The Grammys were Sunday and there are a ton of rock stars on Twitter that didn’t have too many nice things to say about the awards ceremony. Go check out the accounts of Corey Taylor who says the Grammys don’t respect Rock at all,
I'm happy for Halestorm, but sad because the Grammys don't respect our genre AT ALL. We get one category and it's not even televised.
Or Maynard’s rant … Even Adeletas Way didn’t have nice things to say. There was only one true rock/metal category that Halestorm walked away with.
Who is more brutal?
An article in Esquire talking with the Navy SEAL assassin of Osama bin Laden reveals that Metallica’s music was used just before prisoner interrogations to quote “soften up” the prisoner. But, once the band found out about this, they requested their music be removed from the procedures. In the article, the SEAL says the band Demon Hunter, on the other hand, volunteered their music for that use. Demon Hunter sent them CDs and patches. The SEAL says he wore the Demon Hunter patch on every mission, even the one that brought down bin Laden. Now, who’s more brutal?
A teaser trailer for David Draiman’s new side project has been released online. The band, named Device, features the Disturbed front man and also Geno Lenardo, the guitarist from Filter. In past statements, Draiman said the band is going to be more guitar-centered industrial metal than his previous creations. The trailer doesn’t really reveal much of the band’s sound other than a lame guitar riff with sporadic drums. Draiman is seen along with Lenardo and a drummer in a white studio with some weird trinkets injected into the frame. The new album will feature some heavy hitters, like Geezer Butler from Black Sabbath, Avenged Sevenfold’s M. Shadows, Serj Tankian, Tom Morrello and Halestorm’s Lizzy Hale. The first single Vilify hits rock radio February 19th.
