Faith No More Book U.K. Summer Appearance

Faith No More

Hey kids out there in TV land. Did you miss me today? I sure didn’t miss writing posts. I was busy being a lazy bum, and did some minor household repair work that didn’t come out the way I wanted. Oh well. Did you hear? Faith No More will be back on stage this July, […]

Gunshy Assassin Presents: The Disastercast With The Oath’s Johanna Sadonis

disastercast

In this post, which went live a few weeks ago, I — in my usual tongue-in-cheek-yet-still-honest style — expressed my pure, wanton desire for the ladies of The Oath, especially after seeing their skintastic press photos. At that point, I hadn’t heard a single note of their self-titled debut, so I instead praised the ladies […]

Musings From A Curmudgeon: Killer Be Killed Will Be A Massive Letdown

Killer Be Killed

There has been substantial coverage about this band here on GSA. I, for one, have been extremely excited about this project. I mean, Max Cavalera is in it. He’s the dude who’s responsible for the records Arise and Beneath the Remains. Those two albums barely contain a typhoon of whipping riffage and unbridled passion. Cavalera […]

Readers’ Bands: Now Let’s Check Out Sun Voyager

Sun Voyager

If you’re into doom-laden psychedelia inspired by the likes of Black Sabbath, Sleep, Fu Manchu, and Electric Wizard, well then you may just dig on Orange County, New York-band Sun Voyager’s sound. The four-piece have released two demos, called Cosmic Tides and Mecca. Bassist Stefan Mersch contacted us some time ago, asking for some coverage […]

Black Sabbath Albums Being Sold As Box Set

Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

Back in the day, Rhino Records used to sell bullshit. Old-ass music no one cared about anymore and TV theme compilations were what they would release, along with corny comedy albums. Nowadays, the label’s the home of old-ass music people still care about. They were behind the Pantera reissues, and now, have packaged together Black […]

Listen To A New Song From The Oath — Right Now!

The Oath

A lot of you folks gave me shit the other day for saying I’d fornicate with the ladies of The Oath, calling my post on the band a sexist commentary written by a feeble man. Guilty as charged! Do I think the ladies of The Oath are comely? You bet your ass I do, and […]

Demon Hunter

In our undying efforts to bring you engaging columns you won’t find anywhere else, we’ve reached out to the metal world seeking submissions for a new subject: Three amazing books you have to pick up and devour. Seeing as you read this blog everyday, we went out on a limb and assumed you’d maybe want […]

Suddenly, I’m Intrigued By A Band Called The Oath

The Oath

I wonder why I’d be so interested in them. I mean, the name The Oath isn’t all that great, and the fact that they couldn’t even come up with a name for their debut self-titled album for Rise Above Records strikes me as lazy. Think it could have something to do with the band’s members, […]

Lineup, Nominees Out For Revolver Golden Gods Awards

Carcass

It’s that time of year again…time to get disappointed! The brown-nose fest that is Revolver Golden Gods Awards — not to be confused with Metal Hammer’s Golden Gods Awards — is set. The awards will be handed out April 23, and feature on-stage performances by Guns N’ Roses, Korn, Zakk Wylde, Joan Jett and the […]

Sean Harris Selects His All-Timers

dimebag1

Many times I have been around a bunch of my metal head buddies and many times the question comes up. “Who’s in your all-time metal supergroup?” Now it’s pretty hard to pick a select few musicians out there to be in one. You have to think about genre, songwriting and how well the band could […]
