Adult Swim has made every episode of Metalocalypse available to stream for free! All four seasons, plus the Klok Opera movie, can now be viewed ad nauseam on the official Adult Swim website.

Creator Brendon Small achieved gigantic success with the fictional death metal band Dethklok, with all three Dethalbum records outselling the last. Since the final special’s airing in 2013, fans have clamored for the return of Metalocalypse, but unfortunately, Adult Swim wasn’t interested in giving the series a final bow.

“There was no debate, there wasn’t even a returned phone call. It was a hard ‘no.’ It was about as hard of a ‘no’ as you could possibly get … It’s basically like a crappy relationship at the end where we should probably break up, but they kept on dangling the idea of doing this thing in front of me and then dangling other TV show ideas and stuff like that.”.

“What I think really happened was [‘Metalocalypse Now’ campaigners] drove Adult Swim insane. I think Adult Swim, for some reason, took it very personally. The truth was that people were saying, ‘Hey, what the hell? Where’s our show? We’re here for this show, can you give it to us? We’re gonna watch it like crazy,’ and [Adult Swim] said no. I think somebody’s thin-skinned and somebody got their feelings hurt.”

QUEEN guitarist Brian May has urged the public to take seriously the threat of coronavirus and change behaviors to slow its spread.

On Monday (March 16), May took to his Instagram to share a Medium.com article warning about the risk of inaction in response to the pandemic, and he included the following message:

“I feel this might be THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I EVER POSTED.

“There is so much false information out there – people saying the CoronaVirus is not a threat – even that it doesn’t exist. And our own Government has failed to act promptly, acting on catastrophically bad advice, which will eventually be the cause of thousands of deaths.

“It’s too late to contain the CoronaVirus in Britain – but we CAN still save some of the lives of our dear ones by doing NOW what we should have done 3 weeks ago.

“ISOLATE – minimise our social contacts. Minimise them, if possible, to almost zero. The more interactions you have, the more chance you have of bringing the virus in to threaten your family. The less people you meet up with, the better the chance of saving yourself and your family, and the greater chance we will have to limit the damage this awful plague will do.

“PLEASE READ the article these screen shots come from. It will take you 30 minutes or so to absorb it – but at the end you will truly understand why we must take extreme measures NOW. Do not confuse this with panicking. It is simply taking the measures we need to adopt to protect ourselves from a Hellish future.

“THE LINK IS IN MY BIO. Do it, please – and forward it to all your friends and family. This could save countless lives.

“My God – I am praying that [U.K. Prime Minister] Boris[Johnson] will read it – and throw his advisors out the door. Extreme Action is needed – delaying is shite. And please, politicians, stop talking about the economy, just for a moment. A million lives are at stake. Bri

There is no known cure yet for the flu-like virus, which originated in China.

Officials have made it clear that the elderly — especially those with heart, lung and immunological conditions — are particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus, with at least 25 deaths linked to one nursing home in Washington.

In Italy, which has one of the oldest populations in the world, one hundred percent of the people who have died have been over 60, and the vast majority over 80.

According to the Centers For Disease Control And Protection (CDC), coronavirus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person — between people who are in close contact with one another (within about six feet), and through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

QUEEN’s BRIAN MAY: ‘Why We Must Take Extreme Measures Now’ To Slow Coronavirus


2017’s Thor: Ragnarok was one of Marvel’s best movies to date. I think so, the critics think so, heck, Quentin Tarantino thinks so. So everyone who cares about these kinda things is very excited that Ragnarok writer/director Taika Waititi — fresh off his Oscar win for Jojo Rabbit — is returning for the fourth Thor movie, which will be called Thor: Love and Thunder.

That title is already pretty metal (I can’t hear/read it without thinking of Mastodon’s “Blood and Thunder“), and Waititi made excellent use of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” in Ragnarok.

And it sounds like Waititi won’t be shying away from Thor’s metalocity in this new flick: “The movie Thor 4, they’re using ‘Rainbow in the Dark’ in that movie,” Wendy Dio recently told Australia’s Subculture Media. Whether or not it will play as prominent a role in Love and Thunder as Led Zep did in Ragnarokobviously remains to be seen, but it’s not hard to envision the title character and his allies kickin’ ass and takin’ names to the Dio classic.

 will say it’s kinda B.S. that we’re four movies deep into the Thor franchise (not counting his appearances in the various Avengers films) and they still haven’t employed any viking metal, but hey, Disney owns the property, that there’s gonna be any metal in it is a minor miracle.

