Good news, everyone! Up and coming progressive metal giants Gods of Eden (whom we posted about just yesterday) have confirmed via Facebook that they will be working with legendary producer/mixer/recording engineer/god among us Jens Bogren!

Devin Townsend‘s career-spanning live variety show The Retinal Circus was released on Blu-Ray, CD, and DVD last week by InsideOut Music, but that doesn’t mean we still can’t get a new glimpse of the release! Surely, many of you have yet to purchase this thing for some reason, and if this doesn’t have you at least considering it, then I don’t know what to do for you.
You know the drill by now, our favourite Canadian Devin Towsend is back and is teasing some updates through his Twitter account and, over the last few days, we’ve learnt a couple of interesting things. First up, remember Ghost II? The ‘leftover’ sessions from the extremely mellow Ghost that never quite properly saw the light of day? Well, according to a new tweet, Devy will be cannibalising some of the material for use on the 2nd disc of the upcoming Casualties Of Cool release:
Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssss. Indeeeeeed. Listen up, you poopy poop heads, it’s time for another round of incessant gabbering and mindless swearing with Ziltoid The Omniscient.
You know the drill by now —- the Ziltoid Radio Show is currently the best thing being streamed over the airwaves right now, maybe even in the existence of time and space. To make it even better, the show is now completely uncensored so get ready for a whole lot of ‘fucks’ and ‘shits’ to be unloaded upon you. So, check it out, in full here courtesy of Team Rock Radio.
Get ready poopnuggets, Ziltoid The Omniscient returns in his space-cruiser Mr. Wiggles to rain death and musical knowledge bombs upon us all. In other words, Ziltoid Radio’s second episode is available for streaming and due to it’s move from an early afternoon to a night time slot it’s more poop-joke oriented than ever and even contains an intro that sounds like it could be new music from his upcoming Z2 album.
Put on your sleuthing hats, ladies and gents, it’s time for speculation. Earlier today, on the UK digital radio station Team Rock Radio, the transmission was interrupted by the almighty Ziltoid stating that his ‘hour was getting close’ and providing us with one of the best ‘knock knock’ jokes ever conceived. You can listen to the full exchange here:
The cruise ship festival idea still hasn’t shit the bed! Every year, more and more concert cruises take off to varying results, but on paper, the radness of it all is undeniable. If you’ve got the cash and vacation time, it seems to me like the best bang for your buck as a music lover would be to go on one of these cruises. Barge to Hell and 70,000 Tons Of Metal are recurring successes, but last year’s attempt for a Mayhem Festival cruise was a massive failure. Hopefully this fate isn’t met by the new Progressive Nation At Sea event, which features the likes of Mike Portnoy, Devin Townsend, Riverside, Animals As Leaders, The Safety Fire, and more!

Simply put, Misery Signals’ newest effort is a superb album. A work in complexity that pushes many boundaries of the band’s sound, while retaining what has always been theirs. Vocalist Karl Schubach’s lyrics and delivery are as good, if not better than ever, and the Morgan brothers steal the show with their innovative guitar work and intricate drumming. Some fans of the band should be happy in knowing Absent Light is more like sophomore effort ‘Mirrors’ than 2008′s more progressive Controller, though others may be put off by the shift back to a less progressive, more intense writing style.
You’ve probably already heard ‘We Are‘, the track put together by multi-instrumentalist Ray Holroyd in support of Buskaid, a charity devoted to helping to provide instruments and musical tuition to children in South Africa. You’re probably well aware of the fact that it contains contributions from some very well respected metal musicians; namely System Of A Down‘s Serj Tankian, Scandinavian king of prog Ihsahn and the musical deity that is Devin Townsend.
But, did you know that they have released an incredibly trippy video in support of the song?
