Graspop Metal Meeting 2017: Day Two

After one hell of an opening day and a second night of camping, those attending this year's edition of the Graspop Metal Meeting festival had by now settled into the routine and were ready for another day. Once again, the day promised a mix of legendary names, young blood and cult favourites (or perhaps in the case of one Norwegian act, that should be "kvlt" favourites.)

Following a delay and miscomunication, I was unfortunately unable to catch Axel Rudi Pell and so my second full day at Graspop opened with a trip to Main Stage 2, which was being graced by Devildriver. Though they're not the biggest metal band of recent memory, performing at ten past one in the afternoon was something of a surprise. This did not deter the group from playing with full force and intensity and getting so many rockers' Saturday off to a great start. Frontman Dez Fafara was able to interact very well with the crowd and the high energy the group displayed at the very least impressed those in the audience who are not fans of Devildriver and delighted those who came to see them intentionally.

Dez Fafara Launches The Oracle Management

DevilDriver/Coal Chamber frontman Dez Fafara has announced the launch of The Oracle Management and brought in the expertise of artist manager Mark Vieira, formerly of Good Fight Management and Prosthetic Records.

Together, Fafara and Vieira hold more than 45 years of combined experience and share a vision and mission to create an artist-driven environment for growing acts as well as established talent to persevere in an ever-changing industry. Vieira's bands, 1349 (North America only), Black Tusk, The Casualties, Ringworm, Silver Snakes, Tombs, and Vattnet (formerly Vattnet Viskar), join the existing roster of DevilDriver, Amigo The Devil, Wil Ridge, and Made From Stars.

The Oracle CEO Dez Fafara states, "It's my great pleasure to welcome Mark Vieira and his roster of bands to The Oracle Management. When synergy happens, it's often a lightning-strike moment. In my first meeting with Mark, we had an instant connection. We both had a common mission with our artists to provide total attention to every detail - whether it be as mundane as tour routing or marketing or out-of-the-box ideas that often notch an artist up overnight due to a well-executed plan of attack on multiple fronts. We quickly formed an infrastructure from all the sources we had together which makes for a powerful combination. We get shit done and in a timely manner... that's just the facts!" More...

Rogue Records Releases Fallout 4 Mod

Rogue Records America is excited to announce that a new Fallout 4 hard rock/heavy metal radio station mod simply titled "Rogue Radio" is now available on PC and coming soon to Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

"'Rogue Radio' took FOREVER to make because it was the first time we ever made anything in the Creation Engine, so there was a bit of a learning curve," said label owner Dean Martinetti. "But, we got it done, and we've made history as the first record label to make a game mod for a major franchise AND the first time a record label made a product that also showcased other labels' artists. It's a fine day today for Rogue. We also couldn't have done this without these amazing bands helping out. They are just great talents and extraordinary people."

Complete with 44 songs from Rogue Records artists and national and emerging bands from around the globe, as well as two DJs each with their own style and playlist, the "Rogue Radio" track listing is available after the jump. More...

Devildriver Premieres "Trust No One" Video Clip

Southern California's revered groove metal band Devildriver released the long awaited seventh studio album "Trust No One" back in May via Napalm Records. Today, the band premiered a new video clip for the title track over at Metal Injection at this location (also in the player below).

Devildriver just wrapped their North American Tour, including festival appearances and an appearance at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest. It was at the Ozzfest performance where the band was able to shoot the video clip.

"I'm thankful to Sharon & Ozzy and everyone in the Osbourne camp that Devildriver was allowed to shoot a live video that day! The sun was blazing hot on a clear afternoon and the crowd went insane as soon as we took the stage. The pit was giant for us and it was killer to see such a massive crowd participating in the madness! Thanks to all who shared the memory and came out to support. Keep it Heavy!" says frontman Dez Fafara.

DevilDriver Posts "My Night Sky" Track

California’s groove metal giants from DevilDriver have premiered a new song called “My Night Sky” today. The song is featured on the band’s upcoming, 7th studio album, "Trust No One," which is due out on May 13th via Napalm Records.

Dez Fafara comments on the new track: “[It's] about a negative person trying to literally ruin the night as heard by the line 'you've poisoned the wine and it's my night.' And instead turning it around on them, showing them a mirror of themselves as heard in the first line of the verse 'desperate in your sadness so wear black cloth.' Showing that person that it's indeed their own negative thoughts of themselves that are not only ruining the night but in fact their life ....SMACK!”

DevilDriver is currently crossing the U.S. on the "Trust No One" world tour, which will include dates with Hatebreed, The Devil you Know and Act of Defiance and performances at Rocklahoma and River City Rockfest. Dates are available after the track stream. More...
