Rush drummer gets DVD

Say what you will about Rush or their music, but Neil Peart is an amazing drummer.

His new instructional DVD will be out this month, and if you like drums, you should probably get it. Watching this guy play makes my day.

He actually taught God how to play drums! I keed, I keed, there is no God…


Enslaved get their cover on

The Norwegian extreme Progressive Metal monsters, Enslaved, recently played a special show on May 29 at the Henie Onstad Art Centre in Oslo.

What made the show so special, I hear you ask? And you’d be right to ask that considering my absence. Well, knowing the huge wealth of influences the band have, Enslaved were asked to provide a special setlist of covers as well as original songs. The band covered a range of artists, including Faith No More, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Rush and King Crimson. A band doing covers? What an original concept.

You can check out videos of their covers of Led Zeppelin‘s ‘Immigrant Song’ and King Crimson‘s ‘Red’ after the jump.


Friday headlines and shit…

Floridian Metallica cover band metal band Trivium (pictured above) finished recording their new album. Where do you think they recorded it? Florida, duh. There’s some footage of Matt Heafy recording vocals, so if you want to see it, make the jump off a bridge.

Unearth, the band whose name sounds like something Al Gore would preach about, are also recording an album. It’s called ‘Darkness In The Light‘ and it’s coming out this summer. I wish all bands would name their albums with an oxymoron. Can you imagine Slayer? ‘Kerry King Slim.’

Another band that starts with the prefix ‘un-,’ Unexpect, is releasing an album. It’s called ‘Fables Of The Sleepless Empire‘ and it sounds like something Peter Jackson would direct. Track listing and artwork here.

Geddy Lee of Rush is also preaching about a new album. Gee, is he gonna use  new album pep clichés  like ‘heavier’ and ‘diverse’? You betcha.

There is pro footage of Accept performing ‘Neon Nights’ at Hammerfest and boy, I sure ain’t excited about it. In fact, who are these guys? Make the jump for the video if you’ve ever heard of them.

Speaking of bands you’ve never heard of, Communic also have a new album out called ‘The Bottom Deep.’ I could tell you when it’s coming out and what the tracks are, but I’m not gonna. 8==D


You should listen to Rush

In 1981, Rush released  their eighth studio album ‘Moving Pictures,’ which was hugely successful worldwide, making it the most commercially successful Rush album to date .  Flash-forward thirty years, ‘Moving Pictures’ will be released again on April 5th, this time it will have a 5.1 surround sound remix to as well as other little bonus features.

I’d say this album is perfect for you young ones that have no idea who Rush are.  What makes them so great, you ask?  Originality, constantly making great albums, accomplished musicians with one of the best drummers ever and you can’t forget Geddy Lee sounding like an old elderly woman. Those are a few reasons why Rush are a great band.  More importantly for metal, they probably have influenced this genre more than any other rock band (AC/DC fans, don’t get upset, your band is second or maybe Kiss? Whatever).

Check out Blabbermouth for a lot more information regarding this upcoming release.
