Hump Day

Though a difficult decision, it looks like the LEFT BOOB has won this fight!  Maybe next time the right boob can bounce back and take 1st place.

New Music Tuesday!!
So much coming out today where does one begin?!? 

**With NIRVANA naturally!! We see their 20th Anniversary reissue of "In Utero". Something like three discs and 70 tracks with a lost song. Clearly a "Must Have" for fans!

**Some sick vinyl is out today by TESTAMENT! Not one record but TWO! "First Strike Still Deadly" & "Live at Eindhoven '83"! Make sure you catch them with Huntress, Lamb of God & Killswitch Engage at the Midland on the first of November, The Day of the Dead! 

**MEGADETH's "Countdown to Extinction: Live" is ready for you to consume in case you missed them opening for IRON MAIDEN a little bit ago. Even if you caught them, might as well enjoy it from your home, in  your underwear, whist sipping on some frothy cold adult beverages!

**BLACK LABEL SOCIETY is, also, dropping a live DVD/CD experience with "Unblackened". Sure he's into coffee, but Zakk is still making music! 

**ALTERBRIDGE, as I've told you, has a new album dropping on the 8th of October with "Fortress" and right now LOUD WIRE has the entire album streaming in its entirety!

**Don't forget that METALLICA's "Through the Never" comes out Friday in IMAX Elusive and in theaters completely on the 4th of October. The live double-disc soundtrack drops today, as well, for it. < - Props to F'Em Up Chuck for the reminder!

Hump Day

YOUR CHOICE FOR BEST METAL ALBUM OF THE YEAR WAS:
Avenged Sevenfold's "Hail to the King"


*HOWEVER Killswitch Engage's latest "Disarm the Descent" AND Five Finger Death Punch's "The Wrong Side of Heaven & the Righteous Side of Hell" tied for second by ONE vote to A7X!

This Sounds Sick!!
What do you get when you match up George Lynch (Lynch Mob/Dokken), Doug Pinnick (King's X)  & Ray Luzier (Korn)??? The below video, which sounds amazing!!

The Story Behind Seether's Rise Above This
I figure these two videos can give you a better understanding about this song, the power of music, and how it's alright to get help if you need it! Please do. Suicide is a serious thing and shouldn't be taken lightly.



I will say this, about the music video, you can see it in Shaun's face how much the loss of his brother hurts him! How he filmed this, I do not know.

It's New Music Tuesday People!!
Handful of notable new releases for today, so let's jump right into it!!

AL JOURGENSON has said this is it! The 13th and FINAL album for MINISTRY "From Beer to Eternity" is out now. Though it initially came out on the 6th, we're talking about it today... cause it's New Music Tuesday. This was a rather bittersweet album for Al as it was written back in December of 2012 before the death of guitarist MIKE SCACCIA and according to the legendary frontman this was the "most creative session yet!". We'll see if it really is the swan song for MINISTRY. 

FREAKER'S BALL performers GEMINI SYNDROME drop their debut album today, "Lux". There's been a considerable amount of chatter in regards to these guys and we'll catch them live on October 19th when they team up with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, ESCAPE THE FATE, SOiL and the BATTLE FOR FREAKER'S BALL winner still yet to be decided. 

Other new music announcement today was that from our friends in HALESTORM who'll drop another covers EP on the 15th of October. Here's the track listing for "ReAniMate 2.0":
1 "Dissident Aggressor" by JUDAS PRIEST
2 "Get Lucky" by DAFT PUNK
3 "Shoot to Thrill" by AC/DC
4 "Hell is For Children" by PAT BENATAR 
5 "Gold Dust Woman" by FLEETWOOD MAC
6 "1996" by MARILYN MANSON

Here's what else is coming down the pike: 

NIRVANA “In Utero” 20th Anniversary Reissue September 24th
TESTAMENT “First Strike Still Deadly” & “Live @ Eindhoven ‘83” vinyl September 24th
MEGADETH “Countdown to Extinction: Live” September 24th
