YouTube Finds Goatwhore’s “Apocalyptic Havoc” Video Objectionable After 10 Years

After ten years on the platform, Goatwhore’s video for their track ‘Apocalyptic Havoc’ has been demonetized on YouTube’s platform over not being suitable for all advertisers. This is laughable as the video has been on the channel for over a decade, as the track was the first single from Goatwhore’s universally acclaimed 2009 album, Carving Out The Eyes of God (Metal Blade). As of today, the clip has 1,138,058 views with 11k likes against 420 dislikes. Who was the ad being served to, if not relevant viewers (metalheads, Goatwhore fans, Satan worshippers) that would find this killer clip offensive? As long as a band such as Goatwhore, globally respected and undeniably great can draw this kind of red flag, heavy music will continue to be outsider music for outsider fans. Turn it up to eleven as you watch the clip! Continue reading

REVIEW: Psycho Las Vegas 2019 – Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino

As far as large multi-day fests go, Psycho Las Vegas is still pretty wet behind the ears having only just had their fourth annual incarnation this August but already it has begun growing into what will likely continue to be the summer juggernaut of partying and music. New this year, to the dismay of many, was the location change from the off the strip and perfectly themed haunt, The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, to the megaplex that is Mandalay Bay. Gone is the feeling of a true fest take over and in its place, a sprawling amalgamation of “psychos” and people from any town USA or abroad there simply to gamble, throw pre-wedding bashes, get drunk or maybe attend a conference (*ahem* “conference”). Once everyone got their bearings and navigated through this corporate mega casino/hotel/shopping mall, pushed back a few drinks or whatever preferred substances they were into, and found the locations of the four stages, the complaining ebbed and instead, people experienced the fest for what it is. A gigantic party with a great combination of bands playing for four days.Continue reading
