Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale sang with Adrenaline Mob on two cover songs in Nashville, Tennessee on April 5, 2013. The super hot singer from Halestorm shared lead vocals on “Come Undone,” a Duran Duran cover. Hale then sang lead on Heart’s “Barracuda.” Adrenaline Mob was performing at Exit/Inn in support of their album “Omerta.”

GOR on Adrenaline Mob: While I appreciate the talent (Mike Portnoy, duh) in Adrenaline Mob, I still can’t get into their original music.
GOR on Lzzy Hale: Lzzy Hale is without a doubt one of the best lead singers in rock music right now, period.
Volbeat is awesome and probably my favorite hard rock band bringing the thunder today. You know who else is awesome? King Diamond. You know what’s even “awesomer”? Volbeat and King Diamond rocking the shit out together. You get just that on “Room 24,” a sick new track which features King and Volbeat frontman Michael Poulsen exchanging lead vocal lines. “Room 24″ is available for free download. I recommend you get your free copy right now. Click here to download “Room 24.” Next week look for the brand new Volbeat album “Outlaw Gentlemen and Shady Ladies.” Hell yeah!
Guitarist Richie Sambora has decided to quit Bon Jovi. According to sources, frontman Jon Bon Jovi and Sambora have been fighting over money. Additionally, Bon Jovi is said to consistently belittle Sambora. Apparently this split has been a long time coming. I am sure more information will come out soon regarding Sambora’s decision to leave the band during its 2013 tour.
Accept has announced that the metal band will film a new live DVD during its upcoming concert in Santiago, Chile. “This is gonna be awesome,” said the group via its official Facebook page. “We can’t wait for this one.”
The band is playing The Metal Fest in Santiago on April 12, 2013. Accept is currently touring in support of last year’s epic release “Stalingrad.”
Black Sabbath album artwork for their upcoming record “13″ is now available. Check it out below.
Do you think this comeback album will suck or will it be genius? I guess we will see whenever the Internet leak happens. Until the streams start rolling in, we can only speculate.
Remember, this album has Ozzy Osbourne on vocals, Tony Iommi on guitar, Geezer Butler on bass, and Brad Wilk (Rage Against The Machine) on drums. Will no Bill Ward on drums mean no Black Sabbath magic?

Rock group My Chemical Romance called it quits on March 22, 2013. This band released several solid hard rock albums such as “The Black Parade” and “Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge.” Unfortunately, the group was unfairly labeled “emo” due to the timing of their success. If you can get passed this ludicrous label then you will find a true hard rock talent in this band. Here are the Top 10 songs released by My Chemical Romance:
During this time of year, you will find many March Madness Brackets featuring the greatest rock bands of all time. The bracket-style tournament is a fun opportunity to discuss picks and spew out hatred on other people’s picks.
Gears of Rock released the best hard rock and heavy metal March Madness tournament bracket last year. Because it was perfect and the greatest bands of all-time rarely change, there was no need to make a new one. Print out your official heavy metal March Madness tournament bracket right here. I can assure you it is the best one you will find (even though I think they are really stupid). Cheers and enjoy…
For the second time, Motley Crue will be hitting up The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas for a block of shows. The residency begins September 18, 2013 and ends October 6, 2013. Insider Robin Leach reports that there will be a whole new stage set. An official announcement is expected sometime today.
April 1, 2013 is here and along with this day of tomfoolery comes the Slayeriffic April Fool’s pranks. This morning Spencer Kaufman of LoudWire reported that members of Slayer and Anthrax will unite to form Slanthrax. Axl Rosenberg at MetalSucks reported that Jason Newsted will fill in for frontman/bassist Tom Araya.
Most readers at these highly respected metal blogs indicated in the comment sections that they “got the prank,” while others legitimately shared their contentment or disappointment of these “news” stories.
“Fake or not Lambardo should be the one drumming,” commented William Rahmer on LoudWire.
“My 6 year old son loves Jason Newstead. He will be delighted to hear this,” said Strapping Young Lad! on MetalSucks.
