Slipknot fan dies after attending concert in Tinley Park


According to Patch.com, a 62-year-old man died after falling to the ground during this past August 11 "Knotfest Roadshow" concert at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Tinley Park, Illinois.

Richard Valadez was pronounced dead at 11:34 p.m. The cause of his death is not yet known, and an autopsy is pending, a spokeswoman for the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office said.

Witnesses told Patch.com that Valadez joined in some of the mosh pits that formed in the lawn section and was knocked to the ground at least once.

About an hour into headliner Slipknot's set, he fell out of the pit and into the grass. As people were trying to help him up, he suffered a seizure and witnesses called for help. Two men performed CPR on him before staff and emergency personnel showed up to assist Valadez.

"They definitely should have handled things better: More emergency presence for one. And a better way for people to alert that they need help," one witness said about the amphitheater staff's response to the incident.

"Overall, the whole venue just screwed the pooch on the entire thing," another witness said. "No communication, no preparation, nothing."

“If you are a friend or family member of someone who is struggling, do not be silent! If you are an artist in need of support through your struggle, we have created the Kyle Pavone Foundation in Kyle’s honour to help.

“We look forward to celebrating Kyle’s life again at a public event in early October at the Fillmore in Detroit. Please join us to continue to support the Kyle Pavone Foundation.”

Parents arrested for leaving daughter alone to attend Metal show


A couple from Texas traveled from their Houston home to Detroit’s El Club, which is a 1,300 mile drive taking upward of 20 hours to traverse. That in itself is dedication, but the crazy part wasn’t the trek.

John Guerrero, 48, and Virginia Yearnd, 39, allegedly left their 11-year-old daughter home alone in order to catch metal act Godflesh at the Detroit venue Aug. 22. According to Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office, the duo were arrested upon returning to Houston Monday night, nearly a week after leaving their child home alone.

According to court documents, the couple left the morning of Aug. 22. Local authorities were alerted of the situation by the girl’s great aunt after talking with the child who let her know she had been home alone since the previous morning.

Deputies attempted to get in contact with either Guerrero or Yearnd for hours, finally reaching them to first be told they were Louisiana. The couple finally came clean about being in Detroit, so deputies headed to their home where they discovered the girl “trying to cook.”

After being taken into custody, the metal-loving duo claimed that Yearnd’s sister was asked to check in with the girl, but she failed to do so. The couple was arrested on second-degree felony child endangerment charges and booked in the Harris County Jail with no bond.

According to the Houston Chronicle, a parent or guardian in Texas who has custody over a child under 15 can be charged with child endangerment if he or she “intentionally abandons the child in any place under circumstances that expose the child to an unreasonable risk of harm.”

The Chronicle also reported that the couple can face up to 20 years if convicted, and Child Protective Services is looking into the incident.

Disturbed's David Draiman: "Half of 'Evolution' is very, very different"


Adam Kane of Winnipeg radio station CITI-FM recently interviewed Disturbed frontman David Draiman about the band's forthcoming album, "Evolution". You can read some excerpts below:

On "Evolution", David said: "It is, in our opinion, your new baby is always our favorite, but, in our opinion, this is the most powerful body of work as a whole that we've ever released. We couldn't be more proud. Also, at the same time, it's probably the most unique and certainly the most different from anything people have heard from us. There's plenty of familiarity for half the record. It's Disturbed meat and potatoes that you're used to hearing: it's rhythmic, it's heavy, it's melodic, it's syncopated, it's all the things people have come to identify us with and love us for, but half the record is a dramatic left turn. Very, very different. There's heavy songs and the rest can only be described, because there's really no other way to define them, as ballads. Something the success of [SIMON & GARFUNKEL's] 'The Sound Of Silence' cover did for us, it gave us the confidence to go in any direction. It gave us the confidence to no longer have any stylistic parameters of any kind. That was so liberating and so wonderful to be able to go in any kind of direction and go in unchartered territory for DISTURBED. Some of these, all of these songs, there are some truly, truly some unbelievable moments within this record that still, even if I'm glossing over the record or trying to rehearse one of the songs, it still gets me emotional going through them. They're really moving. Hopefully everybody else is feeling the same way we do about it. That's all we hope. [Laughs]"

On whether the creation of "Evolution" was like "going to war": "It very much is. You have to fight for the strength of your creation. It's fighting to make sure the song is as powerful as it can be, that the meaning behind it as poignant as it can be, that you're using all the choices of words, notes, patterns, rhythms. You're dealing with other very strong creative influences that are a part, and other creative minds that are a part of that process and you're fighting for your vision. It's a fight worth having and it's a war that you have to win. At the end of the day, we all end up benefiting from the rewards that you reap from it. I think there's no truer and more pure purpose than to be able to refine your art to a point where you feel it's as possible as it can be."

On the band being unafraid to do ballads and inject melody into their sound:

David: "Melody has always been in our wheelhouse, but when you hear the rest of this record, you'll notice a very tangible left turn. It's markedly different than anything we've put out. The closest thing to some of the stuff on this record would be 'Darkness' from the 'Believe' record. We haven't tried anything like that since then. Now there's half a record full of it. To me, these are some of the most powerful songs we've ever written. I'm brimming with anticipation for people to hear this thing. I'm eager to hear people's reactions."

On whether he touches upon any current American political topics: "There's very powerful themes running throughout the record. I think that in my humble opinion, that the world is divided and the media has a very good, a very predictable habit of emphasizing whatever will keep people clicking. [Laughs] Whatever will keep people tuned in and there's nothing like stoking the coals of fear and aggression to do that. I think that we're more united than the media would care to admit. We're not as divided as the perception would relay — not in the United States, not anywhere really in the world. People who are divided are easier to control. That's one of the primary themes of the first two tracks on the record. It's dealing with control, and 'Are You Ready', in particular, is a call to arms against those who are so eager to keep us underfoot and are so eager to victimize us and to prey upon our weaknesses. It's encouraging people to no longer be prey, to not let them stir us up anymore."
