|NWOBHM legends RAVEN are that rare thing in music, true originals you can cut these guys with a razor and they will bleed true heavy metal – a more intense live band does not exist on this planet! Thus will be the case when RAVEN returns to the road in North America supporting their latest release ExtermiNation. The tour kicks off August 27th in Baltimore, MD and runs through September 9th in Vienna, VA. A complete list of dates can be found below.
ExtermiNation combines the melody/chaos/musicianship/lunacy that defines the band with songs that are simply the best they have done in decades. Rivaling the “holy trinity” of those early albums, and again working with the engineering metal mastermind who is Kevin 131 (Walk Through Fire) – the band have taken their game to the next level…this may well be their 41st anniversary but these guys are only just getting started!

We are now a little less than two months away from GWAR B-Q 2015. GWAR’s 30th birthday bash is shaping up to be the most insane party of the summer! VIP Tickets for the event are Almost Sold Out! There is still time Bohabs!So, what are you waiting for? Word in Antarctica is that Phil Anselmo, one of the only humans brutal enough to hang with GWAR, will be on hand for an exclusive celebrity signing for VIP ticket holders ONLY!! Phil will be joined by a lavish list of other artists appearing at the VIP Meet & Meat such as, Clutch, Cro-Mags, Ghoul, Goatwhore and many more. But that’s not all, in addition to the numerous other benefits, VIP‘s will also enjoy exclusive indoor bathrooms in which to void their hideous waste. Why poop with the plebes in the port-a-potties when you have the cash to assure your turds a place at the top of the pile? And if escaping the chemical toilets isn’t enough, VIP‘s will also have a refuge from the sun and chaos while enjoying the shade from their very own private VIP Pavilion!
Always one for charity, GWAR‘s manager, Sleazy P. Martini has further sweetened the pot by adding the Express Band; a special wristband that grants access to Express Lanes throughout the festival, providing shorter lines everywhere from the entrance gates to the merch booth, and lines for beer tickets and port-o-potties.
“That’s right Bohabs, now you you can experience for one day the awesomeness that is my entire life. You’re welcome.”
To make sure things run smoothly, numerous staff will be in place to monitor lines at all event booth locations including the entrance gate, merchandise, beer sales and port-o-potties. Express Bands are included in the VIP and Deluxe Ticket packages, and this is retroactive, so if you have already purchased a ticket package, you will still get your wristband at the festival. VIP ticket holders will already have all of their credentials prior to the event for the easiest of access. Deluxe ticket holders and Express Band purchasers will pick up their Express Bands at the gate through the express lane. VIP swag bag and Deluxe official GWAR B-Q event t-shirt will be picked up at the Merchandise booth. Express Bands can also be purchased à la carte online ($19) at http://gwarbq.com/buy-tickets or at the door on the day of the festival ($25). All sales are subject to availability. In order to keep lines short, a limited number of these express wristbands will be available, so get them while they’re hot! Don’t miss out on all of the killer benefits and new additions. Get your Express Wristband and Tickets HERE.
But despair not intrepid Bohab! Even if you can’t afford the upgrades, there are several changes this year that will ensure the event runs smooth as a porn star’s pussy. Lines will be more manageable thanks to the addition of Cash Lanes at all event booths, including entrance gates, merchandise and beer ticket sales. As in years past, it will be hot as fuck at the GWAR B-Q, and when it is hot as fuck people want to keep cool and stay hydrated. This year GWAR B-Q will be providing plenty of FREE GWATER for everyone in attendance. Of course, the main concern of most booze addled Bohabs is ready access to gallons and gallons of BEER! Thanks to our friends at Pabst Blue Ribbon and Loveland distributors there will be 3 Beer Trucks on site and 4 GWAR Beer Kiosks selling the cherished nector of the gods, Oderus Ale, brewed by Cigar City. So rest assured Bohabs…WE WILL NOT RUN OUT OF BEER! And finally, where oh where will you piss it all away? No less than 50 portable crappers at this years event are guaranteed to cut down the number of drunken idiots waiting cross-legged to empty their beer bloated bladders. All this is to say; GWAR-B-Q 2015 will be bigger, better and wetter than ever!
As an added bonus, we’ve created The Ultimate Bohab Guide to all things GWAR B-Q. This all-encompassing checklist and guide will ensure every Bohab’s maximum pleasure while attending the legendary GWAR B-Q. Answers to any and all of your questions can be found at gwarbq.com. All Habs should pay particular attention to the handy FAQ page at https://gwarbq.com/faq.

