Thanks for posting Vail! Well, I wasn't as bored by this as El Dorado, but it still didn't really do anything for me......

It's kinda funny how the sound effects are louder than the song itself.

Just saw "The Final Frontier" video all the way through and the song is absolutely terrible.  Its "BORING" its weak and it sucks. This once great band is washed up,they are "pathetic" and they are mother fucking "overrated" big time!!!! Have a listen for yourselves,this shit band is getting worse! The song itself is worse than El Dorado wich is ridiculous,and the track( "The Final Frontier") is track #1 off the cd with El Dorado #2 so this pretty much sums up the rest of the album wich will obviously be a fucking JOKE.  This band can't write "QUALITY HEAVY METAL" anymore,they fuckin suck and I'm tired of hearing about thier name,they are just as shitty as Metallica,and thats pretty shitty!

Immortal - First Time On DVD

Norwegian black metallers IMMORTAL will release a concert DVD, "The Seventh Date Of Blashyrkh", on August 6 via Nuclear Blast. The disc will include professionally filmed video footage of the band's headlining performance at the 2007 edition of the Wacken Open Air festival, which was held August 2-4, 2007 in Wacken, Germany.

A trailer for the DVD can be viewed below.

In a recent interview with, IMMORTAL's Demonaz stated about the progress of the songwriting sessions for the follow-up to last year's "All Shall Fall", "We already have three songs for the next album. We'll be working on the album this year. And we have material for a lot of other songs, so maybe in August we'll be finished with half the album. But we haven't come so far that I can see the end of the album."

He continued, "I think we'll try to work with the songs and make them classic IMMORTAL songs.

"The next album will be different than 'All Shall Fall'. I think the songs will come off as one package.

"Every album is different for us, but we won't try too many new things. We'll stick to the plan and make the music we like.

"Don't expect something revolutionary. (laughs)"

"All Shall Fall" sold around 3,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 162 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD landed at No. 7 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

"All Shall Fall" entered the German chart at position No. 33 and Finnish chart at No. 20. In the band's home country, the CD landed at No. 23 in its opening week.

"All Shall Fall" was released in North America on October 6, 2009 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD, which was issued in Europe on September 25, 2009, was recorded at Grieghallen and Abyss studios in Norway and Sweden, respectively.

The "Blashyrkh Limited Edition Bag" version of "All Shall Fall" includes:

* Digipak version of "All Shall Fall"

...and I am still invincible! BWAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just kidding, just kidding...
[Head banger] Thursday, July 01, 2010 7:30:01 AM 

here you can get learners at 14, a conditional licence at 16 and a full licence a year later (regardless of how old you were when you got the conditonal)

I think that young learners still have more fear so start out more cautious.  of course from 16 to 21 they all think they are invincible, but what do you do?

[joedraper] Thursday, July 01, 2010 12:55:43 AM 
Sometimes I think being a little older when you get your license is a good thing. I mean, reason has kicked in, you have less of a sense of being invincable and you are wiser to learning. Here it is only possible to get your drivers when you are 18. You can get a learners permit at 17 but you have to drive with a licensed driver next to you.

Rust In Peace: Live DVD Announced

The final night of MEGADETH's historic month-long "Rust In Peace" 20th anniversary tour has been captured for the upcoming "Rust In Peace Live" Blu-ray, DVD and CD, due out September 7 on Shout! Factory.

On March 31, 2010, at this incredibly special show at the legendary Hollywood Palladium, not far from where Dave Mustaine formed the band in 1983, MEGADETH played their landmark, genre-defining 1990 "Rust In Peace" album in its entirety, in addition to other MEGADETH favorites. "Rust In Peace Live" also marks the return of original bassist David Ellefson (MEGADETH 1983-2002) to the iconic multi-platinum group after eight years. Ellefson (bass), joins Mustaine (lead vocals, guitar), Shawn Drover (drums) and Chris Broderick (guitar).

