There’s more than a few fans who have called out Max Cavalera for exercising a somewhat limited vocabulary over the years. Perhaps that’s why Guardians Of The Galaxy‘s lovable Groot getting a mashup with Sepultura‘s “Roots Bloody Roots” works so well together.

Check out the the below parody, “Groots Bloody Groots“, that was put together by Luke Gibson. Be warned, there is a bit of a spoiler in the clip if you’ve yet to have seen the movie though. (thanks MetalSucks.)

Stick To Your Guns have announced the release date and title for their new album. The group have chosen to christen the effort “Disobedient” and will have it out February 10th on Sumerian Records. Frontman Jesse Barnett said of it:

“Growing up in a world where we are taught to submit, blindly follow and unquestioningly comply, this album is a critique and unlearning of these Stepford mindsets.

Bloodbath Officially Reveal New Vocalist

After months of teases Bloodbath‘s new vocalist has been revealed to be Paradise Lost frontman Nick Holmes. The bands Jonas Renkse (also of Katatonia) said of Holmes‘ addition:

“Ever since I got into Lost Paradise back in 1990, Nick Holmes has been one of my favourite growling vocalists out there. He was always audible and articulate but still deep and definitely morbid. It is a great pleasure to work with him some 25 years later after I was introduced to his thunderous roar!”

Guitarist Anders “Blakkheim” Nyström also offered:

“Little did I expect to be working with the voice behind the death metal classic Lost Paradise, or the genre-defining Gothic and yet here we are decades later, fulfilling another death metal dream. With his sinister and ominous vocal delivery, it’s an absolute pleasure to make Old Nick the bell-ringer in Bloodbath‘s grand morbid funeral!”

Holmes fills the spot vacated by Opeth‘s Mikael Åkerfeldt. Bloodbath‘s first album with Holmes at the head has been titled “Grand Morbid Funeral” and is due in stores November 18th.
