Greek guitar virtuoso Gus G., who joined Ozzy Osbourne's band just under a decade ago, says that "it was a little bit of a relief" to find out that the BLACK SABBATH singer was getting back together with his longtime axeman Zakk Wylde. It was announced last April that Wylde would be rejoining Ozzy's backing group for all his upcoming solo show dates. Osbourne's touring lineup also includes Rob "Blasko" Nicholson on bass, Tommy Clufetos on drums and Adam Wakeman on keyboards. Gus, who played on Ozzy's latest studio album, 2010's "Scream", said in a new interview with TrueMetal.it that he wasn't upset when he found out that Ozzy was going to be working with Zakk again. "Honestly, it was a little bit of a relief, because I was just kind of tired of waiting around for all these years, not hearing anything" about potential tours or recording activities, Gus said. "Of course, [Ozzy] was very busy with BLACK SABBATH — I understand that — but then in between of all that, there would be all these one-off [solo Ozzy] shows popping up and I had to make myself available for that. But there was never any… I felt like there was no… I didn't see stuff coming up for the future, you know? So, as much as I loved being in that band and working with him, in a way, it was a little bit of a dead end for me, speaking personally. Of course, now he's gonna go...
Former DREAM THEATER and current SONS OF APOLLO drummer Mike Portnoy was recently interviewed on "Speak N' Destroy", a podcast about all things METALLICA, hosted by longtime journalist and METALLICA fan Ryan J. Downey. You can now listen to the chat using the SoundCloud widget below. Speaking about METALLICA's inconsistent catalogue of music, which has included "Lulu", the critically panned and commercially unsuccessful 2011 collaboration with Lou Reed, Portnoy said: "That's the incredible thing about METALLICA. As much as they are the biggest metal band of all time and they've made some of the… I mean, the 'Black Album' and 'Master Of Puppets' and 'Kill 'Em All', these are the greatest metal albums of all time, but they've also had such incredible misses as well. It's crazy. Never has such a huge, huge band also had so many [critically panned releases]. I mean, 'Lulu' — oh my God! The fact that they made an album like that, or what they did with 'St. Anger', or, in my opinion, with 'Load' and 'Reload' albums. So they're not invincible. They're not like THE BEATLES where everything they touched was perfect and classic and is gold. They've had these missteps as well, but it just never seemed to stop them." Portnoy also talked about METALLICA's controversial 2003 LP "St. Anger", which was criticized by many fans for its lack of guitar solos, extended riffs, its raw production and the thin drum sound. "There's no question, it's an incredibly weird album," Mike said. "As much...
Vinnie Vincent has confirmed plans to write and publish his autobiography. Speaking to the "Talking Metal" podcast, the former KISS guitarist said the book will contain "all the real answers — the in-depth answers to everything… everything, everything, everything. Because when I give interviews, I give part of the answer, but there's no way you're gonna be able to hear everything — 'cause it's too deep, it's too dark, and it's places that I'm gonna go only once, and when I do, it's not gonna be in front of an audience until the book actually does come out," he said (hear audio below). According to Vincent, no stone will be left unturned in an effort to provide a true account of his life so far. "I've been away 20 years, not by choosing, but because of events that happened," he said. "So those events will be really talked about in uncomfortable depth — because it's cathartic, number one; number two, the fans deserve to know; and I deserve to tell it. And it's nice to be back, but you can only be back unless… The meaning of being back, the reason and the meaningfulness of being back can only depend on the resolve of the past. So the future has to be dependent on how the past is resolved; otherwise, the future is never really… [it never] sets its pace in firm ground. So, in order for me to feel like I'm moving forward, I cannot look back anymore. So it...
VIOLATION WOUND, the punk rock/metal band formed by Chris Reifert (DEATH, ABSCESS, AUTOPSY) on guitar and vocals, will release its new album, "With Man In Charge", on April 27 via Peaceville Records. Two songs from the disc, "Fearmonger" and "State Of Alarm", can be streamed below. VIOLATION WOUND was born in a beer- and whiskey-soaked basement in June of 2013, driven to create 100 percent real punk rock. Nothing trendy, nothing wimpy, nothing pretentious, just fuelled by aggression and kick-ass riffs. VIOLATION WOUND is not interested in modern, plastic or safe crap, instead honoring the raw, dirty and pissed off ways of the original innovators, while carving out a path all their own. Featuring Reifert alongside bassist Joe Orterry and drummer Matt O'Connell, "With Man In Charge" is VIOLATION WOUND's first release for Peaceville, offering psychotic blasts of punk-injected madness over 20 tracks. Joining VIOLATION WOUND on "With Man In Charge" are guests Athenar of U.S. act MIDNIGHT and Dave Hill, having recently collaborated with Chris in the rock act PAINTED DOLL. The disc was recorded at Earhammer Studios in Oakland, California with Greg Wilkinson (AUTOPSY), featuring cover artwork created by Wes Benscoter (AUTOPSY, SLAYER, NILE). Reifert states: "We at VIOLATION WOUND headquarters are really fucking psyched to be working with Peaceville Records. "We poured a lot of outrage, madness, aggression, and just plain ass-kicking into our new album, 'With Man In Charge', and we think our intentions will be heard loud and clear for anyone who gets their eardrums wrapped around this...
IN THIS MOMENT has released a teaser for the official music video for the song "Black Wedding". The track, which features a guest appearance by JUDAS PRIEST frontman Rob Halford, is taken from IN THIS MOMENT's latest album, "Ritual", which came out last July. IN THIS MOMENT singer Maria Brink said that having Halford guest on "Ritual" was "an honor." She also told "DOMKcast" that the PRIEST singer added his vocals after all the other parts were already laid down. "We actually recorded the song first, we had all of our stuff on it, and then he came in afterward and put his parts into it," she said. "But we had already kind of shown him [how we wanted it to sound]." According to Brink, "it's pretty common nowadays" for musicians to collaborate on records without actually being in the studio together, "because artists are always doing something — some of them are on tour" or in different parts of the world. "When I did our song on our last album with Brent [Smith] from SHINEDOWN, it was the same thing — we weren't in the studio at the same time," she said. "I wish we could be in the studio at the same time — it feels like it could be more connecting or something like that — but it went down this way. But it doesn't matter." Maria added that "Black Wedding" is "definitely gonna be a single. And I think that's gonna be a favorite, for sure, on this album....

