Andrew W.K. Gets Radio Show From Glenn Beck

Ultra conservative rag TheBlaze - Glenn Beck’s opinion and entertainment network - announced today the expansion of TheBlaze Radio Network with the addition of rock ‘n’ roll party guru Andrew W.K.’s new weekend radio show, America W.K.

America W.K. is a weekly two hour program and debuts on Saturday, May 2nd, 2015. Andrew will host a raw and penetrating discussion of what it is to be alive – meaning, motivation, mindset, and making dreams come true, all included in a celebration of life itself – and all with a positive and honest outlook. Andrew will also field questions and input from the audience, adding an engaging interactive component.

Andrew W.K. said: “When Glenn asked me to do my own radio show on TheBlaze, I was shocked but excited, as I knew he would allow me the unrestrained freedom to say exactly what I wanted. I’m very dedicated to exploring and learning from different people in different places, and always with an open heart. If people never went outside their own box, life would be boring. After all, why would I only want to talk with people who already think exactly like me?”

Glenn Beck adds: “My relationship with Andrew W.K. is a perfect example of how two people can come together on what unites us, and become strange bedfellows. He is open minded, honest, loves his fellow man even though he may disagree with him, and is a natural entertainer. Our mutual audiences have already begun to find commonalities. I think he is the perfect fit for TheBlaze Radio Network.” More...

Pat Robertson: Smack Kids Who Listen To Metal

Pat Robertson - the conservative Christian icon who just keeps on giving - has decided to speak out against children listening to metal music.

In an episode of his show The 700 Club, he advises a parent to smack her 11 year old son around for listening to music that talks about "the beast within" and "the infection in people."

“It doesn’t hurt to smack a little 11-year-old around a little bit,” he stated, going on to add “Say, you behave, you’re not going to listen to that garbage in my house. If you do I’m going to tear it up and break those records or CD or whatever."

“The little kids wouldn’t do that with me, I promise you,” he said. “Big Daddy’s home! Wham! That's why I have such wonderful children.”

Video of the truly bizarre exchange in which two adults laugh about beating children can be seen below.

Varg Vikernes Releases Fantasy RPG

I've utterly failed you Metalunderground readers - despite having books from just about every RPG system in existence and having an unending love for metal, I had absolutely no idea that Burzum's Varg Vikernes actually had his own professional role playing system out and in print, titled Myfarog ("Mythic Fantasy Roleplaying Game").

Unfortunately it looks like you can only get it at this French website and its not available through any of the usual suspects like Amazon or Drive Thru RPG.

A review of the game can be seen below, and you watch Mr. Vikernes himself describing the rules in great detail at the Myfarog website.

Finnleo Saunas To Endorse Jari Mäenpää

Finnleo - Finland's largest supplier of saunas - has announced an endorsement deal with Wintersun frontman Jari Mäenpää. The deal, which includes a deluxe custom sauna with custom lighting, custom benching and multiple wood choices, comes in the the wake of "sauna-gate," the backlash concerning the Mäenpää's recent "social media contemplation" of a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to build a studio for the recording of the long awaited "Time II" album.

The proposed studio plans clearly marked areas for a large sauna, causing an outcry on the band's Facebook page. In two responses - one rivaling the collective writings of Tolstoy and a second matching the length of War & Peace - Mäenpää explained that a sauna is as common as a front door in the land of a thousand lakes and that the Finnish people have the "fairest" and "most delicate skin" due to an over abundance of forestry and darkness (caused by forestry, position of the country and Tuomas Holopainen's tophat).

The deal came about when a group of Wintersun fans who refused to grow old waiting for Wintersun to either render a decision on the fund raising campaign and/or record "Time II," launched a campaign of their own - gathering petition signatures to submit to Finnelo for the endorsement deal. The company was overwhelmed by the submission by the the group known as "Time II Move This Along" - which provided 500 volumes of signatures totaling just over 100,000.

Finnelo president Keith Raisanen commented: "It was a heartwarming outcry of support from a group of fans that deserve something for their 'time.' We contacted Mr. Mäenpää and quickly agreed to provide one of our new InfraSauna products to help ease his mental strain and fatigue and to reduce stress and relax muscles caused by overproducing, underachieving and narcissistic perfectionism."

