Wait, wasn’t this like… a month ago? Yes. Yes it was. But you see, while Chicago Open Air delivered it’s moments, I never felt the obligation to cover the festival in writing. It was a decent experience but not an event that will end up going down in history.

- Slipknot is hitting the road with Marilyn Manson and Of Mice And Men. Dates and venues still to be determined, cities confirmed. (I couldn’t dodge this news if I wanted to, but Sarah tipped me off first, so the credit goes that way.)
- Dayton rock band CounterFlux lost three members in an accident involving a drunk driver. Drinking and driving is not something to fuck with and the fact that this happened, when the band was in no way at fault, is absolutely heartbreaking.
- We already knew about Rammstein, but Chicago Open Air has added several additional bands that include the likes of Disturbed, Slipknot, and Carcass.
- Ghost will never fail at giving interviews. Check them out at The Grammys last night. You won’t regret it. Oh, they also won a Grammy. So good for them.
- The Black Dahlia Murder has a new music video for “Threat Level No. 3”. It reminds me of Metalocalypse, so I don’t hate it.
