MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee tweeted the following last night:

“Hey @BLABBERMOUTHNET Whats if feel like to be the worst site ever? Yeah its me again and ya’ll still suck ass!!” He added: “Oh yeah and bring on the haters….i mean admirers!!!”

Back in February 2012, Lee was similarly enthused about BLABBERMOUTH.NET, writing on his Twitter account: “@BLABBERMOUTHNET has got to be THE WORST music site ever! maybe its not the site but the assholes that post there!”

In January 2011, Lee posted a message on Twitter congratulating BLINK-182 drummer and hip-hop producer Travis Barker on the release of his album, “Give The Drummer Some”, and slamming BLABBERMOUTH.NET “haters” who made comments that were critical of the CD’s musical content and cover artwork. Lee wrote, “Travis! Congrats on the new CD and [by the way]… FUCK all the haters at [sic]. They can suck it! They did the same shit to me!”

MÖTLEY CRÜE kicked off its second residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on September 18. The fall shows, dubbed “Evening In Hell”, are an all-new production designed exclusively for The Joint in partnership with AEG Live.

“A Public Disservice Announcement”, the latest album from Lee‘s METHODS OF MAYHEM project, sold 2,900 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 153 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released in September 2010 via Loud & Proud Records, a Roadrunner Records imprint focusing on established artists.

When analyzing subtleties in the nature-themed black metal powerhouse from Washington, Wolves in the Throne Room for reviewing, you cannot give any album from these guys a cursory once over and expect all that needs to be absorbed to come to fruition. With every WITTR album, including the latest, Celestial Lineage from Southern Lord Records, a deep, introspective odyssey is necessary in order to provide the necessary word placement to critique aa piece of art, that the practitioners clearly put a lot of heart and soul into. With that said, Celestial Lineage is likely to be overrated for one of two reasons: one, because they are an American black metal band who makes “North American” black metal. They are not carbon copies of the European scene, this is wholly American black metal with a certain atmosphere and folk vibe that is an American creation (see Agalloch as another regional favorite that interprets some of the same aspects of the music). Second, the non-metal portions of Celestial Lineage are out of this world amazing. If this were an Arcana release, it would be off the charts, but since this is a primarily a black metal release, simply looking at the beauty behind the non-metal portions, and overlooking the metal parts, does the band a disservice, and reviewers need to be aware of that.

So, what makes Celestial Lineage overrated, and not an album that should realistically reach expectations? Quite simply, the black metal portions are just not that creative or inspirational. I have heard that, lyrically, this band is completely on point, but as a man who usually could care less about lyrical content, this tends to go over my head admittedly. In terms of raw musical emotion though, WITTR come up short with their metal riffs. This is fairly paint by numbers black metal, to the point where I was left wondering when the next interesting non-metallic interlude would interrupt the monotony of the blackened aural discourse. There is no connection between the heavy aspects, and the beautiful interludes that some of the French bands these days are mastering, and when an attempt is made for the band to meld melodies into the harshness, it just comes up sounding forced.

Overall, Celestial Lineage is a logical step for WITTR, and while I have some reservations fully supporting the metallic aspects of the record, it’s still a solid piece of art, that any fan of the band will likely enjoy. Much like the current obsession surrounding Skyrim, the latest Elder Scrolls video game, I just don’t get the hype of Celestial Lineage; it has all the makings of a memorable album, but it just doesn’t stick with me.

Call To Preserve has announced that it will disband. The group released the following statement:

“After eight years, three full-lengths and countless tours all over, Call to Preserve is calling it quits. For the past year or so we’ve done our best to keep functioning as a band despite losing members and having remaining members cut back their involvement. Now all of us are being pulled in different directions and our aspirations for our future have expanded much further than being on tour all the time. With some of us moving away, going back to school or starting careers, we just can’t sacrifice our time to this band like we used to. It would be a disservice to ourselves to do CTP half heartedly, so instead we want to go out on a high note and enjoy our last few months as a band.
