Bonsoir à tous ! En ce lundi 16 novembre, le best-of quotidien sera remplacé par le rassemblement d’une partie des hommages rendus à notre pays par le monde du hard rock/metal.

Prayers going out to Paris....Say NO to living in fear....CHOOSE life over cowardly suicide / homicide of the innocent.... When we kill each other, we kill ourselves...WE ARE ONE....How can there be solutions through violence? All of these and 100 other thoughts run through my head on this sad day...but mostly sorrow for the victims families...you're in our thoughts.

Hello all- Much has been said, as well as seen, on every media outlet about the events in Paris. Some of us were in attendance at the Le Bataclan, and the rest of our family, just blocks away on this night. We have been to Paris many, many times, and we’ve had some of the most amazing shows in this tremendously electric city. With this being said, and with our deepest condolences, love and respect to everyone affected, and to all of us who share this planet, we must return home to our loved ones. We will return when appropriate. For ticket holders, we will have more information soon, so please hang tight. Until then, please never forget the power of gathering, and one of the most unbelievable feelings of all: that P.M.A. With much love and respect, Deftones

This photo is from 34 weeks ago. The majority of the band had never been to Paris before and honestly probably never thought it would be possible. But music brought us there and our freedom allowed us to travel to France and gave us the privilege to play our songs to entertain a mass of people who gathered inside the confines of the beautiful venue known now Worldwide as Le Bataclan. Less than 24 hrs ago, all has changed, not just in Paris but throughout the world. The dictionary definition of FEAR is: a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc.,whether the threat is real or imagined;the feeling or condition of being afraid. The word CONDITION or CONDITIONED is defined as: characterized by a predictable or consistent pattern of behavior or thought as a result of having been subjected to certain circumstances or conditions. Im not trying to give a English lesson here, but what I am looking to say by this is, DO NOT LET THESE COWARDLY ACTS TAKE AWAY YOUR FREEDOM TO EXPRESS AND LIVE YOUR LIVES. This is a scary and saddening time...but if you allow this Fear to change your cognitive thinking, if you allow these yellow bellied, shit stains to keep you from you enjoying your lives by keeping you away from the activities you enjoy in your life, then you let them really win. Regardless of motives, the people that lost their lives lost them innocently while doing something they have the freedom to do. DO NOT ALLOW THEM TO CONDITION YOUR LIVES. STAND UP FOR PARIS STAND UP FOR THE LIVES LOST. I wish so badly that we could be there right now to help bring justice and any sort of peace possible to this beautiful city and their beautiful people. Paris, you will rise from this! #saveparis #nofear
Since we started touring we've always had a special bond to France. It's the place where we met the coolest, craziest crowds, a place where we've made so many friends, it's the rock nation above all other. Except Stockholm, Paris is the city where we've spent the most time the last ten years and France has become our second home. The sadness, the fear and the rage we feel after these horrible acts of terror cannot be described in words. Crucified Barbara ❤️ France.
CRADLE OF FILTH
Last night was a tough one for us in Berlin. Trying to go onstage after what happened in Paris the night before was not easy. It was weighing on our minds heavily but the show must go on. The German fans made it a great night and pulled us through. We even gave them two extra songs, 'The Forest Whispers My Name' and 'The Principle of Evil Made Flesh'. Not bad for a set we thought we were going to cut due to so many technical difficulties! Last night was for you, Paris. Stay strong. Tonight we are at Markthalle in a very rainy Hamburg, Germany. Love this city. Can't wait :) - Rich Shaw #cradleoffilth #paris #inquisitionaltourture #richardshaw #danifilth #hammerofthewitches #berlin #columbiatheatre

Look at the "Peace For Paris" symbol, how similar it is to one of Orphaned Land's "All Is One" symbols. Our dear beloved Parisians, our dear brothers & sisters in Paris, please send us a sign of life, tell us that you are all safe and we hope that none of you was hurt at this terrible terror attack. We wish to send our condolences to all the families who lost their beloveds, we are praying for a quick recovery to all the casualties. Last month we played in Paris, a few months ago, in April we played at the Bataclan. May peace prevail one day on our orphaned lands. #peace_for_paris

