Faith No More

Some of the bands booked for next year’s Hellfest have been confirmed. Basically, everyone is playing. But I am most interested in Faith No More’s playing the festival, which goes down in Clisson, France, and will happen between June 19 and June 21. Slipknot and Judas Priest are also playing, as are Lamb of God, […]

Trap Them Album Due In June

Trap Them

I love the name of the new Trap Them record. It’s called Blissfucker, something I feel I am, and is due in stores this June. Well, June 10 to be exact. Kurt Ballou (Converge, Skeletonwitch) produced the album sessions last year. The disc was mastered by Jack Control (Darkthrone, Mammoth Grinder).
 For now, that’s all […]

The Disastercast

It’s time again, people. Time again for yet another Disastercast — the companion podcast to this little Web site you know and love, GunshyAssassin. Today’s episode — the 13th — is a doozy. In addition to going over all the week’s big news stories and complaining about publicists and their horseshit, we sit down for […]

Trap Them Done Recording New One

A shot from the pithy studio sessions

And just like that, it was finished. Trap Them literally just hit the studio to start work on their new album, and already, that shit is tracked, mixed, and ready to fucking go.

Listen To A New Skeletonwitch Song — NOW!


The other day, the new Skeletonwitch album arrived in my inbox, and as I told our Facebook followers, the album is disgustingly awesome.

Serpents Unleashed was recorded earlier this year at GodCity Studio […]

Trap Them Recording New LP This Fall

Trap Them

Unfortunately, Trap Them are not in a studio right this second, bringing bad-ass compositions to ear-tingling life. Oh no. They won’t be hitting God City Studios until this fall, fucko. The band also announced today that it has canceled all of its Midwest gigs for this weekend. Why? Because they don’t fucking feel like playing […]
