Posted by on March 28, 2014

Dave Mustaine is becoming refined in his old age. While he had made coffee in the past, it now looks like he’s branching out into alcoholic beverages. The Megadeth frontman will be playing a sold-out show with the San Diego Symphony next month, and to commemorate the show, he’s now making wine. Mustaine Vineyards’ “Symphony […]

RPWL’s Yogi Lang discusses the creation of ‘Wanted’

Posted by on March 28, 2014

RPWL is not your typical art rock band. Not only has this German group been creating progressive music since 1997, but also theatrical and thought-provoking conceptual themes to go along with it. And that’s on full display with their ninth album, Wanted, out in the U.S. on April 1. Vocalist/keyboardist Yogi Lang took the time […]

The latest Mushroomhead press shot reminds us of something…

Posted by on March 28, 2014

It’s been four years since Mushroomhead released an album, 2010’s Beuatiful Stories for Ugly Children. And with the Valentine’s Day announcement that their eighth album, The Righteous & the Butterfly, is coming out in May and their still-unconfirmed stint on this summer’s Mayhem Fest, they had good reason to get some press pics shot. And while their […]

As I Lay Dying guitarist says update on the band is coming “very soon”, seeks crowdfunding for his brother’s cancer

Posted by on March 27, 2014

While Tim Lambesis’ trial escalated for the better part of the past year (leading to the singer’s guilty plea), the rest of As I Lay Dying has stayed relatively quiet since his arrest. That’s completely understandable given how the recent events have left the band’s fate completely in limbo. Yet it looks as though we […]

You’ll eat up the new Steel Panther album

Posted by on March 27, 2014

When it was announced that Steel Panther was releasing their third album, All You Can Eat, on April 1st, it seemed appropriate. The band’s ridiculous over the top brand of ’80s metal is a joke, at least kind of. However, the Los Angeles quartet are dead serious when it comes to musicianship, so the chops and […]

America’s derpiest rock band writes Sarah Palin TV theme song

Posted by on March 27, 2014

Remember Madison Rising? The self-proclaimed “America’s Most Patriotic Rock Band” first made waves last month at a NASCAR event where they shit all over the National Anthem. It turns out that they weren’t done being patriotic. In fact, they’ve gone ahead and made the theme song for Sarah Palin’s new show Amazing America. The show, premiering […]

In Defense Of Their Good Name: DragonForce

Posted by on March 27, 2014

I thought it might be fun to take a stab at defending a band that was launched into popularity with lightning fast guitar virtuosity, video game inspired sounds, and the most arguably ridiculous power metal lyrics ever. I, of course, speak of none other than DragonForce. Bet you haven’t heard that name in a while, […]

Andrew W.K. pays tribute to Dave Brockie

Posted by on March 27, 2014

The tributes continue to pour in for GWAR frontman Dave Brockie. And while much of the metal and hard rock community are talking about what GWAR and Brockie meant to them, not many  of them actually got to perform with the band. Andrew W.K. is one of them. The consummate partier, Mr. WK used his […]
