Sepultura Tour Announced


Fuck me, man. Every time that my job calls me away for any indeterminate amount of time, shit goes down in the metal world. Without fail.

Septicflesh Announce North American Tour


Septicflesh are coming to North America. I wish they’d hire me to go to Greece to watch their homes while their on tour. I’d be an excellent housekeeper.

Flyleaf, The Agonist, Others Playing Revolver’s “Chicks” Tour

Fit For Rivals

Every year, I critique Revolver Magazine for its debasing feature on the “Hottest Chicks In Hard Rock” — which is now on stands, and will be followed by a similarly-named tour and the release of a calendar. Some people have pointed out that, at various times in the past, I have made different sexually-charged jokes […]
