Keith Caputo Sex Change? Life Of Agony over? Know the facts!

Apparently various media outlets out there want to misinform the public just so they can get attract eyeballs. While this is nothing new in the media world, here at Horns Up Rocks we believe in checking your sources before writing anything at all, since we believe in responsible journalism.

First of all, we have confirmation from many sources close to the band that Keith Caputo, singer from Life Of Agony, did NOT get a sex change. Yes he likes dressing like a women, and yes he likes putting make up on. But so did Dennis Rodman! And did he get a sex change? We think not! In case you don't know, transsexualism is an individual's identification with a gender inconsistent or not culturally associated with their biological sex. It has NOTHING to do with undergoing a sex change operation!

Here is a Twit by Keith Caputo that helped create this ridiculous rumor:

"M2F transexuals like mê are the women who give up male privilege for femininity! Threaten the patriarchy!" (July 7 at 11:34 PM)

But then a few days later Caputo twitted this:

"Dying to make love to my lady. Haven't seen her in 2 months. Dying to hold her & be held. Never letting her go. Just a few more days. The Art Of Love!" (July 12 at 1:36 AM)

Second of all, when we interviewed Life Of Agony's guitarist Joey Zampella earlier this year (video interview below), he told us that they have been talking about writing some new songs but that they will do it when the time is right since all of the band members are busy with other projects. Again, it was a Twit by Caputo that caused the rumor that the band is calling it a day:

"Off to Europe tomorrow, 7pm. Most likely our last..." (July 12 at 11:49 AM)

Life Of Agony will be performing in Europe this weekend!

- 7/15: Kantine in Augsburg, DE
- 7/16: Dour Festival in Dour, BE
- 7/17: Zwarte Cross Festival in Lichtenvoorde, NL

Aren't rock-stars suppose to be outrageous, wild, and say things that cause controversy? In the wise words of Max Cavalera: DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ!

The Roots Bloody Roots of Erik Rutan from Hate Eternal!

This past weekend we had the privilege of seeing Hate Eternal perform live and loud at Santos Party House, alongside Origin, Vital Remains and Abysmal Dawn! Prior to the show we interviewed Erik Rutan about his extensive career as a Death Metal musician and as a Heavy Music producer. While we had always heard great things about Rutan, it was refreshing to find out that he is one of the most humble and professional Death Metal musicians out there. During the interview we discussed Hate Eternal's newest album "Phoenix Amongst the Ashes", as well as his work with other bands like Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Nile, Agnostic Front and Madball, just to name a few.

During the conversation we also discussed how Rutan was transplanted from New Jersey into Florida, in order to establish himself as a big player within the Death Metal scene. Buckle up and enjoy this exclusive interview which features live footage of Hate Eternal as well as some bad-ass pictures! ENJOY! \m/

Bass Players Gone Wild! Michael Todd and Nick Oliveri Arrested for being Jackasses!

This week a couple of Heavy Music bass players were on the headlines for behaving like jackasses! The worst week ever for bass players started when Michael Todd from Coheed and Cambria was arrested after he allegedly held up a Walgreens by claiming he had a bomb! Then Nick Oliveri former bassist from Kyuss and Queens Of The Stone, was arrested after battling with a S.W.A.T. team at his Los Angeles home. What lead these two bassists to behave so erratically? Was it because they wanted to steal the spotlight for once? Here is what happened.

According to the Attleboro, MA Police, Michael Todd showed a Walgreens pharmacist a note on his cell phone which said he had a bomb and that he wanted some Oxycontin. Oxycontin! Really? Then to make matters worse, he fled the scene via taxi with six bottles of pain pills. Police arrested him without any incidents outside of the Comcast Theater where Coheed and Cambria were scheduled to open up for Soundgarden (the band performed without him). He was charged with armed robbery and unlawful possession of prescription narcotics. He is being held on $10,000 bail and will be arraigned on Monday morning.

On the other hand, Nick Oliveri tried subduing the Police after they arrived at the bassists home after the neighbors reported a “disturbance”. According to Police, Oliveri's girlfriend said that she left the apartment after he had struck her the day before. When she came back to get her things out of the apartment and leave Oliveri behind, they got into a heated argument and Oliveri wouldn't let her leave. To make matters worse, Oliveri didn't allow Police to come into the house so they decided to call in a S.W.A.T. team. After a couple of hours, Oliveri allowed his girlfriend to leave and he ended up turning himself in a few hours later. Once inside the apartment, the cops found a loaded rifle. Oliveri was booked on felony domestic violence, but was released after posting $100,000 bail.

