OUT NOW! Slipknot, Jeff Hanneman, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Children Of Bodom, Free Posters, Free CD, Loads
HAMMER SMASH! SLIPKNOT are back, motherfuckers! Des Moines’ finest return to rip Donington to shreds next month, and return to our cover for the biggest and most exclusive interview with the Iowa legends you will read this year.
Corey, Joey and Clown talk frankly about Download, their ongoing legacy as one of the greatest metal bands of the modern era, how far they’ve come in their attempts to move on from the loss of Paul Gray and, of course, whether we’re any closer to a new Slipknot album. It’s big, it’s bold and it’s only in our new issue, on sale right now! We even get the drop on JOEY JORDISON’s brand new band.
Plus, LOOK AT HOW FUCKING AWESOME THAT COVER IS!!!! IT WAS DRAWN BY PROFESSIONAL COMIC PEOPLE AND FOLDS OUT AND EVERYTHING!!!!
Amazing freebies? We shit ‘em. As well as a FREE IRON MAIDEN POSTER PACK, the new issue’s also packing a FREE ANTHEMS OF REBELLION CD, featuring the likes of Heart Of A Coward, Carcer City, Erlen Meyer, Sectioned and Empress!
Also in the new issue – of which you can order a special, limited edition hard copy right here – we have a special JEFF HANNEMAN tribute, featuring thoughts and messages from some of his closest friends and peers, as well as some heartwarming, never-before-heard anecdotes that shed some light on the man behind those Slayer songs. RIP, brother.
What links Pantera and Hilary Duff? BRING ME THE HORIZON’s Oli Sykes, obviously. Confused? You will be when you read his Discs Of Doom…Oh, and speaking of discs, you may have possibly heard that BLACK SABBATH have a new album out soon. You may have also possibly heard that we’re a bit excited about it. We talk to Messrs Osbourne, Iommi and Butler as 13 finally draws near, and find out if the album itself lives up to 34 years of waiting. Fingers crossed…
We also pay homage to The Man, The Myth, The Elvis-Voiced legend that is DANZIG as he prepares to return to the UK, send hails to AMON AMARTH as they reveal some of the mythology behind their new album (hint: there’s Vikings in it), take a look at why heavy metal actors are popping up all over the damn place and ask CHILDREN OF BODOM frontman Alexi Laiho if his boozing has damaged the band’s progress as much as it’s probably damaged his liver.
Plus: THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN explain why they’re harbouring metal’s own Toxic Twins, IN THIS MOMENT’s Maria Brink draws the line between selling and selling out, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and BLEED FROM WITHIN get chummy and we find out how the hell a music lecturer managed to get SERJ TANKIAN, DEVIN TOWNSEND and IHSAHN to join in with his new charity project. What a hero.
All this plus our awesome ORCHID Subterranea cover feature, reviews of all the essential heavy shit you need in your life this month and our special guide to the hidden gems at DOWNLOAD 2013!
