Austin, Texas is the place to be this weekend. With headliners like Refused and Turbonegro on the Black Stage, this could have been my ultimate concert to attend, but sadly I didn’t make the journey down to TX. Fun Fun Fun Fest is going on and they made a huge mistake yesterday by having a 3-way dilemma for attendees. Refused were on at the same time as both A$AP Rocky and Girl Talk. That’s just mean. I would have been right up front for Refused though too, just like the kind soul who shot the below footage of the Swedes performing the classic “Rather Be Dead”.

Deftones are a few weeks away from releasing Koi No Yokan and this recently released single is a great sign of what to expect. I love when Chino and the boys do something a little more mellow, but manage to sneak in a scream or two. “Tempest” has all the elements of a great Deftones track. Enjoy the new album now, but buy it on November 13th.
We’re just two weeks away from the release of Manticore and Cradle Of Filth unleashed some visuals for another track off their new album. “Frost On Her Pillow” is my favorite of the leaked tracks so far. Dani has his new face paint, plenty of fire, a beautiful babe, and a plethora of evil imagery. Enjoy metalheads.
The Helsinki Vampires released their new album last week and I am finally getting around to checking it out. It’s the usual sound you’ve come to expect from The 69 Eyes, but unlike their last album, it’s good all the way thru. The monotone goth sound isn’t for everyone, but I’m a fan of these Finnish rockers. Check out X if you’re into haunting love songs with heavy guitars. Check out the first single “Red” below if you’re on the fence.
Cradle Of Filth unveiled the title track from their upcoming album the other day. It’s brutal, as expected. I’m hearing a lot of talk about Cradle returning to their old sound, but to me, they’ve never changed. It’s always intense metal with the unique range of vocals from Dani Filth. Manticore And Other Horrors is out on October 30th. Just in time for Hallow’s Eve.
Deftones are back for another album, coming out on November 13th, and are giving away a free download of the lead single “Leathers”. Stream the new combustion of greatness below and follow the link to get a free download from the band. I hope Crosses reappear, but always great to hear Chino screaming his head off in his original outlet. This is just as great as you would want from a new Deftones track to excite you about Koi No Yokan.
Cradle Of Filth return to their gnarliest form with a new track “For Your Vulgar Delectation”. It’s complete mayhem and not for the faint of heart. Cradle have a new album The Manticore And Other Horrors coming out on October 29th. A North American tour is likely to follow, which is always a great night at the Trocadero. Took me a few days to find a download for this one. Sorry 4 The Wait. MP3 download in the Cloud.
