MAYHEM  Metalheads, are you ready for festival season?

We here at MetalRiot are!

There were live performances by Butcher Babies and Huntress. Rob Zombie, along with Five Finger Death Punch were there to answer questions–and great times were had.

 is the latest musical monster from the mind of Disturbed frontman David Draiman. Draiman has been busy since Disturbed went on hiatus, among other things producing a Trivium record, but he has also managed to record some of the best material of his career with his new Industrial Metal band Device.

Device started as a one off song Draiman did with studio whiz and former Filter guitarist Geno Lenardo. The project soon transmorphed into a full fledged band with unlimited potential. Others agreed and the self-titled debut from the band now has an all star guest cameo list (including Lzzy Hale, Tom Morello, Serj Tankian and even Geezer Butler).

Interview: “Keepin’ It Real” With Emilie Autumn

Posted by JDKleinhans on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 5:40 AM (PST)

5Emilie Autumn, “she keeps it real, raw, edgy, hardcore” or so she says. But in the twenty minute “romantic chat” I had with her, I was quickly reminded of how truly humble, appreciative, and self-deprecating she is.

As I nervously fumbled with my camera and reviewed in my head the multitude of questions I had prepared, this blonde haired lithe figure dressed in a cream 1920’s style gown, knitted gloves, red and white striped stockings, and what I assume to be some incredibly comfy boots. I went from being nervous to being truly starstruck for the first time in my life and all those prepared questions melted away. You have to understand something, I have been a devout plague rat since 2006 who has been utterly disappointed in himself for never having seen Emilie Autumn live on stage. How dare I call myself a plague rat?

And there I was, not only seeing her in person for the first time, but actually being blessed with a sliver of time to be able to sit and talk with her. Thankfully for me (and for her?) she does not allow for a standard interview if you let her. In our short little chat we discussed keeping it real, magnets, going bra-less, Fight Like A Girl tour and video, The Asylum For Wayward Victorian Girls musical, erotic fan fiction, the Rate Game, The Devil’s Carnival, and more. Thankfully her tour manager is an impeccable time keeper otherwise I’m sure we could have passed the entire afternoon in a randomly “romantic chat”.

Enough talk, go and check it out right here.

Show Review: Emilie Autumn, Chicago, The Metro – February 15, 2013

Posted by JDKleinhans on Monday, February 18, 2013 at 5:09 PM (PST)


“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man woman in his her time plays many parts”

-William Shakespeare, As You Like It (Act II, Scene VII)

After exiting Chicago’s Metro this past Friday evening, this most famous of Shakespeare monologues has been bouncing around in my head ever since. Emilie Autumn – musician, writer, artist, actress, storyteller – has been haunting my thoughts and my dreams and has made me ponder those above words in combination with Oscar Wilde’s position that “Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life” (The Decay of Lying, 1889). I will abstain from going into a philosophical diatribe but that is what talking with, thinking about, seeing Emilie Autumn live on stage can instill in one’s mind and spirit.

If I have your interest and if your curious as to where I am going with the above trail of thoughts, check out the rest of my rambling reflections of this past Friday evening here.

Nine Inch Nails to release new material for greatest hits album

Posted by Metal Dude on Tuesday, December 11, 2012 at 8:33 PM (PST)

According to Rolling Stone, Nine Inch Nails founder Trent Reznor is intending to contribute at least two new songs for a greatest hits album that will arrive in 2014, likely to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the group’s 1989 multiplatinum debut album Pretty Hate Machine.

Reznor also stated that there are plans “to write music for a new album afterwards” and that “(new material is) in its gestation period”, which backs up statements made by the frontman last month relating to the likelihood of new material.

Nine Inch Nails, who went on hiatus from touring in 2009, last released the albums Ghosts I–IV and The Slip, both in 2008 independently.

Posted by SeanB on Tuesday, September 18, 2012 at 7:50 AM (PST)

Danish metal group Mnemic have just released a music video for their song “I’ve Been You.”  The song comes from their June 2012 release Mnemesis which was released by Nuclear Blast.

To check the video out for yourself click here.

Swedish director Patric Ullaeus of the Revolver Film Company AB from Gothenburg, Sweden was in charge of the video and Mnemic guitarist Mircea Gabriel Eftemie had the following to say about the video:

“Here we go, finally it’s done — the ‘I’ve Been You’ video from the ‘Mnemesis’ album, showing us five morons headbanging in a cardboard factory! We went all the way to Sweden to shoot this with our good old friend Patric, who has done 90% of our videos. This time, once again he did a fantastic job, making us look like a million bucks (starting from 50 cents, that is), and we couldn’t be more satisfied with the outcome!”
