The Contortionist Releasing New One In July

The Contortionist

That’s right, dudes. I never got the chance to bang a female contortionist. Something tells me it would be both weird and amazing. The positions she’d be able to curl into…but then, it’d throw me off to be banging a pretzel, you know what I mean? I digress. The Contortionist will be releasing a new […]

Trespass America Tour Was Work Of Zoltan

Zoltan Bathory

No, not the fortune-telling machine from “Big,” but the guitarist from Five Finger Donkey Punch. I mean Five Finger Death Punch, of course. Zoltan Bathory claims the idea for the Trespass America Festival — featuring his own band, Killswitch Engage, Trivium, and God Forbid — was all his. “We will carry the flag into mainstream […]

All of the bands have been tapped for the “Trespass America Festival,” which goes down this summer. “Trespass America” […]

Lamb Of God, DevilDriver Offshoot Gets Name, Free Songs Available

Dez did this

We have known for a few months now that Mark Morton of Lamb of God has been working with DevilDriver’s Dez Farfara. Now, we know that project’s name. Born of the Storm is the moniker, and fuck me with a Wii remote if I don’t love it. I think that’s an awesome name, and look […]

Trivium Bassist Defends Decision To Tour With Asking Alexandria


You know, this is hilarious. Hilarious. To me, touring with Asking Alexandria made perfect sense. Both bands are useless tripe, so I figured it was a match made in shitty heaven. During a recent interview with Metal Insider, Trivium bassist Paolo Gregoletto defended the band’s decision to tour with Asking Alexandria, I See Stars, and […]

God Forbid’s Doc Coyle Reacts To Djent Accusations

Doc Coyle

I was actually talking to Doc Coyle the other day, hours before God Forbid’s new song “Don’t Tell Me What To Dream.” So when the song went up, I was keeping tabs on his Facebook. Some buttdarts reacted to the new song, suggesting God Forbid has hopped on the djent bandwagon, which I just don’t […]
