Today marks the release of Device’s debut full-length, the self-titled Device. The brainchild of Disturbed frontman David Draiman, Device features Filter guitarist Geno Lenardo and a slew of guest artists, including Lzzy Hale (Halestorm), Serj Tankian (System Of A Down), and more. It is a project that has drawn the interest of countless Disturbed enthusiasts, especially since the announcement of the group’s hiatus in 2011.
With all of these guest artists and one of today’s most recognizable vocalists, is there any way that this debut could fail? Head on below to read my thoughts on the album! READ MORE

Female characters are perhaps one of the hottest, touchiest topics in horror. Are they there as damsels in distress? Are they there simply for scintillating, sexual eye candy? Are they equal to their male counterparts? Regardless of the thoughts surrounding this subject, there is no argument that horror has provided some truly badass female characters.
And with all this in mind, Knee High Fox singer Christine Connolly (who also appeared in 2006′s Underworld: Evolution) has put together a list of her 10 Favorite Females In Horror, which you can check out below!
Also below is the music video for “Black Widow”, which you can purchase on iTunes. The band will be releasing their debut album sometime in 2013. It is being produced by Howard Benson (Halestorm, Red, Art Of Dying). READ MORE

The official 2013 Grammy nominations list has been released and, as per usual, it takes the opportunity to laud and celebrate what the radios and mass media have been shoving down our throats for the past year (thank god we can use mp3 players and dictate what we want to listen to, right?). Now, I basically just completely ignored the vast majority of categories and immediately scanned down to find the four categories that interested me: Best Rock Performance, Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance, Best Rock Song, and Best Rock Album. And what I found was pretty…well, it was pretty confusing. READ MORE
