News of the week – Grindcore’s Doctor Who

Highlights

Bad week for touring rock band, once again, as Black Cobra and The Ghost Inside were both involved in separate car accidents. Black Cobra‘s van was totaled but the band continued to tour nonetheless. The Ghost Inside were not so lucky with several members ending up at a hospital. Tragically, their bus driver died in the accident and a a Gofundme page has been put in place where you can donate as much as you want, but probably not as much as Bring Me The Horizon who gave 10 000$ helping the band get closer to the goal of 125 000$ to pay for the funeral and medical expense.

A new Graf Orlock song is streaming via Noisey. The band’s new album, Crime traveler, will be released on 5th February via Vitriol Records. Time traveling being quite a novelty for grindcore, or hardcore, could Graf Orlock be the genre’s Doctor Who?

Want some more progressive death metal? Obscura is back to take care of your needs.

Well, it seems that Powerman 5000 continues to exist.

Paradise Lost are streaming one song from their live DVD, Symphony for the lost.

Curiosity

Last week, a cop came on stage in uniform to sing Dechristianize with Vital Remains. The cop had already given his resignation but he was asked to leave earlier because of the event.

Here is some footage of The Melvins practicing in 1985.

Why, oh god, why?!

Disturbed are back. You will notice that Powerman 5000‘s new video is not in this category. The reason being that Powerman 5000 are only escapism and don’t oversell themselves (aside from giving the opinion, like every band past their prime) that they still play in front of thousands of people. Disturbed on the other hand are the perfect representation of egotistical musicians.
