MALEVOLENT CREATION – Issue New Album Update





MALEVOLENT CREATION guitarist Phil Fasciana recently checked in with an update regarding their new lineup (Fasciana is the only remaining longtime member) and their plans for their thirteenth studio album. Here’s what he had to say of that:

“So this is the current situation considering Malevolent Creation and the new line up for recording our 13th album and shows to follow. After receiving so many great videos and songs from singers wanting to take over the vocal position after the departure of original vocalist Bret Hoffmann, I finally have found the right man for the job.

I received a few songs from Lee Wollenschlaeger and his solo project Imperial Empire and was so impressed that after a lot of conversations and hearing his own compositions and demo’s of him singing M.C...

VILEDRIVER – Set To Release New Album In December





Eager to impress. It has become increasingly apparent that tech-death wants desperately to be accepted by its older brother, death metal. In recent years, tech death has managed to win the heart of its older, far more experienced sibling. With the bond cemented, the two have united into an unstoppable, all-consuming force – churning out pit-riffs that are as brutal as they are consummate.

Within this camp exists Canada’s VILEDRIVER, a three-piece powerhouse of technical death. Unlike many bands of their ilk, these guys have taken the lessons learned from death metal, and expanded their reach by incorporating touches of progressive grind. Their clinical-yet-chaotic time signatures blend the best of both tech death and grind, yet never at the expense of catchy and memorable riffs.

This p...

TMD Fights For Truth!


CHRIS CORNELL, The Church Of Set & Trump’s Fourth Reich

By Randy “Rocket” Cody

“I’m the devil. I’m here to do the devil’s business.”

– “Tex” Watson, the Manson family

Every citizen in the United States is being lied to on the most epic scale ever. It is your choice to accept the truth or turn your head in the other direction and live in complete denial.

All I can do as a reporter of the immense misfortune currently being heaped upon good Americans of all ethnic backgrounds and political beliefs is do my best to keep educating y’all on what is real and what is not, okay?

There is a lot of disinformation, click bait lies, and straight up bullshit being pushed by 100% of the mainstream news media today, such as Reuters, CNN, FOX, TMZ, and the list goes on.

The non stop cover up...
