Metalheads hate Justin Bieber, and when we learned of his adoration of the world’s biggest metal band, metal heads were ready to ask for his head. Metallica, however, were honored and sent love back to the Biebz.
One year after the loss of their vocalist Mitch Lucker, the band announced they’d be moving forward with new vocalist, Eddie Hermida, formerly of All Shall Perish. Eddie gave us an exclusive interview on the subject and it caused some drama, resulting in All Shall Perish issuing their own statement on Eddie’s departure. In the end, we hope both bands find success.
Blake Judd was arrested in October for theft and the band had to cancel their short tour dates, and as soon as Judd was released he announced he was disbanding the group for his own good, and that there would be one final release in 2014.
Although it’s all settled now, there was a point where these two metal bands did not get along. Broken Hope dropped off their tour with Deicide and proceeded to run down Benton’s name in the media. Benton responded in calm fashion with his side of the story, we all giggled and then everybody moved on.
