Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada metallers 3 INCHES OF BLOOD will enter the studio later this week to record a cover of a DAYGLO ABORTIONS track, to be included on the upcoming DAYGLO ABORTIONS tribute album, due out in 2013. The song will be recorded with Reversed Records founder, producer/engineer/manager Rob Shallcross (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, GWAR, Gene Hoglan, MELDRUM, WEST OF HELL).

3 INCHES OF BLOOD's "Leather Lord" video can be seen below. The song comes off the band's latest album, "Long Live Heavy Metal", which was released on March 27 via Century Media Records.

For "Long Live Heavy Metal", 3 INCHES OF BLOOD reunited with producer and engineer Terry "Sho" Murray (CITY OF FIRE, EXHIBITIONISTS), who worked with the band on their seven-inch single, "Anthems For The Victorious".

3 INCHES OF BLOOD teamed up with Kim Thiessen to perfect their artistic vision for the album, which was released as a digipack and when opened, lays out similar to that of a book.

3 INCHES OF BLOOD recently recruited Byron Stroud (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, FEAR FACTORY) as its new bassist.

In a recent interview with Georgia Straight, ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian was asked which of his cohorts in the "Big Four" of 1980s thrash metal - METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH and ANTHRAX - he most enjoyed listening to in his spare time.

"Oh wow, that's tough," replied Ian. "I would have to say, if you went into my iTunes and you looked at the play count to see what songs I listen to the most, I would probably bet SLAYER gets played more than METALLICA or MEGADETH. So, if that answers your question..."

Asked whether he thought "Big Four" should have been expanded and considered the "Big Five", including one more band, Ian said, "The only other band really that it would make sense [to include] as far as American thrash-metal would be EXODUS, because they were there right at the beginning as well. Their first album came out right at the same time as the rest of us. So I mean, to me, yes - if you were gonna add a fifth band, certainly I would think EXODUS would be able to fill that slot very easily."

Last year, METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH and ANTHRAX were presented with double-platinum plaques for the two-disc DVD release of "The Big Four: Live From Sofia, Bulgaria", containing footage of the June 22, 2010 Sonisphere cinecast from the Sofia, Bulgaria leg of the touring rock festival featuring all four groups. The presentation took place on April 23, 2010 at the first-ever "Big Four" concert on American soil at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.

"The Big Four: Live From Sofia, Bulgaria" was certified double platinum on December 17, 2010 by the Recording Industry Association Of America (RIAA) for shipments in excess of 100,000 copies. (Note: Due to the fact that the set consists of two discs, it was eligible for platinum certification after shipping 50,000 copies; platinum certification for a single-disc release is 100,000 copies.)

Duff McKagan (DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED, VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES) will celebrate the paperback release of his critically acclaimed memoir, "It's So Easy (And Other Lies)", on Monday, October 15 at the Viper Room in West Hollywood, California. Billed as "A Punk's Revue", the event will feature a multi-media exploration of Duff's career in music, words, video, and sound. Musicians Mike Squires, Jeff Rouse and Burke Thomas will accompany McKagan through this spoken-word performance.

DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED will perform a full set on Tuesday, October 16 at the Viper Room.

As previously reported, McKagan will take part in "Rock Stars Say The Funniest Things", a new series of spoken-word sets taking place at Garage in London, England.

Duff will take to the stage on Tuesday, October 25 for "It's So Easy: A Punk's Review", featuring anecdotes and passages from "It's So Easy (And Other Lies)". As well as sharing memories from his musical journey, he will be playing some acoustic tracks and letting the audience delve deeper into this life with a question-and-answer session.

"It's So Easy (And Other Lies)" is a raw, utterly candid autobiography that chronicles the unlikely story of the formation and rise of GUNS N' ROSES to the pinnacle of fame, fortune, and excess. With great candor, charm, and introspection, Duff details his twelve years as the bass player for GN'R as well as his nearly fatal struggle with alcoholism and drug addiction, his unusual path to sobriety, and his success as a savvy business investor and loving husband and father.

"It's So Easy (And Other Lies)" landed at position No. 17 on the New York Times "Hardcover Nonfiction" best-sellers list. The book arrived on October 4, 2011 via Touchstone Books (formerly Touchstone Fireside), a division of Simon & Schuster.

The first 20 pages of "It's So Easy (And Other Lies)" can be read at this location.

Duff's VELVET REVOLVER/GUNS N' ROSES bandmate Slash has published his own book, as has ex-GUNS drummer Steven Adler, who released his life story, "My Appetite For Destruction: Sex And Drugs And Guns N' Roses", in July 2010.

Video footage of drummer Mike Portnoy (ADRENALINE MOB, FLYING COLORS, DREAM THEATER, AVENGED SEVENFOLD) performing the ADRENALINE MOB song "Indifferent" can be seen below.

