The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Debut out soon
The long awaited debut album from some of the hottest chicks in metal is headed to stores July 9th. Butcher Babies will release the album Goliath to a very eager audience. The band released an EP a while back as a way to tease metal heads. Then they took their act on the road for several different tours, including with Marilyn Manson. After that tour with Manson, Butcher Babies took to the studio. The band, fronted by two former Playboy Playmates Heidi Shephard and Carla Harvey is also comprised with guitarist Henry Flury, bassist Jason Klein, and drummer Chris Warner.
Old school audio
It’s 30 years old, but audio has surfaced of a young Axl Rose performing with one of his first bands Rapidfire. The audio unearthed and sampled on YouTube has the G’NR front man sounding more like a baritone than the signature high pitch squeal Rose is known for. The tracks were exhumed by Rapidfire guitarist Kevin Lawrence.
Dimebag Darrel in Wax
Every little bit helps
Killswitch Engage are ready to prove they’re capable of helping others by donating proceeds from their tour kick off in Oklahoma tonight to the residents impacted by the deadly twister in Moore earlier this month. The band says proceeds from tonight’s show in Oklahoma City will go to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. They will also have special limited edition t-shirts available to buy with the 100 percent of the proceeds going to the food bank.
Immortalized in wax
Hey Pantera fans, if you’re up in Canada anytime soon you may want to book it to Rock Legends Wax Museum right around Niagara Falls. There you’ll see a wax representation of late guitarist Dimebag Darrel rockin’ out on his signature Dean guitar. You can also peruse and persue other wax figurines of Kurt Cobain, Marilyn Manson, Alice Cooper, James Hetfield and others.
