Horns Up Background

 

Well. Here we are again. Preparing ourselves for yet another Monday. As part of that preparation, let’s review this past week and take a look at some posts and highlights from the week that was…

There you have it. All good stuff worth checking out again. Or for the first time, I suppose.

The Horns Up Podcast: Episode 42 (March 6, 2015)

It’s time for Episode 42 of The Horns Up Podcast, your weekly catch-up on all things metal!

This week, the guys ponder their existence in a world in which a Kid Rock album debuts at No. 2. In 2015. Because honestly, what the hell kind of world is THAT? Plus, new albums from Leviathan, Sannhet, Helrunar and A Forest of Stars, some Detroit and Cleveland jokes, and a discussion of Dan’s stupid face!

All that and much, much more in Episode 42, so check it out!

Quickies: Century Media news, Lars Ulrich can’t market for sh*t, and more!

Quickies time! Corey’s in Boston today, so you get me instead. Woo-hoo! Here’s what we missed in the metal world today:

  • MetalSucks has an interesting exclusive on the possible Century Media Records sale. The guys spoke with Century Media founder Robert Kampf to clarify developments around the label’s rumored major-label acquisition. Definitely worth a read.
  • Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has followed Napalm Death vocalist Barney Greenway’s lead and written a letter to Indonesian president Joko Widodo, urging him to spare the lives of two men arrested for drug smuggling in the country. This isn’t sarcasm, but I’m genuinely wondering what the tug-of-war in Widodo’s head looks like right now.
  • This week’s album sales numbers are out over at Metal Insider and goddammit, Kid Rock is not only still a thing but also sold 136,000+ of his new album. You win, universe. You win. Oh well, at least there’s Torche.
  • Lars Ulrich claims that one of the songs Metallica has recorded for their as-yet-untitled, as-yet-producer-less new album is “not so bad.” That’s exactly the kind of positive marketing you want in a dying music industry when following up the worst album of your career. Good job, Lars!
  • And finally…Rob Scallon is awesome. Kendrick Lamar is awesome. Together, they’re, well…awesome! Here’s the former’s latest—an instrumental guitar medley of Kendrick tunes:

Pretty sure this dude can do no wrong. Which one? Either of them. Check out the rest of Rob’s videos here. Anyway, that’ll do it for me. Check back tomorrow for more!

Keep it heavy,

Quickies: New Godflesh, Kid Rock’s dildo, and more

Another late Quickies. Looks like the thread of consistency that I’d touted so highly for my solo-posting is beginning to unravel. Oh well. Here’s what we missed in metal today:

The video’s…fine, I guess. What I love, though, is Metal Injection’s suggestion in their post that we go out and buy the CD for $14.99. Sure, because we’re still in 1999. Anyway, that’ll do it. Check back tomorrow for more Horns Up stuff!
