Soilent Green is Doled Out to New Orleans Citizens

It truly was a night to remember. The club was packed to the gills and filled with smoke from various substances. Everyone was chattering away while the bands mingled with old friends and made us wait with ardor to until they would make music for us. First on the bill was a crust punk band called Tire Fire, the singer of which is out of his fucking mind. In previous performances I’ve seen, Matt throws himself on the floor which would normally knocked the wind out of somebody, but he just keeps singing (or screaming). As the audience knocks him around, picks him up to throw him back down and kicks him, he just keeps going. He was not as crazy this night because there were barricades along the stage in anticipation of a rough night, but he still managed to kick the faces and chests of the people in the front row while he said, “Fuck barricades.” If you ever see these madmen live, check out their merch table where you can purchase a bottle of Asian whiskey that has a cobra and scorpion in it for just over $100.

Soilent Green Records Squidbillies Theme Song

Metal Blade band Soilent Green just announced they have recorded the theme song for the upcoming season of Adult Swim's "Squidbillies."

Vocalist Ben Falgoust comments:
“Squidbillies is the best cartoon…excuse me…show on TV/Internet/Cable around! I felt that way before we did the theme tracks and I feel even stronger about it since I've seen the new episodes, despite our involvement with the program, of course.

“It was an awesome and strange experience to track these theme songs for the Squidbillies. It was pretty shocking when were contacted by them to be involved with this project. I give credit to the rest of the guys in the band for pulling it off from a strange but fun perspective in incorporating Soilent Green's style into the theme song for the show.”

Testament Announces Headlining US Tour Dates

TESTAMENT has announced a string of headlining dates this October with Louisiana metallers Soilent Green. The tour includes TESTAMENT’s appearance at the Hammerstein Ballroom on October 9 in New York City, where they will be direct support to headliners Children of Bodom; also special guests, The Black Dahlia Murder and Between The Buried and Me.

Guitarist Eric Peterson checked in to discuss the Metal Masters tour and the band’s upcoming US headlining dates: "We just finished the Metal Masters tour, and it was a great tour to be on. Unfortunately, it went by too quick. We got to know everyone towards the end, and it started to feel like family. It’s too bad it had to end so soon, especially after getting to know everyone. Hopefully, the Metal Masters will continue next year in Europe."

"In the meantime, we’re heading to Japan and Australia. The last time we played there in ’06, we promised our fans we’d have a new record out the next time we came around. We kept our promise and we’re excited to get back there and play it for them."

"Once we get back, we’ll be headlining some east coast shows, including a one-off with Children of Bodom at the infamous Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC. We’ll have full production, so we’re excited to put on our whole show. This tour is going to focus on secondary markets, so we don’t spoil anything for next year. We plan on having a big year and putting a big package together, wink wink."

Upcoming Testament tour dates are as follows: More...

Ozzfest 2008 Deemed A Success By Organizers

Billboard.com reports: Ozzfest 2008, with Metallica and Ozzy Osbourne as headliners, grossed nearly $3.5 million and drew close to 30,000 people to Dallas' Pizza Hut Park, according to producers Sharon Osbourne and AEG Live.

Sponsored by Affliction Clothing, this year's Ozzfest marked the return of the 13-year-old hard music brand after a free run at amphitheaters last year. This year's one-off event did "fantastically well," Sharon Osbourne told Billboard.com. "The one thing is you want for the kids to go away and keep talking about what a great show it was, and that's what they're doing."

In addition to Metallica and Osbourne, mainstage acts were Serj Tankian, Hellyeah, Johnathan Davis, Cavalera Conspiracy, Shadows Fall, Apocalyptica, and In This Moment. The second stage featured Sevendust, Devildriver, Kingdom of Sorrow, Soilent Green, Witchcraft and Goatwhore. On the third stage were the Sword, Drowning Pool, Rigor Mortis, Within Chaos, The Destro and "battle of the bands" winners Debris and Black Tooth.

Osbourne says plans are for Ozzfest to return to Dallas again next summer, likely as a two-day festival, and other cities are also being considered. "Ozzfest ain't going anywhere," she says. "We do try and shake things up and experiment. We're not the old donkey that plods on doing the same sh*t."
