TMD Rocks!

As the world awaits the toxicology report of late SOUNDGARDEN vocalist Chris Cornell, whose death on May 18th was ruled a suicide by hanging, many other questions surrounding the tragic demise of the popular singer remains unanswered.

“You were the best father, husband and son-in-law. Your patience, empathy and love always showed through.

I’m sorry you were alone, and I know that was not you, my sweet Christopher. Your children know that too, so you can rest in peace.

***UPDATE: Bruce Corbitt today shared this post:

“For those that couldn’t watch video. I’ll make this short for now and give more details later.
I was just told I more than likely have stage 3 Esophagus cancer. Still a chance for stage 2. I get into more details on what that means and our plan of attack soon. But after much discussion with the doctors and specialist. ..they’ve told me there’s no chance within in any reasonable time that I’ll ever be able to perform again.

So it breaks my heart at this time that I’m forced to announce my retirement from singing. I’m sorry to all of my band mates for letting them down. I’m devastated with all of this hitting me so fast. I’m still in shock. Thanks for all of the great support all these years...

BISON – Premiere New Song





BISON have unleashed a aong premiere from their forthcoming new album, “You Are Not The Ocean You Are The Patient“. You can catch a stream of “Until The Earth Is Empty” from the release HERE. It’s slated to be out July 7th via Pelagic Records.

In the great Canadian spirit of loss and heart ache, from the west coast melting pot of shit and failure; in a country based on terrifying distance and lonesome, stoic suffering comes this noise. Violent like a cancer, an assault on anything that is good in the world. A heartfelt repulsion towards anything that could bring pleasure, because with happiness we suffer truly – the wanting of more. Gluttons! Pigs to the trough! Lead us to treachery! Lead us to solitude!

JAAMES, DAAN, SHAANE, MAATT

CHRIS CORNELL’s Bodyguard: Is He The Assassin?





Although not named a suspect yet, of a death that has not ever been officially ruled a homicide, there are certainly some suspicious things to look at surrounding the bodyguard of late SOUNDGARDEN vocalist Chris Cornell. Yes, the medical examiner ruled this past week that Chris died due to hanging himself (although the complete toxicology report has not been done yet)… but what if the man paid to protect one of the world’s greatest rock stars was actually the lead assassin in the plot to kill the singer?

The bodyguard is named Martin Kirsten.

His name might seem familiar to some since at one point he was linked romantically to Heidi Klum. In 2014, they ended their 18-month romance and according to RadarOnline the supermodel played the role of “sugar mama” following the breakup...
