Jeff Kendrick (Devildriver) Recently Had His Guitar Stolen

Guitar is similar to this one, not exact though

Well damn. Someone just straight up left the venue with Kendrick’s red ESP Horizon that apparently he especially uses for a certain song while playing live. The theft happened in Joliet, IL after the band performed. If you happen to see this man (pictured below, click to enlarge) then get a hold of authority and report the suspect. Get Jeff his guitar back!

I Don’t Know What The ECHO Awards Are But Seeing RAMMSTEIN Perform With MARILYN MANSON Is Pretty Sweet

It’s like 1997 all up in that bitch. Here is Rammstein playing “The Beautiful People” with Marilyn Manson on the microphone.

GALAKTIKON: Brendon Small’s (Dethklok) Sweet Metal Project Contains Some Impressive Music And Vocals!

It’s obvious that Brendon Small is a genius and ultra talented person. He managed to create a bad ass metal cartoon show with actual music that he himself made, went on tour under the Dethklok name and lived like a rock star with one of the coolest tour buses I’ve ever seen. Now Mr. Small is putting out another big hit, this time with his new project Galaktikon and I must say….bravo. I didn’t know what to expect but I had a feeling it would just sound like Dethklok. Well…no actually, not even close. The song “On My Way” has no death metal vocals or even super fast tremolo picking and blast beats. It features some great riffs, sweet licks and a groovy bass line. Drums are great and the coolest thing about the vocals is there is actual singing going on. It’s like Snakes n Barrels meets Devin Townsend in a weird way. Just listen to the song, you’ll dig it.

Emo Hair & Lipstick: MARILYN MANSON Reveals Album Art For “Born Villain”, Tracklist details

Not much to say really, it’s Manson cover art. Nothing exciting, more underwhelming than anything. Then again Manson self portrait has always been the main focus on his cover art, just with make up and bullshit splashed all over him. Not really creative at all.


Congratulations to both Cerebral Bore and Earache Records for winning the poll that The Summer Slaughter Tour had going for the past week. They fit in perfectly and hopefully they can get their VISA shit taken care of so they can stay on the entire tour. The lineup thus far is:

Cannibal Corpse
Between the Buried and Me
The Faceless
Job For A Cowboy
Veil of Maya
Cerebral Bore

No dates as of yet but I’ll keep you up to date on those as soon as I know. Congrats again guys/gal!!

MELECHESH To Release Digital EP

Blackened thrash band Melechesh will be releasing a 3 song EP called “Mystics of the Pillar II” on April 27th in Europe and May 1st in North America via Nuclear Blast Records.

EP tracklist:

01. Mystics Of The Pillar (Alternate Ending)
02. Sacred Geometry (Instrumental)
03. The Epigenesis (Instrumental)

Ashmedi of Melechesh commented: “We recorded two different ending version of ‘Mystics Of The Pillar’ ā€” this one changes tempo and picks up steam. Why? Because we felt like it; a song with two different endings is not too common in this day and age. Last minute we chose one to be included on the album, thus the second version was not mixed and mastered ’till a much later date. We also decided to release a couple of instrumental versions to our songs, namely ‘The Epigenesis’ title track, which is a 12-13 minute epic, and ‘Sacred Geometry’. Both are multifaceted and work perfect just as instrumental works. We actually have an instrumental version of the entire album mixed and mastered so enjoy these couple of tracks.”
