Earache makes deal with Nachtmystium; Blake Judd makes deal with people he ripped off

Posted by on October 31, 2016

If there’s one thing we know about firsthand, it’s being ripped off by Nachtmystium frontman Blake Judd. We’d scheduled the band to play our 2013 CMJ showcase, and he’d badgered us repeatedly over email for the money up front. The promoter relented and wired it to him, and of course, that show never happened for […]

Posted by on October 31, 2016

If you were at New York’s Webster Hall a few weeks back, you might have caught the Dillinger Escape Plan. If you were in the pit, you might have literally caught singer Greg Puciato as he stage dove into the crowd, which you might have seen if you follow Metal Insider on Instagram. Regardless, as […]

Posted by on October 31, 2016

If you stopped by an independent record store and got a Metallica mask over the weekend, congratulations on the lamest costume ever. That being said, if you got one, you’ve spent the last half hour listening to”Atlas, Rise!,” another new track from Metallica’s Hardwired… To Self Destruct. We’ll have the whole album in a little over […]

Some of Aerosmith meet Obama as others distance themselves

Posted by on October 31, 2016

On Friday, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith got to hang out with President Obama. Given that their fan club is called Aero Force One and they have an album called Get Your Wings, you’d think that it might have gone without incident. You’d be wrong. Joe Perry spoke to Boston-area blog Vanyaland about the […]

Code Orange return with track from third album

Posted by on October 31, 2016

Remember back when Pittsburgh’s Code Orange were Code Orange Kids? That was only for their first album, and admittedly, they were pretty young at the time. They changed their name for 2014’s sophomore album, I Am King, which more or less demanded they be taken seriously without saying a word. Today, they revealed the title track […]

Diamond Head’s Brian Tatler talks U.S. tour, new album, Metallica connection

Posted by on October 31, 2016

Arguably, Diamond Head could be considered the #3 most influential band to come out of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement, following closely behind Iron Maiden and Motorhead. Diamond Head is also – and this is unquestionable, essential to the birth of thrash, as evidenced by the not-so-secret heapings of praise and notes […]

Dee Snider, Six Feet Under’s Chris Barnes fight, make up on Twitter

Posted by on October 31, 2016

Last week, Noisey ran an interview with Dee Snider. The soon to be former Twisted Sister frontman spoke about his new solo album, but also plenty about Twisted Sister and his past, including when he spoke to the senate against censorship. When asked how far was too far, he brought up Cannibal Corpse, saying he […]

Chris Jericho explains why he “leaked” false Avenged Sevenfold information

Posted by on October 31, 2016

The first time we heard a release date for Avenged Sevenfold’s The Stage was courtesy of Fozzy frontman and former wrestler Chris Jericho. Earlier this month, his Instagram contained a December 9th release date for the band’s album, and also another red herring, the hashtag #voltaicoceans. It wasn’t necessarily reported as fact, but was certainly heavily […]

This is really happening: Chris Holmes getting reality show, ‘Holmes Sweet Holmes’

Posted by on October 28, 2016

Last year, former W.A.S.P. guitarist Chris Holmes popped up from out of nowhere with a solo album, Shitting Bricks. It was a little surprising, given that he’d moved to Europe a few years back between selling his Firebird and spouting some racist bullshit. The videos he released from the album, for “Let It Roar” and “Born, […]

New & Noteworthy, October 28th – Nightmare

Posted by on October 28, 2016

Let me start out this week by saying that very little surprises me in the world of new releases. The amount of advance research and preparation that goes into this column on a weekly basis is considerable, and because of it, I not only know what is coming out each week, but also what is […]
