Hevy Fest bites the dust

Posted by on April 13, 2016

It’s well known that a lot of metal doesn’t make a ton of money. It’s a labor of love, really.

Posted by on March 31, 2016

We’re pretty sure Randy Blythe of Lamb of God can do just about anything. Scream like a demon, write like a poet, be a photographer and now- a lifestyle magazine?

Want to buy Ed Force One?

Posted by on March 30, 2016

It’s pretty safe to say you can’t get any more badass than Iron Maiden. Who else releases an album and goes on tour right after their frontman recovers from cancer? And on said tour fly their own plane? That’s right. You can’t. Stop trying. But their plane, Ed Force One, has been a big topic […]
