One thing is on everyone's mind for the next Mastodon record, and that's where the hell they're going to go next in terms of their overall sound! I mean, they've been working on this for a while now.
When I first started playing bass in high school, my friend Thomas and I made it a point, as all metal youngsters do, to learn songs by our favorite bands. The two of us spent years slaughtering songs by Metallica, Black Sabbath, and, of course, Slayer. As a metal fan, it is hard to not address the [...]
The metal world is still shocked about the news that broke yesterday that Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman of Slayer passed away due to liver failure at the young age of 49. Musicians everywhere have been paying tribute, and here is a roundup of their kind words for the influential guitarist:
Machine Head have been looking for a bassist for a little while now, and even had some big names like Christian Olde Wolbers formerly of Fear Factory try out. Now they're getting down to the wire.
What the hell is going on with Iron Maiden-related things lately? At first it was just within the band, having Nicko McBrain's wife and son going nuts, but apparently that insanity has spread to fans.
Greetings once again all you metal nerds. This was a rough week. Rough in a sense that there was almost too much good stuff to talk about from so many genres, subgenres, subsubgenres, etc. I could have gone on and on with this week's WEEKLY INJECTION, but alas, the fancy beer I can't pronounce is [...]
New Vicious Rumors is coming. Their new album, Electric Punishment will be released through SPV / Steamhammer on April 26th in Germany, April 29th in Europe and May 7th in the US/Canada. I

Kind of a ho-hum week… a few notable releases but mostly crate digging. Next week is the fucking jam, though, so don't get too deep in hock jocking on Volbeat. Let's get to it, then.

Southern Lord would eat these guys up. No Salvation play a sludge/stoner-friendly hardcore that doesn't fit neatly into one category but would immediately gel on the current SL roster. For now they're self-releasing their debut EP, Faith, through Bandcamp (ie. digital only, which is where Southern Lord needs to step in… this is eminently vinyl-worthy).

There's also certain magazines like Metal Hammer, Terrorizer, and PROG that also ship with compilation discs. I always look forward to these discs because [...]
