Dude, I have sliced a bunch of my fingers in a myriad of ways over the years. Some have been severe, and others, very minor. Scale The Summit guitarist Chris Letchford suffered a severe slice last night. He cut off part of his fingertip and had to go to the hospital to get stitches.

Terror, Goatwhore Added To New England Metal & Hardcore Festival

"Hey cookie, I dropped my pencil"

They might as well just release the entire lineup already. It’s not like the bill doesn’t already fucking rule. You think adding Terror’s going to get some kid to go, “Wait one hot fucking second!

Impending Doom Touring In July

Impending Doom

Who with? Funny you should ask. What — Impending Doom aren’t good enough for you? You need other bands to entice you to see them on tour? What’s wrong with you? How dare you? I won’t be going. But that’s because I will have something more important to do. Like blow. Plus, I don’t live […]
