New Issue Of Metal Hammer Out Now!
12 FREE POSTERS! FREE DJENT CD! AND…METALLICA!
Yea-heah! We have 11 pages of exclusive METALLICA. What awaits us when the mighty Big 4 finally descend upon Sonisphere at Knebworth? What’s next for the mightiest metal band of all time? And with the 25th anniversary of Master of Puppets, the 20th anniversary of the Black Album, and the 30th anniversary of the band’s formation, what’s next for one of the biggest bands of all time? What’s this about James Hetfield’s new movie? And who, or what, is Grimey?
We go into the studio with TRIVIUM for an exclusive about their new album, as well as DEVIN TOWNSEND, NIGHTWISH, RISE TO REMAIN and FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH studio updates. We hit the road for our very own Razor tour with SYLOSIS, WHILE SHE SLEEPS, BLEED FROM WITHIN and ANTERIOR. Which, FYI, was fucking carnage! Also Ex-SYLOSIS frontman Jamie Graham dishes the dirt on his departure from the band and his own future!
We speak to ragga metallers SKINDRED about their simply awesome new album, ‘Union Black’; conscious punks RISE AGAINST get angry about punk integrity; and PROTEST THE HERO reign themselves in. But not much. At all.
GODSIZED tell us about their slow-burn rise; THE HAUNTED’S Peter Dolving walks us through his dark past; we ask all those difficult questions to MOTORHEAD mainman, LEMMY and we tell the story of the creation of DANZIG’S iconic debut album.
We review: FOO FIGHTERS, ASKING ALEXANDRIA, CHILDREN OF BODOM, LOWER THAN ATLANTIS, LETLIVE, SKINDRED and tons more. And we’ve been out and about reviewing shows too: BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, SYLOSIS, EUROPE, BLACK SPIDERS, DEVIL SOLD HIS SOUL, OVERKILL, EPICA, MY RUIN, DOWN, RISE AGAINST, BONDED BY BLOOD, YOUR DEMISE and GLAMOUR OF THE KILL.
There are interviews with post-hardcore crew WE ARE THE OCEAN, retro rockers RIVALS SONS, former Gunner DUFF MCKAGAN, UK newbies HEART IN HAND, clever dick metallers BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, Southern stalwarts UNDEROATH, thrashers HAVOK and the legendary WASP!
Up the back we also speak to PRIMORDIAL, ALTAR OF PLAGUES, CRUACHAN and many more! The mag also has all the latest GOLDEN GOD Awards details with more details announced!
The magazine also comes with 15 tracks from the burgeoning and broad world of djent – the progressive scene that’s taking the world by storm – featuring ARCHITECTS, MESHUGGAH, TESSERACT, PERIPHERY, AFTER THE BURIAL, SCALE THE SUMMIT, XERATH, BORN OF OSIRIS and many more!
As well as all that, the mag also comes with 12 posters in our Download Poster Pack! BRING ME THE HORIZON, ROB ZOMBIE, DOWN, BLACK VEIL BRIDES, THE DAMNED THINGS, DISTURBED, THE PRETTY RECKLESS (hawt), SYSTEM OF A DOWN, TRASH TALK, RISE TO REMAIN, KORN and GWAR!
