In news that has shaken the metal blogging community to its very foundation, the Twitter feed of a popular band was temporarily compromised by a man with poor priorities.

Working feverishly for many lonely hours, the culprit managed to gain control of something for the first time in many long years. In the roughly 10 minutes that the account was hacked, the perpetrator was able to write down his name and create 2 to 3 tweets containing bad words.

Outraged metal fans the world over have called the events: “A complete non-story” and “Dumb as hell, son.”

As of press time, the affected band had reached Number 32 on the Billboard 200. Also as of press time, the perpetrator was reportedly napping; exhausted after pleasuring himself to a children’s cartoon about horses.

We will be bring you the latest in this story as it develops.

In completely unrelated news, San Francisco Powerviolence crew Punch has a new record coming out August 19th. They Don’t Have To Believe is available for preorder now through Deathwish. Their first single from the new album “Worth More Than Your Opinion” is below.

The track is, in this humble reporter’s opinion, pretty dope.

    Are Axl and Vince going to come here and complain about everything?
    Ps. A cool painting

    • Deputy Dipshit

      That’s pretty fucking rad. I dig it, Meta-Anus.

      • Metaphysical Anus

        Do you know the story behind the painting and other paintings by this guy?

        • Deputy Dipshit

          No, but I am intrigued and interested… Share with the class, bromie!

          • Metaphysical Anus

            The painter was Louis Wain. He liked cats. He drew a lot of cats. He suffered from schizophrenia. This next compilation shows how his cat paintings changed as his schizophrenia got worse..

          • Flushgod Apocalypse

            This is incredible. My metal AND art game are on point now — THANKS ToH!

            No flush necessary.

          • Deputy Dipshit

            Holy shit… ToH’s Behind The Art. This is wild.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            What does ToH mean? I’m stupid.

          • psst.. look at the URL above!

          • Metaphysical Anus

            SHIT! I’m didn’t relize because I just moved here.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Just by the way, I’m not really a art knower. I known this stuff because I’ve studied psychology and his paintings are usually used as an example of schizophrenia.

          • Ann Coulter’s Flaccid Penis

            I have a minor in art history, studied it a lot in college. If you guys would be interested in having some sort of metal-themed art posts, I could see if I can come up with something.

          • Absolutely. I’ll send you an email.

            /I’m all creepy and I can see everyone’s email address.

          • Max

            This is the one you’d want to benchmark yourself to. It’s awesome:

          • Duuuuuude. This rules.

          • Max

            Yeah, I saw all these in a book once about art and madness or some such. Naturally it also had Bosch’s “hell section” of The Garden of Unearthly Delights triptych – the first time I’d seen that outside of being used in a comic book story.

          • George Lynch

            I feel like he would do a standup job passing that last cat painting off as a band logo! Sick!

            GL

          • Fromwisdomtohate29

            Why hasn’t a metal band written a concept album about this yet? That’s some really cool history.

          • Further Down the Metal Hole

            These paintings are both utterly creepy and incredibly fascinating, thanks for sharing!

  • W.

    Flush this poser hack down Blood Mountain’s summit porta-john from hell.

    • Cock of Steele

      And let him be devoured by the Leviathan which lurks in the bowels and putrid drainage pipes of the TOILET OV HELL

  • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

    pretty raw. How old is the vocalist? Sounds like my neighbors 14 daughter yelling at her for taking away her phone. 4.10 flushes

    • Christian Molenaar

      Honestly I love her voice, Punch are pretty badass. 1-1.5 flushes.

      • CyberneticOrganism

        I’m not a big punk guy but I dug it, 2/5 flushes.

      • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

        Just listened to more. my cubicle is thrashed. I rescind 2 flushes.

  • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

    FLUSH THOSE POSER FAKE HIPSTERS AND THEIR IRONIC MUSTACHES. Plus their album cover looked liked a fucking Ben and Jerry’s carton.

  • I just want to let it be known that MS did EXACTLY what I expected them to do. I am soooo smart.

    • Deputy Dipshit

      Vince and Haxl were the ones who hijacked Mastodon’s twitter to support their hack journalism?

      • HA!
        They posting unedited screenshots of the hack and dropped the hackers name. They did EXACTLY what the hacker dude wanted. That is silly.

        • Deputy Dipshit

          Classic shitstains. Their bowl is sub-standard, faulty and couldn’t flush the idea of a poser, let alone an entire one.
          FLUSH AND DESTROY!

          Re: Punch. Gave me a kind of hardcore, grind vibe with an angry broad at the helm. I’d imagine they’d be pretty fun live.

          1.5-2 flushes, I’d have to hear more to give a more fair assessment of PUNCH.

          • Negrodamus

            “angry broad at the helm”

            the Deputy >>>>>>>>>

          • Deputy Dipshit

            Laying down the law, since ’81.
            Period!

          • Negrodamus

            No flush required!

            We flush the posers and never get flushed!

