Hessler battles Youtube

Early this morning, Hessler (, a metal band out of Chicago, reported that their video for the single "Waste Away" was removed "because it was getting too many views" on media giant YouTube. A spokesperson from Hessler stated on the facebook page "An unsigned band has 23,000 views and you delete it, yet you see bands with ZERO promotional skills have a video jump from 6,000 views to 239,000. We will not go down easy. You can't stop heavy metal." Youtube claims it was a violation of their terms, and that the band could not re-upload the video and keep the standings on views. 
Thank goodness for Vimeo...where you can still see the video in question. And of course, below.

"Ready For This" Leona X (EP Review)

First off, the title, "Ready For This", says it all...hold onto your hats for this 3-track, wild's going to take your breath away! Leona X is, in my humble opinion, this generation's Joan Jett, Lita Ford, and Pat Benetar....all rolled into one. Explosive guitars, paired with Leona's sultry, sexy vocals, make for great listening. Recorded at Seattle's infamous London Bridge Studios in the late summer of 2013, and set for worldwide distribution later this year.

Leona X

The title track prepares you for the intense ride in this 3 track EP by one of Seattle's great female musicians. Leona X, formerly of all-girl rock band, Jaggedy Ann, has shown the world her abilities on their 2006 release, "Boiling Point", along with touring shortly after in support of the release.
This EP is due out on November 1st of 2013, and the only negative thing I can say about it is there are only 3 songs to tide you over until her next stint in the studio. The track titles are as follows...
1) Ready For This?
2) Play Like the Devil
3) Love at First Feel
Leona X & her Gibson
I'm gonna say just one more thing...I LOVE THIS E.P. \,,/
