Motley Crue Announce Retirement
  |  @   |  

They’ve been hinting at this for a while now, but today the bad boys of rock Motley Crue officially announced their retirement and final tour.

The news was released today during a press conference in Los Angeles, which is currently in progress. Before the band came out on stage, each of the four musicians — Nikki Sixx (bass), Tommy Lee (drums), Vince Neil (vocals), Mick Mars (guitars) — were represented on stage by their own miniature tombstome, each reading “RIP” with their name.

The news so far is that there will be 72 shows in the United States and Canada and that will be the last and final tour ever for Motley Crue, and they will supposedly sign a “binding document.” General sale for tickets for the final tour is this Friday, with some tickets going on sale this Saturday. Some of the tickets will be priced at a mere $15 to make it affordable to more people.

Listen To This French Electronic Black Metal Version Of Slayer’s ‘Seasons In The Abyss’
  |  @   |  

Now that I’ve spent my entire afternoon listening to lullabied rock songs, it’s time to dedicate my evening to French Black/Industrial metal (obviously).

Apparently, there’s this band CNK (which currently stands for The Cosa Nostra Klub; it seems they like to change the name periodically), which is described as a “French martial industrial/electronic black metal,” who are fronted by former Anorexia Nervosa singer Nicolas St Morand (aka Mr Hreidmarr). They recently caught my attention because their third studio effort, Révisionnisme, is a covers album with songs like Motley Crue‘s “Too Fast For Love,” The Beastie Boys‘ “Sabotage,” and Slayer‘s “Seasons In The Abyss.” (See full track listing here below.)

You can listen to CNK’s covers of “Seasons In The Abyss” and “Too Fast For Love” here below.

Music Review: Motley Crue – Greatest Hits

Motley Crue
Greatest Hits
U.S.: CD | MP3
UK: CD | MP3
Eleven Seven Music
Release date: December 5, 2011 (UK)

This year marked 30 years since the release of Motley Crue‘s debut album Too Fast For Love. After that record hit in 1981 the years have been packed with tragedy and infamy (with a sex tape or two thrown in) for the Crue. But in that time they, somehow, continued to make great music, most of which is compiled on this Motley Crue: Greatest Hits package.

The tracks are in chronological order beginning with the untamed “Too Fast For Love” to the more production heavy efforts of the fabulous “Dr. Feelgood” and “Home Sweet Home.” All of the most famous songs are on here and even the not-so-famous and more recent works like “Afraid,” “Saint Of Los Angeles,” “Sick Love Song,” and “If I Die Tomorrow.” Even those people with only a passing knowledge of Motley Crue would at least be familiar with a handful of tracks. Everybody knows “Smokin’ In The Boys Room” and “Shout At The Devil”!
