BODYSNATCHER – Debut New Music Video

BODYSNATCHER posted a new music video for their track “Twelve/Seventeen“, you can check it out above. The band’s guitarist Kyle Carter commented:

“‘Twelve/seventeen‘ is a very important song to me because it actually helped me let out emotions I had been holding in for so long. The song is about my mom losing her battle with breast cancer when I was only twelve years old. It’s called ‘twelve/seventeen‘ not because that’s the day she passed, but because that was her birthday.

We included the Christmas tree in the video because it was her tradition to have friends over and decorate it for her birthday every year. The clips in the video are also all real home movie clips, and that was very important to me that we included those...

THE ROCKET REPORT – “Snuff” Films Are Real

Legendary rock n roll journalist, Randy “Rocket” Cody, has posted a shocking new video report, featuring rare scenes of human mutilation as depicted in “snuff” films. Check it out down below.

Rocket comments:

“I put together this report to help educate others as to what is really going on in this world, so that maybe it can help save lives. All I ask is that you share the video with friends and family. It was blocked on YouTube so it definitely has started its own controversy.”

“In my previous report detailing the legendary carnage discovered back in 1969 at 10050 Cielo Drive, I detailed for my readers the extremely dark world of Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA), and that a highly secretive Hollywood coven, who is said to include among its membership, actors Jack Nicholson, W...

SEPULTURA – Debut New Song

Another new track from the forthcoming SEPULTURA album, Quadra (slated to be out February 7), has been unleashed online. The song “Last Time” can be streamed above.

Guitarist Andreas Kisser comments on the new single: “‘Last Time’ is a song that many can relate to or have encountered people that are trying to overcome an addiction. In the times that we live in it’s a struggle that we all must face.”

It goes without saying that the global metal scene would not be the same without Sepultura. For 35 years now, the Brazilian icons are not only a band revered worldwide; they have been, are and forever will be at the very forefront of Thrash Metal, trailblazing ever since they released their long-since legendary debut album “Morbid Visions” in 1986.

While quickly es...

KANSEIL – New Acoustic EP Details Revealed

Following up the highly acclaimed sophomore album ‘Fulìsche’, Italian folk metallers KANSEIL have inked a new record deal with ROCKSHOTS RECORDS for the release of their first acoustic EP: Cant Del Corlo(Chant of the Spinning Wheel). The record is a concept album inspired by the four seasons, a perennial cycle that escapes human control. The spinning wheel (‘Corlo’) becomes the eternal wheel that makes us mortal. Four epic songs with extra atmospheric intro and outro allow the listener to dive into the mood of the seasons, becoming inevitably part of the endless flow of time.

Even if the acoustic mood has always been pervading KANSEIL’s creations, they wanted to dare a step further by releasing a record without any electric instrument. 

Cant Del Corlo is s...

Reportedly the rotund MÖTLEY CRÜE vocalist was crowned #1 on the annual list of the 100 men who made rock hotter. It seems like a bad joke though, right? I mean, who in their right mind would do such a thing and not expect to be laughed at?

“..and the honors go to exactly who you thought they would (if you keep up with celebrity news): Vince Neil, Mötley Crüe lead singer. For the second year in a row, our gorgeous hottie beat out some other equally hot men for the number one spot! And we can’t say we disagree!”

Within minutes of Vince Neil being announced as this year’s winner, it had become the top trending topic on Twitter:...

INNO – Sign With Time To Kill Records

Italian dark metal act INNO have joined forces with Time To Kill Records for the release of their debut album in early 2020.

Emerging out of the Roman metal scene in 2017, INNO was founded by four veterans with the aim to create something that would differ from their past experiences within the metal world. 

After spending a few months exploring their dormant influences, INNO came to shape a dark, doomy, heavy and progressive sound akin to eclectic acts such as Katatonia and The Gathering.

Their first album was produced by the band and mixed by Marco Mastrobuono and Giuseppe Orlando in Rome.

The effort will see the light of day in the first months of 2020. Watch out for more news and audio previews in the weeks ahead!

Line-up:

Elisabetta Marchetti (ex Stormlord, ex Riti Occu...
