Check out the rest of jbetcom’s gif’s, many that aren’t metal, but are just as fun none-the-less.  The Cannibal Corpse and Metallica are keeping me entertained entirely.



There has been a new wave of traditional heavy metal bands coming up as of late that have a strong work ethic, killer riffs from guitarists Chris Segger and Tim Brown, and the soaring vocals of Dan Cleary. These bands are providing a fresh take on the genre and adding a much needed breath of fresh air to the genre. Among the leaders of this renewed movement is Canada’s Striker. The five-piece band resurfaces with their third album for Napalm Records and first new recording in two years.



Judas Priest have added a the lucky number of 13 new dates to their Redeemer of Souls tour.  Dates below.



Tons of new releases this week including Goatwhore, Ministry, Wolves in the Throne Room, and much, much more.



Judas Priest have announced US tour dates in support of their new album, Redeemer of Souls.  Steel Panther is slated to open.  Dates below.


It’s been a hectic week and to calm things down I need some Priest. No, not the upcoming album, but something classic. So today, We’re going back to 1983 with some Judas Priest. This is from 1983 on the Screaming for Vengeance tour. Horns up!


Judas Priest have released another track from their upcoming album, Redeemer of Souls, which will be released July 8th. Dragonaut is by far the best of the songs they have released so far, which gives me hope for the new album. The previous tracks have left me with a “meh” kind of feeling.  What are your thoughts.


Loudwire has returned with it’s latest installment in the Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction series. This episode focuses on heavy metal legends Judas Priest. Rob Halford, Glen Tipton and Richie Faulkner hang with Graham Hartman to reveal fact or fiction. Enjoy


I’ve gotta say, I’m not that impressed with the first track from the new Judas Priest, March of the Damned. The lyrics are fairly juvenile, Rob’s vocal’s lack urgency, and the whole thing sounds overly simplistic. I expected much more from the Priest. Maybe KK Downing had more to do with the songwriting than previously thought. Your thoughts?


Sony is streaming the new Judas Priest track Redeemer of Souls, the first track from the band that doesn’t feature KK Downing. The Album comes out July 15th in hte US on Epic and July 14th in the UK on Columbia Records. Leave your thoughts in the comments section.
