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...

Ozzy Osbourne Says He Can't Believe Black Sabbath's 'Remarkable' Success

Ozzy Osbourne
Heavy metal legend Ozzy Osbourne says he struggles to believe Black Sabbath's lengthy success story.

The 64-year-old singer has been blown away by the response to the group's reunion in 2012 and their new album this year 13, the first studio LP to feature Ozzy on vocals since 1978's Never Say Die!, which topped the album charts in eight countries.

Ozzy, who is joined in the band by guitarist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler, admits he thought the group probably had just a few years ahead of them when they formed in 1968 and is astounded that 45 years on people are still so passionate ...

Motorhead
Motorhead have canceled all European tour dates until next year in a bid to allow frontman Lemmy to fully recover from ongoing health issues.

The 76 year-old singer has been off the road since undergoing heart surgery and suffering a "severe hematoma" earlier this year, prompting the band to scrap a number of concerts.

Lemmy tried to return to the stage at a music festival in Germany back in August but had to cut the set short due to being too weak to continue.

Now, the Ace of Spades rockers have decided to cancel all dates until February so he has time to return to full fitness.

Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi: 'We Turned Down Ginger Baker Idea'

August 29th, 2013 10:29pm EDT
Tony Iommi
Heavy metal pioneers Black Sabbath ruled out recording a new album with legendary drummer Ginger Baker because they didn't want to have to deal with "problems" the unconventional former Cream member would bring with him.

Producer Rick Rubin suggested Baker as a replacement for Bill Ward after contractual issues prompted the band's original drummer to walk away from reunion plans, but guitarist Tony Iommi admits he and his band mates were not convinced the veteran rocker would be a good fit.

Iommi tells WWeek, "We put a stop on... We didn't want to go into the studio and have problems." ...
