I’m stuck here in Brooklyn with a little time to kill before I head up to Saint Vitus, so I figured to myself, “why not take on today’s Quickies?” Welp, here they are. Let’s check out what we missed in the metal world today, shall we?
- Gojira drummer Mario Duplantier took to the band’s Facebook page to both thank fans for their support and reveal that the band’s begun working on a new album. Exactly what stage of “working on” they’re in remains unclear, but either way…YEAH GOJIRA! YEAH SCIENCE!
- Zakk Wylde has weighed in on the subject of a possible “Pantera” reunion, saying he’d be just “a phone call away” from filling in for Dimebag Darrell on guitar if such a thing were to come to pass. Fortunately, such a thing will not come to pass, because Vinnie Paul has sense enough to consistently ix-nay it.
- More studio news! Looks like Between the Buried and Me will be hitting the studio in January to record the follow-up to 2012’s The Parallax II: Future Sequence. I’m obviously all the pumped about this. No snark from me.
- Hey everyone! Nails released two new songs today! Which means you should stop reading this and check ’em out STAT!
- And finally, the folks at Metal Injection have compiled a playlist of their Top 10 Music Videos of the Year. Check it out below.
Live. Love. Plow. Horns Up.
