The Chick-fil-A fast food chain has been receiving a ton of media scrutiny as of late, after declaring that they, as a company, are opposed to gay marriage. Although opposition to same-sex marriage is prevalent throughout America, Chick-fil-A Chief Operating Officer Dan Cathy created a media firestorm after a series of controversial actions. As the most prominent gay man in metal, Judas Priest vocalist Rob Halford recently addressed the issue in a new interview.
‘Hammer Smashed Face,’ ‘Force-Fed Broken Glass,’ ‘Sanded Faceless’ — these are just a few of the charming song titles that death metal legends Cannibal Corpse have used throughout their career. Having been vilified for their gore-encrusted style of brutal death metal, which is well documented in the film ‘Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey,’ Cannibal Corpse bassist and creative lynchpin Alex Webster may seem an unlikely candidate for a pleasant and mindful discussion to some, but those naysayers couldn’t be more incorrect.
Sonic Youth frontman Thurston Moore has joined forces with members of Nachtmystium, the Atlas Moth, Leviathan and Krieg to form the black metal band Twilight. Having just been signed to Century Media, Twilight plan to begin recording their debut album sometime this month.
Since the not-so-amicable split between singer Geoff Tate and the rest of Queensryche, the band recently recruited Crimson Glory vocalist Todd La Torre to front the band. Since his debut, La Torre has been accused of using Geoff Tate’s recorded vocals during live performances — an allegation which La Torre has now officially denied.
How do you know that you’re part of a subculture that most people don’t ‘get’? One clue may be that the subculture is parodied in a commercial. We do need to give credit where it’s due, however, because FedEx just premiered a pretty entertaining ad where a black metal band needs to find a way to ship their golf clubs.
Slayer have been thrash masters for over 30 years. Having released 11 studio albums, the band discovered their sound right away and have been pummeling fans ever since, so it’s no surprise that guitarist Kerry King is promising “the same record we’ve been giving them for the last 20 years.”
Although the legal process has been a slow and frustrating one for Lamb of God‘s Randy Blythe, things may be starting to look up for the vocalist. According to Czech journalist Jonathan Crane, the Czech media has been biased against Blythe from the beginning and he adds that the person shown being tossed offstage in various YouTube videos may not be the deceased fan. He also states that Blythe’s defense team has a “strong case” to protect the Lamb of God vocalist from receiving a “guilty” verdict.
Killing Joke frontman Jaz Coleman has apparently cut off contact between himself and the rest of his band after writing a bizarre Facebook post on Killing Joke’s official page. Seemingly out of nowhere, Coleman reportedly trashed upcoming tourmates, the Cult and the Mission, while announcing a sudden cancellation of their shows together. Additionally, the rest of Killing Joke have declared Jaz Coleman as ‘missing.’
Thrash legends Testament have just unveiled a new music video for ‘Native Blood’ from their upcoming album ‘Dark Roots of Earth.’ Based heavily on the struggle of Native Americans in modern America, the ‘Native Blood’ video advocates celebrating pride for Native American ancestry, while encouraging them to make their voices heard when facing oppression.
Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor recently opened up in an interview about continuing the band without beloved bassist and creative mastermind Paul Gray. In the interview, Taylor described the writing of Slipknot’s upcoming album as a healing process, although it has been admittedly difficult to record and perform without the presence of Gray.
