David Bowie, the legendary singer-songwriter and actor, has died after a long battle with cancer at the age of 69.

David Bowie's Death , a 'Work of Art,' says Tony Visconti. The artist's Facebook page announced the news, with the singer's rep confirming his death with the following statement:
 "David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18-month battle with cancer," the statement read. "While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family's privacy during their time of grief."

One of the most original and singular voices in rock & roll for nearly five decades, Bowie championed mystery, rebellion and curiosity in his music. Ever unpredictable, the mercurial artist and fashion icon wore many guises throughout his life. Beginning life as a dissident folk-rock spaceman, he would become an androgynous, orange-haired, glam-rock alien (Ziggy Stardust), a well-dressed, blue-eyed funk maestro (the Thin White Duke), a drug-loving art rocker (the Berlin albums), a new-wave hit-maker, a hard rocker, a techno enthusiast and a jazz impressionist. His flair for theatricality won him a legion of fans.

Los Angeles based extreme metal act, ABYSMAL DAWN, will take part in what must be the most bludgeoning death metal lineup fans will see all year in 2016! ABYSMAL DAWN will support the legendary CANNIBAL CORPSE, OBITUARY and CRYPTOPSY on a tour that will tear across the North American continent starting on February 12th.

ABYSMAL DAWN recently started a crowdfunding campaign to help offset some of the startup cost of this tour, including some rather extensive repair work to their van.
Comments the band:

"Dear friends, fans and fellow sick and twisted individuals. We're in desperate need of van repairs for our upcoming tour with CANNIBAL CORPSE, OBITUARY, and CRYPTOPSY and need your help! Please check out our crowdfunding campaign with special perks for those that contribute. We've avoided this type of thing for a long time, but this time we could genuinely use your help. We aren't looking for handouts or to take advantage of our fans, we're just looking for enough to cover our expenses. We appreciate your support and hopefully we can give something back to you that you feel is worthwhile. Please share and hope to see you all on tour soon!"

ABYSMAL DAWN released their new album Obsolescence in late 2014 via Relapse Records. Met with critical acclaim and some of the band's best reviews yet, Obsolescence is a veritable beast of a record and the perfect example of what 21st century death metal should sound like.

ABYSMAL DAWN strikes the perfect balance between extreme songwriting and exceptional skill with an infectious blend of technical yet memorable riffs, throat shredding vocals, and crushing rhythms delivered with machine gun precision.

About Multiple Sclerosis
Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with MS, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system.
MS interrupts the flow of information from the brain to the body and stops people from moving.
Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis.  The advancement, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.
Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with more than twice as many women as men being diagnosed with the disease.
MS affects more than 400,000 people in the U.S. and 2.1 million worldwide.

Upholding a three-decade tradition of breaking ground, creating trends, and forever changing the face of rock ‘n’ roll, Guns N’ Roses announce the most significant and anxiously awaited musical event of this century. Founder Axl Rose and former members Slash and Duff McKagan will regroup to headline the Coachella Music & Arts Festival (April 15-17 & April 22-24)—as announced last night!

For months, critics and audiences alike have generated immense excitement and speculation over the possible regrouping of the iconic line-up. The April performances will mark the first time since 1993 the Gunners will share the stage for what is certain to be an explosive event. For more information please visit www.gunsnroses.com.

Following the group’s 1985 formation, Guns N’ Roses injected unbridled, unrivaled, and unstoppable attitude into the burgeoning Los Angeles rock scene. The spirit went on to captivate the entire world with the release of their 1987 debut Appetite for Destruction –the best-selling U.S. debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally. In 1991, the seven-time platinum Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II occupied the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Over the course of the past decade, Guns N’ Roses have performed sold out shows and headlined festivals worldwide following the critically acclaimed release of 2008’s RIAA platinum-certified Chinese Democracy. Six studio albums later, Guns N’ Roses are one of the most important and influential acts in music history and continue to set the benchmark for live performances connecting with millions of fans across the globe.

