Drummer Joey Jordison Leaves his long term position in Slipknot

It’s been confirmed. Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison has left the band.

The band have taken down their websites front page and left a brief message to their fans about the drummers departure.

Slipknot’s Official Statement

The statement reads: “To our Maggots and fans around the world. It is with great pain but quiet respect, that for personal reasons Joey Jordison and Slipknot are parting ways. We all wish Joey the best in whatever his future holds. We understand that many of you will want to know how and why this has come to be, and we will do our best to respond to these questions in the near future. It is our love for all of you, as well as for the music we create, that spurs us to continue on and move forward with our plans for releasing new material in the next year. We hope that all of you will come to understand this, and we appreciate your continued support while we plan the next phase of the future of Slipknot. Thank you, The ‘Knot.”

The End Of Slipknot

Several other sites have posted the news about Joey Jordison leaving his long time position in Slipknot already. So we’ll try to add more to the conversation than just the statement. But at this stage of the game all we have is speculation and not very many answers. So what do you think guys? What do you believe the reasons for Joey leaving Slipknot are? Was he just fed up of making music? Did he get bored of Slipknot. Do you think there was a personal conflict between him and the rest of the band?

Now that this paradime shift has occurred, what do you think is left for Slipknot? With Grey’s Death and Joey’s Departure is there much of a future left for them? Do you think this might be the end of Slipknot? Or do you think they will carry on despite such iconic members of their band no longer being part of the fold? If you’re a Slipknot fan how do you feel about what has happened? If they do carry on who do you think they’ll choose to replace him? As I said a lot of questions and not many answers, maybe you can help fill in the blanks.

In honour of Slipknot and this yet again sad day in metal music we’ve added my first experience of slipknot from early 2000. Wait and bleed. Enjoy!

A Day To Remember

A Day To Remember

A Day To Remember

A Day To Remember have released an official stream on YouTube of their new album Common Courtesy. On the back of their big court case with the record company Victory Records, A Day To Remember have released Common Courtesy off their own back as a self released album. Don’t let the fool you though, this album pulls no punch, the band have done it their own way exactly how they wanted to and the result is a fine piece of work. Although I haven’t listen to it enough to give it full disclosure yet, it is still on first listen, a great record from the Florida state boys.

Because Common Courtesy is being Self Released by A Day To Remember, it will only be available for purchase through digital platforms through the bands website ADTR.com from Tuesday 8th of October.

About the court case

Victory Records Lawyer Statement

While Victory is disappointed with the ruling, and disagrees with the court’s conclusions, it comes as no surprise. Courts rarely grant negative injunctions of this nature, but the circumstances of this case presented a unique opportunity for such a ruling. Having said that, in denying Victory’s motion, the court’s reasoning actually contained silver linings that significantly favored Victory.

First, the court held that it supports Victory’s argument about the construction of the recording contract – that ADTR is still obligated to deliver two more albums to Victory — “at last equally, if not more so, than that offered by ADTR.” That is the core issue in this case and the only one that really matters in the end, so Victory is heartened that the court agreed with Victory’s position on that core issue.

Also, the sole basis for the court’s denial of the injunction was that Victory would not suffer “irreparable harm” that could not be compensated by money damages if the album were to be self released, in that it has ample evidence to prove its damages against the band (in the form of lost profits if ADTR does proceed to self release Common Courtesy).

That is, even if the band self releases it, Victory is likely to be awarded any profits the band makes on that album, plus additional lost profits suffered by Victory based on the fact that Victory would undeniably do a far better job at marketing the album had Victory released it, which is what Victory is known for and is the reason why ADTR signed with Victory in the first place.

In sum, it is a “successful” defeat in a way, and one which Victory welcomed because of the manner in which the Court rendered its opinion.

This case will proceed to trial, and Victory is looking forward to the opportunity to vindicate the baseless claims filed by ADTR.

Tim Lambesis solicits a hitman to execute his wife

As I lay Dying singer and frontman Tim Lambesis has been arrested for soliciting a hitman to murder his estranged wife who is currently filing for divorce from the vocalist of the Christian heavy metal band.

WTF is going on?