"Rust In Peace Live" features the entire "Rust In Peace" track listing, including all-time classics "Holy Wars...The Punishment Due" and "Hangar 18" along with bonus fan favorites from various other MEGADETH releases such as "Symphony For Destruction", "Peace Sells" and "Skin O' My Teeth".

MEGADETH founder/frontman/guitarist Dave Mustaine explains, "We are pumped to be able to share the 'RIP Live' concert with you all around the world. The anniversary and David Ellefson coming back was better than a facelift and a bottle of Viagra for old [MEGADETH mascot] Vic."

The 80-minute "Rust In Peace Live" DVD (5.1 Dolby Surround 16:9 Widescreen) and Blu-ray (5.1 DTS Master Audio 1080p High Definition) were directed by Kerry Asmussen (GREEN DAY, JAY-Z, Coachella). The DVD and Blu-ray will also include behind-the-scenes footage, including a rare glimpse of the band rehearsing in their dressing room as they prepare to take the stage.

"Rust In Peace" is considered one of the best metal albums of all time by fans and critics and debuted at #23 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart in the U.S. and #8 in the U.K. The album showcased a much tighter sound, with Mustaine's writing style adopting a rhythmically complex progressive edge, prompting All Music Guide to cite "Rust In Peace" as "MEGADETH's strongest musical effort." The album received Grammy nominations in 1990 and 1991 for "Best Metal Performance." Emphasizing the massive impact of "Rust In Peace" in the July 2010 issue of Guitar World, writer Richard Bienstock calls it "one of the pinnacles of the first wave of thrash metal." He continues, "A defining quality of MEGADETH's sound — and the one that perhaps most sets them apart from their 'Big Four' thrash brethren, METALLICA, SLAYER and ANTHRAX — has always been the band's fiery mix of speed-metal ferocity and progressive instrumental virtuosity… nowhere has this combination been displayed better than on 'Rust In Peace'."

The full track listing for the "Rust In Peace Live" CD, DVD and Blu-ray is as follows:

"Rust In Peace" Live:

01. Holy Wars...The Punishment Due
02. Hangar 18
03. Take No Prisoners
04. Five Magics
05. Poison Was The Cure
06. Lucretia
07. Tornado Of Souls
08. Dawn Patrol
09. Rust In Peace...Polaris

Bonus Content:

10. Skin O' My Teeth (Countdown To Extinction)
11. In My Darkest Hour (So Far, So Good…So What!)
12. She-Wolf (Cryptic Writings)
13. Trust (Cryptic Writings)
14. Symphony Of Destruction (Countdown To Extinction)
15. Peace Sells (Peace Sells…But Who's Buying?)
16. Holy Wars – Reprise (Rust In Peace)

Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, And Anthrax Perform "Am I Evil?" On Stage Together

View it here:

Members of SLAYER, MEGADETH and ANTHRAX joined METALLICA on stage earlier tonight (Tuesday, June 22) in Sofia, Bulgaria to perform the DIAMOND HEAD classic "Am I Evil?" METALLICA's James Hetfield, MEGADETH's Dave Mustaine and ANTHRAX's Joey Belladonna all took turns singing, with various other bandmembers playing guitar, bass and pounding on snare drums.

"After 29 years of doing this to reach this apex is just so fucking cool," tweeted ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian moments after the performance. "It was a monumental moment of epic proportions. I'm so high from the experience I can't sleep."

The last time Mustaine performed with METALLICA was on April 9, 1983 at the legendary Brooklyn, New York club L'Amour. He was unceremoniously fired by the band just weeks before they entered the studio to record their debut album, "Kill 'Em All", and was replaced by former EXODUS axeman Kirk Hammett.

