We don't make it habit of covering brokeNCYDE, the "crunkcore" group that was big for like two months. However, I stumbled upon the new video for brokeNCYDE's latest single, "Los Locos," and I wanted you to suffer the same way I did. Behold:

Drummer extraordinaire Mike Portnoy (The Winery Dogs, ex-Dream Theater, ex-Avenged Sevenfold) recently covered portions of Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, etc. songs on a Hello Kitty drum kit while playing a game of 'Name That Tune' for the folks at Loudwire. If you haven't nothing better to do, you can watch below.

Slipknot Halloween masks

Ever the enterprising businessmen, Slipknot are now selling Halloween masks, one for each member of the group. Prices range from $32 through $60, and if you buy one, something may or may not be wrong with you. Anyway, now you know.

Augustus Sol Invictus

We here at Lambgoat ask that all lambs and goats be treated with respect. As such, we cannot support the candidacy of U.S. Senate hopeful, Augustus Sol Invictus.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, two years ago Sol Invictus walked from central Florida to the Mojave Desert and "in a pagan ritual to give thanks when he returned home, he killed a goat and drank its blood."

Not suprisingly, that sort of thing isn't sitting well with his peers. Neither are his supposed ties to neo-Nazis:

"The chairman of the Libertarian Party of Florida has resigned to call attention to Invictus' candidacy in hopes that other party leaders will denounce him. Adrian Wyllie, who was the Libertarian candidate for governor last year, says Invictus wants to lead a civil war, is trying to recruit neo-Nazis to the party and brutally and sadistically dismembered a goat."

I obviously can't speak to his relationship with white supremacistis or neo-Nazis, but "brutally and sadistically dismembered a goat"... how dare you, sir.

Anyway, check out the video below and then tell me this guy is completely sane. Is it just me or does he speak as if he's auditioning for a Gene Hackman movie?

I'm not sure what inspired this guy (supposedly the guitarist of Capsize) to start going off mosh pit style at what appears to be an inappropriate place and time, but I appreciate his apparent zest for life.


@xthedogx got em going on that #hxcmoshchallenge MOSHTOBERFEST lmao

I'm not sure if mosh pits are getting weirder, or I'm just getting old and less weird. Either way, I've honestly never seen Flashdance-esque dancing in a mosh pit before. Well, that is until this video footage from a recent Norma Jean show surfaced online:

Burger King black bun burger

Burger King has now officially launched the Halloween edition of their Whopper offering. This isn't the first time black burger buns have been available from Burger King, but it is the first time in the United States.

Interestingly, the A1 Halloween Whopper Sandwich has the steak sauce baked into its grim bun.

"We tailored the flavor of the black bun to the American palate with A.1. sauce, a flavor this country loves, and we're delivering it in a way that's never been done before by baking it into the bun," said Burger King Chief Marketing Officer Eric Hirschhorn. "It may look Japanese but it tastes like America."

Yes, there is new footage of some guy with cornrows eating corn while listening to the band Korn for several minutes. Why? I have no idea. I'd call this video corny, but that would be, well, corny. F*ck my life.

Yesterday, Apple Music welcomed Atreyu back to the music world by Tweeting a photo of Blessthefall. Whoops.

We're not sure how many of the service's 7.7 million followers noticed, but Atreyu did. The band informed Apple of its mistake, and the Tweet was subsequently removed and replaced with a proper photo. A few readers wouldn't let Apple forget its error though, including these two clever souls:
