Mixing Is Complete On Final RIGOR MORTIS Album

I was very excited when I posted that Rigor Mortis would be releasing a new album, however that was before Mike Scaccia's untimely passing. It's been a few months since, and now news has broke that Dallas-based engineer Kerry Crafton, who engineered the original self-titled for Capitol Records in 1988, has finished mixing the final … The post Mixing Is Complete On Final RIGOR MORTIS Album appeared first on Metal Injection .

Dave Mustaine-Designed Jackson Y2KV Guitar Auctioned for $11K

eBay There are definitely some avid Dave Mustaine fans out there and one of them just shelled out just over $11,000 to own an ultra rare prototype Jackson Y2KV guitar that was specifically created for the Megadeth leader. Mustaine signed off on the design and it was delivered to him on Dec. 23, 1998. The guitarist was proud enough of the instrument to pose with it on the cover of Guitar magazine in 1999. The magazine photo, along with the original guitar order form and snapshots of the instrument, can be viewed at the eBay auction site here . This was the first guitar with the final 3+3 Y2KV head and was branded with the Jackson logo on the headstock. It features dot inlays, a rosewood fingerboard, alternate knobs and a blade switch. While the body shape wasn’t quite finalized, this was the first approved prototype by Mustaine, used as a reference for the final prototype. The guitar comes with Seymour Duncan JB-TB bridge and JB SH-4 neck pickups and well as a Tune-o-Matic string through body bridge and Schaller tuners. The Megadeth frontman designed the guitar as his vision of a less-aggressive, retro-looking flying V, which was a bit of a contrast to his usual King V that he was playing at the time. The guitar was primarily used during the support of the ‘Risk’ and ‘The World Needs a Hero’ records. The winning bidder, who submitted an $11,300 bid, will also receive a signed certificate of authenticity in return for their payment.

Former Iron Maiden Singer Paul Di’Anno Flips Out at Heckler Yelling ‘Bruce Dickinson’

Paul Di’Anno: Official Facebook Although Bruce Dickinson is widely regarded as the definitive vocalist of Iron Maiden , fans of the band still hold much respect for Paul Di’Anno , who sang on the albums ‘Iron Maiden’ (1980) and ‘Killers’ (1981). However, at Di’Anno’s recent tour stop in Ukraine, the vocalist got into an altercation after being heckled by an audience member. Di’Anno has been making music since his departure from the band, along with performing songs from Maiden’s first two albums around the world. The 54-year-old Di’Anno has claimed that he will be bidding fans farewell , with 2013 to be his final year as an active touring musician. In what could possibly be his final Ukrainian show, Di’Anno found himself in a war of words after being heckled with “Bruce Dickinson” chants by a member of the audience. Mocking the broken English of the heckler, Di’Anno replied, “I am number one vocal Bruce Dickinson,” at around the 1:45 mark in the video below, adding, “I’m sorry, I don’t sing opera,” before comically singing the chorus of the Maiden staple ‘Run to the Hills.’ “If you like Bruce Dickinson; go home. Listen to his records. Why did you come and buy a ticket, motherf—er? This is real punk, man. This is what made Iron Maiden, not the money-making machine. If you don’t like it, go f— yourself.” Di’Anno continues, “Better still, you wanna fight? You’ll be sorry. I’ll rip off your head and s–t down your neck, you motherf—er.” Di’Anno threw some homophobic slurs at the Ukrainian fan, who tried to smooth things over with Di’Anno throughout the rest of his set. Di’Anno seemed to forgive the fan as the show came to a close with a cover of ‘Blitzkreig Bop’ by Di’Anno’s “favorite band,” the Ramones. Check out Paul Di’Anno’s Ukrainian altercation in the video below. Watch Paul Di’Anno’s Altercation with a Ukrainian Audience Member [NSFW]

Underoath To Break Up Following Farewell Tour and Career-Spanning Compilation

Solid State Records After 15 years, seven albums, Grammy and Dove award nominations and 1.3 million albums sold, the metalcore band Underoath has announced they are calling it a day. The band will release a retrospective album ‘Anthology 1999-2013′ on Nov. 6 via Solid State Records. “It’s sad to say that we feel like it’s time to close this chapter, but we have never seen things more clearly,” says vocalist Spencer Chamberlain. “These have been the best years of my entire life, and I owe that to every single person who ever supported this band along the way. This wasn’t a quick decision by any means. It’s just time for us to move on.” The compilation will include songs from all of Underoath’s albums, from 1999′s ‘Act of Depression’ through 2010’s ‘Ø (Disambiguation)’. In addition to previously released material, the collection also includes two newly recorded songs: ‘Sunburnt’ and ‘Unsound,’ the final material recorded by the band. Fans will get a chance to see Underoath one last time, as they are planning a farewell tour. “Over the past decade or so of our lives, we have been able to live a dream traveling the world, playing music that excites us, and meeting more amazing people than we could have ever fathomed,” says keyboardist Chris Dudley. “This couldn’t be a more bittersweet moment for us. We have accomplished more, met more friends, seen more places and have just done more than we could have ever imagined, and we really wanted to just go out on the highest note possible.” “That’s why we have put together a group of great friends and musicians for what will be our final tour ever,” Dudley continues. “We are taking every moment of this tour as an opportunity to say goodbye to you all, as well as celebrate what has taken place over all these years. The love we have and the debt of gratitude that we owe to all of you is not able to be measured in any way.” More information about the farewell tour, which will embark in 2013, will be announced soon. “We don’t take this very lightly and it’s heartbreaking for all of us,” Chamberlain says of the band’s announcement, “but all good things must come to an end. We love all of you and hope to see you again soon.” Underoath – ‘Anthology 1999-2013′ Track List 1. ‘Sunburnt’ 2. ‘Unsound’ 3. ‘In Division’ 4. ‘Catch Myself Catching Myself’ 5. ‘Paper Lung’ 6. ‘Desperate Times, Desperate Measures’ 7. ‘Too Bright To See, Too Loud To Hear’ 8. ‘In Regards To Myself’ 9. ‘You’re Ever So Inviting’ 10. ‘Writing On The Walls’ 11. ‘A Boy Brushed Red Living In Black And White’ 12. ‘Reinventing Your Exit’ 13. ‘It’s Dangerous Business Walking Out Your Front Door’ 14. ‘I’ve Got Ten Friends And A Crowbar That Says You Ain’t Gonna Do Jack’ 15. ‘When The Sun Sleeps’ 16. ‘Cries Of The Past’ 17. ‘Heart Of Stone’
