GWAR has been around the metal scene for decades now. They are the definition of "Shock Rock." If you want to be coated in blood (fake blood), mosh hardcore, and get eaten by space aliens, you go to a GWAR show. Starting up their new tour, I got the chance to catch up with the scum dog, known as Oderus Urungus!
Readers of Rolling Stone have voted in an online poll of "The Greatest Heavy Metal Albums of All Time" and the results are in with Metallica topping the list with their 1986 album, Master Of Puppets. According to the voters, Metallica are the kings of metal with not only the top album on the list, but four records in the top ten.
The Trespass America Festival featured Five Finger Death Punch, Trivium, Pop Evil, Emmure, Battlecross, and a little known band named KILLSWITCH ENGAGE. Recently lead vocalist Howard Jones departed from the group with complications of Diabetes. Left without a vocalist, Killswitch Engage welcomed back original singer Jesse Leach to the group. I was able to catch up with him while on tour!
Dethklok is the self proclaimed 'most brutal' metal band of all time. If you have seen the Adult Swim show Metalocalypse, you would agree with that statement. Gearing up for a new album named, 'Dethalbum III,' Dethklok has released a track with one of the best titles in music history! If you are a metal fan, this tune does not disappoint...
Ladies in metal is on the best things to ever happen to music. Angela Gassow (Arch Enemy), Maria Brink (In This Moment), you name them. Metal Ladies is the definition of AWESOME! Check this out, there is this band that is not that well known (in America at least), but you should know of them, and that is Amaranthe! Guess what? They have a new album in the works.
Seems like certain news outlets need to check their facts before they post on their website. Looks like along with bands such as Angry Aryans, Force Fed Hate, (and more I refuse to post because of their names...), Hatebreed was tagged along in a list of 'White Power' bands! The band and the fans are not to happy about the news.
It is a sad day in the metal community as Lamb of God and Dethklok are forced to cancel their upcoming tour that was slated to start in Seattle, WA. Even worse, they were scheduled to play here in Grand Rapids, MI at the Delta Plex!
