Jimmy Urine filmed while performing their hit track “Tornado” on stage in Dallas, TX. Mindless Self Indulgence is a special kind of music that you have to just let everything go and just enjoy yourself, that or be fucked up on all kinds of weird drugs. Either way, their fun to listen to and pretty darn good live. It’s white boy hip hop with a weird punk twist to it that also has unique singing involved. Check it out.
At least he doesn’t want to watch you suck his dick?
It’s like 1997 all up in that bitch. Here is Rammstein playing “The Beautiful People” with Marilyn Manson on the microphone.
THIS VIDEO IS FUCKING POINTLESS
This week we tone down the guitars, slow down the percussion and tell the mad vocalist to take a hike and replace them with incredibly talented singer/guitarist/song writer Chelsea Wolfe. Her style may not be exactly “metal” but she has this goth/doom presence about her and the music she puts out is unlike anything else that I listen to. Her voice is simply, beautiful. It’s gives you goosebumps, it makes you feel the music and if you are like KeepItWolfSon, it makes you fall in love over and over.
Enjoy Chelsea Wolfe. Grab a cup of coffee, smoke a bowl and kick the fuck back. Grab a loved one and dance around. Feel the music…it’s very unique. Visit her Facebook and Twitter for updates, news and random shit. Also, visit her official site!
According to the MTV News, actor Johnny Depp and shock rocker Marilyn Manson recorded a cover of Carly Simon‘s 1972 hit “You’re So Vain” for the singer’s upcoming eighth studio album, “Born Villain”, which is due out on May 1. Depp reportedly played both the lead guitar and drums on the track, while Manson handled the vocal duties.
Speaking about the collaboration, Manson told MTV News that the duo decided on doing “a cover of a song which we thought was ironic for each other.” He added, “[Johnny] played drums and lead guitar, and I played guitar and sang. It’s a bonus track on my new record and the video will probably be us looking at each other in a mirror.”
I wonder if Tim Burton has any say in this partnership. If you haven’t heard Manson’s new track, do it. It’s not too shabby.
Metallica’s attempt to do something different, before St. Anger, before Lulu. “Mama Said” is a country rock ballad that was featured on the album “Load“. I never thought this was a bad song but the video is lackluster. If you want to see James all dressed up like a cowboy and in the back of a fake vehicle playing an acoustic guitar, then this is exactly what you need. Other than that, no performance…a glimpse of the rest of the band (Remember Jason Newsted?) and shitty footage. It’s weird just now seeing this video after all these years though.
Metallica – Mama Said
The Summer Slaughter Tour, one of the heaviest touring metal festivals of the year, is letting you decide who opens up the entire thing! The polls have been open for a couple of days now and it doesn’t state when they will close. Each band is definitely worthy of the spot but only one will win! So who will share the stage with Cannibal Corpse, Between the Buried and Me, The Faceless, Exhumed, Goatwhore and Veil of Maya? The nominees are on the picture below.
Visit The Summer Slaughter Tour Facebook page, click on the “VOTING” on the left hand side of the page and install the app. You will then be allowed to properly vote for which band you seem fit to open. As I post this, Fallujah is currently winning but Vildhjarta is right behind them. Will Vildhjarta catch up? Will Enfold Darkness come back and take it all?
Bow down to the lords of the low end. This week’s focus on Fretboard Friday is Evan Brewer and Nick Schendzielos doing what they do best on their bass guitars, rip that shit up!!! Just watch and learn. I highly recommend watching these even if you don’t play bass, you’ll respect them a little more I’m sure of it.
God Forbid, a band I was heavily into around 2004-2005. Since then I really haven’t paid much attention to them, I lost interest. However, I’m very interested in this new album that they are about to release. They are now rocking some 7 string guitars and their sound is ultra heavy. The tone is obviously lower than classic God Forbid but I can definitely hear their own groove and style once again. I’m amped up for this new album! The song “Don’t Tell Me What to Dream” is a good one, check it out!

Melodic thrash/death metal from Russia! Shturm’s new song “Solitude Beside” is off of their new album, “Karmaruna“. I’ve never heard of them before but I do like what I am hearing. Shturm combines the furious sounds of both thrash and death metal, adds a little melody and executes it with a style that is different from the usual combination of the two genres. Vocal style fits in well with the music and altogether I’d say this is a solid band.
Check them out on Facebook!
Better late than never, here is a different take on progressive metal.
The name itself, Exotic Animal Petting Zoo, is enough to spark interest in many things. Especially if it’s a rock band, with a name like that you HAVE to see what they are about. I think it’s an incredible strategy because it immediately makes you want to read about the band, listen to the band and see what they have to offer. Well, once the music starts, Exotic Animal Petting Zoo come in and give us exactly what we should expect for the rest of their new album, “Tree of Tongues“. It’s a forceful impact of energy and just a huge wall of sound that isn’t like what I usually listen to. I’m usually the death, black, grind and doom kind of guy. With a few exceptions of course so when I saw that EAPZ was compared to bands like Deftones and Dillinger Escape Plan I was like “Yeah, fucking right. That’s some ballsy shit saying your sound is similar to their sound.” Well, they are pretty fucking close and so much more. Exotic Animal Petting Zoo’s “Tree of Tongues” is new, fun, fresh and really really really good. It’s an entirely new genre of music, due to the fact they have no barriers. The sound on Tree of Tongues is a unique sound and I am literally blown away after each and every listen.
So apparently the band that likes to shred your face off and feed it to the local folk are going to tour in Europe! A complete listing of dates is available below. Guitarist Topon Dos commented on the upcoming run:
“It’s been a couple of years since we’ve last been to Europe, so we’re excited not only to finally get back over there, but to also have the opportunity to play some countries like Finland and Hungary for the first time. We’ve been ripping through a bunch of songs from our new album “Die Miserable” recently, so you can expect to hear a lot of newer tunes. See you soon!”
Also, the band has been nominated for Canada’s prestigious 2012 Juno awards in the Metal/Hard Music Album of the Year category and Sirius XM’s Indies Metal Artist/Group of the Year category. More info on the Juno awards is available here while voting for the Sirius XM awards can be accessed here. So be sure to go and vote for FUCK THE FACTS and help them win! Unless of course you like some other Canadian band more, then vote for them I guess. It’s your choice! In case you haven’t heard of the new album, be sure to check out their bandcamp page because the new album “Die Miserable” is streaming in full.
Oh yeah, here are the tour dates!

At The Graves has posted up their latest album “Solar” on their bandcamp and it’s some damn good groovin’ sludge. Even slowing it down a bit here n there and adding a doom element to it. The music has a slight grunge feel to it as well, vocals are an aggressive attack and are organic. They don’t feel over processed and “Pro-Tooled”, they feel natural and the music production sounds pretty fucking good too. Again, not overly processed and computerized. Give At The Graves a listen to, you will enjoy what you hear. If you INSIST that I make a comparison I’d say ATG has an eerie sound like The Atlas Moth and a sludge tone similar to Torche. It’s good shit, go listen to it now.
