...this gives a new meaning to the term, "Heavy Metal Babies". Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star, the company which creates "beautiful lullaby versions of your favorite artists," has just released "Lullaby Versions Of Iron Maiden" via iTunes. The 12-track set features reworkings of metal classics such as "Run To The Hills", "The Trooper" and "Fear Of The Dark". In its mission statement, Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star says, "We feel our lullaby line fills a vacant musical niche. There are other lines of pop music lullabies but we decided to take the approach of being high end musically rather than simply doing these as a novelty. After all, just because the music is for a baby it doesn’t have to sound unsophisticated. We feel we owe it to the artists that we are covering to do their music justice and our standard of quality transcends the lullaby genre. In fact, in addition to soothing babies our fans use our music for yoga, massage and sleep therapy or just general relaxation. We like to call them 'lullabies for all ages' and the diversity of use is testament to that." "Lullaby Versions Of Iron Maiden" track listing: 01. Run To The Hills 02. The Number Of The Beast 03. The Trooper 04. Hallowed Be Thy Name 05. Aces High 06. Fear Of The Dark 07. Wasted Years 08. Can I Play With Madness 09. Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son 10.

...YOUTUBE TIME. VAN CANTO has posted a video clip for the song "The Seller of Souls." The track is taken off the "Break the Silence" album through Napalm Records. VAN CANTO is an a cappella metal band from Germany, founded in 2006 and composed of five singers and a drummer. Although the group is often classified as an a cappella ensemble, they use real drums in their music, instead of vocal percussion or beatboxing. VAN CANTO fuses a cappella with heavy/power metal, creating what they call "hero metal a capella". While only two of the five singers perform the lead vocals, the other three will instead use their voices to imitate the guitars and the bass, with the help of amplifiers, in an attempt to sound closer to the original instruments.

...ROB ZOMBIE gets all soft and cuddly!?!? The ZOMBIE has directed a WOOLITE Commercial. Although Rob Zombie is most known for his horror film making, he even directed a CSI: Miami episode, maybe you didn't know that, but some critics think that he has "sold out," "I hadn't even thought about [a fan backlash], it hadn't crossed my mind. "Whenever anyone talks about selling out it's the most absurd statement anyone could make. I've never done anything I didn't want to do, to me selling out is changing your music, your image, everything based on some sort of corporate manipulation to become rich and famous. I've never done that. "When someone says I've sold out I say, 'What do you do for a living?' and maybe they'll say, 'Oh, I work at Walmart.' So they're corporate whores for the largest corporation in the world but have the nerve to [call me a] 'sell-out?"' The guy is talented in front of the camera and behind it, the phrase "sell out" comes from the lips of haters but "SOLD OUT" will be seen on the marque of his show...

This will have memorabilia and artwork, and is being designed to look like Hell House, the shack in Jacksonville where the band came up with their sound in the late 1960s. Skynyrd will also play there several times each year. Frontman Johnny Van Zant told Billboard: “It’s been in the works for about a year now, and they just broke ground about a month ago. It’s kind of between the Luxor and Excalibur, so it’s right here on the strip in a pretty good spot. We hope that when bands come through they’ll go and visit and it’ll be a place to hang out. It should be a cool thing.” Find out more at http://www.lynyrdskynyrd.com/

His life, his memory, and his love will live on in that story and in our band."...

We have received a very good response both in sales and in reviews for the album. "We are sorry for the lack of news but we have had a good reason for the silence. We have been waiting for our friend Uli to get better with his hand [after suffering from nerve damage]. We knew we took a risk in waiting, but we considered it best for the band. This is why there has not been any shows so far apart from Helsinki Metal Meeting in February. "A few weeks ago, we received more news from Uli's doctors and they were very bad. They said that it is not likely that he could play drums this year at all. After talking with Uli and in mutual understanding, we agreed to continue SYMFONIA without him. It is a painful decision for all of us, but after Uli told us it is best for us to go on without him and not to wait anymore due to uncertain future with his hand, we decided to do this. And the truth is, we simply cannot wait any longer."...

"Whenever the drummer started his drum solo, I wondered why people would leave to go get a beer, buy a t-shirt, restroom, whatever!! I wanted to show people what happens behind the drumset, so I decided to expose it all by flipping the drums vertical, upside-down, making them disappear and fly over the audiences heads! MÖTLEY CRÜE brings you on a thrill ride, jump on the 360! Let's do this! By the way, it's really f**king difficult playing while on this ride!"...

However, the new release will be for sure a progression from the songwriting and sound production points of view. Some of the songwriting is already done, but we still have work to do! The new material so far is fucking brutal, combining shredding rhythms, mosh grooves and grindcore blast attacks! We sure give 100% in the songwriting process and we cannot wait to enjoy with everyone the new overdose of brutal distorted structures! Be prepared!! As our goal is to enter the studio earliest in autumn 2011, we are very focused on our work and will play just a few live shows this summer/fall. Nevertheless, we really look forward to grind with you at our upcoming shows!"...

