On This Day 33 Years Ago METALLICA Release Their Debut Album "Kill 'Em All"

Kill 'Em All is the debut studio album by the American thrash metal band Metallica, released on July 25, 1983, by the independent label Megaforce Records. Kill 'Em All is considered as a groundbreaking album for thrash metal because it's new wave and combination of british heavy metal riffs with hardcore punk tempos. Its musical approach and lyrics were markedly different from rock's mainstream of the early Eighties and inspired a number of bands who followed in similar pattern. 

When Elektra reissued the album in 1988, Kill 'Em All was certified 3× platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in 1999 for shipping three million copies in the United States. The album generated two singles: "Whiplash" and "Jump in the Fire" and was critically praised at the time of its release and was placed on a few publications' best album lists. 

The album was recorded in May with producer Paul Curcio at the Music America Studios in Rochester, New York. It was originally intended to be titled Metal Up Your Ass, with cover art featuring a hand clutching a dagger emerging from a toilet bowl. The band was asked to change the name because distributors feared releasing an album with such an offensive title and artwork would diminish its chances of commercial success. Metallica promoted the album on the two-month co-headlining Kill 'Em All for One tour with Raven in the United States. Although the initial shipment was 15,000 copies in the US, the album sold 60,000 copies worldwide by the end of Metallica's Seven Dates of Hell European tour in 1984.

Kill 'Em All is the album that featured Dave Mustaine (MEGADETH) as the lead guitar before finally fired after a gig in New York because of his drug and alcohol problems, overly aggressive behavior, and clashes with bandmates. Later on, Metallica recruited Kirk Hammett, who played in Exodus and was a one-time student of Joe Satriani.

Track listing
1. "Hit the Lights"
2. "The Four Horsemen"
3. "Motorbreath"
4. "Jump in the Fire"
5. "(Anesthesia) - Pulling Teeth" (instrumental)
6. "Whiplash"
7. "Phantom Lord"
8. "No Remorse"
9. "Seek & Destroy"
10. "Metal Militia"

DEVILDRIVER Premiere Video 'My Night Sky'

"My Night Sky" is the new video from California's groove metal DEVILDRIVER. Directed by Shan Dan ( with set production by Jon Cook

The track is taken from the band's seventh studio album, "Trust No One", on May 13 via Napalm Records following to 2013's "Winter Kills". The album produced by Mark Lewis (ARSIS, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, WHITECHAPEL, DEVILDRIVER, DEICIDE, SIX FEET UNDER) with assistance from Jason Suecof (AUGUST BURNS RED, DEICIDE, DEATH ANGEL). The new CD marks the group's first release since the departures of guitarist Jeff Kendrick and drummer John Boecklin and addition of axeman Neal Tiemann and former CHIMAIRA sticksman Austin D'Amond.

DEVILDRIVER frontman Dez Fafara recently told Full Metal Jackie about the "Trust No One" album title: "I raised my children with a huge sticker on the refrigerator for a long time saying 'Question Authority.' And 'Trust No One' is basically along [those] lines. I don't think that 'Question Authority' would have worked for a title. But you've gotta really watch people, and you've gotta watch 'em before you bring 'em into your circle, and after you do bring them into your circle, then you've gotta watch 'em even closer. And as they exit, you'll realize that a lot of the times you bring in people, and as they exit, they are not, or were not, what they said they were the whole time they were in your life."

He continued: "I'm a very private person and my circle is very small. I have had some monumental fallouts over the years with some people, both personal and in business. And, basically, because you come to a realization where positivity is more important than anything in your life. And if someone is bringing you negativity, bringing you down, not having a good time with you or around whatever you are doing, you know, it's time to vacate the situation. 'Cause I am a glass-half-full guy; I'm always pretty positive, and I'm always willing to have a really good time. So, in the last couple years, that's been what's going on with me. I've been, 'Look, are you positive in my life? Okay, cool. Come around more. If you are not, I may lose your phone number.'"

