Megazombie Tour

Rob Zombie and Dave Mustaine have one thing in common. They’re both involved in unintentionally hilarious movies. Dave was in Some Kind of Monster, Rob directed a few ‘horror’ films.

But now the guys have two things in common: They’re touring together!

These are the dates:

May 11 – Holmdel, NJ @ PNC Bank Arts Center
May 12 – Scranton, PA @ Toyota Pavilion
May 16 – Pittsburgh, PA @ Stage AE
May 18 – Grand Rapids, MI @ The Deltaplex
May 20 – Columbus, OH @ Rock On The Range
May 22 – La Crosse, WI @ La Crosse Center
May 24 – Sioux City, IA @ Tyson Center
May 25 – Wichita, KS @ Hartman Arena
May 26 – Pryor, OK @ Rocklahoma

I’m seeing Megadeth again this summer. Not much else to say, really. I just am.


Beat it, John 5

John 5

John 5, the “awesome” guitarist that plays in not-so-awesome bands (ex-Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie), has a new album coming out. No one knows exactly why, but he’s offering the first single for purchase on Amazon, and it’s a cover of Micheal Jackson’s hit Beat It.

You can hear a preview there, and while the song sounds decent, his announcement for the new album isn’t:

I have an album called ‘God Told Me To’ [coming out] and it’s half heavy and it’s half acoustic, which I’ve never done before. I’m doing a cover of Michael Jacksons’s ‘Beat It’, an instrumental version of it. And it’s gonna be amazing. I’m really excited about this record ’cause of the acoustic stuff, ’cause I’ve never done that before. And it’s gonne be awesome. I’m so excited for this to come out. I think I’m gonna put a [making-of] DVD out with it. People always like to see how I do things and stuff.

Usually when someone throws around words like awesome and amazing, it’s us, talking about this site. And that’s cool because we’re a bunch of assholes and we admit it. This guy is actually serious. You can see the cover for the single after the jump.


Tuesday Trivia: Metal games


Hey, what’s your favorite metal game? Mine include:

  • moshing with metal attachements on my boots
  • throwing a glass beer bottle at a concert behind me and seeing how many people bleed
  • kicking a wigger

I’m kidding of course. Except maybe for the last one. The games we’ll be covering today have nothing to do with concerts. In fact, they’re my favorite games — the ones that don’t make you leave the house. Make the jump and get familiar with some of the heavy metal video games.


Metalheadlines: Boring Tuesday edition

We’ve had a lot of news today, but make no mistake about it, it’s still been a shit day. So enjoy these boring headlines as there’s not much else to post right now.

Machine Head‘s Robb Flynn (pictured above) says he doesn’t time songs when he’s writing them with his band. They’re just going off the vibe. He also calls Metallica their masters.

Anthrax‘s Worship Music album has a track list, at least according to Amazon.com. Don’t forget, they also have an album cover and a release date.

Meshuggah should buy me a new keyboard, because their names are a fucking mess. Guitarist Mårten Hagström (what?) talked to some Romanian chick about their upcoming album. I didn’t really read the interview, and neither should you.

This Is Hell have entered the studio for a new album. According to their vocalist, ‘they can’t wait’ — Neither can I. I want the record out as soon as possible, because I want to stop wanting to avoid music sites in fear of having to listen to it.

Yngwie Malmsteen has such an ego, he makes Dave Mustaine look like Gandhi. Apparently he’s touring North America now, so you can check out the dates right here. Problem is, I don’t know if those are concert dates, or just McDonald’s restaurants Yngwie plans to eat at.

Phil Labonte of All That Remains is auctioning his shoes. Now, I don’t want to be mean, cause this is for charity, but who the hell would pay a few hundred bucks for used footwear? If you can answer that question, then go here and start bidding.

Rob Zombie says he doesn’t really think of music when he’s not working on it. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t think of music, ever, and he has 4 studio albums that stand behind that statement.

That’s it for now, join us next time for more boring fucking headlines.

Rob Zombie ain’t no Sellout yo

Rob Zombie, otherwise known as ‘that dude from the 90s’ (no, not Fred Durst), has defended his decision to get behind the camera for a commercial for laundry detergent Woolite and says he isn’t a sell out.

Well it’s not like he’s biased though, and I’m sure he didn’t take a huge payment from the company for the commercial. Nah, he did it out of the goodness of his little zombie heart, bless him.

More crap at Blabbermouth.
