This Week In Metal - August 24th, 2006

A third week, and to my surprise Slayer isn't number 1. Strapping Young Lad keeps the #1 spot for the second straight week. Meanwhile Slayer is at their heels and I would bet good money they takeover the top spot next week. Hatebreed's new album Supremecy could be the only thing that comes inbetween all of that but I highly doubt it. All That Remains holds strong as one of 4 bands that have stayed in the top 10 since TWIM was brought back. The second biggest highlight of the chart is the fact that All Shall Perish has broken thru and taken a spot inside the top 10. I've been a fan of these boys for a while and its amazing to see their name share spots with the likes of Shadows Fall and Unearth. And now for the chart courtesy of CMJ :

610Human AbstractNocturne26
7 3Shadows FallFallout From the War31
94Between the Buried and MeThe Anatomy Of34
10*All Shall PerishThe Price Of Exsistance110

And now for the tunes, with a drastic change in this weeks chart. Unearth jumps from seven to first, while Slayer's Cult drops from first to tenth. Only six songs stayed on the chart, while we had four really strong debuts from great bands. Hatebreed, Mastodon and the new ATR single. Not to mention the ever-growing popularity of Human Abstract debuts. The singles chart is always shaky as the seeming flavor of the week is always ahead here, and now for the music, courtesy of MusicMatch:

Stone Sour's Hell & Consequences Live Video Online

"Come What(ever) May" moved 81,000 units in the United States its first week out — triple what STONE SOUR's gold-selling debut album shifted its first week. Additionally, the video for the first single, "Through Glass", was added into rotation at VH1. The band kicked off its stint on The Family Values Tour late July, performing alongside rock veterans KORN, DEFTONES, FLYLEAF and DIR EN GREY.

This Week In Metal - August 17th, 2006

A new top album ? Its true, this week Strapping Young Lad takes over the top spot from Shadows Fall. Both of these bands are very deserving, but we crown our second #1 in as many weeks. Last weeks top 7 managed to stay on the chart, but jump around a little bit. While we have 3 brand new albums debuting this week, with one going as high as #6 in Voivod's Katorz. This is quite possibly the best album these guys have released and they are finally getting the notority they deserve. Not far behind them in the new releases is Unearths' III: The Eyes Of Fire, which is amazing considering it hasnt been released in alot of areas yet but the pre-orders are astounding. I see a #1 in the future for these guys, but who can knock off the consistancy SYL is showing. All That Remains also leapfrogged The Shads into the #2 slot and the big jumper was Between The Buried And Me gaining three slots, which is hard to do considering the company they are in. Meanwhile, Cellador dropped from 8th to 11th. Acacia Strain from 9th to 14th and BYD to 12th. New albums already making a storm up the charts are Slayers "Christ Illusion" with pre-ordering alone landing it inside the top 20. Hatebreed's Supremecy is also showing strong and will reach the top 10 next week. Also in responding to the comments I am considering making this, and the singles list a top 15. If you think its a good idea please respond so, or if thats too much tell me to keep it at 10. \m/.

Now for the singles, with a very familiar band to anyone who visits this site, taking over as #1. Lamb of God also stays strong moving up 1 to #2. Shadows Fall and Stone Sour round out the top 4 with a big jumper for the week Celtic Frost's Ground moving up to number 5. Threat Signal holds strong and then we get to three really strong debuts by 3 really strong bands. SYL's new ozzfest anthem boasts the #9 spot as a highlight of the new songs. Roudning out the top 10 is BLS with Concrete Jungle.

This Week In Metal - August 10th, 2006

Welcome to the return of This Week In Metal, a column I used to do before I was forced to take a hiatus from metalunderground.com. In this weekly column, we will update the top 10 selling albums in the metal industry (courtesy of CMJ) and the top 10 radio singles (pulled from Music Match). They use a number of sources for the list, including all satellite radio. While you may find a few bands that are too soft for the list, I assure you there will be more then enough surprises. Feel free to comment on the list and who you think is over/under-rated, what bands you expected to see and which ones you didn't. Again this column will run weekly, so be sure to check for it every Thursday in the columns area of MetalUnderground.com.

Now for the music, we will start each week with the albums. It's a good mix of what bands are bursting the underground, and some bands that have been killing for quite a while now.

10Bury Your DeadBeauty And The Breakdown110

Now for the tunes. These singles are a real who's who amongst metal right now. I find the list to be powerful and only really have one flaw. Keep in mind some songs have been out longer then others and have picked up a good fanbase on the radio, other songs have just come out and are sure to see their time at the top.

Corey Taylor In Depth On Bush, Music and More

MSO PR has issued the following question-and-answer session with SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor:

Q: Let's start with "Through Glass", the first single from "Come What(ever) May". What inspired that one? Where were you when you wrote it, if you can remember?

