Down A Dead End Path: CALL OF THE VOID Release Album Teaser

I can say, honestly, that I have never heard of Call Of The Void before today. There was one clear indicator that told me I was going to like this band before even hearing them. What was it? They’re on fucking Relapse Records. I am a huge supporter of Relapse Records because a lot of my favorite bands have called that place home over the years. So when I settled down and checked out Call Of The Void, I knew it was going to be killer.     Continue reading

WTF Moment: Former ATREYU Guitarist Joins…… TRAPT


LOLOLOLOLOLOL The title says it fucking all…. Former Atreyu guitarist Travis Miguel has officially come out of retirement and joined Trapt!

I guess I don’t really give a shit but I know there has to be some closet Atreyu fan out there wanting to punch himself in the dick (and not just for having shitty taste in music).

All I’m gonna say is that I guess Atreyu broke up because Travis was too HEADSTRONG!!!
