Metal Church is an American heavy metal band. They formed in San Francisco, California in 1980 before relocating to Aberdeen, Washington the following year and using the name Shrapnel, their self titled debut album was released in 1984, their latest, Damned If You Do, was released on December 7, 2018. Metal Church is credited as a formative influence on the thrash metal subgenre, melding the aesthetics of the new wave of British heavy metal and American hard rock with "incredibly tight musicianship" and "piercingly screeched" vocals, they are known for their association with the 1980s and early 1990s Seattle hard rock and heavy metal scene, which spawned bands such as Mother Love Bone, Alice in Chains, Queensrÿche, Fifth Angel, TKO, Rail, Forced Entry and Q5. The band's early lyrical topics such as conflict and paranoia expanded into philosophical and social commentary. Founding guitarist Kurdt Vanderhoof remained the group's sole consistent creative force throughout its career, despite reducing his role to composition in 1986 after tiring of performing.
Vanderhoof, vocalist David Wayne, guitarist Craig Wells, bassist Duke Erickson, drummer Kirk Arrington composed the classic Metal Church lineup featured on its first two records, while vocalist Mike Howe and guitarist John Marshall contributed to the group's sound. It was during this period that Metal Church had achieved mainstream popularity, with two of their albums—The Dark and Blessing in Disguise —entering the Top 100 on the Billboard 200 chart, their 1991 album The Human Factor and its 1993 follow-up Hanging in the Balance received critical praise, but did not match the success of the group's 1980s material. After their first break up in 1995, Metal Church reformed in 1998 with most of their classic lineup, including Vanderhoof's return to performance, resulting in the Masterpeace album, they endured numerous lineup changes thereafter, releasing three further studio albums while fronted by Ronny Munroe before disbanding once again in July 2009. The group reunited for the second time in October 2012, released their tenth studio album Generation Nothing a year later.
Following Munroe's departure in the fall of 2014, Howe rejoined Metal Church in April 2015 at Vanderhoof's request, recorded their eleventh studio album XI. Another lineup change took place in March 2017 when longtime drummer Jeff Plate left Metal Church and was subsequently replaced by former W. A. S. P. Drummer Stet Howland. Based in San Francisco, Kurdt Vanderhoof formed the band in 1980 with various musicians; this era included a brief audition period with future Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich. The three-song, instrumental Red Skies demo appeared in 1981, featuring Vanderhoof, guitarist Rick Condrin, bassist Steve Hott, drummer Aaron Zimpel. Vanderhoof returned to his hometown of Aberdeen in 1981 and began the new group Shrapnel with Craig Wells, Duke Erickson, drummer Tom Weber, vocalist Mike Murphy. Murphy departed before their next demo, recorded without vocals, Weber departed shortly thereafter; the enlistment of Kirk Arrington and David Wayne completed the group's classic lineup. They released the demo Four Hymns and spent following years touring and accruing material, readopting the Metal Church moniker in 1983.
The song "Death Wish" is featured on the compilation album Northwest Metalfest. In 1984, they released their self-titled debut album, which included three songs from the Four Hymns demo and a cover of Deep Purple's "Highway Star", they sold 70,000 copies of the album independently before signing to Elektra. According to Wayne and Metallica bandmate James Hetfield urged Elektra to sign the band before another label did. By the time Metal Church released their second studio album, The Dark, in 1986, they were touring with high-profile acts like Metallica; the Dark was a commercial success, helped by the fact that the band's first music video, "Watch the Children Pray", received frequent airplay on MTV. As a result, the album managed to enter the Billboard 200, saw Metal Church perform at clubs and theaters with the likes of King Diamond, Celtic Frost, Testament and the Big Four of thrash metal. Shortly after the album's release, they were plagued by lineup changes: Vanderhoof ceased performing with the group in 1986, to be replaced by Mark Baker and more extensively by John Marshall.