Iconic, veteran rockers MÖTLEY CRÜE will play their final two shows of their thirty-four-year-long-career tonight and tomorrow at Staples Center in their hometown of Los Angeles. To celebrate their mark in rock music's history and in honor of their devoted fans, the band has announced a full-length concert film of the final performance, which will also include exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes footage of the last week of the tour, to be released in 2016.

Fans alike will be able to enjoy and/or relive the spectacular and cutting-edge production elements of "The Final Tour", such as Tommy Lee's "Crüecifly" drum roller coaster, Nikki Sixx's fire-spitting bass performance, along with all the fan-favorite hits.

It is with a heavy heart for both MetalTitans, but also the metal and rock community, that we announce the passing of a man who was both legend, yet known for his sense of humour and so much more. "Born to Lose, Lived to Win." Lemmy, we all shall miss you deeply, our condolences go out to his family, friends, and bandmates during this difficult time. The following statement was released on the official Motorhead Facebook page earlier today:

"There is no easy way to say this…our mighty, noble friend Lemmy passed away today after a short battle with an extremely aggressive cancer. He had learnt of the disease on December 26th, and was at home, sitting in front of his favorite video game from The Rainbow which had recently made it’s way down the street, with his family.

We cannot begin to express our shock and sadness, there aren’t words. We will say more in the coming days, but for now, please…play Motörhead loud, play Hawkwind loud, play Lemmy’s music LOUD.
Have a drink or few.

Share stories.

 Celebrate the LIFE this lovely, wonderful man celebrated so vibrantly himself.


 Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister

 1945 -2015

 Born to lose, lived to win.

 Please feel free to post your condolences, well wishes and memories here:"

Los Angeles glam-metal jokesters STEEL PANTHER will release a new acoustic album in February. The effort was recorded this past October at Swing House Rehearsal & Recording in Atwater Village, California.
STEEL PANTHER singer Michael Starr told "Another FN Podcast With Izzy Presley" about the forthcoming unplugged record: "It's gonna be accompanied with a DVD as well. We're gonna debut a few new tunes on this actual unplugged, and we're not gonna put out the new songs recorded [on a proper studio album]… We're gonna actually record them live and release 'em."

Although the STEEL PANTHER acoustic album already has a title, Starr declined to reveal it during an interview with South Detroit SoundHouse. He said (see video below): "The title is really cool. We fought tooth and nail with the record label regarding the title, 'cause they wanted us to change it. And I said, 'No. I ain't changing nothing.' And we didn't. So you're gonna love the title. It's fucking sexy."
STEEL PANTHER is performing shows in Las Vegas for three nights in January. They will perform at the House Of Blues on January 8, January 15 and January 22.

Since their critically acclaimed debut offering "Under Reprisal" (2006), which won the Canadian Recording Of The Year Award at the Hamilton Music Awards, THREAT SIGNAL became internationally recognised as one of the best modern acts in thrash metal. Their latest two installments, the intense "Vigilance" (2009) and reinvented "Threat Signal" (2011), have both met with unrelenting hype, with each entering the Billboard's Top Heatseekers Chart, at #32 and #26.

THREAT SIGNAL came to life in 2003 and immediately began generating growing interest within the metal community. Their debut song "Rational Eyes" hit #1 on the international music website GarageBand.com and maintained that position for over two years. As a result, the young band signed to Nuclear Blast and started intensive touring, having performed with act's such as Children Of Bodom, Soilwork, Motorhead, Saxon, Opeth, Kataklysm, Hatebreed, Epica and Arch Enemy.

THREAT SIGNAL combines the complexity of thrash metal, with a more contemporary groove sound involving technical rhythms, and melodic musical passages. The band is led by frontman Jon Howard, who commented on the signing:

"We are very excited to have inked a deal with Agonia records. We strongly believe that Agonia will be a great partnership, and together we will push Threat Signal's music to more listeners than ever before. Our new album 'Disconnect' in my opinion is the strongest album we've recorded to date. Thank you Agonia for making this happen for us, and we look forward to the road ahead!".

More details on the band's new album will be revealed soon
