Five Finger Death Punch - The Ivan Moody situation seems to get a little stranger. Moody came down with a “terrible Flu” and had to sit out the band’s Metallica date on Aug 27 in LA. Filling in for him was Phil Labonte, Howard Jones, and Fire From the Gods’ frontman AJ Channer. 
Rammstein - Germany has dropped their investigation of Till Lindemann. Basically it boils down to the legal system found that the allegations were only brought AFTER YT’ers connected dots and the accusers based their accusations on THAT and not their own memories. 

New Music/Video
Asking Alexandria - Let Go I want to like these guys… but their move to “active rock” is disappointing.
Spiritbox - Jaded The Fear of Fear EP set for release on Nov 3. Video-wise the shooting must have been crazy with all those mirrors.
Carnifex - Death’s Forgotten Children (feat Tom Barber from Chelsea Grin) from the album, Necromanteum, out October 6, 2023. Carnifex is quality Deathcore. The RBS is strong with this one.
Oni - Aura (feat. Howard Jones) Previous single featured Randy Blythe and Iggy Pop. More of their signature sound. Metalcore with a softer side.
Job for a Cowboy - The Agony Seeping Storm Deathcore Originators bring heat. RBS not an issue here!
Dying Wish - Lost in the Fall Metalcore is alive and well! Bring on the soar-y chorus.
Callous Daoboys - Waco Jesus God Smiles Upon The Callous Daoboys – Available October 20. Moving passed the Dillinger comparisons? Exploring their melodic side.
Imminence - Heaven Shall Burn Swedish melodic death metal? Whatever these guys are GREAT!
