BLOODBOUND – Streaming New Track

Swedish power metal act, BLOODBOUND, are streaming the track “Stand And Fight”, featured on the upcoming War Of Dragons album, out this Friday, February 24th, via AFM Records. The song is available for streaming HERE.

It’s been an impressive journey for Bloodbound: The Swedish power metal commando has become more and more popular in recent years. All this falls back on talent and hard work. Since 2005 Bloodbound have not only released six studio albums and a live DVD/CD, they have also toured with giants such as Sabaton, HammerFall and U.D.O. – in the process winning over a very devoted and loyal fanbase of metalheads. So it doesn’t come as a surprise that Bloodbound’s next career move would be a headlining tour now – armed with their brand new studio album, War Of Dragons...

METALLICA – Is Lady Gaga Going To Join The Band?

As preposterous as that headline sounds, the truth is METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich has been going around talking about a potential future collaboration with the international pop superstar. What does that mean exactly? Will the biggest metal band ever do something along the lines of what they did when they released the panned collaborative album entitled LuLu with late singer-songwriter Lou Reed in 2011?

Will they call it GuGu? Or do they have something even bigger planned for us all?

Since the 2017 Grammy performance with Lady Gaga, which it’s clear to see was a total PR disaster, even if they did plan the whole ‘mic fail’ to draw publicity to their name as they prepare to head out on the road soon, longtime fans online are voicing their opinions of absolute detest and hatred...
