FREE TIX to KRYPTONITE MetalFest

We've got some killer PROMO stuff to give away — this time around, the people at the annual KRYPTONITE METALFEST have given us 4 tickets to their killer annual METAL event. WHO KNEW that MIAMI even HAD a METAL scene ??!? Apparently, some of the kids down there are fed up with the Uber-Ghey pop culture down there, and decided to lash back!

There are plenty of bands to kick your ass, including MENDACITY - HATCHET FACE - THERMAL DISSEMINATION - BITCHFIRE - 1000 POUNDS OF THRUST - KIMLIN - MADSIC - UPHEAVAL and HATE MACHINE.

If you're interested, visit the forum and PM me (Dark One) and we will work something out - First come, first served!

IRON MAIDEN announces Florida show!

Metal Gods IRON MAIDEN have confirmed that their final show of their "Somewhere Back in Time World Tour" will wrap up in Fort Lauderdale, April 2nd at the BankAtlantic Center. It's been 13 years since MAIDEN has appeared in the sunshine state. Our hopes are to wipe away the memories of Iron Maiden's last Florida appearance when then singer Blaze Bailey was the frontman, and guitarist Adrian Smith was replaced by Janick Gers! Yikes! This is a show that is long overdue, and we certainly can't wait!

TIWANAKU post new songs

Central Florida based TIWANAKU have posted 2 new demo songs on the band's official website at this location. The band features Wade Black (CRIMSON GLORY) on vocals, Emo Mowery (ex-NOCTURNUS) on guitar/vocals and Mike Estes (BURNING INSIDE, ACHERON) on guitar. Sitting in on bass as a special guest on the upcoming track "Today in Battle" was none other than Alex Webster from CANNIBAL CORPSE fame.

TIWANAKU's full-length debut is being produced by Neil Kernon (NEVERMORE, QUEENSRĊ¸CHE, DOKKEN) and is tentatively due before the end of the year via an as-yet-undetermined record label.
