Blow Out Your Speakers with Metallica’s Live Performance at Rock in Rio [VIDEO]
Rock in Rio in Brazil is underway, and the mighty Metallica killed it last night, September 19th, with a blistering show to heading the night.  They blasted through eighteen songs, with the huge stage, gigantic video screens, pyro, and everything you expect from a Metallica show! It's definitely Metallica weekend, with the Mucho Metallica fun tonight and tomorrow, as well as our preview of their n

Some Things Women in Music Are Tired Of – Stop Groping Random Strangers and More
I found this article called "9 Things Women in Music are Sick of Experiencing", and it has some valid points to it.  I see a lot of shows, and am in the middle of the floor when I can be, so you notice things.  I'm really glad that metal in particular has become less of a sausage-fest in recent years, and I encourage more women to come out to shows and have some fun with us! But some of

Justin Timberlake Goes Metal – Suit and Tie Kicks Ass in Metal Form
Justin actually does some great metal here!  Okay, not really, it's that crazy guy Andy Rehfeldt at it again.  Just don't tell Lisa Sanchez it's not real, I've got her convinced this was an awesome metal performance he did of the song. She even made the comment, "Wow, those girls in the crowd don't even know how to react to this!"

Megadeth Shred a Live Version of a New Song “Kingmaker” from Brussels [VIDEO]
The new Megadeth album Super Collider comes out on Tuesday! I've heard two songs from the album so far. The first one, "Super Collider", I wasn't over the moon about. It's a straight-forward rock song, something you might find on Risk-era Megadeth. Not horrible by any stretch of the imagination, but probably not a song that will be high on my playlist. But the second song they even let o
Soilwork and Hatchet Rocked El Paso Thursday Night at Tricky Falls!
Soilwork and Hatchet Rocked El Paso Thursday Night at Tricky Falls!
A month or so ago, I saw an event pop up on my Facebook feed for the show with Jeff Loomis and Soilwork in El Paso. They had Bonded by Blood on the bill as well, so with that lineup, I was instantly ready to go. Unfortunately, I work Thursday nights, so I was sad. Then one day (Wednesday night), Glenn asked if I could cover his show so he could take care of some personal business, and I jumped on

Cattle Decapitation’s Drummer Has Bigger Huevos Than You – Plays Concert Right After Surgery
Cattle Decapitation's drummer David McGraw is on tour with the band right now, and when they hit Berlin yesterday, he decided to forgo the usual touristy things like sight-seeing. He didn't even feel like just sleeping in or reading a book on cow revolution or the cow subjugation of the human race. Instead, he went to a German hospital and had a "gnarly abscess" removed from his armpit!
