John Frum Releases “Memory Palace” Video

Enigmatic, cult metal collective John Frum just unveiled a video for new song “Memory Palace.” The song is found on the band’s upcoming, debut album, “A Stirring In The Noos,” which is set for release through Relapse Records on May 12th.

Pre-orders are online now right here. The band also comments: “‘Memory Palace’ is a journey into the ever changing and expanding void we find ourselves hurtling through, and a reflection on the fleeting knowledge one stands to gain within. It also speaks to the pitfalls of our god complex and the futility of enlightenment on any scale.”

The mysterious John Frum is the manifestation of four musical minds coalescing in a collective consciousness developed from time spent playing with The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Faceless, John Zorn, Cleric and many more elite projects. This unorthodox debut maneuvers through 40 minutes of darkly psychedelic and meticulously crafted death metal, acting as the backdrop of a bad trip. Fans can also see the band live:

April 14 – Philadelphia, PA – Shred Shed w/ Surgeon + Night Raids + Special Guest Headliner TBA
April 15 – New York, NY – St. Vitus w/ Imperial Triumphant + Special Guest Headliner TBA
April 16 – Baltimore, MD – Metro Gallery w/Cemetery Piss + Special Guest Headliner TBA

Ozzy Osbourne Rumored To Appear In New Ghostbusters Movie

A few weeks back it was announced metal fans were being recruited for a concert scene in the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot, and now rumors are circulating that Ozzy Osbourne will appear in the flick. The Boston Herald had this to say:

“So rumor from the ‘Ghostbusters’ set is that the Prince of Darkness himself, Ozzy Osbourne, was the headliner at the heavy-metal concert scene director Paul Feig shot all last week at the Citi Wang Theatre.

“Our spy on the scene overheard a couple of crew members talking about the Black Sabbath frontman outside the theater where Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones were working.

“And posters outside the theater advertised a ‘Rock Revenge Fest featuring Ozzy Osbourne’ as part of a ’12 Hour Marathon of Metal.'”

This upcoming reboot of the classic franchise is being directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Office, Nurse Jackie) and stars Mellisa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig.
