Orange Amplification Posts Spoof TV Shopping Video

Orange Amplification is in on the joke as International Artist Relations Manager, Alex Auxier stars with Troy McLawhorn of Evanescence in a new video that spoofs all their new guitar pedals, parodying a TV shopping channel.

In the new video, Alex overcomes hitches with the film set, sound technical difficulties and the bored, stroppy, foul-mouthed presenter Jeremy to tell viewers about the attributes of each pedal as Troy demonstrates them.

Following an argument about whether he can take calls from potential customers, Alex eventually gets to talk to Ler LaLonde (Primus), Stephen Carpenter (Deftones), Gary Busey (Buddy Holly in The Buddy Holly Story), Jim Root (Slipknot), Joe Trohman (Fall Out Boy) and Matt Pike (Sleep / High On Fire).

Archspire Vocalist Launches GoFundMe For Keene

Archspire frontman Oliver Rae Aleron is back with another beef-driven GoFundMe campaign. Previously he tried to raise funds to "fight Tim Lambesis". This time Aleron is pursuing a beef against The Faceless mainman Michael Keene, attempting to buy him singing lessons. As the campaign states:

“Please help my dear freind Micheal Keene fulfill his dream of becoming a talented singer. He has been attempting to sing for many years now but just can’t seem to figure it out. I hope that with your help and the proper training he can one day achieve his dream of singing his heart out without sounding like a nasally, tone def, strung out Mike Patton. Any donation will be greatly appreciated by everyone in the death metal community.”

Some more insight into their conflict can be read via the below Facebook post shared by Oliver Rae Aleron. Keene‘s initial statement shared in the below screencap references The Faceless‘ recent decision to remove Inanimate Existence from a tour following allegations of sexual harassment leveled against their vocalist, Cameron Porras.
