They haven’t released their album yet, but I can already tell it will be a candidate for album of the year. Last week, Them Crooked Vultures made their New York debut at Roseland Ballroom with a phenomenal performance that is one of the best shows I’ve ever been to. Then again what else should I expect from a supergroup composed of  drummer Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Probot), lead guitarist and vocalist Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), rhythm guitarist Alain Johannes (Queens of the Stone Age), and bassist, keyboardist, and legend, John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin).

In one of World Wrestling Entertainment’s more inspired moves Monday Night RAW is going to be hosted by a man whose notoriety eclipses that of Vince McMahon, Ozzy. Unlike other celebrity hosts such as Jeremy Piven or Reverend Al Sharpton, Ozzy is a perfect fit for the world of professional wrestling. (Or sports entertainment as it’s supposedly referred to in WWE Headquarters) Their creative team has tried for years to come up with characters that are just like Ozzy. Unfortunately, you can’t beat the genuine article. And to make matters even better, this isn’t Ozzy’s first foray into the WWE. Long time fans like myself know he managed the British Bulldogs (Davey Boy Smith and the Dynamite...

Sometimes you can judge a band by an album cover.  I did in the winter of 2000. I was reading Metal Edge when I stumbled upon an advertisement for a concept album, called “Avenger” by a band named ASKA. The image featured a woman clad in Witchblade attire, with a zombie like alien behind her. Beneath the image was a blurb that read “ The Outworlders had won…their conquest of Earth was now truly complete. All resistance to their control was obliterated by mandatory sterilization. Today, the last breeder male was found and executed. His mate would blame her body’s state on the Outworld oppressors and she would hope that the child she now carried in her womb would be the One…the One the prophets had foretold...

If you’re like me, you think MTV is the worst thing to happen to music since…I can’t think of an analogy right now. Once a bastion of rebellion, MTV has gone from the network that brought us great programs like Headbangers Ball and played music to bringing heaping mounds of homunculus turds like My Super Sweet Sixteen to living rooms in America and the world. And I can pin point where this changed happened, the day when Beavis and Butthead left the air.

You could say that there are basically two types of bands: the first type includes all those lost heroes who follow their creative path from start to finish, never minding the consequences of their artistic choices. The second type gathers all the bright young talents who are more of an industry product designed to succeed rather than a genuine (and thus convincing) musical group. Sadly, it’s usually the second kind that gets all the attention and mainstream success, while the first often ends in oblivion. But what if you try joining the two together? What would come out of such a fiendish mixture? Well… enter Therapy?. This Irish rock band has been walking on the mainstream tightrope for nearly 20 years now, constantly...

We all know “Number of the Beast”, “You Got Another Thing Coming”, and just about every song by Metallica, but for every “Enter Sandman” there’s a dozen of just as good (if not better) songs.  Want some examples? Here are ten (in no particular order) of the most underrated songs by some of the greatest bands in hard rock.