***UPDATE: First photos and low-quality video footage of the performance can be viewed below.***

NOTE: All photos below courtesy of

METALLICA's setlist was as follows:

01. Creeping Death
02. For Whom The Bell Tolls
03. Fuel
04. Harvester Of Sorrow
05. Fade To Black
06. That Was Just Your Life
07. Cyanide
08. Sad But True
09. Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
10. All Nightmare Long
11. One
12. Master Of Puppets
13. Blackened
14. Nothing Else Matters
15. Enter Sandman
- - - - - - - -
16. Am I Evil? (w/ Big Four)
17. Hit The Lights
18. Seek and Destroy

Today's "Big Four" show, as part of the Sonisphere festival, will be beamed to more than 450 movie theatres in more than 140 markets in the U.S., along with cities in Europe, Canada and Latin America. In addition, it is being recorded for a forthcoming "Big Four" DVD.

The concert will be broadcast to theatres in high definition. Delayed screenings are planned for Australia, South Africa and New Zealand.

METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH and ANTHRAX — the so-called "Big Four" of 1980s thrash metal — played together for the first time in history last Wednesday night (June 16) in front of 81,000 fans at the Sonisphere festival at Bemowo Airport in Warsaw, Poland.

Ronnie James Dio Tribute Concert Announced

On May 16, Ronnie James Dio passed away and the world of music mourned the loss of the greatest voice of heavy metal.

Dio was a truly iconic figure in music, whose work with ELF, RAINBOW, BLACK SABBATH, DIO and most recently, HEAVEN & HELL defined a genre.

HEAVEN & HELL was set to be on the road in Europe this summer when news came through that despite the amazing progress he was making Ronnie wouldn't be well enough to tour and those shows were canceled. But now, remaining members Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice are set to play a one-off show to celebrate his life and work. According to, the band will be completed by Glenn Hughes (BLACK SABBATH, DEEP PURPLE, TRAPEZE) and Jorn Lande (MASTERPLAN) who will both contribute vocals.

Hughes was a close friend of Ronnie's for many years and performed a musical tribute at Ronnie's funeral service in Los Angeles.

Although Norwegian Jorn Lande is best known as the vocalist for power metal band MASTERPLAN, he has also released many solo albums, including a tribute to Ronnie.

The concert promises to be a fitting celebration to a man that the metal scene owes so much.

"It's going to be a very emotional occasion," said Butler in a statement.

"Ronnie loved his fans like no one else I know — and they loved him. It will be a privilege doing a gig in honor of his memory, and to help towards his charity. Above all, I hope it encourages people to have regular check-ups for this disease. Early detection is vital, and greatly improves the chance of a cure.

"I know everyone has heard that a million times before, but seeing one of your best friends die, because we all think we're immune from this disease, really brings it home.

"Do it for yourself, your family, your friends. Ronnie would be proud of you."

Tony Iommi added: "Ronnie's passing has left a huge hole. We hadn't anywhere near finished what we set out to do as a band together. He was so looking forward to the European tour and we hope this appearance will go some way to fulfilling that."

The Ronnie James Dio "Stand Up And Shout" Cancer Fund program description:

* The fund is committed to the early detection and prevention of cancer through facilitating access to medical screening and medical educational programs.

* The fund supports programs designed to integrate medical knowledge into local communities such as cancer screening programs, education on nutrition in cancer prevention, exercise and overall wellness."

* The goal of the fund is to reduce the risk of developing life threatening cancers by offering access to preventative medical services."

* Furthering the commitment for patients to access to quality medical care related to cancer, the fund seeks to assist families burdened by the cost of caring for loved ones with cancer."

There is a Brutal Legend 2 coming out, but that article itself is old as fuck. Even the trailer is from the first game.

I think it will have been totally changed by then Becks- the new album will be out by the end of this tour and they'll have some more tracks from that.

I know during the last tour a lot of people were going on about the lack of newer stuff being played live, I guess they can't please everyone, but still, I AM surprised at some of the omissions- No The Trooper? 

I would go see them live with this setlist, but if you haven't caught them on one of their recent 'Greatest hits' type tours, yeah it sucks. I could accuse them of this being a marketing ploy, but, hell, I'd feel bad. I think they do it because they genuinely get bored of playing the classics.

