The first truly seismic release week is officially here and, with it, a brass-knuckled fistful of new records from some of the genre’s tenure-track heavy hitters. Hope you’ve been saving those holiday pennies, everyone. You’re gonna need them.
Alright. Here we go. This One Goes To Eleven is officially back from the August dead, and just in time too, with one of the craziest metal weeks of the year waiting in the wings. Grab those headphones, credit cards, and PBRs and let’s get down to business.
Alright everyone, settle in and savor this one, because not only is there a Costco-sized of new sonic insanity on tap, but it’s also the last you’re going to get for a fortnight on account of my upcoming “summer vacation” (if you want call a long weekend in Cooperstown such a thing). Apologies in advance and, as always, take your time perusing the wares.
It’s a slower week here at the metal lake house, so grab your finest pair of black cut-offs, double bass kick back, and enjoy the late 3rd quarter calm before the 4th quarter storm. Oh, and if you’re thirsty, the beer is in the fridge, as always.
An ex-lead singer of epic New York thrash metal band Anthrax is suing his former band-mates and the band’s accounting firm according to the Manhattan Federal Court.
Dan Nelson, who joined the band in December of 2007 is suing drummer Charlie Benante, bassist Frank Bello and guitarist Scott Ian along with Berdon LLP for $2.65 million.
Nelson and the band parted ways in July of 2009 and their tour was cancelled, but not because Nelson “abruptly resigned” due to illness, the suit claims.
This was the reason for the tour cancellation according to a July 2009 press release from the band.
