The 10 Most Powerful Frontmen In Heavy Metal And Hard Rock
Amazing performers, distinctive voices, memorable style and working with a ‘metal’ band (not hard rock, grunge, punk or hardcore); these are the criteria for becoming one of the ten most powerful frontmen in heavy metal and hard rock. These performers not only lead their band on stage, they command a presence that is undeniable to fans who have been lucky enough to catch them live. Some are no longer here, some are a little long in the tooth, but their contribution to their genre will always be felt.

1. Ronnie James Dio (Black Sabbath, Dio, Heaven & Hell, Rainbow, Elf)

Dio is credited...

Lead Singer Of Staind Calls-Out Concert Goers For Molesting A 15
WARNING : PROFANITY

Lead singer of hard rock band Staind, Aaron Lewis stopped a concert mid-song to call out some handsy concert attendees who were getting out of control with a young crowdsurfer.

The girl, reportedly 15 was being groped by older men as she crowd surfed around the pit of the stage. Lewis spotted it and decided that it was his responsibility to step in.

"Alright, listen up, you f**king a**holes. That f**king girl right there is, like, 15 f**king years old and you f**king pieces of sh*t are molesting her while she's on the f**king crowd. Your f**king mothers should be as...

Intellectual Rocker Wes Cage Prepares To Release First Solo Albu
In 2014, Wes Cage is blazing his own trail. The musician and actor is preparing his very first solo album as we speak, striving to cement his unique identity as an artist. He's also a devoted husband and family man - Wes and his wife Danielle are expecting their first child - and a little bit spiritual, too. BFTV connected with Wes to get his take on music and on life before his new music hits our ears later this year.

"Music is my passion, along with thespian arts," he told us. "And I do it in order to empower others, just like music empowered me. It's really a gift." And he wants to disp...

CD Review: Mushroomhead - "The Righteous and the Butterfly" (Megaforce Records)

CD Review: Mushroomhead - "The Righteous and the Butterfly" (Meg
It’s about both the journey and the destination on Mushroomhead’s The Righteous and the Butterfly, an album that really does save the best for last. Bucking the norm of putting your best foot forward, much of the band’s eighth studio album comes during the second half of the record, which isn’t to say you should be bypassing the first eight or so tracks.

The Righteous and the Butterfly is littered with classic Mushroomhead output – flat out chugging metallers ( “Our Apologies,” Devils Be Damned”) - interspersed with cuts seemingly plucked off the next Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack...

You Won't Believe How This Youtuber Sings Jason Derulo's Hit 'Talk Dirty To Me'

You Won't Believe How This Youtuber Sings Jason Derulo's Hit 'Ta
Youtuber 'Ten Second Songs' covers popular songs in a way that's maybe a little different than what you're used to. He takes a song as sings it in the style of different artists - sometimes artists whose styles varies greatly from that of the original singer. His most recent project takes Jason Derulo's 'Talk Dirty To Me' which he sings in styles that run from 'Slayer' and 'White Zombie' to 'Hootie and the Blowfish' and 'Cab Calloway.' Needless to say, he nails it on pretty much every rendition.

For more of Ten Second Songs really awesome renditions, you can check out his channel HERE. G...

CD Review: Various Artists - 'Punk Goes 90’s 2'

CD Review: Various Artists - 'Punk Goes 90’s 2'
The thing about Punk Goes 90’s 2, the 15th (yes, you read that right) installment of Fearless Records’ long running Punk Goes… series and second in the Punk Goes 90’s line, is, as with the majority of, if not all, its predecessors, a potpourri of mixed results. However, in the case of Punk Goes 90’s 2, the results are more often than not positive. For starters, Get Scared plays things close to the vest on Lit’s “My Own Worst Enemy,” as does the Color Morale on Foo Fighters’ “Everlong.” This approach doesn’t always work however, as Mayday Parade (Bush – “Comedown”) and Yellowcard (Smashing P...

10 Bands That Have Stood The Test Of Time
Have you ever heard a song on the radio and thought "Well, these guys won't be around for long?" We've all been there (most of us thought that when we heard Justin Bieber's "Baby"), but this list is for those of us who heard a song or saw a music video and said, "Wow, now these guys/girls have something special."

To kick off our list, we will start with one of the best bands of the eighties. Def Leppard headed up the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal and steamrolled the United States with their first hit song here, "Bringin' On The Heartbreak". To followup their albums "On Through The Nig...

DVD Review: Black Label Society - 'Unblackened'

January 8th, 2014 2:23pm EST
Black Label Society
If you have ever wanted to see Black Label Society in a different light, then there’s has perhaps been no better chance than their Unblackened release, a quasi-acoustic release that showcases just another facet to Zakk Wylde’s already loaded musical arsenal.

This is as laid back as you’ll ever find the normally burly and bearded hard rockers, a lengthy, stripped down, symphonic setlist that harkens all the way back to the band’s 1999 release Sonic Brew (“Spoke in the Wheel”) and 2000’s Stronger Than Death (“Rust”), though the staples are here, reimagined for all to see (“The Blessed Hellri...
