Just because drummer Shannon Lucas is out of The Black Dahlia Murder, doesn't mean he's done with metal.
He already spoke about his collaboration with Killswitch's Adam D. and Corpsegrinder and now MetalSucks has uncovered a new project he's working on with some former bandmates. (more…)
Commence the spraying of loads upon loads inside your pants!
Corrections House, a new all-star group comprised of Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium) and Bruce Lamont (Yakuza) are launching their new project on the world of heavy music with a tour of the east coast set to kick off on January 21st. (more…)
Whoa! This is a surprise. After spending the last two years filling in for Jeff Hanneman due to Jeff's nasty spider bite, Exodus guitarist Gary Holt looks to have bro'd down enough with Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo that the two have decided to start jamming on a new project. (more…)
Bushido Brazil and Bamberg recently released the Sepultura Weizen beer to celebrate the band's 25th anniversary. (more…)
Just yesterday we told you that Mastodon is hunkering down to start writing new material for potential release next year.
Well, it looks like we won't be waiting too long. The band just posted the following status update: (more…)
It's really happening.
Late last week, a rumor popped up that Carcass is in the studio with famed British producer Colin Richardson working on their first new album in seventeen years.
It's no longer a rumor, it's a fact. (more…)
Motorhead bassist Lemmy Kilmister is a living legend. Everybody who comes in contact with the man has nothing but praise for the iconic bassist. We even had a chance to speak with him at the Golden Gods a few years ago, and Lemmy was as charismatic as usual.
With such charm, and legendary status in the rock world, it's easy to see how Lemmy would have no problem finding a nice girl to bring home for the night. You see, married life isn't for Lemmy, he's all about just having fun. Lemmy has claimed in the past to have slept with over 1,000 women, which initially sounds like an insane amount, but in a recent interview with Spin, the man put it all in perspective with a bit of mathematics: (more…)
Everybody knows I
love hate Psyopus, the avant grind band from Rochester, NY. We only have a million videos featuring the band when they were active (fun fact: they are the first band we ever interviewed for Metal Injection). Recently, the band has been on extended hiatus, with main man/guitarist Chris Arp just selling books and dvds of music instruction on eBay. But it looks like he's trying to get the old band back together. Here is the message he posted on his personal Facebook page: (more…)
When King ov Hell and Gaahl left Gorgoroth in 2006, the duo formed a group called God Seed. The two never released anything under the moniker, because Gaahl "retired" right before he was set to record vocals for their first album in 2009. King ended up recruiting Dimmu Borgir vocalist Shagrath to record 2010's monumental The Underworld Regime album under the name Ov Hell. Gaahl has since had a change of heart, after his stint in acting in musicals, God Seed is set to release I Begin on October 23rd. Here's the track listing: (more…)
I am not sure about the rest of you, but I often times find myself wondering just how awesome it would be to attend an adult camp. Instead of going on vacation, people would just go to camp. Throw in the idea of a camp designed for metal heads and music fans and you pretty much have my wet dream right there.
Well it seems someone decided to spy on my dirty dreams because this is now a reality. Introducing, Camping With Animals! A winter retreat from January 2nd to the 6th at Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, New York, featuring Animals As Leaders — Tosin Abasi, Javier Reyes and Matt Garstka, plus Evan Brewer, bassist from The Faceless. (more…)
Down's long-anticipated new EP, Down IV Part 1: The Purple EP comes out this Tuesday, but why wait? You can now stream the entire EP, courtesy of Billboard.com. And, in case you're wondering? The album absolutely RIPS. I mean, it's so sludgy, and riffy, it's Down at it's finest. Guitarists Kirk Windstein and Pepper Keenan have really outdone themselves. Phil's voice sounds as great as ever. Look, I'm just going to shutup and let you listen to this one. Spark one up, and hit play, let's get Down! (more…)
When I think about professional sports and which player and/or position seems to be the most intimidating, I always conclude that hands down, ice hockey goalies are the most intimidating players. They literally look like monsters with their giant pads and fiercely decorated masks. Fear plays a big role in maximizing their game. Getting into the opponent's head can and does create an advantage for the goalie. So it's only normal that more and more we are seeing intricate goalie masks being designed, and when looking to be intimidating as fuck the only natural choice is to have a Black Sabbath mask!

The Curiosity Rover landed on Mars on August 6th and while its primary mission is to research the Martian planet, collect data and send it back to earth, its secondary mission is to rock the shit out of that planet and any god damn aliens it finds. The incredibly smart engineers and scientists that have built this thing are not only intelligent but also cool too. (In high school, these scientists probably never got called, "cool".) (more…)
YES!!!!!!!!! It's all fucking done. Pig Destroyer announced today via Decibel magazine that their new album, which will be called Book Burner, will be released October 23rd via Relapse Records. The album will feature 19 tracks clocking in at a whopping 32 minutes, which averages out to 1:40 a song for all you math nerds. You can see the album art, attached to this post, and Blake Harrison, offical band programmer even recorded some behind the scenes footage on his iPhone. Watch: (more…)
Why hasn't this happened sooner? When you think of manliness in the '80s, if you're talking about action movies, it's Jean-Claude Van Damme, if you're talking about heavy metal…there are none more manly than Manowar. I mean look at this photo of them, all man!
So it obviously makes sense that the two forces of manliness are teaming up for a project. Van Damme's next movie needed a very rugged, testosterone-filled soundtrack to match all the explosions and spin kicks in the movie, so he called his good buddy Joey DeMaio, frontman of Manowar. The band will be scoring Soilder, due out sometime in the spring of 2013. Here's DeMaio's manly quote about why he accepted the gig: (more…)
