4) You Aren’t Selling Advance Tickets
5) You Think The Venue Will Promote
6) You Rely Solely On Facebook
7) You Aren’t Going Out Into The World

http://www.digitalmusicnews.com/permalink/2014/01/23/7-reasons-empty-shows

5* John Corabi formerly of Motley Crue and Mick Mars from Motley Crue may be teaming up after Motley “retires:” http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/ex-motley-crue-singer-john-corabi-in-discussions-with-mick-mars-about-writing-new-music-playing-shows/

6* Flotsam and Jetsam are preparing to record a new album! Micheal Spencer, the bass player, is quoted as saying: “There’s a great, old-school thrash vibe going on with the direction of the songs and what originally influenced the band, mixed with a little of what we like about today’s sound, in metal.” http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/flotsam-and-jetsam-prepares-to-record-new-album-hit-the-road/

7* Sepultura announce 30th Anniversary tour of North America with Germany’s DESTRUCTION as tour support! http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/sepultura-to-celebrate-30th-anniversary-with-north-american-tour-destruction-to-support/

02. Heading Out To The Highway (JUDAS PRIEST)

I’ve heard their cover of “The Dark” from Metal Church that they did for the soundtrack for the film ‘Fear Clinic’ and I have to admit, while it’s awesome that they covered it, I didn’t care for Corey’s vocals on it. Hopefully the new covers will be better.

FINAL SONG
Artist: Neurosis
Album: Through Silver in Blood
Song: Locust Star
Notes:

Neurosis is a post-metal band, based out of Oakland, California. They formed in 1985 as a hardcore punk band, and their sound progressed towards a doom metal style that also included influences from dark ambient and industrial music as well as incorporating elements of folk music. Terrorizer Magazine described Neurosis as “arguably the most influential band of the past two decades.” Through Silver in Blood is the band’s 5th studio album. Enjoy!
