CANTO: Fear Factory, Rammstein, Emmure, and Iwrestledabearonce (for some reason)


I got in trouble at work today for doing something absolutely awesome. Such is the world we live in. Let’s see what’s going on…

“Ein Bier… bitte.”

Canto: Phil Rudd pleads guilty, GWAR-B-Q lineup announcement and more

acdc phil rudd highway to hell

Late with these tonight—just that kind of day at the office. Won’t waste any time: here’s what we’ve got for Quickies today:

  • Former AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd pleaded guilty to some of the bizarre criminal charges against him—including possession of marijuana and cocaine, and one count of threatening to kill. Safe to say Chris Slade’s probably a good bet to be behind the skins for the foreseeable future.
  • The first wave of bands for this year’s GWAR-B-Q has been announced. Included among the initial few acts? Down, Goatwhore and The Descendents, to name just a few. This might be fun!
  • Speaking of lineup announcements: in a move that is just too perfect for words, Emmure have been confirmed for this year’s Gathering of the Juggalos. This will definitely not be fun!
  • Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett apparently lost his iPhone containing something like 250 different riff ideas. He estimates that he can remember about eight of them. Or, you know, three percent. The lesson here, kids? Back your shit up.
  • Finally, Paradise Lost released a lyric video for the first single from their upcoming album. Here’s “No Hope in Sight” for your listening pleasure:

Nice. The new album, The Plague Within, drops on June 2 via Century Media. Anyway, that’ll do it for us tonight. Check back tomorrow for more!

Keep it heavy,

Quickies: More bands for MDF, Rob Zombie’s video game trailer and more

Friday at last. Corey’s officially off to Germany which means you’ll all be getting cozy with me exclusively over the next couple of weeks. Maybe some special guests on the podcast if you play your cards right. Anyway, it’s time for Quickies–here’s what we missed in the world of metal today:

Setting aside the fact that it’s the Gathering of the Juggalos–you all know how Corey and I feel about that–I really can’t take more than 30-45 seconds of this thing. It’s cool and all, but it makes Cloverfield look like it was shot with a steady camera. Anyway, that’ll do it for Quickies–check back tomorrow for Episode 15 of the podcast!

Sunday Side-Splitter: “American Juggalo”

‘Morning, everyone. With a few hours until we head back to the Edison Lot for Day 2 at Maryland Deathfest, I wanted to get a quick Side-Splitter in, since the weekend’s events have forced us to throw aside so much of our regularly scheduled content. And what a quick Side-Splitter this is. We’re going to take you back to around the same time last year, when during our MDF rest-day, we came across a short film called American Juggalo:

I know you’re probably questioning our inclusion of a documentary on the Gathering of the Juggalos here, but with Cannibal Corpse now officially added into the mix for this year’s festival, all bets are off. Plus, you are denying yourself some SERIOUS laughs if you don’t watch this thing.

My personal favorite? This guy, whose serves up easily the choice quote of this 23-minute goldmine:

“I cook like a motherfucker. I wanna find a skinny-ass little bitch and make her fat, and then we can lose weight together, and we’ll bond.”

There’s much, much more to marvel at (if “marvel” is really the right word here) in American Juggalo, so I won’t take up any more of your time. Watch it, and get ready to laugh your asses off. Hangover? Cured.
