Newly Found Fossil Named After Rotting Christ

Metal veteran brothers Sakis and Themis Tolis of the Greek metal legends Rotting Christ have been bestowed the immortal honour of having a newly discovered fossil species named after them. Two researchers from the Natural History Museum in Luxembourg, Dr. Ben Thuy and and Dr. Lea Numberger, recently found a new brittle-star species and decided to name it "Brezinacantha Tolis" in honor of the Tolis brothers.

Sakis Tolis comments, "My deepest thanks to the paleontological community, and especially to Dr. Ben Thuy and Dr. Lea Numberger, to name a fossil under my name! This is one of the greatest honours I have received as an individual and musician and gives me power to keep on creating during these wild times. Brezinacantha Tolis can be found in the Natural History Museum in Maastricht. If you are close have a look!"

Dr. Ben Thuy and Dr. Lea Numberger explain the inspiration behind the fossil name: "When we first saw the fossil brittle star, we immediately knew it was something exciting. It turned out to be a species new to science, and so we had the privilege to name it. With the choice of the name, we wanted to combine our joint passions for science and music, and decided to honour one of our favourite bands. The new fossil belongs to an animal that lived in a dark, toxic environment in the depths of an ancient ocean, dwelling on the remains of their dead predecessors. This is pure black metal! Naming this species after Sakis and Themis Tolis is our way to issue an academic recognition of their talent and hard work. Now they own a small piece of immortality, because scientific species names are for eternity."

A Fall To Break Explains Being Divided By Tyrants

Every local scene has its hometown heroes. The bands who've been around for a good while, performing with some of the biggest names in the business and give the younger, aspiring bands someone they can look up to. For rockers in Tucson, Arizona, that honour surely belongs to A Fall To Break, the alternative metal band who now have five albums under their belt, shared the stage with such bands as Rob Zombie, Lacuna Coil and Godsmack to name a few and even had their music featured in the trailer for the video game Postal 4.

Now, the quintet has unleashed what may be their most important album to date, "Divided By Tyrants," a timely and powerful record which packs a Tyson Fury-esque punch combined with poignant lyrics. To discover more about the album, I spoke with guitarist Craig Artz about the meanings within "Divided By Tyrants," the importance of releasing the album before election day, collaborating with Robby Lochner (Jack Russell’s Great White/Rob Halfords Fight) and much more. You can check out the interview in full below. More...
