Useless Bands Exchange Words Over Online Pedophilia Claims

Combichrist

Yes, I know these bands are far from actual metal, but I find it necessary to expose pedophilia claims whenever they arise. So this unlistenable band Combichrist apparently announced a second leg of their “We Love Tour” which was supposed to feature support from Blood On The Dance Floor, Davey Suicide and Darksiderz.

Gigan, Pyrrhon Announce Tour

Gigan

Now this is one, I’ll be ultra pissed if I miss. I usually forget bands are coming through town. Until, like, the day of the show, and very often, I’ve already got cemented plans or not enough cash to get there and back AND get a ticket. It’s fucking $30 in tolls if I drive, […]

King Diamond Bassist Fired

Hal talks to a babe

If you have kids, the following statement may make you a tad bit jealous: I slept until noon today.
