Check Out Anthrax’ New Song from the Game of Thrones Mixtape 2

Game of Thrones had a big challenge when they wanted to release soundtracks of current music, didn't they? But with so many musicians being fans of the show, they're already into the second one! Can you imagine Tyrion listening to this on the MP3 player on his saddle? LOL

The first mixtape was full of songs I probably wouldn't listen to, but the new one, 'Catch the Throne The Mixtape 2', looks like a great one! It's got Mushroomhead, Mastodon, Killswitch Engage, and Anthrax on it, so you know at least four of the songs will be good!

The new Three Days Grace album, Human, comes out next Tuesday, and to prepare us for the new release, the band has released a new song to get us ready. The song is called 'Human Race', and it's a bit different than the last two songs they've sent us from the new album.

'Human Race' is a lot more moody, and has more synth sounds in it than either 'I Am Machine' or 'Painkiller'.

Twister Sister and Adrenaline Mob Drummer A.J. Pero Died Today on Tour

Twisted Sister/Adrenaline Mob drummer A.J. Pero passed away this morning, in his bunk on the Adrenaline Mob tour bus.

Twisted Sister has always been one of those bands that you love, but sometimes forget about. Not because they're easy to forget, but because they haven't released anything new in a while. But a great band, with amazing songs.

When I first started listening to them, A.J. Pero was the monster behind the drum kit, and was the guy everyone saw playing that memorable drum intro for 'We're Not Gonna Take It' from Stay Hungry, one of the best songs and videos from the 80s.

Humor-Cored Band Psychostick Parodies Kenny Loggins’ ‘Danger Zone’ [Video]

Psychostick could be considered one of the greatest bands of all time.

I'm actually a little suprised that they haven't performed a Gilda's LaughFest show. Maybe I can convince the group to perform next year!

Psychostick has released a new video for its latest song -- a metal cover of the Top Gun movie theme song, "Danger Zone." Don't deny it; you know the Kenny Loggins song.