          • Flushgod Apocalypse

            Metalsucks “Mansion”

          • Metaphysical Anus

            That shit’s too fancy for them dude. They can only dream of that.

          • Xan

            This is Axl’s desk:

          • Pagliacci is Kvlt

            Fuck, dude, I’m eating lunch while I read this…

        • KJM

          So did Lambgoat.

        • KJM

          And Mastodon STILL haven’t done anything about it!!

      • Flushgod Apocalypse

        I’m still sticking to my original theory that it was Chris Holmes.

      • You are giving Axl way too much credit.

    • George Lynch

      I love this website.

      GL

      • Metaphysical Anus

        No.

        PS. MURMAIDER MURMAIDER MURMAIDER MURMAIDER!!!!

        • KJM

          Doggie!!!!!!

      • Xan

        This magic picture of Axl can finally be shared again.

        • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

          Are axl & vince going to go under financially now ?, say it’s so bro, say it’s so.

          • Xan

            God, I hope so. It would serve them right for slamming good bands and promoting shit ones for years on end.

          • tylerusmaximus

            I bet they’ll take a hit at least. Who knows how much they had to be paid to pimp that fucking King band for a goddamn week straight.

      • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

        Is this a real photo of axl ? Also i have never heard the term briar before , hahhahaha

    • geddy

      It’s how they roll! Ha!

      • Paris Hilton

        That feel when u recognize the dude in that pic by his tattoo.

      • Xan

        I can see the disappointment in her eyes. It must be what MS inspires.

    • This worked out splendidly, @joethrashnkill:disqus.

    • joe, your photoshop skills surpass axl’s. i’m proud of ya, son!

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      I have to say, i am finally reading the articles first, instead of immediately posting. That is a miracle.

      • Deputy Dipshit

        This had me laughing! m/

  • Negrodamus

    United Nations has a new one out today, too.

  • Steve Smithwick

    Televised sporting events don’t show streakers running on the field, why should the media give hackers the notoriety they crave when they do ‘provocative’ things on the internet?

    This is truly the best policy for dealing with hackers; don’t name ’em.

  • geddy

    It was the drugs…blame drrrrruugs!

  • Paris Hilton

    I’ve read the tweets, I’m happy lots of that shit is blocked on here. The world doesn’t need anymore shit like that. I guess yeah, nerds will cry “freedom of speech”, but why would anyone in their right mind even wanna see that shit?

    • Pagliacci is Kvlt

      Speech is free, but we aren’t obligated to listen to it thankfully.

      • Paris Hilton

        As Sgt. D would say, sometimes you gotta hoedown throwdown away from shitty opinions!

      • Keegan Lavern Still

        Or agree with it. Or like it. It also doesn’t mean that whoever says that shit can’t be criticized for it.

  • new Opeth album has leaked. i’m halfway through and it’s completely flushworthy. thoughts?

    • George Lynch

      Thoughts? You should stop what you are doing and immediately put on Lynch Mob’s Wicked Sensation LP. You can thank me later!

      GL

      • you related to the band by any chance?

        JM

      • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

        time to dust this one off.

    • I’m not sophisticated enough for that band.

    • KJM

      I liked Heritage. The one new song I heard didn’t do much for me, hoping the rest is better.

    • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

      ALL THE FLUSHES to the new Opeth.

    • Flushgod Apocalypse

      I’ve listened through about three times now and I really enjoy it. I think that it’s an album for musicians and is going to piss off a lot of the fans, just as Heritage did. I’ll admit that I’m a Mikael fanboy and while he is very pretentious, his vocals and guitar stylings just do it for me.

      • Cock of Steele

        He’s like the guys in rush, they can be pretentious but have a great sense of humor, and aren’t as serious about themselves as they would like one would believe.

        • Flushgod Apocalypse

          Agreed. Alex Lifeson’s speech at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction was one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            and the best part was watching geddy and neils faces, i am not sure they knew what he was going to do, and if they did maybe they didn’t think he would go on as long as he did. Talk about sticking to the hand that feeds you. hahhhahha.
            They were packaging blah blah blah shirts with some clockwork angels live cd/dvd packages as well, i have seen a few on ebay.

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      maybe they are changing ala rush , remember the leap between hemispheres and permanent waves ? just playing CROMS advocate, don’t know band that well.
      Is this cool or what, beating cheap trick at their own game. Plus rush could play the entire Trick catalog at double speed from memory.

  • Rowsdower

    Legit song.

  • Paris Hilton

    Did you guys see the comments on this story on MS. Holy Christ are they awful.

    • Rob M

      ..so pretty much par for the course, right?

      • Paris Hilton

        “MetalSucks is an awful place for awful people.”

  • Mr. Bozflusher

    Dig it, new White Lung is pretty good too, when talking female vocals

    • Mr. Bozflusher

      oops, still the Bozflusher

  • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

    ohhhh ohhhhh ohhhhhh! My boner hurts sooooo bad right now ——
