BlizzCon, the Blizzard convention (duh) that showcases everything you could possibly want to fan boy over with their series of games. Starcraft, Warcraft, Diablo and more! Well closing out the entire convention is the legendary band Metallica who will be performing on the night of November 8th to a sold out crowd. Can’t make the show? The “Blizzcon Virtual Ticket” will allow you to view the concert, as well as the entire weekend event, from the comfort and judgement free area of your computer desk. More info below!
No intro, just scroll down and press play on everything.
As the Slayer-esque “God Hates Us All” sounding intro takes place….you get ready for the oncoming onslaught as Revocation tears out of the gates at the start of the album. Going from 0-60 in 1 second, the band rips into a bad ass yet semi-familiar riff and the drumming goes on like mad. Yes, it’s finally here, a new Revocation full length album!
Sean Parker threw a massive ultra expensive ass wedding in some forest and made all of his guests wear Tolkien inspired costumes to the ceremony. That’s not all, Lars Ulrich, the guy who was in that band who tried to destroy Napster, was there.
Scale The Summit have become one of my personal favorite instrumental progressive bands as they write song after song of epic beauty. Here is a studio video of them recording/tracking for their new album, “The Migration”.
If you don’t believe me on the epic beauty part, buy their last album, The Collective, for just $6.99! You won’t regret it!
Yes, it’s true. The Metallica crew has their entire catalog on Spotify now. Times are a changin’ and Metallica realizes this and now you can stream Metallica 24/7 for absolutely FREE. Purchase the “Premium” package though to stream St. Anger on your iPhone. I suggest playing it over the built in speaker and let the entire bus enjoy the album with you! You’ll be an absolute hit!
Metallica took over the Voodoo Music + Art Festival for Green Day but they didn’t let those die hard dookie fans down. James Hetfield said some nice things about Green Day and began to play some “American Idiot” for the fans. Good sports all around. Enjoy the video after the jump.
Visit Metallica’s website to download the three songs: Creeping Death, Hell and Back & The Call of Ktulu. These were recorded during the bands soundcheck at the Orion Fest earlier this year. The site states:
Special 3-song soundcheck recorded the day before the big Orion Music + More festival.
Since this was a loose rehearsal, James did not sing the first verse of “Creeping Death” as he was walking around the catwalk along the Snake Pit surveying the grounds while playing guitar.
