Of the track in question, Miller says, “Hey Yeah” is a tune that I first heard on a Jimmie Vaughan album, Strange Pleasure. Jimmie is one of my favorite guitar players of all time. I love Stevie Ray Vaughan, of course, but I love Jimmie more. He’s deeper, he’s simpler. He says more with just a handful of notes.”

Album Streaming On AOL Music & CBS Radio’s “The Street Date”
Glenn Danzig today unleashes his first new Danzig studio album in six years, Deth Red Sabaoth, on Evilive/The End Records. The album is currently streaming on AOL Music’s Full CD Listening Party as well as on CBS Radio’s “The Street Date”, which also features an in-depth video interview with Glenn. You can purchase Deth Red Saboth physically on Amazon and digitally on Amazon MP3.
CBS Radio’s “The Street Date”: www.thestreetdate.com/danzig-deth-red-sabaothThe 11-track collection, produced, recorded and penned by Danzig, is laced with Glenn’s lycanthropic growls and blues-infected wailing. Tracks including “Black Candy,” “The Revengeful,” and the first single, “On A Wicked Night,” emit a spectral glow to rival the highest points in Danzig’s colossal discography. Part 1 of the exquisite two-part “Pyre of Souls” opens with acoustic guitar, haunting piano, Glenn’s plainsong vocal, and an almost dirge-like feel; Part II explodes with electric guitars and a driving, mesmerizing cadence.
As is with all of Danzig’s releases, the CD cover artwork for Deth Red Sabaoth is provocative and ominous. The cover is an original piece created specifically for the CD by the award-winning artist Joe Chiodo whose work has graced not only Danzig’s Verotik publishing line, but the covers of numerous graphic novels and comic books, including “X-Men Unlimited.” Deth Red Sabaoth isn’t the first time one of Chiodo’s paintings has been part of a Danzig package – one of his erotic “good girl” pinups was part of 2007’s The Lost Tracks of Danzig.
Deth Red Sabaoth marks Danzig’s ninth studio venture that began back in 1988 with the Rick Rubin-produced, Platinum-certified, Danzig. A live version of his oedipal projectile “Mother,” was a major hit, and added to his iconic status that began a decade earlier when he founded the near-mythic punk band Misfits and then Samhain. Sales of ten-million albums later and having been dubbed “goth-punk’s godfather” by SPIN, Glenn Danzig is arguably the most versatile talent to emerge from hardcore’s first wave, and truly is a renaissance man – a graphic designer, photographer, comic book publisher and composer. His venture into composing and recording classical music yielded Black Aria, that debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Classical charts, and Black Aria II, that had Glenn sharing the Billboard/Classical’s Top Ten with Itzhak Perlman and Andrea Bocelli. His indelible stamp is on artists like Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails, and he has written songs that have been sung by a diverse array of artists, from Metallica to Johnny Cash.
Danzig – Glenn, guitarist Tommy Victor, drummer Johnny Kelly and bassist Steve Zing – also a founding member of Samhain with Glenn – are currently on a special 9-city tour to support Deth Red Sabaoth; with all current dates listed below.

For a limited time, Murderdolls are offering a free download of “My Dark Place Alone” — the lead single off their upcoming album Women and Children Last. Head to roadrunnerrecords.com to get it now!
Just when you thought all the fun was gone from rock music, you thought wrong, because the inimitable Murderdolls are back, emerging from a dormant period with their middle fingers to the sky, tongues planted firmly in their cheeks and ready to call out those that haunt today’s predictable musical landscape. Their first album in eight years, entitled Women and Children Last, is set for release August 31st through Roadrunner Records.
Murderdolls are the Frankenstein brainchild of Joey Jordison and partner-in-grime, Wednesday 13. The band sees Joey step away from his day job and masked role behind the kit in Slipknot to playing a low-slung lead guitar, while Wednesday serves as the frontman in their macabre rock ‘n’ roll circus. The duo are ready to breathe new life into the project with a brand new line-up, while their ‘fuck you’ attitude, devilish glamour and trademark black sense of humor remain firmly in tact. Joey and Wednesday are excited to bring back their revamped musical monster, exclaiming, “We don’t look at this as a return…this is REVENGE! The music scene today is as boring and stale as it was in 2002, when we first formed the band. This time around, everyone is the enemy!”
Comments Joey, “We’ve waited eight years to make sure, but this is the perfect time to bring Murderdolls back to the world. We’ve got nothing to lose and nothing to prove. So raise your fist along with us motherfuckers and sorry if you get a bloody nose along the way. It’s about to get ugly! Women and Children Last!!!”
Trixter was the second band on the stage at M3, and I must admit I wasn’t very excited about seeing them play. I have seen them perform a few times in the nineties, and thought they were o.k. at best. I missed the beginning of their set, as I was in the VIP tent with Jetboy. I did make in for the second or third song of Trixter’s set.
I thought Trixter was better than I remembered them to be. Not perfect, but a fun band, and they certainly did their part to get the crowd revved up.
Last night, on my long trek home from M3 from Baltimore, I was listening to the Eddie Trunk show on The Boneyard on XM Radio. Eddie called Trixter a party band like Van Halen. I nearly wrecked my car. Did he hear the same show I did? Clearly Trixter, is nothing like Van Halen. The band did do a pretty fun set, but comparing the band to Van Halen is sacrilege.
You can view one of the clips and some pictures of the show below.
This is Five Finger Death Punch’s video for “Bad Company,” off the album, War Is The Answer.
The video features footage from 5FDP’s recent trip to Iraq for the troops, and is a salute to the brave men and women who dedicate their
lives to protecting our freedom.
This is 5FDP’s brilliant take on the classic self-titled song from the legendary rock band, Bad Company.

Back in the 80s they surely belonged to one of the most influential and also experimental bands of their genre. Let us be honest – Who does not remember a gem like 1986‘s “The Force”! After a long break of 13 years, ONSLAUGHT returned in 2005, due to the great demand of the fans and critics all over the world, with yet another stunning release entitled “Killing Peace” (2007). Now the time has come to give you thrash fans out there, what you have been waiting for. The band is recording a new record as we speak and it will see the light of day soon! This being said there is nothing more than to give this band a warm welcome here at AFM!
The band about the signing: ” WE’RE SO VERY STOKED TO BE JOINING THE ‘AFM RECORDS’ ROSTER, OUR DEAL WITH ‘CANDLELIGHT’ HAD EXPIRED AND AS ALWAYS ONSLAUGHT WERE LOOKING FOR A NEW CHALLENGE. THERE WERE SEVERAL LABELS INTERESTED IN SIGNING THE BAND, BUT ‘AFM’ SAID ALL THE RIGHT THINGS AND MADE ALL THE RIGHT MOVES SO IT WASN’T A HARD CHOICE. ALSO SEEING WHAT THE LABEL DID WITH THE LATEST ‘FEAR FACTORY’ ALBUM BACKED UP OUR DECISION. IT KINDA FEELS LIKE WHEN WE WERE SIGNED TO ‘MUSIC FOR NATIONS’ VERY PERSONAL AND VERY FRIENDLY ON EVERY LEVEL RIGHT UP TO THE LABEL OWNER… WE HAVE A REAL GOOD FEELING ABOUT THE NEW ALBUM RELEASE AND A VERY DISTINCTIVE VISION, AFM ARE RIGHT BEHIND THIS 110%, WE’RE GONNA MAKE A GREAT TEAM AND TOGETHER WE’RE GONNA DELIVER SOME KICK ASS NEW TUNES….”
