Absolutely correct Jimmy. That was "brilliant" and like 90% of your posts, I agree with EVERY thing you said here. I'm fucking "fed up" with these aging heavy metal stars,I think its time to quit for "all" of them.Fuck it.

You see, this is what happens when Zakk Wylde gets kicked out: Ozzy gets to do whatever he freaking wants, and this just sounds and looks terrible. Though to be fair I thought it was a tribute to Sharon.

Fuckin' A. Soul Sucka sounds like the title of a Snoop Dog cd. Epecially spelt like "sucka". Is this really the same guy who did Blizzard Of Ozz and Diary Of A Madman? I think the reason for Ozzy's musical degression is the fact that he's having more of a say on what goes on in the studio. Everyone knows that Randy Rhodes, Bob Daisley and Lee Kerslake wrote the material for the classic Ozzy albums. Ozzy was snorting coke and drinking piss and basically just came in and did the vocals. Same thing in Sabbath when he was with them. Butler and Iommi wrote the songs, Ozzy just sang what he was told to. And the fact that he's become famous outside the heavy metal world with that embarrasing show means that a whole bunch of reality tv watching losers are now "fans". So the music needs to be this disposable throwaway shit that appeals to those kind of dickheads rather than albums that would stand the test of time. I think Zakk Wyldes departure is similar to that of Jason Newsteds when he left Metallica. Fed up with the egos and the shit music.

EVILE Announces New Bassist - Dec. 16, 2009
British thrashers EVILE have revealed the identity of their new bassist, who joins the band following the tragic and untimely death of their late bassist, Mike Alexander.

Mike Alexander passed away on October 5, 2009 while the band was on tour in Sweden.

EVILE members Matt Drake, Ol Drake and Ben Carter have released the following statement:

"This has been one of the most bizarre and surreal tasks we've ever had to undertake. It isn't like Mike has decided to leave the band and we're simply finding a new bass player. He was taken from us, and we were forced to replace him. In effect, we had to look for a new Mike, but that would never happen. He was one of a kind, and we'll never forget him.

"We had hundreds upon hundreds of emails from bass players from around the world (though we can only realistically have a bassist from the U.K.), and we want to thank everyone for taking the time out to contact us, and the people who came to jam with us.

"We only had a certain amount of time to actually audition/jam with bass players before the upcoming tours, to get time in for rehearsing the songs, getting visas sorted etc.

"Our new bass player goes by the name Joel Graham. He's an excellent, experienced bass player, and a really nice guy.

"We'd all appreciate it if you gave him a warm welcome to the band, as this must be a bizarre situation for him to be in also.

"We'll be getting some photos taken with him soon so you can see us with Joel. We just wanted to get the news out there that we have a new bassist, and that we thank each and every person for auditioning. Mike would be honoured at the amount of respect and admiration you expressed to us through contacting us."

EVILE is set to kick off a headlining European tour in January. The "Infecting Nations" trek will start with a run of U.K. shows before the band heads off to mainland Europe. Joining EVILE on the tour will be American thrashers WARBRINGER and Israel's THE FADING.

New Sebastian Bach Song "Live The Life"

Live the Life:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bisUsBazT6k


Fan-filmed video footage of former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach and his solo band performing a brand new song called "Live The Life" on December 13, 2009 at Pakkahuone in Tampere, Finland can be viewed below.

Bach's current solo band includes guitarists Nick Sterling and Johnny Chromatic, drummer Bobby Jarzombek and bassist Rob DeLuca.

Bach recently stated about his new bandmates: "I can't tell ya how happy I am with my band and my new guitar player Nick Sterling! This dude is gonna blow you all away! He plays incredible and we got some new jams that will kick your ass! The whole band is rockin' and we can't wait to see you all LIVE on tour!!"

Bach and DANKO JONES will support GUNS N' ROSES on their upcoming Canadian tour in January/February.

Dominick Tancredi will play bass for Bach on December 21 in Moscow, Russia.

Sebastian recently collaborated with HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta on several tracks for Bach's new solo album, with Nick and Charlie Bellmore of the Connecticut band PHANTOMS assisting during the pre-production process. The singer has also written material with John 5 (ROB ZOMBIE, MARILYN MANSON).

