Slayer is Getting a Comic Book!

Thrash metal God's Slayer will officially break in to the comic universe on January 25th of 2017. The comic, entitled Slayer: Repentless, will run for 3 issues under the Dark Horse Comics label. While it may not be Marvel or DC, Dark Horse is still huge in the comic book industry. Hellboy, Sin City, Buffy The Vampire Slayer? Yeah, all those guys. You can get more info on the Slayer comic right over HERE. I'll leave the talking to them, they just have a lot more information than I can condense here. You can also preorder the first issue of Slayer: Repentless from Dark Horse over HERE.

Goldberg shocks the Universe at Survivor Series

Goldberg shocks the Universe at Survivor Series

​Hyped as Fantasy Warfare, Goldberg faced off against Brock Lesnar in the Main Event at Survivor Series 2016. What should have been a great match ended up being nothing but a squash match. This is not what you would expect from a Lesnar match, where he has dominated every opponent that he has faced in recent years since coming back to WWE. The match officially lasted only 84 seconds with Goldberg hitting Lesnar with two spears than a Jackhammer before covering him for the win. This shocked everyone in attendance and watching on the WWE Network.   Did the WWE hype up this match too much for the length that it was or did the Goldberg win soften the blow?

Metallica Memories

Metallica Memories

With the release of Metallica's Hardwired...To Self-Destruct, I thought I would share a moment of my 20 year love for the band. In 1997 a friend of mine shared his copy of Master Of Puppets with me. I had heard of Metallica but never really gave them a shot. At the time I was big in to classic rock like Jimi, Zepplin, The Doors, and Kiss. Hard rock and heavy metal weren't on my radar just yet but I figured I would give them a shot. I popped in the CD and Battery started up which I thought was pretty good. Then Master Of Puppets came on... This was the song that changed everything for me. It was the most badass thing I had heard in my life. The heavy riff, James's vocals, Kirk's solo, the haunting lyrics, all combined to make this amazing song. I was a Metallica junkie from that point on. It set me on my way to becoming the metal head I am today. So in celebration of the new album, I just wanted to share the song that started it all for me.

It starts with Triumph being merciless to Cubs fans, then it becomes surreal, but it finishes well with Triumph at The Wiener's Circle.  All in all, a good watch...as long as nobody who can be offended is near.

Don't Believe Everything You Read: STP Still Has No Singer

Don't Believe Everything You Read: STP Still Has No Singer

Much of the world was shocked and heart broken when Scott Weiland passed away last December. Not long after his passing, Stone Temple Pilots began to collaborate with Linkin Park's Chester Bennington. The band ditched Bennington on good terms and began holding open auditions for a new frontman earlier this year. Early yesterday, Entertainment Tonight reported that STP had chosen Jeffery Adam Gutt as their new singer. Well a band rep shut that rumor down a few hours later when he confirmed that the band has still not chosen a lead singer. You can read more about the mix up and conflicting reports HERE. So we will wait for new info from the band, and if your one true dream in life is to sing for STP, it sounds like there's still hope for you!

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.

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?
