Given that there aren’t very many—or, perhaps, any—metal bands in recent memory to have emerged from the steely northeastern Pennsylvania city of Scranton, it’s not surprising that the six members of horrorcore act Motionless in White have experienced their fair share of sideways glances when they’re out and about in town.

Def Leppard have just released a seven-and-a-half minute acoustic medley as an exclusive iTunes download.

Last year, Godsmack’s Sully Erna took a creative leap of faith and released Avalon. Godsmack has shown glimpses of Erna’s world and tribal influences most notably with tracks like “Voodoo."

Effects are like jellybeans. You can’t have just one — and is there really a flavor you don’t like? They’re all good. But since I must, I have to give you a list of the best flavors of effects this year.
