Slipknot Frontman Once Approached For “Rock Of Love”

Elton John called. He wants his suit back.

I never actually gave it any thought, but dude…before he got married in 2009, Corey Taylor was likely quite the cocksman. Think about it. He was single…the lead singer of one of the world’s most notorious metal bands, playing shows all over the planet. I bet he landed so much fotch while on tour, he […]

Motörhead’s Lemmy Is Not Well Again

lemmy

Everybody’s favorite male slut, Lemmy Kilmister, has taken ill. The Motörhead frontman hasn’t been feeling like himself in some time. Today, Motörhead had to cancel its set at the Monsters Of Rock festival in Brazil. Seems Lemmy had some “gastric distress” and was suffering from dehydration. The rest of the band did end up playing […]

This New Deftones Shirt Design Is Pretty Dope

I need this on my chest

What’s up, kids? It’s Saturday night (Sunday morning), and I’ve had a few beers after a long day of family-related events. But let’s get one thing straight, butt darts — I don’t need to be slightly inebriated to know I want this fucking Deftones shirt. The design that appears on the raglan tee is the […]

Slayer’s Kerry King: New LP Bostaph’s Reign

Slayer

When God Hates Us All was released, an album I’d considered pretty execrable, Kerry King called the Slayer record Paul Bostaph’s Reign In Blood. Forget that, though. He’s changed his mind. Now Kerry, who has been doing a great deal of press lately for this forthcoming Slayer LP, is claiming in a chat with Loudwire […]

Planes Mistaken For Stars

Post-hardcore heroes Planes Mistaken For Stars are back together, some two-and-a-half year after their last show. We’ve heard little if anything from Planes Mistaken For Stars ever since, but their silence was broken today. A press release claims the band “have been quietly and persistently working on new music, due to surface on Deathwish sometime […]

Thy Art Is Murder Reveal Scrapped Album Cover

The album's original cover

I’m kind of glad they changed it, because really, the only thing that pops into my head when I see the image affixed to this blog post is “What the fuck?” As in, what the fuck were you idiots fucking thinking, trying to glorify suicide vests like that? I’m guessing no thinking went into it […]

Agnostic Front Documentary Announced

I'm down to see this

This is something I’d be curious to watch. Film maker and music video director Ian McFarland is working on a documentary about Roger Miret and Vinnie Stigma, “the lynchpins behind New York Hardcore and their band Agnostic Front,” says a press release. The film will be “an intimate portrait of these two men — two […]

Revocation Touring With Oceano, Veil Of Maya

Revocation

Hmm. I will not analyze Revocation’s decision to join this tour. I will not question it. Obviously, Dave Davidson — a columnist for this site — and the rest of Revocation must have their reasons for signing on for “The Matriarch Tour.” I mean, I will probably be missing this trek, even though I think […]

Lamb Of God Tease New Music

Lamb of God

Say what?!? Yup. Lamb of God have expanding their social media horizons, launching an official Instagram account. The band’s first post follows at the end of this post, and seems to indicate new music is definitely in the works. Randy Blythe, Lamb of God’s frontman, posted a message on Instagram promoting his “day job,” which […]

Sepultura Releasing EP As Tribute To Fans

People have Sepulture tattoos? Weird.

Brazilian and American metal legends Sepultura — or what’s passing for the band these days — are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year, and today announced they will be releasing a special tribute to their fans. The band had asked fans to contribute to the artwork for a new track, and the result is Sepultura […]
