Converge / Mutoid Man Drummer Ben Koller Cleared to Resume Drumming After Elbow Surgery

March 18, 2019 // 0 Comments

Last December, revered drummer Ben Koller (Converge, Mutoid Man, All Pigs Must Die), broke his elbow in “a freak accident” which required immediate surgery, sidelining him from both his lifelong passion and primary source of income. The metal community graciously chipped in with a $33,000 crowd-funding campaign for their beat-bashing hero while Chris Maggio (Wear Your Wounds, ex-Trap Them, etc.) sat in for his recovering compadre on Mutoid Man’s European/UK tour with Mastodon and Kvelertak. Koller had initially hoped to participate in Converge’s February tour of Japan, and while that didn’t happen — it was a [read on]

Metallica & San Francisco Symphony Present S&M2: 20th Anniversary Concert

March 18, 2019 // 0 Comments

In 1999, when Metallica did the first S&M with with The San Francisco Symphony and late composer/conductor by Michael Kamen (Die Hard, X-Men), the idea of a metal band playing with a symphony orchestra seemed pretty novel.

And do it again they shall, according to this press release: “In celebration of the historic grand opening of the Chase Center—the new 18,064-seat arena in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood—two preeminent musical forces of the Bay Area will join [read on]
