It’s time for heroes and villains to collide as one of gameplay’s most epic team-ups brings its characters to the front lines – of comic books. Marvel is pleased to announce a series of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Variant Covers, inspired by and featuring characters from the popular game. Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will be released on September 19th, but you can find these variants in comic stores throughout the month of August.  

Cassian Andor and his reprogrammed Imperial security droid K-2SO have a partnership that rivals the closeness of Luke Skywalker and R2-D2. But like all great stories, that wasn’t always the case. So how did the great partnership of human and droid come to be? This August, find out the real history between the two characters when Marvel releases STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE – CASSIAN & K-2SO SPECIAL #1, written by acclaimed author Duane Swierczynski (Cable, Punisher: Frank Castle) with art by Fernando Blanco (Marvel Zombies, Thunderbolts).  

We keep hearing the whole argument that “rock is dead” because the industry isn’t selling like it used to. I don’t agree with that statement at all, but what’s obvious is that every rock band today that you come across needs to step up the game a little bit more. Instead of trying to duplicate Nickelback’s success or whatever it is Shinedown is doing, bands should at least be focusing on better songwriting to give the genre a bit of a kickstart. Life of Agony, who are no strangers to both the metal and rock scene, pulled through NJ on the release tour for their new album, A Place Where There’s No More Pain, and with this particular show they managed to bring together bands from across the board for one...

Released in 1987, Triumph And Agony is the fourth studio album from German heavy metal titans WARLOCK. The record was a mammoth success globally with hit singles and MTV’s Headbangers Ball favorites “All We Are” and “Für immer” among other now-pinnacle anthems like “East Meets West,” “Metal Tango,” “I Rule The Ruins,” and “Touch Of Evil.” Triumph And Agony stands among heavy metal’s true cult classics.  

Clearing the air, know this in advance: The Night Flight Orchestra isn’t a metal band. Hardly one, as a matter of fact. Instead, this robust supergroup, which features the likes of Bjorn “Speed” Strid and David Andersson from Soilwork and Sharlee D’Angelo from Arch Enemy, is a love letter to 70’s and 80’s rock songs, and has been quietly putting albums out since 2012. Amber Galactic is the first major label album, and it’s a wonder as to why this group hadn’t been given this much publicity prior. The Night Flight Orchestra share more in common with bands like ELO and Boston than their melodic death metal counterparts. So, right away, if you can’t enjoy that style of music, it’s best to not even...

 Multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated band Goo Goo Dolls today announce the release of their new 5 song EP You Should Be Happy, via Warner Bros. Records.  The EP was recorded at EastWest studios in LA and produced by Drew Pearson (OneRepublic, Katy Perry) who first collaborated with the band on their previous release, Boxes.  

The Alien franchise is a mixed bag, no doubt. While the first two are universally agreed upon as masterworks in horror, sci-fi, and action genres, two of the films are also considered disposable garbage by many sources and a supposed prequel, Prometheus, seems to be divisive and a flawed work of art. To say being an Alien fan is scary business, because unlike in space, everyone can hear you scream in frustration with this franchise. Alien: Covenant was a long time coming, and while there has been some hype for it, knowing that only two of the five canon films are undeniable classics is enough to know that this could go both ways.  

The Weapon X program is back! From writer Greg Pak (Weapon X, Totally Awesome Hulk) comes an all-new crossover between WEAPON X and TOTALLY AWESOME HULK, kicking off this June with WEAPONS OF MUTANT DESTRUCTION: ALPHA #1!

Another day, another story about Visa issues and European bands. In the past few years, Visa Issues have become a widespread problem with bands, with the likes of Cradle of Filth and Obscura being victims of this system.
