Up to 80,000 fans were expected for the Hell & Heaven Metal Fest coming up March 15 and 16 just outside Mexico City. However, the event, which features KISS, Guns N’ Roses, Twisted Sister, Rob Zombie, Testament and Opeth, is in doubt after being stopped by the Mexican state government. However, the organizers say the festival will go on as planned.
As Foo Fighters fans anxiously await the band's next album, drummer Taylor Hawkins is keeping busy with another side project band. He's formed the Birds of Satan with bassist Wile Hodgden and guitarist Mick Murphy, who are also in his cover band Chevy Metal. Their self-titled debut album will be released April 15. Watch a trailer for the album below.
