Lineup For Mayhem Fest Leaked A Second Time


If there was any doubt before that this year’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival was going to blow horse dick, let’s just clear that shit up right now. This year’s Mayhem fest is not worth attending. Plain and simple. The bands on this year’s lineup were once again leaked last night, this time on the […]

Mayhem Lineup Leaks; Cannibal Corpse, Trivium On Bill

Cannibal Corpse

I didn’t attend the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival last year, and it looks like I’ll be avoiding the 2014 installment just the same. The lineup for the tour has leaked, and aside from Cannibal Corpse, there’s really no fucking reason to go. Members of Korn, Avenged Sevenfold and Body Count have all previously stated […]

Escape The Fate Drop Off Five Finger Death Punch Trek

Escape The Fate

Escape The Fate, a band almost as shitty as Five Finger Douche Dunk, have pulled out of the “Wrong Side Of Heaven Tour”. That trek boasts the unlistenable likes of Miss May I, Gemini Syndrome and Fish Flustered Sperm Lunch. “Escape The Fate will be dropping off the Wrong Side of Heaven tour as of […]

Five Finger Death Punch Touring With Escape The Fate

Fine Fecal Bagel Brunch

That headline says it all, doesn’t it? Two of the shittiest bands people wrongly assume are metal will be touring together this fall. They’ll also be bringing along the bands Miss May I and Gemini Syndrome. I think I’d rather attend my own funeral. Actually, that would be awesome. You’d get to see who showed […]

Not My Last Serenade — An Interview With Killswitch Engage’s Joel Stroetzel And Jesse Leach

Joel, Sean, and Jesse

Mere days before June 27 of this year, I was informed that I would be, once again, blessed with the opportunity to interview more of my heroes. We here at GunShyAssassin are big boosters of Killswitch Engage and I was lucky enough to have meet them and conduct an interview.  Here’s the crazy part. I […]

Bullets Fired At Miss May I’s Bus

Hey man, nice shot

I’m no Miss May I fan but…there’s no reason for murder attempts here, folks. In fact, the fact that they’re on tour with Killswitch Engage gives them some measure of credibility in my book. Will I ever listen to their music? I’m dumb, not deaf. According to Miss May I frontman Levi Benton, someone shot […]

Killswitch Engage Debut In Top 10, Confirm Summer Tour

It's coming

Killswitch Engage Debut In Top 10, Confirm Summer Tour Dude. How awesome is it that Killswitch Engage’s new album Disarm The Descent opened at #7 on the Billboard Top 200 chart? I’d say plenty awesome. It also opened at #1 on both the Rock Albums Chart and the Hard Music Chart. To celebrate the big […]

Killswitch Engage Plotting Summer Tour?

Killswitch Engage

We can’t say for sure, but it seems Killswitch Engage will be doing some touring this summer. But with who, we aren’t quite sure. Really, at this point, it’s all speculative. But it does seem that Killswitch Engage — who have a new album in stores now — are reportedly planning a summer tour with […]

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! I wasn’t sold until this Terror announcement. Fuck it, I’ll go.” At this point, people are either going or not […]