Vanderhoof nonetheless continued to work with the group in composing thereafter, co-writing much of their subsequent material. Wayne departed shortly thereafter and was replaced by former Heretic singer Mike Howe. Wayne teamed up with the remaining members of Heretic to form Reverend. With Howe and Marshall, Metal Church released their third studio album, Blessing in Disguise, in 1989. Critics responded favorably, including some assertions that the record was the group's strongest effort. Blessing in Disguise was more successful than its predecessors, peaking at number 75 on the Billboard 200. Despite touring well behind the album throughout 1989 and 1990, they were dropped from Elektra. Metal Church released its fourth studio album, The Human Factor, on Epic Records in 1991. Critics applauded the group for transitioning to a major label and retaining the vitality of their sound, while releasing a record with conceptual accessibility beyond the heavy metal genre. Unlike their previous two albums, The Human Factor failed to chart on the Billboard 200.
The band followed with their fifth studio album, 1993's Hanging in the Bal

The Presidents of the United States of America (band)
The Presidents of the United States of America were an American alternative rock power trio band. The band formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1993, disbanded in 2016; the three-piece group consisted of vocalist and "basitarist" Chris Ballew and vocalist Jason Finn with "guitbassist" and vocalist Andrew McKeag. "Guitbassist" and vocalist Dave Dederer was a member of the band for eleven years before leaving in 2004. The band released six studio albums during its twenty-three-year existence; the band was formed in late 1993 by Chris Ballew and Dave Dederer, who met while attending The Bush School in Seattle. Ballew had been in a punk band called Egg, who wrote many songs that would be turned into PUSA songs. A drummerless duo and Dederer performed a half-dozen or so shows in 1993 as "The Lo-Fis", "The Dynamic Duo", "Pure Frosting." Ballew came upon the name "The Presidents of the United States of America." Shortly after settling on their name and Dederer added drummer Jason Finn. At the time, Finn was the drummer in the band Love Battery, who had changed record labels from Sub Pop to Atlas Records, an A&M subsidiary.
The Presidents recorded a ten-song cassette, Froggystyle, in early 1994 in one day at Laundry Room Studios. The band sold the cassette at shows in 1994. Finn sold the cassette from behind the bar of Seattle's Comet Tavern, where he tended bar. In 1994, the band signed with the tiny Seattle label PopLlama Records and released their self-titled debut in the following year; the band released a limited edition blue vinyl 7" single, "Fuck California", on C/Z Records. Columbia Records signed the band shortly thereafter and re-released the album in late July 1995. Driven by the singles "Lump", "Peaches", "Kitty", their debut album has been certified triple Platinum by the RIAA. A follow-up album, II, received similar praise, but did not match the commercial success that the Presidents' debut album had, though it was still certified gold in the US. Throughout 1995, 1996 and 1997, the band made worldwide tours to support their first two albums. In 1996, MTV aired a recorded live concert of the band from Mount Rushmore for Presidents Day.
They were introduced with: "Ladies and gentlemen, the Presidents of the United States." In addition to relentless touring in the U. S. and Canada, PUSA made multiple tours of Europe, New Zealand and Japan. They made many appearances in major print media and on radio and TV, including multiple appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and the Late Show with David Letterman in the U. S; the Presidents turned down an offer to perform on Saturday Night Live in the fall of 1995 because the date conflicted with Ballew's wedding, but made an appearance on the eleventh episode of Mad TV in January 1996. The band began the program with a skit called "Public Domain", performed "Lump" in the show and "When the Saints Go Marching In" during the end credits; the band broke up in January 2000 as Ballew quit to spend more time with his young family and explore other musical terrain. Pure Frosting, a final album composed of new songs and demos, was released in 1998; the CD contained videos for "Lump," "Peaches," "Mach 5," and "Dune Buggy."
Pure Frosting featured two songs, used in a movie and as a television show theme. "Video Killed the Radio Star" was included on the soundtrack for The Wedding Singer, while "Cleveland Rocks," recorded by Ian Hunter, was chosen as the theme song for The Drew Carey Show. Another song on the album, "Man", appeared in the Nickelodeon-produced motion picture Good Burger but was not directly written or performed for the film; the Presidents wrote the theme song for the 1998 TV movie My Date with the President's Daughter. They performed a cover of the George of the Jungle theme song for the 1997 movie of the same name; this performance is not available on any of their albums. In 1998, the group appeared on the album Happy Hour by Japanese female rockers Shonen Knife; the Presidents collaborated with Sir Mix-A-Lot as Subset, a short-lived rock and hip-hop band. They never released an album; the band broke up because Sir Mix-A-Lot wanted to take the band in a harder, more electronic direction, but Finn and Dederer were not interested.
