Heaven’s Basement are gearing up for the Feb. 5th release of their debut album Filthy Empire, which was produced by John Feldmann (The Used, Papa Roach, Black Veil Brides). The band has also just released the official album artwork, which you can see below.
But just because they’re looking forward with great anticipation doesn’t mean they aren’t taking a moment to reflect back and appreciate 2012. Below, you can see what they picked for their Album of the Year as well as their Movie of the Year. READ MORE
I…I hear something. It’s close but I can’t see where it is. Is it…could it be? Oh, dear god! It is! It’s another Twisted Music Video Of The Week!
This week I’m bring you a band called Heaven’s Basement and their video for “Fire, Fire”, which comes off the upcoming debut album Filthy Empire. The album, which has no set release date aside from “early 2013″ and will be released via Red Bull Records, was produced by John Feldman (The Used, Papa Roach, Black Veil Brides). The video shows the band rocking out in front of a pile of tires (correction: a HUGE pile of tires) while clips of actual riots, forest fires, explosions, floods, and more are interspersed. You can check out the video below.
The song is pretty damn awesome. It’s a catchy “arena hard rock” track that hearkens back to days when a hard rock song was just plain old fun. You can also download the song for free by ‘Liking’ the band’s Official Facebook page here. READ MORE

It’s widely known that the readers of Bloody Disgusting have their opinions about the SAW series. Whether you love it, hate it, or couldn’t care less, you can’t deny that the SAW films are capable of eliciting a reaction from viewers; but what about the reaction it gets from listeners? Every SAW film has a pretty intense soundtrack to match, and the wide usage of hard rock and heavy metal across all the releases is perfect for Bloody Disgusting readers. Here’s my rank of all seven films’ soundtracks from worst to best – but I’ll leave the actual movies talk up to you guys.
I dont care what anyone says, if you’ve just been broken up with, you are not a happy person. And pretty much nothing about you is happy for the next few weeks, or months, or (hopefully not) years. First things first, let’s listen to some good ole’ break-up jams. Then we’ll get back to the sobbing, bitching, and late night text messages. Try to keep it together while I list my top 10 post-break-up songs. READ MORE
Editor’s Note: The art show is in Augusta, not Atlanta. Album artist Aaron Crawford will be premiering his first solo art show, ‘Pause And Claws’, on May 6th at Sky City in downtown Augusta.

Aaron has done artwork for such bands as Attila, Suicide Silence, After The Burial, Veil Of Maya, Kittie, The Used, and more. Check out some examples after the jump as well as an exclusive quote for Bloody-Disgusting.
