Ah, YouTube. A place where people can find fantastic instructional and educational videos, music clips, original videos, and much more. Oh, and it’s also a place for parents to shove their kids down my throat even more than necessary. But once in a while there comes a kid that is pretty awesome.
Such is the case with YouTube user XxSassahmaxX‘s 3-year old Lukas, who is all about the brutal metal. Below you can watch a video of charming Lukas lip syncing to Korn‘s “Falling Away From Me”. And if you click on the username, there are a few other videos of Lukas tearing it up some more, including a video of him going at it with some Sepultura.
All I have to say is that if my kids don’t turn out liking and lip syncing to metal, I’m pretending I’m an Aztec, sacrificing them to Quetzalcoatl, and starting over. READ MORE

Audio mashup maestro Isosine has put together another mashup that shouldn’t work in the slightest and yet does (for example, Taylor Swift vs. Korn). Up now is the music from the Teletubbies with the vocals from Drowning Pool‘s smash hit “Bodies”. There is a free download link in the YouTube description but it’s not working for me. Once it’s up and running I’ll update with the download link (y’know, in case you want this song for your morning jog or something). Check out the video below. READ MORE

Love And Death, the band formed by ex-Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch, will be hitting the road with Thousand Foot Krutch on the 15-city “War Of Change” tour. You can see the full touring schedule below.
The band will be touring in support of their debut album Between Here And Lost, which will be released Jan. 22nd, 2013 via Tooth & Nail Records. The album was recorded in Nashville with producer Jasen Rauch (RED, Breaking Benjamin) and mixed by Paul Pavao & Ben Grosse (Marilyn Manson, Slipknot), and Jim Monti (Korn). READ MORE
Update: A video for the mash-up and a final download link can be found below.
Mash up maestro Isosine is back at it again, this time mixing Korn‘s “Coming Undone” with Taylor Swift‘s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”. On paper, that sounds so ludicrous and absurd that it can’t possibly work, can it? As a matter of fact, it works disturbingly well. You can stream/download the work in progress for freehere.
Head on below to hear the original songs for reference. READ MORE
Bloody-Disgusting is thrilled to bring you an exclusive interview with guitarist James ‘Munky’ Shaffer (Korn) about his side project Fear And The Nervous System.

Love And Death, the band with former Korn guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch, will be releasing their debut album Between Here And Lost on Nov. 20th via Tooth & Nail Records. The album will feature 11 tracks that were mixed by Paul Pavao & Ben Grosse (Marilyn Manson, Disturbed), and Jim Monti (Korn) and produced by Jasen Rauch (RED, Breaking Benjamin). Though no tour dates have been announced, it is said that the band will be touring extensively throughout 2013 to support this effort.
Welch states, “This record was birthed from trials, tribulations, pain, suffering, anxiety, depression, and drama. However, we came out on top and the end result is a very real, raw & honest record. We are so stoked for people to hear it! From our opening song ‘The Abandoning’, to our cover of Devo’s ‘Whip it’, to our collaboration with Mattie Montgomery from For Today on ‘I W8 4 U’, It’s an exciting piece of art and the listener will feel the different range of emotions with the lyrics & melodies of each song.”

I was hemming and hawing over what kind of descriptor I should use in the headline. Should it be an LOL? Nah, because some of them aren’t funny. Should it be a Random Cool? Ehhhh….maybe? I settled on OMFG because that was pretty much my reaction looking at each photo.
You see, below you’ll find an image that features 18 yearbook photos from some of the biggest names in rock and metal. You’ve got “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott, Eddie Van Halen, Gene Simmons, Tom Araya, and many more. It’ll definitely get a chuckle or two! Check it out below, READ MORE

In what might be the most horror-influenced tour of the year, shock-rockers Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie are teaming up for a US and European tour. Korn singer Jonathan Davis will be providing opening support as his DJ alter ego J-Devil.
Rob Zombie says, “Finally! Why did the most obvious tour take so long to happen? Who knows? Who cares? It’s happening now. If good taste is the chief enemy of great art, then we should be able to fill the Louvre with this fucking tour. Be prepared for something wicked this way a-coming.”
Marilyn Manson states, “I have sympathy for the Whore of Babylon that gave birth to these twins of evil, and this abomination of a tour. There is no babysitter, and there is no repairing her womb. If Rob Zombie doesn’t fuck you up, than I surely will. Hide all drugs and firearms…I’m coming to town.”
On August 7th, shock rocker/director Rob Zombie will release Mondo Sex Head, a remix album featuring artists such as J-Devil (Korn‘s Jonathan Davis), ††† (which features Chino from Deftones and members of Far), and more. To hype up the release, Zombie has released the artwork for the album as well as the track list (below). The USA version features the face of a kitten while the cover for the rest of the world features (shocker of all shockers) his wife Sheri Moon Zombie bare assed and provocatively posed. Wahoo… It’s worse than Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter or Paul W.S. Anderson and Milla Jovovich.
Zombie will also be releasing two separate, digital-only EPs before the album comes out. These EPs will features tracks from the album as well as bonus tracks.
You can pre-order the album here and read an interview with Zombie talking about the album over at Rolling Stone.
It’s a scenario that we’ve all thought of on more than one occasion: What would we do if we were being chased by one of the iconic horror movie villains? These may be some of the biggest, baddest, most violent opponents on the planet but we’ve got years upon years of horror movie viewing experience that has trained us for situations such as these.
Well, this question, and the potential solutions, is something that Love And Death bassist vALEntin3 has also given a great deal of thought to. Below you will find his list horror characters and what to do should they set their evil gaze upon you. Enjoy!

Inside you will find reviews for Soundgarden’s first brand new release since 1996’s “Down On The Upside”, Godsmack’s cover of Joe Walsh’ “Rocky Mountain Way”, a new song from P.O.D., the debut single from former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler’s new band (Adler), a new song from former Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch’s new band (Love and Death), as well as the latest release from My Darkest Days.

On April 11th, the Revolver Golden Gods took place, giving praise and recognition to the rock and metal community. Famous musicians, such as Dee Snider, Chris Jericho, Gene Simmons, Marilyn Manson, Slash, Amy Lee, and many more, were in attendance. It was a night meant to not only celebrate the achievements of rock and metal musicians and their offerings, but it was also a night for the fans, a way to honor their passion and their love. And it was a night that did absolutely nothing to spread the word and the importance of rock and metal. READ MORE

Korn has released Chaos Lives In Everything, which comes off their latest album The Path of Totality, as their latest music video. The video sets up the conflict when a skateboarder slams into a businessman who refuses to let it go. A chase ensues and suddenly the businessman is confronted by not one, not two, but SIX skateboarders. After a bit of roughhousing, the businessman grabs a skateboard, tries to break it on the ground, and then suddenly is skating with the kids. End video.
First of all, that makes absolutely no sense. What is that supposed to even mean? That businessmen need to lighten up? How about a compromise Korn? How about the businessman eases back a bit, maybe loosens his tie, IF those skateboarders stop acting like complete dicks. What say you? Think that can be worked out?
Oh, and I can’t tell you how sick I am of seeing videos use the whole “we’re gonna show this at normal speed BAM! SLOW MOTION! Okay, back into normal speeBAM! SLOW MOTION AGAIN! Now quick! Normal-SLOW-norm-SLOW-nor-SLOW SLOW SLOW!!!” Seriously, stop now.