Bach is best known for selling 20 million albums as the former lead singer of SKID ROW. He has gone on to star on Broadway and television, including five seasons on CW's "Gilmore Girls", as well as hit shows on VH1, MTV and CMT. Bach's most recent studio project was "Angel Down", his first solo album since 1999. The record features 14 songs with a guest appearance by GUNS N' ROSES front man Axl Rose on three cuts, including a blistering version of AEROSMITH's "Back In The Saddle".

Heaven & Hell Begin Booking Shows For 2010

terrybezer / News / 10/12/2009 16:09pm

dio90Relieving to hear after the recent news that Ronnie James Dio was diagnosed with stomach cancer.

Heaven & Hell have been confirmed to be playing Sonisphere in Sweden and Finland this coming August. Whilst what bands are playing Scandinavian festivals wouldn’t usually be high priority on our agenda, it does seem to give hope that Ronnie James Dio is on the road to recovery!

Dio's First Chemo Treatment Successful

Legendary heavy metal singer Ronnie James Dio (DIO, HEAVEN & HELL, BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW) was diagnosed with the early stages of stomach cancer and is currently receiving treatment at the Mayo Clinic. His wife/manager Wendy Dio has issued the following update on Ronnie's condition:

"Well, it has been a very exhausting month. After all the never-ending tests in Los Angeles, we flew to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, and as soon as we arrived, we got a call from the MD Anderson Hospital that they had an appointment for us with the doctor we originally wanted, so we then flew to Houston to the clinic, and, of course, MORE tests, but Ronnie finished receiving his first chemo treatment on Wednesday, and all is going very well.

"I would like to thank Tony Martell from the T.J. Martell Foundation, Dr. Stuart Aaronson from Mount Sinai, Lindsay Brown and Mike Carden from Eagle Records, and our very own Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, for all your help in getting us into MD Anderson, and also our friends Geezer and Gloria Butler, who flew to Houston to be with Ronnie while he had his chemo.

"Ronnie and I are totally overwhelmed by the amount of well wishes that we have received from friends and fans — we are reading them all. Some make us laugh, some make us cry, but all of them are so filled with love that it gives us so much support and makes Ronnie even more determined to fight this battle and win.

"Thank you all for the positive energy and prayers."

According to a posting on the BLACK SABBATH fan site Black-Sabbath.com, fans can send get-well cards to Ronnie James Dio through the official fan club address:

Dio Fan Club
12400 Ventura Boulevard, Suite 624
Studio City, CA

Additionally, if you'd like to send an email to Ronnie, you can do so via [email protected]. After a short time, Black-Sabbath.com webmaster Joe Siegler will print them out and pass them over to Ronnie and Wendy Dio.

Dio, 67, has performed with ELF, RAINBOW, BLACK SABBATH, and his own band DIO. Other musical projects include the collective fundraiser "Hear 'n Aid". He is widely hailed as one of the most powerful singers in heavy metal, renowned for his consistently powerful voice and for popularizing the "devil's horns" hand gesture in metal culture. He is currently involved with HEAVEN & HELL, a project which also includes Iommi and other former BLACK SABBATH bandmates Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice. Their first studio album, "The Devil You Know", was released on April 28, 2009.

KK Downing Video Blog

A new guitar-related video blog from JUDAS PRIEST guitarist K.K. Downing filmed few weeks ago in Finland has been posted on his official YouTube channel. Check out K.K. introducing a classic instrument from the past below.

JUDAS PRIEST's August 17, 2009 performance at the Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida was filmed for a DVD that will be included in a forthcoming expanded 30th-anniversary edition of their 1980 classic, "British Steel".

As they have done at all of their U.S. summer dates this year, PRIEST performed the "British Steel" album in its entirety at the Seminole Hard Rock Arena.

JUDAS PRIEST kicked off its "British Steel" 30th-anniversary tour on June 29 at the Murat Theatre in Indianapolis, Indiana. Halford told Noisecreep, "It's like suddenly, thirty years have come upon us and we're about to celebrate. The album's technical anniversary is April of next year, but want to start the party early."

