music-bowl-51It must be a blessing and a curse to be in the MusicBowl because this is the third one that we have done and it seems to me that whoever has won this has lost the SuperBowl. Last year, Corrosion Of Conformity won MusicBowl 50, but the Carolina Panthers lost SuperBowl 50. This year in record breaking numbers, Sevendust won MusicBowl 51 by getting 89% of the vote which was beating your opponent (Godsmack) by 142 votes total. Maybe it’s the curse of the MusicBowl that has happened or maybe the Russians interfered in the game which is why they lost. No matter the reason for it, Sevendust is your MusicBowl 51 winners and what that means is that I am going to cover a Sevendust record for the album of the week. So stay tuned for that when it comes, but for now enjoy this win.

music-bowl-51This is the third time that we are doing the MusicBowl here on Moshpits and Movies, but once again we are just calling it Musicbowl 51 to go along with the SuperBowl. SuperBowl 51 is tomorrow night which means that the New England Patriots are taking on the Atlanta Falcons with one team hoping to taste glory for the first time while the other wants to be on top of the mountain for a fifth time in 15 years. For this years edition of MusicBowl 51, we are once again selecting a band that represents each team and it’s region and we are pinning them against each other with you deciding the winner. On one end, we have one of the hardest working bands from a hard working city in Godsmack who hail from Boston, MA as they take on one of Alt Metal/Nu Metal’s hardest working acts that has persevered through triumph and heartache in Atlanta’s Sevendust. Both bands have been around the scene now for more than 20 years having taken two completely different roads to where they are, but only one can come out of this contest triumphant. Is it going to be the New England Patriots and Godsmack that walk out winners or is it going to be the Atlanta Falcons and Sevendust that taste glory. You have until the start of the fourth quarter of SuperBowl 51 to decide who the winner is and let your voices be heard.

Music Bowl 50 MatchupThe Denver Broncos may have been the big winners of Superbowl 50, but it was a completely different story for Musicbowl 50. This year was the first time that we pinned two bands to represent the two team in the Superbowl. For the Denver Broncos, we had power metal legends Jag Panzer who hail from Colorado Springs. For the Carolina Panthers, we had Stoner Metal/Crossover Thrash legends Corrosion Of Conformity who hailed from Raleigh, North Carolina. We left it up to you the fans to decide who was going to win by voting and after waiting until the 4TH quarter to look to see who won Musicbowl 50, you gave the win to Corrosion Of Conformity. With that win, I am going to review an album from the band for the album of the week as part of winning it all. So, once again, congratulations to Corrosion Of Conformity on winning Musicbowl 50.

Music Bowl 50 MatchupThis is the second time that we are doing the Musicbowl here on Moshpits and Movies, but we just call it Musicbowl 50 to go along with the Superbowl. Superbowl 50 is tonight which means that the Carolina Panthers are taking on the Denver Broncos with one team hoping to taste glory for the first time while the other wants to be on top of the mountain one more time. For this years edition of Musicbowl 50, we are changing it up a little by selecting a band from each teams area. We are pinning them together and you will vote as to who the winner of Musicbowl 50 is going to be. On one end, we have a legendary southern metal/crossover thrash/stoner metal band from Raleigh, North Carolina in Corrosion Of Conformity. In the other corner we have a legendary power metal outfit from Colorado Springs, Colorado in Jag Panzer. Both bands have been around for a very long time, but only one can be winner of Musicbowl 50. Both of the bands have endured lineup changes over the years, but both have spawned some legendary guitarist like Pepper Kennan (C.O.C.) and Chris Broderick (ex-Jag Panzer, ex-Megadeth). Who are you going to vote for? You have until the start of the 4th quarter of the Superbowl game to decide.

 

I had a lot of fun doing this countdown to Christmas for all of you guys as we shared some funny videos, songs, and other things as well. I just wanted to take the time to wish everyone all around the world a very Merry Christmas. I hope that you are taking the time to spend time with the ones you love because that is what this day is about. I also hope that everyone received everything they asked for as far as Christmas presents are concerned. I have a little Christmas present for all of you metal heads out there in the form of a song. What happens when you take one of the biggest voices of metal and match him together with one of the godfathers of metal? Well, you get a collaboration between Ronnie James Dio and Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath. The two got together for a project called Metal X-Mas and they did the song God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. So sit back, relax, and rock out with some killer Christmas music from a couple of legends. Merry Christmas everyone.

Early in 2015, the wrestling world and it’s fans lost one of it’s most beloved figures in legend Rowdy Roddy Piper who was one of the great personalities wrestling ever had. Well while I was cruising through the internet super highway, I discovered this video Caroling With Roddy Piper courtesy of Uproxx that was produced by Royal Canadian Air Farce, a comedy group from Canada. The video features Roddy Piper doing his own version of the 12 Days Of Christmas with a big fan. The beginning of the video will entice you to stay and watch as Piper is so warm in his greeting. The video is hilarious as you don’t know what to expect, but when you see it, it’s definitely classic Piper at his best. There is only one day until Christmas as today is Christmas Eve so let’s enjoy it with the Late Roddy Piper.

a christmas cheersFor today’s Countdown to Christmas, we have a very special video for all of you from one of the biggest metal bands in history. There is only 4 days left (that’s including today) and Iron Maiden have unleashed a cool gift to all their fans to help celebrate the fact that 2015 was a great year. The band’s latest record Book Of Souls was a huge success so the band recorded a song and a video to help celebrate the Christmas season with A Christmas Cheers. In the animate video, the Book Of Souls Mayan Eddie isn’t familiar with Christmas, but he is soon taught by all the different Eddie mascots of the past when they all show up. Artist Val Andrade helped create the video for the band which even features they saying happy holidays in many different languages as well and expect to see the band live in 2016 too. Check out the video below and celebrate the holidays with the Eddies.