I don’t know if it’s just me but the world truly seems to be turning to shit of late. I’ve lost count of how many public icons have died or been arrested on crazy charges like Murder or Child Abuse in the last few years. The number only seems to be multiplying on a daily basis. We had Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe arrested for Manslaughter a few months ago. Thankfully Acquitted. Lostprophets singer arrested for conspiracy to rape a baby. Jeff Hanneman died only a few days ago. Even the iconic entertainer Rolf Harris has been arrested for child abuse allegations. WTF is going on?

The investigation into the As I lay Dying singer Tim Lambesis began after Lambesis contacted an undercover detective posing as a hitman on the 2nd of May to execute his wife.

According to the report from San Diego Sheriff’s Department, FOX 5 news claim the 32 year old, Tim Lambesis, was arrested and taken into custody without incident on Tuesday (The 7th of May) around 2 p.m. at an Oceanside business in San Diego.

Lambesis was booked into the Vista Detention Facility. He is expected be arraigned sometime later this week.

Although Jan Caldwell, the spokesperson for the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said she was unable to provide details of the case at hand, she did offer the following:

“The information came to us late last week, we acted quickly on it. I believe that we averted a great tragedy.”

Lambesis’ wife, Meggan, filed for divorce on the 20th of September, last year (2012).

As I Lay Dying interview with Tim Lambesis

During an interview with Loudwire in a January of 2013 Lambesis was asked if his humanitarianism provides him with a source of lyrical inspiration. “Yes, it’s definitely a part of my life for me,” he said. “My kids are adopted and I’ve visited their country; they’re from Ethiopia, and that was eye-opening to what the world is really like, at least a third of the world. I think that just influences my entire worldview. Even if I’m not necessarily writing a song about humanitarian work, I’m writing a song about what truly makes us happy in life, and those types of things that have been influenced by my experiences.”

Bill-Clinton-2013

Old Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin in the good old days.

Former president Bill Clinton has had his request for a Led Zeppelin reunion turned down by the band. it’s been revealed that Led Zeppelin turned down according to news from The Pulse Of Radio. Clinton’s request for the band to reunite was in aid of last year’s 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The concert raised over $50 million for victims of the storm. Led Zeppelin’s turning down the offer was reported on a recent episode of CBS’ “60 Minutes“, The show reported on the Robin Hood Foundation which organised the all-star fundraising event.

Bill Clinton Rejected by Led Zeppelin.

Bill Clinton Rejected by Led Zeppelin.

Harvey Weinstein had this great idea that we could enlist Bill Clinton who could convince Led Zeppelin to reunite to perform at the 12-12-12 concert,” Stated David Saltzman, the Robin Hood Foundation’s executive director claiming that Bill Clinton had personally asked the band in Washington, D.C. while they were being presented with the Kennedy Center honor. “Bill Clinton himself asked Led Zeppelin to reunite and they wouldn’t do it.”

If someone like Bill Clinton can’t convince you to reunite for a charity event, I doubt anyone could.

During a press conference to help the promotion of Led Zeppelin’s “Celebration Day” live collection in October, Jimmy Page tried to dispel rumors of a possible Led Zeppelin reunion anytime in the imminent and foreseeable future. Stating “Well, look; at this time four years ago, we’d have been rehearsing to get to the O2,” he said. “In December it’ll be five years since the O2. So, that’s a number of years that pass in between, so that seems unlikely, if there wasn’t a whisper, or a hint that we would get together to do something or other. I’d say even two years ago, or whatever. Seems pretty unlikely, that’s what I think.”

What do you think about Bill Clinton asking Led Zeppelin for a reunion? Do you think it’s a good idea, were they wrong to turn it down. Do you think it would have made any difference who asked them?

Westboro Baptist Facktards

God Hates Metal

God Hates Metal according to Westboro Baptist Church

Westboro Baptist Church are at it again with the horrific announcement that the bastards plan to picket the funeral of late Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman. Claiming that they will sing their “parody” of Ozzy Osbourne‘s “Crazy Train” “at full voice” during the Slayer guitarist’s funeral.

Jeff Hanneman died at approximately 11:00am on Thursday the 2nd of May near his Southern California home. He was just 49. Hanneman was in an area hospital when he suffered liver failure. Due to a terminal illness called necrotising fasciitis which he is thought to have contracted from a spider bite, 2 years earlier.

Necrotising fasciitis is more commonly known as a flesh eating disease, which is caused by a bacterial infection of the deeper layers of skin and subcutaneous tissues.

