Dear Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,
For the second year in a row, you nominated, but ultimately denied induction to Deep Purple. Fans of the legendary hard rock / heavy metal act were disappointed by the snub last year, but as Deep Purple were once again passed over for the 2014 ceremony, the Internet has blown up with serious vitriol against your Hall of Fame.
Earlier this year, Five Finger Death Punch carried out one of their musical aspirations collaborating with the one and only Metal God, Rob Halford of Judas Priest, on their song ‘Lift Me Up.’ The tune served as the first single from ‘The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Volume 1,’ released back in July.
'Stone Cold' Steve Austin is one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time. His persuasion as an anti-authoritarian and surly redneck who loves drinking beer and kicking ass is among the most celebrated characters in WWE / WWF history. Those familiar with Austin may picture the man listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd or Hank Williams, and although that may be true, Austin recently professed his love for Slayer, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Ozzy Osbourne and many other metal acts.
With Mayhem Festival behind them and their current tour with Lamb of God under way, the road warriors of Huntress have had one busy year! Their sophomore record ‘Starbound Beast’ has captured fans with its perfect combination of melodies and brutality. It’s no surprise when you listen to the music of Huntress that it takes you into another realm.
