Report: Bumblefoot out of Guns N’ Roses

Posted by on July 31, 2015

A few months back, we sat down with Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal to discuss what was he up to and got a scope of what was going on with his band Art of Anarchy and his solo career but there was hardly any mention about Guns N’ Roses, even though the band have been working on […]

What the hell is Anthrax’s Frank Bello hanging with Justin Bieber for? [Updated]

Posted by on July 31, 2015

We’re pretty sure that Justin Bieber couldn’t name an Anthrax song if his life depended on it, not even their cover of “Bring the Noize.” However, it’s been shown that he likes Metallica in the past. Looks like he’s branching out a little more into the Big Four. We have no idea why or how […]

Amplfied: Allusion are a bunch of degenerates

Posted by on July 31, 2015

Amplified is a weekly column focusing on new and emerging artists. Got a band that fits the bill? Email [email protected] It’s Friday, and all I want to do is listen to some hardcore. Oklahoma’s Allusion and their EP “Land of Sleep” are the cure to the Friday afternoon slump. Their sound is rooted in moshy […]

Posted by on July 31, 2015

As if drummer Ben Koller isn’t busy enough, what with playing with Converge, Mutoid Man, and All Pigs Must Die, he’s now officially a part of Killer Be Killed, too.

Contest: Win a signed copy of Judas Priest’s ‘Redeemer of Souls!’

Posted by on July 31, 2015

This week, Judas Priest announced that they would be touring this fall with Mastodon. Given that it’s in support of last year’s pretty excellent Redeemer of Souls, we thought we would do something about it, so we dug around in Metal Insider’s archives, and found a signed copy of the album from when we met the band and […]

All of ‘St. Anger’ played at once sounds better than it does separate

Posted by on July 31, 2015

A lot has been said about Metallica’s St. Anger, much of it intensely negative. The band’s eighth album was recorded pretty terribly, didn’t have a single guitar solo on it, and is probably the least popular album the band’s released. Some have tried to make it sound better, but it wasn’t until now that someone’s […]

Dissident Aggression: Godhunter vs Destroyer of Light – Endsville

Posted by on July 31, 2015

What do you get when you take two Molotov cocktails built out of cheap beer and whiskey bottles, thrown out of an unmarked van barreling down a dusty old highway at about 100 miles per hour? You get the split release from two doom metal/stoner rock/sludge acts about to make some serious noise (literally and […]

Slayer already have six new songs recorded

Posted by on July 31, 2015

Slayer’s been in the news a lot lately, but less about their forthcoming album, Repentless, and more about guitarist Kerry King’s thoughts on the Mayhem Festival and its cofounder, Kevin Lyman. He’s really beginning to sound like a broken record, and at the very least, he should’ve maybe waited until the tour was over to run […]
