All That Remains On Japanese Earthquake

All That Remains have sent out a press release concerning their experiences in Japan this past week, and I think it’s an interesting account of what they saw (and FELT). The YouTube clip below is Phil Labonte talking on CNN about the event. Here’s praying for the people of Sendai and elsewhere in Japan as […]

Morbid Angel Announce New Album Title, Intentionally Ignore Ignominious

Blabbermouth.net – Legendary Florida Death Metal pioneers Morbid Angel have announced their new album will be called ‘Illud Divinum Insanus’, thus perpetuating their tradition of each album title follow alphabetically from the one before it. So yeah, the next one should start with a ‘J’ etc.   I thought I was SO SMART for noticing […]

Gary Holt Filling In With Slayer – Because Of Zombie Infestation

KNAC.com – The linked article off KNAC was just too good not to comment on here. First off, how very cool that Gary Holt [Exodus] is filling in for Jeff Hanneman while Slayer continues on tour in Australia. Holt is an awesome guitarist, only wish I could see him tackle the Slaytanic catalog in person. […]

SUN UK: Gary Moore’s Death Involved Alcohol

KNAC.com – So the SUN UK is reporting that there are indications Gary Moore might have died a la John Bonham & Bon Scott, i.e. choking on his own vomit. Horrible news – wasn’t bad enough that we lost one of the most under-rated guitarists in rock, but now he’ll be known for dying after […]

Check it out HERE as unlike some stars where their home looks nothing like you’d expect (Ozzy for example, doesn’t dwell […]

Sacha Baron Cohen Set To Portray Freddie Mercury in Film

MSN.com – This could either be awesome. . . or the worst thing YET to tarnish Freddie’s memory. Even worse than the band continuing to perform without him, with the likes of George Michael or Britney Spears.

Coming To Skatopia

Whatcha  doin’ Saturday, June 26th?  If you’re me, you’re butt deep in hippies at Columbus’ Comfest, chugging beers and watching local acts on 5 stages. HOWEVER, if you’re not me (as most of you aren’t) AND you are within driving/flying/teleporting distance of Rutland Ohio (in scenic & fragrant Meigs County), you could catch a show […]

Today Is International Day Of Slayer

Slayer.net – Yep, in case you were not aware – today is the fourth annual International Day Of Slayer. What does this mean? Well, stuff is on sale at Slayer.net (blah blah text 666 from your cellphone for 10% off etc.) so check that out if you’re so inclined. Otherwise, I suggest blasting a little […]
