Wolf Down break up amidst controversy 7 replies

Straight-edge vegan hardcore group Wolf Down have recently come under controversy when guitarist Tobi has been accused of rape and sexual abuse from two women he previously dated.

New Osiris (Egypt) song, EP 2 replies

Long-defunct Egyptian metal band Osiris haveposted their first new song in 20 years. The gloriously bombastic track "Forgotten Stones of Time" can be heard below.

According to the Bandcamp, the song is a single from a forthcoming EP, drawing a parallel from slaves that built the ancient pyramids to modern-day workers being crippled by debt:

This track is about slavery in ancient Egypt and their denial to time.

Slaves are forgotten.

Their existence is lost within time and their names erased for eternity. Although the slaves did the hard labor to build the monuments that glorified once a leading civilization, nobody remembers the prisoners of war, the locals in debt or the criminals deemed to a lifetime of atonement, who were made into slaves.

Dear Chester,

Our hearts are broken. The shockwaves of grief and denial are still sweeping through our family as we come to grips with what has happened.

You touched so many lives, maybe even more than you realized. In the past few days, we’ve seen an outpouring of love and support, both public and private, from around the world. Talinda and the family appreciate it, and want the world to know that you were the best husband, son, and father; the family will never be whole without you.

Talking with you about the years ahead together, your excitement was infectious. Your absence leaves a void that can never be filled—a boisterous, funny, ambitious, creative, kind, generous voice in the room is missing. We’re trying to remi ...more
