Super7 Toys will release new ReAction figures next week of Slayer and Venom! Slayer’s figure is based on the track “Born of Fire” from 1990’s Seasons In The Abyss (American Recordings) and comes in translucent orange. The Venom figure is the classic mascot in Glow-In-The-Dark green! Pre-orders will go live by mid-week when Super7 usually drops new releases.
Super7 has collaborated with Revelation Records for a new version of the Gorilla Biscuits ReAction Figure and a new pressing of the 7-inch of the GB self-titled release from 1988. Originally shared last year for the 30th anniversary of the band celebrated with a special release show at Coney Island Baby during New York Comic Con 2018, the new version is the red GB mascot figure, and third repressing vinyl. The GB display base is also a 7” large hole adapter which fits the new 30th anniversary 7”. (Then you can place the adapter on the record, the figure on the adapter and play the record with the figure spinning on it!) Lastly, the box set also comes with a 16-page booklet that chronicles the history of recording and releasing this landmark 7” record including many never before heard stories, fact and information about the record. Available on Monday, July 8, 2019 (Exact time to be announced) and this box set will be $60 online at the link below.Continue reading

Last night a horrific terror attack left 22 people dead, and more than 50 people injured after a suspected suicide bomber set off an explosive after Ariana Grande‘s sold out show at Manchester Arena (details). Like many of you, I don’t know much about her music, but what I do know is that her audience is young, and many of those young lives were lost last night.

Like all of us, musicians around the world were appalled at the attack, and we saw many post messages of support and love last night on social media. One of those was Lamb Of God‘s Randy Blythe, who took the time to write out a powerful message in response to the attack that I feel is worth sharing. Continue reading
