Top ten list
It’s no surprise that Metallica’s Master of Puppets tops the list of greatest heavy metal records of all time in a readers poll, according to Rolling Stone Magazine. The top ten list compiled from reader submissions is topped by Metallica who have four mentions. That’s followed by Black Sabbath’s Paranoid. Sabbath has two albums on the top ten. Other notables include Iron Maiden, Led Zeppelin and Guns ‘N Roses.
Speaking of heavy metal, a weekend show in upstate New York is getting a bad rap by locals and there’s an effort to shut it down. Titled “Redneck Hellfest III,” the show is being put on by the Heavy Metal Mafia—a bunch of unrecognized metal bands. Apparently the organizers were kicked out of one venue and are scheduling the event in another venue but locals are going to court today to get an injunction to stop the weekend show from happening. The festival is billed as having overnight camping and on-site tattoos. Locals say the organizers don’t have a special use permit.
Sevendust has been busy in the studio, and the videos show it! Following the trend of other bands posting candid videos showing the behind the scenes studio work, Sevendust has posted another in a series of videos. The band’s ninth studio album is expected out sometime in early 2013.