DEVILDRIVER recently tapped former WAYNE STATIC guitarist Diego Ibarra (a.k.a. Ashes) to play bass on its upcoming tour, which kicks off at the end of next month. Ibarra joins DEVILDRIVER as the replacement for former BURY YOUR DEAD guitarist Chris Towning, who appeared on the Dez Fafara-fronted band's 2013 album "Winter Kills".

On This Day, 26 Years Ago, PANTERA Released Cowboys From Hell

On this day, 26 years ago, PANTERA released their 5th studio album Cowboy From Hell via Atco Records.

Recorded in 1989 at Pantego Sound Studio in Pantego, Texas, the album has been considered by most critics as one of the most influential albums in the metal scene in the 1990s and of all time, and would inspire a generation of musicians, particularly guitarists. 

Critical Reception:
IGN says:
"Along with Vulgar Display of Power, Pantera's fifth album is not only considered one of the band's best, but is also one of the defining albums of early '90s metal. The band's chemistry really begins to gel with collective symmetry here, as a pre-Dimebag Darrell (he was known as Diamond Darrell back then) rips the strings of his axe like a rabid weasel, frontman Phil Anselmo following in kind with chaotic vocal utterances, and the rhythm section of Vinnie Paul and Rex Brown keeping the rhythms in check and the whole mess glued together with low end prowess."

AllMusic says about the album:
"Pantera's breakthrough album, Cowboys from Hell, is largely driven by the band's powerful rhythm section and guitarist Diamond Darrell(s) unbelievably forceful riffing, which skittered around the downbeats to produce unexpected rhythmic phrases and accents, as well as his inventive soloing."

Band formation at that time
  • Phil Anselmo – lead vocals
  • Dimebag Darrell – guitar, backing vocals
  • Rex – bass, acoustic guitar, piano (5)
  • Vinnie Paul – drums
Album track listing
All songs written and composed by Pantera.
1. "Cowboys from Hell"
2. "Primal Concrete Sledge"
3. "Psycho Holiday"
4. "Heresy"
5. "Cemetery Gates"
6. "Domination"
7. "Shattered"
8. "Clash with Reality"
9. "Medicine Man"
10 ."Message in Blood"
11. "The Sleep"
12. "The Art of Shredding"

MEGADETH Release The Official Video "Post American World"

Megadeth have released a new music video for their single "Post American World."

Mustaine told the Houston Press that he considered "Post American World" to be a spiritual (and riff-wise) follow-up to MEGADETH's popular track "Symphony Of Destruction". He also said: “Post American World was an eerie video shoot right from the beginning. Shot in just one day with only our guitars and drums, I knew that this was going to be amazing. There’s something to be said about the simplicity of an artist and only his guitar or drums. This is a less-is-more concept, and director Jake Macpherson nailed it.”

"Dystopia" shifted 49,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending January 28. In terms of pure album sales, "Dystopia" opened with 48,000 copies, marking MEGADETH's highest-charting album since 1992's "Countdown To Extinction" debuted and peaked at No. 2 on the chart dated August 1 of that year. "Dystopia" also logged the group's best sales week since 2007, when "United Abominations" landed at No. 8 with first-week sales of 54,000.

Megadeth confirmed their North American tour dates with Havok, Metal Church, Amon Amarth, and, Suicidal Tendencies. There will be 18-show run starting from September 20, with tickets on sale on July 22 (Friday). 

The video features what is likely Chris Adler's last appearance with the band, as just last week Megadeth confirmed their new permanent drummer will be Dirk Verbeuren, formerly of Soilwork. Meanwhile, Verbeuren’s former band Soilwork have wished him well with his new position. Vocalist Bjorn ’Speed’ Strid says: “Together we have created a beast of a band. I strongly believe this is very much a new era for us – and that we still have so much left to say.”

Dirk Verbeuren of SOILWORK is the New MEGADETH Drummer

Dirk Verbeuren, former drummer of Swedish melodic death metal band SOILWORK has been announced as the MEGADETH new drummer. 

