Ghost Says “Hello Papa Emeritus III”

It’s been a couple of months since we all first learned of the replacement of Papa Emeritus II by his younger brother Papa Emeritus III in a clip that we shared HERE. Now let’s get a good look at him.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: PEIII sure looks ominous and ready for the task at hand don’t you think? I hope that you nodded “yes” to the inquiry because we shall have no dissidence in the rank and file among our readership. I’m going to guess that I didn’t miss a second chapter of “The Summoning” clips, if they are even making this a series of shorts, because this one was just an overview of Papa III’s attire and grim visage. Let’s keep watching right? What do you readers think of this new face and his potential in leading The Nameless Ghouls to dominance? Chime in down below and remember to order the new and older works in the event that you don’t have them.

Breaking News: Night Ranger’s Joel Hoekstra Joins Whitesnake!!!

Okay, so “breaking” is not the proper word since the news hit my frequency last night while I was covering the NYC appearance of Biohazard and could not hammer out a post for you right away. I felt that it was also best to wait a little while and do some confirmation because in these days of Internet hoaxes and fake news you just never know, so after a quick note to the man himself I can safely say that “yes Metal Legions, guitarist Joel Hoekstra has indeed joined the legendary Whitesnake”.

Logo - Nightwish

I just learned about this news and wanted to share it with all of our Nightwish fans out there. It seems that the bands long time drummer Jukka Nevalainen has stepped down from his duties in the band as far as recording and touring are concerned. To make sure you get the full on scoop behind this, I’ve taken Jukka’s statement directly from the bands Official Homepage for you to read. The photos that accompany this post were taken during the bands 2012 visit to NYC and were shot by me.
