tr00 & False: Weekly Recap of Fest Lineups, Re-releases, Grammy nods and more
It’s hard to be tr00. In this new Metal Injection feature, every week, the editors of MetalSucks.net, Axl Rosenberg and Vince Neilstein, will dissect the week’s stories and decide which stories are deemed worthy of the title “tr00″and admonish all posers who are false and upset the metal gods. Here are this week’s entries:
NEW ENGLAND METAL AND HARDCORE FESTIVAL
Best. Lineup. Ever?
Their new song, "True Enemy," is the shit – evil and fucked up and totally awesome for getting high to all at once. So now Century can rest a little easier about losing Behemoth.
The pagan metal band's new album, Slania, is like In Flames with flutes and fiddles and shit. It's currently streaming on the band's MySpace page; then you can check them out when they tour the States this year as part of Paganfest USA.
A study shows that it helps boost album sales. So now we can tell our moms that we do contribute something to society.
Just six months after the release of the shitastic Lead Sails, Paper Anchor the band is putting out one of those "expanded editions" featuring some crappy new songs and a DVD so people will buy the album a second time. What up, Atreyu? You dudes felt you hadn't punished your fans enough the first time you put out the album? Go watch Neverending Story some more. Douche bags.
Ola Frenning split, meaning the band has lost two guitarists in as many years. Can this once awesome Gothenburg band survive?
TOM ARAYA AND HIS FAMILY AT THE GRAMMYS
Yeah yeah yeah, so his wife is pretty hot. But the look on the Slayer front man's daughter's face in this picture pretty much says it all. No, little Araya girl, the Grammys are most certainly not metal.
