Some sad news broke over social media today, as people close to former Spiritbox bassist Bill Crook announced that he’d passed away.

News of his passing came from an Instagram post by Crook’s friend and fellow musician Kai Turmann. According to their post, they were asked by the bassist’s mother to share the news with the world.

“Hi everyone. I have some absolutely devastating news to share. I’m so profoundly sad to say that our dear friend Bill Crook has passed away. He was a friend to so many, and a dear friend to me since we were children. Bill was, and is, loved by so many people, and I’m so incredible sorry to have to share this devastating information with you.

“There will be many words and many tears, but for now I just need to get the terrible news out. Im so sorry. I love you all. I love you Bill.”

Crook was a member of Spiritbox from 2018 to 2022. He was credited with providing backing vocals on the band’s 2021 album Eternal Blue.

We at MetalSucks want to offer our deepest condolences to Crook’s surviving family, friends, and current/former bandmates during this trying time.

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is a ‘Freddie Mercury’ biopic that also tells the story of Queen. Just like every Holywood motion picture, it also features some extra touches to make Mercury’s life seem more dramatic. One of those stories is about his former lover and manager Paul Prenter.

Many came forward to say that Prenter’s depiction wasn’t that unfair. They believe he did indeed affect Mercury negatively and had a bad influence on the band. Today, we’ll try to shed some light on whether Paul Prenter was really the villain he’s rumored to be, or if he was he just misunderstood.

Prenter Had a Relationship With Mercury

Paul Prenter was a radio DJ from Northern Ireland. He met at a bar with Freddie in 1975 and became his manager two years later. It’s rumored that they had a sexual relationship, and Prenter used this to blackmail Mercury as he hadn’t come out of the closet yet.

Not much is known about their relationship. It was thought to be mainly professional for about five years until 1982. Queen members didn’t like Prenter as he encouraged Freddie’s crazy lifestyle, and the band’s ‘Hot Space‘ album was a breaking point. Roger Taylor and Brian May weren’t happy with it, and they blamed Prenter for changes in sound.

He Betrayed Mercury

Prenter betrayed Freddie Mercury on a very personal level. In his ‘Is This the Real Life?: The Untold Story of Queen,’ Mark Blake claims Freddie and Paul got into a fight after Paul organized a big party at the musician’s house.

This really upset Freddie. The two had a heated argument, and the Queen frontman fired Paul Prenter. Prenter told Mercury that he was going to get back at him. He sold a story and some photos to a newspaper about Freddie’s personal life. He went into detail about his lifestyle, claimed he slept with hundreds of men, and that two of his former partners died from AIDS.

This was very hard for Freddie as his private life was in front of millions of people at the hands of his former lover, manager, and friend. Prenter started to be known as Freddie’s very own ‘Judas,’ and moved back to Belfast. He died just a couple of months after Freddie’s passing.

Even more madness was had on day two of Inkcarceration.

The post Show Recap and Photo Gallery: Inkcarceration Day Two appeared first on MetalSucks.

]]>

(Editor’s note: In a bid to get more U.S. festival coverage on the site, we’ve got Sean Matthews out and about taking photos and documenting his experience at various shows. This go around, he spent the past weekend at this year’s Inkcarceration. This is day one, complete with photo galleries.)

As the second day was kicking off and crowds were walking through the festival’s entrance for yet another day of music, it was ex-Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Jason Hook’s band Flat Black that greeted us. I’d be lying if I said their set wasn’t a perfect way to start the day, essentially picking up where day one left off.

Upon A Burning Body took to the main stage, with lead singer Danny Leal provoking the crowd, taunting them to mosh in a bid to get the energy started early on. Even though they only played eight songs during their 30-minute set, it seemed longer when in the moment.

Immediately following that display was American deathcore band The Acacia Strain. Lead vocalist Vincent Bennett seemed to be having the time of his life up there on stage as the crowd raged in front of him. When he wasn’t singing, he would have this huge grin on his face, so it really seemed like the dude was having at least as good a time as the crowd was. They were a bit heavier than I recall in my Warped Tour days, but the riffs went hard and that’s all you really need to get the crowd moving and bodies flowing over the rail.

