Wanna see Slipknot play Rock Am Ring in Germany this weekend?

Well we’re giving away tickets to……. ok, no we’re not. This site doesn’t make that kind of money… yet! The good news, though, is that you don’t have to pay one red cent to catch the show.

The Nine will be live-streaming their headlining performance Sunday night, the band tweeted Thursday morning. It’ll give the group some (masked) face-time with their fans before the upcoming Knotfest Roadshow, which promises to be a kind of reestablishing of dominance, in the best way. This years lineup includes Volbeat, Gojira and Behemoth. (Warning: It Might Get a Little Loud!) We here at the Jam Hole are super- syched for We Are Not Your Kind, their 6th studio album, to drop in August.

Curtains-up is at 9:45pm UK time, which means the US east coast tunes in at 4:45pm, and 1:45pm for the west.

If you want to join in the festivities, just click the link below at the designated times on Sunday. http://slipknot1.com/events

Enjoy the show! And remember….you can’t see California without Marlon Brando‘s eyes 🤘😆

Is Nickleback… Cool Now?!


Okay, so, the short story is, no, not really (Sorry Chad). But, (and that’s a sizable “but”) I happened across the title track off their 2017 album Feed The Machine, and I had to look twice at who’s song it was! Chunky riffs, machine-gun kick-drums, and a rather guttural vocal track, at least compared to songs like ‘Photograph‘ and ‘How You Remind Me‘. I’ll admit I was impressed enough to skim through the rest of the album, and here’s what I came away with. Give it a listen and tell us what you think in the comments section!

First, I’m going to ask you to forget everything you know about Nickleback; the schlocky mom-rock singles from the early 2000’s, the attempt at reinvention with All The Right Reasons (2005) which gave us the rage-inducing D-side ‘Rockstar‘, a self-felating tribute to their pre-fame days, released well into their international touring career. I guess they don’t have irony in Canada…

See how easy it can be to slip into a prejudiced attitude?

Happens to the best of us.

Now that that’s out of our system, I’ll get down to nuts and bolts. The first and last tracks are strong. Solid drums and rhythm guitar riffs throughout, and I’d take those vocals any day of the week. There’s several more decent ones peppered in the middle as well, with varying degrees of awesomeness. Now, full disclosure, there ARE cheesy, archetypal “fillers” in there, which you’ll recognize about 15 seconds in, so keep your finger near the skip button. Audio to ‘Feed The Machine’ and ‘The Betrayal (Act III)’ are below for you to enjoy at your convenience.

I think the reason this was on my heart today is because, despite general distaste for middle-of-the-road, flavorless music and the tendency of mainstream radio to play the ever-loving FUCK out of the 20 songs in their rotation, regardless of quality, I’ve come to this conclusion: If this was NB’s first album, I highly doubt they would’ve ended up as the industry’s proverbial whipping-boy.

While it’s far from the likes of Master of Puppets or Reign in Blood, I absolutely respect the course-correction that is Feed The Machine. And, admittedly, I have a soft spot for redemption stories


Petition to Name Black Hole after Chris Cornell


Earlier this week, the very first image of a black hole at the center of galaxy M87, was captured by NASA and the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration. It is just one of billions and billions of others that exist out there and everything about it, is terrifyingly fascinating. To say the least.



Just 2 days ago, music reporter Giuliana Jarrin from Quito, Ecuador created a petition to name a black hole after the late Soundgarden and Audioslave singer, Chris Cornell. I think it’s safe to say and that we can all silently agree that… well, it just fits… as ”Black Hole Sun” begins to echo through our minds. 🎶

We grow, thrive, struggle, feel, heal and most importantly, we connect through the art of music. It’s such a beautiful thing. It’s wonderfully mind blowing, how just one person can make such an impact in the world of music. In OUR world especially, and into the lives of SO many people. He painted through his voice, and through his lyrics, amazing works of art that we will carry with us the rest of our way. His voice was unlike anyone we had ever had the pleasure of listening to. His love and passion for music inspired us all and does so still…


It has been 2 years since Chris’s passing, however it feels like just yesterday when family, friends and fans were met with the sad news that Chris had come to the end of his journey here in this world. On to the next. How time flies… But in light of it all, he lives on through us and through everyone he has ever influenced.



We here at the Collective would like to take this moment to send all our love and appreciation to his family and those close to him. Thank you for sharing with us, all the times the world had in his presence.


Also, a warm kudos to Ms. Giuliana Jarrin for proposing such a fantastic idea. Give her a follow on Instagram and show her some love.

At this time, there are 21,000 signatures and counting. This will be one beautiful way to honor such a beautiful mind and soul. In honor of his life, his memory, his words, his voice and every drop of the pure inspiration and influence that filled our souls and mended our hearts… as he did then and continues to do now.
