This from the FFAT boys Facebook:
It only took 7 years, but Fit For An Autopsy has inevitably been “Nate Johnsoned”. If you know anything about his past you know that we were left with with out a singer, at the worst possible time. So with out anymore bullshit or banter, we are happy to welcome Greg Wilburn (oblige, the devastated) to the Fit For An Autopsy team. We will be doing all the tours that have been announced, Including New England Metal and Hardcore fest and all the shows surround it. #natesfuckingoutgregsfuckingin
Glad they didn’t get derailed by this, cuz they are a killer band. Good luck, homies.

Hard rock schmoozers Pop Evil have debuted a new video via Loudwire for “Torn To Pieces”. Watch the new video HERE.

“Torn to Pieces,” their third single going top 5, was directed by long time director Johan Carlén.

The song deals with the loss of loved ones, something everyone is bound to go through. Digging up the past can be very difficult. Losing someone close to you has a healing process, and I choose to do it through this video.” – Vocalist Leigh Kakaty

Black Label Society have made their coolest video in awhile. The brand new clip for “My Dying Time” can be seen through VEVO and was directed by Justin Reich of The Antimatter Studio. While the recent “Overlord” video was hysterical, the current BLS video shows the band’s trippier, darker side to great effect. It really captures a lot of the Black Label experience that keeps fans coming back for more. The video is also notable for featuring awesome newcomer to the BLS ranks, Mr. Dario Lorina (ex-Lizzy Borden, Jani Lane band). Seriously, this line-up kills!

Check out the new video HERE.

POP EVIL, joined by legendary artist DMC of RUN-DMC, will open each ACC NETWORK telecast of the 2014 ACC men’s basketball tournament. POP EVIL‘s #1 single, “Trenches,” has been remixed by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and will be featured in the opening video montage to lead into each game.

“POP EVIL and DMC have collaborated on an impressive song that really embodies the energy and passion of the ACC Tournament,” said RAYCOM SPORTS producer DAVE BARRINGER, who created the opening sequence. “‘Trenches’ focuses on the power to control your future, which translates well into the teams fighting their way to the prestigious ACC Championship. By customizing the lyrics, POP EVIL and DMC have captured the growth and change of the ACC Tournament and the teams, from 1954 to the present.”

Click HERE to watch the collaboration. It sounds pretty 00’s but is still fired up and good for this kind of B-ball thing. And ya gotta love DMC.

Radio powerhouse POP EVIL have shot a new music video for their current single, “Torn to Pieces,” that’s quickly climbing up the charts. Directed by Swedish veteran director Johan Carlén, this will be the band’s fourth video installment from their highly successful LP, “Onyx.” Frontman Leigh Kakaty adds this heartfelt comment:

“There’s nothing more haunting & torturous to the human soul than the feeling of losing someone close to you without saying goodbye.”

The band launched a social media initiative using Instagram surrounding “Torn to Pieces” late last week. Since the song deals with the loss of Kakaty’s father, fans are encouraged to upload their own photos depicting what the song means to them. Fans have been tagging Instagram photos with #petorntopieces since its launch and the collection is ever growing. The band is overwhelmed with its success and encourage fans to visit their official site and keep it up!

POP EVIL is on their way to a yet another chart topping single with “Torn To Pieces.” The song has gone from being #1 most added to #13 on the Active Rock chart in just 5 weeks. The band has already seen a career shattering two number one singles off of their latest LP, most recently with “Deal With The Devil” and first with “Trenches.”

As can be expected from these veteran road dogs, POP EVIL just wrapped up an intense run with STONE SOUR and have headed over to Europe for their first full run off of U.S. soil with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH. We can expect to hear about more touring in the states very soon.

If you are like me then you kind of spend most days of your life waiting for news about Crowbar. Like Ice Cube once said…Today was a good day. The riff lords will release an all new full length called “Symmetry in Black” on May 27th, 2014. Their tenth studio LP, it is also the 25th anniversary since the inception of the underground institution. Seriously, if you don’t like Crowbar you are a fucking pussy. As soon as I am done typing this I am gonna go blast “Slave No More”.

Kirk weighs in with this comment:

 “We are so proud and excited about what we have accomplished with this record! The focus, determination and attitude in the band is at an all time high. We are 100% ready to get this Juggernaut rolling and never touch the breaks again. CROWBAR will not be stopped! Crowbar is my heart and soul. The music is a part of me that I am extremely proud of. It’s an amazing feeling to be putting all of my energy & focus into something that I created 25 years ago! We are extremely excited to release our 10th full length & to bring the riffs to as many people as possible on tour. See you on the road!”

“Death Will Reign” is the title track off the album, which will be released on November 5.

Bassist David Sitting had this to say about the album:

“We wanted this album to sound very natural and unpolished. There’s no crazy digital stuff. There are no fake drums. We wanted it to have the feel of our first album with the songwriting from the last one. We’ve gotten better at song structures and so forth over the years, but we wanted to recapture that old-school vibe, too.”

Album Review: Black Label Society – Unblackened

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, September 9, 2013 at 1:42 PM (PST)

If you thought you knew all about Black Label Society, you need to hear Zakk Wylde and company’s latest 2x Live release Unblackened. Recorded in high definition to an excited crowd at Club Nokia in L.A., the release features the bearded guitar warrior dropping knowledge on fools like it is easy on track after great track. You can just put this on and escape for a little while into bluesy, heavy metal biker escapism. Unblackened presents BLS classics in a new dynamic, with heavy use of acoustics and a stripped down feel, but scorching solos and intensity still in place. it is kind of like if Jar Of Flies by Alice In Chains was a halfway heavier record.

Enough cynicism. Just rock!

This post does not represent the “official” opinion of Metal Riot, just the cynical author.

So, it seems the last decade or so has seen a growing trend in music journalism to be snarky, dismissive or brief. Sure, the UK press has always been snarky. People have always ripped apart bands or movements they don’t like or think are bloated (prog) or talentless (punk). It is a treasured part of rock writing. These days it often seems like the ONLY kind of writing I see out there.

I just read an article ripping apart a pretty good song by This Or The Apocalypse, a metalcore band who actually write songs with current events in mind. While I love the website the critique was posted on and regularly read it (despite it being the most snarky of sites out there), I was kind of disgusted.

Can we please stop the cynical BS and try and make metal and hardcore grow stronger? For a few thoughts. Click HERE.
