Metallica Back On Napster!

Metallica Back On Napster!

We've heard a lot of crazy news from the wild and wacky world of Metallica over the last few weeks. Be it Lars Ulrich revisiting the Napster Battle, the band raising donations for kids and animals in need, or Kirk Hammett just saying he "can play anything," the news has just kept flowing. Well, as of yesterday I think we got the most insane news story from the band yet. For the first time in 17 years, all of Metallica's music will be available on...wait for it... NAPSTER

I'll give you a second to close your mouth.

Yeah, that Napster. The same Napster that Metallica sued the hell out of 17 years ago. The parties have officially come to terms and the bands full catalog will be available on the streaming service soon. There is no official date on when the music will go live on Napster, but we do know that "Hardwired...To Self-Destruct" will be streamable, so it will probably be in the next few days.

Now Napster is a much different company than the college kids that Metallica sued back at the turn of the century. What started out as a peer-to-peer file sharing service has transformed in to a full paid subscription streaming service. This is due largely in part to the Napster/Rhapsody merger in 2011. While Napster hasn't reached the popularity of Spotify, they do claim to be one of the world's top 5 streaming services.

Kirk Hammett says 'I Can Play Anything'

Kirk Hammett says 'I Can Play Anything'

So you have to give it to him in some ways, If you really listen to any single from Hardwired, it's easy to tell that the whole band is at peak performance level. Well Hammett sat down with Guitar World to talk about the prep for the new album. Now, I have a lot of respect for Kirk and all the guys, but "I can play anything" sounds a little bit over confident to me. You can read more of the interview and decide for yourself right over HERE.

Ned Flanders Inspired Metal Band

Ned Flanders Inspired Metal Band

So just this morning I discovered the metal band Okilly Dokilly. Based out of Arizona, it's five guys who dress up like Ned Flanders and sing Simpsons inspired metal. The band dropped their debut album, Howdilly Doodilly, on November 11th. Check out the first single "White Wine Spritzer" below. If nothing else it's a funny concept.

Metal Coffee!!!!

Metal Coffee!!!!

​OH YEAH! What's the only thing more insane than coffee?? METAL COFFEE!

Ok, now that my excitement has died down a bit, on to the real news. Metal band Periphery has partnered with Vigilante Coffee Company to create their own line of coffee called "Flatline." The brew is in honor of the track of the same name on the bands fifth studio album Periphery III: Select Difficulty which came out in July.

Now I'm not really much of a coffee fan, I'm mostly hear to spread the word to all the coffee lovers of the world. But! I want to know if it's worth trying! So go out and get it and let me know, maybe this will be the cup that changes me forever. You can get more info on the coffee and the band's thoughts on this new venture over HERE.

Three Cheers for Good Guy Metallica!

Three Cheers for Good Guy Metallica!

So I tend to rag on Metallica a lot, be it for their not-so-great last three albums or their never ending issues with Napster. But, no matter how often I do put them on the short end of my stick, I do believe credit should be given where credit is due, and boy is it due! Metallica recently raised almost ten tons of food for kids and animals in Columbia!

Metallica played a show in Bogota, Columbia last week where the 25,000 fans in attendance were asked to donate non-perishable food items to help the native people of northern Columbia. The Challenger Foundation and Corazones Peluditos (or Furry Hearts) Handled the donations, which came in at well over nine tons and almost hit the ten ton mark according to RCN Radio

The food will go to help the Wayuú tribe in northern Columbia, where children and animals are dying weekly due to malnourishment and clean drinking water.

The Deadman is Returning

The Deadman is Returning

​We thought that we saw the last of The Undertaker after Wrestlemania 32 when he defeated Shane McMahon to go 23-1 at the biggest Pay-per-view of the year. But recently he surfaced up in Cleveland to meet the Cavs before their home opener on Tuesday, October 26th. But that's not the last time that we will see of the Deadman.  WWE announced on November 3rd on WWE.com that the Undertaker will be returning for the 900th episode of Smackdown live on the USA Network. What will happen when he steps out on the blue brand during this momentous occasion?

Make Lars Ulrich Relevant Again!

Make Lars Ulrich Relevant Again!

​Backstory: Back in 2000, some college kids decided that the world needed cheaper music, so they started Napster. That was relatively cool with pretty much everyone. Except Metallica.

That's really all the backstory you need. There was a legal battle, things got ugly, but that was 16 years ago! Now here we are and pretty much everyone has let it go except, you guessed it, Metallica. Ok, not all of Metallica, just Lars Ulrich.

Ulrich was recently interviewed by Mojo and he got all spiced up again. He basically said, like he always has, that it was never about greed or money for Metallica, and just about control. He also said that there were other artists who supported them, but they were too scared to go public. He claims everyone except Dr. Dre was "too shit fucking scared and too much of a pussy to take a step forward."

It's hard to find a full version of the interview digitally, but you can catch the bulk of it HERE thanks to Blabbermouth. All in all, it just sounds to me like Lars Ulrich is desperately trying to make himself individually relevant again, which is weird, considering Metallica is about to drop what may be the biggest album in a decade. But here we are, arguing over whether or not he's really that greedy...

Hear N Aid Reissue Still Coming!

Hear N Aid Reissue Still Coming!

About a year ago, Ronnie James Dio's wife Wendy announced that Hear N Aid would reform with a new line up to reissue "Stars" for the anniversary of the original project. "That's Awesome!" said literally the entire metal community as we all sat patiently around the camp fire waiting for the fabled release. Well here we are, over a year later, still sitting patiently with no new music and nothing more than sore asses...

Well as of yesterday, we got a little bit more information. Wendy Dio informed the world that, yes, the reissue is still coming, but it won't be for the 30 year anniversary, and instead for the 32nd in 2018. This is due, according to Wendy, predominately to legal issues with a multitude of companies. Interestingly enough, this is the same thing that delayed the release of the original track for almost a year. You can read more about the old and new issues right over HERE.

Luckily, we still have the original single (video below) to jam out to as we wait for the revamped version. Either way, I'm still incredibly excited for the new release, which is slated to come along side a remastered version of the old single, and a new documentary about the first Hear N Aid journey. So here we sit, with sore asses that are only getting sorer, patiently waiting for what may be the greatest song in the last 30ish years...
