Phil Anselmo, Ben Weinman Rock Cat Pants

Metal's next trend?

Could cat pants be the next metal trend? I certainly hope not. Because that is not a fad I can get behind. Though, it is not as though I really fit the fucking metal bill anyways. After all, I lack ink and a vest with patches. I have no facial hair at the moment and […]

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 […]
