Killswitch Engage Part Ways With Singer

KNAC.com – Kinda bummed about the news that Howard Jones is no longer with Killswitch Engage (follow the link for the full story on KNAC).   HoJo’s from Columbus, so it was always cool knowing he was out there on the road, kicking ass and making a name for himself.  Another fine example of the veritable […]

2 1/2 Men – The Verdict

To follow up on my previous post, after having watched the season premiere of ‘2 1/2 Men’ as well as Charlie Sheen’s roast on Comedy Central, well – Sheen’s roast wins. Kutcher’s performance – while I’m sure was droolworthy for anyone wishing to see insinuations of his nakedness, was far too derivative of his Kelso […]

2 1/2 Sheens

Like many folks, I plan on watching the premiere of “2 and 1/2 Men” tonight live (sans DVR – EGADS!) & then most likely flipping over to the Charlie Sheen roast on Comedy Central. After it’s all over, I’m wondering which will actually be the funnier of the two (probably the roast, but it won’t […]

Hear Jamey Jasta’s Solo Release – Free.

Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed, Kingdom of Sorrow) just released his first solo album, called simply ‘Jasta’, and was kind enough to do so on my birthday (July 26th – did you send me a gift?). What’s cool about this is you can hear the entire thing for free on AOL music (HERE). Thanks to Blabbermouth.net for […]

RIP Seth Putnam

According to Anal C**T’s publicist, and as seen on  Blabbermouth.net HERE, vocalist Seth Putnam apparently died of a heart attack yesterday at age 43.  Very sad news, indeed. Despite their extremely offensive lyrics & song titles (of which many fans have always suspected were for shock effect more than anything), Putnam & AxCx showed themselves […]

No Ozzfest 2011

KNAC.com – This was announced last Friday (the 13th ironically), but Ozzy has confirmed there will be no Ozzfest 2011. Apparently the Prince of Darkness plans to be touring over in Europe this summer – so my readers across the pond, rejoice! For the rest of us, there’s plenty of other shows/tours to fill the […]

Surprise Announcement

Since I’m being lazy and not writing up the reviews (yet) that I mentioned, tide yourself over with this little news announcement we received today. . .

Happy SkyNet Day!

If you followed “The Sarah Connor Chronicles” during it’s short run on network TV, then you may recall that technically today, according to the storyline, is when SkyNet launched it’s assault on mankind (after having become self-aware on 4/19). Notice the clever avoidance of anything special on 4/20, those wacky producers. In a related coincidence, […]

The Horror! William Shatner To Release New CD!!

Blabbermouth.net – File this under “Signs of the Apocalypse”, but William Shatner is working on a new CD. . . and it’s got a metal edge to it. Yeah, really. Revolver magazine even made him an Honorary Headbanger. See – signs of the apocalypse! And check out ole’ Bill’s list of guest musicians; Zakk Wylde, […]

Kopek Is Coming To Columbus!

If you’ve been a visitor here before, you know that The Rev really likes Irish rockers Kopek & their new album “White Collar Lies”. Well, they’re touring the States currently, and tomorrow night (4/1) they’ll hit the stage with Cold and Egypt Central at the legendary Alrosa Villa in Columbus, Ohio. Folks, this band has […]
