Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor didn't hesitate to call "Prepare for Hell" one of the best tours of the band's career. It says a lot that both Slipknot and Korn are still going strong, releasing interesting material and putting on such strong performances 15+ years later. The thousands of fans in attendance clearly loved it, and the late Gray would be proud to see his brothers carrying on his legacy with such reverence.

Buddy from Senses Fail posted a message on Facebook asking what it is that upsets people so much about him speaking out for LBGTQ rights.
What is it that upsets people so much about me (Buddy Nielsen) speaking up about LGBTQ rights? I am generally interested to hear what it is that bothers people so much about it?

I don't want others to have to suffer the way I did....
Not everything is about revenue. These streaming services are bringing people back in to the fold who would otherwise only be pirating music. They are also giving smaller and mid slze artists a platform. The radio is still very powerful and the same amount of artists have been blowing up year after year on radio since well before I was born. Those hits add up to big dollars for the artists who have them, yet those are the people upset? I always find it interesting that the artists who complain most about spotify and similar sites are the ones making the...

The Huffington Post has posted a feature story on Circa Survive's Descensus and the struggles frontman Anthony Green went through prior to recording the record.

Iím super ashamed and Brendan confronted me about it today and I kind of just told him everything. Iím going to go get help,í" Frangicetto said. "And it was like, holy shit, I did not expect that.
