  • The Black Dahlia Murder (along with 11 other bands), have been added to the lineup for the 2014 Download Festival in England. Luckily, none of us have to make the trip across the pond to see TBDM… they’ll be at The Intersection (Grand Rapids) on Tues. 11/26 and The Machine Shop (Flint) on Wed. 11/27! Congrats, guys!
  • Black Sabbath released their new Live DVD “Gathered In Their Masses” today. Both the DVD and Deluxe Exclusive CD+DVD are available at Best Buy. A clip from the DVD was released today from Black Sabbath… check it out below in “Streaming Now”.
  • Brian Fair (Shadows Fall) is working on another side project. Brian Tweeted “Just rocked out some demos of a new project I’ve been working on with some good friends. Details coming soon. #YupAnotherSideProject”
  • Rage Against The Machine vocalist, Tom Morello, will be featured on Bruce Springsteen’s upcoming album “High Hopes” and playing on 7 of the album’s tracks. The album is set for release on January 14th.
  • Kataklysm and Aborted will be touring North America beginning in April 2014. No dates have been announced for this leg of the tour, but I’ll keep an eye out for shows close to home!
  • Scott Ian (Anthrax) will be penning his memoir titled “I’m The Man”, scheduled to drop Fall 2014.
  • There’s a new “Rap” Metal Mixtape in the works from Ronnie Radke (Falling In Reverse). It will feature Jacoby Shaddix (Papa Roach), Danny Worsnop (Asking Alexandria), Andy Biersack (Black Veil Brides) and Craig Mabbitt (Escape The Fate). That should be… something. I guess we shall see!