Corey: I remember exactly where I was. It was 2004 and I was on tour with SLIPKNOT. I was sitting in a European hotel room watching a music video channel, seeing act after act after act of this inane, innocuous, plastic music. They were plastic, bubbly, gossamer-thin groups where it was really more about the clothes they wore and the length of their cheekbones than it was about the content of the song they were singing.

It really made me mad. I was like, "Is this it? Have we just gone full circle? Did the singer/songwriter revolution never happen?" Is it just the same drivel from the same replicant over and over again? "Through Glass" is really a very angry song. It's me basically calling "bullshit" on pretty much everyone involved with the "American Idol"-type shows. It has its place, but when you're basically cornering the market and making it very hard for anyone who actually writes their own music to get ahead, then it's wrong and that's really why I wrote this song.

Q: The video for "Through Glass" takes place in the most plastic of scenarios: the cliché, vacant, Hollywoodesque party… More...

More Details In Korn Concert Beating

Andy Richardson, who was badly beaten in a fight at a Family Values concert, has since passed. More details about the events that lead to the fight and his death have been revealed. Here are some excerpts from an AZCentral article adding to what had already been reported here:

"We just went out there to have a good night," said one friend, Eddie Arellano. "It was starting off fun. And then this whole thing turned into a nightmare."

According to Arellano and others at the concert, there was a group of rowdy men at the show.

"These guys were just way too drunk. They had too many fights," Arellano said.

Earlier in the evening, some of the rowdies tumbled down a hill, crashing into Richardson and his friends. There was a brief scuffle, according to Bernice Averil, who was in Richardson's group. A little later, the rowdies returned and one of them snatched Richardson's cap.

"When they took his hat he stood up and said 'We've already had a fight. I don't want to have any problems,' " Arellano said, describing the moments just before the punch. "The guy threw the hat back at him. And when he (Richardson) caught it, the guy hit him in the face and he hit the ground and hit the concrete with the back of his head. He just collapsed.

"His face was bloody. It was bad. It was horrible," said Arellano, who was Richardson's roommate.

The person who threw the punch and that person's friend ran off, Arellano said.

Atlanta police spokesman Officer Steve Coleman said homicide detectives "have people of interest" but no arrests had been made. Police have a "vague description" of the person who threw the punch, according to Sgt. Kevin Iosty.

Jack Gannon, a spokesman for House of Blues, a California-based company that has a sponsorship deal with what's now called HiFi Buys Amphitheater, said the incident was "unfortunate and tragic" and that the company is "cooperating fully with the Atlanta Police Department investigation."

Man Badly Beaten At Family Values Concert

A 30-year-old man who was beaten in the mosh pit at the Family Values show at Atlanta's Hi-Fi Buys Amphitheater on Sunday night is hospitalized and on life support after being declared brain dead. According to Atlanta's WSB-TV, 30-year-old Andy Richardson is in critical condition following the fight, during which two unidentified men attacked him in the mosh pit after Richardson asked the men to be careful not to hurt his pregnant girlfriend and a mentally challenged child they had with them.

"Can you imagine your child goes to a concert and be killed for it, because of people out there fighting to have a quote unquote good time?" Richardson's mom, Gloria told the station. "And I'm angry. I'm very angry. Why were the police not there to stop them?"

A friend of Richardson's who attended the Korn-headlined show with him, Edgar Arellano, said the fight broke out after Richardson asked the men to be careful, but it ended soon after that and the men left the area. "We were all enjoying the concert, we were having a good time, until these two guys came around," Arellano said, adding that the men showed up again and one of them punched Richardson in the head, knocking him head first onto the concrete.

"He was unconscious. He had blood all over his face when I picked him up," Arellano said.

WSB-TV reported that homicide investigators are looking into the beating, but have only a vague description of the suspects. A spokesperson for the Atlanta Police Department could not be reached for comment at press time. A spokesperson for the amphitheater could not be reached for comment.

Richardson's mother said her son is brain dead and on life support and is not expected to live.

Interview With Corey Taylor

Mandy Feingold of FMQB recently conducted an interview with SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor. An excerpt from the chat follows:

FMQB: This new STONE SOUR record is even more of a departure from your identity with SLIPKNOT than the first record. Is it important for you to keep those two musical identities separate?

Corey: "It is, but it isn't. The reason the album sounds the way it does is because it's actually closer to old-school STONE SOUR than it is anything else. I think when we did the first STONE SOUR album we were just throwing everything together to see what would happen. With this album, we knew we had an audience, and we knew people had really dug the stuff that we put on the first album. So we were like, 'Let's get back to basics. Let's get back to the thought process of, if we write something and we dig it, no matter how diverse it is, we'll put it out.' That's how the album came together, and that's really what this band is about."

FMQB: What do you get out of doing STONE SOUR that you don't get from SLIPKNOT?

