Stadium shaking head movers Linkin Park have announced they are giving away Hybrid Theory for a limited time with Google Play in thanks to fans.

Our first album, Hybrid Theory, was made with all the love, passion, and naïveté that an artist can give to their first recordings. We are humbled and grateful that it has been embraced so widely, and we still find it hard to believe it became the biggest selling rock album of the century. As a thank you to our fans, we’ve partnered with Google Play to give you Hybrid Theory for free. –Linkin Park

Deftones announce tour dates for Spring

Taking a break from watching that surprisingly funny Netflix show Love to tell you kids that Deftones have a bevvy of upcoming shows (including a SXSW Spin showcase date avec CHVRCHES). I for one am stoked to hear more of GORE, despite Deftones own guitarist not seeming as keen on it in recent comments as the rest of the band. He probably was exaggerating his displeasure at the current direction however, since for the last 4 album press cycles or whatever Stephen Carpenter has been saying he loves Meshuggah in practically every interview.

What has always made Deftones great (and why I particularly love the S/T record best) is their variety but ability to also still deliver the heavy. As long as they don’t transform into Team Sleep (which would be odd since Deftones were in full swing first) there is room for Deftones to keep their experimental and pretty side flourishing.

Anyway, these dates are sure to feature a variety of tunes for fans of different eras. Dates below.

Song of the Week: Deftones’ fluid “Prayers/Triangles” track

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Sunday, February 7, 2016 at 11:21 PM (PST)

deftones-gore-teaser-banner

Deftones have a new record on the way called Swish. Or was it Gore? Yeah, I think it is Gore.

Merch Direct has some pretty cool Tame Impala-esque pop art meets perfume bottle/high fashion fonts and Nu Snapbacks vibes going on HERE for those looking for some tasty related gear, but the best treat is the new, hard to classify single “Prayers/Triangles”. It’s a watery track almost reminiscent guitar-wise of Chino’s Palms project with former members of Isis (yes, the fucking band). It might even be my favorite track from the band since “Minerva” from the underrated sick as fuck S/T record where they really learned to temper their inner fire with patience, though there have certainly been plenty of killer songs since then to now.

But yeah, this song is what’s up. In 2016 more than ever we can find ways to collage and buck expectation, be it the sensual yet bright, tropical house infused future pop of newcomer Eriel Indigo (who is likely to be huge) , the morphic funk and street aware R&B of Lion Babe or, to stay in the metal world and not freak some of y’all out, the psychotic jazz and black metal melange of DHG or Shining, for example.

Deftones can make you feel dreamy, lifted or rabble-roused, but you always feel something, even if it is the familiar sensation of surrendering to fate and all the unknown yet electric variables that entails.

All hail the kings, crowns glistening, etc.

Metallica‘s “Lords Of Summer” has gotten the dance remix treatment and if you aren’t the type of person who’ll dismiss this kind of shit out of hand this aint half bad. Check it out HERE or listen to it when it is the official anthem of the X Games Austin 2015. We now return to our regularly scheduled broadcast of actual brutality.

Lollapalooza_2015_lineup

I just saw on Lambgoat that metal lords of summer  Metallica (Lars, I forgive you for the no bass on AJFA cuz it’s still my fave Metallica album)…ahem…are planning on co-headlining this years awesome Lollapalooza line up. Man, when I was a kid Lolla was the shit. 1996 when they last were headliners it was really controversial that a big metal band would play an “alternative” festival. This was the times when Axl had to make his arguably greatest “we’ve had our share of problems with so called Alternative bands” speech (Kurt Cobain/jukie remarks aside, Mr. Rose had some good points on being “human” otherwise) and Hetfield and co were seen by more cynical alt rockers as proto dinosaurs (which is funny and makes no sense since Metallica as well as Nirvana, Soundgarden and Melvins owe so much to the school of Black Sabbath equally. Soundgarden a bit more Led Zep, perhaps). Tangents.

I just looked up the 1996 line up for a refresher and grinned.

Wu-Tand and Rage! That was a fuckin’ team up and Republican people were like legit scared in America. It was great! And Psychotica! That band used to be HUGE in  NYC, at least. Did I see them once at Roseland? Shit, I forget. R.I.P. Joey Ramone, that’s what really matters. James, Lars, Kirk and Rob…please have one of your PR who might hopefully stumble across this article forward my suggestion that you do one of your rad Ramones covers i honor of Joey and the boys to commemorate your return. It’d be an epic Lolla win moment. Advice FREE. Memories…PRICELESS.