The Presidents reunited in 2000 to release a new single, "Jupiter", on MUSICBLITZ Records. Because of the single's popularity, the label convinced the band to release a new album. Freaked Out & Small was released that year to critical praise; the band did not tour on or promote the album, which sold 25,000 copies as MUSICBLITZ, an early digital music player went bankrupt. Afterward, the band members once again went their own ways. Ballew continued to produce and record his own work, collaborated with Tad Hutchison of The Young Fresh Fellows as The Chris and Tad Show. During this time, The Young Fresh Fellows recorded a song, "Good Times Rock'N' Roll", about The Presidents, which appeared on the 2001 album Because We Hate You. In 2003, the band once again reformed. In August 2004, the band released Love Everybody on their newly formed indie label PUSA Inc; as with their previous albums, it received praise from many critics. Two singles from the album have been released through the Apple iTunes Store.
In late 2004, the rights to the debut album were returned to the band, who have since reissued the album through PUSA Inc. twice: once as a tenth-anni
Black Sabbath were an English rock band, formed in Birmingham in 1968, by guitarist and main songwriter Tony Iommi and main lyricist Geezer Butler, drummer Bill Ward, singer Ozzy Osbourne. Black Sabbath are cited as pioneers of heavy metal music; the band helped define the genre with releases such as Black Sabbath and Master of Reality. The band had multiple line-up changes, with Iommi being the only constant member throughout its history. Formed in 1968 as the Polka Tulk Blues Band, a blues rock band, the group went through line up changes, renamed themselves as Earth, broke up and reformed. By 1969, they had named themselves Black Sabbath after the film Black Sabbath starring Boris Karloff, began incorporating occult themes with horror-inspired lyrics and tuned-down guitars; the band's first show as Black Sabbath took place on 30 August 1969, in Workington. Signing to Philips Records in November 1969, they released their first single, "Evil Woman" in January 1970, their debut album, Black Sabbath, was released on Friday the 13th, February 1970, on Philips' newly formed progressive rock label, Vertigo Records.
Though receiving a negative critical response, the album was a commercial success and reached number 8 in the UK Albums Chart, so the band returned to the studios to record the follow up, released in 1970. The band's popularity grew, by 1973's Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, critics were starting to respond favourably. Osbourne's regular use of alcohol and other drugs led to his dismissal from the band in 1979, he was replaced by former Rainbow vocalist Ronnie James Dio. Following two albums with Dio, Black Sabbath endured many personnel changes in the 1980s and 1990s that included vocalists Ian Gillan, Glenn Hughes, Ray Gillen and Tony Martin, as well as several drummers and bassists. In 1991, Iommi and Butler rejoined drummer Vinny Appice to record Dehumanizer; the original line-up released a live album Reunion. Black Sabbath's final studio album and nineteenth overall, 13, features all of the original members but Ward, who left the band prior to the recording sessions due to a contract dispute. A year after embarking on a farewell tour, the band played their final concert in their home city of Birmingham on 4 February 2017, after which they broke up.
Iommi has stated that he has not ruled out the possibility of new material or one-off shows under the Black Sabbath name. They were ranked by MTV as the "Greatest Metal Band" of all time, placed second in VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock" list. Rolling Stone magazine ranked them number 85 in their "100 Greatest Artists of All Time", they have sold over 70 million records worldwide. Black Sabbath were inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006, they have won two Grammy Awards for Best Metal Performance, in 2019 the band were presented a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Following the break-up of their previous band Mythology in 1968, guitarist Tony Iommi and drummer Bill Ward sought to form a heavy blues rock band in Aston, Birmingham, they enlisted bassist Geezer Butler and vocalist Ozzy Osbourne, who had played together in a band called Rare Breed, Osbourne having placed an advertisement in a local music shop: "Ozzy Zig Needs Gig – has own PA".
