Why Megadeth’s “Killing is my Business…………..And Business is Good” is an important album
http://metalhammer.teamrock.com/features/2015-06-01/why-killing-is-my-business-is-one-of-metal-s-most-important-debuts

I really hope the new Megadeth album is released this year?

Big Wreck shared it……

What is “nu metal”? Is it a sub genre of groups people don’t know where other bands should fit? There are a TON of bands labeled as nu metal, but none of them have anything in common sound wise? Here’s 4 bands labeled as nu metal…

Do any of these sound remotely similar? Not to me. Am I missing something? Why are these groups all labeled as ‘nu metal’? For me it’s more of a “….I don’t know what hole these square pegs fit in?….”

Ed Sheeran plays metal songs on the Tonight show with Jimmy Fallon!

This is what he played at the end of the show.

The more Ed Sheeran I hear, the more I like him. When I heard his first album, I thought it was some of the most unique music I had ever heard!

“One week” from today on iTunes “Cauterize” by Mark Tremonti of Alter Bridge. “Drones” by Muse!

I was all hyped up about seeing “Halestorm” in Moose Jaw, then realized they were opening for “Three Days Grace”. I’m not a fan of “Three Days Grace”

I’m on the fence about this show, it’s a Tuesday in November & I don’t like going out during the week. We’ll see how much tickets are I guess. Moose Jaw is much closer than Saskatoon the next day!

The Gallagher brothers together as members of “Oasis” were arguing constantly in the ’90s. Kept themselves in the news with a new argument almost every other day. Here’s what Noel Gallagher has to say to “One Direction”

A lot of music for me yet to come out this year. Muse, Tremonti, Walk off the Earth, Lamb of God, Finger Eleven, Stone Temple Pilots, Tool, Megadeth, Into Eternity & maybe other surprises like the new Zac Brown Band which is really good!

Songs I like! “I Mother Earth” I REALLY like them! Based in Ontario, Canada. 2 songs from each (four) albums & a few singles they are releasing now. I can almost hear my mother screaming at my brother & I washing dishes after supper while listening to these guys, “TURN THAT CRAP DOWN!!!” Hahahahahaha!

Singles…
