Black Stone Cherry Announces Tour

Of the modern rock bands out these days, I've always thought Black Stone Cherry to be one of the best. Honestly, I'm surprised they haven't "hit" more as their sound is commercial enough to get played on regular radio. Maybe it's because they are not pop enough? Well, anyway the band is hitting the road for a tour and - what do you know - this one is actually coming to my hometown. Amazing! Here are the dates:

This Is Just Sad

Sad, but not surprising.

Montebello Rockfest Bands Announced

Here's another festival alert! Montebello Rockfest goes down June 22-25 in Montebello, Quebec, Canada. This is a big one with a lot of famous bands. Headliners include Rammstein, Queens of the Stone Age, Megadeth, Iggy Pop and many more.

Rammstein is a band I've never seen live. When I was in high school, there was a kid who sat behind me in a couple classes who was just obsessed with Rammstein. Like, he wanted to move to Germany to be closer to this band. I think they are a solid metal band for sure but I don't think I'd move around the world for them. Different strokes I guess.

Tickets for the fest are cheap - just $123 bucks. VIP packages also available too.

Rise Above Fest Bands Announced

Seether's Rise Above Fest just announced bands for the July event. This year, Korn and Shinedown will headline. This is the fifth year for the fest. I'm kind of stunned that Seether has a festival, let alone a successful one, but hell, good for them.


The Rise Above Fest is set for Saturday, July 22 and Sunday, July 23 at Darling's Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, Maine.

This Cat Is More Metal Than You

Another gem from my favorite Twitter account. Maybe someday I will get a cat. You know, when I'm more mature.


The "crud" is going around my neck of the woods. Now my husband is sick and that is very rare. He actually left work early and that never happens. I certainly hope this "crud" doesn't morph in to the flu. I'm being run ragged, waiting on him hand and foot and let's just say he's a "whiner" when ill. So it's another day I've missed the metal news. If anything good happened in the past 48 hours, just let me know in the comments. Here's hoping I don't get sick. I got the flu shot (but so did Eric)!

Rare Sebastian Bach Footage - Watch Now! 

I was so busy over the weekend I barely had any time to scroll the metal news so I'm out of the loop. Did Blabbermouth post a bunch of Metallica articles again yesterday?


Last night I couldn't sleep, tossed and turned and now I feel like garbage. So I'm at my desk, trying to get some motivation to get the week going and I stumble across this: rare Sebastian Bach footage, circa 2002. Go now, watch, watch, watch!

Do You Believe Mustaine?

Last Sunday, Megadeth won a Grammy. During the ceremony, a Metallica song played while Megadeth walked on stage. Dave Mustaine swears he "didn't notice." I just don't believe it - maybe he's taking the high road here. But we all noticed it watching at home, so there's no way he didn't pick it up while actually being in the room. Apparently he watched it back later and was stunned and then thought the house band played the "worst version of 'Master of Puppets' ever." Well, I can't disagree with that.
