Few (if any) radio shows could ever claim to challenge the legendary status of the late John Peel's THE PEEL SESSIONS on the BBC's Radio 1. Having first discovered them myself while sifting through the import CD racks of several long-gone indie record shops throughout the midwest, these little gems were live performances from some of rocks biggest names along with many underground legends and true sonic innovators.
After being on hiatus for nearly a decade, ARMORED SAINT have returned with LA RAZA(due March 16, 2010 on Metal Blade) - their first set of entirely new material since 2000's REVELATION. The on-again-off-again band (due to vocalist John Bush being the in-again-out-again frontman of ANTHRAX) has been taunting fans with the prospect of a new album since 2008 when bassist Joey Vera revealed that he and Bush had started writing together again.

"All hail Jesus Frankenstein" wails Rob Zombie on the opening track of his long-awaited HELLBILLY DELUXE 2: NOBLE JACKALS, PENNY DREADFULS, AND THE SYSTEMATIC DEHUMANIZATION OF COOL, the fourth studio album from the musician-turned-filmmaker, and his first for Roadrunner's Loud & Proud imprint.
Unless your name is Meatloaf, sequels to albums rarely work, and unfortunately HELLBILLY DELUXE 2 is no exception.

When it was announced in early 2009 that Richard Christy had finished working on music for a new project, hard rock fans were intrigued. Long-known for his drumming chops displayed through DEATH, ICED EARTH, and more, Christy had become known recently not for music, but for his gig on THE HOWARD STERN SHOW, along with acting turns in the direct-to-dvd horror flop ALBINO FARM and the sequel to HAROLD & KUMAR. Caught by curiosity, fans were curious to know exactly what type of project Christy had been assembling.
