Gene Simmons has declared that "rock is finally dead." Now that we've got that settled ... what's next?
Rock did not die of old age. It was murdered. Some brilliance, somewhere, was going to be expressed, and now it won’t, because it’s that much harder to earn a living playing and writing songs. No one will pay you to do it.

Sacks says the boys have a chance of becoming the new face of rock because they are unique — black artists excelling in heavy metal, a genre typically dominated by white musicians. The seven-figure Sony contract was submitted for a Manhattan judge’s approval Friday because the musicians are minors.

Nick Hipa, former As I Lay Dying guitarist and current Wovenwar member, has written a post about his thoughts after the Tim Lambesis trial.
Last Friday I sat in a courtroom to support a friend. For the better part of a decade our professional and personal lives were woven in a relationship akin to family. As if family, the intention of my attendance was to publicly acknowledge the deep care and compassion I hold for this individual.

I watched as she searched for the strength to behold her transgressor for the first time in over a year since learning of his plot to have her murdered. I listened to her describe the love she once possessed for this man whom she adored, trusted, and...

Bryan Romero, an AP.net reader, is looking for OC/LA metal drummers to participate in a scientific study for his graduate program.
Hey OC/LA metal drummers! Have you ever wondered how athletic drumming actually is? Well here is your chance! My name is Bryan Romero, and I am a Kinesiology graduate student at CSU Fullerton in Orange county.

This morning an update was posted over at www.asilaydying.com on the current happenings and individual futures of all the bands' members.