Halford added, "In today's economy, all artists have to think of something to do differently. We decided that this would be a great opportunity to do something that PRIEST has never done before, which is to play an album in its entirety. The band and the name 'JUDAS PRIEST' have both been around since 1969, so it is our fortieth anniversary, too. We seem to be in a constant celebration mode!"

Dimebag Tribute Album Info Released

The complete track listing has been revealed for the forthcoming "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott (PANTERA, DAMAGEPLAN) tribute album, which will be released on the cover of the 200th issue of U.K.'s Metal Hammer magazine. The CD and the magazine, which will coincide with the five-year anniversary of Dimebag's passing, will be made available on December 16.

The "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott tribute album will include the following artists/cuts:

01. ZAKK WYLDE - "Suicide Note Pt. 1"
02. MACHINE HEAD - "Fucking Hostile"
03. MALEFICE - "I'm Broken"
04. AVENGED SEVENFOLD - "Walk"
05. EVILE - "Cemetery Gates"
06. FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH - "A New Level"
07. BIOHAZARD - "Mouth For War"
08. SYLOSIS - "Strength Beyond Strength"
09. CHIMAIRA - "Slaughtered"
10. UNEARTH - "Sandblasted Skin"
11. THROWDOWN - "Becoming"
12. KIUAS - "This Love"
13. THIS IS HELL - "Rise"

AVENGED SEVENFOLD's "Walk" audio stream:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7PIhpySka4&feature=player_embedded#at=62


MACHINE HEAD frontman Robb Flynn told Metal Hammer about the band's decision to cover the "Vulgar Display Of Power" classic "Fucking Hostile", "It was either that or 'Strength Beyond Strength' from 'Far Beyond Driven'. In the end, we decided that we wanted to do a classic. We chose 'Fucking Hostile' because it’s two and a half minutes of pure, raging metal. It's short, fast and brutal."

He continued, "There's some real intricate riffing parts in there. We'd jammed it before but we'd never sat down and analyzed it properly. I think we did a great job on it."

The song by EVILE turned out to be bassist Mike Alexander's very last and was recorded just before he himself died of a pulmonary embolism, a blockage of an artery in the lung, on October 5, 2009 while on tour with the band in Sweden.

"Dimebag" Darrell Abbott was co-founder and lead guitarist for PANTERA. When PANTERA broke up in 2003, Dimebag and his brother Vinnie Paul formed DAMAGEPLAN. On Dec. 8, 2004, while performing with DAMAGEPLAN at the Alrosa Villa in Columbus, Ohio, Dimebag was shot and killed onstage by Nathan Gale. He was 38 years old.

New Upcoming ACDC DVD

According to 10Musica.com, AC/DC's three sold-out shows at the River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina on December 2, 3 and 6 (65,000 capacity each) will be filmed for a future DVD release. Additional footage at the stadium will be shot on Saturday, December 5 without the presence of an audience.

AC/DC arrived in Buenos Aires on Sunday, November 29.

AC/DC released a limited-edition box set called "Backtracks" on November 10. The set, which comes in two versions, was made available only through the ACDCBacktracks.com web site. As previously speculated, the "deluxe" package is housed inside a fully operational AC/DC amplifier and comes in a limited, autographed run of 50,000 copies. Included in the set are three CDs of live and studio rarities, two DVDs, a vinyl LP also containing studio rarities, a 164-page coffee table book, fine art lithographs of rare photos, a reproduction of an early AC/DC concert flyer and other memorabilia, including a button, guitar pick, and more.

A standard edition features two CDs of live and studio material, a single DVD plus bonus videos.

The first DVD is the long-awaited video compilation "Family Jewels 3", which rounds up the group's music videos, live performances, and promotional clips from 1992 to 2009. The second DVD, "Live At The Circus Krone", captures a complete club show that the band played in Munich in 2003.

Among the studio rarities included in the set are alternate versions of a number of early AC/DC tracks, as well as the never-before-released "Love Song", possibly the only ballad the band ever wrote with original singer Bon Scott.

Agree. They reckon that wankstain from Buckcherry is in line for the vocalist spot. When I was in Canada I saw Buckcherry open for Motley Crue, they were fucking abysmal. Imagine Aerosmith doing their 40th anniversary tour with him at the mike, embarrasing. Especially after 39 and half years with Tyler at the helm. They should do what Van Halen did when Hagar left and Priest should have done when Halford left. Get Gary Charone!!! If he's not available Deep Freeze could fill in..