Ten Years of Pussy Out Now on SPV/Steamhammer
|Two weeks ago, southern hard rockers NASHVILLE PUSSY released Ten Years of Pussy, a retrospective of the bands ten years of working with SPV/Steamhammer. In support of the release NASHVILLE PUSSY are hitting the road on an extensive North American tour including appearances at the Ink-N-Iron Festival in Nashville, TN as well as the Full Terror Assault Festival in Cave In Rock, IL. The tour kicks off August 7th and will wrap up on September 13th in Memphis, TN. A complete list of dates can be found below. Expect additional dates to be added as well.
Ten Years Of Pussy highlights the band’s most relevant work of their decade history on label SPV. Up The Dosage (2014), featuring rock solid bassist Bonnie Buitrago, has been called “NASHVILLE PUSSY’S Back In Black” and was Pick Of The Week on That Metal Show. From Hell To Texas (2009) was recorded at Willie Nelson’s studio in Texas and featured some of the band’s strongest songwriting to date. And Get Some (2005), was the first SPV release and the first collaboration with Daniel Rey, and has more hooks than a hillbilly’s tackle box. And of course the bonus live CD includes the ultimate version of Nutbush City Limits with special guest Ron Heathman from The Supersuckers on guitar.
Ten Years of Pussy is available on iTunes and Amazon.

All of the members have already left their mark on the music scene with different groups before and we’re glad to be part of the AUDIOTOPSY story that will certainly follow suit! The debut record will be released later this year and leave no doubt that this is a highly creative and innovative group of musicians,” states Napalm Records Vice President Thomas Caser.
Extensive tour plans are in the works for what will undoubtedly be a very busy remaining 2015 and beyond in support of the new album. So expect much more news from these guys in the weeks and months ahead.
Matt prophetically adds: “Sometimes your world only changes once. Sometimes your world changes forever. Sometimes we get to change together. AUDIOTOPSY welcomes you, the change and the future. Thanks for joining us on our journey.”

Legendary front-man Mike Howe returns to Metal Church! In the summer of 2014 the band suddenly found themselves in need of a new singer. As fate would have it, Kurdt was already in talks with Mike for another project that he was working on with Saxon drummer Nigel Glockler, so he decided to ask Mike to rejoin Metal Church. Mike agreed, but true to form, didn’t want to make it official until he knew for sure that the integrity of the new material was there. In Mike’s own words, ” I didn’t want to come back to Metal Church just for nostalgia, it had to be for the right reasons, it had to be the best stuff we’ve ever written together or it just wouldn’t be worth it to anyone, especially the fans.” Soon after, Kurdt and Mike began exchanging ideas and writing new material with the band. The end result sounds like “Classic Mike Howe era Metal Church, it’s both heavy and melodic” says guitarist Kurdt Vanderhoof and further states “Mike sounds the same as he did 20 years ago, this is going to be truly epic!!” Drummer Jeff Plate comments, “Mike Howe is the ONLY singer for Metal Church. He has a reputation of complete honor and respect. We can now take Metal Church to the next level!”
Mike Howe originally joined Metal Church in the late 80’s and released 3 albums with the band: “The Human Factor”, “Blessing In Disguise” and “Hanging in the Balance”. Mike was also the face of popular music videos “Date With Poverty” and “Badlands” that aired during MTV’s heyday like”.
The band is currently in the process of working on their new album, which will be released later this year via Rat Pak Records. Metal Church is: Mike Howe (Vocals), Kurdt Vanderhoof (Guitars) Jeff Plate (Drums), Steve Unger (Bass) and Rick VanZandt (Guitars).
