Slipknot Announces Second Knotfest


The second Knotfest was announced over the weekend. Sorry I am just letting you all know now. I was at my parents’ place trying to fucking relax, and did not touch my laptop the entire time. Now, I’m home, burnt by the sun, and excited for those of you who live out in San Bernardino, […]

Jamey Jasta To Open For The Misfits

Jamey Jasta

Remember when Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed released a solo album? It was a few years back, if I recall correctly, and the reception was rather lukewarm to the music, if I’m not mistaken. Regardless, Jasta will be performing three sets of his Jasta music this October. The three shows see Jasta opening for The Misfits. […]

Gwar Preparing For Gwar-B-Q Set


A press release issued today makes it clear: Gwar did not die with Dave Brockie, and will in fact carry on as a band — at least with live performances, anyways. The presser says Gwar’s triumphant return to the stage as the headliner at this year’s Gwar B-Q is on, as planned. The fifth annual […]

Brockie To Receive Viking Funeral


If you plan on attending this year’s Gwar-B-Q, set for August 15 at the Hadad’s Lake In Richmond, Virginia, you’re in for something unique. “Fans, friends, family and bohabs will have the opportunity to pay their respects, as they drunkenly toast with a Gwar Beer in one hand, while wearing the commemorative Dave Brockie Fund […]

Metal Universe Reacts To Gwar Leader’s Death

Dave Brockie

Today’s just been one of those days. You wanna cry, because we lost someone special in Dave Brockie, a creative genius who endured quite a bit for his art. But at the same time, Dave wouldn’t want you to be sad. Either way, Facebook has been running wild with remembrances and memorials to the man […]

Black N’ Blue Bowl Announced; Hatebreed, Agnostic Front Performing


The lineup for this year’s Black N’ Blue Bowl has been announced. Set for The Well in Brooklyn, it will go down May 17 and May 18. Here’s the lineup for each day. It’s going to be a humdinger of a good time. I think I will definitely be attending this year. I’m sure Zeena […]

Readers’ Bands: No Salvation Are From Massachusetts

No Salvation

Like most bands from Massachusetts, No Salvation’s got it going on. And I don’t say that about many bands…the “got it going on” thing. But got it going on, they do. They’re fucking aggressive, are masters of their instruments, and had me wishing I were in a band recently, whilst I was listening to them. […]

Exploited Frontman Suffers Heart Attack

The Exploited

This is not cool. Not cool at all, man. This site, which is in Portuguese, claims The Exploited’s Wattie Buchan suffered a heart attack on stage during the band’s concert last night. The show went down in Lisbon, on a tour with Napalm Death and Hatebreed. In the following video, you will see the dude […]

Readers’ Bands: Nautilus Are Pretty Tough


So, this band, I’m sort of on the fence about. They’re Nautilus from Kingston, New York. They can obviously play, and remind me of Hatebreed at times, and Killswitch Engage at others. Yet, something’s preventing me from loving Nautilus. I can’t put my finger on it, but I can’t bring myself to totally dig it. […]
