Saturday, June 8th, The big Orion + Music Festival that Metallica put together opened up in Detroit. Opening the 2nd stage was a band called “dehaan”. Or so they wanted you to think. In actuality, it was the festival headliners themselves, and Metallica took the small stage and ripped into the full “Kill ‘Em All” album in it’s entirety! Great way to get things rolling for the festival, and a cool reward for those that were smart enough to get there early. For those of us that couldn’t make it, feel free to relax and crank up video of the full set right here. Enjoy!
The new Black Sabbath album, 13, finally came out last week. And with it, the band released the video for the new song “End of the Beginning” which was featured on an episode of CSI last month (obviously, not all 8 minutes of it were on the show, but they filmed the full song for the video). They also put out the official video for the song we got a couple of months ago, “God is Dead?”, which you can watch below. The album debuted at #1 in Britain…Sabbath’s first #1 album there since “Paranoid” in 1970! I guess it happens every 43 years, so the next #1 for them will be in 2056!!!
