Video of the Day: APESHIT’s First and Only Promo Video

Though APESHIT has been around since July 2002, it was only until 2006 that we finally got around to the idea of a promo video. I had to babysit my six year old cousin one evening and I was reviewing promos for coverage for the site. I checked out the then brand new ROB ZOMBIE video collection as my little cousin got his first taste of rock music, monsters, blood, and scantily clad women. He was instantly mesmerized. Right afterward, I blasted the reissue of RINGWORM‘s The Promise and my cousin just started rockin’ hard out big time on his own. I quickly grabbed my camera and captured him as he spontaneously went apeshit.

Though we never promoted the video, word got back to RINGWORM and they posted it on their myspace page with the announcement that their singer, Human Furnace, had been replaced. Check it out here.

This is totally unrehearsed and you don’t have to understand Korean to appreciate my cousin (though it certainly helps). Enjoy!

CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED Confirm First Ever Tour

Richard Christy‘s CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED is hitting the road. Tickets are now available on http://www.richardchristy.com and http://www.timripperowens.com.

Richard Christy talked about the tour: “I am Soooooooooooooo pumped to get out on the road and blast some heavy metal with CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED this summer! Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens and I are beyond excited about this tour! The response to our debut album has been so amazing and I think people are going to be blown away when they hear these songs live! I’m sweating my buns off in the rehearsal room every day getting tighter and tighter on our songs so that we will be absolutely blistering when we get out on the road in July! Steve DiGiorgio and Jason Suecof have prior commitments and won’t be able to join us on this tour but we have the incredible musicians John Comprix (BEYOND FEAR, RINGWORM) on guitar, Dennis Hayes (BEYOND FEAR, ex-ICED EARTH) on bass, and Matt Sorg (RINGWORM) on guitar joining CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED for this tour! We’ll be playing our debut album in full and we’ll have plenty more surprises as well! Joining us as host of the tour and also doing stand up at each show will be the hilarious comedian and carrier of the heavy metal torch, Don Jamieson from VH1′s That Metal Show! I’ve known Don for many years and I’m so psyched to have him as part of this tour! Coming soon we’ll have more big announcements about the tour including opening bands in each market and other cool surprises! So get ready to raise your fists and bang your heads with CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED this summer! See you on tour!”

Vocalist Tim “Ripper” Owens adds: “Man I really look forward to this short run of shows, just going out with some friends and playing in front of some of the best fans around. And watching Don every night just tops it off!!! See you all on the road!”
