In the current age of reboots especially in horror and Blumhouse being the go to company for all mainstream horror releases when a Black Christmas remake (technically 2nd remake) was announced I was expected to be let down. Being a massive fan of both the original and even the mid 2000’s remake I had hopes that maybe Blumhouse would continue their success rate and make this a good one even with a PG-13 rating, oh how I was wrong though.
Though a new name on the block, Los Angeles metal band Second Shooter have already made a name for themselves with an EP and a host of shows, including an opening slot for Jinjer just last year. Their explosive blend of death metal, groove metal, and hardcore has earned them a solid fanbase early on, and their new video for single “1 In 6” is a good starting point to the band’s energy. Especially vocalist Melanie Johnson, who roars with confidence with an array of vocal styles.
“1 In 6” is available to stream below, and rest assured the metal newcomers are working on new music all the time as well. Feel free to bang your head to this one.
Though their upcoming summer tour dates are certainly in question with the coronavirus pandemic spreading seemingly by the day, Breaking Benjamin’s recent tour with Korn was a huge success. Sporting massive crowds night in and night out, the tour was one of the biggest rock events of 2020 early on.
However, a solid lineup wasn’t the only thing that was notable about the sold-out tour. Similarly-styled Starset, who recently released their 3rd album Divisions last year to solid reviews, are based out of Columbus, Ohio – so Starset’s acclaimed vocalist Dustin Bates joined the band on stage to perform “Breath”. To nobody’s surprise, the crowd absolutely loved it, and we think you will too. Give the 2006 Phobia hit a watch below. While the band toured together previously years ago, we also think it would be a great idea if it happened again.
