Ex-Cobalt vocalist apologizes to LGBTQ community, covers “I Am Woman”

IMG_1065 (1)

Phil McSorley (ex COBALT vocalist) has apologized for harsh anti-gay comments. Phil has stated that being closeted and afraid to transition led to his “tough guy” approach. He is asking fans for forgiveness and re-instatement in the USBM friendship village. “I have begun hormone treatments and am asking that everyone take my cover of “I am Woman” by Helen Reddy in black metal style in the unorthodox yet earnest spirit that was intended.”

McSorley admitted that he was always more into the black than the metal in “black metal” and had been sorely dissapointed when he found out it was more about “nazi imagery”.

“Flipping burgers in Indiana has been my only gainful employment since being kicked out of the band, and now we have no customers,” McSorley admits.“I was just trying to fit in. But the charade is over and now I can come home.”

SEPTICFLESH are ready to ignite audiences worldwide with the premiere of their gruesome and vehement music video for “Prometheus,” taken from their critically acclaimed 2014 opus “Titan.” The band announced the debut as “the second video clip since our formation (the first being ‘The Eldest Cosmonaut” from the album “A Fallen Temple’). The storyline revolves around the theme of transformation and crossing the thin line between predator and prey. It is something that literally brings food for thought. Provoking, disturbing, resisting, surviving the ordeal…”

Directed and produced by Jon Simvonis (jonsimvonis.net) — who added “It’s been a pleasure working with the almighty SEPTICFLESH, visualizing a massive song from their latest album, an album which works on so many different levels. Bon Appetit!” – “Prometheus” is being served exclusively via Bloody-Disgusting.com as well as streaming directly via YouTube

Holopainen

Nightwish’s Tuomas wants you to smell like him:

“HOLOPAINEN PRESENTS “HOLOPAINEN”

Only a few days after the release of the new album “Endless Forms Most Beautiful”, Finland-based NIGHTWISH mastermind Tuomas Holopainen reveals a big surprise to the public: This May will see the launch of his first own fragrance, simply called “Holopainen” – an elegant, yet humble fragrance for the modern metalhead.

Says Tuomas: “This may come as a bit of a surprise to some fans, but creating my own fragrance has always been the logical next step for me. As a band, we had the Imaginaerum wine, but I wanted to create something more personal. Besides, many great artists have done it before, take Avril Lavigne for instance. I strongly believe in following your dreams and wishes. You only live once.”

The fragrance will first be sold exclusively though Nightwish-Shop, but a big Swedish clothing store chain has already expressed interest in international distribution.

“Holopainen” will be available in 50ml and 150ml bottles in various editions. In addition to the standard bottle with a black cap, there will be a web-exclusive limited edition with a fresh looking yellow cap – the perfect choice for spring time! Also, don’t miss the super exclusive fan edition (limited to 200 pieces) that comes in a beautiful wooden box and has a fabulous silver cap on the bottle, the only right choice for those special moments in life.

This guy did the ultimate RickRoll:

Slate Digital became Slate Analog:

Boz Labs took it upon themselves to model the one piece of rack gear that no one ever thought to do – the Rack Spacer. Available in 4 different musical styles.

Salvation Mods introduced their Black Mod guitar preamp module:

salvation black mod

“New! Salvation mods introduces
The groundbreaking BLACK MOD
The module that was designed to emulate the sound of the famous Metallica 1991 Black album.
the module does not offer the usual switching options and other controls.
All the important parameters are hardwired inside due to countless hours of engineering, use of separate tracks off the record, AB tests using tons of gear etc.
There is only one mighty control : the James/Kirk pot.
Fully counterclockwise there is the powerful and massive rhythm guitar sound of Mr. Hetfield.
Fully clockwise control activates the essential wah wah circuit for endless and fast licks – the signature Kirk Hammett tone!
The inbetween Noon setting offers both tones!!
Because the devil is in the details, the module has a black LED status indicator, that lights up with black light.”

Tool trolled hard:

Battlecross made us giggle with the greatest and oldest of jokes that never gets old – farts:

Did you notice that YouTube added a freakin Darude button that plays bits of Sandstorm? Bottom right corner bruh.

And of course, we never wavered in our mission to bring you all the most important updates on metal gear, only this time it was Metal Gear.
