The Weeknd unleashes music video for fresh single 'Starboy', featuring Daft Punk -
Canadian artist The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) has released the music video to accompany his new single "Starboy", featuring French electronic music duo Daft Punk. The singer/songwriter has also earmarked November 25 as the drop date for his next album -- also titled "Starboy" -- which is the follow-up to his acclaimed second studio album, "Beauty Behind The Madness". The clip for "Starboy" is a nod to the birth of his new persona via the record, and sees the artist noticeably change his physical appearance, with the video depicting the transition via a shot of a masked Tesfaye killing his former persona while he is gagged and tied to a dining chair (via NME).

We've launched a new section where we feature reviews of music software (mainly plugins, VST, VSTi, DX, DXi) every now and then. We'll usually provide sample mp3 files available for download so you can audition the software. We've also formed a section where all the contests and their respective winners are announced (participation to these giveaways is naturally free).
There's a stripped-down version of RockReviews now available for users with handheld computers (PDA) and mobile phones with web browsing capability. It's called Rough.RockReviews
For the most part, it has the same content as on the main site, though not all sections are included. Every CD and DVD review of music and music videos related to rock and metal can be found there, but software reviews aren't included (so be sure to continue visiting the main site as well).