I’d also like to see a Tame Impala/Metallica unison version of “No Leaf Clover”. They can be called Tame Metallimpalicca. ok, I’m stoned.

Lars Ulrich says there is a lot of new Metallica music to sort through. Lars spoke to Rolling Stone HERE on progress for the proper follow-up to Death Magnetic. “We’ve got lots of songs, and we’re honing them and tweaking them. It’s pretty close,” Ulrich noted. 

In addition the band are re-releasing No Life ‘Til Leather (The Dave Mustaine debate will rage on forever) on cassette format, like the original. Don’t all old tape players eat tapes by now? I thought after a few years all tape players become tape eating monsters. Does anyone make new cassette players, oh wise Phantom Lords?

Linkin Park offer “The Hunting Party” for free on Google Play

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, December 16, 2014 at 4:47 PM (PST)

QsK3UfI

Linkin Park‘s recent The Hunting Party is by far one of their better and more bold releases (up there with Meteora for moment after attention grabbing moment). There are earmarks of every era of their sound but a willingness to push themselves on tracks like “Rebellion” (with D. Malakian from System Of A Down) or the surprisingly heavy “The Keys To The Kingdom” that opens the record with a serious punk roar and drums infused into their alt rock/nu-metal sound. This album is a lot of fun if you can get your heads out of your snobby butts for a minute and admit it rules. The percussive twists and turns alone shows their “hybrid theory” of stadium alt rock and hip hop fusion still has staying power and room to evolve. Shit, I’m also just glad I have a record in my library that has both Rakim and Page Hamilton on it.

Just in time for the holidays, the Google Play store is having a special Linkin Park sale. Get The Hunting Party FREE now for a limited time. You can also purchase other Linkin Park albums for only $1.99 each. Get your albums now at: http://bit.ly/1zt969H

TERA WRAY STATIC: RESPONSE TO THE FANS AND FRIENDS

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, November 5, 2014 at 5:37 AM (PST)

310764_168896183188244_156810504396812_350091_8111383_n

HOLLYWOOD, CA (November 4, 2014) – The following is an additional response from Tera Wray Static to friends and fans that care about Wayne, as well as posts from Wayne’s peers that are negatively speculating on his cause of death.

“Today is my husband’s birthday and instead of celebrating his 49th year of life, we are grieving his short 48 years. It has come to my attention that many have questions and opinions about the cause of the death of my husband in which I now find is necessary to further respond.

 Wayne was not taking drugs, if anything he was a drinker, and did not OD. The autopsy will be done by this weekend at the soonest, however for some of the test results it will take up to 6 months to get the actual death certificate finalized. I hope that the results I am given will have some insight, but they told me what I will receive this weekend will be deemed incomplete until all tests are back.  

We can all have opinions as to why – We all know that both Wayne and I had abused narcotics with alcohol in the past, which I am sure took a toll on his body, heart and soul. We were packing to travel on tour and were to leave that night, but it was Halloween and we decided to leave in the morning with our animals. I wish we had traveled that night then maybe had he fallen ill we could have gotten to the hospital. I will never know.

I find it disrespectful to our families and myself for negative spins that are being posted. For Wayne’s music peers to take it upon themselves to make comment about us, when they are not part of our daily lives or know us outside of tour and music, just to grab a headline to get themselves at the top of the gossip page is disgusting. This is not about you or what you feel is your expert opinion on people you have no relationship with, so shame on you – Do not act like we liked your band either. Wayne was a good soul and he is gone – That is what we do know. Please show some respect to him and his memory – We thank all that have left kind and positive messages in support of this terrible time – I am sure Wayne misses you too” …… Tera Wray Static.

R.I.P. Wayne Static

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Sunday, November 2, 2014 at 6:52 AM (PST)

orig_Wayne_Static_2

Platinum selling musician Wayne Richard Wells, better known as WAYNE STATIC, passed away at the age of 48.

WAYNE STATIC was the enigmatic former frontman and namesake of Static-X, who later forged a successful solo career. Wayne was scheduled to co-headline tours with Powerman 5000 and Drowning Pool over the next several months.

No additional information is available at this time.

Blabbermouth has a moving tribute from fellow musicians in the hard rock community here , including members of Smashing Pumpkins, Fear Factory and Lacuna Coil.

UPDATE: (this just in…)

Today is a sad day in the music industry – Front-man and founding member WAYNE STATIC of STATIC-X passed away quietly in his sleep at his home last night.

