Former Megadeth Members Form Band With Ex-Scar The Martyr Singer


That’s right, folks. Former Scar the Martyr frontman Henry Derek Bonner has joined the still-unnamed new band that has been formed by ex-Megadeth members Chris Broderick and Shawn Drover. Blabbermouth is reporting the partnership. During an interview this week with SiriusXM’s Jose Mangin, Broderick said: “Through talking with Shawn Drover, we’ve talked about how we […]

Ghost Selling New Watch


They made dildos — why not a watch? Because really, you need to know what time it is when you’re fucking yourself. They’ve made just 150 of them (smart), meaning chances are you won’t fucking get one. Why make just 150 of something? I guess, maybe, they’ll make more if they all sell quickly, and […]

Carcass Leader Defends Babymetal


I know there are some other metal sites on the web that are high on the dog and pony show that is Babymetal, but I’ll never get behind the Japanese pop act. Supporting Babymetal would be like supporting the fucking Olsen Twins if they started a hair metal band at the height of that lame […]

Gunshy Assassin Presents: The Disastercast


It’s Saturday. We never post podcasts on Saturday. But this week was a little hectic for your old pal Chris, kids. In fact, sadly, today’s podcast doesn’t even have a musician interview; Jesse James Madre from Tiger Flowers was set to guest on the show, but car trouble prevented it. He will appear as a […]

Ghost Working On New Music


One of the Nameless Ghouls in Ghost tells Metal Hammer that new music from the band is in the works. A few heads I know will be psyched to receive such word. Says the moniker-free musician: “We have some track title figures out, and we know the album title too, as well as thematically where […]

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 […]
