Bloody-Disgusting is thrilled to bring you the exclusive premiere for Dying Fetus and their “Second Skin” video! Directed by Jakob Arevarn, the video shows the mental and physical collapse of a child molester/murderer. As he descends into the depths of his own diseased mind, his body begins falling apart. Ultimately, he is faced with a creature that looks like something out of a Guillermo Del Toro film, and that’s when things get really insane. This video is not for the weakhearted, so take care when watching it! READ MORE

I’ll fully admit that I never really got into this band. However, I did get to hang out with them during the MTV Headbangers Ball 2 Tour, which also had Damageplan, Drowning Pool, and some others that I can’t remember off the top of my head (hey, it was about nine years ago). They seemed like cool guys, so best of luck to ‘em! READ MORE

In an article about Wade Page, the ex-soldier who brutally murdered six people at a Sikh temple in Milwaukee, WI, and his white power music relations, Anti-Defamation League director Lonnie Nasatir tagged the heavy metal band Hatebreed as one of many white supremacist bands operating today. Naturally, the Hatebreed camp didn’t take kindly to this connection. Singer Jamey Jasta took to Twitter to say, “CNN fixed that story & said they “regret the error” but it still sucks to be labeled that when we’ve NEVER been down w/ racism.” He continued by stating, “Our music & message has always been about bringing people together, not tearing them apart. Hardcore, metal, punk, all races, religions etc“.
Review by Chris Lockett: It’s been four years since Christian Nu-Metal band P.O.D. released their last album, and now, having dealt with an uncertain future, the band is back with its original lineup, and set to release their eighth studio album Murdered Love. The band has garnered a reputation as being very hit or miss, and the general consensus on their last two studio albums is that they were lackluster to say the least. But with the odds seemingly against them, has P.O.D. been able to craft a listenable album, or should the band have just quit while they were ahead? Hit the jump to find out. READ MORE
