**Let's jump right into it with a band we got to see last Friday at the Midland in LAMB OF GOD and they're 10th anniversary re-release of "As The Palace Burns". Anyone else's face still slightly melted from that show?
**VOLBEAT is putting out the Tour Edition CD (with bonus tracks) & Live DVD today of "Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies". This is their latest album amped up on RnR steroids.
**KC's own TECH N9NE, who just played a show last week - also - at The Midland, has teamed up with legendary rock producer Ross Robinson to release the EP "Therapy".
**CREED's SCOTT STAPP has a solo work out with "Proof of Life".
**I also just found out, yesterday, - twas a brainfart - that NIRVANA''s "In Utero" will be out on vinyl for RECORD STORE DAY's BLACK FRIDAY, on the 29th of this month. I plan on snagging it as the newly remasterd and remixed version will be as close to how it was supposed to sound when the band's original producer, STEVE ALBINI, worked on it. No where near as polished as what we got 20 years ago!

**And HATEBREED has a new lyrical video for "Dead Man Breathing" which you can peep below:
The audio quality isn't all that much, but you get the idea of what you're seeing here. Jerry Only from the Misfits singing "Hatebreeders", which is where Hatebreed got their name from, at the Starland Ballroom in New Jersey!
NOT only will Lamb of God be here on November 1st at The Midland - with Killswitch Engage, Testament & Huntress - and Randy Blythe's got a memoir coming out in 2014 about his time in a Czech Republic prison for manslaughter, of which he was fullyacquitted, BUT they're to re-release their sophmore album "As The Palaces Burn"!
A couple of stories coming out of the camp of Swedish metallers SOILWORK! Seems they're to release a deluxe version of their 2001 breakthrough album "A Predator's Portrait" on October 15th! It'll be reissued as a digipack with all new artwork & will have two unreleased live bonus tracks!
Also, vocalist, Bjorn "Speed" Strid has teamed up with Frederic Riverin, guitarist, from I, LEGION for a new project called BEAR RIVER.
