As Blood Runs Black Get Jacked

As Blood Runs Black

Why does this always happen to bands in Oakland and Detroit? I feel like these two cities and their denizens are notorious for pilfering band shit. As Blood Runs Black had their car broken into in Oakland the other nights, outside of the Oakland Metro. Members of the band had been attending the “Mosh Lives […]

If you live in the Chicago area, stop what you are doing and fucking read the following, very important news. Zakk Wylde had his leather vest stolen. We must recover this item. That vest is the source of Zakk’s dudeliness, and without it, he’s a shell of his normal self. He also had a fucking […]

HIM’s Stuff Stolen In Australia

The culprit

Sure, I may think HIM’s music is the worst thing to happen to ears since wax, but that doesn’t mean I want crimes perpetrated against them. Such a thing just happened down in Australia last night. A guy who looks like he stepped out of that Bum Fights video made off with some shit they’ll […]

Chimaira’s Equipment Stolen In Mexico


Well, doesn’t this just suck a peanut-laden shit-covered cock. Some of Chimaira’s gear was stolen from a van in Guadalajara, Mexico. Of course it was. I mean, let’s be honest here, folks.

That should change something. “Getting better, looking healthy for the first time in months I feel, and I chopped that mop off my head (finally),” writes Judd online. “Tired of seeing the mug shot all over the place…hopefully these can replace that image in […]

White Wizzard Part With Label

White Wizzard

Mere days after firing their frontman, White Wizzard reports it has parted ways with Earache Records and will launch its own record label, White Wizzard Records. Good luck with that, fellas. The band claims the parting was mutual. I call bullshit. “Excited to announce that we will be going independent and we have mutually parted […]

White Wizzard Lose Frontman

White Wizzard

And maybe even some more members. White Wizzard — a totally useless band that emails me 100s of times a day — have a new singer after firing their frontman Joseph Michael. “White Wizzard want to release a brief statement on singer Joseph Michael. Last night in Cardiff, Wales, Joseph Michael left a crowd of […]