The couple was getting ready to leave for a Fall/Winter tour this morning. They were to have left the night before on Halloween, but decided they would head out early in the morning November 1st.

The couple, known for partying heavy, had left hard drugs in 2009 and had not touched them since. Static’s first solo album – Pighammer – was a tribute to his new non-drug life and hoped it would help others to get clean from hard chemical drugs.

More official information about his passing will be released in the following days. This is not a drug related incident or an O. D. Please be courteous to his family and wife and leave positive messages~

Mall, the debut feature film by Joe Hahn of Linkin Park, will appear in theaters nationwide starting this Friday, October 17th. Co-starring Vincent Donofrio (who pulls triple duty as star/producer/screenwriter), Gina Gershon (Killer Joe), Cameron Monaghan (TVs Shameless), Mall examines a group of disgruntled suburbanites who find themselves at a shopping mall in the midst of a seemingly random shooting. The film will also be made available for purchase through www.mallthemovie.com on the same day of its theatrical release via Paragon Pictures in association with Silver Lining Entertainment.

For more information regarding tickets and theater locations, visit:

www.fandango.com/mall_176152/movieoverview

As a member of the multi-platinum Grammy-winning rock band, Hahn is responsible for the beats, programming and keyboard heard in Linkin Park. He has also directed as many as 30 of the bands ground-breaking music videos, and over a dozen short films and music videos for other musical acts. Now Hahn is making his full feature directorial debut with Mall, featuring a script adapted from Eric Bogosians 2001 novel of the same name by DOnofrio, Joe Vinciguerra, and Sam Bisbee. “I find it refreshing to see this kind of point-of-view in contrast to today’s society that interacts digitally”, Hahn recently explained to Mashable. “When I read this script, it felt real and refreshing to show how ugly people can be as they hide their inner beasts after cracking their facades.”

Billboard recently premiered an exclusive teaser clip from Mall, which can be viewed here:

www.billboard.com/articles/news/6244112/linkin-park-joe-hahn-mall-exclusive-clip

Earlier this summer, Paragon Pictures, led by Evan Crooke, picked up the North American rights to Mall. As the theatrical distribution division of Osiris Entertainment , Paragon Pictures will release Mall nationwide. More information about Mall can be found through Facebook.com/MallMovie and Twitter at @MallMovie.

Hard Rock is here to stay. Regardless of the ebb and flow of record sales or the medium the music is conveyed in, Hard Rock will never truly die. It is, essentially, immortal. The essence of rock spans beyond time with a multidimensional lightning soul blast featuring the cartoon heads of all your favorite bands. So don’t freak out…But support bands and buy shit!

Metallica to release every live 2014 show on Compact Disc

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 12:27 PM (PST)

10610641_10152326862185264_7437848008033339157_nOfficial press statement:

Metallica has been extremely proud to offer virtually every show we’ve done in the past ten years as a download within days of the shows happening… sometimes even hours! Over the years we’ve been able to offer more download options adding HD audio and Apple lossless files to the mix, but we still get requests for the “old school” compact disc. To celebrate ten years of Live Metallica, we’re going to make that happen! Starting today through the end of this year, every show that we’ve played in 2014 will be released on CD! We are gonna roll out three shows at a time on Mondays.

We want to keep it simple so we’ll go in order of when the shows were played starting with Bogotá, Colombia, Quito, Ecuador and Lima, Peru from the March South American run. Next week the next three shows will be available and so on. For those of you who want it all, we’re also giving you a chance to pre-order a box set with all 27 shows included, which will ship in December. There’s that special concept of a volume discount and you’ll have a box to store all your CD’s in. CD’s will be priced at the very clever price of $19.81 a pop with the box set at $417.00 (spot the savings!) and you can place your orders at either LiveMetallica.com or in the Met Store.

And for you vinyl junkies, select shows will be released on limited edition 180-gram vinyl early next year. And once again, we here at your friendly Metallica HQ want your input as to which shows you would like to see on vinyl… YOU choose from the 27 shows we’ve played this year by voting for your favs here. We’ll take the top four that receive the most votes and press them up for you to order in early 2015. Voting will close on September 26.

Let us know what you think and look for many more releases and some cool box sets in the New Year!

They first and foremost treat press with respect and the PR team is great, plus the bands every year cover a pretty fair cross section of what heavy music is all about. This year was no exception and we sent our enthusiastic photographer Catharina Christiana to shoot the Saratoga Performing Arts Center date of the tour.

Peep exclusive pics of Korn, Islander, Wretched, Avenged Sevenfold and more! Heavy music is alive.