Nearly escaping with my gear intact, I huffed it over to the smallest stage to check out Cleveland’s own Unsaid Fate. Having heard a song or two recently pop up in random playlists, but having never seen them live before, it was great to finally put a live show to the recorded tracks. Walking on stage, lead singer Jackie LaPonza stole the set. Sporting a Pabst Blue Ribbon ballcap hung low with hair flowing in the wind, she really sang her heart out. Throughout their set, the band never stayed in one place, which made my job as a photographer a little challenging, but it really helped get the crowd more engaged with the show.

Then came a band I was told not to miss — Ill Nino! A friend said their stage presence was amazing and they had three percussionists, so I knew I had to check this out. And man, they were a sight to behold. They have a nu metal sound with a Latin flare mixed in. As a six-piece group, there was always something going on onstage.

While walking around the media area, I was initially surprised when I saw Hernan “Eddie” Hermida roaming around. It took me a moment to remember that he was still the lead singer of All Shall Perish. Up until recently, I’d only seen him with his other band, Suicide Silence. They took to the stage and it was all business. Eddie wasted no time hyping the crowd, getting the pit opened up, and dropping right into the heavy growls and high-pitched screams he is know for.

Atlanta based Sevendust was given a long time slot as the day progressed on. Playing a hit setlist, lead singer Lajon Witherspoon took moments to drop out and just listen to the fans sing back to him. He danced around the stage, having a great time. As a band of 30 years, they still love what they do and it shows.

What turned out to be the most entertaining group of the day, Fit For A King, was all over the place. As lead singer Ryan Kirby roamed the stage and interacting with the fans, bassist Ryan O’Leary jumped all over the place, using every surface as a launching pad. Risers, drum set, or just the stage… you name it, he was yeeting himself off it. And when he wasn’t getting airborne, he was swinging his bass around his neck like a hula hoop. There was a moment at the end of a song where he just kept the bass going… 2… 3… 4… times around his neck. If you haven’t had the chance to catch them live, they will be worth every penny.

The main stage was set! A handwritten Hotel Kalifornia sign hung crookedly on a mixer, fake palms strewn upon the stage… it could all only mean one thing. Hollywood Undead was about to take the stage. Their 50-minute set was a party to say the least. Coming out with “California Dreaming”, instantly had the crowd in the palm of their hands. Members switched instruments between songs, making everyone not only a singer, but a backup musician as well. The band is full of talent and energy. The crowd lost their minds during the hit song “Riot” and didn’t stop until the last note of hit single “Undead”.

Following that performance on the main stage would be a hard thing for anyone to do, but the boys from Detroit, Michigan in I Prevail did it well. Taking everything up a notch, pyro throughout the hour long set, made the already scorching day hotter, but that didn’t stop them. Lead singers Eric Vanlerberghe, and Brian Burkheiser took turns talking to the crowd, even having to stop a few times to save injured people. With great crowd control, one would say on the count of three take a step back, and after three you could visibly see the entire section of crowd move.

Before playing hit single “Hurricane” Brian made a speech about mental health and the challenges people face, and that they don’t have to be alone. That was a perfect cue, for someone to drop down on one knee mid song to propose to their girlfriend. As if their set wasn’t full of enough surprises, Lzzy Hale from Halestorm walked out on stage to hit newest single “Can You See Me In The Dark”.

As I Lay Dying, lead by singer Tim Lambesis came out on stage like they were on a mission. Heavy hitting songs rang through the speakers, and total chaos ensued in the crowd behind me. They were the perfect level of energy playing that stage hyping the die-hard fans for Killswitch Engage.

