I'm 100% sure you came here to see Chad Smith rock out with BABYMETAL, not read my ramblings about it, so here it is!
If you do want to read someone's ramblings about it, you can get the details over HERE.
Genius. Absolute genius. That's the only way that I can describe my new hero, Jaireme Barrow. Now Mr. Barrow wanted to be in the holiday spirit just like everyone else, but thanks to all the other ass clowns in Tacoma, Washington, he was having some issues. See there was something about good old Jaireme's porch that just attracted thieves and our poor hero was having his packages stolen left and right. Well this would just not stand and he made a new package to make sure no one would ever steal from him again! Check out the video below and you can read more about the Holiday Hero right over HERE!
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...
In case you were curious, the members of the band are:
Vocals - Els Prins
Guitar - Simone van Straten
Drums - Amber de Buijzer
Bass - Puck Wildshut
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.
