River Black (Ex-Burnt By The Sun, Revocation Etc.) Debuts New Song “Jaws” From Upcoming Self-Titled Debut Album

River Black (Ex-Burnt By The Sun, Revocation etc.) debuts a new song entitled “Jaws”, taken from the band’s upcoming self-titled debut album, which will be released July 07th via Season Of Mist. River Black features former members of Burnt By The Sun (vocalist Mike Olender, guitarist John Abudato and drummer Dave Witte) and Revocation bassist Brett Bamberger.

Check out now “Jaws” below.

Comments vocalist Mike Olender:

“‘Jaws‘ is about the paternal instinct of human nature. When I started a family I came face to face with certain forces I had not encountered before, rooted in the instinct to protect my family from harm. It was so deep that I found that I had to protect myself from my own emotions. A graphic news story about child abuse or predators could haunt me for days. I saw my sense of compassion and the need to understand why people do terrible things crumble with my acceptance of my own sin – wrath. This song is for the fathers and mothers who give of themselves selflessly to provide for their families, and it is dedicated to the victims of neglect and horrific abuse.”

Megadeth Honored With “Best Metal Performance” Grammy Award

Megadeth took home the Grammy tonight for the “Best Metal Performance” category at the 59th annual Grammy Awards, held Sunday, February 12 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The nomination marked Megadeth’s twelfth over the years. Megadeth was nominated for “Dystopia”, the title track for the band’s 2016 album.

As Megadeth approached the stage to accept the award, the house band inexplicably played Metallica’s classic “Master Of Puppets.”

Says mainman Dave Mustaine in his acceptance speech:

“Fantastic! Only took twelve tries to get this. Last time we were here, we were talking to Kenny G, and he asked me how many times we were here, and he goes, ‘Well, eleven isn’t that bad.’ And I said, ‘How many times did it take you?’ And he said, Twenty-one.’ And I was, like, ‘Oh, my god. If it takes twenty-one times… I don’t know if I’ll live that long.’ I wanna thank Jesus Christ, I wanna thank my wife, my children, all the band’s wives and kids, I wanna thank our management, our label, our agent, our attorney, our crew, all of you, especially the metal community. I think it’s a little weird that we ended up being category 69, but somebody’s got a sense of humor.”

Baroness – “Shock Me”

Korn – “Rotting In Vain”
Periphery – “The Price Is Wrong”
