Metal Insider posted this but it’s a christmas card sent out to the fan club members of Iron Maiden that possibly hints a new album and tour in 2014.
Their last studio album The Final Frontier came out in 2010.
Today (Dec. 8th) is the anniversary of former Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell’s tragic death. It was ten years ago that Nathan Gale walked into the back of the Alrosa Nightclub in Columbus, OH, went on stage where the band Damageplan had just started their set, took out a gun and shot the legendary metal guitarist and longtime road-crew member Mayhem to death. This weekend in the Hangar we will celebrate his life and crank up Pantera as loud as it will go. For now enjoy some old school interviews and appearances from Dimebag.

Megadeth are no strangers to different line-ups. Dave Mustaine has had a bevy of different players over the years in Megadeth but the current line up of Dave Mustaine, David Ellefson, Chris Broderick, and Shawn Drover seemed to be the most solid line-up since the 90’s line-up that featured Marty Friedman and Nick Menza.
“Due to artistic and musical differences, it is with great reluctance that I announce my departure from Megadeth to pursue my own musical direction.
“I want all of you to know how much I appreciate the amount that you the fans have accepted and respected me as a member of Megadeth for the last seven years, but it is time for me to move on.
“I wish Dave [Mustaine] and everyone in Megadeth all the best.
“I am working on a few things of my own and hope that when they come out, you will all dig it.”
“After 10 years, I have decided to quit Megadeth to pursue my own musical interests.
“I want to thank Dave Mustaine and the entire Megadeth family, as well as thanking all the amazing Megadeth fans around the world!!! I truly appreciate all of you.
“Stay tuned for info on my next musical journey.”
A couple of weeks ago there was a video that took over the world heavy metal on youtube. The video is of a 8 month old baby named Wyatt drumming along to Pantera’s classic “5 Minutes Alone” In case you didn’t see it check it out.
Well Wyatt took the big stage on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to prove that it could be done live.
