Their live set is both “heavy/sinister and sweet/vulnerable,” as they put it. In their tongue-in-cheek love song “Crush,” Freeman sings about how much she’d like to cut off her new boyfriend’s skin so she could turn him into covers and stay forever close to him, and if anybody dared to say anything unkind about him, she’d set their house on fire. Such demented devotion is heartfelt indeed! And coming from one of “The Top 20 Most Extraordinary Female Guitarists,” according to Guitar Player Magazine—Revolver, the “World’s Loudest Rock Magazine,” called her the “Hottest Chick In Hard Rock”—that’s certainly saying something. More darkly entertaining delights for their die-hard fans (and novitiates) lie in wait. With Halo to Havoc, Life After Death, Plague of Humanity and Discipline Theory.

1 Timo Horn is tipped to be Manuel Neuer’s long-term successor Liverpool are lining up an approach for highly-rated German goalkeeper Timo Horn this summer.The FC Koln stopper, 22, has been tipped as the long-term successor to Manuel Neuer in the German national team after an impressive campaign in the Bundesliga.Liverpool are on the hunt for a new goalkeeper to provide competition for Simon Mignolet next season and Horn is understood to be on their shortlist of considered targets.According to Bild, Liverpool have been monitoring Horn’s progress closely this term, with Jurgen Klopp understood to be a huge admirer of the youngster’s raw ability.Horn’s current contract with FC Koln still has three years to run but he is believed to have a release clause of around £7m which makes him a cheap option for Liverpool.Horn has kept eight clean sheets in 32 games for FC Koln this term and has featured for all of Germany’s youth sides but has yet to be handed a cap at senior level.
Louis van Gaal believes Crystal Palace will play a defensive style in the FA Cup final, knowing full well that Manchester United are favourites for the clash.The two teams face off at Wembley on Saturday looking to win their only silverware of the season, and you can listen to all the action live on talkSPORT.The final is a repeat of the 1990 edition, which the Red Devils won after a replay, and this time, as it was then, Van Gaal’s team are favourites.They have been the best defensive team in the Premier League this season, whilst Palace have struggled for goals – netting just 39 in their 38 league games this season.Neutral fans are just hoping for an entertaining game of football, but Van Gaal cannot see such a situation, as he believes the Eagles will set-up defensively against their stronger opponents.“You always need two attacking sides, then you always get a fantastic match,” the Dutchman explained.“I think they shall defend very small spaces and then counter because they have a lot of speed in attack.“It shall be very difficult, but you cannot always predict a final.”Given Van Gaal’s preference for defensive football, it is slightly ironic that he suggests Palace will be the reason for a poor final.The Red Devils have built a reputation as one of the most boring English teams to watch this season, and although the Dutchman claims he would love his team to ‘win beautiful’, he still believes winning is more important than the style of a performance.He continued: “Of course the starting point is to perform well, to win beautiful…to score beautiful goals.“But a 1-0 win, for me, is also enough because winning is the most important thing in a final.“When you lose you have nothing.” 1 Louis van Gaal’s men take on Crystal Palace on Saturday
