Heavy metal/metalcore melders Trivium have announced their tenth record. The anticipated riff fest is entitled (quite awesomely) In The Court Of The Dragon and may singlehandedly make George R.R. Martin get off his ass and finish the A Song of Ice and Fire novels. Well, maybe not. Regardless, we are stoked to get more of an idea what our band of merry men will do to follow the excellent What The Dead Men Say.

The band sound more streamlined than ever but manage to pack an admirable amount of undeniable riffing and precise musicianship into this future anthem. I was especially into Alex Bent‘s rock solid drumming on this new song “Feast Of Fire”. Check out the video below.

Tracklist:
“X”
“In The Court Of The Dragon”
“Like A Sword Over Damocles”
“Feast Of Fire”
“A Crisis Of Revelation”
“The Shadow Of The Abattoir”
“No Way Back Just Through”
“Fall Into Your Hands”
“From Dawn To Decadence”
“The Phalanx”

Wow, fucking shitty week for metal. Heartbreaking news, fam. I just learned on Acey Slade’s Facebook that another great has left us for the great gig in the sky. Shit, man. This feels unreal. RIP Joey Jordison. Numb with shock.

The original drummer and a founding member of Slipknot, has died. He was 46. Nobody played like that dude and with all due respect, no one can quite replicate him.

The heavy metal artist’s family announced Jordison died in his sleep on Monday, July 26. His cause of death was not disclosed.

“We are heartbroken to share the news that Joey Jordison, prolific drummer, musician and artist passed away peacefully in his sleep on July 26th, 2021,” they wrote in a statement.

“Joey’s death has left us with empty hearts and feelings of indescribable sorrow,” Jordison’s family continued. “To those that knew Joey, understood his quick wit, his gentle personality, giant heart and his love for all things family and music.

“The family of Joey have asked that friends, fans and media understandably respect our need for privacy and peace at this incredibly difficult time. The family will hold a private funeral service and asks the media and public to respect their wishes.”

Fucking crank this now. Right fucking now. Fuck!!

David Ellefson no longer in MEGADETH after scandal

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Monday, May 24, 2021 at 12:47 PM (PST)

MEGADETH have parted ways with their most acclaimed bassist David Ellefson. Obviously there is a lot to unpack here from the moral standpoint of what happened (even if it wasn’t grooming, which depends on whose word you take at face value…edging the age of consent and lying to your wife is fucked up) to other people saying Mustaine is also likely glad to get someone else who he can pay less as well. Any way you slice it amounts to a lousy shit pile of a stain on the legacy of the remaining classic member’s bond.¬† Still, I hope if Ellefson truly does try to aspire to Christian values that David will work towards making amends and focusing on his family.

Hey there Megadeth and general thrash fanatics! Cool news today. I got to in a small way facilitate an introduction between Robert Bolger (longtime Nick Menza manager) and rocker/web designer Mark Aceves of the band ZED through my friend Lara Noel McGlynn who knew Mark. Long story short, here’s a website with a sneak preview of an upcoming Nick Menza documentary about the late, great thrash icon’s life!¬† Playing even a tiny, inconsequential part in this means a lot to me as Countdown… was very much one of the first records that got me into ‘heavier’ metal.

Screaming Butterfly Entertainment was founded by owner Holly Mollohan, who guides fans through the teaser clip.

Happy Labor Day Freakend, head bangers. I hope you have all seen Bill & Ted 3 by now and are sort of aimlessly looking for something to chase it down with, cuz I have your RDA of hard rock fun right here! Here are two fun new music videos to help you keep your fists pumping over the weekend and into the far future.

First up we head with the mastermind Mr. Corey Taylor down ‘HWY 666’ in a new animated clip! #CMFT is out Oct. 2nd and is gonna own hard rock for late 2020. This song is demon spit, burnt asphalt and pure rebellion.

