Scale The Summit Guitarist Slices Finger

Chris Letchford

Dude, I have sliced a bunch of my fingers in a myriad of ways over the years. Some have been severe, and others, very minor. Scale The Summit guitarist Chris Letchford suffered a severe slice last night. He cut off part of his fingertip and had to go to the hospital to get stitches.

Reflections Get New Drummer

Her reflection's nice

His name is Nick. Nick Lona is his full name. He is the new drummer for Reflections, a band I know loads of people like but I’ve never actually heard. Says the band: “Everyone please welcome our new drummer Nick Lona to the family! We are extremely excited to officially have him with us. Some […]

Chimaira Debut New Video

Chimaira

See that shizzy at the end of this post. Yes, yes. Chimaira have a new video clip out for their track “Wrapped In Violence.” That song comes from the band’s newest album, which is in stores now.

Chimaira, Oceano Tour Announced

Chimaira

Oh man. I’m at least glad that Chimaira’s closing, but still…this bill’s fucking whack-ass shit, dudes. I mean, does the lead singer of Oceano have pictures of Mark Hunter naked in addition to one’s of himself and his small pecker? That’s the only reasonable explanation for how this tour came to be, as far as […]

Chimaira, Oceano Tour In The Works

Chimaira

Man. I love Chimaira. Love. I think the band’s got serious talent, before and after the lineup shifts, and I am not just saying that because their singer Mark Hunter writes a column for the site. But this rumor makes me ill. ThePRP claims Chimaira, Oceano, Fit For An Autopsy and Reflections will be touring […]

All Shall Perish, Oceano Tour Announced

All Shall Perish

Oh boy. Fucking hell. Here’s yet another tour I’ll have to make sure I miss. In fact, I can’t wait to not go. All Shall Perish are teaming up with Oceano, Within The Ruins, Obey The Brave, Reflections and Betrayal for a tour that was essentially built around their upcoming appearances at the Heavy MTL […]

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 […]

Two More Bands Added To New England Metal & Hardcore Fest

Job For A Cowboy

Oh yes, folks. The New England Metal and Hardcore Festival keeps growing. Like that thing in your shorts. Keep taking those vitamins, and it’ll be a full three inches…from the GROUND! Job For A Cowboy and D.R.I. were both added to this year’s Metalfest bill. Metalfest goes down at The Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts, on […]
