Ex-Sworn Enemy guitarist Lorenzo Antonucci has put together a video (that was shot at the Sumerian Records offices) calling out Falling In Reverse vocalist Ronnie Radke (who used to be the singer of Escape The Fate) for his incredibly egomaniacal attitude that includes kicking support act I See Stars off of the “The Thug In Me Is You Tour”, throwing fans out of venues for simply wearing t-shirts or chanting “I See Stars!”, and, perhaps the most idiotic, throwing microphone stands into the audience at Six Flags in Jackson, NJ, causing physical harm to several fans AND banning all future metal shows from ever playing that venue again. Below is the video that includes fan interviews, news coverage, and footage of Radke being an egotistical prick. Also below are statements from I See Stars and Ronnie Radke. READ MORE
It’s Friday and some free music might be just what you need to get the weekend started off in the right way, don’t you think? Well, Enter Shikari have released a completely free EP entitled Live in London NW5, which you can snag here. The band, which mixes metal, pop, dance, and other musical elements, just got off a six-week, largely sold out tour of the United States and will now be focusing on touring Europe and Asia with many festival dates. During the States tour, the band also filmed a music video for “Warm Smiles Do Not Make You Welcome Here”, which was directed by Raul Gonzo (January, VersaEmerge).
You can check out a multi-camera video of their performance of System/Meltdown at the London show below. READ MORE
Although Ohio-based metalcore troupe Attack Attack!‘s intention of making This Means War a seamless, fluent record is obvious even before the first listen (a quick scan of the album’s track listing reveals the repeated use of the word “the” in every song title), I was expecting a smooth record – not a repetitive one. But alas, I was once again confronted with a rather disappointing release from the four piece. After their bland rerelease of their self-titled album in summer 2011 (review), I was hoping Attack Attack! would redeem themselves with their third studio effort, and although this record is definitely worthy of a few kudos, it was not on par with what I would typically expect from the creative, genre-blending band I love.
