COLUMNS: Debut Music Video for “Punching Nancy Grace”

North Carolina’s sick and twisted death/grinders COLUMNS have revealed a music video for their misanthropic anthem “Punching Nancy Grace”.

The album will be officially released in North America tomorrow via Relapse Records and was described by Metal Sucks as “carnage wrapped in chaos wrapped in torment wrapped in more carnage” and “Fuckin’ great!”

Frontman Adam Cody commented on the inspiration behind the song:“Nancy Grace holds one of the lowest positions in life. She covers the gossip of high profile court cases. Imagining her getting a hard jab to the face brings me great happiness.”

And added:

“Nancy Grace makes a living shitting out of her mouth. Columns as a whole would like to see her get punched.”

Featuring former members of cult Relapse grinders Hemdale plus current and former members of renowned death metal bands Wretched, Vehemence and Glass Casket.COLUMNS blast and shred their way through 16 tracks of premium Southern grindcore, marinated in a blistering bowl of death metal. A complete tracklisting ofPlease Explode is available below.

Suicide Silence Premiere “You Can’t Stop Me” Music Video

Suicide Silence‘s “You Can’t Stop Me” premiered online late tonight. The song features the final vocals written by the bands late frontman Mitch Lucker. Nathan Cox (Linkin Park, Marilyn Manson) directed the clip, which features an impressive surprise ending. “You Can’t Stop Me” is also the title track to the bands new album, in stores July 15th.


(NEW YORK, NY) – Multi-platinum selling rock act TESLA have debuted an all new video for their latest single “So Divine…

TESLA released an all new LP titled SIMPLICITY on June 10th, 2014 via Tesla Electric Company Recording’s arrangement with Entertainment One Music and Distribution.

Simplicity has seen quite the onslaught of critical praise, “Tesla do what Aerosmith used to be king at and fail to do now: produce perfectly biting, raucous hard rock,” says Goldmine Magazine and Blabbermouth states: “TESLA 2014 admirably sounds like themselves a quarter of a century ago and that’s remarkable. Moreover, they sound better in this cruder, more untreated state.”

SIMPLICITY is the band’s seventh studio full length LP and fifteenth release overall. The new effort is the followup to FOREVER MORE, which was released in October 2008 and featured the single “I Wanna Live.”

TESLA locked themselves away for weeks writing the new material that would become SIMPLICITY with long time A&R man Tom Zutaut. Fourteen solid tracks later the band sank their teeth in while recording began at bassist Brian Wheat’s very own J Street Recorders. Legendary engineer Michael Wagener (Metallica, Skid Row, Motley Crue) was then tapped to put the final touches in place.


Fresh off the MONSTERS OF ROCK CRUISE, the band has quite the itinerary of tour dates throughout the rest of 2014. Click here for all tour dates.


Formed in 1981, TESLA have firmly carved out their own space in rock and roll history. The band saw great success with their own rendition of the 1971 classic “Signs” and their own hit single “Love Song” from the The Great Radio Controversy, released in 1989.


TESLA is: Frank Hannon – Brian Wheat – Jeff Keith – Troy Luccketta – Dave Rude
