Alestorm’s ‘Drink’ Video Premieres and is Awesome [Video]

I love the band Alestorm, those crazy "Bacon Powered Pirate Core" guys from Scotland!  

They've got a new album, "Sunset on the Golden Age,"which comes out next week, and the first song they've let out for it is this amazing song titled "Drink!" 

I think they're going for the hearts of all radio people out there, honestly!

What more could you ask for from a video? Pirates, pirate ships, gallons of alcohol, proper ladies stripping down and dancing on a table, musicians totally playing instruments that don't match the sounds, partying, messes...this video has it all!

Metalhead Ned Chats with Erik of Watain on American Metal, Watain’s Performance, and More!

When I think extreme performance, Watain is the definition of that for me. I have yet to see these guys live, but after watching video's of them perform, it is one of the most awesome and disgusting things I will ever see.

It's metal as hell!

Then I got the email saying, "Hey, wanna talk to Watain?" Well, of course I do!

Metalhead Ned Chats With Rob Zombie About New Movie, High School Life, and More!

When I was a kid, I had a tendency to listen to the 'pop' edge of music. I loved the 'Now' series and I still have 'Now 1.' One day though, my brother and his friends were listening to these new bands, one of them was Korn and the other, Rob Zombie. Little did I know, a little over 10 years later, I would be chatting with the man himself!