Ov Hell Debut Album Info Released

OV HELL, the new black metal project featuring DIMMU BORGIR vocalist Shagrath and ex-GORGOROTH bassist King, has completed work on its debut album, "The Underworld Regime", for a February 2010 release via Indie Recordings. The CD was recorded at Earshot Studio and features Shagrath on vocals, King on bass, Frost (SATYRICON) on drums, Ice Dale (ENSLAVED) on guitar and Teloch (NIDINGR, GOD SEED) on guitar. The album was produced by Herbrand Larsen and mastered at the Livingroom studios by Espen Berg and Shagrath in November 2009. King composed all of the music for "The Underworld Regime", while Shagrath wrote all lyrics, with contributions from Silenoz and Sarah Owens.

"The Underworld Regime" track listing:

01. Devil’s Harlot
02. Post Modern Sadist
03. Invoker
04. Perpetual Night
05. Ghosting
06. Acts of Sin
07. Krigsatte Faner
08. Hill Norge

Commented Shagrath: "The majestic OV HELL has become a band that reflects our roots — raw, ugly, arrogantly blasphemous — with uncompromising truth from two influential Norwegian musicians needing to express our primitive side, straight out OV HELL."

Added King: "It's been a little hell to actually see this music form into a band, but when I'm now listening to the final result, it has been worth the hard work we have put into this album!"

Two rough-mix sample tracks from "The Underworld Regime" can be heard on the band's MySpace page.

In a recent interview with MetalNews.pl, King stated about OV HELL's debut album, "It is always hard to describe your own music and it usually ends up like meaningless self-promotion of your own album. It will, however, contain music most people would define as black metal. I'm not claiming we have reinvented the wheel, but I don't think have heard any band to date we could be seen as copycats of. I have not heard all the bands in the world and can, of course, be mistaken.

"The album will contain a mixture of our different musical preferences and the personalities involved, which hopefully will lead to something original and new. I have to say, though, that I am more occupied of developing myself spiritually and musically than strive to be viewed as original by fans."

"The will to relive 1994 in black metal these days should be against all that black metal is all about. Presenting others' art and ideas almost 15 years later, mostly based on nostalgic reflections, show that you don't have the capacity to adapt to your own chaos and so on develop to a strong individual unique being. Recycling your own ideas will show that you are not capable of change and in other words should be viewed as dead.

"A person who is not able to change opinions, learn from his mistakes and have the ability to grow and change should not shout for people's attention but be quiet.

"I am grateful that I have had musicians with me on this record that do NOT possess these qualities."

Yes kiamat,I was bummed out from the news as well as millions of others. This is something obviously that can happen to anyone of us at any time,and that is scary. I sure hope he beats this thing.Just goes to show that when something like this happens it makes you realize that the little  things in life that piss us off is irrelevent. A reality check needless to say.

When I first read the headlines, I couldn't think of anything more depressing than I'd heard in a while. But having read the statements hes made about fighting back, plus the fact that they caught it early, makes me feel much better. Get well soon RJD, we love you!

Eddie Trunk
, co-host of the VH1 Classic television program "That Metal Show" who has a long-running radio show, "Friday Night Rocks", on New York's Q104.3 FM, has posted the following message on his official web site:

"Just hung up the phone with both Wendy Dio and Ronnie James Dio himself.

"Obviously, the news was just released about Ronnie having stomach cancer. I was aware of this a number of days ago, but did not say anything public until Ronnie's camp was ready to release the news.

"As I have said in the past, Ronnie has always been one of my closest friends and biggest supporters over the many years we have worked together doing various things. We have a friendship far beyond just music and he being a musician and me being a host. So I have been in a knot over this news when I was first told about it around a week ago.

"The results of the many tests he has had were made known yesterday, so now he knows exactly what he is dealing with and will soon find out the course of action. The GREAT news is that it did not spread and is in an early stage!

"I just hung up with him and he sounded great. The usual RJD, totally commited to 'killing the dragon,' and he will! He is not in pain, sounded great, and was ready to do what he has to do and get back on stage and sing like only he can!

