Got an interesting little tidbit for all the gamers out there today. Remember when Skyrim had a quest riddled with references to Katatonia songs?
Turns out somebody at Bethesda must be a Katatonia fanatic, because more references to the Swedish band's music appeared in a terminal in the recently-released Fallout 4. Check it out below.
Is it the most metal anti-smoking ad ever? Whatever. But how is it that there isn’t a real band called "Death Maggot" yet?
An animated Halloween parody of Lamb Of God's "Redneck" and "Now You've Got Something to Die for", done by Joey Siler creator of "Cooking Hostile", can be viewed below. Vocals and sound effects by Scott Mckay. Lyrics and Animation by Joey Siler.
Check it out.

The filming of Discovery Channel's Shark Week show "Bride of Jaws" shows that Great White sharks are attracted to the low frequencies of heavy metal. Hoping to attract a sixteen-foot shark known as "Joan," the crew plays a track from Darkest Hour. It doesn't bring in the big fish they were looking for but it does lure two other great whites, including twelve and fourteen footers. The low frequencies of heavy metal apparently resemble struggling fish to sharks. More...
Apparently there are still Creed fans out there, and they are mighty pissed that the upcoming "Rocky" spinoff movie will be titled "Creed" (a reference to the son of Apollo Creed from the "Rocky" franchise).
They feel so passionately about people confusing the band with the movie that an online petition has been launched to change the film's name. Get your chuckles for the day here, or you can read excerpts from their demands below.
The movie CREED about the son of Rocky Balboa's deceased trainer's son, is making it difficult, if not impossible, for the still-vital online Creed fanbase to exchange thoughts and discussion regarding band developments, song interpretation, rumors, non-erotic fanfiction, and deeper insights into the expanded Creed universe. MGM has completely disrespected the Creedmunity by using the name of the still-popular band for their non-Creed related movie and have been stifling conversation by flooding social media hashtags and searches with non-music Creed discussion. MGM should have consulted Creed experts and online leaders before titling this movie. The Creedmunity will not be silenced.
We can make a difference. The online Creed fanbase and the discussion of this movie do not have to be enemies. We can be friends. However I can guarantee that if MGM does NOT change the title that no self-respecting Creed fan will EVER see this movie, not even on bootleg!!!!!!!!!!
I'm sort of concerned about the need to qualify that the fan fiction they are discussing is non-erotic in nature, because now I know that erotic Creed fan fiction exists online somewhere, and that bums me right the fuck out. The whole thing seems too silly to be serious, but that's not stopping people from signing the petition. Anyway, check out a trailer for "Creed" below. More...
Remember when Mary Poppins met death metal? Well Andy Rehfeldt is at it again, with an actually pretty fucking awesome mashup of Grease and some quality death metal.
Relive all the Travolta love in "The One That I Want" with a serious twist below. The music was recorded and produced at Endless Noise and features vocals by Thomas Hinds and Dori Kreisz.
In keeping with the goal of finding the "best of the best" for fans regardless of who manufactures it, the members of Anthrax have produced a new bourbon, "The Devil You Know," priced at $59 and available now at this location.
"If we find something we really like and that we actually drink ourselves, we think maybe our fans might like it too, so we want to make it available for them," said Anthrax's Scott Ian. "We really enjoyed 'Indians,' the bourbon we produced last year, and obviously our fans did as well as it sold out really quickly."
Consequently, Anthrax decided to do another round of "taste testing," this time working with Kentucky-based Knob Creek to produce two barrels of a high-end bourbon, "The Devil You Know," now part of the distillery's small batch bourbon collection. Both barrels were aged for nine years, a process that results in a much richer more distinctive taste, and every bottle purchased ships with a card personally autographed by the band.
Anthrax is currently in the final stages of recording the follow up to Grammy-nominated 2011 hit, "Worship Music." The new album is expected out early 2016. More...
Our favorite TV/movie/video game shred master Eric Calderone is at it again, this time posting a "Fallout Meets Metal" video, which can be seen below. Eric comments:
"So one of the shining moments of E3 for a lot of us was Fallout 4. The first one I played was Fallout 2 back in '98 I think it was and have been loving not just the game but the idea of it ever since.
"I went to FB to get some suggestions from you all and decided to give the Fallout 3 theme a shot along with some oldie tunes, 'Blue Moon' - I didnt base it off of the Sinatra version in the game, and 'Ain't That A Kick In The Head.' I wish I could have included all the oldies but I need Tony Bennett with me :)
"I also did my best to accent the game as much as I could. Thank you guys so much for everything! It means the world. BIG BIG ups for always rocking my casbah!"
This one's for those of you keep up with the latest on SCOTUS: Coheed and Cambria performed an original song with excerpts entirely taken from Justice Scalia's recent dissenting opinions on the Affordable Care Act and same-sex marriage, both of which were just affirmed in America this week.

Following in the footsteps of the shred master Eric Calederone, guitarist Patrick Kevin Govan has released an 8 string metal cover of the "Jurassic World" theme song. Check out the video below, starring the world famous Rexy, the terrifying inflatable and ridable T-Rex, rawr!
The Westboro Baptist Church has made frequent headlines over the past few years with highly homophobic protest rallies and has been highly vocal against heavy metal.
So imagine our surprise when MetalSucks video correspondent Brian Storm attended a Westboro Baptist Church rally in Virginia and former church spokesperson Shirley Phelps-Roper busted out into song with a religious version of Ozzy’s “Crazy Train” that’s been retro-fitted with God-loving, Christian-appropriate lyrics. Enjoy the crazy below.
