Is Lamb of God’s Drummer Slipknot’s New Drummer?

Since "The Negative One" came out, people have been speculating on who the new drummer for Slipknot is.  Some people think it's still Joey Jordison, since the drum sound is similar.  But more and more people are commenting on the style being that of Chris Adler, the drummer for Lamb of God!

A lot of people.

So many, that Chris has responded to the questions with the most, "I am the drummer" response possible, without actually saying that he's the drummer.

Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday – Welcome to Jurassic Park

1993, that glorious film by the name of Jurassic Park showed up in theaters. I remember begging my mother to bring me to the theater to see it, which in the end, I saw it about 5 times in theaters if I remember right. I had action figures, play sets, etc. I freakin' loved Jurassic Park.

19 years later after the film was released, I finally got to visit Jurassic Park.

Johnnie’s TBT – Meeting Metallica in 1997

Today is the anniversary of Metallica's black album release, so I figured I try this throwback Thursday thing for once.

This doesn't go back to '92, but '97, when Metallica was touring for the Load album, before Reload came out.  I got the chance to hit a couple shows, as I was part of a station event where we gave away a trip to Phoenix for the Metallica show on January 5th, and then we raced back for the show in Las Cruces on January 6th.

Metallica’s Black Album Came Out on This Day

In 1992, I was in Kansas getting ready for work, and I clearly remember seeing the video for "Enter Sandman" come on MTV.  Yes, this was back when MTV actually showed music videos, and not crappy (un)reality shows.  Where were you?  What were you doing?

There was so much anticipation for the new album, since they'd been touring relentlessly for their previous albums, and everyone was excited to see what they would do to top ...And Justice for All.

They went in a totally different direction, instead of trying to top it!

Games To Try Before You Die: Splatterhouse (XB360,PS3)

Blood, guts, decapitations, death, and heavy metal. This game is the definition of all of that! When this game was first announced, I got pretty excited. It was an old school beat em' up in the 21st century. The game has been critically panned by critics everywhere, but I loved it.

Mickey Rourke Accepts ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Casually Calls Out Derek Jeter

Looks like Mickey Rourke is down with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, because Seth Meyers did not skimp on the ice, the water, or the "bucket" on last night's 'Late Night.' Rourke appeared on the show to chat about next week's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,' but things soon turned to more pressing
