The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ
Natural Born A7X
With rock music comes rock videos and we’re getting our fill this morning after Avenged Sevenfold released the video for “Shepherd of Fire.” The track is from the band’s latest album Hail to the King and shows the band driving around in a covetable with all kinds of psychological landscapes—in the vain of the Oliver Stone motion picture Natural Born Killers. The band is also shown performing the tune painted with a red light. A7X fans won’t be disappointed … though, it makes me want to go watch Natural Born Killers again.
Eyes wide Alexandria
Another rock video out this morning is Asking Alexandria’s “Killing You.” This one also seems to be based off a movie … Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes’ Wide Shut. A pretty attractive brunette is seen getting ready for a party. She ignores her mom’s call several times and then heads to a mansion where a bunch of people are masked. If you’ve seen Eyes Wide Shut, you get the gist. But the guys from Asking Alexandria take it a bit further … Caution the video gets pretty graphic with nudity and blood.
Working on new album
A message posted to Godsmack’s Facebook page shows the band in Florida where they say they’re writing their next album. The new disc, which is set for a release sometime next year, will be the follow up to their last studio album The Oracle.
Slayer front man Tom Araya is opening up about the ouster of their drummer Dave Lombardo. Araya says that the rocky relationship was made even more rocky when just before the band took to Australia for a tour. After several attempts to come to new terms, Araya says Lombardo was just not cooperative. So, they notified the drummer his services were no longer needed.
