New York heavy metal band, Unlocking the Truth, have signed a deal with Sony Records worth potentially $1.7 million. Best part? The members are in eighth grade.
Sacks says the boys have a chance of becoming the new face of rock because they are unique — black artists excelling in heavy metal, a genre typically dominated by white musicians. The seven-figure Sony contract was submitted for a Manhattan judge’s approval Friday because the musicians are minors.

Nick Hipa, former As I Lay Dying guitarist and current Wovenwar member, has written a post about his thoughts after the Tim Lambesis trial.
Last Friday I sat in a courtroom to support a friend. For the better part of a decade our professional and personal lives were woven in a relationship akin to family. As if family, the intention of my attendance was to publicly acknowledge the deep care and compassion I hold for this individual.

I watched as she searched for the strength to behold her transgressor for the first time in over a year since learning of his plot to have her murdered. I listened to her describe the love she once possessed for this man whom she adored, trusted, and...