Dupree has just introduced his new beer, America's Outlaw, into the Wisconsin marketplace after healthy launches in Kansas, Missouri, and South Dakota. The crisp, refreshing, unfiltered wheat beer has been so popular that keeping it stocked and supplied has been the rocker's major challenge so far. "We brew it in St. Joe, Missouri, where the original Outlaw Jesse James was from," Dupree told Noisecreep. "I spent a lot of time working with the brew to get it just right. It's the best beer to eat with steaks!" The recipe calls for 40% malted wheat combined with a blend of Pale, Caramel, and Munich malts, while Willamette, Fuggles, and Cascade hops deliver the perfect balance. JACKYL will also be on tour through September 10. Dates can be found at http://www.roughtour.com/

...RUSH bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee recently spoke about the progress of the songwriting sessions for the band's upcoming 20th studio album, "Clockwork Angels", for which a release date has not yet been set. "We've got about seven songs written," Lee said. He added, "When you hear the first two songs ['BU2B' and 'Caravan'], which we're playing live now, they definitely have a heavier sound. It's the heavier side of RUSH in the early going. But when I think of all the songs that we've written already, there's quite a lot of diversity there. I think — I hope — RUSH fans will like it. We're certainly going to work hard to make it a great record, as we always try."...

...Former MEGADETH guitarist Marty Friedman is auctioning a Jackson guitar he used in the studio and on the road with the band in the late 1980s and early 1990s, with all proceeds going to the Jason Becker Special Needs Trust and ALS Therapy Development Institute. Friedman: "This guitar was the first Jackson I ever owned. It was the first really good guitar I ever had. I bought it in Hawaii while I was in the band HAWAII. It was tiger-striped black and white at the time. I did several HAWAII recordings and concerts with it. At one time it had a flamethrower on the headstock. I recorded most of CACOPHONY's 'Speed Metal Symphony' [1987] with this guitar if not the entire album, as I don't remember playing any other guitar while recording that album. I did ALL of 'Dragon's Kiss' [Friedman's 1988 solo album] with this guitar. When I joined MEGADETH, I had it painted black and recorded 'Rust in Peace' [1990] with it. On 'Rust In Peace' I used only two guitars, this one and one other Jackson. I also used this to record 'Countdown To Extinction'. This was my #2 touring guitar for most of my MEGADETH years, so in MEGADETH alone this axe must have at least 1000 shows under its belt. The guitar has been maintained by the top luthiers in the world. When I quit MEGADETH, I retired this guitar so it has been in its case in a climate-controlled lockup since then. I look forward to the new history you will create with this cool guitar."...

Guess it's time to put it out there properly. I'll also be releasing a five-six song EP on my new website, JaniLane.net. This is, in my humble opinion, some of the best songs I've ever written (I'm not the only one who has said this)! I'm planning a RADIOHEAD-type experiment where I will make the entire download free, give you a chance to check it out and several ways to kick me back what you think it's worth... or tell me it sucks and to go back to the drawing board! Hope you all have a great spring break and see you this summer!!"...

He had, in turn, been thinking about leaving, so you could say it was a mutual decision. There’s no bad blood, just a relationship that came to an end, and that’s that. We wish Per the best, and he did a splendid job recording keyboards for the last record, which stands as his final recording with Opeth."...

Personally, I wish we would have been back at full force long time ago, but for obvious reasons, we don't want to make any sudden decisions here, which I'm sure you all understand! Obviously, we could have chosen the quick and easy way, brought in some great and talented session musicians, and just kept on touring, but because we want to build a new, much stronger and sustainable lineup, that was an option was ruled out immediately. Anyway, I just wanted to give a quick sign of life and let you know that things are moving along just fine. And as long as things continue to go according to our master plan, we should be back at full force before the summer. However, I'd like to point out that we haven't made any final decisions or hired anyone yet, but it shouldn't take much too long until we do"...

We both realized that we want to be together in a band again. He was interested in the open musical concept of Unisonic and finally asked me if he could join the band. I talked to my bandmates and they all felt great about it.

Bottom line, I wish them the best with the film and I’m sure it will still be great.

During this time we have gone through many changes and we have been thinking about the future of the band. Unfortunately, we feel that the challenges as a band would be too hard to overcome. After long conversations we have decided that the story of MACHINE MEN ends here. It's better to end what we started together without bitterness than to make a new album we couldn't put our hearts and souls into. We wouldn't be the five guys that stuck together no matter what. We would be something else, not MACHINE MEN. This band has been the centre of our lives for over a decade. During these years we have experienced great and unforgettable moments on the road (and off). The thanks goes to all the people who have supported us and have come to see our gigs. It hasn't been an easy ride but yet we have taken all the shit with our heads held high. After all, we are from Suolahti, for fuck's sake! Even though it's sad, we end this with smiles on our faces and with loads of good memories to share over a pint. The story of the band ends here but we'll continue to make music as individuals. We are grateful to so many people but most of all we would like to thank our fans - without you we would have been nothing!"...

...Progressive metallers OCEANS OF SADNESS have announced plans to disband after 16 years. The band's official statement reads as follows: "First of all we want to thank all of you for supporting OCEANS OF SADNESS during these last 15 years. Thanks to you we had the chance to do a lot of cool things, much more than we ever dreamed of 15 years ago. During these 15 years we've never really tried to be part of any particular scene music-wise and our image has always been the last thing we cared about. Creating our own sound and writing original and inspiring metal has always been our only real goal and we are proud of the road we travelled during the 5 albums we recorded, with 'The Arrogance Of Ignorance' being the last one, released in 2008 on Scarlet Records. We are really proud of all our music and we ourselves have always believed that we kept getting better and better at what we wanted to do. But now we feel that our story may have been told ... Theoretically we could easily go on for another 15 years ... but we won't. We feel time has come for us to relax for a while and who knows what happens in the future... I'm pretty sure all of us will continue making music, maybe together, maybe separately, but more important is that we all have the feeling we can now close this chapter of our lives with pride and dignity. We're not the kind of guys to close a door and throw away the key forever, not at all... however, we don't have the intention to come back in this shape in a few years either... Music is about creativity and challenging yourself and right now we feel we got stuck in some sort of routine for quite a while now... We lack the energy to record yet another album, again negotiating with labels, just to end up with another deal that only costs us a lot of money, followed by a few shows... We'll see what happens in the future, like with everything in life: nothing is certain. On a positive note: To celebrate the end of OCEANS OF SADNESS in style we decided to leave the scene with a blast and do a special last show. The date and other details will be released when all is certain. Thanks for everything! We hope you will enjoy our music for many years to come!".

...WARBRINGER has made it official: Carlos Cruz (Hexen) is their new drummer. Cruz has pretty much been in the band for some time now, but the band waited to make the announcement out of respect to their old drummer and Carlos' former band mates. Says Cruz: "After years of putting forth nothing but blood, sweat, and tears into my tireless ambitions for playing music, I have finally found an outlet where no more time is wasted. It was flattering to have been approached by Warbringer the first time they made a personnel change in 2008, but this time around it couldn't have felt more like perfect timing, They're a collective group of humble, open-minded, down-to-earth guys who share the same fanaticism for music as I do and are the tightest musicians I have ever played with. I've never felt so welcomed and inspired to move forward. Even past members of the band have congratulated me and it feels very much like family, not just another band. From some recent serious downfalls in my personal life came this beautiful opportunity and I couldn't be happier. We'll be seeing all YOU Warbringers out on the road soon!"...

"We've concluded that it is best for our band to stand out from the pack as much as possible, apart from our music alone. This new name fits our band to the letter because of our extensive history of being a band from an area where there is not much of anything for a music scene and having to travel to build any kind of fanbase, life on the road, all the ups and downs and in betweens of being in a metal band. Also, about a year ago we were fortunate to meet a local fan of our band for many years named Clark Webb, who is now wielding rhythm guitar with us, making our band officially no longer a trio and making us an even more powerful force to be reckoned with in the metal music world." BLESSED CURSE is currently recording its debut album at Trident Studios...

The band released the following statement last week: "The White Stripes would like to announce that today, February 2nd, 2011, their band has officially ended and will make no further new recordings or perform live. The reason is not due to artistic differences or lack of wanting to continue, nor any health issues as both Meg and Jack are feeling fine and in good health. It is for a myriad of reasons, but mostly to preserve what is beautiful and special about the band and have it stay that way. Meg and Jack want to thank every one of their fans and admirers for the incredible support they have given throughout the 13 plus years of the White Stripes? intense and incredible career. Third Man records will continue to put out unreleased live and studio recordings from The White Stripes in their Vault subscription record club, as well as through regular channels. Both Meg and Jack hope this decision isn?'t met with sorrow by their fans but that it is seen as a positive move done out of respect for the art and music that the band has created. It is also done with the utmost respect to those fans who've shared in those creations, with their feelings considered greatly. With that in mind the band have this to say: ?The White Stripes do not belong to Meg and Jack anymore. The White Stripes belong to you now and you can do with it whatever you want. The beauty of art and music is that it can last forever if people want it to. Thank you for sharing this experience. Your involvement will never be lost on us and we are truly grateful"...

The Bay Area band recently issued the following statement:  "After 14 years, eight releases, hundreds of shows, countless miles traveled, and many, many great times and bottles of whiskey, Hostility has decided to disband.
