Tom Morello is 49 years old today. Well done, Tom! Please stop playing as The Nightwatchman and get back together with Zack and the boys to make a new Rage Against The Machine album before it’s too late, yeah?

It seems like a while back now, but remember that Facebook campaign to get Rage Against The Machine to number 1 for Christmas instead of the usual tripe from Simon Cowell and his X Factor cronies? Remember their promise to come and play a free gig in the UK if we got them to the top spot? Well consider that a promise fulfilled on Sunday 6th June 2010, when Finsbury Park became the venue for ‘The Rage Factor’.

The 13th Floor

If you listen to Morten Veland, the brains and driving force behind this Norwegian symphonic metal gang, he’ll bang on at length about how unfair it is that Sirenia’s fourth album, The 13th Floor will be viewed by many as a work riding in on the coat tails of the likes of Nightwish, Within Temptation and Lacuna Coil. And that how he formed the similar Tristania (for whom he sang, played guitar and wrote most of the music and lyrics) at the same time as most of the aforementioned started, even if he was unceremoniously dumped from their ranks to breath life into Sirenia in 2001.

Here comes another experimental metal band from Berkshire. This is No Made Sense. Drummer, Sam Ward talks to us about losing his cat for two months and hating New Year’s Eve. Crazy fool!
What was your highlight of 2008?
Finally finishing our album (it took nine months!) or the Exit Ten show in Reading, great gig, great beer, great friends.
What’s the worst thing that happened to you in 2008?
My cat went missing for eight weeks but he came back… 2008 was pretty uneventful.
