    Deftones and Far Supergroup Crosses Set New Release and Live Dates ::Crosses News ::antiMusic.com

    Crosses, the side project featuring Deftones frontman Chino Moreno, Far's Shaun Lopez, and Scott Chuck, will be following up their debut EP with yet another short form release later this month and will be playing some live shows.
    Last August Crosses quietly surfaced with a free download of their debut EP '†††.' The debut was just the first chunk of 16 completed songs the band plans to release via EP, they also contributed the track 'The Years' to the soundtrack for the popular 'Batman: Arkham City' video game.

    Now Crosses have dropped the unusual trailer for the next EP release '††' — which will be available January 24th. It has also been reported that Deftones have a new album planned for 2012, as does Moreno's other side project Team Sleep

    Music Review: Heavy Metal Presents: Gates Volume 1 – Ascension | Geeks of Doom

    For over 30 years Heavy Metal — the sci-fi/fantasy comic — has graced comic shop shelves with visceral covers featuring Adonis-like men with rippling muscles and svelte, pointy-breasted semi-naked women. This year Heavy Metal has released a soundtrack of metal and electronica to accompany its first web comic: Gates. If that wasn’t cool enough, all net proceeds go towards the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund.



    Gates is dedicated to the art of Frank Frazetta and the music of Ronnie James Dio, and is also, according to its creator Hal Hefner, an homage to the soundtrack of the Heavy Metal film from the 1980s. Releasing an album almost as a companion piece to a 30-year-old soundtrack might seem like a strange idea. Taken on its own, Gates Volume 1 – Ascension is a good collection of tracks.

    Deltanaut’s “The King” with its strangely sexy Michael Bolton sax licks (wait, did I just say ‘Michael Bolton’ and ‘sexy’ in the same sentence? Bloody hell, don’t tell anyone) sounds like it was performed in a seedy jazz club; it feels beautifully dirty and is a great blues rock track. Deltanaut also boasts an ex-member of Megadeth in drummer Nick Menza.

    Some of them, including the soppy “Fools Bleed” by Black ‘N Blue and Prince-lite Friend Slash Lover’s “Where Have I Been All My Life” feel slightly out of place. While not particularly bad songs — “Fools Bleed” is a fine, but not very exciting hard rock song — they don’t quite fit, feeling a little too straight forward. They don’t quite match the strange atmospherics of Jordan Reyne’s “The Washing Machine Song” or the blasting black metal of Elysion Fields’ “Of Titans.”

    If “The Entity (Ghostly Lust)” is not an ideal track title for a sci-fi fantasy compilation then I don’t know what is. Shame the song by Rusty Eye (Ewww…) does not quite match. The headbanging insanity of “This Violent Earth” by Havoc Hate (surprisingly it is not a folk band) is the track of the album. Fast, heavy, excellent.

    No, it’s not perfect but soundtracks rarely are. But, to discover some bands that many will never have heard and to put some money towards a very good cause, Gates Volume 1 – Ascension is well worth checking out.

    I had no idea the dudes from Far were part of that. I thought it was just Chino. Interesting.

    Guess he's abandoning How To Destroy Angels, then?

    EDIT: Nevermind, I should have read the article first.

    Sammy Hagar Says The New Van Halen Song "Should Be Better Than It Is" | Rock News | Eddie Trunk

    Honestly, even with his book I thought Sammy had been really honest(to a fault) and came off as taking sort of a roundabout high road...this is the first time he has sounded 'sour-grapey' in a long while.

    I figured I'd advertise a bit and post the latest video of this Slovenian black metal band. Band members are my friends and they released their 3rd full-length last year. The music can be classified as somewhat atmospheric/melodic post-black metal, then again ... it's up to you to decide.

    Just so you get a quick taste of how extreme music sounds in Kopi's homeland
