Their first full-length since their 2009-released When In Hell album, Golden Eagle shows Ambassador Gun as always bridging all gaps subdividing extreme punk/metal genres into a crushing, crusty punk-as-fuck grind-infused amalgamation of revulsion.

Golden Eagle is out now on cassette and digital download via the band's self-operated label Pangea Media now.
Clearly one of the fundamentals of heavy music in general is being able to scream your balls off! I'm talking just screaming until you can't scream anymore and there's weird shit growing in your throat from straining so much. Well this clip does a good job of summarizing some of the best rock and metal screams that have ever come out of the mouths of your favorite artists. There are some obvious choices such as Chester Bennington of Linkin Park's awesome scream in the song "Given Up" and it's nice to see Slipknot at number three, although Corey Taylor probably could have taken all thirteen spots himself. Definite props though for handing Korn the number one slot as nobody seems to have more angst and anger in them than Jonathan Davis. You may disagree with some of the choices, as I did, but overall a solid list.

Ok, so like the disclaimer says, no matter how bad our day is going, we all need a good laugh sometimes and fortunately for you, I've discovered an absolute gem for all of you! Thor (no not the Norse god of thunder or the comic book adaptation) is a Canadian heavy metal band that began in the 1970s. Believe it or not, the band is still together and writing and recording new music, but this video takes us back to the band's debut record from 1977 called Keep the Dogs Away. Thor's debut is widely considered to be one of the worst rock records of all time and this music video does nothing to help their cause. If the song with its ultra cheesy lyrics and lame production isn't enough, the music video looks like something a kid who failed film school came up with. I'm ashamed that this is even considered music and I'm sure you'll agree with me but if you're dying for a sure fire laugh then click play and crank those speakers up!
