Limp Bizkit name New Album

Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst told Kerrang!:

“We thought we’d tell Kerrang! before everyone, I’m ready to make this post on Twitter but I figured I’d call you guys first.

“The name of the new Limp Bizkit album is Gold Cobra, we will slowly be revealing the meaning of the title over the next few weeks. Cobras are quite venomous. I wish it were a much longer, more ridiculous title, but Gold Cobra is as ridiculous as we’re going to get right now.”

Creed – Full Circle Review


Full Circle

After eight years Creed have returned with their fourth studio album Full Circle.

The album opens with Overcome, a fantastic opening which seems to be the complete opposite of their earlier work, with a set of more fast paced songs giving the album an enjoyable and unconventional (for Creed) opening which is maintained throughout the album.

Yet despite a great opening there is a section in the middle of the album that is just awful and brings down the album as a whole. Songs like Rain, Away In Silence and Good Fight are songs that just remind anyone who dislikes Creed, why they dislike Creed, as they are incredibly slow, boring and they don’t fit in with the album.

Overall the album is great for People who like Creed as it is something new but still maintains their old style, and for people who haven’t heard Creed this is a good buy as it is an album with a solid track listing with one or two songs that go against this.


Highlights: Overcome, Suddenly, Fear.

Legendary Black Metal Icon Sends A Message To Ronnie James Dio

Satyr, of legendary Black Metal band Satyricon sent a message of support to Dio, who recently was diagnosed with stomach cancer.

“I grew up as a huge Rainbow fan and records like ‘Rising’ were huge for me. We had heard a lot of speculation that things had turned for the worst for him but Satyricon and myself would like to wish him all of the best for getting through this and getting better in the future.”

This shows that Dio has inspired people from all over the world and in many different cultures.

Long Live Ronnie James Dio.

Tragic DIO News

Wendy Dio issued the following statement to Blabbermouth:

“Ronnie has been diagnosed with the early stages of stomach cancer. We are starting treatment immediately at the Mayo Clinic. After he kills this dragon, Ronnie will be back on stage, where he belongs, doing what he loves best, performing for his fans.

Long live rock and roll, long live Ronnie James Dio.

Thanks to all the friends and fans from all over the world that have sent well wishes. This has really helped to keep his spirit up.”

DistortedNews would like to wish Ronnie a speedy recovery.

Stone Sour To Begin New Album In January

Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor has told Noisecreep that the band will take to the studio in January “for two or three months” to begin their next album:

“We’ve already got ten tunes fully written and another 15 we’re kind of working on here and there. When I’m not on the road I’m still working, I never stop. And it’s really good, everything we’re doing is really, really good.”

“I can say the material is darker than ‘Come Whatever May,’ but a lot more melodic, a lot stronger, a lot more mature, and the lyrics that are coming out of me are really good,” he says. “I’m really excited.”

When asked about how he chooses which songs for which band (he also fronts Iowan nine piece Slipknot) he replied:

“I just kind of go by my gut. A lot of times people ask me and this is a perfect example, why I brought ‘Snuff’ to the table for Slipknot. They’re like, ‘That’s so obviously a Stone Sour song.’ I was like, ‘How do you know? I wrote the song. How would you like to tell me what my song should go with?”

Sounding good, if they can make a better album than the fantastic Come What(Ever) May, then I’ll be extremely impressed.

Trivium God Of War Song Details

Matt Heafy recently spoke with Metal Hammer about the bands forthcoming song which will be included in a free EP with God Of war 3:

“Right now we’re on the second leg of Into The Mouth Of Hell We Tour. The whole of the first leg I was writing and demoing every day so were Corey and Paolo, on this leg we haven’t been doing that as much because we’ve been working on the ‘God Of War III’ song – which is ‘Shattering The Skies Above’. That will come out exclusively on ‘God Of War III’, it will not be on the next Trivium record, but it is going to give people a really good representation of where we’re going with the next record. I’m pretty sure we’ll be playing it in the UK when we’re over, so people will be able to hear where we’re going. That’ll be the only new thing.”

Sounding good!
