A metalhead’s work is never done. The always-prolific Phil Anselmo, who always seems to have several irons in the metal fire, is working hard on some brand new solo material. The former Pantera singer, who has also recently been laying down tracks on a Down EP, is working with a band on this other project, according to his boarder Mike Williams of Eyehategod fame.
It’s been a rough couple of days for Biohazard, with bassist/vocalist Scott Roberts being rushed to the hospital last night (Jan. 20) at the start of the band’s ‘Persistence Tour 2012′ in Deinze, Belgium.
‘Nothing to Fear,’ the first horror movie to be produced by guitar god Slash via his newly launched Slasher Films banner, has seen its rights acquired by production and home entertainment company Anchor Bay.
Flyleaf singer Lacey Sturm is a pint-sized powerhouse and she flails about in the dark, foreboding and apocalyptic video for ‘Heavy Prey.’ Sturm lent her room-filling voice to Geno Lenardo’s song, which appears on the soundtrack to ‘Underworld Awakening,’ the fourth film in the action franchise.

Is there anything as infinitely cool as a presidential “candidate” who skateboards? Sure, it was hip when Bill Clinton was running for the highest elected office in the country and played the sax on late night TV shows, letting the country see his lighter, more human side. But Generation Y has its own vocal anti-hero and it’s D. Randall Blythe of Lamb of God. Blythe just released his first “presidential campaign ad” and it’s enough to make the youth of today wish he really was a legit candidate so fans could pull the lever in his favor in November.
The metal community was rocked earlier this week by the revelation that Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi was suffering from lymphoma. His diagnosis came right in the middle of Black Sabbath’s comeback trail, which includes a new album and touring. A flood of support from fans and fellow musicians followed the announcement of his illness. Now, the legendary axeman has issued his first personal statement on the matter.
Call it a comeback of a comeback! After Alice in Chains‘ 2009 effort ‘Black Gives Way to Blue’ landed Grammy nominations and enjoyed healthy sales amid the debut of new singer William Duvall, who replaced the late, great Layne Staley, the band is currently writing new material and working on the follow up. AIC should enter the studio early this year.
Godsmack singer Sully Erna has found a way to pass the time while rehabbing his knee, on which he recently had surgery. He has been busy Tweeting photos of his recovering joint and of his physical therapists. Erna had been quiet on Twitter for the past few months, but he’s back in action, killing time while healing.
If there ever was a time you will feel like you stumbled onto an intimate and private Van Halen soundcheck, it’s during the band’s video for their new song ‘Tattoo,’ the first single off their upcoming album, ‘A Different Kind of Truth,’ due Feb. 7.
