Report – CHRIS CORNELL, Ascension & 11/11

by Randy “Rocket” Cody

“Really it has to do with kids, people are not defended… one of the things that lacks in our country is the funds to help people. I really think it has to do with justice and protection. And anything with Children always is close to my heart. I do anything I can, any chance I get.”

Chris Cornell

My forthcoming Chris Cornell eBook that will release on CHRIStmas later this year is going to be a game changer for everyone, in my opinion.

ART OF SHOCK – Sign With Century Media Records

Los Angeles based metal band ART OF SHOCK announced signing to Century Media Records. To celebrate, the band have just released their new track “I Cast A Shadow” off their forthcoming album Dark Angeles. Listen to the first song off of the new LP, above.

“This song is about being punished for being yourself,” states Art Of Shock frontman Art Geezar. “It applies to the whole spectrum of the human experience. From every political or religious exercise to every social crusade. You’re a traitor in every movement if you dare to question it in the slightest. It is about not complying with what other people want you to say, do or think and is about being attacked and burnt on the stake for it. Simple ideas can become tyranny if there’s no one there to question them...

MAYHEM – Debut New Music Video

MAYHEM, whose sixth album, Daemon, is available digitally, with a physical release arriving tomorrow, share a video for “Falsified & Hated.”

“This is the first official music video we have released, so indeed some thought went into this,” explains Teloch. “Instead of having us filmed at some dodgy location with instruments not even plugged in, we did something different, in the true tradition of the band. We hired Johan Baath (Watain, Lucifer, etc.) to direct the video and we also were lucky enough to get the infamous Swedish graffiti artist Ziggy Jonas Rasmusson to do his ritualistic paintings for the video.”

“When I was asked to do the very first Mayhem music video, I thought I really had to do something more than just a plain Black Metal video, I wanted to take i...