Halestorm was direct support on the main stage for Godsmack this evening, and lead singer Lzzy Hale walked out singing acapella which caught the attention of the entire venue. With a short prelude, they went right into hit single “I Miss The Misery”. Their 12-song setlist included “Can You See Me In The Dark” again, this time Eric Vanlerberghe came out for the duet. Moments of “I Get Off” had Lzzy laying in a back bridge contorted position while still wailing out high notes and playing the guitar. She sang her heart out for their entire set and left it all on the stage.

Closing out the second stage tonight was Killswitch Engage, and they didn’t disappoint. Starting with mega-hit “My Curse” they set the tone relatively quickly, and the crowd matched the energy effectively. Over 14 songs, crowd surfers gave security a run for their money, and made taking photos essentially unbearable. Between the massive security guards, and the waterfall of surfing fans, the photo pit was more of a mosh pit than a safe space.

With hits like “In Due Time”, “My Last Serenade” and “This Fire” there couldn’t have been a better playlist from them tonight. Ending it on a huge hit both for them as well as the original artists “Holy Diver” rang out in the air as the lights dimmed on their performance.

As the evening came, and the sun set, the main stage lights went down, and “For Those About To Rock” rang out over the PA system. Coinciding with a video of Godsmack over the years, showing rare footage from shows so long ago, most attendees weren’t even born yet, all the way to present day. Walking on stage, lead singer Sully Erna took to the microphone and laid right into 2018’s “When Legends Rise”, followed directly by “Cryin’ Like a Bitch” the hits just kept coming. 14 songs spanning 7 different albums, and a massive drum solo featuring not only drummer Shannon Larkin, but also Sully Erna, was more than enough to fulfill this crowd’s needs and send them home happy after a glorious day two.

The Centennial State's about to get heavy (and drunk) as fuck.

If there’s one thing our buddies over at Decibel know how to do, it’s put together a killer fucking show. They do it every year in Philly and they’ve been doing it in Denver, too. But when they announced this year’s Decibel Metal & Beer Fest: Denver lineup, I gotta say — it feels like they’ve outdone themselves this time.

Set to take place on Friday, December 6 and Saturday, December 7 at the Summit in Denver, Colorado, the two-day concert experience is going to feature some must-see sets from some absolutely monstrous acts. We’re talkin’ YOB. We’re talkin’ Cirith Ungol. I dunno, how about fuckin’ Autopsy? That do anything for ya? Because it should.

As it stands, here’s the full lineup for both days:

Friday, December 6:

Autopsy (“Severed Survival” set)
Frozen Soul
Undergang
Dreadnought
Necropanther
Upon Stone
Daeva

Saturday, December 7:

YOB
Cirith Ungol
Pallbearer
Crypt Sermon
Earthburner
Glacial Tomb
Oak, Ash & Thorn

Look at those bands and tell me that doesn’t look like a great time. Actually, don’t because that would make you a goddamned liar.

Not content to just leave it there, Decibel also have a pre-show event planned for Thursday, December 5 at Ratio Beerworks, featuring Green Druid, Abrams, and Cloud Catcher. Tickets for that show will set you back $18 in advance. Like I said — they don’t fuck around.

And since this is a “Metal and Beer” festival, that means you’re gonna have a shot at tasting some delectable brews along the way. Attendees that are 21 and older can get a cuppa suds from the following breweries:

3 Floyds Brewing (IN)
Incantation Brewing (CO)
Black Sky Brewery (CO)
Nepenthe Brewing Co. (MD)
Brimming Horn Meadery (DE)
WarPigs Brewing (IN)
Adroit Theory (VA)
Smoldered Society Beer Company (NY)
Thin Man Brewing (NY)
Magnanimous Brewing (FL)
Attic Brewing (PA)
Ratio Beerworks (CO)
TRVE Brewing

Tickets for this truly kick ass event will be available this Friday, July 26, though Decibel is having a limited presale. For more details about tickets and pricing, be sure to head over to Decibel‘s website to learn more.

