Like ‘em or not, Black Veil Brides are getting bigger and bigger. Personally, I’m not a fan but I can see how they fit into the Hot Topic scene (which is f*cking enormous). Honestly, they’re not too shabby when it comes to hard rock. Nothing to write home about but nothing that makes me want to shoot a baby panda in the face. However, what is the need for their look? Is all that make-up and leather really necessary? It’s like Marilyn Manson and Rob Halford popped out some children and BVB was born.
Say whatever you will about Ozzy Osbourne, but the man is the Prince of Darkness and he has been a part of creating some of the greatest metal the world has ever heard. Sure, at this point in his career, he’s doing Best Buy ads with Justin Bieber, but think of his glory days, such as when Diary of a Madman or Blizzard of Ozz came out. Well, you can relive those days on May 31st in much better audio quality! Both of those albums are going to be reissued with special editions made available. You can even order a super special edition, which comes with a full size replica of Ozzy’s cross here. While you wait, you can check out a really cool trailer after the jump, which features statements from Lemmy (Motorhead), Rob Halford (Judas Priest), Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society), and more.

Rob Halford is ready for the holidays. The Judas Priest frontman just dropped what might be the most “metal” Christmas album ever— Winter Songs. It’s a collection of raw and ripping rock n’ roll that sizzles with the Christmas spirit. So how is Mr. Halford preparing for Santa to slide down the chimney? By talking to us about his favorite horror movies, of course! We asked Rob what his favorite horror flicks were, and he was a stoked to answer.
Read on for a look at the list. READ MORE
