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. So why should we believe Ozzy Osbourne now when he says next year’s Black Sabbath disc will be the band’s last. And that it’s subsequent tour will mark the group’s final shows together. Why? We shouldn’t believe […]

The new Arch Enemy

I wish it were a cover of “Hell Bent For Leather,” but alas, it’s for “Breaking The Law” — the one Judas Priest song most bands massacre. Arch Enemy’s version of “Breaking the Law” follows.

What’s that? You forgot about that band Family?

Vice Slam Traitors For Bailing On Tour

Vice

This is just kind of funny to me, only because I can’t imagine a better life than living on the road, going from city to city, playing music for people who love what I do. Then again, I have never toured. So maybe I shouldn’t be so hard on Traitors, who apparently bolted from their […]

Skindred Signs With Napalm

Skindred

OK. This is interesting news, insomuch as I have no idea who’s going to actually care. But, Skindred have signed a worldwide deal with Napalm Records. The band has been working on a new album for the label. Skindred will be on tour with Steel Panther in the U.K. next year. The dates for that […]
