Okay. Suicide Silence’s new album The Black Crown came out today. I, personally won’t be listening to it, but some of you might be excited. I heard a few singles off of the album and that was plenty for me. I have talked mad shit on these guys in the past, especially about their cover songs (“Them Bones” by Alice In Chains” and “Engine No. 9″ by Deftones). Today I heard the band’s most recent cover song, Rob Zombie’s “Superbeast.” Now, I love Rob Zombie. I don’t know why, his songs are fucking catchy. “Superbeast” is a great song. I mean, the dudes played it in Airheads! Wait, most of you people are too young to know what that is. (KPPX! REBEL RADIO-O-O-O-O!) Well, while this new cover is different from the original, I will give them that this is the best one they’ve done yet. I’m not digging the Manson-esque clean vocals, but Mitch’s high screams fit it rather well. And the best part? No breakdowns! So, not a total shitfest. I’m still not listening to The Black Crown. I won’t do it. If you haven’t heard Slip-n-Slide Violence’s cover of “Superbeast,” listen to it below. If you are interested, The Black Crown is out today. Enjoy.

FYI, I think I may start calling them Slip-N-Slide Violence from now on.
