June 15, 2017

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

    • Leading off, Septicflesh have announced their new album, Codex Omega, which will drop September 1 via Prosthetic Records. You can check out the new single, “Dante’s Inferno,” here.

CANTO: Kirk Hammett loses friends, Lita Ford shares secrets, and more

“Willingly guided into heresy. Beneath the surface, stark emptiness. And you’d pity my conviction, whereas I thought of myself as a leader.”

  • The doctor involved with the death of Slipknot‘s late bassist, Paul Gray, is heading to supreme court. A wrongful death suit has been filed against him.
  • Lita Ford‘s new book, Living Like A Runaway, will be available next week. In it, she discusses abuse issues within her relationship with Toni Iommi. Allegations at this point, but we will see how it develops.
  • Kirk Hammett has managed to piss off just about everyone. In a recent interview with Music Radar, he may have made the claim that he is the first guitarist to ever break into the pedal line. Which, well, yeah no.
  • Lots of serious stuff, so let’s lighten the situation up a bit. Any interest in a Gene Simmons mask? An authentic(?) version of The Demon can be all yours… for a slim grand.
  • SIG:AR:TYR are back! It’s been six years since they last released new music. Check out “Vinland” below.

Quickies: Chris Adler, WWE, Tuska Open Air, and a New Video from KEN Mode

Hello, everyone! What a great day it is. Ok not really. It’s still Monday. But there have been worse Mondays. What have we missed over the weekend?

I kinda like the mostly-spoken lyrics these guys use. It works for their sound. Anyway, that’s a wrap for today.

Quickies: At the Gates has a release date, Primus has a contingency drummer, and more

What’s this? A nice, on-time (even early!) edition of Quickies for a change? Surely you jest! Nope, we don’t. Let’s take a look back at what we missed in the metal world today:

That’ll do it for tonight. Check back tomorrow!

Quickies: KISS loves $$$, Alice Cooper loves…cheeseburgers?

It’s a bit late in the day, so I’ll just say: hey, it’s Quickies time! Here’s all the shit we missed today:

That’ll do it for today! Check back tomorrow for more!
