Carcass have released a lyric video for a new track you’ve never heard before. The video for “Livestock Marketplace” follows at the end of this post.

Family Book Tour Dates

Go

What’s that? You forgot about that band Family?

Attila Guitarist Quits

Attila

Sure, that band Attila is unlistenable tripe. But whenever someone makes a move to better themselves, I like to highlight that. Attila guitarist Nate Salameh has left the band, because he’s trying to dry up. He writes online: “It was apparent to the people who are close to me (including the guys in the band) […]

Slayer’s King Hypes Next LP

Kerry King

He could tell me the album is the greatest thing to happen since Kate Upton’s massive rack, and I still wouldn’t sit down with the impending Slayer record for a listen. Slayer’s last few albums have been identical — they’ve all sucked. So don’t think it strange I’m not buying into Slayer guitarist Kerry King’s […]
