Faith No More

Some of the bands booked for next year’s Hellfest have been confirmed. Basically, everyone is playing.

Slipknot have announced they will be crossing the pond with their “Prepare For Hell” tour. Yup. That means Slipknot and possibly Korn (plus a band we do not acknowledge on this site any more) will be coming for you, Europe. We know Korn and that other band will be playing the U.K. dates — but […]

Korn

This is fucking weird. Just when you thought David Silveria actually gave no fucks about being in Korn anymore (something I nearly respected the dude for), he’s gone and apologized to fans for not being in the nu-metal act anymore. Silveria thanked the band’s fans on the 20th anniversary of the release of the group’s […]

It is set to kick off immediately following the band’s previously announced Knotfest in late […]

Five Finger Death Punch Dude Gets Face Tattoo

Driven to craft shitty rock

I feel like only rich rock stars and the criminally insane can pull of the face tattoo. Good thing Jason Hook of Five Finger Death Punch is one of those. Continuing a trend started by some of the Korn dudes, Hook has gotten some ink on his face. The word “Driven” now appears on his […]

Metal Dudes React To Robin Williams’ Suicide

Robin Williams

Yesterday morning, while we were all living, comedian and movie legend Robin Williams was busy dying. The dude suffered from serious depression and killed himself. Sad, for sure. But look, I suffer from serious depression, too. And am seriously broke. And I’m not hanging myself. So, to be honest, I can’t feel too, too bad […]

Emigrate

I’ve heard Emigrate’s music, and I think it’s Emiawful. But that’s OK. That doesn’t mean anything. You may like them, and that’s fine. We all can’t like the same shit, folks. In case you are a Rammstein fan, Emigrate features that band’s guitarist Richard Z. Kruspe. Emigrate’s sophomore album, Silent So Long, looks to be […]
