Metallica are behaving like Santa this holiday season, generously doling out previously unreleased songs from the ‘Death Magnetic’ sessions. They are essentially sonic presents! The latest new-yet-old song is ‘Hell and Back,’ which dropped last night after the band performed the song at its third (of four) anniversary show underplays for fan club members at the Fillmore in San Francisco. It’s ‘Tallica’s 30th birthday but they are the one gifting fans with songs.
The lineup for the second annual DimeBash has been announced. The show is a tribute to the late, great guitarist Dimebag Darrell Abbott, who tragically was gunned down seven years ago today, Dec. 8, in Ohio while doing what he loved most: playing guitar. He was performing with his post-Pantera band Damageplan when a disturbed fan opened fire at close range and shot him.
Zakk Wylde is a guitar deity. He’s also a good sport, as he has agreed to be the roastee for Guitar World’s first-ever Rock ‘n’ Roll Roast. Wylde will sit in the hot seat and be subjected to good-natured barbs from fellow rockers, like his former boss Ozzy Osbourne, as well as Anthrax‘s Scott Ian and Slipknot / Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor.
Red Hot Chili Peppers are transformed into graphic novel characters in the visually arresting video for ‘Monarchy of Roses,’ the second single off the band’s latest album ‘I’m With You.’ The vid, directed by Marc Klasfeld, is all black and white, with the only splash of color coming from the roses mentioned in the title, all of which fly around on the screen.
Rammstein played one of their only U.S. shows in a decade at Madison Square Garden in December 2010, a spectacle that sold out in a mere 30 minutes, given the fact that it was the first time the fire-breathing Germans stepped foot on American soil in a long, long time.
After a few weeks of hype, Season 9 of VH1 Classic’s ‘That Metal Show’ kicked off last night (which isn’t its regular night, mind you) with the mother of all interviews and on National Metal Day. The camera-shy, elusive W. Axl Rose agreed to a sit down with Eddie Trunk and co. in the early morning hours in Miami. He was rather candid and shared his thoughts on his lateness and lawsuits. He also revealed his original idea for the ‘Appetite for Destruction’ cover.
The ninth season of VH1 Classic’s ‘That Metal Show’ will launch on National Metal Day (11-11-11) and it kicks off with the biggest of all “gets” in terms of interviews, as Guns N’ Roses singer W. Axl Rose sat down with the hosts for an early morning chat a few weeks back.
It’s Axl Rose‘s world and we all just live in it and play by his rules, even in 2011. Apparently, the temperamental and interview-shy Rose, who is famous for his tardiness and doing things on his clock and whenever the hell he feels like it, granted an hour-long interview to Eddie Trunk of VH1 Classic’s ‘That Metal Show’ in the wee hours of this morning (Oct. 30). The interview took place at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Fla., around 7 in the morning!
