KATAKLYSM – Debut New Single





Canadian extreme metal veterans KATAKLYSM have unleashed the first new track from their forthcoming album, Meditations, which is slated for a June 1 release through Nuclear Blast. The new song is titled “Guillotine” and can be streamed HERE.

Vocalist Maurizio Iacono comments: “‘Guillotine’ is a powerful track that holds some of Kataklysm’s most important traits: fierce and fast riffing, melodic accents and groove laden power punches to the gut. We are focused and determined; dedicated to your worst enemy.”

For over a quarter century the monumental vessel of KATAKLYSM has overwhelmed the world with immense, powerful, death metal. Since their formation in 1991 they have uprooted influence in everything from ancient human history to the basic instincts surrounding mortal emotion...

JASTA – New Music Video Released





JASTA has unleashed a new music video the track “Chasing Demons,” which in addition to HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta, of course, also features Howard Jones (Light The Torch, ex-Killswitch Engage). The clip was directed by Paul McGuire and made its debut online HERE.

“I’m excited to get a new Jasta video out, and honored to have worked with the great Howard Jones,” Jasta told Revolver. “His signature vocals bring this track to the next level, and this song has now become a staple in the Jasta set.”

Born James Shanahan in West Haven, Connecticut, Jamey Jasta is best known as the singer for the hardcore band Hatebreed. Not one to rest on his laurels, the prolific frontman has a number of other side projects, including the punk band Icepick and the sludge metal act Kingdom of Sorrow...

The Truth About Pizzagate… Can You Handle It?






The Truth About Pizzagate… Can You Handle It?

By Randy “Rocket” Cody

(part 2 of a 3 part report)

My ongoing independent death investigations for late rockers Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington have taken my readers down some extremely dark paths for sure, but now I am afraid what I am going to report next is going to frighten you worse than ever.

PEDOGATE as it relates to the modern elite child killing ring today known as #Pizzagate, is no doubt the origin of the problem and many of the same key figures involved back when it started out in the eighties with the Franklin Cover Up and Presidio scandals, including the Bush’s, Clinton’s, Michael Aquino and legendary Hollywood director Steven Spielberg, who I fully believe are still involved in systematic child abuse today.

But first let ...

WATAIN – Remove Guitarist Due To Alleged Nazi Salute





Swedish black metal act WATAIN has parted ways (for now at least) with live guitarist Set Teitan (Davide Totaro) after a new photo seen HERE surfaced showing Teitan giving what appears to be a Nazi salute.

The photo in question was forwarded to Metalsucks, who reached out to the band for comment. Watain frontman Erik Danielsson subsequently provided them (via their record label) with the following statement:

“The gesture on that picture was done in jest that’s as much as we have to say about that, but to put an end to this tiresome and time-consuming nonsense the guitarist in question has decided to step aside for a period of time to avoid further hopeless discussions on the subject.

“We furthermore spit upon the ill-willed ignorance of all those who maintain that Watain have any polit...

DEVILDRIVER – Outlaws ‘Til The End Details Revealed





Globally renowned, chart-topping band DEVILDRIVER may be one of the most notable groups in metal, but their personal taste in music reaches far beyond heavy music. Thanks to widely lauded albums like 2005’s epoch-shredding The Fury Of Our Maker’s Hand, 2011’s ante-upping, ultra-brutal Beast and 2016’s acclaimed career peak Trust No One, the band – led by iconic vocalist Dez Fafara – are firmly established as one of the most consistent and best loved bands in modern metal. That said, in 2018, all expectations of who and what DevilDriver are will be torched.

As first teased by Fafara last year, the band’s upcoming full-length album of outlaw country-gone-metal anthems, Outlaws ‘Til The End, will finally see its day.

The highly-anticipated, monstrous collection of savage metal interpret...

“Filming the point-of-view aspect from a tank made this video so much better,” states Matrise. “Instead of performing with instruments, we came up with the idea of each JUNGLE ROT soldier inside their own tank – mercilessly fighting and communicating to each other back and forth like killing machines...
