Rammstein live in Athens 28-06-2010



Ο γράφων, γύρισα το πρωί απο Μαλακάσα (terravibe), όπου απόλαυσα μαζί με χιλιάδες συνοπαδούς, τη μεγαλειώδης πραγματικά συναυλία, του φαινομένου που ονομάζεται Rammstein.
Αυτά που είδαν τα ματάκια μας, μόνο απο τους ίδιους μπορούμε να ξαναδούμε-ξανακούσουμε-ξαναβιώσουμε. Απο κανέναν άλλον. Εδώ κυριολεκτώ και επιμένω.
Αν εξαιρέσουμε κάποια ψιλοπροβληματάκια (καθυστέρησαν να βγούν στη σκηνή), οι Γερμανοί παρέδωσαν μαθήματα επαγγελματισμού και μουσικής ιδιοφυίας.
Υπέροχοι.

Άξιοι αναφοράς το support group, οι Νορβηγοί Combichrist (oι οποίοι παρουσιάστηκαν παλαιότερα απο την στήλη), παίζοντας σφιχτοδεμένο industrial electro. Πολύ καλοί.

OZZY OSBOURNE: Speaks to Sky Sports About the World Cup

For all true football fans, in celebration of the World Cup 2010 kicking off this Friday, Sky Sports scored an interview with one Ozzy Osbourne this week. A little gem from that interview includes, Ozzy quipping: “The only World Cup I remember was in 1966.” Americans may not realize, but this is when England first won the World Cup

Further excerpts read as follows:

“The only World Cup I remember was in 1966 when England played West Germany in the final and Bobby Moore was the captain,” he said. “When it got to the last goal in extra-time it was brilliant.

“I was in my house with my parents where I grew up. We were watching on a black and white TV and you could hear a pin drop when the match was on because my father was well into it.

“I wasn’t into it so much, I was more into the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle back then. I’m not really a dedicated follower of soccer, but 1966 was very memorable to me. It was unbelievable.

“I was about 18 years old, but there weren’t any parties afterwards, we had no money for parties, a party was a black eye in them days.

“I had a girlfriend watching the football with me, I think. She was trying to talk to me and I was like, ’shut up!’”

You can read the rest of the interview with Ozzy Obsourne here.

Το TV WAR πηγαίνει Epica!


Αναδημοσιεύω το παρακάτω post, απο το site του metal hammer, γιατί νομίζω οτι αξίζει, για τους fans των Epica και όχι μόνο.

"Το TV WAR αυτή την Κυριακή τα μεσάνυχτα, πηγαίνει στο live των Epica και δίνει μια πληρέστατη συναυλιακή ανταπόκριση! Μιλά τόσο με την εκθαμβωτική frontwoman των Ολλανδών symphonic metallers, Simone Simons, όσο και με το support σχήμα, τους Έλληνες The Rain I Bleed, ενώ επίσης παρουσιάζει ζωντανό υλικό από την συναυλία και μιλά με το κοινό που παραβρέθηκε εκεί εκείνο το βράδυ! Κατά τα άλλα, όλες οι κλασικές ενότητες της εκπομπής είναι παρούσες και όλα τα «καυτά» νέα metal videoclips βάζουν φωτιά στις οθόνες! Συντονιστείτε στην συχνότητα του MAD TV ή δείτε το διαδικτυακά από

ΑΥΤΑ ΕΙΝΑΙ ΣΧΟΛΕΙΑ!!

According to SILive.com, the fifth-grade chorus of PS 22, a public school in New York City — who have been featured on VH1's nationally televised "VH1 Divas" and have performed at the White House — got one more feather in their caps last week as "Good Day NY" cameras dropped in on the Graniteville, Staten Island school to visit with students and musical director Gregg Breinberg.

Video footage of the students performing BLACK SABBATH's classic song "Iron Man" can be viewed below.

DISTURBED: New Song Preview Available


A teaser clip for "Another Way To Die", a brand new song from Chicago heavy rockers DISTURBED, can be viewed below. The track is the first single from the band's new album, "Asylum", which is due this fall via Reprise Records.

"Another Way To Die" will go for radio adds and be made available via iTunes on June 15.

"Asylum" is the follow-up to the band's 2008 platinum effort, "Indestructible", which spawned the Active Rock smash single "Inside the Fire".

As with "Indestructible", DISTURBED self-produced "Asylum", which the band began writing in September 2009 and recording in February of this year. Vocalist David Draiman describes it as "still identifiably DISTURBED, but showing more maturation. We feel this is one of the strongest bodies of work we've ever put together. It definitely goes in familiar areas, but with new levels of precision and skill."

Lyrically, Draiman says, the themes "range from very personal and introspective, to the political and provocative. What would you expect? No songs about puppy dogs or rainbows here."

"We want this record to be a shining example of how the years have made us stronger," Draiman says. "We want it to be an album that helps people get through their own trials and tribulations, as always."

DISTURBED will headline the first annual Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival in North America this summer. Other main-stage acts include AVENGED SEVENFOLD, STONE SOUR and HALESTORM. The potent rock lineup for the touring music and lifestyle jaunt also features performances from Jägermeister Second Stage headliners HELLYEAH, as well as AIRBOURNE, HAIL THE VILLAIN, NEW MEDICINE and the Jägermeister Battle of The Bands Winner in each city. The 36-date tour launches August 17 in Minneapolis, Minnesota and will visit arenas and amphitheatres across North America before wrapping October 4 in Madison, Wisconsin.
