Tool 3.0 (?) Have An Epic Showdown In New Video

TEE HEE! Sorry for bursting your bubble… not. But in the meantime, enjoy the new video for “The Arsonist” courtesy of Puscifer. In this video, Maynard James Keenan gets tired of our shit and our incessant whining about the Tool album that will never be and lets that aggression out. Ok, maybe things happen a little different in the video.

Where’s Serj?

System Of A Down have been radio silent for 80 years, but hope was restored when they announced European dates for 2017 a bit back (Boo!). Basisst Shavo Odadjian and drummer John Dolmayan, however, posted a jam session including lead vocalist/guitarist Daron Malakian. Though not a Serj was in sight, rumor is the guys will pack their necessities and embark on an unforgettable journey and follow the yellow brick road. Till then, we’ll have to wait and see how the search party ends and what trick they have up their sleeves.

The veteran thrashers released the lyric video for their latest single “Our Finest Hour” and it’s awesome! To say the least, this track will subdue your Overkill craving and distract you from counting down the days till their February release of their upcoming album.

The Sock Struggles Are Real With “More Humid Than Humid”

The adorable Sock Puppet Parody channel on YouTube made a Rob Zombie song in to an anthem for all the filthy socks out there with “More Humid Than Humid.” The strangest thing from this is having the words adorable and Rob Zombie together in one sentence. You’ll know what I mean when you check out the link ‘cause your salty ass can use it, and SOCK PUEPPETS ARE RAD.

 ‘Lords Of Chaos’ Will Be Burning A Church Near You? Soon… We Think.  

 The long awaited film about Norwegian Black Metal band Mayhem, titled “Lords of Chaos,” has gained momentum again. According to the entertainment site Deadline, Vice Films along with Insurgent Media, Chimney Pot and 20th Century Fox have joined forces to help spawn Jonas Akerlund’s project. Akerlund, who is the former drummer of Bathory, has an impressive videography having directed numerous music videos for bands such as Rammstein, Ozzy Osbourne, Satyricon and big, shiny pop stars such as Beyonce and Madonna. The film will star Rory Culkin (Signs, Igby Goes Down), Emory Cohen (Brooklyn), Jack Kilmer (Val Kilmer’s son), Sky Ferreira (a shiny pop star). The film will be based on Varg Vikernes’ favorite 1998 novel with the same title. No word when the film will actually start production or if it’ll be worth the wait, but till then sit by the fire and bust out those marshmallows.

The book cover to Vargs' fave book 'cause look at it!
The critically acclaimed novel is also part of Vargs’ book club.
