Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson announce “Twins of Evil” tour

Posted by jessepac on Thursday, July 12, 2012 at 11:09 PM (PST)

marilyn-manson-rob-zombie-tourIt what seems like such an obvious idea, Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson will be trekking across America and most of Europe during their “Twins of Evil” tour. These two behemoths of modern metal, bringing a combined 50 years of performing to their fans, are teaming up to give what Zombie is calling “the ultimate abomination.” Rob Zombie’s guitars and drums are now played live by John5 and Ginger Fish, former Manson bandmates, which should prove to be potentially interesting.

“Finally! Why did the most obvious tour take so long to happen? Who knows? Who cares? It’s happening now,” stated Zombie. “If good taste is the chief enemy of great art, then we should be able to fill the Louvre with this fucking tour.”

Even stranger, the DJ-alter ego of Korn frontman Johnathan Davis is opening on select dates of this tour. Dubbed J Devil, Davis calls himself the “anti-christ of EDM.”

“The ‘Nothing Left For Me’ video is the first video that we have ever done that truly captures the energy of the band and emotion behind the song. The video ends in a very dark place that really represents the lyrical content of the song.”

Click here to check out the album.

Vocalist Burton C. Bell has recently commented on the record’s concept:

“The protagonist (The Industrialist) is the incarnation of all industries in the form of an automaton. The mechanical, technological, and scientific advances through the industrial age led to the creation of The Industrialist. In the story, the automaton becomes sentient as it collects memories with each passing day. Through observation and learning, it gains the will to exist. What was meant to help man, will eventually be man’s demise.”

Free Download: Mnemic – “I’ve Been You”

Posted by SeanB on Tuesday, May 22, 2012 at 8:01 AM (PST)

Danish modern metal outfit Mnemic are offering a free download of the song “I’ve Been You” from their upcoming album Mnemesis.  The album will be available June 8, 2012 via Nuclear Blast.

You can find the download at this location.

Guitarist Mircea Gabriel Eftemie commented about the song:

“This is the first single of the new album and at the same time one of the most accessible songs on it — it’s simple, easy to digest and just melodic. If you thought you were about to listen to something technical, weird and crazy — or supposedly djenty, which we are not — you were wrong. You would have had to listen to the other songs, ’cause they might be like that — who knows? Maybe you should get the album once it’s out, and let us know what you think. You can always tell us if it sucks or rules on our Facebook page!”

Prong adds Crowbar and Cradle of Filth bassists to tour

Posted by jessepac on Thursday, May 17, 2012 at 1:50 PM (PST)

Prong is currently in the midst of a short UK and European tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of their landmark Beg To Differ album.  Joining mainman Tommy Victor and drummer Alexei Rodriguez are bass players Matt Brunson of Crowbar and former Cradle of Filth bassist Dave Pybus.

Tommy Victor explained the presence of not one but two well know bassists.

“Since Tony Campos (who has been touring with the band and played on Carved Into Stone) is touring with Soulfly, we’ve had to tour with other bass players. Everyone who has toured with us so far has been fantastic and brought their own personal style to Prong. Phil Zeller from Toxic Holocaust did the Crowbar tour. Jason Rapesi who has played with Stone Sour did a few shows with us before that. We were heading to Europe and the guy we had couldn’t do it in the eleventh hour. Rather than cancel, our friend Matt Brunson from Crowbar stepped in and learned the entire Beg To Differ album in a day and a half! Then we found out that Dave Pybus who has played with Cradle of Filth, was going to be the tech on the tour. As it turned out, Dave is a massive PRONG fan! He learned some of the other songs and has been joining Alexei and I onstage every night. Now we have two great bass players each night! This tour has been a blast!”

Prong will resume tearing up the road in the US this July for a string of shows with the legendary Maryland Rockers Clutch.

Fear Factory announces new drummer

Posted by tyrusrunyan on Friday, April 20, 2012 at 10:47 AM (PST)

Fear Factory has confirmed that Mike Heller has replaced drummer Gene Hoglan who had stepped down due to “conflicting obligations.” It would appear that Dino Cazares enlisted the help of Sick Drummer Magazine to help find a replacement as is evidenced in the following article which was posted on their site:

Due to conflicting obligations, Gene Hoglan recently had to step down from the Fear Factory throne, leaving it open for replacement. Dino Cazares came to us a while ago and asked if Sick Drummer Magazine could help the band find the ideal guy, and we were more than happy to make several suggestions, some of which actually flew out and auditioned in person. There were many amazing players auditioned in person and via video submission, but it had to unfortunately come down to only one guy.

Dino, Burton C. Bell and Matt DeVries want to personally thank each and every guy who spent time learning the songs and to let you know this was one of the hardest decicions they have ever had to make, but in the end… Mike Heller was just the best fit for Fear Factory moving forward. Mike’s abilities on the kit, transcribing notation, his feel, power and precision, are some of the best they have ever seen and they are very excited to welcome him to the Fear Factory camp.

Here is what Mike Heller had to say about joining the band: “It is an incredible honor to be chosen as the new drummer for Fear Factory! It’s something I never would have dreamt of as a kid listening to “Soul of A New Machine” and “Demanufacture” over and over again in middle school. It’s also an incredible honor to be following in the footsteps of two of the most amazing and influential drummers in metal drumming history. I hope to continue their legacy, creating some of the most forward-thinking and innovative music available today.”

You may know Mike Heller for his work with Malignancy or more recently, System Divide. Regardless of what you know, Mike is one of the most talented drummers we know, as well as one of the best drum teachers in the industry. Mike himself studied at The Collective School of Music in NYC and has since instructed countless industry professionals and worked with them (on and off tour) to improve their technique, overcome muscle issues, gain control and a myriad of other characteristics of being a pro drummer. He is a super nice guy and an avid collector of drum gear! Aside from his regular playing, we can honestly say he is the most talented linear player we’ve ever seen and want to say congratulations and good luck!