Corey: "Everything else, let's put it that way. SLIPKNOT is still very grounded in the metal genre. It's very dark. And that's one side of my personality and one side of the things I like to do. STONE SOUR kind of allows me to do everything else, and that's what's so great about it. I know it's definitely why we put it back together, and I think it's why we have such a blast doing it."

FMQB: Do you think the bands have two different fan bases?

Corey: "I do. I think there are actually three different groups of people. There are people that love SLIPKNOT and don't really care about STONE SOUR. There are people in the middle that like both. And then there are people who really dig STONE SOUR and really don't care about SLIPKNOT. So I've got the best of everything right now. I'm actually in a really good spot. We've got a lot of fans that have made a decision, and that's the thing you want at the end of the day. You want people to either love it or hate it, but not to dismiss it."

FMQB: When you write a song, how do you know if it's for STONE SOUR or SLIPKNOT?

Corey: "When I write the music it's pretty much a guaranteed STONE SOUR song, because that's more the style that I write in. With SLIPKNOT, everybody in the band is so good technically in that genre that I just kind of sit back and go, 'You know what, I'll handle the lyrics, it's all good.' I think in the 10 years I've been in SLIPKNOT, I've written four riffs. But with STONE SOUR, it's much more of a hard rock deal. Even the heavier stuff — it's more fluid. That's where my musical style fits in. So when I write something with a guitar, I pretty much know it's a STONE SOUR song right out of the gate. Lyrically, it's a little different. I tend to let the music dictate where I'm going lyrically, so if a song is not my music, then it can go either way. When Paul [Gray] and Joey [Jordison] bring me stuff, obviously it's going to be a SLIPKNOT song. When Jim [Root] and Josh [Rand] bring me something, it's pretty much guaranteed to be a STONE SOUR thing. But when I'm just sitting around writing lyrics that I really don't have anything for, you never know. I may hear something that Paul and Joey have written, and I go, 'You know what, I wrote something about a year ago that could fit with that.' So it's really a crapshoot."

Stone Sour Slams Pop-Culture In New Video

STONE SOUR are currently preparing to hit the road with Korn and Deftones on The Family Values Tour, beginning on July 29 in Nashville, TN as the August 1 release of their album COME WHAT(EVER) MAY approaches. The band’s Top 20 Modern Rock single “Through Glass” continues to build strongly at radio and its video is sure to hit a nerve with some of today’s pop culture icons. STONE SOUR--lead vocalist COREY TAYLOR and guitarist JAMES ROOT (who do double duty in multi-platinum, Grammy winners Slipknot), bassist SHAWN ECONOMAKI, guitarist JOSH RAND and drummer ROY MAYORGA--will debut the song live on national television Thursday, August 8 when they perform on NBC-TV’s The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.

For the song’s video, STONE SOUR worked with director Tony Petrossian (Slipknot, Avenged Sevenfold, Head Automatica) to create a potent visual that assails the ever-growing plastic celebrity culture. In the clip--shot at a Chatsworth, CA hilltop home previously owned by Frank Sinatra--stereotypical caricatures of celebrity and entertainment industry figures are seen at a party as members of STONE SOUR wander throughout the house. C.C. Deville (of Poison fame and more recently of The Surreal Life on VH1) has a cameo as one of the revelers. The members of the band stand in sharp contrast to the farce playing out around them. The artificiality of the celebrities and industry types is underlined when they literally transform into cardboard cutouts of themselves and are picked up and carried away by stagehands. The video storyline ends with STONE SOUR performing alone in front of a sign that captures it all: “HOLLOWOOD.”

The song itself--with its reference to “An epidemic of the mannequins contaminating everything”--began when TAYLOR was “sitting in a European hotel room watching a music video channel,” he says. “I just remember seeing act after act of this inane, innocuous, plastic music. They were bubbly gossamer-thin groups, where it was really more about the clothes they wore and the length of their cheekbones than it was about the content of the song they were singing. ‘Through Glass’ is really a very angry song. It’s me basically calling ‘bullshit’ on pretty much everyone involved with the ‘American Idol’-type shows. It has its place, but when you’re basically cornering the market and making it very hard for anyone who actually writes their own music to get ahead, then it's wrong and that’s really why I wrote this song.”

The public’s fixation on the lives of celebrities and plastic culture, as reflected in the video, is distracting people from focusing on society’s real problems, TAYLOR feels. “People are realizing now--a little too late--that they let the administration get away with things that are unconstitutional, including pardoning their white collar crime friends. A brain can only take so much before you say, ‘Good God, I need to wrap my head around something that I can deal with.’ So people go to these innocuous magazines that show the glamorous life. They want to see celebrities’ lifestyles; they don’t want to know what celebrities think for the most part. They don’t want them to be socially conscious because then they have to realize that there is a problem. ”
