Papa Roach Singer Apologizes For Implying Wayne Static Died Of An Overdose

Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix has issued an apology over his initial thoughts regarding the passing of ex-Static-X frontman Wayne Static. Shaddix and others had presumed that Static‘s death was a result of an overdose. Those allegations have repeatedly been denied, including this apparent thinly veiled reply to Shaddix‘s comments made by Static‘s widow, Tera Wray.

Shaddix posted the following apology on his Facebook prior to Wray‘s above-mentioned statement:

“I FEEL TERRIBLE ABOUT MY POST ABOUT WAYNE’S PASSING. I HAD A FEW FRIENDS HIT ME UP AND SAID HE DIED FROM OVERDOSE. I SHOULD HAVE CHECKED MY FACTS FIRST…….. MY HEART GOES OUT TO HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS. MY HEART IS HEAVY. WAYNE I ALWAYS HAD RESPECT FOR YOU AND DIDNT MEAN TO DISRESPECT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY LIKE I DID. IT WASNT MY INTENTIONS. I WILL OWN MY MISTAKE. MAY YOU REST IN PEACE.”

Bloodbath guitarist Anders “Blakkheim” Nyström was asked by thedrinktime.es if he had any new favorite new death metal bands these days, to which he replied:

“New metal bands? Sorry what was that? Ha-ha, well seriously, I don’t really have any favorite new metal bands, I know there are tons of them out there in this oversaturated scene and I can even appreciate and respect them as musicians and performers being good at what they do, but the problem is that the “magic” isn’t there anymore.

Todays scene is more about software, gear and YouTube. People rather talk about Pro Tools plugins than talk about cemeteries and graveyards if you know what I mean? For me that long gone “magic” is 50% of the whole experience with death metal. Luckily, it still exists with all the classic albums released back in the day and they’re just within an arms reach to enjoy at any time.”

Bloodbath will release their new album “Grand Morbid Funeral” on November 18th.

Meshuggah Starting To Work On Material For Next Album

Meshuggah guitarist Mårten Hagström sat in with the Rabid Noise podcast late last month (hear it below) and revealed that the wheels are beginning to turn on the bands next album. Here’s what he said of their progress:

“[We're] mainly just sending stuff back and forth. I’ve been sitting down the last few weeks at home working by himself. I know Tomas has been working a little bit with Dick, but mostly by himself as well. And that’s generally how it goes for us. I mean, it doesn’t get to be, kind of, a band effort until we’ve got something to stand on, some ideas and some half songs here and there that we can all dig into, cool stuff that might make it to the next album.

And then everybody gets into the process and then it gets snowballing from there, it gets bigger and bigger real fast. But the early stages are always real slow, and that’s where we’re at now. But we’re not rushing anything. We’ve got the final leg of the 25-year-anniversary thing going on in December in Europe, so we’re actually planning and preparing a bit for that as well.”