On February 2, 2002, his doctors shut off his life support, leaving him to die in his sleep. He had no previous known health problems, and the stroke was a complete surprise to everyone around him. On the fifth anniversary of Baloff's passing, Holt stated about his late bandmate: "His contribution to metal lives on. How else can you explain how a guy can record one album (twice!) and still...

The band states: "Earlier today we found out Jesse [Leach, vocals] needs to have surgery to repair an issue with his vocal cords.

DIO DISCIPLES, which pays tribute to Ronnie James Dio and is fully supported by Dio's widow/manager Wendy, is about to sign a deal with BMG for the release of the band's debut album. DIO DISCIPLES is made up of former members of DIO, along with a rotating lineup of vocalists, including ex-JUDAS PRIEST singer Tim "Ripper" Owens and LYNCH MOB frontman Oni Logan. Billed as a "celebration of the music and legacy of the greatest singer in the world, Ronnie James Dio," DIO DISCIPLES have been playing Ronnie's music on tour in a bid to keep their old bandmate's memory alive. Several years ago, guitarist Craig Goldy revealed DIO DISCIPLES were planning to start work on a project of original material, and they debuted three of the new songs during their May 2016 appearance at the "Ride For Ronnie" motorcycle rally and concert in Encino, California. Fan-filmed video footage of one of the tracks, which is apparently called "Till The End Of Time", can be seen below. In a brand new interview with the "Wired In The Empire" radio show, which airs on Riverside/San Bernardino, California's 96.7 KCAL-FM, Wendy stated about DIO DISCIPLES: "We're just about to sign a record deal with BMG for them to start making a new record." Confirming that the debut DIO DISCIPLES album would include "all new material," Wendy said that the members of the band have "written about five songs already and were "very excited" about the opportunity to work with BMG.

This is your opportunity to possess the experience of THE DARKNESS live, as perceived by your ears, leaving your eyes free to scan the road ahead for obstacles, or to watch Emmerdale with the sound off, or to mould clay, or to darn socks, or to look at the beautiful artwork in this magnificent gatefold.

Tony Harnell says that singing for SKID ROW was a "great experience" for him, despite the fact that he lasted less than a year as the frontman of the formerly New Jersey-based outfit. Harnell joined SKID ROW in April 2015 as the replacement for Johnny Solinger, who was the band's frontman for fifteen years. Tony quit the group only eight months later, explaining in a Facebook post that "being ignored and disrespected isn't my thing." In a recent interview with "The Classic Metal Show", Harnell said that he had no regrets about the time he spent with SKID ROW. "I don't have a lot to say about it," he said about his exit from SKID ROW. "[Being in the band] was a great experience for me. I got to play a lot of shows in the U.S., which I hadn't done in a long time with TNT outside of the acoustic shows that I do on my own. So it was really great to reconnect with a lot of American fans all over the country. And I got to play León, Mexico, which was really, really amazing. Honestly, it was a really good experience for me on many levels. I'm not gonna get into the dirty details per se, but it was a good experience." He continued: "I think [SKID ROW guitarist] Snake [Dave Sabo] did an interview recently where he pretty much said what needed to be said. What he said reminded me of what scene in [the] 'Rock Star' [movie]… And...
LINKIN PARK vocalist Mike Shinoda will release his debut solo album, "Post Traumatic", on June 15. The singer/producer released three new solo tracks as a digital EP in late January. Also titled "Post Traumatic", the set directly addressed the death of LINKIN PARK bandmate Chester Bennington and Shinoda's own anxiety over what would come next. Speaking with ET Canada's Matte Babel, Shinoda stated about the songwriting process for "Post Traumatic" (see video below): "It started in a really dark place. In the beginning, I wasn't leaving my house. It felt very claustrophobic, having lost one of my closest friends and collaborators. We associate who we are, to some degree, with what we do, so I felt very lost." He continued: "The experience of this last year has been crazy, and I wanted to put it into music, not only to just put a stamp on it and say, 'This happened,' but also to allow the fans and the people who have been along for the ride, to guide them on that journey in terms of keeping up with my narrative or understanding where I'm at." Asked how difficult the emotional process was of making the music and writing those kinds of songs, Mike said: "Life was difficult; music was easy. The music made things easier. We started talking about, 'What about mental health? Do you wanna get involved with, for example, suicide prevention? Do you wanna get involved with organizations that deal with depression and so on, even addiction?' And I thought,...
Fan-filmed video footage of Y&T's April 22 performance at The Canyon in Agoura Hills, California can be seen below. Y&T is still working on its long-awaited documentary, "On With The Show", to be released before the end of the year. "It's been taking an extremely long time to get that thing sorted out," frontman Dave Meniketti told Tigman of the Albany, New York radio station Q103 in a recent interview. "The documentary filmmakers just had no idea how much work was involved and how many different artists wanted to be in the documentary and so on and so forth, so it's taken a whole lot longer than they expected. But I just want all the fans out there to know that it is gonna happen, it is gonna come out sometime this year. I have no idea when, but we just keep prodding them back home and saying, 'Cmon, guys. You almost done yet?' But it's turning out fantastic. I've seen a lot of the footage, as have all the guys in the band, and we've had nothing but great feedback from all of us." "On With The Show" is expected to contain commentary from a number of other artists, including Don Dokken (DOKKEN), Dee Snider (TWISTED SISTER), Sammy Hagar (VAN HALEN, MONTROSE), Eric Martin (MR. BIG) and the members of ANVIL. The film is being built out of the hundreds of hours of personal footage shot over the years. It is set to cover the band's earliest days of rehearsing...
JUDAS PRIEST bassist Ian Hill was recently interviewed by Peoria's classic rock station 95.5 GLO. You can now listen to the chat using the SoundCloud widget below. Speaking about JUDAS PRIEST's new album, "Firepower", entering the Billboard 200 chart at position No. 5, making it the band's highest-charting album ever, Hill said: "Who would have thought that? [For] our band, [which] is knocking fifty years, to still be popular and relevant enough, I suppose, in today's world to be able to achieve that. It took everybody by surprise, I think. It's a great achievement though, and we're hugely thankful for it." Asked why he thinks PRIEST's music has endured so long, Hill said: "I think it's because we try and keep current. With every album and tour cycle, we try and take a step forward. I mean, we're still learning things every day, basically, and we, like I say, try and improve with each cycle, and I think it's kept us current and relevant. Some bands, they'll do basically the same album over and over again, and people love 'em for it — I love 'em for it — but it's something we've never done.; we've always tried to move along. [If there's] a new recording technique, we'll give it a try, and if it works, great; if not, it gets discarded and we move on. I think it's that more than anything that's kept us going and kept us popular anyway — it's the quest to stay current, basically." 2014's...
The new band featuring three members of the classic DOKKEN lineup along with former LYNCH MOB and current WARRANT singer Robert Mason is about "three-quarters of the way done" recording its debut album. Mason told the "Talking Metal" podcast that working with George Lynch, Jeff Pilson and Mick Brown has "given all of us a renewed sense of what it was like to be creating together and maybe even playing together. Jeff Pilson and I get along great," he said. "Jeff produced 'Louder Harder Faster', the new WARRANT record. And he and I have always been kind of friendly but didn't really know each other until that project, and we got on so well in the studio and elsewhere that it was a real easy tie-in for those three guys to call me up and say, 'Hey, man, we wanna do this record. We don't know what we're gonna call it, but it'll have the DNA of our bands, and it'll be us, but we want it to sound a little different. What do you think?' And I was all over it." According to Robert, the recording sessions for the new band's debut disc are "going really, really well. We're super happy with it," he said. "I just hope everybody else digs it the way we do. You never know. People could hate it; I don't know. But I hope not. I sincerely hope everybody embraces it for what it is." Mason also revealed that SUPER STROKE, which was originally announced...
Kyle Meredith of Louisville's 91.9 WFPK radio station recently conducted an interview with new STONE TEMPLE PILOTS singer Jeff Gutt. You can now listen to the chat below. A couple of excerpts follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET). On what it has been like filling the shoes of iconic singers like Scott Weiland and Chester Bennington: Jeff: "For me, it's kind of different, 'cause to me, it's more a relationship with the guys in the band. It was a real long process of getting to know each other and getting comfortable with each other. 'Cause to us, that was just as important as what I bring to the table musically and stuff. It was a long process. And part of making the [new self-titled] record was part of that process as well. So it was really an organic thing that really worked. So I don't really think about all that stuff all that much. I just try to do what I can, control what I can, and let the rest handle itself." On whether he ever wondered to himself if he was the right guy to fill the vocalist spot in STONE TEMPLE PILOTS: Jeff: "You know what? 'Cause I love STP so much and it meant so much to me as a musician throughout my process — along with other bands too — but they were definitely one of those bands that influenced me and that I looked up to a lot, I just wanted to continue their journey — for them. I feel...