"It was great to have spent about 20 minutes on the phone with him and hear how positive he was and thankful for all the support from his many fans. He's already made a few changes to his diet that he said has helped him feel great and admitted his days of having a few drinks are mostl likely behind him.

"I will share what I can when I can, but know Ronnie is ready to fight and win, and anyone who knows the man knows he will succeed!

"Let's all continue to keep him in our thoughts and prayers going forward for a speedy recovery. Yes, Ronnie is a great singer and icon for the music we love, but he is an even better person and I know he will beat this!"

Wendy Dio, the wife and manager of legendary heavy metal vocalist Ronnie James Dio (DIO, HEAVEN & HELL, BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW), has released the following statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET:

"Ronnie has been diagnosed with the early stages of stomach cancer. We are starting treatment immediately at the Mayo Clinic. After he kills this dragon, Ronnie will be back on stage, where he belongs, doing what he loves best, performing for his fans.

"Long live rock and roll, long live Ronnie James Dio.

"Thanks to all the friends and fans from all over the world that have sent well wishes. This has really helped to keep his spirit up."

Ronnie James Dio, 67, has performed with ELF, RAINBOW, BLACK SABBATH, and his own band DIO. Other musical projects include the collective fundraiser "Hear 'n Aid". He is widely hailed as one of the most powerful singers in heavy metal, renowned for his consistently powerful voice and for popularizing the "devil's horns" hand gesture in metal culture. He is currently involved with HEAVEN & HELL, a project which also includes former BLACK SABBATH bandmates Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice. Their first studio album, "The Devil You Know", was released on April 28, 2009.

DIO cancelled its European tour last week after Ronnie was taken ill. The band's lineup for the trek was supposed to include WHITESNAKE/ex-DIO axeman Doug Aldrich due to the fact that the group's regular guitarist, Craig Goldy, had prior touring commitments with BUDGIE in Australia.

DIO's last release was the "Holy Diver Live" CD, featuring a performance of the classic "Holy Diver" album in its entirety, from start to finish, recorded live for the very first time in 2005 in front of a sold-out London crowd.

I didn't know they played the Wii before shows! Interview w/Halford at the middle of video.
ROB HALFORD Interviewed At Launch Party For 'New Super Mario Bros.' - Nov. 23, 2009
Rob Halford was interviewed by Ray Carsillo of 1050espn.com and ESPNvideogames.com when the JUDAS PRIEST singer attended the 25th anniversary celebration and launch party for New Super Mario Bros. at the Nintendo World Store in Rockefeller Center, New York City on November 12, 2009. Watch the footage below. (Note: The Halford portion begins around the three-minute, 30-second mark.)

"In JUDAS PRIEST, we actually play the games in the dressing room," said the singer. "Generally before a show. Just to get in the mood for the excitement and the energy for what we're gonna do. However, at our stately metal god time of life, we tend to do the Nintendo bowling. And the golfing. If there's any energy left after the show, we get into the boxing mode."

Halford — along with Ozzy Osbourne, Lemmy Kilmister (MOTÖRHEAD) and Lita Ford — is part of the voice cast for the Brütal Legend game, which was made available last month for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system and the PlayStation computer entertainment system.

Brütal Legend is a third-person action game rich in combat, imagery and storytelling, delivering lighter-flicking fun sure to melt your face off.

Brütal Legend tells the tale of Eddie Riggs, played by Jack Black. The ultimate roadie, Eddie is the first person anyone calls when they need guitars tuned or stages rigged, and has a love for hot rods and a photographic memory for every heavy metal album cover, and the lyrics those albums contained. One night, a stage accident knocks Eddie unconscious, and he awakens in a world that looks very strange yet oddly familiar, a world where every heavy metal album cover and lyric Eddie knows has come to life, and where the evil emperor Doviculus and his demon army, The Tainted Coil, have enslaved the last remaining humans. When an oppressed people request Eddie's knowledge of modern warfare, he pulls from his own experience in the only occupation he's ever had, a roadie for a heavy metal band, and under his command, this barbaric force of hot-rods, Marshall stacks, leather, and chrome will bring this ancient world into the age of metal.
