If you were lucky enough to be at the Family Guy panel at this years San Diego Comic-Con, you got a very special treat as Seth MacFarlane previewed ten minutes from the final installment of the Family Guy Star Wars Trilogy based on Return of The Jedi titled It’s A Trap.

All 20 of the finalists for the No Label Needed Contest and Series were great bands, and while Iron Thrones ultimately triumphed, the runners-up aren’t sitting still. In fact, 2011 will bring new music from at least two of the bands in the contest.
San Francisco Bay Area quartet Scorched Earth Policy have released a sampler track of their forthcoming 2011 album. Their album will be mixed in January for a Spring 2011 release. On first listen, we want to hear more. It’s full of riffs and melodies that remind us of their Bay Area brothers Testament, with some Anthrax mixed in – basically, solid thrash that old school and new school metalheads should appreciate. The album sampler is also available for download at the band’s website.
Also, Phoenix band Hemoptysis have just finished recording their full length debut album as well. They recently got out of the studio with Grammy-winning producer Ryan Greene, who’s worked with Megadeth, NOFX and MXPX among others. They’re offering up a new song, “Misanthropic Slaughter,” on their MySpace page. The new song is heavier and thrashier than “Shadow of Death,” their submission for No Label Needed.
Either way, Metal Insider is psyched to have helped bring these bands to your attention, and now that they’ve got new music out, support them by listening!
Amon Amarth will release their new album Surtur Rising on March 29, 2011 via Metal Blade Records.
The Damned Things are streaming a new song called “Little Darling” exclusively at AbsolutePunk.net.
Sodom have parted ways with drummer Bobby Schottkowski. The band’s upcoming touring plans will no be affected and a replacement will be announced shortly.
Is this the future of selling music, or is this just a brilliant way to sell CDs to potheads in need of munchies? I’m going with the latter. MediaPost.com is reporting that Little Caesars Pizza is selling rap-rocker turned country bad boy Kid Rock’s new album Born Free for $10 in its restaurants nationwide. Stuart deGeus, the Detroit-based pizza chain’s vice president of marketing, had the following to say about the cross promotion:
“Pizza is a fun food and giving our diverse customers an opportunity to combine it with this new music release makes sense. Kid Rock’s albums are chart-toppers and this offering can help drive traffic to our stores.”
At first glance, this sounds like a truly silly idea…ok so maybe it is still remarkably ridiculous. But it’s pretty much the same thing as buying a CD from Starbucks or a food store, which people apparently do. So selling your album through a pizza chain isn’t the most honorable thing for an artist to do, but considering who makes up a majority of Kid Rock’s audience, it’s not an awful marketing plan that’ll surely help sell a few albums.
Going under the pseudonym Thomas Giles, Between The Buried And Me frontman Tommy Rogers will release his debut solo album Pulse on February 1, 2011 via Metal Blade Records. A new song from Roger’s new project, which he recorded and wrote all the music for, called “Sleep Shake” can be heard on his MySpace page.
