Asking Alexandria has primed us for something big and here it is! The band has just dropped a new single and video for the track “Violence”. Less a music video and more like a stylized Zombie Apocalypse and horror genre mini-movie, it’s totally sick and has a ton of production value. The NSFW created by the band and the team of director Jensen Noen, producers Sam Malko, Brand Birtwistle, and Joe Grayem, DP Brandon Cox, and Executive Producer Steven Contreras.

Gamers gotta game. It’s as simple as that. The same passion that drives people to obsess over game franchises isn’t too far removed from music fandom. Perhaps it is more intense and dedicated as a fanbase, especially when you consider no one has ever died from 118 hours straight of listening to Code Orange. Before the advent of music-based games had their moment in the culture, music has been an integral part of the gaming experience. As these two worlds collided from noble 8-bit bleeps to full-blown symphony productions, the has been a crossover. For every Castlevania, Final Fantasy, Bioshock Infinite, and Legend of Zelda, there are a lot of duds. However, few bands have had a winning association with a franchise like Avenged Sevenfold has with Call of Duty: Black Ops. With the advent of Black Ops 4, out now, the band has released their corresponding EP, Black Regin with the four tracks that are specially written to be woven into game-play. Continue reading

Heavy Metal Movies (Bazillion Points), written by Mike “Beardo” McPadden is a project the likes of which any metal geek-movie geek fusion would be proud to have accomplished in their lives; proof that they have indeed seen more movies than you, and can tell you how headbangingly awesome each is in their own way. Indeed, this titanic titanium tome does indeed show, rather than tell the sheer amount of neck-snapping cinematography observed by one man needed to even dare a book of this lethal thickness. From A to Z, it’s an outpouring of movie mayhem and magick from teenage stoner boners to Nordic loners; rockumentaries and mockumentaries; canon appearances by the metal gods on screen and on record; from swords to spaceships, and from monsters to Manson (Editor’s note: both Charles and Marilyn), this book packs it all in, dating from the silent era Nosferatu (1922) to the modern Hollywood bombast of The Hobbit (2012) and a whole hell of a lot of stuff in between that inspired distortion, patched denim, leather, and poor hygiene worldwide.
