Lee Ving Is Alive, Covers Fear With Members of Anthrax and Nuclear Assault

All these famous musicians, like The Rolling Stones and Neil Young, keep telling Donald Trump that he can’t use their music at his rallies. But I wonder if he’s attempted to use Fear’s “I Don’t Care About You” as his new anthem? Not that I think Lee Ving and company would be pro-Trump. But I bet he could outspend them on lawyers at least. And truly,...

Exclusive Premiere: Proggy Black Metal Collective Drouth Unveil New Single, “An Apiarist”

My first listen of “An Apiarist,” the latest single from Drouth — which MetalSucks is beyond stoked to premiere today — reminds me a whole lot of the first time I heard Krallice. Not because Drouth sound like Krallice (other than having elements of black metal in their music), but because the band’s music is full of twists and turns that are all part...

Exclusive Album Premiere: SpiritWorld’s Pagan Rhythms

Art by Stu Folsom The title track that opens SpiritWorld’s new album, Pagan Rhythms, begins with a sample of some d-bag preaching about how “rock n’ roll music” has “turned our nation into a pagan society.” Well, Christ help that poor bastard if he hears this record. The brainchild of of Las Vegas-based artist, author, songwriter,...

Suicide Silence Release “Disengage” Performance From Virtual World Tour

Still not sold on Suicide Silence’s virtual world tour, despite Vince assuring you that it is, in fact, totally rad? Well, maybe this will help: the band has released video of their “Disengage” performance from the tour’s London show, which took place this past Monday, July 6. It more-than-ably demonstrates just how much effort the band is putting into...

Satyricon Vocalist Sold His Wine Business for $5.4 Million

Know how we’re always saying that metal musicians shouldn’t rely on their bands as their sole source of income because even “successful” bands are not nearly as successful as they seem? Well, if you didn’t wanna hear it from Periphery’s Misha Mansoor, who’s been preaching the subject for years, take it from someone decidedly more tr00/cvlt: Satryicon...