Bassists, please go wild on stage and with the groupies only! \m/

Corey Taylor Releases "Seven Deadly Sins" in the US + Part 2 of Interview with Jim Florentine

Corey Taylor from Slipknot and Stone Sour, released today his first book ever! The book is called "Seven Deadly Sins", and the reader will find that Taylor twisted this controversial theme and defended through personal facts why he thinks that the seven deadly sins are bullshit!

“I’ve been threatening to write a book for a long time, but since every Tom, Dick and Harry writes an autobiography, I didn’t want to just do that. My approach to writing is the same as my approach to music: I don’t want to do what everybody else is doing.” - Corey Taylor

“Seven Deadly Sins” is out today (July 12) in the US and July 14 in the U.K.

Our good friend Jim Florentine from VH1 Classic's That Metal Show, conducted an in depth interview with Taylor about his new book titled "Seven Deadly Sins", his life and of course, his music. This is the second part of the interview. Part three will be available on July 19.

Anthrax "Worship Music" Cover Art Unveiled + NEW song Available on iTunes

After eight years of patiently waiting for some new Anthrax music, Anthrax's global fan-base are finally getting to quench their thirst with some new music by New York's Thrash Metal legends. Their new album "Worship Music" (drops on September 13: the day before the band plays The Big 4 show at Yankee Stadium) is the most anticipated record of 2011. "Worship Music" also marks the return of Joey Belladonna on vocals, who is singing with Anthrax for the first time since 1990's "Persistence of Time". What a way for the band to celebrate its 30th anniversary!

Today the band has announced that the first single out of "Worship Music" titled "Fight 'em 'Til You Can't" has just gone on sale at iTunes. They have also revealed that the cover art of "Worship Music" was created by renowned comic book artist Alex Ross, who has worked with Marvel Comics and DC Comics and is known for his "Marvels," "Kingdom Come," and "Astro City" illustrations. Ross also did the original artwork for Anthrax's "We've Come For You All" and "Music of Mass Destruction" albums. Here is the cover art for "Worship Music".

The "classic Anthrax-sounding" "Fight 'em 'Til You Can't" is a song about killing zombies, and is the one new track that Anthrax - Belladonna, guitarists Scott Ian and Rob Caggiano, drummer Charlie Benante and bassist Frank Bello - has played live since they Belladonna rejoined the line-up a year ago. Anthrax offered the track as a free download last month, and fan comments in chat rooms have been overwhelmingly ecstatic.

"This album is fucking amazing! Metal album of the year so far! Congratulations. Just killer." - Eddie Trunk (VH1 Classic's That Metal Show)

Anthrax will play the Heavy T.O. Festival in Toronto on July 23, and the Heavy MTL festival in Montreal on July 24.

Death Metal Paradise/Hell at the Hate Eternal, Origin, Vital Remains & Abysmal Dawn show in New York City!

This past Sunday (July 10), Death Metal titans Hate Eternal were joined by the mighty Origin, Vital Remains and Abysmal Dawn, for one of the best Death Metal shows that has ever taken place at Santos Party House in New York City. From the moment we arrived and heard Hate Eternal's sound-check, we knew that it was going to be a great night full of headbanging, cold beers, crowd-surfing, windmilling, and lots of mosh-pitting! This show once again is proof that the New York City Heavy Music scene is RISING!

From the moment the show started with Abysmal Dawn from Los Angeles, California, the crowd lost their minds, and some even lost their shoes!

After the crowd had a chance to catch their breaths, drink a cold beer, and smoke a stoge... Vital Remains from Providence, Rhode Island, took center stage and made Santos Party House rock like a hurricane!

Then it was time for Origin from Topeca, Kansas, to tear up the entire place! During their entire set crowd-surfers from all ages and races, surfed over and over again on top of a sea of people! To say that Origin warmed the crowd up for Hate Eternal is an understatement!

Without losing any time, Hate Eternal from St. Petersburg, Florida, stepped on stage with the arduous task of following a ferocious set by Origin. Lead by Erik Rutan, Hate Eternal always fly the Death Metal flag with full power and might! The adrenalized crowd growled Rutan's lyrics with so much passion, that right after the show was over Rutan says to us: "Holy shit! This is the best show of the tour! I just want to end the tour now, because it wont get any better than this!" We have an exclusive interview with Erik Rutan coming very soon, so stay tuned!
