Macabre’s “Hitchhiker” Rockets Up The Charts

Legendary grindcore/death metal band Macabre are enjoying a healthy chart resurgence for their classic track "Hitchhiker", taken from their 2000 concept album, “Dahmer“. That meteoric rise for the 22-year-old track was triggered by its appearance in the recently debuted episode 3, "Doin' A Dahmer", of Netflix hit crime drama series ‘Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story‘.

Its inclusion served as a introduction to a whole new audience, propelling it to the top of the iTunes rock chart and also as of press time, #14 on the Spotify global top 50 most streamed tracks.

The version of the track featured within the series showcases some additional guitar tracking done by American actor Evan Peters, who portrays Jeffrey Dahmer in the miniseries. Peters is probably best known for his multiple roles on the FX anthology series American Horror Story.

Macabre themselves commented on their inclusion in the series on social media yesterday, October 04th, offering: More...

DEVO Recording A Heavy Metal Album

After creating nine albums of quirky 80’s rock music, the very eclectic Akron, Ohio based band is currently recording a heavy metal album. The album is expected to be released late summer on Season of Mystify Records. The album will have new synth-metal material along with some metalized versions of their most popular hits to include “Whip It,” “Mongoloid” and “Jocko Homo.”

Lead vocalist and guitarist, Mark Mothersbaugh, had this to say about the change of genre experimentation: “In our heyday, we had our own little niche for sure but we were always in awe of bands like Motorhead, AC/DC and Ted Nugent. Mostly because all the girls liked them, not so much for the music they created.”

DEVO is expected to go on a short tour run with Baby Metal during the fall and are rumored to be added to the Hellfest and Wacken line-ups this summer.

Alestorm Tour Bus Boarded!

Scottish pirate metal icons Alestorm has revealed that they were left in a state of disarray while on tour in Florida, after their tour bus was raided by rival buccaneers from the Tampa area. The band claims that while travelling down I-275, they were surprised by a loud thud on the side of their tour bus. Rushing to the windows expecting to see that they had struck something, they were instead met with the sight of a long blank of wood sticking into the baggage space of their coach, as well as a quote, "fucking massive pirate ship shaped van."

Rushing to defend themselves, the band looked in the back of the bus, assured that it had been fitted with a Cutlass, only to find a DVD of the Dakota Fanning movie of the same name. After narrowly missing their unwanted guests when throwing the disc starboard and failing to negotiate peace when instead of asking the boarders terms, their parrot, Craiglang would only squawk, "I pumped yer maw," the quintet were soon forced to hand over their booty... And their treasure, including all instruments, money and merchandise, save for copies of Alestorm's secret sea shanty single, asking, "Hasn't that fad died yet?"

The band are now safely at home in Scotland and are still expected to release their new album, "Seventh Rum Of A Seventh Rum" this June, as well as to embark on their tour of Europe, where nothing bad ever happens.

Sebastian Bach To Wrestle Chris Jericho?

After a long back and forth between the two vocalists, which has included accusations of miming, copying stage moves and political differences, former Skid Row vocalist Sebastian Bach is being rumoured to face Fozzy frontman and wrestling legend Chris Jericho at an upcoming edition of All Elite Wrestling's weekly show, Dynamite. In the company's short but notable lifespan, such names as Mike Tyson, Gene Simmons, Kevin Smith and most recently, Shaquille O'Neal, who wrestled against co-founder Cody Rhodes, have all appeared on the show and now it seems, the "Youth Gone Wild" singer will be the latest to step into the ring.

The war of words began when Bach told supporters of former United States president Donald Trump that they "stand against rock and roll," before somebody pointed out the visual similarities between the vocalist and the inaugaral AEW champion. In an unexpected Twitter spat, Bach would go on to accuse Jericho of miming at Fozzy shows, comparing him to Milli Vanilli. Jericho would soon respond to Bach, saying: "I sing my ass off every night dude. Do you really wanna go there?" before adding, "Hi… I’m Chris “Milli Vanilli” Jericho. I have 5 top 30 singles in the last five years with my band @FOZZYROCK. I’m a huge fan of @sebastianbach … who had 3 top 30 singles 30 years ago. I always admired him as a singer and a friend! And I still do."

After Bach continued to accuse Jericho of lip syncing, the former WWE champion said he would be happy to have a "sing off" against Bach with "No effects, no tuning, no bullshit," adding "Bas is a great singer... But I'm better. You've got my number dude. Call me." Bach denied any derogatory comments, but claimed that Jericho knew nothing about rock and roll and then claimed that "wrestling is not rock and roll." The sometimes actor went on to argue with random Twitter users before going to bed.

Before the dust could settle though, Jericho's Fozzy bandmate and Stuck Mojo founder Rich Ward got involved, stating that "Jericho is loyal and was always quick to defend a guy that he considered a friend. Seeing Sebastian publicly go after the only guy that I have ever witness utter a nice word about him is sad." Bach then did himself no favours by posting a screenshot of a series of texts he had sent to Jericho, insulting his singing on a livestream video and calling him a "pussy" several times.

Since then, the two have continued to take sporadic shots at each other, but it now seems as though the feud could be put to bed. All Elite Wrestling, the company which was founded by Jacksonville Jaguars and Fulham F.C. co-owner Tony Khan and such wrestlers as Kenny Omega, Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks (Nick and Matt Jackson,) is known for their "special" episodes of their weekly TNT show Dynamite with recent examples being "Beach Break" and "Winter Is Coming" and now it seems, they have a marquee match to promote. Bach is rumoured to be working with AEW trainers QT Marshall and Billy Gunn to prepare for a match against the wrestler and whispers have already begun that he could be joined by his former Skid Row bandmates to counter the numbers of Chris Jericho's stable, the Inner Circle (Santana, Ortiz, Sammy Guevara and Jake Hager.)

New Metal Festival Promises to Break World Record

Black Sabbath, Anvil, Korn and Cannibal Corpse are the first bands to confirm for Masking Hate, a virtual music festival to take place on July 10th, 2021. The festival organizers stated that, “The festival will take place indoors but will definitely have an open-air festival feel to it for sure.” The organizers also stated that there will be so many camera angles to choose from to include a tether ball cam, beer bottle cams and a bass woofer cam that is guaranteed to give the viewer a feeling of what it’s like to have a seizure.

In addition, Guinness World Records will be contacted to document and certify the number of camera angles used to see if it breaks the current record of sixty-nine. More bands will be announced in the coming weeks and tickets go on sale today at www.maskyerhate.gov. At least 100 bands are expected to fill out the line-up and those that order the festival stream, will receive a mask with all the bands playing the festival printed on it.
