Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:

    • Leading off, Anal Trump dropped its latest minute-or-so-long tirade against our Toddler-in-Chief, with all proceeds going to RAINN. And even better, as we see above, the album hit #1 on Bandcamp’s best-sellers list shortly thereafter.

Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:

    • Leading off, I’m super pumped because I’ll be seeing Oranssi Pazuzu at MDF this weekend. If you don’t have plans to go to MDF this weekend, but do live in the New York City area, you’re in luck: the band announced a show at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus. Get on it.

    • Leading off with some sad news, Chris Cornell was found dead late Wednesday evening. The former Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman was just 52 years old, and it’s hard to put into words how enormous a loss this is. Rest in peace, Chris.

Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:

    • Leading off, Morbid Angel frontman Steve Tucker has indicated that the band will not be playing any David Vincent-era songs on their upcoming tour dates. That “whoosh” you just heard was my already-limited interest in seeing them at MDF nosediving even more.
