DMC And Wayne Static of Static-X Join Forces To Shoot Video For New Track “Noise Revolution”

DMC of the legendary RUN-DMC and Wayne Static will be shooting a video for a new track entitled “Noise Revolution” in the coming weeks. DMC, one of the pioneers of Hip Hop music is also credited as being the first to blend rock with rap most notably with a RUN-DMC rendition of “Walk This Way” by Aerosmith which also featured vocals by Steven Tyler. Once again DMC looks to break new ground by synthesizing the industrial sound of Wayne Static’s undeniable vocal approach with his trail blazing rap style. The video will be directed by Matt Zane (Wayne Static, Zakk Wylde, Orgy, Society 1, Annihilated)

“The Noise Revolution song and video is a powerful statement that shows that our art and creativity is the most important representation of the people. Working with Wayne Static and Matt Zane to knock down walls and bring people together with a positive message is inspiring and empowering!” said DMC

Wayne Static is no stranger to combining different styles and is known for the creation of “Evil Disco” and when the chance to work with one of the all time great Hip Hop artists presented itself there was absolutely no hesitation.

“The opportunity to work with a legend like DMC was a great honor and an experience like no other. We performed onstage together in Austin a while back and I hope we have more opportunities to perform together again.” said Wayne

Wayne also went on to explain how he has always been in favor of combining different genres of music.

“I have always believed combining different genres of music is a great way to create exciting new sounds. In fact I’ve based most of my career on combining unexpected styles in innovative ways. This collaboration with DMC is a prime example of how we can break through traditional expectations of Metal and Rap to create a bad ass new sound, and that is really the theme of the song for me as well. This song is a “Noise Revolution!”

Matt Zane was even in awe to be presented with opportunity to direct the video.

“I was all about The Doors, Van Halen, King Diamond and RUN-DMC when I was growing up. When DMC flew out to Los Angeles to meet I couldn’t believe I was sitting across the table from him discussing concepts for something I was going to direct. I was trying to keep it together but really my mind was going crazy. I didn’t want to let on that I was such a huge fan and had all the records. ” said Zane

Stay tuned to see the “Noise Revolution” in late June.


Korn on mission to find cure for diabetes posted:

The members of Grammy-winning hometown heroes Korn will be preparing to head overseas for the European leg of their current concert tour when the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation holds a wine and food event in Bakersfield June 1.

But they will be there in spirit and, better yet, a piece of history that has huge significance to any Korn fan will go home with the highest bidder: the guitar played by Brian Welch at the recent concert marking his return to the band after an absence of eight years.

“And all four of the original band members — my brother, Brian, Reggie (Arvizu) and James (Shaffer) — signed it,”  said Alyssa Davis, who has a small role in planning the event for a very compelling reason:

Zeppelin Davis, her 6-year-old nephew, who has Type 1 diabetes. Zeppelin is the son of Korn frontman Jonathan Davis and his wife, Deven, whose lives changed instantly upon learning of the diagnosis, said Alyssa Davis.

“They’re really trying to raise money to help find a cure for these kids, who are being diagnosed so young,” she said. “It’s a life changer. I had no idea that for a child going through it, what it entails. You change everything.”

Beyond the dietary changes and other lifestyle accommodations, their son’s struggle has prompted the Davises to become deeply involved in raising funds for research, as they’re doing with the 2013 Summer Wine Fest on June 1.

The evening promises to be a delight for food and wine lovers, with hors d’oeuvres and desserts served by Luigi’s Restaurant, the Padre, J&M Cafe, Dewar’s, Chef’s Choice Noodle Bar, Borda Petite Catering, Mexicali, The Mark, Cafe Med, Sweet Surrender, Lassen’s and new-to-Bakersfield restaurant Wiki’s Wine Dive & Grill.

Participating vineyards and breweries include Marchesi Antinori, Constellation Brands, the Estates Group, Epic Wines, Mastro Scheidt Family Cellars, Stella Artois Beer and more.

Entertainment will be provided by Grammy-winning R&B performer Tony Rich, whose biggest hit is the 1996 single “Nobody Knows.” Also performing will be Bakersfield-based band Mystic Red.

In addition to the signed Korn guitar, interesting auction items include lunch with U.S. Rep. Kevin McCarthy in Washington, D.C., and a “wild pig hunt” donated by Tejon Ranch. All proceeds will be donated to research for a cure for Type 1 diabetes and for local support groups that help children and teens.

Tickets are $65 in advance and $75 at the door. Space is limited at the event, which runs from 6 to 11 p.m. at Fleur De Lis, 424 24th St. For information or to buy tickets, call 636-1305 or visit

Slayer star Jeff Hanneman died of alcohol-related liver scarring

(Reuters) – Guitarist Jeff Hanneman of the seminal heavy metal band Slayer died of alcohol-related cirrhosis of the liver, and not as a result of a flesh-eating bacteria, the remaining members of the U.S. band said.

Hanneman, a founder of the band, which was known for its fast tempo, dark themes and pounding drums, died last week at age 49 in Southern California after suffering liver failure.

The band issued the statement on Thursday clarifying the cause of Hanneman’s death following speculation that necrotizing fasciitis, a rare flesh-eating infection he believed he had contracted in 2011 through a spider bite, contributed to the “Raining Blood” guitarist’s death.

“While he had his health struggles over the years, including the recent necrotizing fasciitis infection that devastated his well-being, Jeff and those close to him were not aware of the true extent of his liver condition until the last days of his life,” the band said in a statement posted on its website.

The band said Hanneman was never on a list waiting for a liver transplant and his health had appeared to be improving recently as the band readied to work on a new album.

Slayer, which Hanneman founded with fellow guitarist Kerry King in the early 1980s, was known as one of the “big four” thrash metal groups of the decade, along with Anthrax, Megadeth and Metallica.

Hanneman wrote many of the best known songs, including “Angel of Death” on Slayer’s landmark 1986 album “Reign of Blood.”
