Throw the Killswitch

Killswitch Engage

1. John MacLean abducted by aliens! Made of tinfoil pie-plates! Who want to get to second base! And he's not exactly against the idea! Go here, and click on "video."

2. Killswitch on Kimmel?! Mmm-hmm. But will Mike D (no, not that Mike D) be back in time? Oddly, Kimmel site says show's airing last night, though band's peeps say tonight. In the meantime, if you don't already have it:

Killswitch Engage, Rose of Sharyn (right-click, save-as)

3. New England Metal and Hardcore Festival jumpoff tonight in Wormtown. While we're on deadline, go load your iPod for the long drive. By the way, Danzig: still fat. Danzig and Doyle, though: Misfits set at the Roxy last month was supremely focused.

Cryptopsy, "Carrionshine" (unreleased demo from forthcoming album). Canadian dudes tuck in their t-shits, spit 12-bar dry-heaves, kick Millennium Falcon-speed blastbeats, wreck guitar charts that give Stephen Hawking headaches. How do you say "Tour de force" in French?
Cryptopsy, "Cold Hate, Warm Blood" From Whisper Supremacy, which, along with Converge's When Forever Comes Crashing, was responsible for getting us to come out of headbanger retirement back in 1998.

Go here or here for "Antman," the advance track from the Red Chord's Clients, which really is perfect-10 material.

All That Remains, "The Deepest Gray" (right-click, save-as)

Jamey Jasta's side project Ice Pick have downloadable tracks here.

Unearth, "The Great Dividers" (right-click, save-as)

3. While we're talking metal: Beyond the Embrace dropped jaws this month at the Rumble, proving that, well, at least the Rumble is good for something. For everyone who's been sleeping, we've been telling you about these dudes since '02: New Bedford's Metal Blade'd triple-guitar kids have the Master of Puppets-style thrash-anthem game on lockdown. Go download here.
