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.

Cedar Point is Renaming The Dragster for the Cubs!

Cedar Point is Renaming The Dragster for the Cubs!

Yes, you read that right, Cedar point will TEMPORARILY rename the Top Thrill Dragster to honor the Chicago Cubs 2016 World Series Win. On May 6th and 7th, the coaster will be known as the Top Thrill Cubster. This is to honor the bet that Cedar Point made with Six Flags Great America/Hurricane Harbor in the winning state. You can read all the details HERE, I'm still pissed the Tribe didn't win, so I'm done writing about it. Congrats to the Cubs...I guess...

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...
