A blog posted over at Invisible Oranges this week has us asking this question: Is it possible to love a band but hate their fans? Cosmo Lee wonders in the column if there's some sense of self-loathing involved in hating fans of a band you dig? The column recounts Lee's experience seeing a bunch of no-neck-having, Affliction-donning d-bags leaving a Lamb of God show – and shuddered at the thought that he might be just like the posers he was ridiculing. The column got us thinking about all the bands we used to love during the late 1990s (we don't care if that dates us), and how those bands' fan
Our fave Swedes, In Flames, are ready to lay waste to American venues this fall. They're hitting the road in support of their latest album, 'A Sense of Purpose,' which was their first effort for E1, after stints at Nuclear Blast and Ferret. This also marks the band's first headlining run since fall 2008, so it's about damn time
Between the Buried and Me frontman Tommy Rogers has a hard time describing what the band's Jamie King-produced follow-up to 2007's 'Colors' sounds like, and that's fair. But he takes a crack at it anyway.
"It's definitely a step forward for us, I think," he starts. "I don't kn
Man, did we have a busy weekend, as we're sure you did. On Saturday, we braved the L.I.E. traffic to head out to a poolside barbecue with the relatives. Luckily, this year, no one blacked out and fell in the pool. We
Some days, White Noise is something of a hodgepodge of metal news, covering acts from the 1980s through the 1990s and into this current decade. Other days, its sort of like an Ozzfest lineup; rife with big names everyone knows and/or heavy metal newcomers with really long, really confusing names. To
So, a stage prop breaks your nose and knocks you on your a-- on national television. What do you do? Try to glean as much press from the incident as you can, while people still care. That seems to be Poison frontman Bret Michaels' agenda this week. With talk of an off
Man, its looking like an Urfaust day. New York City is blanketed in a thick fog, and a hard rain's been pummeling the pavement all night long, with no signs it's going to let up anytime soon. Considering we're g
Vancouver metal mavens 3 Inches of Blood continue to defend the faith, waving the flag for old school metal, happily celebrating metal iconry like patches and logo buttons affixed to jean jackets, devil horns held high and tons of rip-roaring riffs. They supported the most recent leg of the Slipknot tour, which makes sense since drummer
We empathize with anyone who wouldn't want to visit Mexico right now. All this talk of swine flu's got us paranoid about even leaving the office, let alone hoping on a plane bound for Cancun. Seems we're not the only ones. It
