Rumor: Misfits hire drumming machine, ex-Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo

Blabbermouth is currently reporting that the word going around the rumor mill is that the Misfits have recruited ex-Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo to play with them live during their two scheduled reunion shows. Danzig, Jerry Only, and Doyle have announced that the original lineup for the Misfits would feature them playing together again but didn’t mention a drummer. This could be very interesting with the consideration of what Dave Lombardo currently has on his plate. He’s putting the finishing touches on the debut album of his new band, Dead Cross and he has also stepped in for Suicidal Tendencies to record drums for their new album as well. What’s next?

Korn present ‘Rotting In Vain’ music video and details on new album

And it’s extremely nostalgic. Previously, Korn played Rotting In Vain during their set last Saturday at the Chicago Open Air Festival. Now, there’s a music video to go with it as well as an update on a few details about the forthcoming album. Korn‘s upcoming twelfth studio album will be entitled  The Serenity of Suffering which is slated to hit stores on October 21st. Rotting In Vain should serve as a nice taste as it screams old school Korn. This single is definitely reminiscent of their 1994 self-titled debut. Rotting In Vain can be purchased now and The Serenity of Suffering is also available for pre-order wherever music is sold.

My Chemical Romance isn’t reuniting.

It’s sad to say, but the video that My Chemical Romance recently put on their Facebook page was all but a teaser trailer for a 10th Anniversary re-issue of The Black Parade. You shouldn’t be completely let down as this could mean anything; unreleased tracks, exclusives, and/or anything else. The slated but still yet to be confirmed release date is on September 26th, 2016. We will have more later as details are made available. What a bummer!

My Chemical Romance is teasing us.

If you’ve been on any form of social media within the past day or two and happen to follow My Chemical Romance, then you’ve probably noticed that something is going on. Over at MCR‘s Facebook page, you will notice that they’ve posted a new logo as well as a teaser that features the beginning chord for Welcome To The Black Parade which also features a cryptic date; September 26th, 2016 to be specific. This leads to all sorts of speculation that the band could be getting back together for either a one-off reunion or getting back together for good. A new album is also a possibility. Take this with a grain of salt as this is purely speculation at this point until that date is finally here. We will know more as details unfold.

Megadeth release ‘Post American World’ video

Megadeth have released a music video for the track, Post American World,  that coincides with their latest album, Dystopia. 

As quoted on MetalHammer, Mustaine says: “Post American World was an eerie video shoot right from the beginning. Shot in just one day with only our guitars and drums, I knew that this was going to be amazing.

“There’s something to be said about the simplicity of an artist and only his guitar or drums. This is a less-is-more concept, and director Jake Macpherson nailed it.”

Corey Taylor will be featured on Korn’s new album

Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman, Corey Taylor, is set to make an appearance on Korn‘s forthcoming 12th studio album. Guitarist, James ‘Munky’ Shaffer, was quoted telling Metal Hammer that Corey is “really loose” on the song that he is featured on and even went on to say that this is one of the heaviest albums that Korn has ever recorded. Since Brian ‘Head’ Welch‘s return to Korn, it is the second album to feature him respectively with the first being 2013’s The Paradigm Shift. This should be very interesting and quite different. More details to come as they unfold.
