Sued for Downloading

When oh when will the music industry ever learn its lesson.

Most businesses, over the course of time, have to adapt and change their models so they can continue to make money. Apparently, nobody in the music industry has taken business classes because they are stuck in a time warp that they never seem to bring themselves out of.

World Digital Rights filed a lawsuit in Florida against the 80 IP Addresses of people who illegally downloaded the newest album for All Shall Perish. Now the band, went to their record label, Nuclear Blast, whom also doesnt own the rights to the music, and told them they wanted nothing to do with the prosecution of any of their fans, even if their fans stole from them. Apparently, Nuclear Blast is in the process of notifying World Digital Rights that they wanted the case dissmissed.

There are several issues with this story that kind of bug me. I’ve always been one against prosecution on the basis of pirating. I think companies like RIAA and this World Digital Rights are corporations that were purely invented to rape money not just from broadcasters but from the musicians themselves. I know that the RIAA collects royalties on behalf of musicians/bands even if they are not current members, and they dont have to fork over the money unless the band specifically asks them for it. Not to mention the fees being outrageously jacked up on us legitimate podcasters who use music because we want other people to experience it and not distributing it for gain/stealing it.

These people need to get their act together and maybe make their music more affordable and easier to get so everybody can go home happy.

Velvet Revolver Take 2

Never say never at its best. I learned this phrase while watching pro wrestling and it has never ceased to amaze me. Scott Weiland, Stone Temple Piolots fame, has decided to hang his ego at the front door and do what he does best and rejoined what seems me to be the real Guns and Roses, aka Velvet Revolver.

I’ve never heard anything but good from their reviews on their first run so I will be looking forward to them getting back together later this year when they go on tour.

Really Was Born This Way

Most people have their set generes, but I kind of wanted to show that it doesn’t really matter what kind of music you like, there is room for all. I caught an article on Metal Injection earlier this week with some photos that Lady Gaga took while wearing an Anthrax shirt. I think its great for metal to get any type of publicity it can, especially when it comes from a killer songwriter and incredibly hard working performer.

If you’de like to see a different side to this tiny yet crazy singer here, here, and here.

Here is the original article on Metal Injection

Pretty cool

May is starting to look good for the shows. Meshugga this week, Dragonforce next week and the cherry on top, Fear Factory on the 23rd which looks to be their only Southern California date before they jump on a European tour.

The calendar is updated the first week of every month. If you have a band thats not listed on the calendar, shoot me an email at
