araya said. “Ever since his passing, it’s been like […]

Guest Column: Three Movies You Need To See By Lancer’s Isak Stenvall


After Dustin Boltjes of Skeletonwitch contributed a column on must-see horror flicks, we decided to open the topic up to the members of other bands. Why? Well, in addition to loving music and literature, we’re huge movie buffs and feel maybe your life could similarly benefit from a big screen broadening. So here for you […]

Nine Inch Nails’ Reznor Critical To Apple Music App’s Relaunch

Trent Reznor

Reports are claiming Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor is playing a considerable role in the redesign of Apple’s digital music app, which will soon include a new streaming service. Reznor is already raking it in as the chief creative officer at Beats Music, the streaming service Apple acquired for $3 billion last year. Reports […]

Unlocking The Truth Discuss Major Label Disaster

Unlocking The Truth

By now, you’ve no doubt heard of the teenage metal band Unlocking The Truth. They’re from Brooklyn and signed a deal with Sony, accepting a life of indentured servitude, essentially. That deal hasn’t been dissolved but the band is trying, and discussing the whole debacle with The Daily Beast. “It was pretty difficult at times […]
