Jerry Cantrell really holds MTV in high regard

Posted by on January 10, 2014

OK, so our respect for Jerry Cantrell has just gone up even more. We already gave him props earlier today for being a thoughtful gift giver (btw, we’re not necessarily condoning anything, just sayin’), but yesterday, Alice In Chains posted the above picture on their Facebook page. If you’re wondering what you’re looking at, it’s […]

Dimebag knew how to throw a Christmas party

Posted by on January 10, 2014

If you were to imagine what a party at late Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell Abbott’s would be like, you’d probably imagine a pretty raucous scene – rock stars, drugs and lots of black tooth grins. Photographer Matthew Salacus got to spend what turned out to be Dimebag’s last Christmas with him, and all of those […]

Alice In Chains’ Video For Stone Rocks

Posted by on April 18, 2013

[youtube]http://youtu.be/9KmYFY5oOvM[/youtube] Well, that’s kind of literal. One of the first things you see in the video is a guy pushing a stone up a hill (Sisyphus?). The band is playing on a mountaintop surrounded by rocks. There’s also a guy that’s got a stone on a cart. And hey, some people turn to stone. All […]

Posted by on April 11, 2013

[youtube]http://youtu.be/Pj_yw4qA2HA[/youtube] It’s been a few weeks since we first heard Alice In Chains’ “Stone,” and we still can’t get over that awesome riff. The band played on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, and we can confirm that it kicks ass in a live setting as well. The band appeared on the show, playing that song, as […]

Oh Hey, It’s Another New Alice In Chains Song

Posted by on March 26, 2013

[youtube]http://youtu.be/cKs5Al4abYU[/youtube] Yesterday, Alice In Chains’ new single, “Stone,” blew us away with it’s ridiculous riffage. It went out to radio everywhere yesterday. Meanwhile, back in the band’s home town of Seattle, rock station KISW played another new song, “Phantom Limb.” Much like “Hollow,” this is a mid-tempo sludgy, riffy song that’s undeniably Alice In Chains. William […]

Posted by on December 7, 2012

Guitarist Jerry Cantrell recently confirmed that Alice In Chains had completed recording a new album. And even though he said the new album would be due out next year, we figured we still had a while before we’d get to hear new material. As it turns out, we only have to wait roughly two weeks, […]

Alice In Chains Finish Recording New Album

Posted by on December 4, 2012

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBcADQziQWY[/youtube] In 2009, Alice In Chains took a lot of people by surprise with Black Gives Way To Blue, the bands first album in 14 years. Following the death of original vocalist Layne Staley, nobody expected William DuVall to fill his shoes so well. Not only did the sound like vintage AiC, but the amazing job […]

Metal Insider’s Top 5: Comeback Albums Of The 2000s

Posted by on June 11, 2012

Metal Insider’s Top 5 is a column where we count down the top five of…well basically anything. There’s a lot at stake for a band that’s been out of the public eye for years or simply experienced their fair share of bad luck. In some cases, those said bands have already been written off by many as hopeless […]

April 5th Cements Status As One Of The Darkest Days In Music History

Posted by on April 5, 2012

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYrBqO45PTk[/youtube] As you’ve probably heard by now, Jim Marshall, founder of Marshall Amplifiers, died earlier today. The Marshall amp is synonymous with rock and roll, and while Marshall led a long and fulfilling life, the same can’t be said for Layne Staley, Kurt Cobain and former KISS guitarist Mark St. John, all of whom died […]
