METALLICA is offering its own contribution to “ugly Christmas sweater,” a ubiquitous feature of the holiday season which began to sprout up in the last several decades.

“Ugly Christmas sweater” or “tacky Christmas sweater” parties have been a holiday staple for several years, but there have been very few places to actually buy these sweaters. That has since changed, according to Time magazine, which reports that vintage stores, the Salvation Army, and Goodwill are reaping the benefits of this craze, as are fast-fashion shops like H&M and high-end retailers such as Nordstrom.

The METALLICA “ugly Christmas sweater” will be available from the band’s official online store.

Christmas sweaters are a big deal in the metal community now, I guess. Maybe ironically, maybe sincerely, we even included them in our Holiday Gift Guide last year. Metallica caught wind of this and they'll be releasing their own Christmas sweaters.  I gotta say, of all the shitty sweaters, these do look really good. The …

Tool: Opiate to the masses

So, remember back in Feb when Tool drummer Danny Carey said there will definitely be a new Tool album this year? And then frontman Maynard James Keenan said soon after that there were no actual songs written? Well, ol’ Danny’s piped up again with some fairly positive news, suggesting that the album looks set to be wrapped up this year, with an early 2014 release looking pretty likely.

“It’s still the three of us [Carey, guitarist Adam Jones and bassist Justin Chancellor] right now and [we will be joined by singer Maynard James Keenan] soon, you know, just working on all our parts and working on our compositions together,” he tells Loudwire. “Stylistically, we’re trying to push things in different ways, but it always comes out sounding like Tool no matter what we’re trying to do. We’re working everyday on it and it’s going really well, so I’m hoping we’ll get into the studio by the end of the year.”

“I doubt it [will be released in 2013],” he adds. “Right now, since we haven’t started tracking stuff at this point, it’ll be hard. We could have the record finished by the end of the year — that’s a possibility, but the logistics of getting it manufactured and getting the record company in line and all this stuff, I doubt we’ll be able to get it out before Christmas. We’ll see how it goes. Most likely, it’ll be early 2014.”

AS USUAL PLEASE TAKE ALL THIS WITH A PINCH OF SALT. You know how this goes…
