Curse You Dave Grohl!


Tacky Christmas sweaters are a smash these days and rightfully so. Let’s enjoy a reason to hang out with all of our friends freezing in a garage getting hammered dressed in grandma holiday sweaters. Sounds good. The whole thing always seemed like an unspoken tribute to Bill Cosby’s taste above the waist. Now that his […]

System Of A Down’s Drummer Is Fucking Annoying

John Dolmayan

What the fuck is up with you, John Dolmayan? Lately, your texts make about as much sense as System of a Down’s hiatus. I mean, why the fuck would a band that big, with that many fans, just stop making music? It doesn’t add up. Anyways, I think Dolmayan’s either purposefully fucking with all of […]

The Deftones Still Writing New Material

The fact that the band’s in the studio, writing material for their next disc, makes me happier than a […]

Death To All Rips Vancouver To Pieces


Earlier in the week I was preparing myself for a couple of tremendous metal nights in Vancouver. I was geared up to check out Devin Townsend with Animals As Leaders and the very next night, Death DTA. When I woke up in the morning a day before that run of shows, I was surprised to […]

Slipknot’s Root Calls Stone Sour “Sinking Ship”

Jim Root

You may or may not recall, but Slipknot guitarist Jim Root was fired not that long ago from Stone Sour. Ever since, he’s been taking time out to bash the group, and guitarist Josh Rand in particular. He just told these guys that he thinks the band is going down. And not like your mom […]

Cattle Decapitation Still Writing Next Album

Cattle Decapitation

Hey folks. Today’s been a very strange day for me. Hence, the lack of posts on the site. But all will be OK, I hope. Things could be changing, though. But more on that later. Right now, let’s learn about Cattle Decapitation, who’ve been writing material as of late for their next LP. The band, […]
