Back in Black

If you have been glancing over at the CD Release List from time to time you may have noticed that there is now a release date and title for the upcoming AC/DC album! That's right, the album is called Black Ice and the first single is going to be released on August 28.

I think that they picked a great name for the album and I am looking forward to it, even if Angus is getting old and senile he still knows how to do one thing and that is rock n' roll.

Lets hope that alleged Des Moines, Iowa, show at Wells Fargo Arena comes true too!

And in other interesting news...

Phil Anselmo, of Pantera fame, has told photographer Ross Halfin he has begun writing his autobiography. It should be an interesting read for sure and I'll bet we can expect some response from Vinnie Paul when this comes out.

I am curious to see what he writes about Dimebagg.

UPDATE: My bad, the release date was actually bumped up a week. Expect it out October 21st!

Anyways, here is some good classic AC/DC with a song that you might not hear on the radio all that often... unless you are listening to The Metal Show on KRUI 89.7! This is none other than Big Gun. Watch for an appearance from Governator himself.

Oh yeah...

I also updated the CD Release section with some new albums, such as Dragonforce ha ha. Sorry I didn't mean to laugh.

I might as well put another video up too. This is the newest one from Slipknot called Psychosocial. I have never been a huge Slipknot fan, but like I said, they are the biggest thing to come out of Iowa and I support them 100% even if I don't always dig their tunes.

At least Mick throws in a guitar solo with some melody in this one!


This video came out awhile ago, really weird that's for sure, but the song (Bleed) is awesome. I guess what else would you expect from Meshuggah. It has been awhile since I put a video up though, so here you go.

New Metallica Album Cover

Check it out, the brand new cover for Metallica's upcoming album Death Magnetic. I don't think it is great, but definitely not bad either. People are already calling it the white album in the internet world.

Notice one important thing: the use of the old-school Metallica logo on the cover. Could it be a sign of good things to come?

UPDATE: Oh, and in case you didn't catch it on July 23 (yesterday) the tracklist for the album was also revealed. Here it is:

01. That Was Just Your Life
02. The End Of The Line
03. Broken, Beat & Scarred
04. The Day That Never Comes
05. All Nightmare Long
06. Cyanide
07. The Unforgiven III
08. The Judas Kiss
09. Suicide & Redemption
10. My Apocalypse

I didn't expect to see The Unforgiven III, but The Unforgiven is a Metallica classic. Lets just hope it is more like the original than The Unforgiven II (although I still like the latter, but it can't touch the original).

Lack of updates!

I know there has been a serious lack of updates due to me being busy which equates to work/partying/school. Don't worry though as before you know it The Metal Show will be back on the air at KRUI faster than Slayer plays Reign In Blood live.

That is, if the IMU (location of KRUI studios)is reopened in August due to Waterworld like status of Iowa City.

I have heard rumors of a dreaded move to a different location in residence hall (Slater?), which would suck majorly for me, as I am far enough away from campus as it is this upcoming year. Lets keep our fingers crossed that it doesn't happen!

Anyways, hopefully I will get some more updates on here. Just filling everyone in on what's up.
