    More than any other metal band in history, being a hardcore Megadeth fan is truly a rollercoaster ride. This is a band with multiple duds in their catalog, and yet they always seem to rebound. Think about it, they’ve truly had some bad releases in their catalog. RISK was terrible. THE WORLD NEEDS A HERO wasn’t a lot better. And yet,

    Depending on your perspective, Anthrax is either having a career resurgence or floundering at the end of their career. I’m stunned how many people actually didn’t like their last effort, FOR ALL KINGS. In these ears, that was the best effort of their career. What made it great, to me, was the mixture of crushing heaviness combined with some

    When I first saw Sevendust’s new release was titled KILL THE FLAW, my initial thought was “what exactly is the flaw?” It leads you to wonder just what it is that caused this band to not break big, while bands with lesser quality catalogs like Disturbed or Korn had such crazy amounts of success at the same time. This

    They don’t do it that often anymore, but there’s always excitement when Iron Maiden comes out with new music. Knowing that they are closing in on the end of their career, you really do end up hoping that when they go out for good, it will be with a bang. I think it’s universally agreed upon that

    Probably more than any release in their history, Slayer came into releasing this album at a crossroads. This WAS the album that, in many ways, dictated if the band could continue on or if it was indeed time to drift off quietly to Hell. The loss of guitarist Jeff Hanneman and the removal of drummer Dave Lombardo had almost every Slayer

    Geoff Tate’s falling out and subsequent two years of lawsuits, multiple versions of the same band and overall craziness in the press definitely tarnished a legacy that once seemed untouchable. Think about it. Even with over a decade of arguably bad releases (Q2K, TRIBE, AMERICAN SOLDIER, DEDICATED TO CHAOS), it wasn’t until the now infamous spitting incident and the

    W.A.S.P. is one of those bands that has a ridiculously loyal fanbase...and good for them, actually. Doing THE CLASSIC METAL SHOW, we get shit on repeatedly anytime we say anything that is less than glowing about W.A.S.P., Blackie Lawless or any of the band’s former or present members. Oh well...comes with the territory, I guess. After what seems like quite a

Davey Suicide, Generation Fuck Star, Pitriff, Heavy Metal, News, reviews, interviewsHollywood, California - Standby Records is pleased to announce the much anticipated release of Davey Suicide's track and video for 'Generation Fuck Star' on iTunes and BlankTV Tuesday, May 1, 2012. The track, a symphony of post industrial metal rebellion, is energetic and explosive.

The video was directed by renowned photographer and filmmaker Chad Michael Ward, who's prior work has included Marilyn Manson, Fear Factory, and Combichrist. Frontman and the namesake for Davey Suicide, states "I feel like visually, this video is what the soundtrack of this generation should feel like." The video for 'Generation Fuck Star' combines alternative individuality and how we all must band together as one, no matter if you are drug addicts, street punks, or getting f*ed with—the video presents the sense of social isolation felt by many teens; rather than wallowing in self-pity, it empowers people. "I'm breaking free from all of the baggage that has plagued me for years and have become comfortable in my own skin."

In discussing the release of the track, Davey said, "Generation Fuck Star is about breaking the mold, doing what you want, how you want, and not because you are told to be a certain way. Fans can see through the cookie cutter bands, and that's why their love for those bands is fleeting. Give them music that means something, and they'll stand by your side, forever."
