Primal Fear

TMD Rocks!

"Another week, another very intensive work in the recording studio – all instruments are recorded, percussion and orchestra parts are recorded. We changed some lyrics and some song titles as always last minute.

Magnus is just on his way back home to Sweden and still left some open mouths in the House Of Music! Not only regarding his phenomenal guitar playing, he added some more stange string instruments and a lot of good vibes to the production!

Ralf, Mat and Dennis are working on the vocal and choir parts – find some new pictures of Ralf in the gallery of our My Space page! Three more days…"

SPINESHANK – Issue Recording Update

Dave Mustaine

 TMD Rocks!

"I just wanted to take the time to inform you of my privilege to be able to make a contribution today to the Door of Faith orphanage in Mexico. Thanks to all of the Net Worth Coffee Brokers customers and 'Mustaine Coffee Crew Members,' we were able to come through for the orphanage again this year.

Like I mentioned in my post in the Members Only area of the Coffee Crew site, 'I wanted to take this time to point out to you the tremendous success that we have had with Net Worth Coffee Brokers, Inc.,' and 'inform you that we are able to make a sizeable donation to the orphanage before the end of the year.' We were also able to purchase a large order again this year from Elaine Hinton and our friends at Hasbro Toys."

"I am writing to wish everyone happy holidays and seasons greetings, and not forgetting a happy new metal year! 

2008 has been a fantastic metal year as you know and next year is also kicking off with a bang – not just with Priest on the road again but  we will also be getting Metallica, AC/DC and tons more bands again.

Spineshank

TMD Rocks!

"Hey there dudes and dudettes, here's a quick update on the status of Spineshank. We had one of our guerilla writing/recording sessions all week. The record is definitely shaping up and trust me when I say that this is going to be by far the best Spineshank record yet. At this point we have about 10 songs completely finished. Some are recorded properly, some are just really shitty recordings. As Tommy said before we're planning on writing 20-22 songs total and then picking the best 12 or so and releasing them. All of us are firing on all cylinders and we're super excited about this record. Jay Baumgardner will be done mixing a coupla songs for us next week, so we'll post something up very soon. Also we'll have a new line of merch coming out it should all be done by January...
