Nothing pairs better than cartoons and metal right? Well the creators of Squidbillies just kicked things up a notch. For the Halloween episode of ‘Squidbillies’ (entitled “Squash B’Gosh”), Cannibal Corpse recorded a special theme song for the show, which aired on October 30th, 2016. Producer and Hate Eternal vocalist/guitarist Erik Rutan comments about the collaboration: “The producers of ‘Squidbillies’ contacted Cannibal Corpse and asked them to record the theme song for their Halloween episode that just aired.

In 2005 a post apocalyptic Metallica tie-in game was in development called Damaged Inc. Ultimate Classic Rock states that the game would have been based around players driving around a dystopian wasteland in a selection of modified vehicles. The visual aesthetic of films such as Mad Max and The Road would have been a huge influence on the game according to the site. And while Metallica fans knew about the canceled game, this month is the first time that actual game play footage has been released. Continue reading
Nachtmystium has signed a new deal with Earache. Recently the independent record label also acquired the majority of the back-catalog of Nachtmystium as well. Earache‘s new deal with Nachtmystium includes the rights to five of the band’s studio albums, four EPs, a demos collection, and a remixes and rarities album which was previously only released on YouTube. Founder and vocalist Blake Judd comments: “I am proud to announce a new cooperation in the lengthy release history of Nachtmystium. I have teamed up with the folks at the legendary, UK-based metal label, Earache Records, to reissue the majority of Nachtmystium‘s back catalog recordings. Earache will also be releasing a brand new compilation LP of unreleased studio tracks, covers and remixes, titled ‘Retox‘. Earache ensures fans that there will be never before seen artwork included and there is something special for the fans that purchase the release(s). In the not so distant past Judd suffered from drug addiction and caused turmoil among his fan base when orders though him were undelivered. Judd adds: “Many people on the internet, understandably due to some issues that occurred in the past that I am very ashamed of, will be quick to jump on me personally and most likely Earache as well for announcing new releases without having directly addressed and taken action regarding the past issues mentioned above.” Judd is now clean and is trying to put the best foot forward and correct his past mistakes. We have not always condoned his actions but will always support his music. Blake writes and composes some of the best black metal ears have ever heard and we are certainly glad he is back doing what he does best. Continue reading
