It appears Meshuggah's manager has leaked a new song of their album KOLOSS that does not hit stores for another six weeks. At least that is what those in the 'know' seem to be saying. According to a post on got-djent.com it was traced through cryptic online messages to imaleak.com to a soundcloud page, and so on...
Who knows if the band leaked it, or what, no matter how it got out, I was anxious to hear it so here you go!

Metallica have announced today at orionmusicandmore.com the birth of their own music festival, Orion Music and More (as you may have seen in the promo video above). Hand picking 22 artists for two dates, June 23rd and 24th in Atlantic City, NJ.
Apparently they are trying to incorporate several different lifestyle events and musical genres into one fest. So far the line-up is decidedly not metal, at all. The Sword, Avenged Sevenfold and Liturgy are probably the closest, but with Arctic Monkeys, Modest Mouse, The Black Angels, Roky Erikson, and Gary Clark Jr. will make for a more eclectic scene akin to Bonnaroo.
2-day passes are running $125, and front of stage will cost an extra $100, only if you are a Metclub member, and $150 for the rest of the schmucks out there. I have my opinions, but will hold and see how this shakes out in the next few days...

In an expected twist of events, this image popped up at killswitchengage.com With out the formal press release, facebook announce, or twitter comment just yet, it may all be part of the speculation that has been raging since the announced departure of Howard Jones (but probably not).
Leach seems like the most likely choice since the rekindling of the Adam D. flames in Times of Grace, but also thinking about a third vocalist for KSE is almost mind numbing at this point. Probably the wise decision, and he still has got some chops.
New Video for Red Tide Rising the first single off Orange Goblin's new album A Eulogy for the Damned. Not only is the album wicked, the video is kinda sweet so i thought I would put it out here!
