Given the choice of touring for another year or more behind 2009′s ‘War Is the Answer’ or “jump right back in the studio” and make another album, Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Jason Hook and his band mates chose the latter option.
There’s no mistaking Metallica‘s thick guitar attack and Lou Reed‘s spoken, attitude-driven vocals in ‘The View,’ a 38-second sample of which can be heard now online in advance of their joint album, ‘Lulu.’
A friendly rivalry, trying to be better than the next guy — members of Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer all have a slightly different way to describe their relationship with one another back in the day.
They’re on good terms lately, proven by the fact they’ve shared the same concert stage this year in California and New York, collectively billed as the Big 4. And while the metal bands are still competitive, it’s more self-contained now that they’re “out of the sandbox” and all grown up, according to Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich.
After reportedly spending Tuesday in a hospital bed due to a neck-related injury, Mustaine and his band rocked Yankee Stadium in New York on Wednesday night along with fellow Big 4 bands Metallica, Anthrax and Slayer.
With his third solo album, 2009′s ‘Scream,’ Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell surprised and frustrated longtime fans by abandoning heavy guitars and exploring more pop- and hip-hop-flavored textures.
So what should the Soundgarden faithful expect from the recently reunited band, which is working on its first studio album since 1996? According to Cornell, something unlike its back catalog, but not necessarily a drastic departure, either.
Finishing fourth on ‘American Idol’ isn’t necessarily detrimental to a music career, especially for singers whose registers are best suited for rock.
Things have turned out just fine for Chris Daughtry, season five’s fourth-place finalist. And so far, the likelihood for sustained success is looking good for the season 10 equivalent, James Durbin, who recently signed a contract with Wind-up Records.
