In a weird tie-in to my past adventures in rock comes some news from DAWN OF ASHES. A few years back, I worked with some folks on the former management side of DOA when they were promoting their Metal Blade Records release, GENOCIDE CHAPTERS. The band evolved, management changed, and eventually Kristof and the DOA crew found a new home at Metropolis Records, who released the new DAWN OF ASHES record, ANATHEMA this week. Now, my friend Tom is doing some PR for DOA, and today I've got a FREE DOWNLOAD from ANATHEMA for all of you. Stream/Download "Poisoning The Steps of Babel (feat. Nero Bellum)" below!

I have kind of an unpopular opinion in regard to LIMP BIZKIT. I've never stopped liking them, and I dug their last album. It's trendy to bash the 'Bizkit, and as I've said many times over the years, a lot of the people that like to trash the band now were rockin' the backwards ballcaps and throwing down for the "Nookie" a decade ago. Now Fred Durst and Co. are on Cash Money Records, and the first music from their forthcoming STAMPEDE OF THE DISCO ELEPHANTS has surfaced online. Stream "Ready to Go" featuring LIL WAYNE below.
