Lineup For Mayhem Fest Leaked A Second Time


If there was any doubt before that this year’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival was going to blow horse dick, let’s just clear that shit up right now. This year’s Mayhem fest is not worth attending. Plain and simple. The bands on this year’s lineup were once again leaked last night, this time on the […]

Mayhem Lineup Leaks; Cannibal Corpse, Trivium On Bill

Cannibal Corpse

I didn’t attend the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival last year, and it looks like I’ll be avoiding the 2014 installment just the same. The lineup for the tour has leaked, and aside from Cannibal Corpse, there’s really no fucking reason to go. Members of Korn, Avenged Sevenfold and Body Count have all previously stated […]

Sevendust Drop Off Asking Alexandria Tour


They claim there’s a personal family matter forcing them to drop off. I suspect they’re just fucking tired of being part of this shitfest. I mean, I don’t consider Sevendust a “good” band or what we would call “talents.” I liked that first record, and Lajon’s work on that Snot album. But that’s where I […]

Soundwave Tour Gets Even Better With Mastodon, Glassjaw


You Australians! Damn, am I envious of you. That accent, those beaches, them hotties! Australia’s got it all, and we’ve got our own bit of Australia on the site in the form of Xander Harrison, who won the 2013 GSA Writer’s Contest. Crikey! But when you folks get festivals, fuck do you do it up […]

Shovelhead And Spirit Animal Crust Up The Place

Spirit Animal

Discovering new bands is one of the most exciting phenomena that is always undergoing a generational evolution. It is read in ancient tomes that in the ’70s, one had to actually go outside to a record store to order the new Iron Maiden or go to a heavy metal bar to see a live performance. […]

Asking Alexandria, All That Remains Tour Dates Announced

All That Remains

You couldn’t get me to go to this if you told me they were giving out free pocket pussies at the gate. No, seriously. Even if they were molds of Kate Upton’s fotch. I got a notice today from Google, saying they won’t run ads on my site anymore because I wrote a story about […]

Korn, Hollywood Undead Playing Family Values Fest

Asking Alexandria

Well then that settles it. I wasn’t planning on attending the resurrected Family Values, but now know I won’t be going for sure. Korn have officially announced the details for their return of The Family Values Festival. The event will be hosted at the 1st Bank Center in Denver, Colorado, on October 5. Korn, of […]

Lone Star Metal Festival’s Lineup Weak Sauce

In This Moment's Maria Brink

Dude. The first annual Lone Star Metal Festival is set for this fall, and the lineup is nothing if not poo-poo. Going down October 27 at Backstage Live in San Antonio, the bill boasts Asking Alexandria, In This Moment, and All That Remains. Tickets are priced at $39.50 (or $45 at the door), and doors […]

Testament, Clutch, Down Playing Soundwave Festival

The Black Dahlia Murder are also playing

Good morning to you, our Aussie readers. Here’s the good news of the day: The lineup for the Soundwave Festival has been announced, mostly. So, who’s playing, you ask? I’m excited for you because Testament is playing, as are Clutch and fucking Down, dude. Rob Zombie’s playing, along with Megadeth, Korn, Alice in Chains, and […]
