If you didn’t already know, one of the world’s most exciting live acts called it a day recently and that sucks. We love The Chariot and have left countless venues bruised and broken from their mathy chaos, but all good things must end. Have a look at this video from their farewell tour and remind yourself just how fucking sick they were.

We didn’t have a New Tunes Tuesday this week because we were holding off for this rager from post-hardcore newbies ZOAX. We say newbies, the band features original members of Axewound and Rise To Remain, but this outfit is releasing its debut EP XIII on 17 February. Pick it up after listening to Burn It To The Ground a hundred times.
This should always have existed. Wherever the fuck they sell googly eyes, we’re going there now. See loads more at Metal Albums With Googly Eyes.

Just after Lamb Of God finished kicking our arses on their headline tour last week, they’ve gone and announced a film. Originally about the power of music and its impact on cultures across the world, the film suddenly became a different story when frontman Randy Blythe was arrested and charged with manslaughter after an incident at a show in the Czech Republic. As The Palaces Burn tells the story of how one of the world’s biggest and best metal bands faced what would tear other bands apart head on.
The film will be shown at 350 different cinemas across UK and Ireland – find your nearest screening HERE.
Holy fucking shit. After ending their last UK tour with two sold-out headline shows at Brixton Academy, the Steel City noisemongers are coming back to London and headlining the Wembley bloody Arena. This massive for both fans of Bring Me The Horizon and metal fans in general – British metal is stepping it the fuck up with these guys leading the charge. We’ll see you there.
Tickets go on sale 9am Friday HERE.

Never ones to do things normally, Letlive have come up with the clever-ass idea of enlisting some of their favourite vocalists to help out on the tracks for Blackest Beautiful in a series called Renditions. For the first one, Every Time I Die’s Keith Buckley lends his voice to 27 Club and it’s rad as hell. We love Letlive anyway, but now ETID are getting involved we need to sit down.
