Recommend me some new (not "nu") metal music
Aug 19, 2014 - 3:27 AM - by Taustin Powers
Taustin Powers's Avatar I'm in the mood for some new grooving heavy stuff. Problem is, I seem to have reached that age where I only buy cd's from bands that have been around 20+ years now. The last two metal albums I bought that I really dug were "The Blackening" by Machine Head and "Cold Day Memory" by Sevendust.

Some favorite metal albums are Pantera's "Vulgar Display..." and "Far Beyond Driven", most of Machine Head's stuff, Anthrax's "Sound of White Noise" and "We've Come for you all", most of Sevendust's stuff, some Slipknot tracks...

What are some younger/newer bands I should check out? I heard some stuff by Perephery which sounds pretty good, but maybe a little too "polished". I don't like dramatic/theatrical vocals. I like a nice groove to it, and a certain brutal/gritty feel.

Any suggestions?

Ebassist NFL/American Football Thread

King Kashue's Avatar Let's get this started on a 'realistic appraisal of where the NFL's priorities are' note:

The National Football League has decided that smoking pot is 8 times worse than beating a woman unconscious and dragging her through a public place (on video).

The NFL - "We could give a shit about 45% of our fanbase, I mean, they probably deserved it, mirite?"

bassment zombie's Avatar Creed's Scott Stapp Reveals He's Homeless in Jarring New Video

Creed's Scott Stapp has apparently fallen on some hard times. Fifteen years after the band's Human Clay sold over 11 million copies, the lead singer now finds himself "penniless" and reduced to living in a Holiday Inn, Stapp says in a jarring 15-minute video that he posted on his Facebook page (via TMZ).

Stapp opens his testimonial by assuring fans that he's not under the influence. "I'm sure you've heard the many rumors and slanderous, libelous accusations over the last few weeks," Stapp says. "First, I was dead. That came out obviously that it was a hoax. Then there were rumors that I'm on drugs and drinking and relapsed and in rehab, all these other things. That's also a lie…I'm sober as can be.

"About eight weeks ago, I began an audit of not only my record company but my personal finances," Stapp says. "During the course of that audit, a lot of things were uncovered. A lot of money was stolen from me, or royalties not paid, and that's when all hell began to break loose."

From there, Stapp launches into his tragic tale: Unnamed people have cleaned him out and left him penniless. Stapp, now homeless, says he is filming the video from the Holiday Inn where he is now staying, but prior to that, he was forced to live in his truck without money for gas or food. At one point, according to the "Higher" singer, he was taken to the hospital for an unspecified reason.
Terrible luck, right?

Stapp's video comes just days after his wife Jaclyn, a former Miss New York USA, filed for divorce from the Creed singer, the Miami Herald writes. In the divorce petition, Jaclyn Stapp alleges that her husband disappeared from their Boca Raton, Florida home in early October and she and their three children haven't seen him since. The petition also claims that Scott Stapp is "doing so much amphetamines, crystal meth and steroids that he has become a paranoid shell who has threatened to kill himself and harm his family."

TMZ claims that the divorce document contains dozens of text messages from Stapp to his wife, including, "I wouldn’t doubt it if the CIA is behind Alcoholics Anonymous" and "God is also telling me something about Palm Springs and Nashville so there’s a connection somehow. He’s also telling me DEA for some reason."