Our love and prayers go out to all those affected by the horrific attacks in Paris and Lebanon today. Those who attack concert halls, restaurants, cafes, markets and places of worship to kill innocent civilians are fucking cowards. Our Parisian fans are one of the best in the world so can't help thinking of everyone who went to the Eagles of Death Metal show.
My heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of the ones taken from us. The EODM guys are friends and we were just in Paris a couple days ago supporting Deep Purple.. As well as knowing personally many who worked that show. This one was very close to home. And to say it has affected me is an understatement... But we must perceiver...we must be strong for the ones who are here...and we will continue to lift spirits and keep energy strong through our music while completing the tour we're currently on..and future tours. Bless you France. Bless you rock n roll. We will get through this together.❤️«·
BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE
Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal
From the #NYTimes... France embodies everything religious zealots everywhere hate: enjoyment of life here on earth in a myriad little ways: a fragrant cup of coffee and buttery croissant in the morning, beautiful women in short dresses smiling freely on the street, the smell of warm bread, a bottle of wine shared with friends, a dab of perfume, children paying in the Luxembourg Gardens, the right not to believe in any god, not to worry about calories, to flirt and smoke and enjoy sex outside of marriage, to take vacations, to read any book you want, to go to school for free, to play, to laugh, to argue, to make fun of prelates and politicians alike, to leave worrying about the afterlife to the dead. No country does life on earth better than the French. Paris, we love you. We cry for you. You are mourning tonight, and we with you. We know you will laugh again, and sing again, and make love, and heal, because loving life is your essence. The forces of darkness will ebb. They will lose. They always do.
Our hearts go out to everyone in #Paris who was murdered and injured tonight. We are supposed to play in #Vaureal next Friday and I promise you, if we are allowed to play, we will do our show for any of you who still want to come. We will not let these bastards put a stop to our freedom or our joy of rock n roll. We will play for the over 100 people who died at a rock show tonight and we will play for all of you who refuse to be scared!! Maybe together we can try to get a sense of clarity and maybe forget for just a few minutes the horrors bestowed upon your great city and country tonight... J'aime la #France!!! #Fozzy #FozzyVaureal #prayforparis - CJ

I know that there's a lot of posts happening about Paris. Posts about pulling together. I too should be posting a positive symbol of Hope. We often post selfies when we're feeling good about ourselves. So I thought it only fair to post a selfie of when we're not feeling so great. See, I've been thinking for days, trying to find the right image or the right words... But I can't seem to shake off this deep deep sadness. All I can think about are the brothers, wives, girlfriends, best friends, sons and daughters, that were just hanging together having a laugh, a drink, just to hear some music. So simple. So innocent. The last thing on their minds was what was about to happen. Because it should not be happening. I mean, why. Im searching my mind for words of wisdom from all of this, and it's just black. I'm really having trouble wrapping my soul around this one. Having recently played that venue in Paris, it haunts me even more. I can't help it. I just replay it over and over in my head as if I was there. I see the venue, I'm looking out at the balcony from the stage. Imagining it's my friends, Our family, Our fans getting hurt, having their lives meaninglessly taken away from them in a matter of seconds. This is hard for me to shake. I know I'm supposed to be saying positive things, to power on, but I just feel so so sad, I feel helpless. There's nothing more painful than thinking about all those beautiful people who just wanted to go out on a friday night after a hard week's work and just be. Why couldn't they just be. How can other humans be this callous. How can they be this numb. How cold must blood run in your veins to be able to just open fire on your fellow men and women, knowing those specific people have done nothing to you. Im sorry I know this is not about me. But I feel so sorry for all those people. So sorry for your families and the pain that you're all feeling right now. I wish I could help. Wish I could wrap my heart around you and make it all go away.

After centuries of wars, terror and fear of 'the other' we have not learned a thing. The Islamic State pushes us centuries back in time with their religious war. Making victims all over the world, and now in Paris on this massive and horrible scale. I am angry, shocked and sad. And I wasn't even there. I haven't lost someone close to me. Do we need to fight fire with fire? Do we need to talk more in endless political debates? Do we need to fear every muslim on the streets and let the fear and hate cloud our judgement, again? I don't know! And who does? How do you react to such a cruel and brutal attack? There are only victims...of gunfire and intense brain washing! The evil that men do... My heart goes out to all the victims and I hope the world can reply in the right way to bring justice. If that exists. #Paris
