Motionless in White are down with System; cover “Chop Suey”

Posted by on January 17, 2017

  Here’s a wake-up call for you: System of a Down are pretty much classic rock now. Their landmark 2001 album Toxicity is over 15 years old now. That means that when Motionless in White covered “Chop Suey” from that album this past Friday on the first date of their tour with Falling In Reverse, they […]

Posted by on January 6, 2017

While many are digesting 2016 tunes, it is time to move forward and see what is ahead for 2017. 2016 gave us several diversified lists proving it was a great year for music. Does 2017 have what it takes to top that? We’re already hearing about big releases like Mastodon, Suicide Silence, Overkill, Kreator and more, but […]

Psychostick take on the holidays, System of a Down with “N.O.E.L.”

Posted by on December 5, 2016

Sorry, Psychostick, but it’s going to be impossible for you to beat “Numbers,” your Drowning Pool parody with the chorus “I can only count to four.” But metal’s answer to “Weird” Al Yankovic have made a career out of not only humorously covering other peoples’ songs, but also doing their own. Last year, they did […]

Spoiler alert: old people don’t like System of a Down

Posted by on October 26, 2016

  It’s been over a decade since System of a Down have released an album, but if you’re an older person, you were only middle-aged when they released Hypnotize. That doesn’t mean that the fine people in the latest Fine Brothers Entertainment installment of “Elders React To…” series have heard of them. As frenetic as SOAD are, […]

System of a Down are touring next year

Posted by on October 10, 2016

Just last year, we made a top five list of bands that would probably never reunite. Since then, two of our five, Guns N’ Roses and Misfits (with Glenn Danzig) went and proved us wrong. Shows what we know, huh? We haven’t made a list of bands that are still playing out, but we’d like […]

System of a Down’s Serj Tankian provides update on band’s new album status

Posted by on May 6, 2016

Some of the running gags in rock and metal regarding long-awaited albums usually include bands like Tool or Necrophagist which haven’t released any new music in years, despite being active or at least officially not dead. But many forget that there’s another band that have already reached 11 years since they released a new album but are […]

‘Spin’ names their top 40 covers by nu-metal bands

Posted by on April 28, 2016

Back in the ’90s and early aughts, the nu-metal explosion found bands, some of which had no reasons being signed, thrust upon us in the wake of Korn, Deftones and Limp Bizkit’s success. Granted, some of those bands were great, and others not so much. What they all had in common was that one of […]

Rick Rubin talks about working with Slayer, Danzig, Kerry King’s dislike of Beastie Boys

Posted by on February 11, 2016

Given the body of work he’s amassed already, not to mention his long, flowing gray beard, it’s hard to imagine that Rick Rubin is only 52 years old. In his 32 years of producing, he cofounded Def Jam, then American Recordings and he produced everything from Slayer’s Reign in Blood to Adele and Johnny Cash. On the eve […]

Guns N’ Roses, System of a Down, Van Halen, Aerosmith make it to Super Bowl

Posted by on February 8, 2016

The Super Bowl (or the Big Game – we don’t want to get sued!) is easily the most-viewed sporting event in America, and many watch equally for the ads. At $5 million per 30 second ad, there’s a lot at stake for anyone ponying up, and of course every commercial is going to be scrutinized. And with […]
