The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Looks friggin' bad ass
The trailer for the new Metallica movie is sick! Revealed to the world online, the trailer for Through The Never 3D shows what looks like the most intense live concert-slash-story line a band has ever put together. The trailer opens up with a young looking roadie played by Dane DeHaan driving a van and blowing a stoplight only to stop in the middle of the intersection. The van is then smashed into by another vehicle and then all hell breaks loose with angry mobs, swat teams with rabid dogs and of course Metallica on stage with a ton of moving parts including huge fireballs, levitating coffins and glowing crosses. Through The Never 3D hits IMAX September 27th and then everywhere else October 4th.
Ignore the bigots
The Westboro Baptist Church is at it again … This time they protested the memorial service of the late Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman. The service in LA yesterday was pleasant, had it not been for the bigoted church rambling on about how homosexuality causes tornadoes and earthquakes. Slayer posted to their fans attending the service to just ignore the bigoted church. Hanneman died from liver complications earlier this month.
