Tool's Adam Jones will have his own Gibson Les Paul line

The guitarist of Tool, Adam Jones, is working hand in hand with Gibson to create his own line of guitars based on the LesPaul 1979 Silverbust model, his favorite.

"I remember I bought the first one from a store on the Sunset Strip in the early 90's. The seller tried not to, it was one of those Guitar R Us type stores, where they were all very handsome and well-groomed, with jeans tucked into their cowboy boots.

But from the beginning I loved the color and the guitar in general, I think that metallic tone in the paint has an effect on the tone or the resonance ...

Right now I have six Les Paul Silverbust and a couple more that they gave me from other custom guitars that were painted that color. Before I only took two guitars on tour, but now we play 'Prison Sex' on Drop B and then I have to go down to Drop C for 'The Pot' because that makes it easier for Maynard and allows it to be released completely.

The Rolling Stones threaten Trump: "Don't use our music in your campaign"

The legendary British band The Rolling Stones have reported through a statement that the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump And his team are strictly prohibited from using his music during his reelection campaign or they will risk a lawsuit.

“Esta deberá ser la última vez que el presidente Donald Trump usa canciones de los Stones. A pesar de peticiones previas de desistimiento que se le hicieron llegar a Trump en el pasado, los Rolling Stones están realizando todos los procedimientos necesarios para evitar que use su música en cualquier campaña futura. El equipo legal de los Stones está trabajando con (la disquera) BMI. BMI ha notificado al equipo de campaña de Trump en nombre de los Rolling Stones que el uso no autorizado de sus canciones constituirá una violación de su acuerdo de licencia. Si Donald Trump ignora la exclusión y persiste, enfrentaría una demanda por romper el trato y utilizar música no autorizada."

The first time that The Rolling Stones they warned Trump, it was during the 2016 campaign; however, they were ignored. On this occasion, the president's team decided to use "You Can't Always Get What You Want", during the rallies in recent weeks, which led to the legal threat.

The Stones are not the first artists to speak out against Trump and his use of music during his campaign, because in recent days the family of Tom petty and Brendon Urie of Panic At The Disco did the same.

Until now, the team of Donald trump has not answered.

Welcome to 2020, apocalypse.

'Parasite Eve' is the first promotional cut of the next album of Bring Me The Horizon, which according to previous declarations of the singer, promises to be "very heavy", leaving behind the trend that his latest albums had presented.

"Parasite Eve came out of the idea of writing a 'survival horror' song, but as the pandemic began to unfold, the parallels were so obvious that it was best to leave them out. As time went on, we began to feel how relevant it was and that instead of avoiding it, we should approach the dark side, embrace it and process what is happening ... " continuous Sykes.

The band's new album does not yet have a name or a stipulated release date, but is expected to see the light before the end of 2020.

Crypta 2020 1 uai

"We are really enjoying this new beginning": Luana Dametto, Crypta

Several weeks have passed since Fernanda Lira and Luana Dametto announced their departure from Nervous, the best-known female thrash band on the planet. However, both put to work and made known Crypta, a Proyect of OldSchool Death Metal in which they have been working since the middle of last year.

We had the opportunity to talk with Luana Dametto about the plans they have with Crypta and the new opportunities and challenges that arise as a drummer in this new adventure.

Crypta emerged almost a year ago, in July 2019, how did the idea of creating this new project emerge?

I always wanted to have a Death Metal band again, it's my favorite metal sub-genre, and Fernanda knew about it and we decided to start a side project with me. We got this project as something that we could challenge ourselves, learn new things and try different directions from what we were already doing, it's always good to refresh and have new things going on. It started as a side project and ended up becoming our main band and work.

Was the selection process for the new members of the band complicated due to the pandemic or did you already have everything planned before?

We didn't have anything planned when we decided to start this project, not even the band name, but as soon as we thought that we needed to find a guitarist, we both talked about Sonia Anubis. We always admired her, not just as a musician, but as a person, so we decided to invite her to join us. After that we needed another guitarist, we tried to search online a bit, and found some girls that we would like to try, but then we received a message from Tainá, asking us if we needed a guitarist, and telling us that she really wanted to be part of a band again and so on. She is brazilian and fits in all the aspects that we were looking for, so it just worked and she joined us.

"It is very comforting to be an example that anyone can play an instrument and make music a career."

The direct question why did you and Fernanda leave Nervosa?

Everything we wanted to say about it we said in our public pronouncements, we wouldn't hide any information from the people that always supported us. There is no specific reason, like "it was this or it was that", being in a band is being in a relationship, just like being married for example, and after some time together things can change, you have a new view of things, you wanna try new things, have new goals, and it's just fair for everyone to had this discussing and move on, we never had a fight and we will for sure play together in many fests, it's honest with the fans and with the three of us.

Apophizys, your first band played Death Metal. Do you think that forming Crypta is a way to go back to your roots?

For sure, I'm actually really happy to be playing Death Metal again, it feels a lot like it felt when I had my first band, and we never really forget our first band, everything is exciting and we wanna do our best. I missed playing some specific things and now I can do it as much as I want with Crypta, my bandmates from Apophizys heard some very early demos and enjoyed what we're doing, we're all enjoying this new start.

