After the success of our DevilDriver giveaway in June, we’re inviting South Florida residents (or any able/willing to attend) to see The Black Dahlia Murder, Suicide Silence, Chelsea Grin, and Alterbeast on Monday, October 13th. If interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org with subject heading “Black Dahlia Murder,” and submit your full name matching your ID.
Even if you can’t make it, lend us a hand and share our giveaway far and wide on social media; the more popular it gets, the more we can spread this experiment nationwide and to a venue near you.
Next, co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) weighs in with a rather prickly and pessimistic insight on the longterm effects of Internet culture on the music/metal scene, specifically the downsides (and there are always downsides).
The downloading issue has been talked to death, but Mike sees some mass psychological implications at work here as well, and they do not bode well for the future. His hypothesis: due to the increased platform the Web offers to egoistic, insecure, and often talent-starved amateurs, there will never again emerge a tremendously popular, universally loved rock ’n’ roll band, much less a metal band. Listen in to hear his full thoughts on the matter.
Finally, Kevin offers a detailed review of the new self-titled album from Darkest Hour, which boasts a new rhythm section and a potentially divisive new direction in style - although Kevin puts up a passionate and justified defense on the album’s behalf. Do you agree?
Slipknot’s very own Knotfest has revealed additional bands for the October 24th - 26th destination festival held at San Manuel Amphitheater & Campgrounds in San Bernardino, CA.

"It has been way too long since we headlined in the good ol' US of A and it's an honor to be co-headlining with our friends in Black Dahlia. It doesn't matter how long your hair is, what your girlfriend looks like, or if you make it into work the next day... Come out and party with us!"

The line to get into Mohawk was split in half between minors and adults. Although The Black Dahlia Murder has more than a decade under its 30-something beltline, the band is still a hot commodity among young listeners. The older demographic spawned by Carcass and Gorguts wasn't always welcoming to the 'core kids and their icons, TBDM; however, in terms of attendance, Decibel Magazine was onto something when they squeezed together, and I do mean squeeze, these disparate bands.
Baltimore, Maryland upstarts, Noisem provided a jolting dose of death/thrash. Featuring tracks culled from their recent "Agony Defied" album, the A389 recording artist played fast and spurned on oncoming body-mass wall. Standing on the first balcony, I often found myself checking out the bang bodies below. Long-hairs and spiked dos came together, often in a brutal-yet-loving fashion.
As they continued to prepare the Scumship for war, the unstoppable force known as Gwar has announced two Australian headline shows in addition to appearances at this year's Soundwave Festival.
The first show is set for Wednesday February 26th in Sydney at The Factory Theater and the second show is set for the following night Thursday February 27th in Melbourne at 170 Russell.
Supporting the Scumdogs on these two dates of devastation are Amon Amarth, Satyricon, and The Black Dahlia Murder.
"The sickest, heaviest, most beastly bands of this years Soundwave will be joining forces to create the most hideous noise ever," said notorious asshole Oderus Urungus, lead singer of Gwar and despoiler of the planet Remulak. "It's an amazing line-up and I fully expect to see mounds of flaming corpses where once stood smiling fans."
Catch Gwar live:
2/22/14: Soundwave Festival Brisbane
2/23/14: Soundwave Festival Sydney
2/28/14: Soundwave Festival Melbourne
3/1/14: Soundwave Festival Adelaide
3/3/14: Soundwave Festival Perth

In an article previously published on Bloody-Disgusting.com, Strnad recalled the impact of the movie: "I remember the first time I saw Evil Dead… it was at my friend's birthday party in 7th grade. It was recommended by the same older sister that had gotten us all into punk and heavy metal music… so we knew we were in for the real deal. The movie scared the unholy 13 year old shit out of us… we were terrified. I remember the possessions really affecting me… the way the people would contort and writhe was disturbing. The possessed had that awful way that they sounded when they spoke and howled… pretty insane as well. The vine rape scene was intense… I love the idea of the forest coming alive… so much so that I wrote a song about it many years later."
The track listing for "Everblack" is:
1. In Hell Is Where She Waits for Me
2. Goat of Departure
3. Into the Everblack
4. Raped in Hatred by Vines of Thorn