Get in the pit and roll for initiative

The post Review: Summoning the Lich Tell a Dark and Ambitious Tale of Fantastical Realms on <i>Under the Reviled Throne</i> appeared first on MetalSucks.

]]>

This might come as a shock to some, but I am a huge, unabashed nerd. If it’s got dragons, space battles, swords, people in obnoxious latex costumes beating the shit out of criminals, and/or volumes of unnecessarily deep lore to dive into, then I’m in. Doubly so if dice are involved. Fantasy themes have been highly prevalent in metal pretty much since the beginning and have often gone hand in hand with each other, especially in power metal.

But who’s to say fantasy can’t be brutal? Just because a fictional world has magic in it doesn’t mean that there can’t also be wanton death, destruction, and fear of impending apocalyptic annihilation, right? These are the tough and frankly brave questions that the up-and-coming St. Louis technical death metal outfit Summoning the Lich have been asking for the past few years, and their sophomore album Under the Reviled Throne provides one hell of a good answer.

But let’s not focus too heavily on the fantasy elements just yet — at least not solely. Yes, the subject matter is very nerdy and the imaginary world that these guys have created would undoubtedly serve as a great setting for a D&D campaign, but at the end of the day the most important aspect is, of course, the music itself. You could be screaming about folding the laundry for all I care; as long as the riffs are cool then everything else is secondary, and even if you were to remove all the swords and sorcery, this would still be a genuinely well written tech death album with a satisfyingly fluid and sensible flow.

Each song has its own distinct sense of personality, constantly experimenting with elements of blackened deathcore, top shelf melodeath, Archspire-esque breakneck speeds, and black metal’s signature pervasive atmosphere, but with a constant connecting thread keeping everything on track and ensuring that all of the transitions remain smooth and subtle. From the insanely catchy middle section of the opening track “Return to the Soil”, to the way “The Forest Feasts” seems to keep getting faster and faster until it reaches critical mass and loops back in on itself, to the beginning of “The Carrion Fleet” almost sounding like a completely different band as it leans dramatically into black metal territory but with gravity blasts, every song contains something wholly unexpected to keep things from going stale and reward the listener for sticking it out.

These are just a few examples, but the point is that this is a very self-aware album, highly cognizant of where it is at any given point and taking care not to repeat itself while working towards the next step. You never quite know which direction the music is going to go, but every time it arrives at its inevitable conclusion, it just feels right. It demonstrates just how much time, effort, thought, and passion went into the writing process, and the end result speaks for itself.

It’s not just the music that’s cleverly written and stylishly executed on Under the Reviled Throne, but the vocals as well. It might seem like overstating the obvious, but good vocals can make or break an album, and not just the tone but the lyrical patterns as well. Fortunately, vocalist David Bruno clearly understood the assignment and showed up ready to go to work on this one. This is a guy who understands that the vocals are just as much of an instrument as the rest of the, well, instruments. As such, he has gone to great lengths to push the limit of his technique, enunciation, and speed, squeezing as many syllables and words as he can into the boundaries he is given in order to narrate the aforementioned storyline in a way that not only blends naturally with the rest of the music but enhances it.

The band’s debut album United in Chaos told the story of a scorned druid slain by the very people he was once sworn to protect, and in his rage he sacrificed his soul to rise again as an unholy and all-powerful lich bent on bringing the realm of Arrias to its knees and reshaping it in his image with his seemingly limitless dark magical powers. Since then, armies have been rallied on both sides, and chaos and calamity have wormed their way throughout the kingdom. Under the Reviled Throne continues this captivating storyline, and although many have fallen to the Sin and the lich’s dark forces, there is still a faint glimmer of hope and resistance brewing in the far-flung wilds of this world. Not all hope is lost, but a titanic struggles lies ahead of the forces of good, and if they fail, then all will fall to madness and ruin. Will hope, reason, and justice prevail, or will death reign supreme once and for all? You’ll have to check out the album to find out.

Under the Reviled Throne drops this Friday, July 26th via Prosthetic Records. Pre-order your copy here