You started playing drums very young, at 12 years old. It is increasingly common to see girls involved in extreme music. How does it feel to see them follow your steps?

For me, the best thing that can happen as a female musician is receiving messages from other girls saying that they started playing because they saw me do it. I love to play and although today it has also become my job, I still do it for fun, for passion and the fact that other people are influenced by what I am doing, for me, it is more important than any technique that I can learn or bigger than any festival that I will ever play. As a woman, I know that many girls are told that they are not capable of playing the drums, that it is something "masculine" and most of the time they do not receive the support to obtain their first instrument and start learning. Fortunately, my mother always supported me, but even my teachers at school told me that I would starve if I wanted to be a musician, especially as a woman. It is very comforting to be an example that this is not true and that we are all capable of playing the drums - or any other instrument - and turning music into a career.

You are also very young! You are only 23 years old and you have achieved quite interesting things while positioning your name within the scene, do you consider yourself an example to follow for other women in the industry?

I don't consider myself an example, because I still have so much to learn and to experience, and also because there was so many women before me, doing this in much harsher times for women in the rock/metal scene. I'm happy with what I've done so far, I know I accomplished many things at a young age, but it's what I said before, the best thing that can happen to me is get to know that other women started in this business because they saw me playing somewhere. I don't want to be an example, but I will always be the happiest as long as I get to be someone's influence to start. Just like a few drummers where my reason to start, it's cool to be someone's reason too.

What are your short and medium term plans with Crypta?

Right now we just wanna finish our songs and record our first album, we can't wait to do it, but unfortunately we're stuck due to the pandemic, we all need to travel to be able to record, so I hope this pandemic is over or at least more under control by the end of this year. Second thing, we wanna start touring, we're receiving so many emails with offers to play in different countries, so right after recording the album we will be touring around.

Switching from Nervosa thrash to Crypta Death, is this an opportunity for you to showcase a whole new range of skills and how you play drums?

In Downfall of Mankind we were kind of hurrying to write the songs and record, because we were so full of tours and other commitments going on, so I just played things that were inside my comfort zone, I did my best at the time and my drumming was all based in things that I knew I would be able to record without a problem or without any editing. With Crypta, we are giving time to time and I'm having much more time to learn as I write, I'm putting things that weren't really tight two years ago, and that I'm much more comfortable now, and also adding things that I just learned, so I can practice while playing the songs and having some fun. I'm sure that this album will be more challenging for me, and that our second album, will be even more, that's the goal.

You were part of the last festival before the end of the world, Hell and Heaven. Did you think at the time that the situation would become so critical?

I must confess that I never heard about it before, but I searched and it looks very funny, haha. If this pandemic keeps going strong like it is in Brazil right now, I would totally be up to a drive-in concert, haha, we would be a very very different experience, that's for sure.

You signed a new contract with Napalm Records ...

Napalm always worked very well with Nervosa, and we never had anything to complain about. After Fernanda and I left the band, they found out about the existence of Crypta, so they contacted us to find out more about it. Although we weren't able to show any of our music, when we announced Crypta we got a huge response online, which was surprising to us and Napalm offered to release our first album. They have already listened to our demos, they know how everything will sound and we are very happy to collaborate with them again.

What do you think about Drive-In concerts? Would you consider it as an option for Crypta?

I must confess that I had never heard of that before, but I searched and it looks very funny [laughs]. If this pandemic remains as strong as it is in Brazil at the moment, I would be totally willing to try the option [laughs]. It would be a totally different experience, that's for sure.

Ozzy Osbourne, Robert Plant, Trent Reznor and more team up to save independent venues

After the COVID-19 pandemic that has hit the world, one of the industries that has been most affected is entertainment, putting the livelihoods of thousands of people around the planet at risk.

That is why a large number of artists have come together to send a letter to the United States Congress requesting financial support and to ensure that independent venues can continue to function and free the threat of bankruptcy.

Among the activists we can find big names within the industry, such as Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, Ozzy Osbourne, the ex-Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant, Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters, Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Ageas well as members of bands like Cannibal Corpse, Ministry or Halestorm, in addition to hundreds of others. You can see the original letter and the complete list of signatories, here.

"We, the undersigned artists, respectfully present this letter in support of the Association of Independent Venues' application for federal aid to independent music venues and promoters in the United States.

We will know that the United States will be "back" when our venues are full of fans enjoying their concerts safely. The experience of live music is inextricably linked to the cultural and economic fabric of our nation. In fact, the 53% of Americans, or 172 million of us, attended a concert last year.

It is urgent to remember that we are the nation that gave jazz, country, rock & roll, bluegrass, hip hop, metal, blues and R&B to the world. Entertainment is America's largest economic export, with songs written and produced by American artists being performed everywhere in the world. All of these genres of music, and the artists behind them, were able to thrive because they had independent venues to play and hone their craft, build an audience, and become the artists who would later bring joy to millions.

Independent venues give artists a place to start. These locations were the first to close and will be the last to reopen. With zero income and the overwhelming burden of paying rent, mortgages, utilities, taxes and insurance, the 90% of places knows that if the shutdown lasts six months and they don't receive federal aid, they will never be able to reopen. "

As of this publication, there is no response from Congress to the request.
