Rising metalcore stars, The Devil Wears Prada, who laid waste to last night’s Revolver Golden Gods Awards when they performed “Assistant to the Regional Manager,” ” Ben Has a Kid,” and “Danger Wildman” for the sold-out metal crowd, will host “Headbangers Ball” this Monday, April 12.  In addition to their hosting duties, the band will treat fans to another viewing of their brand-new music video, “Assistant to the Regional Manager,” that premiered on “Headbangers” April 5.  “Headbangers Ball” airs on MTV2 at 3:00AM ET/PT.

HM Magazine Turns 35

It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings.
