Happy birthday to Pantera and Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul, who turns 48 today. Even as he approaches the age of 50, the drummer still smashes away at the skins, using his arms and legs in ways that most men his age couldn’t even consider at this point. But he’s still got plenty of gas left in the tank.
Deftones frontman Chino Moreno is once again off the market. (Sorry, girls!) Moreno, 38, wed his longtime girlfriend Risa Mora in a ceremony in the thoroughly romantic locale of Hawaii last week. The couple swapped vows on Wednesday, March 7.
The Revolver Golden Gods Awards take place April 11 in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theater in conjunction with ‘Golden Gods: The History of Heavy Metal,’ which is a metal exhibit at the adjacent Grammy Museum. The display serves to educate visitors about the genre we all know and love by collecting various items relating to the metal acts. Hellyeah and Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul chatted with Revolver TV about the upcoming metallic festivities, as well as Hellyeah’s new album ‘Band of Brothers,’ due this June.
Five Finger Death Punch don’t waste any time. The band, enjoying a surge of success on the back of its third album ‘American Capitalist,’ embarks on tour after tour, leaving little time to record, right? Wrong! FFDP aren’t falling victim to idle time while on the road, instead bringing mobile recording equipment on tour so they can work while traveling from city to city. It effectively ensures that good musical ideas don’t get away from them. Ultimately, the rockers represent a model of efficiency.
Former Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan doesn’t know what’s going to happen next month at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. While tongues are wagging over whether or not GN’R will take up their instruments to celebrate this major accolade, the musician maintains that he can only speak for himself, saying that he’ll be there with bells on and that he’s not “that guy” who rallies the troops anymore.
Slash has shared the track list for his upcoming solo album ‘Apocalyptic Love,’ which is scheduled to drop on May 22. It’s 13 songs strong, but even with the doomsday romance title, the famed shredder is feeling positive and upbeat about the album (which is done except for a few stray mixes) and the prospect of touring. He just wants to get in front of fans and perform.
Forget pumped up kicks. You need some metal ones. For a limited time only, you can grab a pair. Street apparel giant Vans is reissuing several band-branded sneakers, including the Slayer and Iron Maiden editions.
Cold’s ‘American Dream’ video tells the story of just that: the sometimes unrealistic ideals and idyllic goals that so many average Americans strive for, yet never attain. Perhaps it’s the thrill of the chase, but Americans never give up on the dream. Also in this clip is the pervasive idea that nothing is ever quite like it seems, either.
Metallica‘s ‘Beyond Magnetic’ EP will see release in another format: silver vinyl. At first, the EP was digital only and then issued on CD. Now, to celebrate Record Store Day, the metal monoliths will release the EP on wax of the silver sort. Record Store Day is April 21, so look for it at your favorite mom and pop record retailer then, or via their website.
Man and machine will collide to form a gnashing, gnawing tangle of cyber metal courtesy of Fear Factory on June 5. The long-running band will release the new album ‘The Industrialist’ on that very date in North America via Candlelight. It’s a 10-song opus with a running time that clocks in at just short of an hour, which gives the band enough time to get in, rattle your brain, force you to mosh and/or headbang and then make its escape.
