Aftermath have premiered a lyric video for their song “Temptation Overthrown.” This track is from the band’s latest album “There is Something Wrong.” Kyriakos “Charlie” Tsiolis commented:

“In the album’s concept story timeline, ‘Temptation Overthrown’ is at the point when the masses have been truly informed and are united. They know who the enemy really is and it’s time for the people to control.”



Juliet Simms Premieres “100 Little Deaths” Music Video

Juliet Simms has premiered a new video for her new song “100 Little Deaths,” via NYLON. You can watch that below:

Simms commented:

“This song means a lot to me because it speaks to my experiences with my personal demons and the fight to overcome them. I wanted to create a video that was personal to me but could also resonate with others. I see the struggles that so many people battle with everyday and I wanted to share a piece of myself with them. Life is made up of failures and triumphs, convictions and doubt. The key is to find the ability and strength to turn off the destructive tendencies and grow stronger because of them.”

”My weakness, at the end of the day, is something that has made me stronger and more resilient. The little deaths we all experience while living our lives is a test of our strength, our endurance and ability to keep moving forward. You can let it kill your soul or you can use the death as a badge of honor, rise back up, and become immortal from the kill.”

Slipknot’s Corey Taylor On The Identity Of “Tortilla Man”: “Even If Somebody Gets It Right, We’re Not Gonna Confirm It”

During an appearance on SiriusXM‘s “Trunk Nation”, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor talked a bit about the band’s mysterious percussionist “Tortilla Man.” Current rumors seem to suggest that the musician is Michael Pfaff (Dirty Little Rabbits), but Taylor says the group have no plans to confirm his identity “even if somebody gets it right.”

Taylor said the following when asked about the interest in “Tortilla Man”:

“I did an interview with Rock Feed news like a week ago or so, and I said that it was Tito Puente. And people who had never heard of Tito Puente were, like, ‘Oh my God! He totally revealed who [it is].’ I’m, like, ‘Are you kidding?’ It is amazing the level of ridiculousness that not only permeates this band but permeates the fandom of this band. I’m just sitting back going, ‘I’ll feed you guys whatever.’ I mean, it’s beautiful. Just laying those little clues and people lose their minds. It’s awesome.”

He continued when asked if anyone has guessed his identity correctly online:

“I’ve seen a couple of things, and none of ’em have been right so far. I’m loving it, dude.”

He also added the following when asked if the band will just keep it a mystery:

“For us, it’s more about just keeping the spirit alive. ‘New guy’ doesn’t care. Even if somebody gets it right, we’re not gonna confirm it. It’s one of those things. For us, it’s more about getting the band out there. Because, to be honest, the one thing that kind of reminded us that the band is more important is that even after the album came out, people were still into the band no matter who was in it.

So, to us, it’s a reminder that the band is more important than worrying about conjecture about who ‘Tortilla Guy’ is. So we just basically politely answer those questions, but never fully commit to any correct answers. [Laughs]”

Megadeth’s David Ellefson Premieres “Sleeping Giants” Video

Megadeth’s David Ellefson has premiered a new video for “Sleeping Giants.“ The song, which features Ellefson’s business partner Thom Hazaert, MC Daryl “DMC” McDaniels (Run-DMC), Steve Conley (Flotsam And Jetsam), Ethan Brosh, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), and Ilias Papadakis (Memorain), serves as the title track to Ellefson’s “More Life With Deth” companion album.

Hazaert commented:

“David had all these great instrumental songs laying around, and ‘Sleeping Giants’ was one of them. He suggested I write and record some vocals parts for them, so I called up DMC and asked if he’d want to collaborate with us on a track, and we got to work. I’ve always loved off the wall metal/hip-hop collaborations, ‘Judgement Night’, etc. And I think ‘Giants’ definitely draws from that. The song and video both ended up with a really cool aggressive, old-school New York hardcore/hip-hop. feel. It my book, it doesn’t get any more legendary than RUN DMC. And this was definitely one for the history books.”

Ellefson added:

“It was truly an honor to collaborate with DMC, and I think the track came out great. When Thom said DMC wanted to do a collaboration with us, I instantly thought of ‘Sleeping Giants’. And when he came out to Revolution in Amityville to perform with us, and shoot the video, it was an awesome energy. I think everyone there got a show they won’t ever forget.”

Osbourne commented:

“This one’s the most elaborate collection so far. It’s very well thought-out and well put together. It’s got everything in there that you possibly could want and some surprises along the way. The sound of a vinyl record is different, and I do believe that vinyl sounds better.”
