Brazilian thrash pioneers and innovators Sepultura are slated to release their 13th studio album, titled 'The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be the Heart.' The record is slated for an Oct. 25 release in Europe and Oct. 29 in the United States via Nuclear Blast.
The Sunset's Strip's most infamous export, Mötley Crüe, have been giving fans a piece of their action for 30 years. Their over-the-top stage show and attitude have kept them busy, playing stadiums all over the world and bringing back the spirit of '80s. Singer Vince Neil recently reaffirmed bassist Nikki Sixx's declaration that the band would call it quits in the near future, but guitarist Mick Mars says one of the reasons Neil gave is not accurate.
Metal fans rejoice! British titans Judas Priest have officially completed the writing process for their new album and have started the recording process, producing the album themselves. In addition to this good news, the band has also joined the ranks for the next edition of Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp, which already boasts a host of other metal gods like Zakk Wylde, Rudy Sarzo, Lita Ford and Vinny Appice.
Who? What? Where? When? How? In a report from the Patch, metal hooligans in Commack, New York, vandalized a building in Wicks Park by painting the Slayer logo and a pentagram alongside it (see a photo of the graffiti here). Local police initially investigated the vandalism to be associated with a hate crime after a resident had placed a call to the authorities.
Progressive metal champions Dream Theater are poised to release their latest album, a self-titled effort, next month, marking the group's second disc with drummer Mike Mangini. As we all know, Mangini replaced former drummer Mike Portnoy, who left the band then attempted to return but was rebuffed. With Portnoy recently again saying he would return to the band in a heartbeat if asked, frontman James Labrie has weighed in on the matter.
The melodic death metal extremists in the Black Dahlia Murder are gearing up to hit the road once more, fresh off their sixth album 'Everblack.' The tour, dubbed "Into the Everblack," features melodic black thrash hounds Skeletonwitch, budding technical death metallers Fallujah, with Noisem and Wolvhammer divvying up select dates as the opener.
GWAR's highly anticipated new album 'Battle Maximus' is drawing near! This album marks the debut of new guitarist Pustulus Maximus, who has taken up the axe in place of the fallen Scumdog, Flattus Maximus (Corey Smoot). They've already released 'Madness at the Core of Time' and now have deemed us worthy of hearing another new jam called 'Bloodbath' steaming at Noisey. Somehow, it took the band that literally kills everyone over 25 years to pen a song with that title.
The ever-satisfying Heavy MTL festival, which takes place in Montreal, Canada, every summer, delivered yet again. The festival was packed with some of metal's biggest acts and displayed a particularly diverse lineup that appeals to all sorts of fans across the genre's vast spectrum. The billing ranged from Avenged Sevenfold and Godsmack, to Children of Bodom and At The Gates, to Mastodon and Finntroll, with a host of others gracing the stage including a special performance from Danzig with Doyle and Rob Zombie.
Korn are two decades into their career and still as prolific as ever. Age has not managed to slow down the pioneering group and 'The Paradigm Shift' will mark the band's 11th studio album. Now the band has unveiled the disc's intriguing artwork and full track list.
The outlaws in Five Finger Death Punch have just announced the Wrong Side of Heaven headlining tour that will span the course of nearly six weeks. With a summer already packed full of co-headlining dates with Rob Zombie in North America on the Mayhem Festival, the knuckle-sandwich metallers are earning their road warrior status.
The melodic death/thrash hounds in Michigan’s Battlecross have just released the video for ‘Never Coming Back’ off of their upcoming album ‘War of Will.’ Rather than going the route of the abandoned warehouse that many an extreme band have used as a backdrop, Battlecross stripped everything down and jam out in nothing but white walls and a floor.
