Megadeth Leader Comments On Chris Adler’s Addition

Chris Adler

We told you yesterday that Chris Adler was definitely Megadeth’s drummer. In fact, we’ve been saying it’s Chris since that first 15-second video was posted online. Because Adler has his own style, man. And I know it well. Now, Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine has commented on the Lamb of God drummer’s appearance on the band’s upcoming […]

40 Below Summer Launch Crowdfunding Campaign

40 Below Summer

Four years ago, New Jersey-based hardcore metal outfit 40 Below Summer reunited to work on a record that was eventually released in 2013. For some, the band’s return was warmly welcomed.

It's Adler

From all appearances, and based on Chris Adler’s drumming style in the video, I’d say that’s Lamb of God’s kitman for […]

Is Behemoth’s Nergal Teasing His Solo Material?


Behemoth frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski has posted two videos, and I am pretty fucking sure they were shot while he was in the studio working on his solo project. You know, the one that’ll sound nothing like Behemoth but instead be “very stripped down and simple. The most primitive, acoustic-based stuff. That’s what I’m really […]

Into Another Releasing New EP

Into Another

Man, back in the day, I used to love me some Into Another. For me, discovering them on my own is something I like to gloat about. They were — and presumably, still are — fucking awesome, but they’re not metal, as it were. They’re appreciated by metalheads because they push the bounds of experimental […]