ADRENALINE MOB features in its ranks Portnoy bassist John Moyer (also of DISTURBED), vocalist Russell Allen (SYMPHONY X) and guitarist Mike Orlando (SONIC STOMP, TRED).

ADRENALINE MOB's "Indifferent" video was filmed in March in the desert in California and throughout Los Angeles with director Scott Hansen, who has previously worked with A DAY TO REMEMBER, UNEARTH and WILLIE NELSON, among others.

"Indifferent" comes off ADRENALINE MOB's debut album, "OmertŠ", which sold around 6,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 70 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released in Europe on March 19 in Europe via Century Media Records and in the U.S. on March 13 through the newly formed Elm City Music in conjunction with EMI Label Services.

The 11-song effort - which was produced by ADRENALINE MOB and mixed by Jay Ruston, who has previously worked on ANTHRAX's "Worship Music" and STEEL PANTHER's "Balls Out" - includes a blistering reinterpretation of DURAN DURAN's classic "Come Undone" featuring guest vocals by Lzzy Hale of HALESTORM.

According to, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS took to the stage two hours after the opening band last night (Monday, September 18) in Abbotsford, British Columbia , Canada.

CRASH KINGS opened the concert, playing for just under an hour to an estimated 3,000 fans who waited for much anticipation for the main act.

By the time 10:30 rolled around, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS still hadn't kicked off their show, and many people had reportedly already left the building. The remaining fans started getting restless and the arena erupted many times with booing.

Just past 11 p.m. STONE TEMPLE PILOTS finally came on stage, greeted by boos. Lead singer Scott Weiland offered a brief apology, but otherwise offered no explanation for the band's tardiness.

According to an unconfirmed report on, Weiland and STONE TEMPLE PILOTS guitarist Dean DeLeo were spotted playing paintball at Richmond Indoor Paintball yesterday afternoon.

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS' show scheduled for tonight (September 18) in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada has been canceled.

**UPDATE**: According to a statement posted on STONE TEMPLE PILOTS' Facebook page, tonight's concert at the Emax Centre in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada was called off because Weiland has been put on 48 hours complete vocal rest due to strained vocal cords. The cancelation of the Lethbridge show "will allow STP to finish the remaining dates of their summer 2012 tour," the statement adds.

The band's next scheduled concert is September 22 in Irvine, California.

ICED EARTH guitarist/mainman Jon Schaffer has commented on the lawsuits filed on behalf of Century Media Records that collectively target more than 7,000 people for allegedly using peer-to-peer networks to unlawfully distribute "Dystopia", the 2011 album by ICED EARTH, and "Dark Adrenaline", the most recent album by the Italian band LACUNA COIL.

Said Schaffer: "It has come to my attention that Century Media is suing fans over illegal downloads of (among others) our latest album, 'Dystopia'. I felt it was important to clarify that we had no knowledge of this motion and were, sadly, not asked permission.

"We all know the music industry is changing. We have been adapting to this model by embracing legal streaming services such as Spotify and by bringing our music to places we have never played before by touring our proverbial asses off.

"As much as we respect that the labels are having a harder time selling music, we feel this is a misguided effort and want to make sure our fans know we would have not given our consent would we have been asked."

In a typical illegal-downloading case, a lawyer hires a company to search for Internet protocol (IP) addresses associated with the use of file-sharing software such as BitTorrent. Once the IP addresses have been harvested, the lawyer's clients file suit naming defendants as John Doe. They then seek to have mass subpoenas issued for the Internet providers associated with the harvested IP addresses in order to obtain the name and address of the owner of the IP address on the date it was harvested. Once identified, an Internet account holder typically faces the prospect of settling the case for a few thousand dollars or hiring a lawyer to fight the charges.

"It's tough. If you get one of these letters you've been put in a difficult and unfair spot," said Rebecca Jeschke, a spokeswoman for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a San Francisco-based civil-liberties group, referring to the notices that go out once a John Doe has been identified.

"In many of these situations," she added to, "the goal doesn't seem to be to fight infringement; it seems to be to get settlements. That's where the money-making is."

Nuclear Blast Records made headlines earlier in the year when it filed a lawsuit against 80 users of the BitTorrent network over illegal music downloads of an album by Oakland, California-based extreme metallers ALL SHALL PERISH. The lawsuit was not only brought without the band's permission, but also without their knowledge.

After members of ALL SHALL PERISH made it clear that they did not want to participate in the legal proceedings, Nuclear Blast voluntarily dismissed the lawsuit without prejudice.

In December 2008, the Recording Industry Association Of America (RIAA) abandoned its litigation campaign against file sharers after having targeted some 18,000 individuals, usually naming dozens or hundreds of defendants per suit.

Most of the defendants settled out of court for a few thousand dollars rather than risk Copyright Act fines of up to $150,000 per purloined music track.
