More Details Emerge Regarding Mysterious Death of Quiet Riot Singer
Rolling Stone – Nov 29, 2007
albums stand the test of time is because they’re g*d-d*mn magic and secondly it’s because of their magic that their fan base grows throughout generations. Criticizing someone for not being 15 rows back at a concert is retarded!! (15 rows back what kinda wuss were you? the scared of the sweaty fans and gettin spit on by the band and messin up your pretty hair and zebra spandex kinda wuss that’s exactly the kinda wuss you are!!!) Next…”Bukowski” if old Hank was still around he wouldn’t drink a beer with you even if you were buying and he drank with anyone. You should change your screen name to “Bi-wussy” and stand in the 15th row with your other pretty friends. I came here to read up any info on the late GREAT Mr… Keep that devil’s poker out of your a**. It brought me back to my heavy metal days and the great music of the ’80’s that I never stopped listening to. I had never seen the band before but really loved the music(which I already knew) and the entertainment factor. I got a bunch of photos that I will cherish even more. Thanks for the music. Thanks for the memories.

Then to show he’s indebted to ’60s rock Wyndorf throws in a spectral cover of the Rolling Stones’ “2000 Light Years From Home” that’s pulpy enough for Quentin Tarantino’s next film. But the song looking for a movie soundtrack to call home is the cosmic sitar-and-tabla instrumental “Freeze and Pixillate” showing off a side of Wyndorf we haven’t heard before. If you enjoy metal music that makes you think as you bang your head in homage to Satan Wyndorf is the once and future space lord.

‘Next big thing’ on NZ music scene aiming higher

When the members of metal hardcore band Take the Willing were sitting in their lounge thinking of band names they considered Rape the Willing. Guitarist Kaya Rayner 26 talking to NZPA in Auckland said it wasn't a politically incorrect attempt at getting media attention but rather about lost potential. "It wasn't rape as in the word most people would perceive it as. "It's taking a stab at people who have all these talents and they don't utilise it whether they're sitting around smoking drugs or whatever they do… "Regardless the fledging name was squashed by a much more potent force the band members' mothers. "ur mothers' caught wind of it and went "no bloody way!""So the next thing was to find a word to replace rape and it was take. "The band are determined to fulfill their potential and are about to embark on a tour playing their debut album Fight Music to fans in the North Island this year and next year the South Island. Billed by some critics as the "next big thing" the recognition has been exciting for the band but the members are trying to keep everything in perspective. "It's good getting the coverage we've got so far but we're still waiting for the pinnacle to come. "The members have been jamming together for at least eight years and have grown up together he says. Formed in 2006 the band consists of Nathan Sowter vocals Kurt Andersen guitar and backing vocals Jarred Dykes bass and Jayden Faass drums – all based in Mount Maunganui.

Huffman pointed to bands like Glassjaw and the Deftones as artists that were able to transcend an individual scene — in their cases hardcore and nu-metal respectively — to affect a larger group of people. “The Deftones are a perfect example” he said. “They came up in the ’90s in the middle of nu-metal and then they started making much more melodic music. That made them more of a timeless band. Visnovsky said that what he has heard of the band’s current material is “really good. “They combine the hardcore genre with some more melodic elements” he said. “It’s astounding how they can go from a heavy driving breakdown into a really pretty part.
