Pat O’Brien May Be Sentenced

Cannibal Corpse guitarist Pat O’Brien was put under arrest near his house in Florida situated in Northdale. The house was set on fire and the ammunition was exploding inside. The situation happened during the night on the 11th of December. The neighbors spotted the fire rising in the house of Pat O’Brien on Monday evening. Firemen were able to cope with the fire within one hour, however, their work was hampered by exploding ammunition that was inside the house all of the time.

Actual Facts

The police report, done after O’Brien was apprehended, states that he broke into the house and was refusing to leave it even though he wasn’t permitted to be there by the owner and his relatives living there. According to the statement, he took the owner deep into the house, while he himself went to the backyard. Sheriff’s assistants found O’Brien behind the fence near his house, while he threatened them with a knife. In relation to O’Brien, a case has been filed involving the infiltration of someone else’s home, as well as for the aggravated assault on a police officer and the assault of a civilian.

The area was sealed off by the firemen and they remained at the site of the fire during the whole night even after its liquidation. The artist broke into his neighbor’s house and knocked her to the floor while his house was on fire and then ammunition exploded. When a policeman appeared at the scene, O’Brien attempted to attack him with a knife but was stopped with a stun gun.

On Wednesday, O’Brien was in the court, and a pledge of 50 thousand dollars was set on him. Afterward, the authorities decided to check him for the presence of narcotic substances in the body. A witness to the incident stated that the musician had hallucinations because he spoke of “ecstasy” and claimed that someone was following him. O’Brien allegedly even tried to hide in a closet in the house, which he broke into.


Pat O’Brien has been playing at Cannibal Corpse since 1997, and he took part in recording six albums. The Cannibal Corpse group was founded in 1988 and has about 12 studio albums in their discography. Cannibal Corpse is considered the most commercially successful death metal band in the world. On Monday, the band announced that they would join SLAYER as part of their farewell tour.

Ryan Wombacher (Bleeding Through/Light The Torch) “I Slept On Fuckin Kitty Litter”

In 2012 Howard Jones left Killswitch Engage to gain control of his diabetes, which had been hard to control while on tour. There wasn’t much time off for him as he almost immediately formed Devil You Know. The original lineup of the band was Howard on vocals, Francesco Artusato (All Shall Perish, Hiss of Atrocities) – guitars, Ryan Wombacher  who has been with Bleeding Through since 2002 – bass, backing vocals, Roy Lev-Ari (Hiss of Atrocities) – guitars and John Sankey (Divine Heresy, Fear Factory)– drums. Since then Roy Lev-Ari and John Sankey have left the band. The current drummer of the band is Mike Sciulara (Extinction A.D.). I was fortunate enough to see the band a couple times while on tour with Coal Chamber and on stage they put on an amazing show. Devil You Know released two albums ‘The Beauty of Destruction’ (2014) and ‘They Bleed Red’  (2015). The on July 26, 2017, the band announced via social media that they have changed their name to Light the Torch. The band in a way wanted a fresh start, and I believe the name has a better ring to it. The band is now set to release their debut under the name Light The Torch with ‘Revival’ which released on March 30, 2018.  Continue reading

State Of The Art: Missouri’s BUMMER [Album Stream & Live Video]

*This is part of our State Of The Art series, showcasing bands every Monday from the featured state. This month’s state is Missouri.*

Bummer hails from Kansas City, Missouri. Their name is quite ironic as their music and style is in no way a “bummer” its quite the opposite. Bummer slips into the genre of noise rock, but they aren’t your run of the mill noise rock band. Their music is honest and a straight forward punch to the face. The band formed in 2012 and is a trio which includes Matt Perrin pulling double duty on guitar and vocals, Mike Gustafson laying down the bottom end on bass, and Sam Hutchinson behind the kit on drums. Bummer is currently signed to Learning Curve Records. The bands first release was a 3 track EP titled ‘Young Ben Franklin’ that was recorded in vocalist Matt Perrin’s parents basement. That EP was released in April of 2013 and quickly the band followed that up with another EP ‘Milk’ in October of 2013. The band would then take some time before they would release ‘Spank’ in 2015. Since then the band has been pretty consistent with their releases pumping out a 12″ Split with Pinko in April 2017 followed by the release of the single “Beautiful People” several months later. Bummer’s most recent release is ‘Holy Terror’ which dropped in August of 2018. It is the band first full studio album which includes 10 thundering tracks. The album was Recorded at Westend Recording Studios, Kansas City, Kansas, produced by Bummer & Justin Mantooth, engineered by Justin Mantooth and was mastered by Mike Nolte at Eureka Mastering, Portland, Oregon.
