Juggalo threat

According to a news report at KOIN 6 in Portland, Oregon, local businesses have been receiving threatening messages as of late, warning them to leave the area. The fliers are apparently being left by fans of the Insane Clown Possee, aka Juggalos.

Fourteen establishments have received the notices, which read, "You have been targeted by the Juggalo family to get --- out. Vacate or --- our ----"

Here's a portion of the report from KOIN:

Business owners, including Hopworks Urban Brewery manager Spencer Kollman, said they are scared, after the notices were plastered on front doors and store fronts along N Williams St. and N. Shaver St.

Kollman said he came into work Thursday to find dozens of the same flier, which has been edited for graphic language, in the storefront.

"So I don't know what we did to make them angry or anybody else to make them angry," he said. "This is straight up vulgar."

In addition to the flyers, Kollman said he has noticed an increase in car break-ins.

"There's broken glass everyday," he said.

It remains unclear who made or distributed the flyers. Police could not confirm whether the fliers were in any way connected to the increase in car prowls.

You can watch a video report on the matter below.



Their partnership was all too brief, but in a recent episode of The Eric Andre Show on Adult Swim, California death metal band Exhumed performed with former Motown all-stars, The Supremes (or at least some singers billed as such).

It's not so much that the two groups performed together, but rather performed simultaneously on the same stage. Either way, the cacophony is confusing, if not thrilling. You can check out the relevant video below (fast forward to 12:20 if you're impatient).




A massive new Boxscore report has been released and we've extracted what we consider to be relevant to you guys. This week's data includes Black Sabbath, Tool, Avenged Sevenfold, Deftones, Meshuggah, Mastodon, Cannibal Corpse, Carcass, Gwar, and Comeback Kid, among many others.

Kasabian backdrop during Glasgow show

Major label English rock band Kasabian are blaming a production error for the vulgar backdrop that appeared during a Wednesday show in Glasgow, Scotland.

The unfortunate snafu resulted in the message "London is full of cunts" appearing behind the band mid-gig.

In a statement issued to NME, guitarist Serge Pizzorno had the following to say:

"We were as shocked as anyone else. The production team fucked up. There were supposed to be photos of mundane objects in that section but instead I turned around in the middle of 'Clouds' and couldn't believe my eyes."

Nicolas Cage should enjoy Amon Amarth

Wes Cage (aka Weston Coppola Cage), the son of actor Nicolas Cage, recently conducted an interview with Journey Of A Frontman to coincide with the release of his new single, "Tell Me Why (Matriarch Of Misery)." According to the 23-year-old musician, he and his father have already seen Lacuna Coil and Rob Zombie together. Here's what Cage had to say about bonding over music with his father:

"The last concert we went to was Mötley Crüe in Vegas where Tommy Lee almost started a fight with me. (laughs) We went to see Lacuna Coil with Rob Zombie, they played together. That was great. I want to show him Amon Amarth, that's one band that I really want him to get into because we both have a love for Viking mythology and anything Norse. My dad has always liked Nine Inch Nails, that was always on in the house. He listens to a lot of Rob Zombie. He was also playing a lot of classical music such as Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, and Chopin. All these outstanding composers were playing throughout the house. I think that's maybe what molded me the most and brought me to wanting to compose. When I was eighteen, I binged on nonstop symphonic classical music. I did not stop listening to counterpoint and things that I wanted to branch into a little more and Beethoven helped with that."