The new group was named the Polka Tulk Blues Band, the name taken either from a brand of talcum powder or an Indian/Pakistani clothing shop. The Polka Tulk Blues Band included slide guitarist Jimmy Phillips, a childhood friend of Osbourne's, saxophonist Alan "Aker" Clarke. After shortening the name to Polka Tulk, the band again changed their name to Earth and continued as a four-piece without Phillips and Clarke. Iommi became concerned that Phillips and Clarke lacked the necessary dedication and were not taking the band seriously. Rather than asking them to leave, they instead decided to break up and quietly reformed the band as a four-piece. While the band was performing under the Earth title, they recorded several demos written by Norman Haines such as "The Rebel", "Song for Jim", "When I Came Down"; the demo titled. Jim Simpson was a manager for the bands Bakerloo Blues Line and Tea & Symphony, as well as being trumpet player for the group Locomotive. Simpson had started a new club named Henry's Blueshouse at The Crown Hotel in Birmingham and offered to let Earth play there after they agreed to waive the usual support band fee in return for free t-shirts.
The audience response was positive and Simpson agreed to manage Earth. In December 1968, Iommi abruptly left Earth to join Jethro Tull. Although his stint with the band would be short-lived, Iommi made an appearance with Jethro Tull on The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus TV show. Unsatisfied with the direction of Jethro Tull, Iommi returned to Earth in January 1969. "It just wasn't right, so I left", Iommi said. "At first I thought Tull were great, but I didn't much go for having a leader in the band, Ian Anderson's way. When I came back from Tull, I came back with a new attitude altogether, they taught me that to get on, you got to work for it."While playing shows in England in 1969, the band discovered they were being mistaken for another English group named Earth. They decided to change their name again. A cinema across the street from the band's rehearsal room was showing the 1963 horror film Black Sabbath starring Boris Karloff and directed by Mario Bava. While watching people line up to see the film, Butler noted that it was "strange that people spend so much money to see scary movies".
Following that and Butler wrote the lyrics for a song called "Black Sabbath", which was
Puscifer is an American rock supergroup formed in Los Angeles by Maynard James Keenan, known as the lead singer of the bands Tool and A Perfect Circle. As Keenan is the only permanent member, he considers the project to be his "creative subconscious." In light of this, Puscifer is considered a pseudonym for his solo work. Puscifer's original name was Umlaut, "a premiere improvisational hardcore band"; the name "Puscifer" was first publicized as a fictional band in the first episode of Mr. Show, including Keenan and Adam Jones as members. Jones is not associated with Puscifer otherwise, although artwork by Jones has been featured on Puscifer apparel. Keenan describes Puscifer as "simply a playground for the various voices in my head, a space with no clear or discernible goals, where my Id, Anima all come together to exchange cookie recipes." Keenan has been working on short films with Ford Englerth and Jeffrey Brooks from Red Rock Entertainment Development that may be shown on an upcoming tour.
These shorts are done in a similar manner to that of Mr. Tom Waits' Big Time. Puscifer is "as much a clothing line as it is a band", with the clothing items produced in limited numbers. Keenan collaborated on a leather jacket with Paul Frank. On September 16, 2008, Keenan updated the puscifer.com blog, revealing that the first Puscifer store would be opening "hopefully" by October 1 in Jerome, Arizona. Occupying a small space above a tattoo parlor, the store opened on October 3, 2008.

Further mixing would be done by Alan Moulder by August. Keenan announced at the end of July that the album would be titled "V" Is for Vagina and, a few days he announced that the first single would be "Queen B." with a video released in late September. On October 1, "Queen B." appeared on the podcast on puscifer.com. This was followed by the podcast release of "Trekka" on October 7; the album was released on October 30 and debuted at number 25 on the Billboard 200, as well as number 1 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart. On October 17, 2008, an official music video for the song "Momma Sed" was released online via the official Puscifer YouTube channel.

