Another edition of the Revolver Golden Gods Awards has come and gone, paying tribute to rock and metal artists who otherwise may never get the media attention deserved. The full 2014 ceremony, which clocked it at around four hours, experienced many ups and downs. Thus, we're recapping the most awesome and not-so-awesome moments from the show.
Pop Evil kicked off this year with a massive trek with Stone Sour, and now the band is hitting the road with Escape the Fate. For a full list of dates go here. We had the opportunity to sit down with Pop Evil frontman Leigh Kakaty, who spoke all about the band’s latest disc ‘Onyx.’ He gives an honest account of their need for creative freedom and expression on the album, as well as challenging recording moments.
Wilson are a band that everyone talked about during the 2014 ShipRocked Cruise as they crushed both the Melati Stage and the Headbanger’s Lounge. It’s no surprise they will be at sea again since it was recently announced the band will be part of Motorhead’s first ever Motorboat 2014 Cruise this year.
Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine was the guest on Full Metal Jackie’s radio show this past weekend. Mustaine spoke about the wealth of things on his immediate horizon, including his appearance with the San Diego Symphony, Megadeth's inclusion in Motorhead's Motorboad Cruise and the early stages of the band's next record. If you missed Jackie’s show, here’s her full interview with Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine.
Tomorrow (April 5, 2014), will be the 20th anniversary of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's death. The music of Nirvana has remained timeless over the past two decades, influencing an entire new generation of musicians. In this celebration of Cobain's life, we asked some of rock and metal's finest artists to name their favorite Nirvana song.
With countless years of music, Ringworm have been pummeling ears for decades. Frontman Human Furnace and his crew are gearing up for the release of their brand new record, ‘Hammer of the Witch.’ They are also hitting the road in the spring in promotion of the new album.
In 2004, music industry professional Steve Beatty started a record label whose sole purpose was to release remastered and improved versions of heavy metal classics, exclusively on vinyl. This was a few years before the "resurgence" of vinyl (for example, Record Store Day started in 2007) and smack dab in the middle of the digital downloading craze. A decade later, Beatty's label, Back on Black, is stronger than ever.
