Black Sabbath, Bullet For My Valentine, Rammstein, FREE Posters, FREE CD, Newsted, Motionless In White…On Sale Tomorrow, Folks!
Get the incense burners out. The new issue of Metal Hammer is a truly magickal Occult Rock Special, headlined by the mighty triumvirate of BLACK SABBATH, KING DIAMOND and GHOST!
We look at the return of one of the darkest, most enthralling subcultures to have ever risen in our world, with the likes of ELECTRIC WIZARD, ANCIENT VVISDOM,UNCLE ACID AND THE DEADBEATS, PENTAGRAM and IN SOLITUDE all leading the charge in 2013. Bring your best robes and come get yourself some.
As if that wasn’t heavy enough (it definitely is), we also have a FREE SATANIC DOOMADELICA CD, featuring the likes of BLOODY HAMMERS, RUBY THE HATCHET, SWILSON and others, plus free CLUTCH and MASTODON posters. Mmmmm, free stuff.
Also in the new issue, we celebrate the ludicrous, brilliant and ludicrously brilliant videography of the one and only RAMMSTEIN, try to work out what the fuck djent/trance/death metal/dub step/reggae one-man-genre-smasher THE ALGORITHM is all about, and welcome back BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, who, as we quickly discovered, are harnessing Matt Tuck’s AxeWound experience to take some big risks with Temper Temper.
Also making a triumphant comeback is a certain former Metallica bassist by the name of JASON NEWSTED, packing a freakin’ sweet new EP (called Metal, how awesome?!), a new band and some incredible stories from his life with the Biggest Metal Band On The Planet and beyond. Plus, the return of THE BRONX, Chris from MOTIONLESS IN WHITE’s most life-changing albums, BUCKCHERRY doing a concept album (lolwhut?) and why EMMURE have become controversy’s new favourite sons.
Biff from SAXON takes us down memory lane, through everything from that difficult 90s period to being rumoured as a guest judge on, um, X Factor, while heavy metal’s Queen incarnate DORO sits down with young pretender KOBRA PAIGE for a good ol’ chiwag, and we give the amazing career of Canadian prog kings RUSH the full rundown.
Not bad, eh? Oh, and we also talk to heavy metal cellist TINA GUO, pay tribute to MINISTRY guitar legend MIKE SCACCIA, get cinematic with WEDNESDAY 13 and, in this month’s Subterranea, hail the genre-defining majesty of the one and only GODFLESH.
All this plus reviews of Cradle Of Filth, Rammstein, HIM, The Prodigy and the incredible Mitch Lucker tribute show? You gotta be smoking something spectacular to not want in on this. It’s officially on sale TOMORROW, but you can order your copy right now below:
