Kitty Litter, Rock Weddings, Marilyn Manson and the Most Metal Moments from the Season Finale of Californication

Kitty Litter, Rock Weddings, Marilyn Manson and the Most Metal Moments from the Season Finale of Californication

All good rock shows end with a grand finale, and the final episode of Californication‘s sixth season featured a Marilyn Manson cameo, a rock-and-roll wedding and several shots of David Duchovny riding bitch on a motorcycle with a genuine Sex Pistol. As said in this episode by Duchovny’s character, the Dionysian author and the show’s […]

Drugs, Orgies, Tasers and the Most Metal Moments of the Last Episode of Californication

Drugs, Orgies, Tasers and the Most Metal Moments of the Last Episode of Californication

Trampling social boundaries is just one facet of the double helix that makes up Californication, and it is the core of last night’s episode, “The Abby.” Whether in the presence of the increasingly psychotic, and ever-shocking feminist character Ophelia (actress Maggie Wheeler) or in the rehab-baiting actions of one Hank Moody, the show’s protagonist (David […]

Prying Parents, Nine Inch Nails and the Most Metal Moments From Last Night’s Californication

Prying Parents, Nine Inch Nails and the Most Metal Moments From Last Night’s Californication

Last night’s Californication episode was about a crisis of faith…literally. As the show’s Bukowskian author antihero character Hank Moody (David Duchovny) has gotten to know the groupie character named Faith (geddit?), played by Maggie Grace, she’s been a bit more than just some magic muse trope, she’s shown real heart and even proven herself to […]

Interview: Sepultura Frontman Derrick Green Talks About Writing Robot Sex Jams with His Funky R&B Group Maximum Hedrum

Interview: Sepultura Frontman Derrick Green Talks About Writing Robot Sex Jams with His Funky R&B Group Maximum Hedrum

Over the past 16 years, the Cleveland-born bellower Derrick Green has created an indelible image of himself in the minds of headbangers as the frontman of the long-running Brazilian metal squad Sepultura. To fans of the band, he’s a wide-eyed, gravel-throated totem, who looks entranced as he barks out classics like “Arise” and “Choke.” But […]

Drunken Masters, Misplaced Candy Bars and the Most Metal Moments From Last Night’s Californication

Drunken Masters, Misplaced Candy Bars and the Most Metal Moments From Last Night’s Californication

How does a show like Californication, whose current season has been steeped in the mythology of rock-and-roll hooliganism, recover from a less action-packed (though, at one point shocking) episode last week? In the case of last night’s episode, which bore the Joe Cocker–referencing title “Mad Dogs and Englishmen,” its fictional rock star Atticus Fetch (played […]

Review: Anthrax – Anthems

Review: Anthrax – Anthems

While thrashers Anthrax have written their fair share of headbanging classics, their biggest hits, at least on international radio, have been covers of songs by Public Enemy, Joe Jackson, and Trust. So recording a mostly covers EP (plus a remix of their own song “Crawl”) makes perfect sense, and Anthrax do it with gusto on […]

Crushed Feelings, “Slimy Sea Otters” and the Most Metal Moments From Last Night’s Californication

Crushed Feelings, “Slimy Sea Otters” and the Most Metal Moments From Last Night’s Californication

After watching Marilyn Manson snort narcotics and attempt to defile everyone loved by Californication character Hank Moody (actor David Duchovny) in last week’s episode, not to overlook some ill-fated lucha libre (or perhaps nacho libre) bathroom blowjobbery on the part of Moody’s agent Charlie Runkle (Evan Handler), this week’s episode seemed to lack punch. And […]
