Audrey Horne Streaming New Video “Holy Roller”

Norwegian metal outfit Audrey Horne is streaming a new animated clip for the track “Holy Roller” taken from their latest album “Pure Heavy” which was released earlier this year via Napalm Records.

States the band with a wink: “We did a rehearsal on the song Holy Roller, and someone filmed it. We did all we could to keep this off the internet, but apparently someone leaked it. We in Audrey Horne have no recollection of this incident, and therefore deny all actions in this film – but we also want to assure, that nobody were injured during this rehearsal – exept Ice Dale”.

Check out the new clip below.

Cro-Mags Issues Statement On The Harley Flanagan Stabbing Incident

New York hardcore legends, the Cro-Mags has posted a message online through their official Facebook page commenting on the recent incident at a show with Sick of it All, where former bassist Harley Flanagan entered the VIP Room with a knife and attacked several people. A statement from the band reads as follows:

“WE… as a band are truly sorry for the way it all turned out in every regard even the ex-member who’s family is now effected by his choices. Our prayers go out to them as well as Mike C., and the others who were hurt, but it was ‘his’ choice to come to our concert with a hunting knife, standing by our dressing door. Who knows what his actual intent was, obviously he wasn’t there with it to cut bread for a peace offering as he was heard saying outside he was putting an end to us playing without him. Let’s move on now & stop the trash-talking. Keep that PMA – that’s what we are all about.”

Any further information regarding the incident will be revealed as soon as it becomes available.

Cro-Mags Bassist Harley Flanagan Reportedly Stabs Man In The Chest

According to BoweryBoogie.com, a hardcore show featuring Sick of it All, Cro-Mags and Vision Of Disorder, had to be cancelled tonight when Harley Flanagan, founding bass player of the Cro-Mags, reportedly entered the VIP Lounge with a knife and stabbed a man in the chest. An excerpt of events reads as follows:

“Cops quickly appeared and took him away in cuffs. Not before he had already stabbed some dude in the chest (said victim left the scene with a bandage over the wound). Because of the violence the rest of the show was canceled. The remaining bands promised to reschedule the show. To be fair, Webster Hall security contained the situation professionally. Lots of drunken, pissed off hardcore fans were on edge after the cops shut down the show, but the scene was cleared without further incident.”

Former X Japan And Loudness Bassist Taiji Sawada Passes Away

Although the circumstances have yet to be revealed, former X Japan and Loudness bass player Taiji Sawada has reportedly passed away. He was 45 years old. The past week, Sawada had been involved in some controversy, after he was arrested on July 11th “for interference with a flight attendant” due to an incident on a plane en route from Japan to Saipan. He then attempted suicide three days later, (July 14th,) over the incident, for which he was allegedly facing federal charges in the United States. It is not yet known if these instances are related to his death.

Taiji Sawada played for the Japanese heavy metal band X Japan from 1985 to 1992, during which time he recorded three albums with group before creative differences forced him to leave and join fellow countrymen Loudness, with whom he appeared on their self-titled 1992 album, as well as their live record, “Once And For All.”
