A band approached me recently from the Ukraine. They submitted their music and info and ended up hiring Swimming With Sharks Entertainment to release their album.

The first time I was made aware of this outrageous and mysterious character, was in a viral video entitled "Weird gamer guy". The video features E3 corespondent, Tessa Smash, interviewing... "Onyx the Fortuitous". A while later, I noticed another video surfacing, entitled "Weird satanist guy", in which a local news cast covers the story of a satanic statue unveiling, and a few of the attendees are interviewed. There he was again, in all his glory!
This band should be huge. Massive. I can't get enough of this.

Skinny Puppy is considered to be one of the founders of the electro-industrial genre, has inspired and influenced countless thousands, and has reached audiences all over the globe. When I ran across the opportunity to speak with one of the founders of the band, Cevin Key, and pick his brain; I pounced on the opportunity!
If you doze off, you may miss out on the creative process.
The kids pictured above are paying homage to Slipknot, Mushroomhead, Mudvayne, and Motograter. Actually, one of the kids featured above is somewhat of a celebrity in the Mushroomhead world, and has performed with the band several times.
This concert changed my entire life. The first big metal concert I ever went to... Pantera has been my favorite band ever since. Me and my best friend in high school, Brandon, drove 4 hours; from the middle-of-nowhere Texas (Lampasas) to Dallas, Texas to see this show. It was the ONE and ONLY time I got to see Pantera perform live. It was at that moment I realized what I wanted to do with my life.
A while back I discovered a band called ZOMBIESHARK! More than likely the result of another one of my sleepless nights, roaming the depths of the internet... not to mention I love sharks, zombies, and naturally, zombie sharks... so it was only a matter of time before I stumbled upon this project... Anyway, I found this band and just LOVED the name. I thought what they were doing was pretty interesting, even though the quality of their recordings really wasn't all that great. But really, that's pretty common in the Nintendocore scene. Wait? Did I say Nintendocore? Yes, yes I did. If you weren't aware, this is a genre of music... and it's awesome. What is Nintendocore? Well...
Fear Factory has done quite a bit of touring and I’m sure you guys have a lot of stories from the road. Anything crazy that pops out in your mind that you’d like to share with us? Where do I start? (laughs) (thinks for a moment) I could tell you one recently…we were on tour, and this was in Europe. We were in England and we were going down the O-1 Freeway on our way to the Airport to drop off our drummer’s girlfriend. On the way there at like 3 or 4 O’clock in the morning, our bus driver noticed there was a fire, like a little flame, coming out of the left wheel well. He was like “Oh shit!” So he pulled the bus over, jumped out, grabbed the fire extinguisher, went to go extinguish it out, and as he was doing it the fucking extinguisher ran out! There wasn’t enough in there. The flame started getting bigger and bigger, so the guy runs back inside and says “Every body’s gotta get the fuck off the bus! Get the fuck off the bus!” So, we’re all asleep and so we jump up out of the bunks going, you know “Fire! Fire!”. So, everybody starts grabbing their shit off the bus, like all their backpacks and their belongings, and we all run off the bus and we look over and we’re like “Holy fuck!”. The whole side of the bus was on fire! We’re like “Oh man, our gear and our trailer!” So, thank God the crew at the time was really good because they unhooked the trailer, pushed it back, went into the base, grabbed everybody bags, grabbed everybody’s shit and took it a few feet away. We’re all standing in front of the bus and all of the sudden a tire blows. “Boosh!” We’re all like “It’s blowing up! Aah!” We’re running…but it was just a tire that blew because it got too hot. We’re all watching this fucking thing go up in flames, then all of the sudden we’re like “Where’s Zeke?” Our merch guy, he was passed out in his bunk. So two of our crew guys ran back on the bus, pulled him out into the street. He was still in his…you know, those Europeans they wear those tight, white underwear. We almost forgot about him and he would have fucking burned. The whole fucking bus just burned in flames, gone. Everything was gone.
