Ozzy Osbourne hears lost recording of Randy Rhoads for the first time

I remember when I was about 10 or so and I got a guitar tablature book of the Ozzy Osbourne and Randy Rhoads Tribute record. I was so excited to learn how to play Crazy Train! Nothing beats the feeling when you were younger to being able to play along with your rock idols on a *cough* cassette tape for the first time.

Anyways…when I saw this little bit of footage gold, I got excited to hear what lost recording Rhoads was on, and two, to see Ozzy’s reaction.

Watch below:

 

Sick huh?!

DZK King of Underground Hip Hop?

So one of my favorite underground hip hop rappers is DZK. He’s been around for a while and anyone who knows anything about the underground hip hop community knows of DZK. This guy is amazing with his wordplay and lyricism. To show my appreciation to DZK, I figured I would switch it up a little bit. Instead of giving you one video to watch, I figured I would give you three. I know I know, Migrate Music is too nice. You can thank us though by leaving a comment and telling us what you think about DZK.

Migrate Music Video Premiere: Wale ft. Jeremih & Rick Ross “That Way”

When I first heard Wale, I thought he was just like a whole lot of other artists out there. But after listening to him, I have come to accept him. Quite frankly I think he is pretty damn good. Wale slows it up for the ladies with this track off the album “Self Made Vol.1” Check the video out below.

THIS IS HELL Announces Details For Their Upcoming Album ‘Black Mass’

LONG ISLAND, NY – Long Island’s veteran hardcore metal group, This Is Hell, has announced that its fourth studio album, Black Mass, will see an October 11th release on Rise Records, confirming the identity of the mysterious website, AllRiseForTheBlackMass.com. The teaser site has seen a complete update, including a YouTube stream of the brand new track, “Black Mass.”

“The new album takes the crossover and metal influences from last album to much greater extremes and the end product was Black Mass, by far the heaviest and thrashiest songs we’ve written and recorded,” said guitarist, Rick Jimenez.

“Lyrically this album touches on issues we haven’t dove into before. Social injustice as a whole is a recurring theme. Persistence and empowerment are familiar themes with us that I’ve revisited, but with an even more aggressive outlook than before.”

Black Mass, the follow-up to the 2010 release, Weight of the World, was recorded earlier this summer at Killingsworth Studio in Valley Village, CA with producer, Tomas Costanza. 

“The artwork was done by Will Blood, an amazing English illustrator/artist that we’ve worked with on shirts and designs before,” added Jimenez. “The concept came from some lyrics and underlying themes from the album and Will really took the ball and ran with it. Whether someone takes the art at sheer superficial face value, or really absorbs the details and subtleties of it, it’s an extremely powerful piece of artwork. I feel the same way about the music and especially the lyrics on this new record.”
This Is Hell will hit the road next month for a North American tour with Underoath, Comeback Kid and The Chariot.
“We’re very excited for our upcoming tour with Underoath, Comeback Kid, and The Chariot,” said vocalist, Travis Reilly. “We’ve toured many times with Comeback Kid and we look forward to spending more time with them and meeting the other guys. It’s going to be great to play some new songs for a bunch of new faces.”

‘Like Moths To Flames’ Forced to Drop Off This Fall’s IGNITOUR, And Also Releases a Full-Length Album on Rise Records Set For Nov 8th

Like Moths To Flames – Real Talk via RISE RECORDS

Native Columbus, OH band Like Moths To Flames (Rise Records) have regrettably been forced to bow out of their run on this fall’s IGNITOUR which they were to begin on September 2nd. The band has released the following statement:

 “Due to the departure of our bass player, Aaron Douglas, combined with a delay in the studio completion due to Hurricane Irene, we regret to inform everyone that we will have to drop off the upcoming INGNITOUR with Ice Nine Kills and An Early Ending.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, but without a solid lineup, we don’t want to disservice our fans in any capacity.  We are going to finish up at the studio, head home and prepare for our two upcoming fall tours: Close Your Eyes/The Color Morale tour and then Thrash and Burn.  We’re super stoked on how our record is turning out and can’t wait for you guys to hear it.  We’re working on a plan to release a few tracks prior to our November 8th release date”

Like Moths To Flames has also announced a change to the lineup in the wake of Douglas’ departure. Eli Ford (ex-My Ticket Home) has joined the band and will take on guitar duties while Aaron Evans will move from guitar to bass.
