Charlie’s Angels, Snuff Flicks & Satan’s Rock Army!



TMD Rocks!


Charlie’s Angels, Snuff Flicks & Satan’s Rock Army!

By Randy “Rocket” Cody

Snuff film: a genre of motion pictures in which a person is actually murdered or commits suicide on film.

This is worse than anything you can possibly imagine. While they are certainly next to impossible to find yourself, the sickening truth is, yes, snuff films do exist but they are typically ‘custom made’ for very rich people to keep in their lone possession.

In a prior article I wrote, I tied the Manson family to the secret CIA run film production facility called Wonderland located on Lookout mountain in Laurel Canyon...

MARTY FRIEDMAN – New Music Video Released





Former MEGADETH lead guitarist Marty Friedman released his stunning, critically-acclaimed full-length opus, Wall Of Sound, this past summer via Prosthetic Records.

Marty Friedman has now revealed a second music video from Wall Of Sound, this time for the track “Miracle.” The track tells the story of Marty’s personal journey from an everyday kid to virtuoso, through a series of candid family home videos and photos from the Friedman family. Watch the video down below.

“Once you`ve grown up in this complicated world, it`s easy to forget the simpler times that were so important in making you who you are now, as well as the people in your family who put up with all of the loud music, smoke and noise coming from your bedroom, and all the other BS that you put them through,” says Friedman...

WOLFSHEAD – New Lyric Video Released





Finnish metallers WOLFSHEAD have unleashed their new album “Leaden”, out now in North America via Rockshots and was earlier released in Europe one October 27th. WOLFHEAD’s style is pure old school heavy metal, heavy guitar riffs, growling bass, pounding drums with bluesy, leather-lunged whisky-scented vocals on top. Taking their main influences from such acts as Black Sabbath, Motörhead, Venom and the whole NWOBHM movement, WOLFSHEAD manages to combine almost everything from heavy rock music from between 1967 and 1985 to their own unique blend of doom metal. They write songs about lycanthropy, the living dead, witch hunts, Cthulhu Mythos and of course, heavy metal itself.

Check out the new lyric Video – Division Of The Damned HERE.

DIMEBAG, The Witches Sabbath & MK Ultra Killing Machines



TMD Fights For Truth!


DIMEBAG, The Witches Sabbath & MK Ultra Killing Machines

(part 1 of a 3 part report)

By Randy “Rocket” Cody

DAMAGE: …loss or harm resulting from injury to person.

PLAN: … a set of decisions about how to do something in the future.

My debut three part investigative report on late PANTERA/DAMAGEPLAN guitarist, Dimebag Darrell Abbott, generated a heavy response. A lot of fans are interested in my digging deeper into the story so that’s exactly what I am going to do.

In publishing this first part of my investigative report on the 13 year anniversary today of when Dimebag and the other shooting massacre victims at Alrosa Villa on Dec 8, 2004 lost their lives, I want us to remember that they were all innocent human beings…including Nathan Gale.

I believe Gale was a lifelong victim of CIA ...

CARCASS – Working On New Material





Extreme metal act CARCASS has “tons” of new material and hopes to soon begin demoing material for their next studio album and follow-up to 2013’s Surgical Steel. Guitarist and co-founder Bill Steer was recently interviewed by Israeli radio show “Met Al Metal” and Steer had this to say regarding plans for the new record:

“There is a plan of a kind — purely in terms of working on material. I mean, we haven’t booked any studios or anything, ’cause we’re really not that far down the line. It’s been five years or so of regular travel. We’ve been away so much. We’ve done five or six American tours off this record, so there hasn’t been a huge amount of time to do that kind of work in between...

Drummer Ronnie Bergerståhl according to GRAVE is no longer in the band. Grave addressed the situation via Facebook after fans had noticed Bergerståhl hadn’t been with the band live throughout 2017. Read what Grave have to say about it below:

“To set the record straight.

There has been circulating rumours about our drummer and why he has not been with us on all shows this year.

We are unhappy to inform you that we have parted ways with our drummer Ronnie Bergerstål.

After being a part of Grave for more than 10 years he will surely leave a big hole that needs to be filled.

“This is not the place to discuss or speculate about why we have decided to part ways”

We wish you all the best Ronnie.

//Ola, Tobias & Mika”

SOULFLY – To Enter The Studio In January





Max Cavalera has told Backstage Axxess that SOULFLY have booked studio time in January for their new album with producer Josh Wilbur (Lamb Of God, Gojira). He said of that:

“I’m actually writing right now. I’m collecting the riffs right now and getting the ideas. We are already kind of booked for January with Josh Wilbur, the producer of Lamb Of God and Gojira and Killer Be Killed. I think he’ll be great for the Soulfly record; he’s a great producer.

I’m excited, because I think the album will have a little bit of a return to some tribal sounds that I haven’t done since ‘Prophecy‘. So that’ll be cool, to return to some of that. And then the rest of the album will be a continuation of ‘Archangel‘; a lot of people like ‘Archangel‘.

And, of course, I think that...
