Judas Priest heading back into studio next year

Posted by on November 30, 2015

Last year’s Judas Priest album, Redeemer of Souls, was arguably the best Priest album since 1990’s Painkiller.

Kerry King surprised it took this long for terrorists to attack rock concert

Posted by on November 28, 2015

First of all, if you haven’t gotten to see Eagles of Death Metal’s wrenching interview with Vice, you should do that right now. It’s hard to watch, yet strangely positive despite that.

After the band’s successful Bad Magic album was released and they hit the road in support of it, a handful of shows had to be cancelled after Lemmy took ill. This time, however, it’s not the frontman that’s fallen ill, but guitarist Phil Campbell, and the band’s been […]

Slayer to tour with Testament, Carcass this Spring

Posted by on November 27, 2015

Slayer have been pretty great at picking out bands to tour with lately. A few years ago, it was Gojira, which probably turned the French band on to a lot of aging Slayer fans and perhaps also got some younger people primarily going for Gojira to check out the headliner for the first time. They […]
