Site Update

Gotcha, April Fools!

We hope you enjoyed our April Fools gags yesterday, as we devoted the entire day to them. We sure did. They weren't as extreme as last year's stories, but we think we tricked some people just the same! If you happened to fall for any of them, then we apologize. If you weren't tricked, then hopefully you were still entertained. If you missed the stories, you can still read them all here. (Note the date on each story, however, to determine which ones are April Fools stories.)

We now return to our regularly scheduled programming of Real MetalTM news. Thanks for reading.

HAHA! absolutely brilliant!...I actually almost bought this one, just cus Lars has been very likable one minute and very easy to hate the next with his portrayal in the media. Genius. The paintings bit is what put it over the top for me though. clever as always deathbringer.

I almost bought the Hatebeak one, it's seemed to fit with the mindset of the band very well.
