Unlocking the Truth, the teen metal band that signed with Sony, will be releasing a book next year.
G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers, part of Penguin Group (USA), said Friday that it would publish a book written by the Brooklyn trio chronicling the group's "path to success." Unlocking the Truth is signed to the new label The Cherry Party, a division of Sony. The band played at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this year and has opened for Guns N' Roses.

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.

Bryan Romero, an AP.net reader, is looking for OC/LA metal drummers to participate in a scientific study for his graduate program.
Hey OC/LA metal drummers! Have you ever wondered how athletic drumming actually is? Well here is your chance! My name is Bryan Romero, and I am a Kinesiology graduate student at CSU Fullerton in Orange county. My masters thesis is titled "Metabolic Demands of Heavy Metal Drumming" and my aim is to find out how much our bodies work while we play metal music. I am currently looking for metal drummers to come to the exercise physiology lab at CSU Fullerton to be hooked up to a mask that you breathe into while exercising that tells you how many calories you burn...

Supposedly Norma Jean ripped them off. Fans can't stop yelling their name out at Minus the Bear, Narrows, and (case in point, last night) These Arms Are Snakes shows. Everyone and your mom wants to see at least one more show from them. Botch are held on the high end by metal heads, post-hardcore nuts and mathematicians/digital fiends. Born in the depths of Tacoma, Washington (not Seattle) bassist Brian Cook, drummer Tim Latona, vocalist Dave Verellen, and guitarist Dave Knudson brought a ferocious sound that was both pummeling to the chest, and creative to that ol' medulla oblongata.
