Headbanging is not only encouraged and invited at Down shows. It’s expected. At the Orange Peel in Asheville, N.C. on Monday (May 21), the Phil Anselmo-fronted band performed the brand new song ‘The Misfortune Teller.’
Ozzy Osbourne is the ultimate crowd pleaser. With the Black Sabbath European tour tabled while guitarist Tony Iommi recovers from lymphoma, the Ozzy & Friends European tour kicked off last night (May 23) in Helsinki, Finland. Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler and longtime Ozzy guitarist Zakk Wylde joined the Prince of Darkness for a hit parade at the Hartwall Arena.
Last night’s episode (May 19) was the season finale of Season 10 of that ‘Metal Show’ and it closed on a high note with Pantera and Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul, who dropped by to discuss the 20th anniversary edition of ‘Vulgar Display of Power.’ It was a repeat engagement for the sticks handler, who guested on the show back when it filmed in NYC.
After images of drummer Bill Ward were removed from vintage and classic Black Sabbath photos posted in a background layout and a gallery on the band’s updated website caused a media frenzy, the band has issued a short statement via their publicist about the creative cropping and skilled photo editing. Turns out they were acting on a request from Ward via his lawyer.
Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo revealed two pieces of important information about his main band while promoting his Philm side project. In a recent interview, the skinsman confirmed that Slayer are wrapping up a two-song EP due later this year. He revealed that vocalist/bassist Tom Araya is laying down his vocal tracks alongside guitarist Kerry King. He also shared that Slayer will never stray from the left-hand metal path, either.
Former Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar weighed in on the recent VH controversy, in which the band postponed 31 scheduled shows this summer without a specified reason. The rumor mill suggested that things had gotten contentious between the members once again. Since Hagar was a part of the band for a lengthy period of time, he’s well aware of the inner workings.
Metallica shared behind-the-scenes and onstage footage from their recent show in Prague, which took place in early May. The clip, which clocks in at 22 minutes, follows the band as it soundchecks before the gig, as it meets and greets fans and as it performs ‘The Struggle Within.’ It’s like having an all-access pass to ‘Tallica in Europe.
