Also, we chat to Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor about the UK tour, let Korn legend Jonathan Davis let off some political steam, jump in the studio with Slash, check out Foo Fighters sticksman Taylor Hawkins’ new band and, in a year where Down, Eyehategod and Crowbar are all releasing smashing new opuses, take a trip down memory lane to revisit the incredible scenes that took place during the New Orleans 90s metal boom. You won’t believe some of the snaps and stories we’ve got hold of…
Plus, we delve into the dark and unwavering mind of Triptykon mainman Tom G Warrior, head out on tour with Monster Truck for this year’s epic Lords Of The Riff, play Battle Move Top Trumps with Sabaton and dig into the amazing mythology behind the ace new Bury Tomorrow album!
We also catch up with ex-Killswitch Engage man Howard Jones and find out why he left the biggest metalcore band in the world (and why he’s returned with Devil You Know), discover why Black Stone Cherry’s Chris loves a bit of Justin Timberlake and discover what all the Thunder From Down Under is regardless fast-rising tech-metalcore crew Northlane.
All this plus Red Fang, Dream Theater, Mayhem, Five Finger Death Punch, DevilDriver, Clutch, Killer Be Killed and much more!
