I have very, very little to say about this band because they're so f**king incredible! If you're in to death/black metal, Dutch all-female rockers Sisters of Suffocation are for you! Right now they only have an EP called "Brutal Queen" released, but their first full length is due out next year. They did just release this video for their song called "Phobophobia" and holy hell is it heavy! I think I may have a new favorite band...

If you've ever wanted to hang out with thrash metal gods Megadeth, well now is your chance! The band is hosting the "Megadeth Boot Camp" once in a lifetime experience on Dave Mustaine's private estate in Fallbrook, California. Price ranges from about $2000 to $5500, which, factoring in all the sweet things that come along with a ticket, isn't a terrible price. So if you missed out on the Uber Ranger package for Rock on the Range and you have some extra money to blow, you should consider blowing it on Megadeth. Let me also say that the "Mustaine Estate Package + Megadeth Boot Camp" ticket will get you my personal favorite selling point for the weekend, "Preferred seating to campfire stories with Megadeth."
You can get more information and make your ticket purchases over at MegadethBootCamp.com.

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.

2008's We Wish You a Metal Xmas and a Headbanging New Year is an interesting take on 12 familiar Holiday carols performed by some of rocks biggest legends like Alice Cooper, Lemmy Kilmister, Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, and Dave Grohl, to name a few. So if you can't stand to hear Bing Crosby anymore, here is an alternative. It's definitely worth checking out.

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!
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.
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.
It's from a Spanish melodic metal band called Lords of Black. Who are they you ask? Well that is the band of the new singer for Rainbow, Ronnie Romero! The cover is awesome and is a bonus track of their new band 'II.' You can really hear why this guy is the new singer for Rainbow, and there's just enough Queen to sound awesome! So, without further ado, here is Lords of Black with 'Innuendo!'
A homeless man living under the 110 Freeway in LA has built a compound, which he calls 'Paradise Lane,' consisting of a sofa, love seat and toilet. Ceola Waddell Jr., also known as 'Mr Dice,' also calls his space his 'Airbnb.' He also has what he calls a 'Mancave,' which consists of a full size bed with a zebra pattern spread. He also has a guest room that consists of twin bed, toilet and a Jacuzzi (which is a refrigerator turned on it back). You can rent out the guest room for $10 a day or $25 a week.
