Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers Off with Rammstein – Pet Semetery

This week we feature of cover of the Ramone’s Pet Semetery from my favorite crazy fire-loving German rockers Rammstein. Rammstein played this cover quite often during their 2001 U.S. tour, this version includes some of the members of the Ramones as well as the Misfits from the bands NYC stop. I saw Rammstein on this tour at the Fillmore, as well as both of the Colorado stops of the Pledge of Alliegence tour with Slipknot, System of a Down and Mudvayne so this tune brings back a lot of kickass memories.

Ox’s Blog: I f’ing hate math, but Tool + Mastodon = cool s***

Ever heard of the Seagullmen? Neither had I, before today. But the Seagullmen is the new project with Tool drummer Danny Carey and Mastodon’s Brent Hinds. They, along with guitarist Dimitri Coats, have dropped a couple of tunes. The bands official site is down, but the tunes they released are still up right now, take a listen!

Both of the tracks rock, but The Deep-Sea Diver is f’ing epic and makes me want to move my body in ways which might get me arrested if I were in public. What do you think?
