    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

  • Slayer - REPENTLESS

    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

  • Operation: Mindcrime - THE KEY

    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

    With the release of THE STRANGE CASE OF…, I fell in love with Lzzy Hale. So much so, in fact, that I jokingly got down on one knee and asked her to marry me at Rock On The Range two years ago (a proposal that she didn’t flat out turn down, so maybe there’s still hope!!). Let’s be

Image: Little CaesarLITTLE CAESAR vocalist Ron Young recently provided BraveWords.com with an exclusive update, stating that the band's fifth full length album will be titled American Dream. There will 11 new tracks and they are working with Bruce Witkin, Ryan Dorn and Carlos 'Apple G' Orellana in a co-production effort with the band.

Young checked in again today (April 8th) with another exclusive round-up:

Day One: "We got some great drum sounds and 2 basic tracks cut last night... Hoping for a marathon productive day."

Day Two: "Got six more drum tracks laid down. Loving the drum sounds and Tom is smoking through them. We have three more to lay down and then we are on to bass overdubs. Tom is playing so hard he has a big contusion on his thigh from every time he hits his snare drum, he bashes his leg. Now that's rock n roll!

We love Unison studios. We feel so at home. Bruce Witkin is a great producer...really chill guy who gets great sounds really quick so we keep the energy level up and have fun tracking. There are dogs wandering around and friends and family dropping by....really relaxed atmosphere."

American Dream is scheduled to be released mid to late May and will be available on iTunes, with hard copies be available on LittleCaesar.net. The band will embark on a tour of Spain, Germany, Switzerland and Belgium in mid-June, confirmed dates can be found below: You can also stay in touch with them on Facebook.
