Stream Chris Cornell’s Previously Unreleased Song “When Bad Does Good”

September 21, 2018 // 0 Comments

November 16 will be eighteen months, almost to the day, since Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell took his own life. It’s an appropriate date, then, for the release of Chris Cornell: An Artist’s Legacy, a collection of eleven previously unreleased songs curated by Cornell’s widow, Vicky. One of these tracks, “When Bad Does Good,” is now available for you to stream below. It’s a great song, its melancholy vibe only enhanced, obviously, by Cornell’s ultimate fate. It pains me to say this, but I think it’s actually much better than anything he did after the Soundgarden reunion; I’m not sure [read on]

Corey Taylor Thinks™ Knotfest Could Expand Into Something Bigger

September 21, 2018 // 0 Comments

Knotfest has been running strong every year since 2012 (with a lone year off in 2013), building itself into one of North America’s premiere metal festivals. Colombia, Mexico and Japan have also hosted the event, with Bogota playing host to this year’s sole Knotfest. Slipknot don’t even always play the thing, and fans don’t seem to mind; it’s more about the festival experience. When asked by Jamey Jasta on his podcast about any potential future plans for expanding Knotfest into something bigger, we learned that Corey Taylor thinks it’s definitely a possibility. While he didn’t directly address [read on]

Metallica’s Black Album Has Now Spent 500 Weeks on the Billboard 200

September 21, 2018 // 0 Comments

Who the hell just bought Metallica’s 1991 eponymous release? A lot of people: The Black Album still sells 5,000 copies a week, and was the first release of the Nielsen SoundScan era to sell sixteen million copies (actually, it’s now closer to seventeen million). Now, Billboard reports, the record has reached another milestone: “— Metallica, Metallica – No. 137 — Metallica’s self-titled 1991 album (often referred to as The Black Album, due to its stark, black album cover) scores its 500th nonconsecutive week on the Billboard 200 chart. It is now one of only four albums with 500 weeks or more on the tally. [read on]

@Ironmaiden on @reddit TODAS LAS INTROS DE BAJO DE IRON MAIDEN (parte 1)

September 21, 2018 // 0 Comments

TODAS LAS INTROS DE BAJO DE IRON MAIDEN (parte 1) The "every Iron Maiden Bass Intro" pretends to be a collection of all the Iron Maiden bass riffs they've realeased. It shows some of the best Iron Maiden bass riffs ever, with some iconic basslines played by Steve Harris. This is neither a top bass riff. I tried to compilate the songs where the bass has a lead role at the beginning of a song. This first part includes bass riffs from the first three albums (Iron Maiden, Killers and The Number of the Beast). Again, SUBSCRIBE IF YOU LIKED. You will encourage me to [read on]

Monuments Unveil Catchy Third Single “Mirror Image”

September 21, 2018 // 0 Comments

Third time’s a charm? Despite not being swayed one way or the other by Monuments’ first two singles from their forthcoming album (nor their career body of work as a whole), I’m feeling “Mirror Image,” their latest track release. The mid-paced grove, the relatively low quotient of djentiness, Chris Barretto’s strong vocal performance, some nifty guitar leads and, most importantly, THE SONG itself — I dig. I’ve spent a ton of time talking about this over the years, but good songwriting really trumps all; write a great hook (be it vocal, a riff, or even a unique drum beat) and you’ll usually [read on]
