Bush Release New Video For “The Only Way Out”
Rossdale recently said that ‘The Only Way Out‘ is “a good gateway into the record. This record gets a bit wider and probably a little darker. This is just the right way in.”
He said in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, about the ‘Man on the Run’ title. “When you first begin writing songs, you see the world and your time as infinite, because that’s the nature of being young. As you get older, you see it as chapters. The title ‘Man on the Run’ is meant as a universal take on a slice of my life and the people I come across. It just seems that the doors are closing and everyone is trying to figure out their way. It’s the most universal title we’ve ever had.”
Exodus Puts Out “Blood In, Blood Out” Full Album Teaser
“I’m gonna tell you right now, ‘Blood In, Blood Out’ is the best Exodus record by far,” says Souza. “And I’m not saying that ’cause I just rejoined. Honestly, the musicianship of everyone in it, the writing, the lyrics, the lyrical content… everything all the way through. 11 killers, no fillers. I swear to God, and I mean it. I put out another record earlier this year with my other band, Hatriot, and I thought that was the greatest thrash record of the year, and I just have to say that that’s probably the second greatest thrash record of the year. ‘Blood In, Blood Out’, by far, is amazing. It’s awesome from top to bottom.”
Trent Reznor On ‘Gone Girl’ Score
In a Rolling Stone interview, Reznor talks about David Fincher’s upcoming film ‘Gone Girl,’ calling it “surprisingly nasty.” He said, “When I first saw a good chunk of the film, it felt like he went there. It’s uncompromising. I felt it was a surprisingly nasty film on a few levels – the parody side of it, the commentary on society and the media right now, the rumination on marriage.” Reznor added, “A lot of it stuck with you. And it goes into a couple of gratuitous directions at times, which I think adds to the power.” He continued saying the film “felt like a thrill ride.”
Jesper Stromblad Formerly Of In Flames Responds To Fans
Stromblad opened up to fans on facebook. Most wanted to know why he left. Read his response below.
I posted the other day that you should submit questions for me to answer. Well as 99% is about the same subject I can make some things clear once and for all, for save you the trouble to ask;
-Will I ever return to In Flames? No one never knows what the future brings, but the chances are slim as they embarked on a different musical journey, they have a solid lineup and I’m on a totally different path in life right now. I would never go into details why I quit, but there is always one official story and there is the other … Alcohol is a quite small part of it. That can also answer the next question, what do I think of their new stuff. Listen to The Resistance and that explains a bit of it. We simply went different directions. I need to stand behind and feel inspired with what I do 100%. I owe it to the fans and obviously the band — all respect to In Flames and their new approach, but for me the band was a guitar/riff based melo death band. And it’s not anymore, but still amazing musicianship and I don’t think its wrong. but it’s not the vision I had when we started out. But still, all respect to them and the huge success, highly deserved! So please, I wish, change the comment from “come back to IF”, to “welcome Niklas Engelin”, who is one of the nicest talented guys, and the one who fill my shoes perfect, and brings back an amazing energy live and personally!
So there you have it.
I do not and will never compromise with my music. I’m on a new path together with the guys in TR who made me want to play again and the good feeling of being a part of a band. Dedication, friendship, genuine passion for the music! Money, fame grammys e t c doesn’t matter a crap if U don’t have your not committed 100% to it. I also have a solo album coming up, a facebreaking EP and album with The Resistance and some other exciting projects. so….. everyone is where they belong.. I’m in a band I love. IF do their thing great… all good:) love you all #TTD #soberandrelevant
Life In The Slipknot Camp Is Pretty Damn Good
Root said in a recent interview, “I think they did really well considering the circumstances that were thrown at them.”
He adds, “We threw the book at the drummer, we f—in’ put him through the ringer. He did not have it easy. But he was up to the challenge with everything that we threw at him. He took it all and props to him for that. The bass player was a little bit of a different situation, because we kind of had a little bit of a revolving door of dudes coming in and out and trying things. Even Donnie [Steele] came into the studio for a while and it [was] just to a point where we were struggling looking for somebody and then the right guy presented himself sort of at the last minute. It worked out pretty cool.”
“Life in the Slipknot camp is pretty damn good right now. I used to be really hesitant and reluctant and resistant to say such things. [Laughs] Actually, everything’s pretty cool. But I don’t want to jinx it.”
“This band is an anomaly and we never [know] what’s gonna happen and so we tend to just take things day by day, but everything’s looking really good right now and we’re getting along really well and everybody’s talking and we’re communicating. And I think that’s only gonna get better as we hit the road.”
Mastodon Defend Controversial “The Motherload” Video
In a recent interview Mastodon explains the concept behind the controversial “The Motherload” video. “The only concept was we wanted to start off as a sort of parody of a ‘90s heavy metal video,” Dailor begins. “All those videos from the early ‘90s had that same look: some kind of esoteric imagery, sort of out of focus, something creepy or weird. Marilyn Manson, Metallica, Nirvana, they all had the same kind of look to their videos. We wanted to do that, and I guess I thought that maybe people would be concerned that it wasn’t very imaginative if it was some kind of sh—y ‘90s video. Then all of a sudden, twerking started happening, and it kind of went from there. I just wanted to make something that was bizarre—that would confuse people. I also thought to myself, what’s the most bizarre thing, or what’s something people would say completely does not belong in a Mastodon video? And the twerking was sort of what I came up with.”
“With the video itself, we wanted to make sure that the women that were there were in charge and that they were having fun. They made the video what it is. If it wasn’t for them and their talent and going out and doing flips and splits and just bringing it, it wouldn’t be great. All of them are forces of nature. It was amazing to meet them and amazing to watch them do their thing. There’s a scene where the garage door starts to open, and Khristine Moore, who plays the ‘queen,’ is there. It gives me chills when I watch that, she just looks so awesome.”
Jimmy Page Wants To Put A New Band Together
“If I was to play again it would be with musicians that would be… some of the names might be new to you. I haven’t put them together yet but I’m going to do that next year. If I went out to play, I would play material that spanned everything from my recording career right back to my very, very early days with The Yardbirds. There would certainly be some new material in there as well.”
“I love playing live, I really do. Live concerts are always an interesting challenge because it means you can always change things as you’re playing every night. You can make it even more of an adventure. I would play all of the things I’m known to play – instrumental versions of ‘Dazed And Confused’ etcetera, etcetera…”
