So today, Chris Jericho announced on twitter that the music video for Judas off of their new album(yet to come out), will be launching on May 2! I am so excited. What made me more excited was watching the 30 second sample video that Jericho posted on Instagram.
You can check it out here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BTWTIAbFroi/
It really wetted my appetite for new Fozzy tunes. It's been three years since Do You Wanna Start A War came out, but we are finally here. I cannot wait. After watching the video, I've had Judas stuck in my head. Nothing works. I can't stop humming it and singing along. It's so heavy and catchy. Which is good. That's something I expect from Fozzy, and it's something they delivered perfectly. I've watched the video 11 times already, and I can't wait to see what happens in the video. You can't really see too much. All you can see in Chris singing, with two women dancing behind him. Then the rest of the band is playing in the background, including Paul Di Leo!
Yep. He's back. Paul left after their last album, for reasons that were never addressed, but he is back and hasn't lost a step. I can't wait to hear more of what him and Fozzy have in store with this album.
I will be doing another post with my thoughts on the music video when it comes out. Will also be doing a review for the album when it comes out, which will hopefully be soon. The wait is killing me.
I do want to let you know that I will be doing an interview on Monday, and will hopefully get it posted that day. If not, then Tuesday. So look forward to that.
Thanks for reading. Be forever metal.

Hey guys. So I just wanted to give you an update on what I'm working on. I just got word that I will be interviewing Mike Martin, who used to play with Fozzy and Stuck Mojo. I will be conducting the interview here soon and will have it posted ASAP.
I'm also trying to set up when I'm going to interview Vicky Psarakis of The Agonist.
Another thing coming up are my conversations with Stuck Mojo front man Robby J. We will be discussing music topics. Really looking forward to it.
If you guys have any recommendations on who you want me to interview, or maybe a band you want me to check out and review, then tell me in the comments. I also have a twitter account @MJWesney. I would love for you guys to be able to participate. So if you have anything, then let me know.
Thanks for reading. Be forever metal.

Hey guys. Sorry for not blogging for awhile. I've been getting stuff set up and I was also working on my other blog. But I have a band recommendation today.
My recommendation is a band called Hasta La Muerte. I discovered them a couple days ago, and I'm glad I did. This band is led by the one and only Robby J Fonts, who is now the front man for Stuck Mojo. This band is energetic and heavy. I honestly don't have words to describe them, because they're that good. All I can say is, I see why Rich Ward hired Robby. After watching one of Hasta La Muerte's music videos, I was blown away. I love Robby's energy.
If you are looking for some new music, then I would definitely check this band out. To help you out, here is a link to one of their music videos:
Some might find this video offensive, even though it's not. It has a message. The message is explained on Robby's blog The RANTidote. He explained it because MetalSucks. Net described it as offensive and horrible. Here's the link:
Anyway, I think their music is good. It's not for everyone. So check it out if you want, and if you don't, that's your choice.
Thanks for reading guys. Be forever metal.

So Wrestlemania 33 weekend is over. I've got quite a few things to say.
First off; the Hall of Fame was pretty good. I really enjoyed the speeches by DDP and Beth Phoenix. They both really inspired me that night, and gave me the motivation I needed. All the speeches were pretty good, but those two affected me the most.
Second; NXT Takeover Orlando was really good. If you didn't get a chance to check it out, then head over to the network and watch it when you get the chance. The one thing I love about NXT is even if you don't like the wrestlers that are in the match, you end up watching it anyway because everyone on that roster is really talented and can put on some great matches.The match I really enjoyed was the tag team championship match.
Speaking of tag team championship matches. The one at Wrestlemania 33 was amazing! Only because of two words, Hardy Boyz. Yep, the Hardy Boyz are back. I was as shocked as everyone else. I also got really excited. I love the Hardy Boyz in ladder matches. Their ladder matches with Edge and Christian and the Dudley Boyz back in the day were awesome. Anyway, the Hardys are back and they won the tag team championships. This ought to help shape the tag team division, which was must needed.
Also, The Revival from NXT made their debut on Raw last night. So them plus the Hardys should really help this division out, and give us some really good matches.
The biggest thing I want to talk about is the ending to Wrestlemania 33. Literally, the saddest moment in Wrestlemania history for me. If you don't know, The Undertaker retired. Also, he had his last match that night; losing to Roman Reigns. Yeah. Screw you, Vince. What the heck do you see in this pathetic, poor excuse of a wrestler? He is literally the most talentless, hated wrestler in this era. I would rather root for John Cena, and that's saying something, because I don't like Cena.
Anyway, The Undertaker had to retire because he needs a hip replacement. I knew he was going to have to retire soon, being 52 and all, but I was not looking forward to it. I still feel like a part of me is missing. He was my childhood because he was the first wrestler I was introduced to. I loved his matches, his mind games, his storylines(especially the one with Kane), and of course his iconic entrance. So thank you Taker, for everything. Wrestlemania won't be the same without you.
Hopefully he goes into the Hall of Fame next year.
The last thing I want to mention, is what was announced by Vince McMahon on the Raw after Wrestlemania last night. He said that next week there is going to be a superstar shakeup. So here we go again. It sucks because the Hardy Boyz, Finn Balor, and The Revival just showed up on Raw, and could get moved to Smackdown.I really wish they would just rejoin the two brands. It's not doing any good. It sure didn't the first time, and the same goes for this time too.
The one good thing about Raw was that the new GM is Kurt Angle. He has decided to be the goofy GM. Hopefully this doesn't change, because right now he's our only hope.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my thoughts on Wrestlemania weekend. Sorry it was a day late, I was busy setting up my new blog. Plus, I decided I wanted to include Raw from last night in this post.
