Wolfgang Van Halen has begun recording his second Mammoth WVH album, and he took to social media this week to reflect on how it is a bitter sweet experience as the second anniversary of his father, Eddie Van Halen's, death is today.

I had been practicing drums in the studio when Pop came in, grabbed my bass and started jamming with me. It was so much fun. It's little moments like these I feel I took for granted.

Rollin' Coffin, the new band feature Tim Williams of Vision of Disorder and Bloodsimple fame just released a new single called "Hate Is Real", and to celebrate we asked Tim to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

"Hate Is Real" is a sludgy, grinding song. I really like this song being the first release off of our upcoming EP. When I sit down to write songs, I start by gathering ideas and usually end up in a mellow kind of place. It's just where a lot of my ideas start. "Hate Is Real" was different, because it was written 'heavy' and made it into the EP without going through too many changes. So that's always a cool feeling. (continue)
