Cool Fight Vid.

Check out the new media player released by Halford Entertainment (Rob Halford's label) which features a video of the Fight song "Into the Pit"!

Notice that you can download the video as well as two songs in MP3 format for absolutely free. Reviews about Nostradamus may be mixed, but there is a reason the album landed at #11 on the Billboard Charts. Halford knows the business and does a good job promoting his work.

Maybe someday I will get my own Nostradamus review up...

Support Iowa Metal

Slipknot, love em' or hate em', are getting ready to release their new album All Hope is Gone. This Friday for a limited time only they will be putting up the new single "All Hope is Gone" on the Roadrunner Records website.

Give it a listen and see what you think. I am not a huge Slipknot fan, but I do respect what they do and they are the biggest band to ever come out of Iowa.

Also, if you didn't notice I reformatted the right sidebars a bit. Now there is a Recent Releases section in addition to the Release Date section. That way you can see what has come out recently in case you might of missed something!

Tuesday, June 17, 2008


I initially said the Motley Crue album came out this Tuesday, June 17, but I was wrong. Saints of Los Angeles is actually coming out next Tuesday, June 24.

I am sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused for all the die-hard Crue fans out there.

This just gives you more time to take in the massive new Judas Priest album Nostradamus. Look for a full review on the blog shortly.

Act fast on buying it though, because you can get a code for a free lawn ticket to check out the Metal Masters tour (see tour section to the right of blog for more info on the date and time).

Right now I'm listening to the new Iced Earth single "I Walk Alone". It is nice and heavy. Barlow sounds just as good as ever!

Metallica Unveils Name of New Album

Metallica recently revealed the name of their new album due out in September on the Mission Metallica.

So what is the name of the new album?

Death Magnetic.

Sounds different. I kind of like it. Lets hope the guys can put out some good music and show a new generation of fans how to rock.

Oh, and don't forget the new Judas Priest and Motley Crue albums are going to be released on Tuesday! I have been eagerly waiting for the new Judas Priest CD, maybe I'll put up a review on the blog when I get a chance to fully take it in.

Now here is a brand new video from Municipal Waste for the song "Sadistic Magician" off the album The Art of Partying. The band can always be relied on for classic thrash entertainment.

Anthrax unveils new singer

The guys in Anthrax recently played two shows opening for Iron Maiden in Irvine, California, where they unveiled the new singer Phil Anselmo er... I mean Dan Nelson.

Watch the videos and you definitely get a Phil (Pantera and Down front man) vibe from the new singer. If you had to compare him to the other two singers his voice lies closer to John Bush's in the music spectrum.

His voice may add a new heavier aspect to the band, and I could see him working if Anthrax was going for a more modern sound. My only beef with the guy is that he can't match the range of Joey Belladonna on the older material. But then again, I consider Joey to be one of the better singers in thrash metal.

The current Anthrax line-up for those that haven't been keeping track is: Dan Nelson (vocals), Rob Caggiano (lead guitar), Frank Bello (bass guitar), Scott Ian (rhythm and lead guitar) and Charlie Benante (drums).

Now check out a video of Dan Nelson and the band performing the song I Am The Law from the classic album Among the Living. I picked this one to post as I actually like the heavier feel it gets with the new singer's vocals. He seems to falter a bit on some of the other songs, like Caught in a Mosh, but for the first few shows, coming from a no-name band, he is doing a damn fine job!
