The band will be comprised of the Human-era lineup of guitarist Paul Masvidal, bassist Steve DiGiorgio, and drummer Sean Reinert. But who will be the vocalist? Today, we have the answer. (more…)
Well this is definitely great news. The Death To All tour, which pays tribute to late legendary vocalist and guitarist Chuck Shuldiner is coming back for another run in 2013. Last year, the first iteration of the tour visited a handful of stops with an all-star lineup of former members of Death, but was later plagued with drama surrounding the financials of the event, with some musicians not getting paid by the organizers, Sick Drummer, but now the tour is back on with Sick Drummer out of the picture. Here are the US dates: (more…)

Spongebob Squarepants was responsible for the first metal mashup of the modern era, with Job For A Cowboy [link] but now the humor has been refreshed, in glorious HD. This time, Spongebob is signing the tune of DEATH, the track Misanthrope off the classic Death album Symbolic. This is pretty great.
Happy 2013 Metal Injection Junkies! 2012 proved to be a huge year for Metal Injection and even some of us personally, but in order to see any kind of growth, you sometimes have to look to the past to notice where you stand today.
Last year I created a retrospective series called On The Record that looked back on the changes in metal over the last 10 years. Now that we've celebrated the end of 2012 with our usual year-end round up lists, I thought it might be fun to step back even further in time and see just how far we've come in 25 years. In this post I'll be taking a look at the year 1987! (more…)

The Death To All shows that happened in July were a landmark for death metal fans everywhere. I can't think of one person who didn't have glowing things to say about the shows. However, now that the dust has settled controversy has arisen.
Last week, there were reports surfacing online that fans who ordered tickets to the cancelled Atlanta and Dallas shows were not getting their refunds, that bands were not being paid and worse yet, the charity, Sweet Relief that this whole thing was set up for did not get a penny yet, and the blame was being placed on the show promoters, Sick Drummer Magazine.
Seeing as though there are two sides to any story, before we published anything, we wanted to get word from Sick Drummer. In the interest of full disclosure, we have worked with Sick Drummer in the past and we are both members of the Blast Beat ad network, and thus wanted to get his side, as we have had nothing but good dealings with him in the past and for me, personally, this seemed out of character.

Whether you're a music collector or download enthusiast, I'm sure you have wondered about the meaning and motives behind the artwork representing some of the most recognizable releases in metal. Turns out so have Pure Grain Audio, who have compiled some of these releases as part of their new blog series "…And Justice For Art".

Their latest installment focuses on artist Rene Miville and his work on Death's Symbolic, an album cover I'm sure we've all wondered about.
While both Rene Miville and Death mastermind Chuck Schuldiner have since passed away, the entry still contains an interesting outlook on details I've personally never picked up on before: (more…)
