Michael Keene Comments On Future Of Fractured Faceless

Michael Keene

The Faceless’ flame-locked leader Michael Keene has broken his silence on the band’s recent departures, and is talking about the future. Bassist Evan Brewer and drummer Alex Rudinger bolted from the band last week, leading some to suspect Michael’s a douche to have to deal with. “To put any rumors to rest, The Faceless fully […]

Anthrax, Volbeat To Tour


I guess there’s no hard feelings between Anthrax and ex member Rob Caggiano. Anthrax and Volbeat will be touring this spring in the states and Canada. Crobot will also be playing.

Snot Enlist Vitiate Singer For Upcoming Shows

Carl Bensley

Tommy Vext left the Snot dudes high and dry just weeks ago, announcing he’s in some other unlistenable band you’ll never give one fuck about, let alone two fucks. So, the reunited Santa Barbara metal/skate punk act has been forced to find another singer. That dude will be Carl Bensley, known (by someone?) for his […]

The Ocean Go To India; It Doesn’t Go Well

The Ocean

Ah, India. I have been there, people. I actually loved my time there. It was like New York City, a little bit, only with extreme poverty, no traffic signals at all, and lots and lots of garbage lining the streets. It was like no other place I have ever been, and I’d return in a […]

Ozzy: Sabbath To Disband After Next Record, Tour

Black Sabbath

They said they were going to disband after their last album and tour, but are somehow still active.

The song appears on the group’s tour-only split with Kreator, which is limited to just 1,000 copies worldwide. You can […]

Machine Head

Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn’s latest online journal basically attacks “shit-talking” Children of Bodom fans over their reaction to the cancelation of the two bands’ joint North American tour. He further calls out Bodom’s frontman Alexi Laiho for issuing a “little bitch-ass response” after the tour was called off. Machine Head nixed the tour to […]

Family Book Tour Dates


What’s that? You forgot about that band Family? To be honest, so did I with all the new releases that have been hitting recently, and because, well, the Brooklyn band has not been up to too much lately. But that’s about to change. Family — who have undergone some lineup changes they’ve yet to disclose […]