“Necrotizing fasciitis is quickly progressing, having greater risk of developing in the immunocompromised due to conditions like diabetes, cancer, etc. It is a severe disease of sudden onset and is usually treated immediately with high doses of intravenous antibiotics.” – Wikipedia

Jeff Hanneman of Slayer dies 2nd of May 2013

Jeff Hanneman dead at the age of 49

Slayer fans have become outraged by the news, with social media sites like Facebook daring the church to even try to protest at the event, that they might meet their quick demise. The onslaught of Hate for the church has been universal by the metal community.

Westboro Baptist Church — is fringe group of fundamentalist Christians who continues to make headlines around the world for their extreme anti-gay views and outrageous protests at the funerals of U.S. soldiers, regardless of the soldiers actual sexuality. The so called “Church” first used lyrics from the Ozzy song “Crazy Train” at events surrounding a Supreme Court hearing in 2011. Two daughters of the church’s founder used the paraphrased lyrics from the song at the post-Supreme Court hearing press conference in Washington D.C.

Ozzy shows his disgust for the Westboro Bastard Church

Ozzy commented “I am sickened and disgusted by the use of ‘Crazy Train’ to promote messages of hate and evil by a ‘church,'” in response to the news of his song being used by Westboro Baptist Church.

In a June 2010 during an interview on “Rockline”, Ozzy Osbourne slated the Westboro Baptist Church’s protest of Ronnie James Dio’s funeral. “I thought it was in such bad taste that those people had those banners about Ronnie James Dio. That’s disgusting. They say that we’re the anti-christ. Well, what makes them any better?”

Crazy Train Parody on YouTube

The Westboro Baptist Church has even had the audacity to publicise their awful “parody” of “Crazy Train” on YouTube. I have included it for reference, but I really don’t enjoy sharing anything these worthless excuses for human beings have created.

Westboro Baptist Church’s “Crazy Train” “parody” lyrics:

Amazing, that’s how God rolls.
Millions of people, drowning in woe.
Crazy, it’s much too late.
To speak about love, when you brought on is hate.
Crying about your feelings, or your sin, no shame.

You’re going straight to hell, on a crazy train.
You’re going straight to hell, on a crazy train.

Let’s go!

You listen to preachers, your leaders are fools.
You’re raping false prophets, who make their own rules.
The base is ascending, to rule and control.
The media sells it, and you pay the toll.

The station goes deceiving, their torment you in flames.
You’re going straight to hell, on a crazy train.

We’ve told you your destruction is imminent.
You should have listen to our words.

Isn’t God’s fury?, That’s forced onto them,
The ruling rebellion, God is made to numb.
Crazy, the pride as you well.
Your birth will be brutal, he will say what is fair!

God is not been sleeping, he’s gonna bring the pain.
It’s time for your final ride on this crazy train.
Your final stop is hell on this crazy train.

Other disgusting stuff the Westboro Baptist Church has been up to

The Wall Street Journal describes the Westboro Baptist Church as a “tiny Kansas church who preaches that U.S. deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq are punishment for America’s tolerance of homosexuality and abortion.”

‘You’re Going to Hell,’ ‘Thank God for Dead Soldiers,’ and ‘God Hates You’ are some of Westboro’s favourite slogans to use at their gatherings.

A video of his appearance at the event at GAK (Guitar Amp & Keyboards) in Brighton, U.K. can be seen below. GAK is a shop which <a href=”http://www.soulsanctuarymusic.com&#8221; title=”Soul Sanctuary“>Soul Sanctuary visit fairy regularly, sucks that I didn’t know about this event before hand or I would have made sure to be there.

Phil Demmel and the rest of Machine Head celebrated Demmel’s tenth anniversary as an official member of the band earlier this month.

Phil Demmel joined Machine Head a decade after his previous band, Vio-Lence disbanded. Vio-Lence was originally formed by Robb Flynn, Machine Head’s vocalist and guitarist, and Phil Demmel when they were just teenagers. In 1992 Flynn went on to form Machine Head, then Demmel joined them in 2003.

In February Machine Head fired their bassist Adam Duce. The band’s front-man Robb Flynn explained in a post he made online: “We may have fired Adam on [February 11], but Adam quit Machine Head well over a decade ago. He just never bothered to tell anyone… but we all knew it.” Machine Head recently held auditions for a replacement bassist, but they have not yet made any official announcement as to who.
