EDSEL DOPE Confronts Static-X Rumors: Calls Photo of Neck Tattoo “Click Bait & Hilarious”

DOPE front-man EDSEL DOPE, in the midst of a flurry of online speculation, has broken his silence to address the claims of photographic evidence attempting to prove his role as the masked vocalist, named Xer0, on the current STATIC-X Wisconsin Death Trip 20th Anniversary Tour / Memorial for WAYNE STATIC.

Hello world.

I have quietly sat through all of this speculation and have thoroughly enjoyed the ride.
Yesterday’s internet eruption reminded me of an episode of Scooby-Doo.
It’s incredible how far some people will go to get attention or clicks, so let me remind you how easy it is to slap a little tribal neck tattoo onto someone in photoshop.


I’m honored for myself and for my band DOPE to be part of this 20th anniversary celebration, along with this unbelievable, traveling memorial to our old friend Wayne Static.
Wayne is currently on the minds and in the hearts of the metal community in a very unique and special way. His memory / legacy is more celebrated than it has ever been before.
I pers…

BLIND GUARDIAN's TWILIGHT ORCHESTRA release new single & video for 'This Storm'

Promising to be one of the most ambitious projects in metal history, BLIND GUARDIAN's forthcoming release will be well worth the wait. The idea of recording an orchestral album originally formed in the minds of the two leading lights of the BLIND GUARDIAN universe - guitarist André Olbrich and singer Hansi Kürsch - during the 1990's when BLIND GUARDIAN started to use orchestral elements to enhance their opulent sound. The monumental project started to take shape over recent years, and mirroring its epic sound cascades, the lyrical concept was developed. To create the concept, Andrè and Hansi worked alongside German bestselling author Markus Heitz, whose latest novel Die dunklen Lande was released on March 1st, 2019. The book is set in 1629 and contains the prequel to BLIND GUARDIAN TWILIGHT ORCHESTRA's opus Legacy Of The Dark Lands, which will be out on November 8th, 2019.

The band unleash their 7" vinyl single titled 'This Storm', which can be ordered on vario…
