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. […]

Devil You Know: Debut Album Being Mixed By Zeuss

Devil You Know

Stop the fucking presses, people. Devil You Know, that new featuring ex-Killswitch Engage frontman Howard Jones, have finished tracking their Nuclear Blast Entertainment debut. The band worked on the album with producer Logan Mader (Gojira, Five Finger Death Punch), while Zeuss (God Forbid, Hatebreed) will be handling the mixes. Look for the disc to be […]

Gunshy Assassin Presents The Worst Of 2013


Another site may have bitten the idea and rushed to get their list done before I could this year but, fuck it — this is something I’ve done every year since the site’s launch three years ago, and 2013 will be no different. What a year it was, right? The Lostprophets guy was busted for […]

Hellfest Adds Iron Maiden, Aerosmith

Iron Maiden

Hmm. I always thought of Hellfest as super extreme, you know? Like, the one festival that was tougher than all the rest. It used to be like that, anyways. Now, with the latest announcement of bands for 2014’s Hellfest, I’m starting to wonder if the bookers are thinking more about profits than prowess. While they’ve […]

Red Enemy Sign With Mediaskare

Red Enemy

Ireland’s Hatebreed, Red Enemy, have inked a deal with Mediaskare Records. At the moment, the band’s writing music for its new album; plan’s to record in the U.S. this February with producer Taylor Voeltz. In the meantime, check out the band’s video “Changing The End” at the end of this post. Watch it. All I […]
