RIP James Owen Sullivan

RIP James Owen Sullivan, aka Rev, the drummer of Avenged Sevenfold. According to the Orange County Register, the 28-year-old was found dead of natural causes in his home earlier today. Just 10 months past the required age for the 27 Club, he is sure to remain in the hearts, thoughts, and eardrums of music lovers everywhere.

This seems almost prophetic now:

"I see a distant light, but girl this can't be right.
Such a surreal place to see, so how did this come to be?
Arrived too early."
-Afterlife (Avenged Sevenfold)

New Music: Dillinger Escape Plan

Check the brand new single "Farewell Mona Lisa" by the Dillinger Escape Plan off their upcoming album Option Paralysis due out March 23. This really tears shit up and has me even more excited for the new release. In the words of Bring Me the Horizon, this was what the edge of your seat was made for! Merry Christmas to all, and in Ben Weinman's case, Happy Hannukah!

Taste the Bleach

If I could travel in time, I would:
1. Prevent the car accident I was in this summer that totaled my precious BMW
2. See Nirvana live in concert

Since I can't do either, I guess watching this video clip of Nirvana live in Reading will suffice:
