Fans of Sevendust, Alter Bridge and Creed may have a new favorite band in Projected. The supergroup features Sevendust guitarist John Connolly and bass player Vince Hornsby, Alter Bridge / Creed drummer Scott Phillips and Creed and Tremonti guitarist Eric Friedman, and now, the guys have announced that they’re ready to unveil their debut album.
Sevendust are back, and they’ve slapped an official date for when they’ll start recording their upcoming new album! The Atlanta-based metallers will hit the studio on Sept. 5 to start work on the new release, which will be the follow-up to the band’s 2010 set, “Cold Day Memory.”
This year marks a big one in Creed’s musical trajectory, as the post-grunge boys are commemorating the 15th anniversary of their fundamental 1997 album, ‘My Own Prison,’ with a cross-country tour. Singer Scott Stapp, guitarist Mark Tremonti, bass player Brian Marshall and drummer Scott Phillips will play their ‘My Own Prison’ and ‘Human Clay’ albums back-to-back on different evenings of the trek, so expect to hear plenty of hits and more obscure cuts, to boot.
Vancouver, British Columbia-based hard rock quartet the Veer Union first grabbed the attention of the rock community with their 2009 radio hit, ‘Seasons.’ Now, the gentlemen are back with a new album, ‘Divide the Blackened Sky,’ and the disc is jam-packed with fast, hard riffing and lead singer Crispin Earl’s always-soulful vocals.
Corrosion of Conformity have been making the heaviest of music for roughly three decades. Of course, a lot has changed since these punk-metal gents first started out in the ‘80s; notably, the Internet has altered the playing field. Drummer Reed Mullin is taking all the change in stride and even finds little humor in the many various names people have made up to describe different genres of music these days.
Alternative metal bigwigs Korn are taking their heavy sounds to Europe right now, before they head back to the States to kick off the second leg of their massively successful The Path of Totality tour. While playing a gig in Italy, guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer offered up some thoughts about the band’s current full-length, ‘The Path of Totality,’ and how the band took chances on this set by incorporating dubstep into the mix.
Miss Trivium’s stint at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, this weekend? No worries, because a video of their acoustic performance of the single ‘Built to Fall’ at the festival has surfaced online. Apparently, South by Southwest couldn’t handle Trivium’s plugged-in power, so they had to go acoustic, which is a treat for fans that are used to seeing the band completely amped up. Watch the video, below.
In honor of the 30th anniversary of Ozzy Osbourne’s pivotal metal releases, ‘Blizzard of Ozz,’ and, ‘Diary of a Madman,’ camp Osbourne recently unleashed re-mastered issues of both albums, including a box set toting previously unreleased live tapings, a coffee table book and other metal-happy goodies.
Fans had to practice major patience leading up to the release of Anthrax’s latest album, ‘Worship Music,’ as the album was the band’s first since 2003’s ‘We’ve Come for You All.’ Thankfully, it was worth the wait, and ‘Worship Music’ seamlessly unites the velocity and ferocity of metal with the lightning-fast speed of thrash.
