Faith No More, Slipknot Sign On For Hellfest

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, […]

Funerals Exclusive Song Stream: “Human Ruin”

Human Ruin

Wanna hear something perfectly nasty this fine Friday? Then quickly head on down to the end of this post and start streaming “Human Ruin,” one of the three songs appearing on Funerals’ debut offering. The album’s title track is killer, and should speak to something primal inside you, as it did for me. The Portland, […]

Twitching Tongues Announce Tour

Twitching Tongues

I haven’t listened to Twitching Tongues enough (if at all) to formulate an actual opinion. I honestly can’t remember ever listening to them. But I know a handful of people who claim they’re decent. I can’t vouch for their taste. They look like I’d hate them, but I’m not really interested in finding out whether […]

Terror, Goatwhore Added To New England Metal & Hardcore Festival

"Hey cookie, I dropped my pencil"

They might as well just release the entire lineup already. It’s not like the bill doesn’t already fucking rule. You think adding Terror’s going to get some kid to go, “Wait one hot fucking second! I wasn’t sold until this Terror announcement. Fuck it, I’ll go.” At this point, people are either going or not […]

How about Allegaeon, Alpha & Omega, Born Low, MurderDeathKill […]
