New Sabbath tune
The boys from Black Sabbath are airing their new material while performing on stage. While playing in Australia, the band fronted by Ozzy with other original members Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler with Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk performed the tune “Methademic.” And, incase you were wondering, there is fan shot footage from way back in the audience. Sabbath is touring the world in support of their forthcoming album 13. They recently just released details about their North American tour which includes a stop in Tinley Park August 16th. The new album 13 comes out June 11th. Watch "Methademic" below or at this link.

No new 'tallica 'till at least 2015
We at least have a better idea of when to expect new Metallica. During a stop in South Africa at Channel24, drummer Lars says he’d be surprised if a new album came out before 2015. The band is on the verge of releasing their 3D movie Through The Never on IMAX screens for a full week beginning September 27th. Then it will make it’s way through theaters across the country.
Adding to the lineup
Gigantour, the tour that is fronted by Megadeth, keeps getting bigger. Shortly after announcing that Device will hop on board for the cross country trek, it’s now been revealed that Hellyeah has just been added to the lineup. Meanwhile, Megadeth’s new album Super Colider is expected out June 4th. David Draiman appears on the new Megadeth album for a couple of songs, so surely he’ll appear on stage to perform those songs with the headliner of Gigantour.