"Time II Move This Along" spokesman Markus Toivonen only added the following: "I guess there will be no more excuses." More...

MetalSucks Bought Out By TMZ

Metalunderground has discovered through an inside source that a large funds transfer was initiated yesterday between Time Warner and Metalsucks.net – your finest source for metal gossip on all planet Earth – leading to the conclusion the site has been bought out.

Upon contacting the site, we have confirmed now that MetalSucks is officially owned by Time Warner subsidiary TMZ.com. MetalSucks will now apparently be a metal gossip spin-off of the popular celebrity news site.

A source from the site, who refused to go on the record with a name, told us things should proceed essentially exactly the same as they had been before the buy-out, commenting: “We want to assure everyone that whenever a rapper wears a metal band shirt, we will absolutely be the first to break that earth-shatteringly important news. That won't change at all in this merger.”

The unnamed source stated a different change in direction was actually planned prior to the buy offer, stating, “We were planning on ditching all the click bait, needlessly inflammatory headlines and post actual metal news, but you know, then this offer came along...”

The source was adamant fans can expect little to no change in daily operations however, adding, “In no way has this diminished our raging hard on for pretending to hate Emmure but posting about them on a near-daily basis.”

Rumors have circulated that Perez Hilton will be brought on as a guest correspondent. Stay tuned as this breaking story develops.

Judas Priest Responds With Pro-LGBT Compilation

In what has become a near annual tradition, legendary U.K. act Judas Priest announced another compilation release, the 374th in the band's storied career. This one comes in response to the "religious freedom" bills recently passed in Indiana and Arkansas, which many believe is an avenue for businesses to refuse service to the LGBT community.

The release will be called "Hard As Iron: Ram it Down....The Throats Of Congress" will be issued on July 4th via Sony Music. It has been heralded by some as "the most definitive Judas Priest compilation of all time." All proceeds for the release will go directly to the Gay & Lesbian Leadership Institute to fight the passage of the bills in Indiana and Arkansas, as well as proposed bills in a myriad of other states. The album's artwork can be viewed below.

Vocalist Rob Halford commented: "Judas Priest supports the rights of all in the LGBT community to fight these highly discriminatory bills. We hope that the inclusion of classics contained on 'Ram it Down,' within 'Point of Entry,' will have them 'Screaming for Vengeance.'"

Chuck Wolfe, the President of the Gay & Lesbian Leadership Institute, commented: "We are honored to have Judas Priest on our side for this fight."

The track list for "Hard As Iron: Ram it Down....The Throats Of Congress" is:

1. You Say Yes
2. Hard As Iron
3. Eat Me Alive
4. Ram it Down
5. Savage
6. Rapid Fire
7. The Ripper
8. Here Come the Tears
9. Delivering the Goods
10. Screaming For Vengeance
11. Painkiller
12. Love Bites More...

Man Realizes Favorite Band Isn't Good Anymore

In a breakthrough of truly monumental proportions, local man John Kettle has recently come to realize that his favorite band actually isn't any good anymore.

A sinking suspicion started to develop when the band released the first single from its latest album, which received a less-than-positive response from online listeners.

Kettle was enraged upon reading the YouTube comments insisting this new material wasn't as strong as previous releases, with one comment in particular leaving him no choice but to respond.

“My first knee-jerk reaction was to tell him he's worse than Hitler and insist he must love Justin Bieber if he can't appreciate my favorite band,” Kettle said. “But after really listening to the song again and sitting through those atrocious lyrics, I came to the horrible realization that maybe someone else on the Internet with a different opinion than mine might have been correct.”

Working hard to hold back tears, the brave Kettle told us his worst fears have come true: the one band that could do no wrong finally released something that wasn't very good. The visibly emotional Kettle ended our interview by moaning, “I used to tell people on forums that they aren't true fans if they don't love everything that band has put out. Now that's going to happen to ME!”

There's no word yet on how advanced Kettle's false-fan status is, and whether this will interfere with his daily life in any significant way. Stay tuned for more on this breaking story.
