Godsmack: "Whiskey Hangover" and Asphyx show us "Death... The Brutal Way"

Godsmack put the new song "Whiskey Hangover" online and its a decent radio rocker without too many surprises as expected.

Sully Erna still sounds the same and Tony Rombola continues to abuse the Wah pedal in a way that would make Kirk Hammett proud.



In other decent metal tune news, reformed Dutch death metal band Aspyhx released the video for "Death... The Brutal Way", which won't break any boundaries, but is worth checking out.



Oh and Loudness continue to prove they are biggest thing since Godzilla to come out of Japan in the video for "Hit the Rail".

MASSACHUSETTS TEEN TALENT SEARCH!


NATIONAL DRUNK DRIVING AWARENESS CAMPAIGN SEEKS MASSACHUSETTS TEENAGE MUSICIANS

What Becca Levy lacks in years she more than makes up for with heart. The 13-year-old Washington D.C. native has just entered her teens but has already had her fill of the drunk driving accidents that kill thousands each year.

“Did you know that every 32 minutes, a person dies is a drunk driving accident in America? When I learned this, I realized that this was something I wanted to do something about--and the best way was through music. It’s a language that all young people speak.”

With that resolve behind her, Becca could not be happier about being named National Spokesperson for the Stop Drunk Driving Now Kid’s Saving Kid’s CD Campaign. The campaign marks the first time that talented young musicians from across America will work together to us their music to raise awareness about the dangers of driving under the influence.

Becca now has her eyes (and ears) focused on Massachusetts. Her goal is simple: to find some great music and team up with the musicians to fight drunk driving in the Bay State…and beyond.




Ronald Bellanti, president of Boston-based Illumina Records and the founder of the KSK campaign says “This is another weapon in our drunk driving prevention arsenal,” said he said. “The earlier we start kids thinking about not getting behind the wheel drunk the better." And that is exactly what the Kids Saving Kids Campaign will do. The artists that appear on the CD will all be under the age of 18. That means that the music will not only be created by young artists but also geared to young listeners--the very people we need to start soaking in these messages.”


Says Bellanti “ Becca just bowled us over with her enthusiasm. She writes songs well beyond her years. We feel very lucky to have found all this great talent and talent. The fact that this energy is packed into such a young person is just amazing.


Here’s how it will work:
A total of 30 artists will appear on a digitally distributed CD, and the music of these talented young people will be available for free downloading by anyone in America. When people visit the page to hear the music, they will see a host of messages--designed by high school and college students--about the brutal costs of drunk driving and prevention messages.



The uniqueness of this opportunity is not lost on the artists. “What better way to use my music than to save other kids' lives? Drunk driving affects everyone regardless of his or her age. I hope you will join me in this fight. Together we can all make a difference,” Becca said.


To submit your music for consideration you must submit a MP3 or a WAV file of ONE of your songs. Also include your age, hometown, and YOUR PARENTS’ contact information. You can submit your music at: ksksubmit@stopddnow.com

I read the previous post, although I don't see the big connection with the original post. However, I have to say that we, as the teenagers, should help this activity to get the purpose of kids saving kids. There is no denying that this activity is really meaningful. By the way, the music at Becca Levy's website is also great, I love it!