You can listen to the entire Wendy Dio — in which she also reveals RDJ’s connection to the new season of Stranger Things — below. Thor: Love and Thunder is scheduled for release on November 5, 2021.

Welcome to our “Psychedelic Lunch” series where we find out how deep the rabbit hole really goes and explore psychedelic tunes from the 60’s to today. Weekdays At Noon EST. Enjoy the trip!

Pink Floyd, Interstellar Overdrive Album: The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn (1967)

  • This song is a prime example of Pink Floyd’s early Syd Barrett-driven days, when they created mostly psychedelic rock. It features long, discordant chords on Barrett’s guitar, constantly changing tempos, shifting rhythms, and few, or in this case, no lyrics at all.
  • Piper At The Gates Of Dawn was digitally remastered and released in 2007 in two editions: A 2-CD set with stereo and mono versions, and a version that also contains a book and a CD with all of Pink Floyd’s 1967 singles, along with some alternate mixes and limited release versions.
  • The main riff throughout the tune was adapted from the guitar riff from Love’s remake of “My Little Red Book.”
  • This was used in the 2016 movie Doctor Strange in a scene where the title character is driving on winding roads.

Ozzy Osbourne’s new video for the song “Ordinary Man” was released today and it does not disappoint!

It features legendary pianist Sir Elton John, Guns N’ Roses duo Slash and Duff McKagan and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith.

Ozzy says of the new track, “It all just came together. Slash is a dear friend of mine, as is Elton. When I was writing ‘Ordinary Man,’ it reminded me of an old Elton song and I said to Sharon, ‘I wonder if he would sing on it?’ We asked and lo and behold, he agreed and sings and play piano on the song.”

It takes us on a reflective journey through a collage of photo’s and film footage of Ozzy, band mates, friends and family through the years. Theres video of Randy Rhodes, Zakk Wylde and members of Black Sabbath.

We see clips and photo’s of Ozzy and company while on tour and all the crazy antics.

The video shows Osbourne in his hometown, Birmingham, England, watching a home movie of his life. We see clips from his childhood, the early days of Black Sabbath, his solo career, and his life with his family.

The video also includes the less-than-stellar moments, such as his 1984 mugshot when he was arrested for public intoxication. Its a poignant and candid journey revealing moments of his private life and we are invited in to catch a rare glimpse.

The song and video are the stuff if legends and the staff at Vinyl Lair are blown away by this work of art.

Here’s the lyrics for the song below:

I was unprepared for fame
Then everybody knew my name
No more lonely nights it’s all for you
I have traveled many miles
I’ve seen tears and I’ve seen smiles
Just remember that it’s all for you

Don’t forget me as the colors fade
When the lights go down it’s just an empty stage
Ok
Yes I’ve been a bad guy
Been higher than the blue sky
And the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man
I made momma cry
Don’t know why I’m still alive
Yes the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man

Many times I lost control
They tried to kill my rock n roll
Just remember I’m still here for you

I don’t wanna say goodbye
When I do you’ll be alright
After all I did it all for you

Don’t forget me as the colors fade
When the lights go down it’s just an empty stage
Ok
Yes I’ve been a bad guy
Been higher than the blue sky
And the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man
I made momma cry
Don’t know why I’m still alive
Yes the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man

Yes I’ve been a bad guy
Been higher than the blue sky
And the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man
I made momma cry
Don’t know why I’m still alive
Yes the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man

The Official Video For Ordinary Man Does Not Disappoint!

Polish death metal metallers VADER will release their 16th studio album, “Solitude In Madness”, on May 1 via Nuclear Blast.

VADER leader Piotr “Peter” Wiwczarek comments: “Humanity never learns from its lessons. I feel tensions continuing to rise around the world. People have forgotten about true pain, from a bigger picture standpoint. Generationally, the new generation doesn’t respect the old, and I’d challenge they don’t even respect themselves. Our everyday lives are on TV, so there’s no soul left. Everything’s empty. I think technology is also sucking the human out of us. There are more lonely people now than ever before, and yet we’re supposed to be connected together by technology. It’s madness! That’s where the title, ‘Solitude In Madness’, came from, actually. Of course, I approach these topics in a very VADER way. I love telling stories and expressing myself through those stories.”

