VIdeo: It’s Never Too Early To Cover Fear Factory’s “Recharger”

Posted by on May 31, 2012

Fear Factory’s latest album, The Industrialist, isn’t out until Tuesday (5), but that hasn’t stopped people from covering music from it already. Dead Talking Mind, a band from Lyon, France, have posted their take of the album’s first single, “Recharger,” on YouTube, and they don’t do a half bad job. For one, they don’t use […]

With Jerry Gaskill Recovered, Kings X To Tour Again

Posted by on May 31, 2012

The metal community was shocked and saddened in February when word came that Kings X drummer Jerry Gaskill had suffered a heart attack. A month later, he left the hospital, but while things sounded encouraging, there wasn’t any word on his condition – until now. The prog-leaning hard rock band will be touring this Fall […]

Win A Prize Pack From Back On Black Records!

Posted by on May 31, 2012

If you’re a true metal fan, you probably at least have some of your collection on vinyl. There’s nothing like experiencing the album as a ritual: putting it on a turntable, scrutinizing the artwork and liner notes, and knowing that when metal started as a genre, this was THE way to listen to it. Back on […]

Preparing For Cannibalism With Maynard James Keenan

Posted by on May 31, 2012

So in case you haven’t heard, the zombie apocalypse is upon us! In Miami this past weekend, police shot and killed a drugged up naked man in the process of eating some guy’s face (there’s pictures here, but they’re extremely NSFW and you can’t unsee them). Because the Miami New Times figured that they might […]

Lita Ford Talks ‘Living Like A Runaway,’ Her Hiatus, ’80s Resurgence

Posted by on May 31, 2012

Lita Ford has been through quite a bit in the last few years: a ‘comeback’ album that she was merely a participant in (2010′s poorly-received Wicked Wonderland), a painful separation from her husband and children, and almost getting hit by a train, then arrested for it (more on that below). However, things are turning around for […]

Listen To Full The Night Flight Orchestra Album!

Posted by on May 31, 2012

We’ve been plenty psyched about The Night Flight Orchestra, the classic rock-ish band that features Soilwork’s Bjorn “Speed” Strid and Arch Enemy bassist Sharlee D’Angelo. If Thin Lizzy, Deep Purple and the Scorpions had a baby with Dynasty-era KISS in the late ’70s, it would sound a bit like NFO. This definitely isn’t the heaviest […]

On August 21, The Darkness will release their third and first album since disbanding in 2006, Hot Cakes. And while we’ve previously heard the song called “Nothin’s Gonna Stop Us,” we now have another new song from the UK rock group. And while the lyric video for “Every Inch Of You” starts off with a model […]

Even Aaron Rodgers Doesn’t Like Nickelback, Creed, or Alter Bridge

Posted by on May 31, 2012

There’s nothing more American than football (well, American football anyway). And you’d think that its quarterbacks would enjoy some good old fashioned mass-appeal butt rock. Not so with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. This is a little old, but apparently, last month Rodgers and his fellow tight end Tom Crabtree were going back and […]

Video: Rwake Frontman Vomits Midway Through ‘Maryland Deathfest’ Set, Handles It Like A Champ

Posted by on May 31, 2012

As the saying goes, the show must goes on. And frontman C.T. proved that during Rwake’s set at the Maryland Deathfest in Baltimore, MD this past weekend. Halfway through the sludge metal band’s performance, C.T. suddenly vomited onstage. What’s more impressive, though, is that C.T. didn’t let the incident ruin the show, continuing on without […]
