    “Bang that head that doesn’t bang.” – R. Burch ‘83 Thus reads the quote on the back sleeve of Metallica’s debut album Kill ‘Em All, which was released on July 25th, 1983. It stands as one of the earliest documents of thrash metal, a pivotal album that explored artistic extremes and set the foundational archetypes of thrash as a sound, image, and lifestyle. At a time in heavy music when record labels were starting to embrace super-produced glam-metal bands that would go on to dominate radio and MTV for the remainder of the decade, Metallica literally said: “Metal up your...

    The American rock band Metallica has surprised fans in Moscow by performing a song in the Russian capital by the late Soviet-era rock star Viktor Tsoi. In the middle of the concert at Moscow's Luzhniki Sports Stadium on July 21, the group's bassist Robert Trujillo and lead guitarist Kirk Hammett suddenly started performing one of Tsoi's most popular songs -- Gruppa Krovi (Blood Type). They sang the song in the Russian language. The group's fans started singing the song together with Metallica. Tsoi and his group, Kino, were extremely popular in the Soviet Union during the late 1980s. His songs...

    Nick Sandmann was brutally maligned by the media for doing absolutely nothing wrong and the same gutless and stupid media fawned over the Vietnam fraud and liar Nathan Phillips. Sandmann and his family have received death threats. The kid was brave enough to subject himself to an interview by that blithering idiot Savannah Guthrie who then did her best to make Sandmann look and feel guilty. https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec/status/1087874952911572992Enough of that. Sandmann and his family have hired an attorney. And not just any attorney. Famed libel attorney Lin Wood announced Thursday that he would be representing Nick Sandmann, the Covington Catholic High...

    An event hosted by METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich at the University of California-Berkeley earlier this month was interrupted by liberal students who stormed the stage in protest of subpar conditions endured by contract workers on campus. One student allegedly assaulted Salesforce.com founder Marc Benioff during the incident. Benioff was on campus on March 2 to participate in the public forum intended to explore the creative culture of the Bay Area through conversations with other leading cultural figures from the community, including Ulrich and the drummer's father, Torben Ulrich, who at 87 is still active in music, film and poetry.

    Clash Daily ^ | 6/9/14 | Doug Giles
    The anti-hunting dolts have gone into full doofus mode attacking James Hetfield of Metallica for hunting and narrating a bear hunting doc for The History Channel. I believe ClashDaily.com started the party by being happy that Hetfield does both and posting about it on our site. Check it out here, as the post went viral. Today, I’d like to point out that the Bible actually backs up Hetfield’s hunting. Yes, God actually ordains hunting and eating meat and there’s not one verse in the scriptures that condemns such activities as I write in my brand spanking new book, Rise, Kill...

    The FBI, the Virginia State Police and the Fairfax police department turned up the heat Wednesday in the search for the abductor and killer of Morgan Harrington, the 20-year-old Roanoke County woman whose skeletal remains were found more than two years ago on an Albemarle County farm. Authorities have launched a multimedia campaign -- which includes a public service announcement by Metallica guitarist and vocalist James Hetfield -- designed to renew public interest and develop leads for investigators in both the Harrington homicide case and an earlier abduction and sexual assault of another victim in Fairfax. DNA evidence has tied...

    Considering how immediate the best of it feels, it's always a little bit surprising how well metal music ages. While not everything still sounds fresh, many of the genre's cornerstone releases hold up extremely well. Slayer's Reign in Blood still sounds as fresh and vital as it did when it first came out, and Black Sabbath's Paranoid remains top-shelf. While not all of their albums hold up well, Metallica's Master of Puppets — which came out on this day in 1986, a full 25 years ago — remains a stone cold classic and an album by which other metal albums...

    The same man who abducted and killed Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington after a rock concert in Charlottesville last year may have sexually assaulted a woman in Fairfax City in 2005, state police said Thursday. The link between the two cases provides the first significant break in the Harrington case, which made national headlines. State police said there is a forensic link between the two cases. Sources said the cases are linked by a DNA match. Both are unsolved. In September 2005, a Fairfax woman was abducted and sexually assaulted as she walked home from a Giant supermarket. City of...

    The state medical examiner has confirmed the remains found on an Albemarle County Farm Tuesday are those of Morgan Harrington. Virginia State Police say the confirmation was made using dental records provided by the family and say the investigation continues into the time and cause of death.... Lt. Joe Rader, the lead investigator in Harrington's disappearance, said the area where the remains were discovered had not been searched previously. He added that the missing person case was now most likely a homicide. He said investigators were combing the area carefully, saying it was "imperative to maintain the sanctity of the...

    Morgan Harrington was seen hitchhiking for a ride on the Copeley Road Bridge on the night of her disappearance, according to a police brief released Nov. 13. “After the 9:30 (p.m.) timeframe, we can’t seem to establish any other sightings of her,” said Corinne Geller, spokeswoman for the Virginia State Police. It was also released in the brief that she was wearing a Swarovski Crystal necklace on that night. Harrington might have received a ride or approached someone to borrow a cell phone, Geller said. “She was wearing it that night,” Geller said. “She dropped her purse and her cell...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Run-DMC once hailed themselves as the Kings of Rock, so it's fitting that the pioneering rappers have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Run-DMC joins the heavy metal band Metallica, guitarist and former Yardbirds member Jeff Beck; soul singer and guitarist Bobby Womack and doo-wop group Little Anthony and the Imperials as this year's inductee class. Besides the main inductees, rockabilly singer Wanda Jackson got a nod for the early influence category, and the sidemen inductees are session musician Spooner Oldham and two of Elvis Presley's musicians — drummer D.J. Fontana and...

    The Federal Reserve is leading a desperate struggle to prop up one of the recording industry's biggest and most well known artists as its latest release continues to languish on store shelves and internet retailer warehouses around the country. Reminiscent of the flurry of bank buyouts conducted by the government in recent months, the Fed said it will pay Warner Brothers Records $30 million dollars for 2 million unsold copies of Metallica's new release "Death Magnetic" to buttress the label, whose exposure to a storm of criticism that the album sucks had led to a crisis in confidence that neither...

    Death Magnetic, the new Metallica album hitting stores next Friday, September 12th has been partially released by Metallica on their web site. 6 songs are available out of the 10. You can click here to listen to them. I highly recommend "All Nightmare Long", "Cyanide", and "My Apocalypse" of the 6 available to be the first you listen to. I however have heard the entire album. They held back some killers. Like the 1st track, "That Was Just Your Life". Killer and heavy. The days of St. Anger are long gone. So give a listen to those available, especially the...

    HEAVY-METAL superstar James Hetfield of the band Metallica has erected a metal fence on his property on a Terra Linda hilltop, closing off a popular trail and angering hikers, bikers and equestrians. Someone scrawled "SHAME DISGRACE" on the 300-foot-long, 8-to 10-foot-high corrugated metal silver fence adorned with barbed wire at its far edges. "Look at the barbed wire. This a serious fence," said hiker Tom McMillan of San Rafael, as he walked along the shiny behemoth late last week. The fence, at the end of a fire road in the Terra Linda-Sleepy Hollow Divide open space preserve, went up in...
