BLACK SABBATH – Post “Paranoid” Footage From Final Gig





BLACK SABBATH have shared live footage of the classic song “Paranoid”, which comes from their new farewell live release, “The End”. This performance of the song closed out the band’s final live show, which took place February 4th, 2017 at the Genting Arena in Birmingham, England. “The End” will be released on November 17th.

Black Sabbath has been so influential in the development of heavy metal rock music as to be a defining force in the style. The group took the blues-rock sound of late ’60s acts like Cream, Blue Cheer, and Vanilla Fudge to its logical conclusion, slowing the tempo, accentuating the bass, and emphasizing screaming guitar solos and howled vocals full of lyrics expressing mental anguish and macabre fantasies...

BATUSHKA – Signs With Metal Blade Records





Polish black metal act BATUSHKA is the latest addition to Metal Blade Records’ U.S. roster.

Pronounced “Batjushka,” the band’s Cyrillic name means “father” and is used to address an Eastern Orthodox priest. Despite the themes and imagery, they are not a Christian act. The identities of the members are unknown, but they are involved with other bands. Their live lineup contains eight members.

On November 3rd, Metal Blade will reissue the debut full length “Litourgiya,” which was initially released in 2015 in limited quantity (500 copies) via Witching Hour Productions. Despite its relative cult status, the record earned critical accolades from journalists “in the know.”

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER – Debuts At #35 On Billboard 200





Nightbringers, the new album from Michigan melodic death metal act, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, has debuted at No. 35 on the Billboard 200 chart on the strength of first-week sales of roughly 12,000 in the United States. Meanwhile, the record also landed at No. 9 on the Top Album Sales chart, No. 3 on the Hard Rock Albums chart, and No. 3 on the Independent Albums chart.

The showing adds yet another entry to The Black Dahlia Murder’s impressive streak of five consecutive albums that have debuted in the Top 50 on the Billboard 200 and sold at least (roughly) 10,000 copies in their first week.

Notably, Nightbringers’ debut improves upon that of the band’s previous album, 2015’s Abysmal, which sold 10,000 in its first week and bowed at No. 45 on the Billboard 200.

CANNIBAL CORPSE – New Song Debut





CANNIBAL CORPSE has debuted the second single from their forthcoming album, Red Before Black, which is scheduled for a November 3 release. The record’s title track made its online debut today.

Formed in 1988, Buffalo born/Tampa raised Cannibal Corpse helped found, manipulate and transcend the very boundaries of death metal beginning with the scandalously controversial debut, Eaten Back To Life. Raising the eyebrows of inquisitive metalheads and incensed parents and politicians, the record – produced by Scott Burns at the now renowned Morrisound Studios – was more extreme and confrontational than anything the metal genre had ever known...

CHESTER BENNINGTON, The Pyramid & Masonic Child ID



TMD Fights For Truth!


CHESTER BENNINGTON, The Pyramid & Masonic Child ID

By Randy “Rocket” Cody

My research into the ongoing PEDOGATE scandal AKA “Pizzagate” has uncovered the Masonic Child ID Program via A Call For Uprising Channel.

Yes, the North American Masonic Lodges are now working with law enforcement implementing a new program to track your children!

Tracking us through our phones is not enough. Now it’s time for:

THE MASONIC ID PROGRAM FOR KIDS!

They want the DNA of your child on record! This is another direct tie to the pedophile rings that are killing an estimated 50,000 kids per year in America. WAKE UP!!!

Parents are falling for the deception, giving up all this info about their child, so the pedophile elite
can ‘body snatch’ them later.

Don’t forget. Beautiful three year old Madeleine M...
