FINALLY. It’s the end of the day on Thursday, May 22nd, meaning that–as you may somehow have avoiding seeing in the other, oh…EVERY SINGLE POST this week in which we mentioned this–it’s time for Horns Up’s annual pilgrimage to Maryland DeathFest! It should be quite a fun weekend. So much fun, in fact, that we probably won’t be able to give you a Quickies tomorrow. Or a Dump on Saturday. Which is fine because we’re not doing a proper episode this week, but rather a series of mini-episodes previewing and recapping the weekend’s events. It’ll be quite metal.
That being said, consider this your final edition of Quickies for this week, and of course, eagerly await our return on Tuesday. Because, duh. Anyway, here’s what we missed today:
- Today on an all new episode of “Bands That Suck Talking About Other Bands That Suck,” KoRn guitarist Head comes to the defense of recently-convicted ex-As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis. Because Christianity, probably.
- Testament frontman Chuck Billy is going to do some guest vocals on The Haunted’s upcoming album. Since Peter Dolving is no longer in the band, I’m going to assume that the lyrical content will concern something other than angry rants at Blabbermouth commenters.
- After rumors spread of his and the band’s impending demise, Guns ‘n’ Roses frontman Axl Rose took to Facebook to refute the claims. The image you see in this post is literally the entirety of his refutation. Good ol’ Axl.
- Phil Anselmo praised Black Label Society for their work in covering the Pantera classic, “I’m Broken,” during a recent concert, and really nails the whole Richard-Karn-lookalike aesthetic whilst doing so.
- And finally…video footage has emerged of Geoff Tate covering the Faith No More classic, “Epic,” in a recent concert for some reason. Check it out, if you have a strong stomach (segment begins at 7:33):
Die, Geoff. Just die.
Live. Love. Plow. Horns Up.
