Today sees the release of Studio 666, a horror comedy starring Foo Fighters, and Dave Grohl is using the movie as an excuse to dip his toes back into the heavy metal blood pool. In the movie Dave is possessed by a demon who once caused the lead singer of fictional band Dream Widow to kill his band and himself.
Last week Grohl dropped a track titled March of the Insane, which is supposed to be a track from Dream Widow’s lost album, and then revealed we can look forward to the entire thing being released today as well! “Some of it sounds like Trouble; some of it sounds like Corrosion of Conformity; some of it has a Kyuss vibe,” said Grohl.
Drummer for Obituary, Donald Tardy, revealed in an interview that the band’s new album is done and ready to go.
Also, Ice T tweeted that sessions for the next Body Count album Merciless are underway saying, “ only one goal… it’s gotta be HARDER than the last.”

Meanwhile, Dirtbagger Vance of Sabaton related in a recent interview a cool story about late-Motörhead frontman Lemmy Killmister.
“He was coming up and about to order a drink. So I ordered him a double from the other bar, and when he got it, the bartender sort of showed [to Lemmy], ‘It’s from him.’ So he came up and we talked for a while. And he taught me a lesson about being an artist. I was telling him, ‘You don’t have to stand here and hang out with me all the time.’ And he was, like, ‘I think it’s a nice thing. You bought me a nice whisky. And I’m having a good time.’ Vance finished the story asking Lemmy what he’d have done if Vance was an a-hole to which Lemmy replied, “I can drink whisky really fast.”
Ex-Lamb of God and Megadeth drummer Chris Adler talked on all sorts of topics during a recent YouTube interview, including his top three metal albums of all-time. His picks included, Meshuggah‘s Destroy Erase Improve, Queensrÿche‘s Operation: Mindcrime and the Megadeth classic Peace Sells…But Who’s Buying?
“I think, for a long time, I would’ve told you it was the Bible of everything metal.” Adler said about peace sells. While calling Destroy Erase Improve a game-changing album for the genre and praising the songwriting and production of Operation: Mindcrime.
