Jonathan Davis, lead singer of Korn, just started a campaign to help combat bullying and suicide. Davis is selling a specially created t-shirt design with part of the proceeds going to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the Stomp Out Bullying organizations. You can see Davis’ Facebook post announcing the launch of the campaign below and if you want to get a shirt of your own you can do so here!
Hey guys, I'm launching a 2 week T-Shirt brand campaign with Merchful today to help those that are suffering from…
Motionless In White are on the End Is Here tour with Falling In Reverse. On Friday last week they were in Arizona where they dropped a cover of System Of A Down’s Chop Suey. I think they did a great job of keeping with the tone of the original, take a listen, what do you think?
The Maida Vale studios in London have played host to some great short sessions with a ton of bands over the decades. Just recently we got two, Metallica and Korn! Check these live versions and interviews recorded at the Maida Vale studios below.
Breaking Benjamin dropped a new video today for their latest single Never Again. The video is about three people who find some weird ass drug, lose their minds as they age rapidly and then disintegrate. Check it out!
This week I am featuring a covers request from Shawn Rock. Iced Earth covered the tune Highwayman off their latest release Plagues Of Babylon. The track was originally released by singer Jimmy Webb but was also covered by Glen Campbell and then most famously by the supergroup The Highwaymen, which included Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, and Johnny Cash. One of the more interesting aspects of the song is that on the Iced Earth and The Highwaymen version’s are that there are four different lead singers for the four distinct narratives in the song. On the Iced Earth track the singers are the two from Iced Earth, Stu Block and Jon Schaffer as well as Volbeat’s lead singer Michael Poulsen and Symphony X’s lead singer Russell Allen. I’ve included The Highwaymen’s version here below as well just so that you can hear the contrast in the two different approaches. Let’s get to it, krank it up and enjoy!
Starset just dropped a new tune off their upcoming album Vessels. You can check out the song, Ricochet, and the 360 degree video that the band made for it. I was going to remind you that tickets were almost sold out for the Starset show at the Marquis Theater on the 23rd but it looks like I am too late because the show is already sold out!
Last month Theory Of A Deadman released a single and video for their cover of the classic Hallelujah. At first I thought the video was going to take a weird John Wick turn, which doesn’t really work with the flow of the song, but it didn’t, spoiler alert. Check it out!
