Killswitch Engage, God Forbid Booked For Trespass America

Killswitch Engage

This sounds like it could be a half-decent festival. There would be the decent half: Killswitch Engage, with God Forbid and Battlecross. Then, there’s the other half: Five Finger Death Punch, Trivium, Pop Evil, and Emmure. 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

Trivium

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 […]

Rocklahoma Lineup Announced; Hardly Rocks

Rob and his wife Sheri Moon

Yes, folks — it’s that time of year again. It’s time to find out how a bunch of lazy festival organizers have been wasting their time. The 2012 Rocklahoma lineup has been announced, and let me just say this: It’s awe-inspiringly bad. Sure, there’s the usual suspects, like Rob Zombie, Queensryche, Slash, and Megadeth. While […]

2012 Revolver Golden Gods Awards Announced

Kate will not be at the Golden Gods

These awards are fucking lame beyond belief. I can not believe this shit has actually been happening for four years now…that this awards show franchise has taken hold. Fucking thing sucks. The fourth annual Revolver Golden Gods award show is going down April 11 at Club Nokia in Downtown Los Angeles, and somehow involves XBox […]

God Forbid Unveil New Album Cover, Title

Equilibrium

That is correct, sir. New Brunswick, New Jersey’s own melodic thrash-metal sons God Forbid will release their new album, Equilibrium, on March 27 through Victory Records. The bulk of the CD was recorded by Mark Lewis (Trivium, The Black Dahlia Murder) with Jason Suecof (Chimaira, All That Remains) stepping in during the the vocal-tracking stage. […]

Dir En Grey Back Out Of The Still Reckless Tour

Dir En Grey

Oh well. Probably for the best. Under recommendation of Dir En Grey frontman Kyo’s physician after extensive examination of his vocal cords, the Japanese rockers have regretfully canceled their participation in “The Still Reckless Tour” and solo shows scheduled between March and April 2012. I feel bad for these guys. They are super nice dudes, […]