My friend just went to the opening show of the tour last night in Dallas. He said that the first 13 songs were from the last two albums..... to quote him "It takes guts to play the first 13 songs from the last 2 albums." They didn't play any old Maiden until the encore!

It's alright what they released. But the length of songs are far too long. It's like they are going back to the experiment days again and repeating from A Matter of Life and Death. Maybe it was a good call to skip seeing Iron Maiden this year...

I think it sounds a lot more like Bruce's solo stuff than Maiden's recent work. It'll be interesting to see how it fits into the rest of the album. Meanwhile I'm continuing to try and download the mp3- its taking forever and this is about the 4th attempt. Guess the website must be swamped.

And yeah, good music but why the hell have they got Melvyn Grant back on board? They should have had Tim Bradstreet again, if AMOLAD is anything to go by, he'd have done a much better job.

Yeah. The song is okay...and the intro keeps reminding me of Metallica's Hit the Lights.

Thanks for the info Vail. Not sure what to make of that song. Someone needs to tell them to stop making 7 + minute long songs! That song could easily have been half the length.

IRON MAIDEN: New Album Details Revealed - June 7, 2010 *cough*badalbumcover*cough*

The European release date for IRON MAIDEN's much-anticipated new studio album, "The Final Frontier", is now confirmed for Monday, August 16. The CD features artwork (see below) illustrated by Melvyn Grant and, to mark the occasion, the band has made special arrangements for one new album track, "El Dorado", to be made available worldwide as a FREE digital download MP3 with immediate effect via The song can also be streamed in the YouTube clip below.

Singer Bruce Dickinson explains, "'El Dorado' is a preview of the forthcoming studio album. As we will be including it in the set of our 'Final Frontier World Tour' (which opens in Dallas on June 9) we thought it would be great to thank all our fans and get them into 'The Final Frontier' mood by giving them this song up front of the tour and album release."

The band reunited with long-time MAIDEN producer Kevin "Caveman" Shirley in early 2010 at Compass Point Studios, Nassau to record the album and then moved to The Cave Studios in Malibu, California to finish the recording and do the mixing. Compass Point Studio is very familiar to the band, it was where they recorded the "Piece Of Mind" (1983), "Powerslave" (1984) and "Somewhere In Time" (1986) albums.

Bruce comments: "The studio had the same vibe and it was EXACTLY as it had been in 1983, NOTHING had changed! Even down to the broken shutter in the corner... same carpet... everything... It was really quite spooky. But we felt very relaxed in such a familiar and well-trodden environment and I think this shows in the playing and the atmosphere of the album."

30 years on from their eponymous debut album in April 1980, "The Final Frontier" will be MAIDEN's 15th studio album, making a remarkable average of a new album every two years for 30 years and totaling over 80 million album sales during this period.

"The Final Frontier" track listing (total running time 76:35):

01. Satellite 15....The Final Frontier (8:40)
02. El Dorado (6:49)
03. Mother Of Mercy (5:20)
04. Coming Home (5:52)
05. The Alchemist (4:29)
06. Isle Of Avalon (9:06)
07. Starblind (7:48)
08. The Talisman (9:03)
09. The Man Who Would Be King (8:28)
10. When The Wild Wind Blows (10:59)

"The Final Frontier World Tour" begins in Dallas on June 9 with 25 shows in major cities across the USA and Canada, playing to an expected 350,000 fans or more. Following this the tour will ship over to Europe starting in Dublin on July 30 and playing a few selected major festivals and stadiums , finishing in Valencia, Spain, on August 21 and including a concert in Transylvania.

Says bass player and founder member Steve Harris: "We're hugely excited about this tour. I think the fans will really like the brand new stage production and lights and we will also be debuting one of the new album tracks , 'El Dorado'. Our Texan fans will be the very first people anywhere to hear it live, so it will be interesting to see their reaction and how it goes down with the crowd on the night! Eddie has changed a bit for this tour but is possibly the most outrageous one to date... I can't say too much about him as don't want to spoil the surprise but I guarantee he will scare the hell out of you!"
