Trivium;s new record, “The Sin And The Sentence” is scheduled for release Friday. If you’re a SXM Octane listener, you already know “The Heart From Your Hate,” but I’m anxious to see the rock world’s reaction to the whole album.
I hope that’s the reaction in sales. But I’m a Trivium guy. Like a lot of metal bands with a following, some jumped off ship when Trivium went away from their early stuff a little. Still don’t think Trivium gets the love it deserves from the metal community. Maybe this album will reset that course.
We’ll always have Chester’s music in our playlists, but this “One More Light” video has gotten so fitting following his death, from the close contact with fans to the lyrics I wish we had all paid more attention to before he took his life.
“Can I help you not to hurt anymore? … Who cares if one more light goes out? Well I do.”
I’ve been searching for a new turntable – the Jensen I bought has unfortunately been a dud. But the search has led me to several review sites that rank the best out there. Audio-Technica has been an overwhelming favorite among reviewers.
Loving everything Prophets of Rage has released and the wait for the self-titled album is almost over. The Cypress Hill, Rage Against The Machine, Public Enemy combo group’s record will hit shelves Friday amidst a tour that includes Louder Than Life and Ozzfest, plus overseas dates.
If you haven’t surfed YouTube for some of their cover work, it’s worth your time.
Here are a couple. Enjoy. And get the album Friday.
The first of several new songs Marilyn Manson debuted live this summer has formally arrived, along with news of his upcoming tenth studio album. Snarling new single “We Know Where You … Live” (all caps) premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show today and is now available to stream. The release serves as notice of Manson’s forthcoming album Heaven Upside Down, which is out October 6, according to Lowe.
In response to the devastating events in Houston, TX and the surrounding area as a result of Hurricane Harvey, Victory Records will be raising money to donate with a limited edition t-shirt featuring the four bands that call Texas home: Reverend Horton Heat,Shattered Sun, Darkness Divided, and Seeker. The Texas Strong t-shirt is available for pre-order on VictoryMerch.com and will only be available for one week.
Additionally, Shattered Sun will be performing at two disaster relief shows this weekend in San Antonio, TX and Corpus Christi, TXand have shared the following message:
“Good morning our fellow Texans. After much deliberation about the shows this weekend in Corpus Christi and San Antonio we have decided to keep the shows alive. We spoke to all the bands and both venues and decided mutually to turn these shows into disaster relief shows. We simply couldn’t sit back and do nothing. I know there are plenty of people out there struggling and we must do our part to help the city and state that made us who we are today. Saturday’s show, we teamed up with The House of Rock – $10 at the door, but can knock that down to half price by bringing a few canned goods to donate. If you don’t have canned goods or a donation, a portion of your cover will be donated to those in need at this trying time. We will leave everyone with this, we definitely know that this isn’t a time for shows and metal. We almost canceled all together but we didn’t want to give up that easy. We want to help the place we all call home in any way we can, and this is the best way we know how. If you can’t make it this weekend we truly understand but for those that can, please follow our lead by lending a hand to your fellow Texans in need. Come have a good time for a good cause!”
