Metal supergroup FIRSTBORNE is back with angry protest anthem “Cut The Strings”

For the uninitiated amongst you; we’re going to take a moment to talk about the absolutely batshit crazy lineup that comprises Firstborne (we don’t use “supergroup” lightly around these parts, especially in headlines). Superstar drummer Chris Adler (Lamb of God, Megadeth) joins forces with singular bassist James LoMenzo (Black Label Society, Megadeth), riff master Myrone (whose signature “soft shred” style is anything but soft) and unmistakable vocal titan Girish Pradhan (GATC) to create an outfit that is capable of playing pretty much any type of music…and whose approach to a classic heavy metalĀ  / thrash style is full of an old school “kill ’em all!” sentiment, while remaining firmly rooted in discussing social issues and being a voice for advocacy and positive change.

Linkin Park vaults back into the Billboard Top 15 with ‘Hybrid Theory’

Linkin Park have been one of the vanguards of rock music for the last 20 years. While the band has racked up plenty of accolades over the years, their success isn’t just about nostalgia – it’s that their music rewrote the rules of modern rock music as we know it.

Their Chocolate Starfish album was preceded by a tour sponsored by filesharing giant Napster, which was also notably free as a gift to the band’s burgeoning fanbase. Ever ahead of the industry curve, Durst famously quipped that “I would think the only people worried about that are people that are really worried about their bank accounts”.

Former Vanna members rebrand as Inspirit, debut first single, “Fold”

In the mid to late-2000’s, Massachusetts post-hardcore/metalcore band Vanna quickly made waves with the EP The Search Party Never Came as well as their Epitaph debut full-length, Curses. The band eventually changed vocalists shortly after the release of their sophomore album in 2009, and many prefer the band’s sound that was established up to and prior to that record. Well, while Vanna aren’t reuniting, the good news is that the 2006-era lineup of the band have reformed as Inspirit (literally, Vanna, in spirit), and have released their debut single “Fold”. It hearkens back to the band’s early days, while the vocals of Chris Preece and Evan Pharmakis (whose Wind In Sails acoustic project is prime stuff) have vastly improved with age.
