High on Fire‘s latest ‘De Vermis Mysteriis’ is deafening slab of muscular metal, but it’s also incredibly brainy and thought provoking, from a lyrical standpoint. Frontman/guitarist Matt Pike constructed a full-on
Southern California-based metal monsters Winds of Plague are currently busy writing their new album. They are certainly prolific, since they released ‘Against the World’ last April. The band plans to hit the studio before summer, which is sneaking up on us and will be here before you know it.
In 2012, thanks to the wonders of studio technology and the digital age, most records can be made without the players even sitting in the same room together. It’s a shame, since jamming out and feeding off on another’s energy is one of the true, pure beauties of collaborating. Such was not the case for Slash‘s upcoming album ‘Apocalyptic Love.’ The guitarist reveals that the platter, which he dubs a “straight up rock ‘n’ roll record,’ was recorded the old-fashioned way.
Down guitarist Kirk Windstein, a busy man who is also a member of Crowbar and Kingdom of Sorrow, checked in via the band’s Facebook page to offer a short and sweet update on the much anticipated upcoming EP, which is set to drop like a 10-ton hammer later this year. It’s tentatively titled ‘Down IV.’
Female-fronted metal band In This Moment are working on a new album, their fourth for longtime label Century Media. The band premiered the new song ‘Blood‘ while onstage at the Soundwave Festival in Australia earlier this month. While Down Under, singer Maria Brink also shared key details about the material that the band has written for the new platter, which guitarist Chris Howorth revealed is due at the end of August.
Outspoken Smashing Pumpkins outspoken frontman Billy Corgan went on a rant about how music culture and ethos have been negatively affected by shows like ‘American Idol‘ and ‘X Factor‘ at a SXSW panel on March 13. Despite his distaste for such programs, the frontman said that he would certainly take a gig as a judge on one of those very shows if offered.
We already knew that Slash was working on a song with ex-Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler, since he tweeted about the collaboration the other night. Now, full details about Adler’s new project have surfaced. The skins smasher’s new project is simply named Adler and the power trio features the drummer alongside singer Jacob Bunton (Lynam, Mars Electric) and guitarist Lonny Paul (Adler’s Appetite).
Happy birthday to Pantera and Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul, who turns 48 today. Even as he approaches the age of 50, the drummer still smashes away at the skins, using his arms and legs in ways that most men his age couldn’t even consider at this point. But he’s still got plenty of gas left in the tank.
Deftones frontman Chino Moreno is once again off the market. (Sorry, girls!) Moreno, 38, wed his longtime girlfriend Risa Mora in a ceremony in the thoroughly romantic locale of Hawaii last week. The couple swapped vows on Wednesday, March 7.
