Nicolas Cage Stars in Metal Video – Losing His Freaking Mind

Sometimes Nicolas Cage can seem like a cartoon character in his movies, so it's awesome to see someone edit together a bunch of scenes of him losing his mind, and synching them up with some heavy-add Carnifex!

Beware, this music is NSFW, and there's a LOT of crazy Nic Cage facial weirdness going on.

ReVamp Shares Behind the Scenes Footage from Their Grand Rapids Show and More [Video]

On April 4th, Iced Earth, Sabaton and ReVamp kicked off their US tour here in Grand Rapids at the Intersection.  They all played amazing sets, even with the equipment problems ReVamp had during the day.

Check out the beginning of the behind the scenes video for some footage backstage at the Intersection.
