Rocker Struck By Lightning
Abrasive Rock reports: After conquering over 40 cities and towns in as many days, Thor The Mighty Rock Warrior was struck down by an unimaginably powerful bolt of lightning!

He managed to finish the show, but immediately afterwards was rushed into the care of Venus (nurse to the Gods). Due to these unforseen circumstances Thor was forced to cancel the remaining dates on the tour. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Roadrunner Soup Kitchen
Blabbermouth reports: Blistering.com recently conducted an interview with LIFE OF AGONY frontman Keith Caputo. An excerpt from the chat follows: 

Blistering.com: So then you went and recorded a solo record, "Died Laughing", which is one of the most beautiful records that I've heard in my life. You have so many great songs on that record.

Keith: "What a gorgeous record and Roadrunner f***ed that up too."

Blistering.com: That's what my next question was going to be. It wasn't released here, what was that like as an artist?

Keith: "Oh, it destroyed me! It destroyed me. I thought I'd delivered Roadrunner the greatest record musically that they'd ever had in their entire glossary of bands. I gave them a record that they could not handle. It just goes to show you that their staff was not strong enough to really work this. After working with Epic Records and realizing how serious these people take their jobs and their titles, Roadrunner is a f***ing soup kitchen compared to Epic. It's f***ing ridiculous what they did to me. I moved to Europe for that f***ing label! I was still robbed and taken advantage of and… f***ing whatever."