Verbeuren, has been performing with the band for months, his first show was Rock on the Range festival in May, to a crowd of 40,000 concertgoers.

Verbeuren was with SOILWORK between early 2004 and July 2016. Recorded five full-length albums before finally replaced Chris Adler as the permanet drummer of MEGADETH.

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine said “Chris Adler‘s contributions are sure to be felt for years to come. MEGADETH has been revitalized by Chris‘ playing, as well as his excellent suggestion of Dirk Verbeuren to drum with us. Tremendous thanks to Chris, and a big welcome to Dirk.”

New drummer Verbeuren had this to say: “Dave, David and Kiko, I’m thankful for your warm welcome and thrilled at the opportunity to perform and create badass music with you guys. Chris Adler, thank you for introducing me to MEGADETH – and for your encouragement and support.”

Said Adler: “It has been an honor and a pleasure to join my favorite band of all time, and to be a part of their return to the top. I had an amazing time with everyone involved, from the writing, arranging and recording, to the touring and friendships built along the way. There was no argument or drama, no hidden story. MEGADETH needs and deserves a full time drummer, and as much as I’d like to be, I can’t be in two places at once. For my part, I am very lucky to be a part of LAMB OF GOD, and to also have gotten a chance to dance with my heroes at the ball. I still can’t believe it sometimes when I think of myself as a kid, opening up my MEGADETH albums…and now I’m an alumni! I’m very proud of that – and I will continue to be their biggest fan.”

Verbeuren is endorsed by Tama drums and sticks, Meinl cymbals, Evans drumheads, Toontrack software, dB drumshoes and Alien Ears in-ear monitors.

Happy 35th Anniversary ANTHRAX

Happy Anniversary ANTHRAX. On July 18th 1981 ANTHRAX was formed in New York city.

Anthrax was formed in Queens, New York City, on July 18, 1981 by guitarists Scott Ian and Dan Lilker. The band was named after the disease of the same name which Ian saw in a biology textbook.

Kahn was briefly replaced by bassist Kenny Kushner before Lilker took over on bass and Greg Walls joined as lead guitarist. Weiss was then replaced early on by Greg D'Angelo, who was recommended to the band by Greg Walls. Scott Ian's younger brother Jason Rosenfeld was a temporary vocalist until Ian's former schoolmate Neil Turbin joined the band in late August 1982. The band recorded its first demo tape during this time. Charlie Benante (drums) later joined in 1983 followed by Frank Bello (bass) and Joey Belladonna (lead vocals) in 1984

Today, Antharx has 11 studio album with the current line up:
- Scott Ian – rhythm guitar, backing vocals, occasional lead vocals (1981–present)
- Charlie Benante – drums, percussion, occasional lead guitar (1983–present)
- Frank Bello – bass guitar, backing vocals (1984–2004, 2005–present)
- Joey Belladonna – lead vocals (1984–1992, 2005–2007, 2010–present)
- Jonathan Donais – lead guitar, backing vocals (2013–present)

DESPISED ICON Release Official Video "Bad Vibes"

Montreal based deathcore band, DESPISED ICON just released "Bad Vibes" music video from the album "BEAST" out on July 22, 2016 via Nuclear Blast Records. The video was directed by Jessy Fuchs

"We've often been vocal about the classic death metal bands that have influenced us throughout the years but have rarely discussed the grindcore and hardcore elements in our music," states vocalist Alex Erian. "Our new single 'Bad Vibes' is raw, straight forward and reminiscent of bands like Napalm Death, Brutal Truth, Biohazard, and Madball. The 90's were a defining decade for us and so we opted for that old school look when putting together this new music video. Beast comes out in a week. Get into it!"

The new album "Beast" was produced and engineered by former guitarist Yannick St-Amand (Beneath The Massacre, Neuraxis) and mixed/mastered by Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Opeth, Nevermore). Artwork was created by Alexandre Goulet.
