Trent Reznor is a Twitter quitter
Metal Sludge is the home of the absolutely worst people I’ve ever come across. It’s populated mainly by unattractive plump females who publicly fantasize about having sex with guys in bands. ” So now Reznor’s tweets are complete. He decided not to offer a good-bye nor even some hope for social networking’s future.
Who Ya Gonna Call To Help Get Your Music In Rock Band? These Guys
"I think there’s still gonna be the idea of taking songs that you don’t really have the rights to and being able to do it on a personal level" he said. "That’s still going to exist because it doesn’t cost money. "So far Rhythm Authors has signed two bands of the metal variety. The company isn’t metal-biased but Feica admits he’s a metalhead — thus these bands were signed first. Rhythm Authors is currently in talks with a number of other bands to ensure material can start getting cranked out the moment the open beta begins sometime in August. He expects a two to three week turnaround on tracks but it’s hard to say until works begins. In a few weeks Feica’s promises will have to become reality.

Having less people at Metal Fest made the concert more intimate said Tyler Tordt of Victoria. “I wish there would be a better turnout but it’s also cool to have this little people so you can get closer to the bands” Tordt 18 said. “We just finished chilling with Within White Shadows for like 30 minutes. Locals who attended said they liked having something to do on a Saturday night.
Six Songs Used to Torture and Intimidate
Wall Street Journal
FBI officials said they rejected the idea of using Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Achy Breaky Heart” because of fears that some of the cult members might actually like it. They’re loud often repetitive and (as any parent with steadily reduced hearing can attest) can even create feelings of physical pain or discomfort to the ears and head. Troops used “long range acoustic devices” to blast the Australian metal group’s ballads throughout the region to increase the vulnerability of Iraqi insurgents.

Warped Tour brings nearly 100 bands to an ceanport punk party
The Star-Ledger – NJ.com
Fans could move around the grounds freely and the various stages were spaced far enough apart that there was very little overlap in sound. At the smaller stages fans sampled a wide spectrum of underground music from heavily tattooed hard-core screamers like England’s Gallows to baby-faced emo bands in pastel-colored tees playing synthesizer dance-pop. It was impossible to catch everything with so much going on but some of the highlights included the teenage metal band Black Tide whose melodic riffing and shredding solos recalled the glory days of Black Sabbath; the energetic Jersey punk-rock group A Clear Blurr which earned its Warped Tour spot by winning a local Battle of the Bands; and Boston’s Big D and the Kids Table whose rollicking danceable set mixed ska punk and old-fashioned American swing. And then there was Angelo Moore of the late-’80s ska-reggae-punk fusion band Fishbone who kept turning up to guest with bands throughout the day. He added soulful vocals and sax to sets by NFX Big D and the Kids Table and Westbound Train (with whom he performed a medley of ’60s soul classics including “Stand By Me” and tis Redding’s “Mr. Pitiful”) and was met with a roaring ovation every time. Leave it to one of the oldest performers of the day to show the kids how it’s done.
