Mike Correa crowdkiller karma

Self-described "captain crowdkill" Mike Correa apparently got his comeuppance at a benefit show in Vista, CA on Saturday, February 6. Basically, a girl set Mr. Correa straight during a Raw Dawg set. Have a look below.

As you may or may not know, Boston hardcore/post-hardcore band Vanna were the victims of a van break-in while on tour in Atlanta several days ago. A GoFundMe was subsequently launched by their manager to help cover losses, and thus far, the campaign has raised over $11,000. That's a great show of support for the band right there.

While this was happening, we received three separate emails (from different people) complaining that members of the band were playing the dice game Cee-lo. Apparently a handful of photographs were posted by said members via Snapchat (relevant Snapchat usernames sent to us include mr_pastuszak and mylegsgavein). One of them, to which somebody (not us) obviously added some text, can be seen below.

Here was the most passionate of the emails we received:

"Vanna was robbed yesterday in Atlanta and in response set up a GoFundMe me account which raised over eleven thousand dollars in one day. While this GoFundMe was being bumped all across the Internet the guys in Vanna were playing $100 cee-lo (dice) games in a hotel room. Pictures to prove it. This needs to be reported as it is clear that this band is profiting from their fans, claiming to be penniless, having lost everything, while simultaneously sitting in a hotel room gambling hundred of dollars. Photos can be provided. Captions included. Photos are still on members snap chats that were sent out to certain people in hopes of not being exposed"

Make of this what you will. We have no proof that Vanna was playing Cee-lo this weekend (photos could have been old). Furthermore, while not particularly tactful, gambling money while receiving donations doesn't negate the necessity of raising funds to offset a robbery. The two aren't mutually exclusive. Besides, aren't dudes in bands slumming it across the country to play hardcore entitled to a little windfall?

Any way you slice it, there are at least a few people out there not too happy with the band at the moment.

Chris Fronzak with portion of car collection

We love posting about the life and times of Chris Fronzak, entrepreneur and Attila frontman. His multiple businesses, his extreme wealth... he's the Howard Hughes of metalcore.

In this week's Fronzak update, we're excited to inform you that he recently launched a new Instagram account dedicated to his splendid automobile collection, which apparently includes a 2014 Ferrari 458 Italia, 2015 BMW i8, and 2016 Mercedes G63. Have a look and tell your friends.

Until next time, stay sick, kids.

Aerodrums box with sticks

I was doing my regular jam session last night (I play in a hobby band with two other guys) and our bassist mentioned Aerodrums. He said they were the coolest thing he'd seen in a long time. I forgot about it until just now when our comrades at Metal Injection mentioned it and I figured I'd have a look. It is indeed pretty awesome.

So basically, you use the Oculus Rift virtual reality system in conjunction with Aerodrums and its sensors, allowing you to play drums with just two sticks and a little space.

Have a look at the demo below, and get more information via the company's website.

Donald Trump made a campaign stop today in Manchester, New Hampshire and The Red Chord frontman and local police officer Guy Kozowyk was there to greet him. Kozowyk shared the photo below (i.e. it's not Photoshopped). We can only hope that tonight Trump will find a copy of Fused Together In Revolving Doors in his back pocket.

Video of Trump's visit with police officers (including Kozowyk at the 9:17 mark) can be found below.

Bill O'Reilly plugs Megadeth on TV

Bill O'Reilly, host of what's currently the most-watched cable news program, The O'Reilly Factor, gave a surprising endorsement of the new Megadeth album on the air last night (February 3). You can check out the video below. Here's what Mr. O'Reilly had to say:

"A hard rock guy named Dave Mustaine who used to be in the group Metallica and is now in the group Megadeth is apparently a big 'Factor' fan. Mr. Mustaine Tweeted out pictures of all the 'Killing' books he has read, and that gets my attention. Very politely, Mr. Mustaine then asked me to listen to Megadeth's new album, 'Dystopia'.

"Now, right before I go to sleep, I usually listen to Megadeth. It relaxes me, it brings me down.I have to say I'm an R&B guy, not heavy metal or hard rock. However, I keep an open mind on these things, and some members of my staff are big Megadeth fans. They've got piercings everywhere. So we wish Dave Mustaine much success with his new album and admire his promotional ability."

The O'Keefe Music Foundation, an organization that enables children to freely record their musical performances, has released a music video their kids' version of the Slipknot song "Duality." According to the Foundation, "this is not only a cover but also a reinterpretation of the original Slipknot video." You can have a look below.

Ted Cruz likes Nickelback sign

Few things in this world are more offensive than Nickelback, so Presidential candidate Ted Cruz must bristle every time he's associated with the band, right? Probably not, but regardless, for the past few weeks some anonymous fellow has been showing up at various Ted Cruz campaign events in Iowa with a sign proclaiming that Cruz is a Nickelback fan. I have no clue if Cruz knows who Nickelback is, but if he in fact likes them, he's clearly not fit to President of the United States.

At least the band themselves have a sense of humor about it, as you can see below.

Slayer 'God Hates Us All' banner for religious protesters at NAMM

Trade show NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) took place several days ago in Anaheim, CA, and for reasons unclear to me (all the metal heads?) religious groups were out in force, protesting something or other. Anyway, one Slayer fan decided to express his perceived oppression by unfurling a Slayer banner, because... well, why not?

Decrepit Birth drummer Samus Paulicelli has just uploaded a new video in which he plays in the style of a handful notalable metal drummers. Samus encapsulates his performance this way: "14 drummers who have influenced the heavy metal genre in some way or another." Among those represented are Danny Carey (Tool), Tomas Haake (Meshuggah), and Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer). You can check it out below.