And secondly we have a rad new cover by Madame Mayhem for you of the Aerosmith classic “Livin’ On The Edge”, certainly fitting for these times. I always loved Joe’s guitars in this song and the cover does it justice! Just enough sweet and snarl in perfect balance. Makes sense…Madame Mayhem is very talented and this cover song was produced and arranged by¬†Mark Hudson, who was also a songwriter on¬† the original¬†“Living On The Edge”¬†with¬†Steven Tyler¬†and¬†Joe Perry.

The video is “From The Vault” throwback footage, making of, and behind the scenes of the hustle at the beginning of MM’s rock career, a real behind the scenes take with live performance shots too! Crank it up! You can’t fake this kind of road won , rock as lived experience authenticity! And did we mention her voice rules?!

RIP Tony Costanza (Machine Head, Crisis, Crowbar, etc)

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Thursday, August 6, 2020 at 6:48 AM (PST)

This week the metal world had to sadly say goodbye to drummer Tony Costanza, age 52. Tony was in Papsmear (vocals), Machine Head (original drummer), Crisis (drums) and Crowbar (drums). Costanza died in his sleep, as confirmed by Afzaal Nasiruddeen, a former bandmate in the New York metal group Crisis and a valued friend of mine. Our hearts go out to everyone who knew Tony and please support this GoFundMe to help his loves ones with this funeral burden during a hard time.

I didn’t know how much Tony was loved the world over until I posted about his passing on Facebook yesterday.The outpouring of support over Tony’s passing yesterday, has been overwhelming and I thank everyone in our musical community from the bottom of my heart. Tony would have loved all the attention, although he only ever wanted validation and appreciation for his musical talent and lifelong commitment to heavy music. Like all of us in the underground, he loved the camaraderie and brotherhood that our scene offered. In this department, Tony excelled and was the best friend one could ever ask for. Loyal to a fault and a warrior till the end. I am proud to admit that I fought shoulder to shoulder with him, literally and metaphorically, in our struggle to be heard representing the extreme music fringe in America. Our metal, punk and hardcore underground is uniquely talented and most of us will never get the credit that we deserve in our lifetime. Tony is a shining example of this highly underrated drummer that never got the kudos, like so many great musicians I know. So In closing I will say this: the music speaks for itself and will live on no matter what anyone has to say about it. I hope you are at peace now Tony. I will miss your love, honesty and loyalty till the end of my days. See you on the other side my brother. РAfzaal

 

Check out Tony on this absolute beast of a Twisted Sister cover by Crisis RIGHT HERE.

GOJIRA release “Another World” track

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Thursday, August 6, 2020 at 5:53 AM (PST)

GOJIRA, arguably the best band in heavy music by a long shot, have released a new music video for stand alone track “Another World”. It has a classic Gojira blend of propulsive and relentless riffing patterns with hoarse melodies and a yearning for more in a big Universe. The animated video has a scientific theme and is an entertaining journey. Another grand slam from the masters.

Korn and Yelawolf cover Charlie Daniels

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at 8:40 AM (PST)

I am very very sick and so not posting much this week. Charlie Daniels believed some super dumb conservative shit later in life but “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” will always remain a bop. Here is an insane new version of it from Korn and Yelawolf at Bandcamp. Props to Korn for continuing their tradition to do oddball covers, not just metal. Seems to be for a good cause with Awakening Youth. I am too tired to read more about it right now. Ok, legit time to go throw up and tremble in weak sickly horror again. My ass sounds as flappy as Fieldy’s bass tone right now. Y’all boogie down to this now and I will hopefully see you soon.

The friends at MetalSucks are reporting that Matt Heafy has a new solo deal with Roadrunner. Makes sense. He plays his ass off doing covers and other various things all the time. More Matt!

He also has made a metal cover of the iconic “Toss A Coin To Your Witcher”! I have been praying too the Gods of Metal to have Hetfield sing this in season 2, but I will settle for Heafy! Sounds damn close anyway! Hails!

Crank this for max nerdy joy! Also, Trivium put out one of the best albums so far this year.
