Metallica To Release New Album “72 Seasons” In April, Announce Tour With Pantera, Five Finger Death Punch, Etc.

“72 Seasons” Track Listing:

01. “72 Seasons”
02. “Shadows Follow”
03. “Screaming Suicide”
04. “Sleepwalk My Life Away”
05. “You Must Burn!”
06. “Lux Æterna”

09. “If Darkness Had A Son”
10. “Too Far Gone?”

James Hetfield commented

“72 seasons. The first 18 years of our lives that form our true or false selves. The concept that we were told ‘who we are’ by our parents. A possible pigeonholing around what kind of personality we are. I think the most interesting part of this is the continued study of those core beliefs and how it affects our perception of the world today. Much of our adult experience is reenactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”

Watch Ice Nine Kills Perform “Hip To Be Scared” With Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix At 2022 Aftershock Festival

During their October 6 set at the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, CA, Ice Nine Kills were joined onstage by Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix for a performance of “Hip To Be Scared.” You can see fan-filmed footage of that below:

Hyro The Hero Releases New EP “Worst Behavior”

Hyro The Hero has released a new EP titled “Worst Behavior.” The effort features four tracks including: “Who’s That Playing On The Radio?” (feat. Mötley Crüe’s Mick Mars and Asking Alexandria’s Danny Worsnop), “Retaliation Generation” (feat. Ice Nine Kills’ Spencer Charnas), “Worst Behavior,” and “5 Senses.” Hyro commented:

“My new EP ‘Worst Behavior’ is exactly that, it’s me acting bad on these tracks. My mindset was on performance mode, since I have not toured in awhile due to the pandemic. I wanted to capture the energy I feel on stage through these songs on this record. It’s full-on energy with the same Hyro The Hero spirit, just a little more advanced now.”

Crown The Empire Dropped From “Trinity Of Terror” Dates Amid Abuse Allegations, We Came As Romans To Replace Them

Crown The Empire will no longer be joining Ice Nine Kills, Black Veil Brides, and Motionless In White on the second leg of their “Trinity Of Terror” tour. We Came As Romans will now be taking their place.

Tour Dates:

08/30 Denver, CO – Red Rocks Amphitheatre (feat. In This Moment) (no We Came As Romans)
09/03 Omaha, NE – Liberty First Credit Union Arena
09/04 Pryor, OK – Rocklahoma (no We Came As Romans)
09/06 Fort Wayne, IN – Allen County War Memorial Expo Center
09/07 Cleveland, OH – Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica
09/09 Scranton, PA – Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain
09/10 Alton, VA – Blue Ridge Rock Fest (no We Came As Romans)

09/16 Bonner Springs, MO – Azura Amphitheater
09/17 Saint Charles, MO – The Family Arena
09/18 Cincinnati, OH – ICON at The Andrew J Brady Music Center

Crown The Empire’s removal from the trek is seemingly related to abuse allegations that were leveled against guitarist Brandon Hoover. The alleged victim said the following about those accusations:

“When Brandon stood over me LAUGHING and screaming over and over that I was a cheating slut and he was done with me while I sobbed in the fetal position trying to protect myself because he had already thrown me across the room into a dresser and left me covered in bruises… he had already begun replacing me with the girl he is now dating. He gaslit me entirely for feeling confused and upset when he took me out of his music video in favor of casting “some random girl” who acted weird around me on set until I had to leave for work… it wasn’t until months after our breakup I finally realised who she was and how she was completely part of his life so quickly after we separated. After that incident spanned an entire night, he claimed to black out whilst still conscious and couldn’t remember what he did to me. He begged me to forgive him and promised to quit drinking and get into therapy. I knew I wasn’t safe but I loved him so much I tried to let him change. Two weeks later he was drinking again on tour, lying about it every day to me and telling me how much he was resenting me for being the reason he had to stop (he hadn’t stopped). When he finally admitted it a day before I was to fly out to be with him on tour he expected me to cave like I always had, forgive and accept his violation of my boundaries and “trust” him, and put myself in further danger. Saying I couldn’t take it anymore was the hardest thing I ever had to do because my love was real, the person I felt it for just didn’t exist. He was simply a figment of the manipulation he created to keep me around while I gave over everything I had to him for a year. I truly don’t know how to escape this nightmare. I will never be the same, and he is doing everything in his power to silence me. I’ll probably wake up tomorrow and this account will be gone too. Please follow me on TikTok and Twitter – @bambimaryjane and @downlowbambi He wants me to disappear and I’m starting to feel like I should. Share this if you’re able.”

She also shared a conversation she had with ex-Crown The Empire drummer Brent Taddie:

Ice Nine Kills Premiere “The Shower Scene” Music Video

Ice Nine Kills have premiered a new video for their song “The Shower Scene.” The “Psycho”-inspired track is from the band’s latest album “The Silver Scream 2: Welcome To Horrorwood.” The video features Nadia Teichmann, Victoria Potter Worsnop, Joe Bob Briggs (“Casino,” “The Last Drive In”), Scout Taylor-Compton (“Halloween”), Bill Moseley (“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2,” “The Devil’s Rejects”), and Ricky Dean Logan (“Freddy’s Dead,” “Back To The Future Part II”). Frontman Spencer Charnas commented:

“While paying tribute to perhaps the most influential horror film of all time, Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘Psycho,’ we simultaneously continue the INK Horrorwood Saga we began exactly a year ago to the day. Will this be the end? Or is the next chapter just right around the cororner…”
