  • New Movie from Tom Morello, ‘Metal Lords’, Coming to Netflix

    Weeks after Dave Grohl released a thrash banger for his ‘Studio 666’ horror movie, Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello has tried his hand at the genre with the original song Machinery of Torment for his upcoming Netflix original movie ‘Metal Lords’.
    The song was written by Tom, who serves as the movie’s executive music producer, and performed by the fictional band Skullflower from the movie.
    Morello describes the movie as a story of kids trying to get their first band together and having a dream, but perhaps not having the technical ability or the artistic vision to make that dream real. ‘Metal Lords’ hits Netflix April 8th.


  • Robb Flynn Joins Exodus on Stage

    Videos surfaced online last week of a show in West Oakland, California, where Exodus were joined on stage by former guitarist Rick Hunolt, alongside Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn for a handful of tunes.
    Meanwhile, former Exodus Frontman Steve “Zetro” Souza recounted the worst show he ever played with the band for the ‘Put Up Your Dukes’ podcast with another ex-Exodus vocalist Rob Dukes. “I remember we were on the ‘Headbangers Ball’ tour and we were in New Orleans and they’ve got drink places right on the street,” said Souza. “I’m all, ‘What do you got that kind of tastes like a Slurpee?’ They’re all, ‘I have a Hurricane.’ I [had] five of them. I went on stage, and I couldn’t even remember the words and I was spinning. it was just awful. Gary was none too happy with me.”
