Riot Fest is taking over Denver this Friday through Sunday. Tune in all day Thursday to win 3-day passes! In the mean time enjoy this selection of some of the bands you’ll be rocking out to this weekend.
Willie Nelson, famed pot smoker, has his own line of marijuana products and they are now available in Colorado! So far all of the locations carrying his brand are in Denver, but it’s gotta be worth the trrrrriiip, right?
We’ve been jamming the latest from Anthrax, Monster at the End, for a few weeks on Kilo and today Anthrax threw down a new video for the tune. You can find this tune off their new album For All Kings which is in stores now and then see them live with Slayer on Rocktober 10th at the Fillmore.
At this point we might as well crown Disturbed the king of covers with all the killer tunes they have done over the years. This is no different, a live version of Metallica’s Fade To Black, that was recorded on the Music as a Weapon II tour from 2003. You might notice that the song doesn’t go as long as the original though as the band only did the first four minutes of the song. But a kick-ass four minutes it is, check it out!
On August 24th Prophets of Rage will be live streaming their show from Toronto. Get hyped for their Red Rocks show on September 7th and watch the stream here starting at 7pm. If you’re not going to get to go to the Red Rocks show then you get to see them perform for free, right here! Rock on!
Sully Erna, lead singer of Godsmack, has announced he will be releasing a new solo album, Hometown Life. The record is a follow up to his 2010 solo debut, Avalon. Hometown Life will be released on September 30th and the title track has already dropped. Take a listen!
For tonight’s cover we visit with Avatar, and catch the Nirvana tune Something In The Way, from Avatar’s 2014 album Hail The Apocalypse. The original was very stripped down and kind of haunting. Avatar gives the song a much richer treatment, and it sounds a lot different! Do you prefer the Nirvana version or Avatar version? Take a listen and let me know!
