Diecast - Formed in 1997 Diecast quickly established a name for themselves in
the Boston metal/hardcore scene. With their unique brand of aggressive riffing,
signature breakdowns and vocal hooks Diecast knew they had the workings of a
true powerhouse.

In February 2001 Diecast released their critically acclaimed full length "Day
Of Reckoning" that illustrates the band's evolution. They recorded the album
down in
Miami, FL with producer Paul Trust (Endo, Dracula 2000 Soundtrack).

Diecast has played nonstop nationwide (in 2001 they played over 150 shows).
The band has toured with Napalm Death, God Forbid, Dying Fetus and All Out War
just to name a few. Diecast are preparing to conquer not only every stage they
set foot
on, but the world. Get ready to be cast into the mold known as Diecast.

Just remember who always brings you the "Sickest New Shit First"!!!

"Bringing You The Sickest New Shit First" News!

Queen Of The Issues
Korn frontman Jonathan Davis co-wrote and recorded five songs for the upcoming film "Queen Of The Damned", with former Oingo Boingo keyboardist Richard Gibbs. The tracks include:
"Slept So Long"
"Not Meant For Me"
However, the songs will not feature Davis' voice as a result of contractual problems, and will instead feature those of Jeff Scott Soto, who received tutelage from Davis for the parts. The material will be featured on the forthcoming Soundtrack to the film, which is expected out mid to late in February, around the same time the movie hits theaters.
Whats so great about it if Jon D. isn't singing? He rules when he sings and its not with KoRn! I mean KoRn is ok.. but when he is singing with others is when something happens!

New Old Special
Limp Bizkit's MTV special for their forthcoming remix outing, "New Old Songs", will debut on MTV this Sunday, December 02nd. The album itself will follow, landing in stores through Flip/Interscope on December 04th. In related news, band frontman Fred Durst and former guitarist Wes Borland will be appearing in an upcoming documentary on Pauly Shore entitled "You'll Never Wiez In This Town Again", due out next year. Other appearances set to be featured in the film include Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray, Tommy Lee of Methods Of Mayhem, Snoop Dogg and more.
Umm... So now they are going to make money ($$$) by making fun of Wes leaving the band by making a documentary? What the hell is up with that?