For “Solitude In Madness”VADER went outside its comfort zone to Grindstone Studios in Suffolk, England, where the band teamed up with one-stop shop Scott Atkins to engineer, produce, mix, and master for four weeks in summer 2019. The album artwork was created by Wes Benscoter (AUTOPSYCATTLE DECAPITATION).

“Solitude In Madness” track listing:

01. Shock And Awe 
02. Into Oblivion 
03. Despair 
04. Incineration Of The Gods 
05. Sanctification Denied 
06. And Satan Wept 
07. Emptiness 
08. Final Declaration 
09. Dancing In The Slaughterhouse 
10. Stigma Of Divinity 
11. Bones

As first impression of the upcoming album, VADER have already released a very first single and lyric video for the track “Shock And Awe”.

VADER‘s European tour will kick off on March 7 in Germany. The trek will hit Germany, U.K., Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy, Austria and Hungary with support from DEFILED, CHRONOSPHERE and FALLCIE.

VADER To Release ‘Solitude In Madness’ Album In May

Dee Snider says that AC/DC‘s upcoming album will feature “some surprises” related to late rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young that will blow the minds of the band’s diehard fans.

The TWISTED SISTER singer discussed AC/DC‘s plans for the new disc during an appearance last Thursday (February 20) on SiriusXM‘s “Trunk Nation” show to promote a Change.org petition to get the legendary Australian hard rock act to perform at next year’s Super Bowl.

Snider said: “I had dinner with [AC/DC singer] Brian[Johnson] recently, and we talked about [the band’s return to activity]. He told me a lot of stuff, and a lot of stuff that I don’t wanna say. But we know from the photos, and Brian confirmed it, they’ve been in the studio, they’ve been recording. The original — I don’t say the ‘original’ guys, because a lot of ’em are gone, but I say the ‘classic’ lineup is back together and there are some surprises, which I can’t talk about, regarding Malcolm Young that just had my jaw on the floor. I will say he will be present. So this is AC/DC as we know and love them.”

Last December, Snider confirmed that Johnson was doing “good,” four years after the the AC/DC frontman was forced to leave the band mid-tour due to a dangerous level of hearing loss. He was eventually replaced on the road by GUNS N’ ROSES vocalist Axl Rose.

Snider was responding to Twitter questions regarding his earlier comment that the surviving members of AC/DC were working on a new studio album which will reportedly be dedicated to Malcolm Young.

Snider‘s latest comments seem to corroborate a September 2018 report from JAM! magazine, which cited a “reliable source inside the AC/DC camp” as indicating that the band was recording a new LP which will utilize previously unreleased guitar tracks from Malcolm Youngon all the songs.

The magazine’s web site reported at the time: ‘Five years prior to the (2008) ‘Black Ice’ LP, AC/DC‘s 15th studio release, Angus and Malcolm Young . . . literally wrote hundreds of songs, many were recorded and have been stashed away until now. Angus has decided to selected [sic] the best tracks from those recordings that Malcolmplayed on and is now back in the studio recording and mixing them with fellow bandmates Phil Rudd [drums], Cliff Williams [bass] and, yes, Brian Johnson on vocals.”

A year and a half ago, Johnson and Rudd, along with guitarists Angus Young and Stevie Young, were photographed outside Vancouver’s Warehouse Studios. Based on the pictures, the assumption was that AC/DCwas in the midst of making — or at least planning — another album, with Rudd and Johnson both back in the lineup.

Ever since AC/DC completed the tour cycle for its 2014 album “Rock Or Bust” three and a half years ago — a turbulent trek that weathered the forced retirement and eventual death of co-founder Malcolm Young, plus the departures of JohnsonRudd and Williams — fans have wondered whether sole remaining founding member Angus Young would keep the band going or decide it was time for AC/DC to pack it in.

In February 2019, a photo surfaced on social media suggesting that Williams has also returned to AC/DCand will appear on the rumored comeback album which is expected to be released in the coming months.
