    Rap-Metal is Back...and It's Good

    Metal is an ever-turning and twisting genre, following wormholes into subgenres and melding any and all techniques and sounds along the way in a constant struggle to create something new and original.

    Breaking Down Limp Bizkit's Awesomely Bad New Video

    Okay, okay, I know what you're thinking. A new Limp Bizkit video? Is this 1999? No, my friends, this is 2013: the year of the nostalgia act.
