A brand new Sevendust song called "Till Death" is streaming at the official website of the Grammy Awards, of all places. The track comes off the band's ninth studio album, Black Out The Sun, which arrives on Tuesday (March 26th) via Sevendust's own 7Bros. Records label. Check it out!
Device, the new band fronted by Disturbed singer David Draiman, has posted a new song called "You Think You Know" online for streaming via Soundcloud. The track is taken from Device's self-titled debut disc, which arrives on April 9th and features guest appearances from Avenged Sevenfold singer M. Shadows, System Of A Down vocalist Serj Tankian, Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello, Halestorm singer Lzzy Hale, Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler and ex-Deep Purple bassist Glenn Hughes.
Draiman launched Device last year with ex-Filter guitarist Geno Lenardo, after Disturbed went on hiatus in late 2011. He told us that he expects Device to be around for a long time: ["This is something that I intend to devote as much attention to as I do Disturbed, that it deserves as much of me in its own right during its time. I think that there will always be time for both. I intend to keep Device around. I like what it has become. I like what it can become. I like the freedom that it offers. I like starting over."] SOUNDCUE (:23 OC: . . . like starting over.)

The album's cover artwork can be seen below.
"We made a unique record that's completely different from anything we ever did," ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell tells RollingStone.com. "It encapsulates a period of time, like all records do. You see growth and that the band is moving ahead in new territory that we haven't been to before, but we haven't lost our identity."
He added: "There's some real filth in there. That's intentional, and that's also just how we sound together. We're trying to make a record that we dig and we're trying to keep the bar high for ourselves and see if we can get past it, and I think that we did again. And of course you want people to dig it too and to respond to it, and to have that start happening is satisfying."

Benedict “Sherlock” Cumberbatch really dislikes us — or at least our futuristic descendants, in the new Star Trek Into Darkness trailer that hit the web. You can give it a watch.
Cumberbatch is already scary with that deep velvety voice of his — he is going to be Smaug, after all — but now we get some more screen time of him sporting a badass longcoat, which is standard-issue for sci-fi bad guys andgood guys, even as he scolds Starfleet for perceived crimes and tells us that he’ll walk over our “cold corpses.”
There are explosions, people falling from impossible heights that they surely can’t survive, and some punching. Exactly what you expect from a move trailer.
This song is from "Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies" due in stores on 4/9.
Staind guitarist Mike Mushok has joined Newsted, the new heavy rock project assembled and fronted by former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted. The latter made the announcement by posting a video online revealing Mushok as the newest member of the group, which also includes Jesus Mendez Jr. on drums and Jessie Farnsworth on guitar. That trio released a debut EP titled Metal earlier this year.
Here’s an amazing fact – one in every 20 million men is born without a penis.
Unfortunately, 39-year-old Andrew Wardle is one of them.
But things might be looking up for Andrew, as he is about to undergo a ground-breaking surgery that will take a roll of skin from his forearm and graft it to his pelvis to create the male organ he has desperately tried not to obsess over for his entire life.
“I’ve been told that after a year, and three operations, they will be able to build one that will work in the same way as any other man’s,” Wardle said. “If it’s a success, I can finally start living like a normal man. Things like having sex and starting a family, something which so many people take for granted, could actually become a possibility.”
So, if you’re ever feeling like you’ve got problems, remember Andrew Wardle. He’s living proof that things could be far, far worse. (Daily Mail)
