Video of FFDP with New Singer!

Video of FFDP with New Singer!

About a week ago, we heard that Five Finger Death Punch would finish their tour fronted by Phil Labonte of All That Remains. Well yesterday we got a video of the band of the band fronted by yet another singer, Austin Dickinson of As Lions. Now you may not know As Lions, but you'll definitely know Austin as the son of rock legend and Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson.

The video is from FFDP's show in Huntington. The rest of the vocals were handled by Labonte, but Dickinson stepped on stage with Death Punch guitarist Jason Hook for this acoustic medley. Check out the video below!



Now if we're being honest here, I'm a big fan of Austin Dickinson's voice and the music that As Lions puts out, BUT while I appreciate what he's going for here, his voice definitely just doesn't fit.

FFDP Will Finish Tour with All That Remains Singer

FFDP Will Finish Tour with All That Remains Singer

A few days ago, Ivan Moody of Five Finger Death Punch had a bit of a meltdown on stage. The show in Worcester had to be cut short after just eight songs due to the singers lack to continue. It is still relatively unclear as to what exactly caused Moody's meltdown, but it is obvious that he was in no shape to perform.

Well yesterday the band announced that they will finish the rest of the shows on their tour with Phil Labonte of All That Remains. Labonte said yesterday, "I got their six and stepped up right away. I'm honored to be able to help Five Finger Death Punch to finish their tour and give Ivan a chance to take care of himself." Labonte acted in a similar fashion back in 2010 when he filled in as the frontman for Killswitch Engage.

There's no real update on what exactly is going on with Ivan Moody, but my thoughts are with him and I hope he can pick himself up soon! And big ups to Phil Labonte for being not only an awesome musician, but a killer person as well!

Nickelback is Canada's New Punishment

Nickelback is Canada's New Punishment

CBS News recently reported that Police in Canada are using Nickelback as a punishment for drunk driving. Turns out that if you're caught driving drunk in the Kensington area, not only will you get arrested, the popo will blare Silver Side Up for you the whole way to the station! Now I will leave my thoughts and statements on Nickelback as a band out of this, but this whole story is absolutely hysterical. Not just because actual police officers are actually threatening people with an actual Nickelback CD, but because of how many drunk college kids are going to yell "LOOK AT THIS PHOTOGRAPH" in the back of a cop car while they're home for Christmas break! I can't make this stuff up guys, I promise this is real, you can click that CBS news link up there to see it for yourself. And seriously, don't drive drunk. It's not cool, and you'll have to listen to Nickelback.

Deep Purple and Nirvana Are Being Added to the Grammy HOF

Deep Purple and Nirvana Are Being Added to the Grammy HOF

Each year since 1973, a committee has come together to select songs for the Grammy Hall of Fame. These songs are selected because they are considered to be of historical significance. Songs, like in most Hall of Fame scenarios, must be at least 25 years old to be considered. The Grammy HOF currently houses songs such as "All Along The Watchtower" from The Jimi Hendrix Experience, "Free Bird" from Lynyrd Skynyrd, Pink Floyd's entire "Dark Side of the Moon" album, and a collection of Beethoven recordings. Well as of yesterday, Deep Purple's "Smoke on the Water" and Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" will both be added. The songs will be the first inductions for both groups and will be officially be recognized at the Grammy Awards on February 12th. You can read more of this years inductees HERE.

Maybe New Slipknot Music?

Maybe New Slipknot Music?

So, there is talk, and so far just talk, about a new Slipknot album. Yes the follow up to ".5: The Gray Chapter" may finally be on the way! The talk has come from percussionist, Clown, and Guitarist Jim Root. Clown told Rolling Stone that he plans to sit down with Root to start writing new music as early as February. This will be a bit of a change for Clown, as he has been busy directing movies for the better part of the year. 

Clown and Root's announcement comes not long after we got some details from Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor. He said during the Gray Chapter tour that the band would take a few years off to do their own things after the tour, but that the next album could be a double concept album. Taylor tied up his statement by measuring his goals to that of Pink Floyd's The Wall or Prince's Purple Rain with an album and a movie.

Well, it's been a few years, Corey Taylor has collaborated with seemingly every band on the planet recently, and one of their members is now a feature film director, so new music from Slipknot could be right around the corner!

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?