Instagram is a photo and video-sharing social networking service owned by Facebook, Inc. It was created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, launched in October 2010 on iOS. A version for Android devices was released a year and half in April 2012, followed by a feature-limited website interface in November 2012, apps for Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 in April 2016 and October 2016 respectively; the app allows users to upload photos and videos to the service, which can be edited with various filters, organized with tags and location information. An account's posts can be shared publicly or with pre-approved followers. Users can browse other users' content by tags and locations, view trending content. Users can "like" photos, follow other users to add their content to a feed; the service was distinguished by only allowing content to be framed in a square aspect ratio, but these restrictions were eased in 2015. The service added messaging features, the ability to include multiple images or videos in a single post, as well as "Stories"—similar to its main competitor Snapchat—which allows users to post photos and videos to a sequential feed, with each post accessible by others for 24 hours each.
After its launch in 2010, Instagram gained popularity, with one million registered users in two months, 10 million in a year, 800 million as of September 2017. In April 2012, Facebook acquired the service for US$1 billion in cash and stock; as of October 2015, over 40 billion photos had been uploaded to the service. Although praised for its influence, Instagram has been the subject of criticism, most notably for policy and interface changes, allegations of censorship, illegal or improper content uploaded by users; as of 14 January 2019, the most liked photo on Instagram is a picture of an egg, posted by the account @world_record_egg, created with a sole purpose of surpassing the previous record of 18 million likes on a Kylie Jenner post. The picture has over 50 million likes. Instagram began development in San Francisco, when Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger chose to focus their multi-featured HTML5 check-in project, Burbn, on mobile photography; as Krieger reasoned, Burbn became too similar to Foursquare, both realized that it had gone too far.
Burbn was pivoted to become more focused on photo-sharing. The word Instagram is a portmanteau of instant telegram. On March 5, 2010, Systrom closed a $500,000 seed funding round with Baseline Ventures and Andreessen Horowitz while working on Burbn. Josh Riedel joined the company in October as Community Manager, Shayne Sweeney joined in November as an engineer, Jessica Zollman joined as a Community Evangelist in August 2011. Kevin Systrom posted the first photo to Instagram on July 16, 2010; the photo shows Systrom's girlfriend's foot. On October 6, 2010, the Instagram iOS app was released through the App Store. In February 2011, it was reported that Instagram had raised $7 million in Series A funding from a variety of investors, including Benchmark Capital, Jack Dorsey, Chris Sacca, Adam D'Angelo; the deal valued Instagram at around $20 million. On April 3, 2012, Instagram was released for Android phones, it was downloaded more than one million times in less than one day. In March 2012, The Wall Street Journal reported that Instagram was raising a new round of financing that would value the company at $500 million, details that were confirmed the following month, when Instagram raised $50 million from venture capitalists with a $500 million valuation.
The same month, Facebook bought Instagram for $1 billion in cash and stock, with a plan to keep the company independently managed. Britain's Office of Fair Trading approved the deal on August 14, 2012, on August 22, 2012, the Federal Trade Commission in the U. S. closed its investigation. On September 6, 2012, the deal between Instagram and Facebook was closed; the deal, made just prior to Facebook's scheduled IPO, cost about a quarter of Facebook's cash-on-hand, according to figures documented at the end of 2011. The deal was for a company characterized as having "lots of buzz but no business model", the price was contrasted with the $35 million Yahoo! paid for Flickr in 2005. Mark Zuckerberg noted that Facebook was "committed to building and growing Instagram independently", in contrast to its past practices. According to Wired, the deal netted Systrom $400 million based on his ownership stake in the business; the exact purchase price was 23 million shares of stock. In November 2012, Instagram launched website profiles, allowing anyone to see users' feeds from their web browsers.
However, the website interface was limited in functionality, with notable omissions including the lack of a search bar, a news feed, the ability to upload photos. In February 2013, the website was updated to offer a news feed, in June 2015, the website was redesigned to offer bigger photos. On October 22, 2013, during the Nokia World event held in Abu Dhabi, Systrom confirmed the upcoming release of the official Instagram app for Windows Phone, after pressure from Nokia and the public to develop an app for the platform; the app was released as a beta version on November 21, 2013, was lacking the ability to record and upload video, though an Instagram spokesperson stated that "We're not finished, our team will continue developing the Windows Phone app to keep releasing features and bringing you the best Instagram possible". In April 2016, Instagram upgraded the app to Windows 10 Mobile, adding support for video and direct messages, followed by updates in October 2016 that
