The Duke of Spook, WEDNESDAY 13 has revealed a brand new video for “Cadavarous,” a track taken from his current “Condolences” album. Check it out here.

Exclusive Premiere of DOWNTREND’s “Nobody Gets Out Alive” Official Video! [Stream]

Facebooktwittermail

 

Downtrend formed in 2004 and has went through a few lineup changes since then. The band retains founding members Josh Crum and Jeremy Chaney. Long time member drummer J.D. Hall takes his seat behind the drum kit adding his style and showmanship to the band. Hall and Chaney were also formerly bandmates in the crushingly heavy group Voices Of Aggression. The chemistry among these three gents is amazing, which can be heard in their music and seen live when they take the stage. In the bands 10+ years their sound has changed and progressed but the biggest thing about the band is the heart and passion they have for music. This year the band held auditions and welcomed new singer Shawn Williams formerly of Hollow. The band’s sound has adjusted somewhat since the addition of Shawn to the band but it’s all changes in a great direction. The band has performed with Shawn around 6 times and each and every time they perform their sound continues to become even more electric. The bands most recent release is ‘Southern Fried Hell Ride: Live’ that was recorded in West Virginia and truly captures the bands ability to perform live. Downtrend has been performing live for over 10 years now and has been the opening act for various legends in rock and metal. Some include Adema, Nonpoint, Sevendust, 10 Years, Otherwise, Lynch Mob, Jake E. Lee’s Red Dragon Cartel, and various others. The band has yet to release any official tracks with new vocalist Shawn Williams….UNTIL NOW. The band has recorded a new track as well as an accompanying video. The track as well as the video was recorded by audio and video engineer Tony Mullins at TubeFi studios in Pikeville, Kentucky. Downtrend has kindly allowed us here at Metal Nexus to premiere the video to the world. So here is the exclusive official video of “Nobody Gets Out Alive” Continue reading

The Many Faces of ANTHRAX’s Scott Ian

Scott Ian from Anthrax at Nova Rock 2014

Most of us know Scott Ian as a musician. More precisely, he’s a rhythm guitarist and occasional vocalist, and the founder and only remaining original member of the Queens-based heavy metal group called Anthrax. While all that is true, he is also a man of many talents and interests. Some of the facts about his life are pretty interesting, too.

Scott Ian is married. This is pretty usual, except his wedding attire consisted of Bermuda shorts, trainers, and a regular T-shirt. From what I gathered, this wasn’t supposed to be a casual ceremony as this outfit would suggest. Who was the father of the bride? The famous musician/singer/writer/actor/producer best known by his stage name Meat Loaf.

However, music was undoubtedly Scott’s first love. He was sure about their long-lasting relationship early on. Besides his main musical commitment and a few associated acts (best known as the crossover thrash band Stormtroopers of Death), he found the time for many side projects with fellow musicians.
