Grave Digger Will Make You A ‘Lawbreaker’

These heavy metal vets deliver a feel good music video. Why is it feel good, you ask? Well, aside from the heavy metal tunes courtesy of Grave Digger, it shows you how a band can get when they’re playing for a non-existant crowd… for like the first few seconds. Of course, leave it to the hot goth chicks to bring the party to Grave Digger! You’ll be playing “Lawbreaker” in your head when you steal all the ketchup packets and spread from In N’ Out , you rebel. *Goth chicks not included*

Ready To Give Yourself to the ‘Totenritual’?

What? Not sure? Well you will be when I tell you it’s the name of the upcoming Belphegor album! These lords of chaos announced Totenritual will spawn into the world and stir many pits on September 15 via Nuclear Blast Records. Frontman/guitarist Helmuth Lehner stated in an interview “It is the most brutally heavy offering we have consecrated thus far. The drums are precise, intense, and blasting, and very technical with loads of breaks/fills and tempo changes.”

Lehnar said about this “audial hellspawn” and continued. “The bass is like a panzer tank rumbling through the terrain. The four rhythm guitars are done and uttermost aggressive and obscure. You don’t hear guitars like that anywhere with such a low tuning. ”  *plays appropriate song.* Okay, now that that’s over with, check out their drum recording it will give you chills and make you feel funny inside.

Wednesday 13 ‘Brings’ Something New

The creeps from Transylvania 90210 are back with a new music video, a release date for their new album AND a new sound. Mr.Motherfucker and his band of ghouls not only bring a BALLSIER tone, they stay true to their signature spooktastic sound in “What The Night Brings.” Wednesday 13 will give us their Condolences on June 2 under the Nuclear Blast banner! If this just a whiff of what’s to be expected in the entire album, then I can’t wait!

RAMM……..STEIN!

So unless you’ve been living under a rock or just have no fucks to give, let me fill you in anyway. Today, yes this day, we will all have an opportunity to party like its 1998 this summer! Aside from their festival appearances in Montebello Rock Fest (June 23-24) and Jones Beach Theater (June 25), the German pyros confirmed their rumored mini tour with Korn. Stone Sour will be joining this mini reunion in Las Vegas on July 1…

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! Because Rammstein likes to fuck with us in many ways, they added two more additional dates later in the day on June 27 at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheater in Chicago,IL and a June 29 stop in Dallas,TX at Starplex Pavilion featuring Hellyeah. Rumor is that MORE dates will be announced so stay tuned but for now enjoy their performance of “Wollt Ihr Das Bett In Flammen Sehen?” from their new film Rammstein: Paris which will be available to purchase on May 19. Now if you excuse me, I will continue to rejoice and squeal in ecstasy.

UPDATE: According to the band, they have over 30 songs written… madre de dios…
