Coffinworm @ Power of the Riff East (more by Greg Cristman)
Coffinworm was formed under watchful eye of Choronzon in late 2007. The 'Great Bringer of Night' demo was recorded by Bob Fouts (Basement Rage Studios) in late 2008/early 2009 and led to an alliance with Profound Lore Records shortly afterwards. The 'When All Became None' full-length was recorded by Sanford Parker in December of 2009 within Semaphore Studios, Chicago, and released in April 2010. Summer 2010 saw a lineup change with J. joining the fold on drums and C. moving from behind the kit to guitar." - their bioCoffinworm is an Indianapolis metal band with many ties to Chicago, including producer Sanford Parker who recently told us his Two 10 Albums of 2012.

Motörhead @ Roseland Ballroom 9/21/2008 (more by Chris La Putt)
Motörhead's The Wörld is Yours was released on February 8th, via Motörhead Music / EMI Music Services.
MOTÖRHEAD, the loudest, coolest and most iconic rock'n'roll lifestyle around, announce their 2011 U.S. tour dates to celebrate the band's 35th anniversary and the release their new studio album, The Wörld Is Yours.
Motörhead are a mindset, a belief, a way to live your life, a way to both survive and beat a society that sometimes seems intent on trying to grind you down. Which is why Motörhead have chosen now, in what might be some of the most tense times in recent global history, to release a hell-raising, rebel-rousing rock'n'roll statement known as The Wörld is Yours.
If that isn't enough, the critically-acclaimed documentary about Motörhead's iconic founding-frontman, titled LEMMY, which has been tearing up the worldwide film festival circuit from New York to Melbourne to London and beyond, will premiere nationally in January.
"We don't fit into anything!" roars founder and heartbeat Lemmy Kilmister,"the only thing we fit into is 'Motörhead' because we are Motörhead music and that's what we do!" [press release]
LEMMY aired last night on VH1, and VH1 Classic.
The band is currently on tour with the jaw-dropping combo of Clutch and Valient Thorr. They will reach the Congress Theatre on Saturday, February 19th (tickets are still available), and the rock'n'roll legends with make a TV appearance on the Jimmy Fallon Show on NBC on March 2nd.
