American Scream: The Bill Hicks Story by Cynthia True
Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, Andy Kaufman -- add Bill Hicks to that list of brilliant, fearless comics. Just emerging from underground cult status when he died at age thirty-two, Bill Hicks spent most of his life making audiences roar -- and censors cringe -- with biting social satire about everything from former president George Bush to rock stars who hawk diet Coke. His nervy talent redefined the boundaries of comedy in the 80s and won him a list of admirers that includes John Cleese, George Carlin, and Thom Yorke of Radiohead.
This posthumous biography reveals for the first time what made Bill Hicks tick -- what made him laugh, what pissed him off, and what he saw as his ultimate mission: to release people from their prison of ignorance. From his first comedy gig at Bible camp to his infamous cancellation on The Late Show with David Letterman, Cynthia True portrays an artist whose outrage, drive, and compassion fueled a controversial body of work that still resonates today.

ASKING ALEXANDRIA - A Prophecy (Official Music Video)
Pit-enticing breakdowns, gut-wrenching growls and one easy lady — clearly the average Wednesday afternoon for Asking Alexandria. The album it came from, Stand Up And Scream , blew the cobwebs off the bold and abrasive side of metalcore and injected a heap of adrenaline into the scene. Ferocious, incendiary and ball-breaking, Closure is the height of brutality for Asking Alexandria. Complete with a melody that neatly controls their signature rage, Closure strongly confirms these five guys are an utterly bonkers yet brilliant instrumental powerhouse. The raw edges and unbridled guttural tones typical of their debut album Stand Up And Scream take us back to a time when metalcore belted its lungs out without thinking.
