Although Metal Month is technically done, we still reap a few final fruits of it. To promote the release of Toontrack’s Metal Beats Midi software, here’s a Q&A with the man behind all of the beats and fills of that software, Soilwork’s Dirk Verbeuren. Where do you draw most inspiration for your drum parts in Soilwork, from other metal drummers or […]

Kvelertak live is generally awesome, but add in the band performing on the roof of the Sentrum Scene in Oslo for the P3 Guld Awards and it's a whole different ball game. Everything about this video is pure rock-and-fucking-roll, bar none. Turn it up to 11 and go nuts!

In a bit of a surprise, Periphery announced today that they have a new EP coming next month called Clear and it's not quite an EP, not quite a full-length, so what is it? According to guitarist Jake Bowen: "Clear is an experiment to explore all of the different writing styles in the band. It's […]

Bands seem like an easy target for a robbery. It's easy to figure out if a band's vehicle is parked outside a venue, because it's the one with a trailer. What's weird is when a band gets robbed on a day off. That's exactly what happened to Norma Jean. The band was enjoying a day […]
Whitechapel have been hard at work cooking up their fifth album, which it seems to be safe to assume will be out sometime in 2014. They've even issued a teaser about a month back with some new jams, but this time it's different! This time we have vocals! The band took to their Instagram account later […]

Back on November 11, Mastodon announced they'd be working with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Rush, Ghost, Foo Fighters) for their upcoming record without saying when they'd be in the studio. Guess what? As you're reading this, the band is currently in the studio. On Saturday, Metal Hammer gave guitarist for the group Bill Kelliher a call to see what was […]
The last two months of the year are usually pretty sparse when it comes to the amount and quality of heavy metal releases. One would think the holiday season would be jammed with good albums to capitalize on the extra spending money metalheads have thanks to Christmakwanzanzakkah, but that's rarely the case. So it's a […]
Okay seriously, Tom Araya from Slayer is the coolest guy ever and KidsInterviewBands.com is the best idea for a website since MetalInjection.net (which is hard to top, let me tell you). I love how chilled out Araya is during the interview and what a sense of humor the guy has. You're gonna laugh partially because […]

We've been to both last year's and this year's Orion Music and More festival curated by Metallica. I went the first year, and it was great. Frank went this year in Detroit and also enjoyed himself. But it looks like the band is putting the kabosh on the festival, at least for 2014. The Detroit […]

Back in August, Protest the Hero announced a tour with Architects and The Kindred for this November and December. With the tour's ending date of December 15 in sight, Architects have dropped off due to "mental and physical exhaustion." Who will replace them?

What started off as an interesting rant against just one Barenaked Ladies by Skeletonwitch bassist Evan Linger quickly evolves into the man's pure, undying hatred for radio jams circa late 1990's. Are you ready for your daily dose of hate? Linger was asked by The AV Club why he hates "One Week" by the Barenaked Ladies […]

Disfiguring the Goddess have already released five friggin' singles from his ("he" being mastermind Cameron Argon) upcoming Deprive record out December 10 via Decomp Records. So let's jam a sixth one, "Swarm King," while we're at it! What can be said about "Swarm King," or everything we've heard off Deprive, that hasn't been said up […]
Æther Realm, who are shockingly not from Finland, are probably one of the best folk-ish metal bands out there. Come get your pseudo-Finland on with their new jam "The Magician"! "The Magician" is the power/folk metal song I've been waiting for all year that didn't come from Wintersun. It's an epic jam that really gives […]
In celebration of their fifteenth birthday as a band, Chimaira announced back in November they'd be hitting the road at some point with Iwrestledabearonce, Oceano, Fit For an Autopsy and Reflections. Yesterday, "at some point" was clarified with a bunch of 2014 dates! The band made the following statement late last week about the tour […]

Like many metalheads out there, my second musical love has always been for punk and hardcore. And like many people who love punk and hardcore, SLC Punk was nothing short of an inspiration to me. So for those of you who wanted to see where the story went after that horrible day at Heroin Bob's […]
