The latest video from Godsmack is available online. The band released the performance based-video of the title tune of their new album 1000hp that also features some old school footage of the band in their early days. It’s a trip through memory lane for Godsmack fans that have been following the boys from Boston since they took to the rock scene back in 1995. The new album is out now.

If you’ve been itching to see Tool drummer Danny Carey perform on stage again, your time has come, but Danny won’t be slapping skins for Tool songs. Instead, he’s been tapped by Primus to take to the stage in place of Tim “Herb” Alexander. The three shows Danny will play will be at Riot Fest in Chicago and Denver, plus an additional show in Chicago. The temporary replacement is a way to let Alexander continue to recover and heart surgery. Primus front man Les Claypool said that Danny is “the mighty redwood tree of percussion, towering over his kit like a golden haired noble sequoia.” Danny comes in at 6-foot-five.
Slash may have plenty of experience writing music for rock bands, having done so successfully for decades, but what about writing music for a haunted house? The shredder will compose music for a 3D maze at Universal Studios Hollywood. The maze is called “Halloween Horror Nights” and is themed as an aging ice cream factory run by a clown with deranged children who look to turn visitors into high protein frozen treats. Slash says he’ll be first in line at the opening September 19th.
