The moment we’ve all been waiting for is finally here. The most anticipated album of 2013 has dropped and it ain’t who you thought it was cuz that guy released his album last Monday . That’s right, I’m talking about Hannah Montana herself, Miley Cyrus. It’s Bangerz baby! Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last year or so, Ms. Cyrus has been making waves. She’s been criticized for her raunchy videos and a controversial VMA appearance but now she gets to prove whether it was [...]
There’s something both undeniably catchy and, at the same time, dreadfully awful about Korn’s new single ‘Never, Never’ from their forthcoming album The Paradigm Shift, their first since guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch rejoined the band last year. While we still have a couple months before the album drops (October 8th, 2013), this song will be the earworm that will probably stick with you if you’re surfing around Sirius XM.

With a new full-length on the horizon, Welch took the time to respond to some questions from Popblerd via email: 1. How does Love & Death differ [...]
The first (and hopefully only) posthumous project from Amy Winehouse is one of this week’s major new releases.
O.K. – so rewind back to 2008 for a minute. I am in a limo with Raymond Herrera (Fear Factory), Billy Gould (Faith No More), Brooks Wackerman (Bad Religion) and James “Munky” Shaeffer (Korn) and we’re talking about all things music. James is working on his debut solo project and he tells me it’s called Fear and The Nervous System. I am completely stoked to hear how it’s all coming together and up to this point have assisted two of his other [...]
