Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers Off with Slayer – In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida

It’s Wednesday, hump day, and today is the day I am going to start my new covers series here on my blog. Each Wednesday I will be featuring a kick ass band throwing down on cool, crazy, or unique covers. Let’s break then champagne on this bitch with Slayer’s cover of Iron Butterfly’s In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.

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?

Halestorm just dropped the video for their first single, Apocalyptic, off the upcoming album “Into the Wild Life”.

ANYWAY, here’s the video:

Ox’s Blog: Wayne Static Tribute Concert

Last night at the Whiskey-A-Go-Go in L.A. many of Wayne Static’s friends came out for a huge tribute concert to honor the lead singer and guitarist who passed away last year. Snot reunited for a performance and the remaining members of Static’s solo backing band played the entirety of the Static-X debut Wisconsin Death Trip. Additionally members of System of a Down, Coal Chamber and Dope were on hand. The  concert was streamed online but no copies of the full stream are available. I was able to find a few videos from someone in the crowd who was at the tribute concert last night.

Tera Wray Static talking about releasing new Wayne Static music in the future plus the tune Push It. This one gave me the chills.
