Watch A Truly Cringe Worthy Festival Set

Get ready to cringe watching a hilarious train wreck of a festival opener as Azazel kicks off the Steelfest Open Air... to less than inspiring results.

In the clip below, filmed by Youtuber kirrneh, the band's guitarist starts in a seated position, the vocalist literally drinks the entire set, and for awhile the group sort of just mills around on stage talking to each other in the middle of a song.

Steelfest took place in Hyvinkää, Finland on May 19th, 2017. The video uploader hilariously notes: "Azazel opened the festival. Apparently the artists had also opened their bottles before that."

Scandroid Covers "The Force Theme"

Scandroid has taken a Star Wars classic, “The Force Theme,” and turned the synths up to 11 in an epic cover to inspire the Jedi within us all.

When asked about his inspiration for the cover, Klayton, the sole member of Scandroid replied, “I was inspired by artists like Tomita who re-imagined iconic Star Wars themes with synthesizers. I was excited to cover the 'The Force Theme' because I wanted to blend classic analog synthesizers with a re-orchestration of the original song. Not only was I influenced by the classic Star Wars films, but I am inspired by the possibilities of the new films.”

This is the Star Wars cover you’re looking for, and May the Fourth be with you! More...

"The Void" Coming Digitally April 7th

After "The Devil's Candy" last month, another horror movie is about to arrive via Video On Demand streaming services this Friday that will be of particular interest to metal fans.

Featuring Amy Groening from the exceedingly metal TV show "Todd and the Book of Pure Evil" and Ellen Wong ("Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World"), new 80s inspired horror flick "The Void" has left the festival circuit and will be available digitally on April 7th.

Drawing heavily on Lovecraftian lore and with clear nods to "The Thing," "In The Mouth Of Madness," and other classic creature feature flicks, "The Void" focuses on practical effects over CGI and will no doubt inspire a horde of technical death metal albums in the not-too-distant future.

Showcasing the power of fan choice through crowd funding, the movie was funded via IndieGoGo on the strength of a proof-of-concept trailer highlighting practical effects sadly missing from most modern horror flicks.

Check out the latest trailer below and get ready to go mad in just four more days! More...

Brujeria To Star In Animated Show

Brujeria, the self-styled Mexican cartel, deathgrind supergroup featuring members of Napalm Death, Carcass and Pentagram Chile, has been confirmed to be starring in their own late night cartoon show, "Brujeria... IN SPACE!" which will be airing on Cartoon Network's late night animated block, Adult Swim this July. The series is a collaboration between Metalocalypse creators Brendom Small & Tommy Blacha with Aqua Teen Hunger Force creators Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro and was put forward as a project to continue and develop the style of their beloved shows.

The first series will feature ten episodes, each roughly ten minutes in length and will centre on the band running a store which sells medical Marijuana and accessories in El Paso, Texas, while getting into surreal adventures involving the supernatural, the law and their landlord, who will be voiced by professional wrestler, Stone Cold Steve Austin. As expected, there will be guest appearances from other metal musicians, carrying on the tradition of Metalocalypse, with Napalm Death frontman Barney Greenway, Lamb Of God guitarist Mark Morton and Melechesh leader, Ashmedi all confirmed, as well as Babymetal, who will appear in the anime themed episode, "Brujeria Super Fun Smoking Time," while rapper and death metal fan, Necro will have a regular role voicing the band's dog, Coño.

As of yet, no trailers have been posted online, though one is expected to premier on the Nuclear Blast YouTube channel by the end of the week. The band themselves will be promoting the show and their new album, "Pocho Aztlan" on an upcoming tour of Europe with Napalm Death, Lock Up and Power Trip, where guitarist Shane Embury will be pulling a triple shift.

Mayhem To Use Euronymous Hologram

In recent years, it's becoming increasingly (and frighteningly) common for dead musicians to be brought back to the stage using holographic technology, with the likes of Michael Jackson, Tupac Shakur, Elvis Presley and even Ronnie James Dio all being seen by live audiences again. While the use of these projections a great deal of debate and controversy, mostly owing to the ethics of using the likenesses of musicians who died before they could give any consent to such use of their image and the argument that the holograms cheapen both the memories of the musicians and the live experience overall, it is nevertheless becoming a more common sight. It has now been revealed that the latest band to use the technology will be Norwegian black metal legends, Mayhem, who will use it to recreate the image of deceased guitarist Øystein "Euronymous" Aarseth.

Mayhem will be hitting the road this year to perform their classic debut full length, "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas" in full and to mark the occassion, the group has teamed up with Eyellusion, who worked on the Ronnie James Dio hologram to bring back Euronymous and give fans who never got the chance to see him in person the opportunity to do so. No word has been given yet on whether his image will be used for one song or for the whole performance, but it's sure to be a decision which is divisive among fans.

Aarseth was infamously killed in 1993 at the hands of Burzum mastermind and former bandmate, Varg Vikernes, who performed bass on the "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas" record. He was given the maximum Norwegian prison sentence of 21 years, but released in 2009. More...

Paradise Lost Cancels Tour Due To Brexit

This week, British Prime Minister Teresa May triggered the Article 50 clause in the European Union membership rules, triggering the departure of Great Britain from the EU. While the long term economic and social effects may not be seen for some time, one section of people already struggling are lesser known musical acts from Britain, with gothic metal band Paradise Lost, indie rockers Elbow and rapper Stormzy already having to cancel scheduled shows in the continent due to travel restrictions.

Membership of the European Union grants the right of free movement to the citizens of the included countries and as such, the ability to work in other member states. The uncertainty created by the decision of the referendum held last year in the United Kingdom has led to promoters being unable to assure artists that planned shows will go ahead and in many cases, scrapping scheduled dates altogether.

One band hit hardest and said to be most outraged by the events is Scottish "pirate metal" group Alestorm. As Scotland voted overwhelmingly to stay in the European Union, the band feel that they are being punished for something their nation didn't do and thus are being unfairly deprived of paying gigs.

More on this story as it develops.

Mastodon’s Hinds Thinks Judas Priest Is Not Metal

Mastodon guitarist/vocalist Brent Hinds has caused quite a stir again with his assessment that Judas Priest is not a "metal band", but rather a rock and roll band. Hinds made his comments on an episode of Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta‘s ‘The Jasta Show‘ streaming below. Explains Hinds on the show:

"I don’t. I don’t really (like metal). (I grew up listening to Judas Priest, but) Judas Priest is not metal, people, it’s rock ‘n’ motherfuckin’ roll! Who in their right mind that has a brain in their head thinks, that Judas Priest sounds like a metal band?"

Richard Spencer Punched In The Face To Hatebreed

In case anyone missed it in the social media barrage, Richard Spencer (president of the white supremacist group National Policy Institute) managed to get himself clocked pretty good on live television yesterday.

You might recall seeing Spencer's name in the news lately due to a dust up with the citizens of Whitefish in my home state of Montana, in which he planned an armed white supremacist march protesting Jewish members of the community.

After heavy media scrutiny and a grassroots awareness campaign, he was out-protested by a bunch of more heavily armed Montanans who don't put up with that sort of shit.

Back to the video of Spencer taking a fist to the face: a true Twitter hero named Zayn synced a portion of the footage up with Hatebreed's "Everyone Bleeds Now." Bravo sir!
