CHUCK BILLY IS HONORED BY AN ASSEMBLYMAN!

chuckbilly

This is BADASS! According to TestamentLegions.com, Assembly member Jim Frazier honored Testament front man, Chuck Billy, on the State Assembly floor for the positive influence he has made in the Native American community and on the general public!

Here’s what Jim Frazier said on Chuck: “The world of music is inhabited by creative and talented individuals whose work enhances the quality of life for all who are fortunate enough to have entered their sphere of influence. Not only does Chuck Billy embody all of these admirable qualities, he also personifies the strength and enduring spirit of Native Americans.

Hell yes! Congratulations to Chuck on the honor and much respect to Jim Frazier for showing the metal legend some love! We usually get bad publicity, so anytime someone steps up to acknowledge the good in our scene, we must celebrate it! This is truly AWESOME!

Here’s the official release:

DAVID DISANTO FROM VEKTOR: “JAIL FUCKING SUCKS!”

vektor

Do you remember last week when David DiSanto from Vektor was arrested for allegedly tossing a beer at a Christian protestor at the Scion Rock Fest? Hilarious right?! Since then, we have learned that the charges were dropped and now we have the first statement from the front man! Here’s what he said on the insane last week: “I’ve spent the past few days settling into ‘normal’ life and enjoying being home, so even though the coals may have cooled a bit since this weekend, I wanted to give my side of the story.”

“A lot has been said about what happened, and I just want to clarify a few things. I did not haul out and throw a beer bottle at someone. I was around someone who I felt was antagonizing an event and people I cared about. I was annoyed, and I had a beer in my hand. (Something I’m sure many of you can relate to.) What I did was a momentary lapse in judgment, nothing more, nothing less.”

“I’m not some meathead or asshole who would pick on someone for their beliefs. I don’t give a shit what anyone’s personal beliefs are (unless their beliefs include hatred towards a specific gender, race, or sexual orientation — those people are assholes). What the protester was doing wasn’t right — but now that I look back on it, what I did wasn’t right either.”

“I do believe that people have the right to protest, but I guess I draw the line when it borders on insanity. People who show up at a public gathering spouting their extremist beliefs would better serve society in a mental institution.”

“What I learned from this was that nobody should try to spread their message by antagonizing other people. I didn’t change his mind, and he didn’t change mine.”

“VEKTOR has always been about spreading the truth of science, the errors of mankind, and thinking for yourself. Organized religion doesn’t always mesh with what we stand for. In a way, I hope that this at least gets people thinking about the problem we have with communicating with each other. There are a lot of things that I feel strongly about. That’s why I write the lyrics I do — and I’m stoked when fans (like all of you) find that message and support it. However, I’m not going to go to a church and start blasting ‘Dark Creations, Dead Creators’ at the people there, haha.”

“And, for the record, being in jail FUCKING SUCKS, especially when you’re the only longhair in the joint, haha. I was arrested at 10 p.m. on Saturday, and wasn’t released until 5 a.m. Tuesday morning. I got seriously lucky with the judge and the public attorney assigned to my case (hence my charges getting dropped), and I escaped unharmed (no horror stories here). I made a stand for what I believe in, and there were consequences. It happens.”

“Anyway, I guess I’ve said enough. I do want to thank everybody out there for having my back (all the ‘FREE DAVE!’ posts have been cracking me up, haha). Honestly, I had no idea word would spread like it did. I also want to thank my kick-ass wife Katy for supporting me while I was cut off from the outside world, and going ape-shit on everyone at the jail in order to expedite my release.”

“ALRIGHT THEN! That’s that. I look forward to seeing all you humanoids the next time VEKTOR invades your town, and in three weeks we will be making our debut in Europe at HELLFEST! FUCK YEAH!!”

DAVE IS FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BUTCHER BABIES: “I SMELL A MASSACRE” SINGLE RELEASED!

butcherbabies

Butcher Babies will be releasing their debut album, “Goliath“, on July 9th via Century Media Records. Love them or hate them, this band has truly taken off in the past few years. From touring with OTEP, to signing with Century Media, to opening up for Marilyn Manson and being featured on this summer’s Mayhem Festival, they seem to be everywhere! Now that the new album is coming out, let’s see what the future holds for them! The band got to work with the amazing producer, Josh Wilbur, on this record and his legacy is well known. He’s worked with Lamb Of God, Hatebreed, Gojira and more, so you know the CD is going to sound incredible! So how are the songs? Our first taste of new material is “I Smell A Massacre” and you can hear it below!
