Korpiklaani Releasing New Album In May

korpiklaanibandpromo2015_638

I’m starting to feel like Nuclear Blast’s unstated mission is to somehow sign every metal band on the planet by a certain year. 2019, let’s say. Because the label announces another signing almost every other week. The latest signing keeps a band on the label’s roster: Korpiklaani, which is difficult to spell but hella fun […]

The Faceless Almost Finished With New Album

Michael Keene

We may not know yet who their new members are, but The Faceless seemingly has new recruits, considering they’re nearly finished recording a new LP. Michael Keene, The Faceless’ main songwriter, offered a brief update to fans online. He still hasn’t revealed who the band’s latest members are. An exodus of dudes recently prompted questions […]

Ah, NAMM. I’ve never been able to attend you (or half the other fucking events I’d love to cover for that matter), but you always end up producing news. Today’s one of those days where nothing is happening, so let’s thank the folks at ddrum for this tidbit. Morbid Angel drummer Tim Yeung made the […]

Faith No More Finish Tracking Comeback Album

Faith No More

Billy Gould claims recording sessions for the new Faith No More album have been completed. He took to Twitter yesterday to make it known.

Amon Amarth Working On Next Record

Amon Amarth

So, the blizzard that was supposed to bury my ‘hood under three feet of snow only hit my area with less than two feet of the white shit. I’ve spent much of the morning digging out my car and clearing the sidewalk around the building I live in; I’m the only one who lives here […]

Vision Of Disorder Start Pre-Production On New Album

Vision of Disorder

The blizzard making its way to my neck of the woods will likely make Tuesday pretty fucking miserable. Travel will be impossible, and I’ll be digging out my car and my walkway because I don’t like paying others to do work I can easily perform. While the snow batters the New York area, our friends […]

Paradise Lost Name New Album

Par

The title for the forthcoming Paradise Lost record has been officially unveiled. A press release went out this morning while I was at work. Sorry I’m only just getting to it now. But I didn’t think it was so earth-shattering that I needed to take a minute to post about it. Besides, we brought you […]

Deftones To Start Recording New LP Soon

Deftones

This year, I feel like a lot of blah news came out of NAMM. The national convention usually yields news of lots of new records and other interesting tidbits. This year, though, we learned very little if anything worth mentioning. The folks at MusicStoreLive.com did, however, pique my interest with an interview they did during […]

Rob Zombie’s New Album Is Finished

Rob Zombie

Another pile of putrid horseshit from the ever-redundant likes of Rob Zombie is in the fucking bag, people. Get your filthy fucking dollars together, kids — it’s time to throw them at Rob! According to a statement from Zombie, the album is his favorite. That’s cool. He doesn’t have to buy it, though. And let’s […]
