Rival Sons Tour - February and March

Californian blues-rockers RIVAL SONS have confirmed a new US tour with gothic rockers EVANESCENCE, which is scheduled to kick off on January 13th in Clemson, South Carolina.

RIVAL SONS drummer MICHAEL MILEY comments:

"We could not be more stoked to be back out with Evanescence in January.  They truly are a fantastic band.  The last tour with them proved pretty damn successful, not to mention making some dear friends.  They're our new BFFs!  I hope the fans are ready for some more face-melting!"

Orange Goblin Song Premier

NIIIIIIIICE! A wall of distorted guitars smack you upside the head. This song just frakking rocks! Ben Wards vocals are spot on! If "Red Tide Rising" is any indication, A Eulogy For the Damned is gonna be a cracking album! Say's Ward, "Red Tide Rising' was actually the first song we wrote for the new album and the main riff was written by [guitarist] Joe [Hoare] as far back as 2008. We all knew that this would be the lead song on the album as soon as we wrote it; it felt kind of special and it set the tempo and feel for the whole record. It's one that we all had a lot of input on so it's a real band effort and definitely wasn't rushed. The ending must've been changed half a dozen times or so until we were all satisfied! It's a very typical ORANGE GOBLIN song and I'm confident that it's going to be a live favorite for many years to come. We've actually played it at the last few shows and despite no one knowing it, it got a great re…

2011 Mix Tape

2011 is drawing to a close and it's time for yet another end of the year list. This one is entitled "Mix Tape 2011". It harkens to the days of old when you'd throw together some groovy tunage, slap it on a cassette tape and give it to your friends. Would you believe Metallica, well Lars Ulrich started out trading Met music this way? Groovy, no!?  Any ways. Here is my mix tape for 2011. Most of the songs didn't come out in 2011, but they were heavily played by moi! Hope they bring you joy!

1. Rival Sons "Pressure and Time" 2. Rival Sons "Face of Light" 3. Reverend and the Makers  "Miss Brown" 4. Mars Volta "The Widow" 5. Volbeat "Fallen" 6. Relicseed "Kiss From a Rose" 7. Relicseed "Trigonometry" 8. Dave Matthews Band "Time Bomb" 9. Collapse "Scar the Silent Sky" 10. Chris Cornell "Scream" 11. RENT "Seasons of Love" 12. Bear McCreary "All Along the Wat…

Metallica 30th Anniversary Show Night #1

Hello, My name is Victoria and I'm a Metallicaholic. I eat, breath, sleep Metallica. It's a quarter century obsession of mine. I've been in the Metallica fan club since 1998. I've had my own chapter since 2001. I got it bad. So when Metallica announced that for their 30th Anniversary they were doing a clubbers only spate of shows at the Fillmore in San Francisco. I was all over it. The tickets were about $8 a nite or $19 for all 4 shows. The ONLY way to get in was to be a clubber or have a clubber take you as their +1. If you've never been to the Fillmore, you should know... it holds about 1200 people. So in 2011, you could see a Metallica show in a smallish venue for under a tenner. Life is indeed, good!

The first night Apocalyptica opened for Metallica. For me, this was the best thing ever, as I totally gobsmackingly LOVE Apocolyptica. They played an amazing set: For Whom the Bell Tolls, Master of Puppets, Fight Fire With Fire, Nothing Else Matters, I Don't C…

John Carter Trailer

Disney finally debuted the action-packed yet stock edit of an official trailer for director Andrew Stanton’s John Carter, one filled with Martian hordes in the annoyingly familiar Star Wars battle stance using what looked to be left over set pieces and props from Star Wars (the "new" 3 prequal things), sweeping desert vistas (Arizona and Cali I'm guessing) and plenty of shots of a shirtless Taylor Kitsch (not sure why) — and they've managed to pry some  licensing from Jimmy Page to use Led Zeppelin's“Kashmir.” Andrew Stanton won an Academy Award for Wall-E and Finding Nemo. He's done a LOT of animated stuff: Monsters Inc, the Toy Stories, a Bug's Life... now he gets to work with real humans! From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes John Carter — a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars).  ( OK, who writes this stuff, really?)John Carter is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose hi…
